I SO RELATE!  It was so tough getting used to my FI’s dog.  We put the couch pillows down so that she won’t jump up on the couch (she thinks she’s entitled to a soft comfy couch or chair where ever she goes…her big soft, fluffy bed isn’t enough for her). She also just stares at you all the time.  You know when you are doing something and you just feel like someone is watching you?  I turn around and there she is….expressionless. It’s creepy. She doesn’t sleep either!  I joke with Fiance that she never sleeps! She would jump up on the bed and walk all over us if we made ANY movement or sound in the morning. She humped my leg like a maniac everytime I got within arm’s length of Fiance for the first few months (until I finally was able to say no and sort of lightly kick her off).  She begged at the table for scraps – going back and forth between people until they gave her something.  Sorry, where I come from, the dog eats from her bowl.  Yes, treats are given, but in HER bowl.  I will not live in a house where I put my food down and turn around for a second to have it gone.

All I can say is – I’m SORRY. It sucks.  I”m glad he pays you, but since she is in your house, she lives by your rules.  Work with her as you would your own dog.

We frequently dog sit for a friend.  Her dog is well behaved and gets along with our dogs, but he eats their food and sits on furniture we don’t allow dogs to sit on.  I totally understand your frustration.

My dog is the shedder in my household, and I totally know what you mean.  She sheds so much fur I could glue a week’s worth of fur together to make a whole other dog.

OMGOSH I’m a cat person too…100%  I LOVE to be ignored.  I can’t stand that the dog is there where ever we go.  I’ve owned dogs, I love dogs, but man, the constant need for attention is too much sometimes.  I’ve mastered “go lay down.” LOL – thank the Lord she loves her kennel/bed.
