I have a dilemma. My in laws have this wild, vicious dogs their kids found and brought home. We were going to go over to their house this summer for a barbeque with the caveat that if the dog did not behave himself while we were there that we would go to my mother in laws house instead. When we got there they were restraining the dog in the back yard by holding him by the collar. This dog was lunging at their glass doors trying to get in to where we were. Snarling and barking. My SIL had my hubby go up to the door and the dog was jumping up on the glass teeth bared. They brilliantly decided to open the glass door and attempt for my hubby to give the dog a treat. The dog looked like it was going to rip my husband's face off. We had to leave. I told my husband there is no way I was going over to that house with the kids with that dog there. I mean why on earth would anyone keep an animal that was so vicious that you couldn't have any company, especially family? SIL said well the dog loved grandma. Fantastic! It HATES us. Now I know my husband, and I know he won't be able to stand not seeing his family for the holidays. We could invite them over to our house but they won't come over. It's too far, our house is too small, yadda, yadda. Am I wrong here? I mean even if they put the dog in the backyard, I wouldn't feel comfortable being there. What if someone accidently opened the door? And do I really want to be there for several hours with a violent dog barking and jumping on the glass door bearing it's teeth at my family? What if the dog got out? Arrgghh! This is so ridiculous!
