This past Saturday my husband went to a pet store and adopted a dog without talking to me first about it. I had worked night shift the night before and was sleeping. He took our two kids with him my 16 year old son and 12 year old daughter. The fact of the matter is my husband and I agreed that we would 1). wait until spring 2). buy an outside dog. 3.) buy a female dog. We had discussed a certain breed. He bought a small, ugly male dog, that is suppose to be kept indoors. This dog is the total opposite of what I wanted. Well I'm not really a dog person and I have never owned a dog. This is the third time my husband has brought home a dog that I was not a part of the process. I cried all last weekend and I'm totally obsessed about the situation but in a negative way. I feel like this represents that my husband doesn't listen to my desires, doesn't care about my wants and is a selfish self-centered person. So every time I look at this dog I feel resentment for my husband. I want to take the dog back, but my children are begging to keep it. So now I feel like I'm going to be the bad guy in this situation if we get give it up. Yet to keep it is going to make me unhappy and I'm at the house more than the rest of the family. What should I do?
