We adopted my daughter, his step daughter a puppy. When it came to naming the dog, he wanted to share his thoughts....which we all agreed was a good idea. When Abby picked a name he did not like(Bear), he got upset and has been pouting for two days. He is very vocal about how much he does not like this name. He is very distant to everyone in the house, and just kinda sulks around.
I say this is very immature behavior. It is a childs dog and should not really matter what she named him.
Any thoughts? Am I being insensitive to his feelings?

Changing the subject a little...How old is your DD??I personally do not believe in getting a animal for a child. Because they do not end up feeding it,,,potty training it,,or training it at all. Or paying the vet bills when it gets sick..JMO...
Did you ask your DH why he didn't want to name the dog Bear???
