I do a lot of purchasing on eBay as I'm sure a lot of you do as well, and I'm always confused when the the seller claims 'pet free home.' I can understand claiming smoke free home, because smoke definitely taints a figure. But whose dog is so nasty and repugnant that their odor transfers onto a figure? I've had dogs my entire life, and at no time would I consider them smelly. Even if they slept on top of a figure every day, I have a hard time imaging it smelling.
