Do any of you expect your dogs to live outdoors primarily? My dh does not like dogs in the house so they have to stay out all the time...especially when he is home. I let them in when he is not around because I enjoy and need their companionship. I tried to settle this difference with my dh but he is determined he will not live in the house with the animals....I thought we had this understanding before we got the dogs and I think it is his attempt to make it inconvenient for me to have the dogs...he likes material things and hates that I spend any money on them. Actually I work so I feel like my money can be spent as I please...especially if I pay the majority of the bills anyway. :bash: Well not to get off track...I am not the submissive type of wife but I do not like to argue and disrespect others anyway. We do live in the South (Texas) so the climate is not that harsh...but it is hot as you know what in the summer. I like my pooches to be part of the family. How do you all feel about your fur babies?
