I used to have a friend that would bad mouth animals. She literally hated all animals. She went to one of my friends houses to visit and left because my friend had a shiz tzu. Lola was the most well behaved dog on top of being adorable. Needless to say, I am no longer friends with that person. I cannot have a person in my life who hates animals. I grew up in a house where we always had animals, but never more than three at a time. I suspect my mother wasn't too keen on animals, but my dad always allowed us to have them.
