Mary, I am laughing so hard about the salad bowl right now. I am so lucky; my in-laws are pretty nice to me, though my father-in-law stops speaking in English a few days into any visit. My husband clenches his teeth and says "Father, English" in a menacing tone. Uh, he's fluent. My mother-in-law is not fluent, but she seizes it as an opportunity to learn! Nice.

Peace, Love, and everything Groovy!

Matt's parents tried for several years to talk him out of marrying me. His dad crudely told him he was thinking with his little head instead of his big head.

Then they talked him into getting a prenup. Like I cared! I wasn't after his money.

Matt's sister even jumped in my face one time years ago and told me to shut up about something and she got in my space really close looking down at me really threateningly. She is about 6 ft tall and really "big boned." I am 5'3" and at the time, weighed 110. I told her to back her big you know what out of my face, and if she didn't do it real quick, I would rip her head off and use it for a salad bowl. that pretty much took care of her. So I have taken some crap from these ignorant people.

One thing about ol drill sgt. Mary is I don't eat crap well. Of course, she backed herself up and got away from me LOL

Wow! Some stories here. I am so lucky; my in-laws live in Europe, and they visit about once every 2 years. However, my husband's dad is a veterinarian, so he has seen just about everything with animals. Nothing would phase him. My mother-in-law is very accommodating as well; she absolutely adores Mighty Joe, and calls him "the little little dog'. No problems here.

I DO sympathize though!

HAHAHAHAHA Patsy you are a hoot!

When Matt's hateful mother came down here, April, being so loving, ran right up to her and she immediately backed away and said dont'' touch me! really loud. April stopped dead still, confused and scared. I called April, and said, Come Here April, stay away from that yankee! then I was whispering in her ear and made sure to say the word "cooties" in a really loud whisper! HAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!

That mean old woman had 3 poodles too. She ran over one of them herself with her car, but Matt said they went and got another that very same day. Matt did finally admit that they were probably more of a status symbol to her because he never saw her give them any affection. Status symbol!

I kept April away from that old heifer the whole time she was here. I hope she never comes back.

I don't mince my words with her because she is so hateful and caustic. I know Matt loves her, but I cannot abide her.

She comes from a very moneyed back ground and acts like everyone in the south has an out house in their front yards and if you put them All Together, they might have one set of teeth, total.

I think she forgets that her precious son has lived here for 18 years!

Hey!
I have to agree that my Chloe has loved me unconditionally. They never care what kind of mood your in what you look like or if the house is clean. Actually I have more toys on more floor now than when my boys were little. Its just too funny. To bad I can't teach my Chloe how to put her toys away.
This however is my home and as everyone her who has their poodle babies. I feel if they don't like it... Don't let the door knob hit ya where the good Lord split ya! Right. Mine doesn't understand the shoving away, which by the way ticks me off because she acts as if my Chloe is filthy. I told her today. Shes clean you know. I just gave her a bath she won't get you dirty. She just kinda half laughed and said oh I know. Ya right.
Like you said I have learned to count 1..2..3... Lord please deliver me!
Love All
Patsy

I don't have in laws, but if they are mostly like your's, it may be just as well. I try to keep BooBoo off of the couch because I just bought a new couch cover. but that was MY decision. If another person came to our home & sat on the couch, but shewed Boo off of it if & when he jumped up, I would not hesitate to tell them if they did not approve of the way I keep house, of me, or of anything that BooBoo does that I don't correct, they can leave any time they get ready!

Not with my in-laws. But others. My theory is this is our house and any animal companion in it should be respected. I will make them mind (used to have a bird that was out all the time & a lot of people dont' like birds. I asked him to give that person space). But with all of our critters, I will try to keep them off people if they don't want them, but by my rules not by them dissing my friend. We are down to just Maggie right now, but if you don't like her don't visit.

Call me obsessed but animals have feelings and when someone is in their environment, the humans need to be a bit flexible. And my animal companions have given me much more unconditional love and loyalty than 98% of the people in my life. Just my 2 cents. :)

(AND I AGREE 100% especially when it is my spot they are sitting in! ~ Maggie}

Sorry Patsy! I know some people like that, but I have been very fortunate. My Mother inlaw loves Ginger and sits and holds her and kisses her!
Mine and the hubbys family love her.
She is a wonderful Mother inlaw and thinks that I do everything perfect. I am really blessed!
When she comes to your house,just let Chloe stay right there, show the mother inlaw that its your house!

My mother in law had already passed away when we got Ava and Breea but with our poodle we had before them she would tell him to get away and I would say stuff like "he wants to sit by grandma". I mostly said it just to be a smart butt! I usually had to just call the dog to come and sit by me, just like you did.

When she would comment about the house I would say, "your son is slacking on the job" or "the maid didn't come" (she knew darn well we didn't have a maid)I was lucky that they lived close enough so that they didn't have to spend the night ever! Yet far enough so that they weren't here constantly either.

"Gotta" love the in-laws! I bet your tongue is bleeding. I have similar within-laws and my own parents. If I didn't know how to count to 10, I do now. Good luck!

I have to vent. My in-laws were at "MY" house and my Chloe was excited. She jumped on the couch and they were like get down, get off me. And wouldn't let her on the couch. EXCUSE ME! This is her house, her couch if you don't like it.... Leave. I bit my tongue so as not to cause I big scene. I just said, Come here Chloe and sit with mommy. I Love you. I just sweet talked her and hoped they'd get the point. Also mother-in-law comes in swipes the furniture and says how long since you dusted. Two days ago I said. Oh well I guess since you live on a dirt road its hard to keep clean. Grrrrrr!
I hate it when they come to my home and are constantly shewing baby away! Any of you have that problem?
