So just explain to me one thing....why do you have them to begin with?
Luba, if you ever get the answer to that, please let me know. It's something that puzzles me every time I see dogs around here (that people deliberately went and got) kept in garages, pens, or chained outside.
What are the thought processes?...I can only conclude it must be something like this:
"Okay, I'm allergic to dogs/have new hardwood floors/can't stand the hair/don't believe in dogs in the house/don't want them on the furniture/am too lazy to train one/can't afford a vet so I think I'll go get a dog!"(??)
If I didn't want a dog around, I certainly wouldn't go and get one!
