I definitely can understand getting frustrated with 'furbabies'!!!
My brother in law's wife has 'furbabies' and they're nutty. 2 purebred Staffies. The older one suffers terrible anxiety and is somewhat neurotic. The puppy has had almost no training and destroys everything. Together they are a nightmare. They also work long hours so the dogs get bored.
The wife's family live 300km away and regularly they have to go visit. Often they can't bring the dogs so con MIL into dog sitting. At her house they try to escape, bark constantly and destroy the garden. MIL is big into her garden and was devastated when they destroyed her garden last time. They also pinched FIL's $600 prescription safety glasses out of his work bag and destroyed them. Along with some toys they keep their for my daughter.
I've reached the stage where I don't trust those dogs, they're kind of shifty and I fear they will hurt DD. but I can't say anything negative about her dogs. I have said they aren't allowed at our place as we live in a farming area.
If I ever said anything about their dogs it would be world war 3. I just think it's kind of wrong the life those dogs lead abd how they force them on others by taking them everywhere
