5 months ago, my fiance wanted one of his grandmother's puppies. I cried and told him that I did not want the responsibility of having to care for a dog. I am not an animal lover, I cant stand animals unless they are extreemely(almost unnaturally) obediant. He talked me into it by promising he would take care of it. That he would take it with him to his job (he did work on a ranch) and he would take it out to go potty and clean up after it. He kept his promise for a month until we moved out of state. he now works in the automotive industry so he cant bring a dog with him. I am a SAHM and our puppy is 6 months old and a terror. She is a boxer/ queensland heeler mis and is a beautiful dog but I HATE HER!! She chews on everything, gets at our daughter's toys, had chewed on our windows, had ruined shoes, gets in the garbage and barks and climbs on the sofa and when she's in her kennel she just scratches and bites at it. I cant stand living with her. I have a 17 month old daughter and she loves Roxy and Roxy is good with her. We also have a cat now, which I was against and the cat is actually good. Roxy has to be an indoor dog since we live in an apartment. We cant afford to have a home with a yard for her to run around in and that sucks because she has a lot of energy.
I tried talking to my fiance about getting rid of her. He thinks I'm depressed and that I need to give it time...umm no, I just am frustrated with the dog. He actually told me that if I dont like her than I can leave, that If I'm going to make a big deal out of us having a dog and cant just grow up, I can leave. I was going to let the dog out today and pray that she just never comes back. I really cant believe he'd really want me out before the dog!! i just dont know what to think about his comment. Can I just let her go? I feel like a horrible person for it but really, I think my sanity is more important than my fiance being mad at me for like a month or 2 or however long it takes for him to just get over it and see that I'm a happier person because of it. Or am I really just over reacting? I'm really mad and confused about the whole thing.
