Living with animals brings a lot of joy to a home, but it can also presents some challenges. In this episode, Chris & Julia talk about their life with Charly, their 150 lb St. Pyrenees. They share how she has influenced the renovation decisions they've made, and how they handle things like hair, drool and ... accidents...

And if you're not an animal lover, they also discuss some common courtesies that all pet owners appreciate, and how to approach visits with your friends who may have pets.
