Am I mean if I hate watching my husband's brothers dog?

My husbands brother asked him if I would watch his dog. I hate watching his brother's dog's.
1. They smell so bad that even giving them a bath makes it worst.
2. They ask my husband knowing I will be home watching them. I feel it's more respectful to call me and ask.
My husband gets so upset with me because I don't want to. I think I have good reasons not to but no I'm always the bad guy. It is so frustrating.

Not at all. 

I would never ask someone to watch my dogs at their house and I would never watch other peoples dogs at mine.

I love dogs.   Our whole life revolves around our dogs.   If dogs are not allowed at a place, we don't go.   

And I think that taking care of your brother in law's dogs is not something you should be pressured to do if you don't want to do it.

I also think that if the dogs stink that bad, they are eventually going to get a skin infection or other health problem from such poor basic care.

I love dogs. We had a good dog die a few months back. I have no problem watching other people's dogs. I just hate watching my brother in laws dogs. The smell is just so hard to deal with.

Thank you! My husband makes me feel like a bad person for saying no and whenever it comes to his family I feel like I'm obligated to say yes. I have there dog now and it's stressing me out because not only do I need to watch there dog we have to get ready to move in a week.

There are no dogs in my house, ever! 1. I'm allergic 2. I feel animals are gross so I don't want them in here. My mil and fil had to live with us for 3 months while their house was being built...I made them find somewhere for their dog. It wasn't coming here. So I'm a real bitch lol

I assume this is your attempt at sarcastic humor.
