I don't mind dogs so much, and most problems are the fault of the owners - but I'm sorry, I just don't want anything licking my face . . .
immediately after it's licked its own toot-blossom or eaten a fresh pile of cat-poop in the back yard. I know, some say "dogs have 'cleaner'
mouths than people" but If I just saw you lick your own butt, I wouldn't let you near me neither!
My BF has a weenie dog, and she's spoiled rotten, but she's not much trouble - but I'm really allergic to dogs - it's very annoying to sit on the
couch and everywhere your skin touches the couch you break out in hives. I like to come home and relax in the recliner, but having to make sure your
skin (especially on the face or near the eyes) doesn't touch any part of the upholstery isn't very relaxing at all.
I know, some people will say "well, your BF should keep her off the furniture" or "just get rid of the dog" - But I can't ask him to get rid of
her, she's been around longer than I have - and keeping her off the couch isn't a problem when we're not home, but when we're home, my BF has her
up in his lap and she crawls all over and around him, getting hair and dog spit EVERYWHERE! I can't ask him to just ignore her - and after she's
been all over him, I can't put my head on his shoulder or hug him or even inhale near him, or my allergies will go off - it's rather annoying (and
yes, I'm on allergy meds for dang near everything, even dogs, but they only keep me from swelling up to the point of choking on my own tongue, I
still can't find anything to keep direct contact between me and dog hair/spit from making be break out and sneeze, or welt up around my eyes)
And WHY do they just HAVE to stick that wet, colder-than-ice nose on EVERY exposed part of your skin? I've tried going to the freezer and getting an
ice cube and rubbing it on her when she does it so she'll know how it feels, but she just thinks I'm playing with her, rolls on her back and gives
me that 'cute'-"I'm so adorable, don't you just wanna eat me up?"-look. I've told her before and I'll tell her again, "those puppy-dog-eyes
don't work on Uncle Paul!" - You can smell me all you want, but must you touch me with that wet nose?
