Do you share your bathroom with your Pet? It’s National Pet Day, why not?

I love my dogs, Juliette and Hamlet and my cat, Craig the female cat is coming around after almost 5 years.  Didn’t care much for human interaction until recently.

My dogs sleep on me, under the covers, on the pillows and yes, they get a little taste of people food too.  What I don’t do is share the bathroom with them.  That’s my one private room in the house.  Take a look at the surveys on the habits of pet owners below.
