I've been looking around the site for postings on this but couldn't find any.  I've asked my vet about second hand smoke and dogs back when i first got Gaby, and she said that it was extremely bad for dogs to breathe and can cause asthma and other related breathing diseases.  I have nothing against smokers but i think smoking should be done outside...Unfortunately, I'm currently living with my parents who refuse to smoke outside or even confine it to one area in the house....one smokes 2.5 packs a day and the other a half pack, so this makes for a very smoky environment to be living in....To me there is nothing more important than the health and well being of my boxer...she's my best friend and deserves the best.  So what I did a couple of days after I got her is I completely sealed of my room and bought and air purifier so we could have clean air to breathe....it works great!
The only problem is that I'm in here ALL the time except when I take Gaby for walks and outside for potty. You would think that they would have considered my opinion since my dad had a heart attack and a triple bypass about 7 years ago, but I guess not.  It would be interesting to get some of your opinions and suggestion on this topic.

thanks to all who replied you all make good points....I will tell you a little more about the situation; my parents and I run a family business from the house, and of course I would like to move out on my own asap, but the business isn't making enough money yet for me to draw a wage and be on my own....I do understand that it is there house and there rules, however I am contributing a big part of the financial intake of the home, so you would think that they could accommodate me somewhat by smoking outdoors or at least confine it to a certain area.
