1. The dog's lives here. You don't. 2. If you don't want dog hair on your clothes, stay off the furniture. 3. Yes, they have some disgusting habits. So do I and so do you. What's your point? 4. OF COURSE they smell like a dog. 5. It's his nature to try to sniff your crotch. Please feel free to sniff his. 6. I like him a lot better than I like most people. 7. To you they are dogs. To me they are adopted kids who are short, hairy, walk on all fours and don't speak clearly. I have no problem with any of these things. 8. Dogs are better than kids. They eat less, don't ask for money all the time, are easier to train, usually come when called, never drive your car, don't hang out with drug-using friends, don't smoke or drink, don't worry about whether they have the latest fashions, don't wear your clothes, and don't need a gazillion dollars for college.
