shiloh29 Posted March 19, 2007 Share Posted March 19, 2007 my husband's parents have 2 large dogs. they leave town a lot and have always expected that we dogsit their 2 dogs at our house. well, we have a pretty small house and we actually just got a dog of our own about 4 weeks ago. they were out of town a few weeks ago and i was able to convince my husband (even though he had already told his dad without talking to me that he would take them) to let our dog adjust to his new surroundings without having the distraction of another dog. well, his parents are heading out of town again and he told me last night that they had made arrangements for their dogs at a local kennel but that they would "appreciate" it if we were to look after them. so now i look like the bad person because i am turning them down! we really do have a small house and we have our own dog to take care of! am i being too mean about this? i guess when we are out of town i am planning on taking our dog to a kennel even if his parents offer, because i don't want to feel like we "owe" them. thoughts? this situation comes up a lot and i keep telling my husband that we don't have room and that we have our own dog, etc. i am trying to be nice about this but he isn't getting the message!
