So my H's family is all spread out. His youngest brother lives with his F in Georgia.
Yesterday we were informed that H's grandmother (who lives in our town) was admitted to the hospital. She is 86, and it doesn't look all that great, TBH. SO the family calls BIL and lets him know what is going on and BIL makes arraignments to come up here with his F. I invite them to stay in our house in our spare guest room (we live in a mother/daughter and H's parents live in the downstairs apartment). The only request I have is that they do not bring their dogs ( a yorkie and a mastiff mix). I explained that between the baby, the dog we already have, and everyone being in and out of the house, etc that it would be too much and I was uncomfortable with it. He agreed to find arrangements.
This morning I get a text from him saying that he talked to MIL and that the dogs are staying downstairs. This is a huge problem for me as the baby stays downstairs when being babysat, and with everything happening we spend a lot of time down there. Last time they brought the dogs they pretty much left my MIL (62, heart problem, etc) to care for the dog/walk them/etc.
I'm very upset tat despite our conversation they still went ahead and decided to being the dogs. I asked if they could please kennel the dogs to which they replied "No, we are already spending 400.00 to come up there". I don't see how that is my problem.
How do I handle this situation without being a cunt?
I mean I Know they are coming up on short notice, and l know the reason they are coming is not a joyus one but I do Feel that we should not be obligated to house their animals.
