Both animal lovers or opposites? How do you come to a compromise?

Yup we both love animals. He was a complete cat person and I am a dog person. We had both for awhile now all we have are dogs.

We both want them. We both refuse to get them. We have 3 "animals" already that we will never get rid of. Lol! Once they've grown and move out, maybe.

He's more of a pet fan than I am. We compromised by not getting a pet, haha.

I'm no longer married but our interest in a dog was interesting!

While we were married, he kept saying we should get a dog.  I wanted a dog but I wanted to feel sure that we would be able to care for it because we were so busy.  As soon as he would say "yes" he would then say "no".  So, he was never really fully on-board.  Whenever he said "yes", he wanted to get a bigger dog.....a labrador.  I wanted a smaller dog because....1) we had a small house and 2) smaller poop.  Seriously.  hahaha

So, when we got divorced, he got his labrador dog as a puppy....and then it grew...and he still hasn't trained him.  His backyard is, apparently, all jacked up because of the dog so he didn't plan for it much.  He also got it during the school year instead of waiting for the summer when he is off in order to train him.

I ended up waiting until the summer because the kids have off and I would be taking some time off.  I got a small dog.....a rescue that was 5 years old....already trained and already calm.  haha

We're both animal lovers. We have 6 dogs, 5 cats, 4 horses, a pony, a donkey, 2 guinea pigs, a ferret, and a fish tank. We discuss house animals before we bring them home but as for the horses, he leaves that up to me.

Sounds like us. Our fourth kitty just found us. I think he wanted to keep her as bad as the kids. Guess who wakes me up every morning at 4am licking my face?!
