My boyfriend brought home a puppy and I did not want a dog! I like dogs just not in my house, I am sort of OCD when it comes to my house being clean and having a puppy pee in it is REALLY stressing me out! There are lots of problems coming from this puppy. I am well aware of what it takes to care for an animal as I worked in a pet store and doggy day care for years. I know it isn't right to get an animal and give it away but I seriously don't think I can handle having a dog. We don't even have the money right now to take her to the vet to get fixed and stuff and I feel that having a pet without being able to afford proper vet care is cruel. If an emergency happened to her we wouldn't be able to afford to take her to the vet and that isn't right! I try telling him we don't need her and that I don't want her but he just gets angry. I don't know how to compromise with him on this. I have to care for her for 10 hours while he is at work and that's not fair! I am nice to her and even like to cuddle with her and I make sure she is taken care of the best of my ability, I just really can't handle the stress from it or the finances.

Crate train her, call a local human society for help for the "fixing", tell him he needs to take her to work with him b/c your not the dog sitter!!
