Dogs are quite cute until they make a mess in my property

STEVE CANAVAN: Aisle need to improve on my supermarket social skills

Have your say

The old saying goes that house guests are like fish because they go off after three days.

Human guests, that is, as a dog guest’s welcome dissolves as soon as they shed hair.

We have dear friends who visit several times a year and they love their dogs.

I, on the other hand, do not. They are quite cute at first sight, until they defecate in my property.

I’ve started to suspect my own dog of doctoring their food in order to get some divine retribution.

This would be for the fact that they’re allowed on laps, and he – at a hefty four stones – is not.

Could it be a devious dog trick to lace their Pedigree Chum with laxatives?

Or is it more simple? They see the mess and think they should add to it?
