Dear Abby: My co-worker made no attempt to control the dogs

DEAR ABBY: My husband and I attended a party at the home of one of my co-workers. There were about 15 guests.

The problem was the homeowner’s pets — two dogs that live inside. They were allowed to roam freely during the party.

They barked each time a guest knocked or rang the doorbell, and they jumped on each person who entered. They hovered at people’s feet waiting for food to drop or to be given to them.

It felt like we were expected to pet the animals and interact with them whether we wanted to or not. The homeowner made no attempt to control the dogs or keep them away from any of the guests.

I don’t dislike animals, but I don’t want other people’s pets jumping on my clothes, trying to lick me or getting close to my food.
