Use baby gates and keep them out of the work room or any other area you want to have to yourself.
Yea, It not easy.Hi everyone, I'm having a bit of an issue and just needing to talk about something and not sure where to do it!
To start, I love dogs. And I love my dogs specifically, they're sweet and cute as heck. But I am so tired of seeing their faces all the time, especially knowing the following information:
It really seems to have intensified now that I work from home. I no joke have to lock myself away in my office in order to get some alone time, even though I'd really rather be sitting on the couch because my back is sore (I'm 6 months pregnant). I know pregnancy hormones might have a bit to do with how I'm feeling, but honestly it started before this. I've tried being patient and just loving them but I'm around them too much, especially now when it's winter and I can't send them into the fenced yard for a while. And one of them I don't fully trust- he has nipped my husband once and growled at me twice but he is the light of my husband's eye and it's impossible to rehome him, even though I'm nervous he'll hurt the baby one day.
- they only seek me out when they are hungry or want to go outside, while they will cuddle with my husband all day long. They will quite literally walk over me in order to give him kisses and not even give a crap about me, despite me calling to them.
- they will just stare at me, usually with pathetic faces, for HOURS. Especially if I'm eating, although I've really trained them not to beg.
- even the cat irritates me a bit- he will only ever clean himself right in front of me and when it's quiet and I'm trying to concentrate, hearing him do that really grinds my gears.
I want to go out of town or something and be away from them a little bit to get a breather but darn Covid has us locked down and so it's not a possibility (or not a good one).
Any suggestions on what to do? Please don't eat me alive for this, I truly love them but they're just too much sometimes!
