  • As long as your dog gives him no reason to act the way he does towards her, he needs to respect your wishes. I bet if it were a 'manly dog', Lab, German Shepherd, Bulldog etc., he'd be acting differently. Men can be pretty condescending about small dogs... bugs the crap out of me.

  • I would let him know that you wont allow him to abuse or frighten your dog, that it is inappropriate and that you wont tolerate it. He may not like the dog personally , but that is no reason for him to treat an animal like crap.

  • Hmm i dont no what to tell you... My hubby says he hates and we even get into fights about it. Then when the night come she is curled up on his feet or laying up against him. Everday when he comes home from work she is at the door waiting to get him loves. I dont understand how she can be such a daddy's girl even though he said he cant stand her.

  • See that's the thing my husband doesn't like it at all even if she tries to curl up besides him he will tell her to get the hell away and it makes me very upset that he treats her that way. he's nothing like this with my other 2 chi's just with this one:/ thanks for your responses ladies!
