Hmm so, this is more like a personal attack on me-- if its not pertained to the topic on this thread. Please don't bring up B into this thread Because you have asked this question let me explain--- With B, I didn't even know she didn't like pets until they showed up. However, they were well informed ahead "yes" and they didn't tell us to lock up the pets ahead. We usually don't have our dog (puppy then) when we entertain. [To be even more specific having puppy who was still being trained is hard to controll.. that is the reason why we had left our dog in the yard] We had our dog outside. After being told that B isn't ok with pets. As pet owners did we scramble around to make things comfortable for B yes we did. Its is highly inappropriate to go to your hosts house who (meaning my DH and I) had informed about the pets and her husband A had been to our house and spent time with our pets.. But but...B decides to speak up about how she is not ok with pets after she comes to our house...?? Everything seems like a fair game when it comes to pointing fingers at pet owners right?? If we had been informed ahead I doubt we would have entertained them with pets. Like we have been friends for almost 2 years without them actually coming home...maybe you didnt get to read all that... Unless you know the whole story maybe you should refrain from saying what is not rightly done as being a pet owner. Please don't use your imagination, experience and start pointing fingers here at me. So, even when everything was done as pet owner to accommodate out nonanimal loving guests. I still have to take blames from unknown people coz they associate with the feeling of "same fear" Actually, yes the things I had mentioned on the other thread all happened in a span of 2 years.. maybe you missed that part. But more concentrated on how I was bashed for being an inconsiderate pet owner. If the issue was just about my pet and B's friendship... hmm call me insensitive pet owner and a hypocrite.
