As some of you may recall, I work with my brother in law. My neice joined us about two years ago and a few months ago, she bought herself an adorable puppy - a cute little boston terrier. She brings her to work every day. Her office is like a playroom for dogs. And of course, my brother in law just loves this pup. I wouldn't care if I wasn't allergic to this dog. It's not bad yet, as she's only been here a few months and we have our office cleaned weekly. But I fear it's just a matter of time before her hair and dander begin to bother my allergies. I've dropped some fairly clear hints about my allergies and the dog's presence but nothing. Also, brother in law was always uptight about having meetings and everything being perfect (we even have to dress especially nice on those days) and having it catered. If I brought one of my dogs into the office, I'm sure he'd poop his pants over it...but for some reason, this little dog zipping around the office (and sometimes even peeing or pooping in the office) doesn't bother him. During one meeting, the room was full of about 14 men, pup wandered in. I called her out and brother in law said, "Oh, we could use a little comedy relief, it's okay" - So, I realize neice is his daughter and the pup is like a grandfurbaby, but this IS a place of business and I am allergic to this dog. I KNOW if I were to go to brother in law or neice and ask her not to bring in the pup due to my allergies, I would basically be shunned and/or made fun of by their entire family. So, what do I do?? I was thinking about getting an air cleaner for my office just to at least keep the allergens down in there, since that's where I am most days. The dog has freedom throughout the office and in the afternoons, neice plays with her by throwing her toys down my end of the hall and the dog runs back and forth for about 20 minutes. So, she's kicking up dander and fur for sure. Neice even told me that pup has started to shed really bad at home. Ugh....that means she's shedding here also. What do I do??
