Response from Eric:
Floriane and her friend cancelled the first night of their stay less than 48 hours before they were scheduled to arrive, but I agree as I always do out of courtesy to our guests. When they did arrive it was late, I can't remember exactly what time but my wife had already gone to bed, hence the abrupt and less than perfectly courteous greeting.
We do not currently and have never had a dog, so how our "lobby" could "smell dog" is beyond me. We say that we are dog friendly for travelers who might wish to bring their pet. We have never used our bathtub because the drain doesn't function properly, hence we do not clean it often, it mostly serves as a storage area behind a bath curtain. I specifically point out to all our guests that our shower is separate from the bathtub, a strange set up I'll admit but we rent, what are you gonna do. Our shower is cleaned regularly.
You will likely see clothes drying in our apartment, we do not have a dryer and choose to save money/energy by airdrying. I am sorry Floriane and her friend had a difficult stay, but maybe a hotel would be better for them next time.
