What would be the nicest way for my DH and I to invite over a friend who never leaves her dog at home (unless she's going to work or somewhere the dog isn't allowed in legally)?? We're not animal people. We don't hate animals, we just don't have any pets aside from hermit crabs and fish, but we're 100% ok with that. We may get a dog when our kids are a little older. We grew up with dogs and know how to care for them. ...We just don't want them now. Anyway, her dog is somewhere between puppy age and adult age but she's not very well trained. Last time I saw her she jumped on me and ripped the hell out of my skirt. It really pissed me off because it didn't even seem like my friend was training her not to jump on people. We REALLY want to invite this friend of ours over along with everyone else...but I know she is going to want to bring the dog. What should we do? I don't want to hurt her feelings at all.
