I do not understand why you let your dog in the bathroom when you are showering/bathing. Dogs have fur. And perhaps you haven’t noticed, but we the humans do not come with fur. There is a reason for this. The fur sticks to the wet. And when you allow your dog in the bathroom to lounge on the rug, I cannot step onto the rug without acquiring a new coat.
See…I am not averse to pets in the house. I wanted a cat, but you won’t let me get a cat. The dog, though. Oh, the dog is fine. This dog that is too big for the house. I cannot eat, I cannot watch a movie, I cannot sit at my computer, I cannot escape to the bathroom. Always, the dog is there. And the dog has fur. And the fur is there. I am tired of the dog, and I am tired of the fur.
