Hi all, I wondered if anyone has been in a situation whereby supposedly (close friends) are constantly winding you up. I am considering getting a small dog through a charity (good one). I have had cavs in the past and my last one died three years ago. I have thought about it quite extensively and talked it over with hubby. At the weekend the charity did a home check and mentioned that the fencing along the back of the garden (4ft) needed to be (6ft). Okay no problem, hubby said he would get that sorted. I mentioned this to my friend of many years (who is inseparable from her sister) and all she did was go on about how she would not pay any money for a dog and would not have one due to the fact that she works and that any dog should be be grateful for a home. She phoned again today and I mentioned that hubby has made a start on the fencing at the back of the garden and will be hopefully get it sorted at the weekend. She just laughed and said, oh your getting your dog then!!. I did say that some of the panels had blown down during the recent bad winds and need repairing anyway. "you don't have to justify yourself" was the reply...."if you getting a dog, then just say so".....what is all that about? Heard her sister going on in the background and said "you might want a dog, but bet your hubby does not".. Then said we are just wining you up....well I made an excuse and ended the call. Felt awful after and maybe I am a bit sensitive today and trying to make sense of it all. I am sure I will have a better day tomorrow. Has anyone been in a situation like this.
