How do you politely approach an inconsiderate roommate?

My roommate, who also happens to be my cousin, has a two year old and a newborn baby. She leaves things everywhere, she dominates the television, and a couple of weeks ago she brought home a ten month old puppy, making a total of four dogs in my house. This would all be ok except she is never home to take care of her dog. She leaves him loose and he gets into everything. She's very sensitive though. I've heard her fight with her ex husband ever since she moved in and I don't want her to be angry with me, but I also don't want another dog to take care of...

    Thanks. She has spent all day looking for a new place. Ironically no apartment wants her to move in with the breed of dog she has. She seems less angry with me now but knowing her I'm probably still a horrible person behind my back. Fine with me.

    I do agree. Some people just don't appreciate it when you are kind-hearted and think they can walk all over you. She certainly should have asked your permission before bringing home a puppy, too. What an awkward position to be in. I hope it works out
