Tell Me About It
Dear Carolyn: My husband and I adopted a dog that does not like strangers; he is in intensive training and part of that is having strangers over to our house to practice meeting people. I usually invite a friend over after explaining the situation to them and promising free dinner and drinks.
I invited Katie over last month, and she proceeded to invite 10 mutual friends to my party while we were all out as a group, leaving me in a really awkward spot.
I ended up canceling because 900 square feet plus 10 strangers and a nervous dog is a terrible combination I never would have signed up for.
