    Im lucky i guess, both Mum and MIL don't mind animals in the house as they have always had indoor animals anyway. Bit bizarre as Mum is a huge clean/neat freak but she still doesn't mind the animals indoor, just means the vacuum cleaner is on nearly 24/7 LOL

    The rest of my family wouldn't find animals inside idyllic - they also have the clean freak gene especially my grandparents who i love and adore (i call them mum & dad) lucky for me they all live back in NZ. But when they do visit, the dogs will have to go sleep in the garage, it won't kill them to stay out there for a week.

    However because of the pups i would definitely not be kicking them outside.

    My side of the family are dog people. My mum believes dog hair is a condiment in food so I'm fine there We dog sit for each other on a regular basis.

    My partners side tolerate pets inside. They have 2 small fluffies which are confined to the kitchen with a baby gate and a doggy door leading outside. The cat has free-run of the house. They dog-sat for us once and the dogs aren't welcome back because my incontinent girl peed on her dogs beds (in her sleep).

    my own family now :-) I think because I am the only son in our family

    My mum and I are pretty good, I can tell her everything - I mean everything and she does the same. She was only 16 when she had me so there isn't that many years in between us which makes it much easier. my MIL and whole family in law are kind of oddish (best way to describe it) they weren't the family to show love and all that and I find it really hard to talk to them sometimes. They all love dogs though so none of them mind having hair everywhere! lol

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    My now ex-MIL is a totaly neat freak and a 'keeping up appearances' kind of person. She just got 2 dogs herself, but they are strictly outside only dogs. I am sure she disaproves strongly about our dog and cat always being inside and sleeping on beds and couches, but she never says anything, so I don't care.

    I did never forgive her though for not allowing my ex's dog to come to our wedding! Thoug of course it was really his fault for giving into her.

    Well mum is out today visiting her friends here in brissy as she used to live here too
    I'll just be glad when she's heading home tbh I'm a very upfront person and just say it like it is and yes sometimes it might come across like I'm just being a bitch but I'm not I'm just very honost I think
    That's why me and mum have a hard time getting along she just does lots of these smartass remarks all the time if is not about the dogs it's the boys or my OH I'm just sick of it
    She asked if I could take the kids to sea world this weekend so she could come with us and I just said we honostly can't afford it at the moment mum and then she said why? Is that because of tips?
    And I said yes mum it is but we don't regret anything we have done then mum said it would have just been easier to put her down Liss then your boys wouldn't be missing out....
    Omg I lost it my boys are in no way missing out on anything sea world is not something they NEED and if u think it's do ****ing important u pay and take them!!!
    I really think I need to break all contact with her

    Hm, the family dog's life or a trip to Sea World. Tough decision. Not only is she way out of line for her to criticise your decision, but it is infuriating that she still goes on about it now when it's way too late to change anything anyway. That would make me scream at her too.

    Maybe you can try tell her that is she doesn't stop criticising all your decisions and the way you live your life, it is futile trying to continue the relationship as you cannot see what either of you is getting out of it?
