Are you the only pet lover in your house?

My husband knew I loved animals and would always have pets before we got married. So now that we've been together for 10 yrs and have 2 dogs I don't get why he doesn't understand it. If we have pets, WE have pets. Everyone helps out with the care of them. He agreed to get both dogs before I got them, he even picked out our 1st dog himself. But when it comes to walks or baths he tells me.. You wanted a dog.. ggrrrrr!

  • Lol we call my son the Zoo Keeper. Brings home anything. But I end up taking care of them.

  • LOL, I have the opposite. We have 1 dog right now and DH keeps begging for another one, I love dogs, but right now is not the time. We have a 9 month old DD and I am pregnant again, I keep telling him when the kids are older we can get another dog, but adding another puppy right now would be like adding 2 extra babies, instead of just the one in my uterus!

  • LizzeeT- That equals them not really loving pets to me. If you truely loved something taking care of it is not a chore, just another way to show your love.

  • I think I take on that Mother role for the cats too however he's never been a cat man and I knew that, he loves them ( I think ) but he'd rather have dogs and thinks cats are gross lol!~
