Service croc? Is that the one that makes his face a platter?
Sorry, this is actually a serious subject.
I'm not sure what I think except that I agree with the ideas Tes yeux noirs said he/she read were rules here.
I'm a dog crazy person, love them dearly, and fully understand people emotionally iffy in the first place, which can be many of us, being stressed not being with them. On the other hand, my b.s. signal range is yipping re the amount of insistence. I've also tested 4+ allergic to dogs. 4+ to cats too, but I'm much more so to cats.
In real life, I've had a hard time with only one dog ever; ironically, since they are famously not so allergy causing, she was a poodle named Marvel. When we left that friend's house, I would be bordering on full on asthma. Yes, I had had a couple of years of allergy shots back then. Meh!
On the other hand, I've lived with and loved several dogs and even a few cats. Dogs in particular are, to me, very much steadiers, and I need to see them often, if only walking on down the street with their persons.
I was allergic to our cats but not enough to not be around them, and only mildly allergic to our irish setter. Very mildly allergic to Pacco the corgi (at bath time, similar to the setter) and not at all to Katy the beautiful shepherd.
I am happy to see cats in bookstores and dogs waltzing around a pet shop and don't have a reaction in that amount of time. But I bet some people could have trouble with that.. not sure.
Am interested in others' opinions.
Me, now I have a pet furry stuffed sea otter I found in a thrift shop. She sits near the window and can make me sense I'm at home if I wake up and look in that direction..
