I want your ladies opinions, do you think were over reacting?

I live in a house with my parents and my son. My older brother lived with us too until he recently moved out. We have a dog, whom I guess is technically my brothers, but he never took care of her, and was rarely home. She was basically OUR dog. Anyway, he told us he was taking the dog with him when he moved, but we were completely against it.. and after lots of arguing, we finally got him to agree to let the dog stay. Then one day when we were all working, he up and took her anyway. We are FURIOUS! And none of us want anything to do with my brother. Do you think were over reacting??

  • Yep, overreacting. It was HIS dog, not yours even though ya'll took care of it.

  • Did he bring the dog when he moved in? If so it's still his property. If the dog was already there than no he shouldn't have done that.

  • I would be angry too. and it's sad because if you are the one that took care of the dog this whole time then the dog is not going to be cared for with your brother. I don't think you are overreacting at all.

  • I understand your upset but it is his dog as you said. He has the right to take his dog.

  • I'd be peeved too, but really it was his dog and I think that saying you don't want anything to do with him over it is overreacting.
