Well, I have to say that I'm having to leave all three of my dogs nehind for this trip to my in-laws, but it's not because they don't like my dogs. It's because my SIL and her family have moved in with them. Her family includes a GSD, who, in my MIL's words, "doesn't really like other dogs". Sooo, mixing a GSD who isn't dog friendly with a mutt who is dog-reactive.... not a good idea. They are helping us out with the cost of boarding Ilka, though (everyone else is staying at the house with a sitter).

ETS: Two of my dogs have taken out windows at their house. A couple of years ago, Lucky took out the slider portion of a patio window (needed 7 stiches), and last year, Ilka took out the other side of the same window (No vet bill for her, at least).

My mother told me along time ago, marry an orphan. My mother was a smart women. My husband was adopted when he was a baby and both of them have passed. He does have a sister (adopted also, not related). We didn't meet until we had been married for 10 years. My family had always liked my husband (maybe more than me), and always said bring the dogs, sometimes we had 3 at a time. My mother had been bitten when she was a child, so she always was a little frightened by big dogs. No one ever told us not to bring them or not to have them out when they visited. I think they knew the what the answer would be.

My only suggestion would be to find a local hotel/motel that allows dogs so you don't have to do the drive.... Older folks are different and well can be difficult but they are right, they won't be around forever. I never take my dogs to my mom's as her home just isn't dog friendly she loves dogs but her home doesn't.

Again, thanks for the comments all.

We had considered renting a hotel room for the night (Christmas day through the morning of the 26th) but my S.O. was asked to take over for a project manager at work who is going on vacation; they have several pending deliverables that require attention, and he needs to be available the morning after Christmas. We're spending Christmas eve with a friend of ours in the Chicago area, so we wouldn't have been able to drive up the day before my MIL's party, either.

As stressful as it has been for us so far, we've already determined to make the drive up there. And as long as everyone remains civil and accepts our schedule, we will make the best of things. Who knows, maybe it will go better than we expect. <crosses fingers>

Gotta love the holidays. Makes you appreciate living away from your relatives for the rest of the year...

Last year I finally had to tell all our parents (hubby's included), that Christmas day is off-limits now because everyone thinks they are more important than the other family and since I'm sick of arguing about it, no more for anyone. Period. They brought it on themselves.

That's pretty much what I would say to your in-law's if I were you. Sorry, but if you want us to stay awhile, and our dogs aren't allowed, we won't be coming. But you are welcome to spend the day at our house. And if they don't like either of those choices, then oh well for them. Guess they better learn to use Skype
