why do men feel jealous over pets?

My hubby thinks I love my chihuahua more than him, and give him more attention! We fight almost daily over this, and he's mean to the dog...not physically, but he intimidates him constantly. I'm furious over it, and don't understand why he acts so childish! I think it's his issue...not mine!

  • Because you give the dog unconditional love that men just don't understand. Not that you don't love your husband but it is an emotional threat to him.

  • Maybe he just doesn't like small dogs? All of my neighbors have dogs... my DH HATES the yappy terrier to our left, but LOVES the bigger dog to our right.

  • It might be that inadverdently you are giving more to the dog then to him. I watched someone close to me go through the same thing till they broke up... She was more worried about her dogs that her relationship took a backseat. she'd spend a hundred dollars on things for the dogs but then tell her BF sorry but I can't afford our going out plans tonight.
