We are considering dog-sitting my friend Dianna's two dogs. She suspects that her son's allergy probem may be caused by the dogs. The only real way to know for sure is to get the dogs out of the house for a couple of weeks, clean it thoroughl to remove all trace of dog hair, and then wait to see if his allergies clear up.
This dog in the photo is very sweet and wouldn't be much of a problem I don't think. Her other dog makes me nervous. It's a small pug that's very noisy, hostile to the brown & white dog, and jumps up on everyone. I'm currently debating the merits of whether I should do this or not.
