  • I hate dogs now.

  • I wouldn't say that I hate them. I am definitely more aware of how dirty and complicated they make things. My MIL's dog stays with us when they travel and I love the dog but she always leaves hair everywhere, sleeps on the furniture and it's really hard to figure out how to walk her with an infant/toddler. She's a really good dog too. She doesn't chew things, she's good around our son, and she's generally very clean. If it were any other dog I don't think I'd take them.

  • I don't hate animals, but I don't feel comfortable with them roaming the house now with kids. Animals are unpredictable, so are kids, never a good combo. I think if you have a basement or garage, that's a good place for a cat or dog.

  • Dogs complicate my life BADLY now!
    My daughter tries to feed them, so they beg always now, they try to steal her food etc. Dog hair sucks, the barking sucks, me having to keep her from bugging the dogs so they don't snap at her sucks etc etc etc etc! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

  • I don't hate animals. I am allergic to them. But even if I weren't, I would not have one. Just too much to chase after and keeping babies out of that food and litter boxes and all the other animal stuff, ugh no thanks.
