Today's Social Dilemma is something I have an issue with from time to time depending on my friends. This email came from Emma
Hi Jaime. I have a question for your social dilemma and I hope you'll read this on the air. It's something I deal with all the time when it comes to my friends, and I'm wondering if others deal with it too. I have pets...one dog and two cats to be specific. I love them like they're my kids. Because of that, my animals get to go everywhere in my house. I can't go to the bathroom without one of the cats following me in. But I like it that way. They're my babies. However, I have some friends that hate having the animals around when they come to my house. And it's not because of allergies, it's just because they don't want pet hair on them, or don't want to deal with them. At first I would lock the animals out of the living room and kitchen when certain friends came, but now I think that's wrong. I've decided that the animals live here and it's their house so they get to go where they want, and my friends don't have to come over if they don't like it. They say I'm putting too much emphasis on animals. I say they're my babies. But they don't understand that. What do you do? I know you have cats and dogs. And I know others do too. I would love to hear what they think is the best way to handle this. Thank you so much Jaime. Love listening in the morning. Have a good day. ~ Emma
For me, my animals rule the house. I always say, it's their house and I just live there. So yeah, animals come first. What do you think?
