We have 2 small dogs who i actually do love very much... I always had dogs growing up and I would love for my kids to have a dogs that "grows up with them"... BUT I really cant take it anymore... it is actually more my husband and not the dogs that I have a problem with.
We live in a tiny little house that is falling apart... we rent it but our landlord said we can fix it up ( do whatever we want to it) and that pets are aloud.... After a year we realize how crappy this house is and it is a money pit ( we made it look nice, but things are falling apart and stop working) plus she just uped our rent - not to mention we have no money, he lost his job. I have to babysit just to pay our bills.
My husband swore that he would train the dogs ( to go outside), well a year later and our white carpet is ruined ( that is even more money gone when i have to keep buying carpet cleaner) . But the topper is *continued below*
