He told me to get rid of the puppy

So, this morning my dh told me to get rid of the puppy we recently got. Why you ask? Because she was whining in her crate to be let out to go potty and he said that she sounded like a creepy person screaming. Then when I did let her out to go potty I let her wander around the house for a bit while I made my coffee and she kept following him. She was trying to get him to play with her and he said that she was a bad dog for following him. And some other crap about her not being trained.

Um, HELLO asshole, she's 8 weeks old. Of course she's not fully trained yet. It's going to take work to get her trained. She's acting like a puppy. He also got mad at me because I don't think her whining sounded like a creepy screaming person, I just thought it sounded like a puppy who needed to pee....

Yeah, I won't be getting rid of the pup. He's just being stupid. But this does mean that I need to figure out something at night/ in the early morning to keep her quiet.

haha, I like that idea. He gets annoyed at our 9 year old dog too, trying to say that she is a bad dog and not trained. But she's trained extremely well. He's just more of a cat person. He only wants to pay the dog attention on his terms and would prefer to just occasionally see the dog.

Good thing I'm the one home the majority of the time and he really doesn't have to do anything with the pets unless he wants to.

You need to give the puppy to a family who will love her, as yours will not. Your dh is a major part of your family and he hates dogs. He may be mean to her. You are part of a couple now and you can't just get a dog that your dh doesn't want. I agree he's being stupid, but you married him, that won't change.

You know, he doesn't always exhibit asshole behavior. But he has his moments. I have my moments of being a bit bitchy too. We all do.

I would rehome the puppy. Obviously he doesn't want it around. No doggy deserves to be unloved.

hahaha, we've been married for 8 years now. Getting the pup was a decision that we made together. He actually encouraged it. My family loves her very much thank you. Dh was just a bit pissed being woken up by the 'creepy screaming puppy'. He's not a morning person. But yeah, his statement ticked me off.

He doesn't hate dogs, just doesn't want to do any of the work that comes with them... and expects them to be 'perfectly trained' almost immediately. But I don't mind him not wanting to do the work, I'm more than willing.
