Just wanted to let you know my sister and family have come and gone, and all went very well!! The dogs were on their best behavior. My house was clean, My husband and I tried to be the best hosts and I think we succeeded. My nephew had a blast w/ all the animals. My dogs loved him, they followed him everywhere. The dogs had special treats to occupy them. We let the dogs run more than usual and that seemed to let off some steam for them. We kept the guest room door closed at all times, and we were out and about so much that it wasn't much of an issue. Thanks to all for the advice!! It was fun, but I'm glad to get my quiet house back.
