We have two large dogs in the house and it doesn't smell "doggy" the price I pay though, is that I vacuum every day as opposed to once a week for my non doggie friends. Luckily our house is small so it doesn't take long! My non-animal owning friends just seem to have more time.. I get home from work and have to walk dogs and feed horses, they just get to sit and relax. On days when the weather is bad, they get to stay in and I still have to go out, but I actually see that as a positive thing..
The main difference between my pet-owning and non-pet owning friends is that the latter just don't get it!
