I want a dog, husband doesn't

We lost our dog in October at 13+ years, I agreed to wait a little while before getting another dog, now hubs has decided he doesn't want a dog. I work at vet clinic and our animals are well cared for. I'm frustrated bc I feel like I have to wait until some time hubs decides it's okay to get a dog, he's speaking in years not months. Would you wait for hubs to goes the okay?

Yes, maybe he is still upset about your dog's passing. He is just not ready yet.

I would wait a while and bring the subject up again after a little time has past.

Maybe he's just not where you are yet so his heart isn't ready to move on so he can love a new dog.  What about asking him to have lunch with you at the vet clinic and introduce him to some loving dogs that are there.  Sometimes people need a small push to become ready again.  He'll come around eventually. Healing hugs to you!

Maybe just ask him to look at the shelter with you.  A new baby will never replace the old one but hearts can be healed with lots of hugs and kisses from a new baby!!  There are so many animals out there that need homes!!! I hope he changes his mind.

I told my hubby that I wouldnt marry him unless I could have a dog but made the compromise so far that the dog would be outside to sleep.

I don't know if I'd wait. I'd say it depends on how badly you want to get another dog.
