My humans threw away my favorite textile rug, and in its place is ugly, wall-to-wall, red shag carpet! I don’t know how to broach the subject to them, but it really is the most hideous thing I’ve ever seen. How can I tell them it’s ugly without hurting their feelings?

Dear Daniel III,
It’s always good to be honest to your friends and family about interior decorating, but don’t expect them to agree with you. If you don’t like it, tell them nicely how you feel. Remember: Honesty in a dog equals Quality in a dog.
