Since their only child moved away, Ann has been driving Francis bonkers with the way that she spoils their pet.
Francis understands that Ann is just having empty nest syndrome or something but the way she treats this pet is just ridiculous. Ann spoils this pet way more than she ever did with her son. Francis knows that it really drives the animal crazy too. The other day, Ann just went completely over the edge when she called up our local HVAC company to have them come out and install a special furnace unit for the pet in the backyard. Francis told her that this was the craziest thing that he had ever heard of, and Ann just looked at him like he was a crazy person. Ann said that sometimes the pet gets too cold when he is outside in his pet house. She said that it only makes sense for them to put a heating & cooling system in the pet house because he needs to be just as comfortable as they are inside of their house. Francis rolled his eyes and informed Ann that indoor air pollen levels just are not as big of an issue when you are a pet. She said that that was not a fact at all and that the pet deserves to breathe air just as good as they breathe inside of their house. Ann is even thinking about installing an air cleaner in the pethouse! Francis does not know at what point he should honestly put his foot down about this whole thing, but he knows he’s getting close.
