This day SUCKS

Well the day I feared has finally come. My wife has given me an unltimatum, either my much loved dog's go, or she does.


After looking around none of the shelter's locally operate a no kill policy. I'm dammed if I'm going to do that to my dog's.


I just don't know what to say, I'm lost for word's.

What is her reasoning?
Is the dog aggressive towards her or others?

A similar thing happened to my wife's uncle. His wife was constantly belittling him and putting him down. All he had that he loved were his two pointers.
She forced him to get rid of them. After he had nothing left and was essentially a broken man she divorced him and became a lesbian.

Lock both in your trunk all day, when you open it, who is happy to see you? There's your choice.

Im sorry to hear this man. Unless the dogs are threatening toward her I wouldn't do it. It's not that you love them more than her but that she doesn't love you enough to make the sacrifice. She is clearly not happy right now and has it in her mind that this is the reason. You will get rid of your dogs and she will see that they are not the reason and leave you anyways. Then you will be without her and the dogs.

Dogs are not disposable. If you go along with this there will be something else soon, you will have the same results AND you will have lost your dogs.

It will be easier for her to find a new home than the dog. Just saying.......

Sorry you are in that spot. If she has that kind of attitude, even if you toss the dog out, I doubt she will be around for any great length of time anyway. Good luck.

People that want you to get rid of the things you love need a re-evaluation.

Such a shame - I'm sure she had some good points....

If you're considering getting rid of the pup, give us some info. I know a few folks in the area interested in another dog.

I don't deal in ultimatums. My wife and I agreed on that early on during dating. If she gives me an ultimatum I will take the opposite of her choice.

Good luck and at least marriage counseling if you think you might want to keep aforementioned 'wife'.

And fella, I have to say, you chose poorly, if you married such a shallow human being, but then, the idea that you are even contemplating getting rid of your dog speaks rather ill of you to begin with. A good dog will love you till it's dying breath, and ask only that of you, to be ALLOWED to love you... I'm sorry that I'm not sugarcoating it for you, but what will she demand next? Your guns?
