In particular....dog haters. I hate them. I am completely blown away how people can HATE and think a tiny 5 pound chihuahua is DISGUSTING! WTF!
Story behind this rant:
We went to a wedding last night with my husband's mother, his sister and his sister's husband. It turned into a brutal night of drama (as I should have expected considering his family is full of drama ALL of the time!) Most of it came from BIL, who may I remind you is the one who told me his wife was a fat cow when she was pregnant and I was lucky I wasn't the one who had to sleep with her! He's a total arrogant ass.
So, last weekend BIL and SIL went to Montreal and left there 2 month old baby as MIL's for the weekend. Since MIL owns a hair salon and Saturday is a super busy day hubs and I decided that to be nice we would offer to go there and babysit all day Saturday so she didn't have to cancel her clients. We proposed this idea weeks before they were leaving and everyone agreed, and we were really excited to spend time with our nephew!
Then comes last Friday night. MIL calls and tells us she isn't going to work anymore b/c all of her appts cancelled (ya right!), but of course still expects us to come for a visit. Fine. I'm annoyed b/c she always changes plans on us and now we are forced to drive and hour there at 8am and spend the WHOLE day (not fun in my opionion!). But whatever. We go. I joke that she doesn't trust us with the baby...not really taking it too seriously. So we spend the whole day with bossy MIL, handicapped cranky FIL and our nephew (and of course our puppy Cosmo...)
Fast forward to last night...SIL comes us to me and tells me that the reason that MIL didn't go to work is because she and BIL didn't trust that I would keep my dog off of their baby! Then BIL has a "talk" with my hubs. He tells my husband that he doesn't want our dog in the same house as his kid, and that hubby's parents and sister hate the dog and don't want him around but are scared to tell us. He said that he doesn't want Cosmo's (the dog) fur in the vicinity of his baby's breathing. And he asked why I thought it was ok to bring our dog to other people's houses. He pretty much expected my husband to agree with him and say that Cosmo will never be around again. But my husband made me proud. He told BIL that we would never let Cosmo maul his baby but if he doesn't want Cosmo around then he will likely see less of us. We work all week and on the weekends we are not going to leave Cosmo home alone whenever we go out of town for the entire day! (All of my inlaws live an hour away). I was so pissed off. He is so lame. I hate people that hate dogs (ok, not really ...but you get my point). And in our defence, we only bring our dog to our family's houses and if we ever want to bring him any where else we ALWAYS ask...but that rarely happens anyways. He doesn't understand that having a dog is a responsibility and we have adopted Cosmo into our family and I LOVE him with all of my heart! At the moment we have NO kids and Cosmo is our baby! I can't believe how much of a dick he is. So, who knows what will happen now. Obviously more drama will ensue...as per usual with BIL!
Anyways, if you made it this far and love dogs...tell me about your pups! I love them more than I love my in laws for sure!
Love you Cosmo! xoxo
