Dog

This.

Look closely at what your marriage would look like:

When he comes around, she pees on herself. She snaps at him if he tries to sit on the couch by me. He yells at her constantly. He bans her from chairs, couches and rooms. Sometimes I come home early, and he has locked her in the bathroom. When I open the door, she's in the corner just shivering.

Same kinda guy who would make the family dog ride cross-country in a crate strapped to a station wagon.

My instinct is to blame the guy too but if a dog snapped at me and pissed itself regularly I would probably try to sequester it in the bathroom too.

Yeah but it's not his dog. Not that I'm excusing him for constantly yelling at the dog (possibly an exaggeration) or locking it in the bathroom, but it sounds like her dog could use some training.

Wow. It's so obviously "Dog" that I can't believe there's even a question.

True, but you figure that (1) this guy's been around long enough that he should be making progress towards training the dog and (2) treating someone else's dog poorly is also pretty telling about this guy.

If I came home to this? That boyfriend would have been out on the curb with the garbage so fast his ass would have left sparks down the length of the driveway -- especially considering that the dog in question seems fine with other men.

I'll agree that he shouldn't be treating the dog poorly, though I still take her story with a grain of salt since it's only one side of it. But I really think it's her responsibility to train the dog, not his. She's had the dog for 8 years. If she wants to have a boyfriend and a dog, she's probably going to want to make sure the dog doesn't snap at or pee on this boyfriend or any future ones.

Some dogs are very good at judging human character.

CSB: When I was a kid, my family had a little mutt named Mitzi. She was a very friendly dog who loved nearly everyone who came to the house, except for one of my dad's buddies, who I'll call Stan. Mitzi couldn't stand Stan. She barked like crazy whenever he came to visit, and growled at him whenever he tried to pet her. She had no problem with Stan's wife, though.

A few years after our little mutt crossed the Rainbow Bridge, Stan and his wife got divorced. It turned out that he was an abusive bastard who had been beating her for years.

/still misses that little mutt. She was a good dog.

Is the dog being abused by him because it bites and pees, or does it bite and pee because he's abusing it?

I just mean, he should be playing with the dog, walking it, feeding it, etc., not just locking it in the bathroom.

Yet he chose a relationship with a woman and her dog.

Gross.

As a lifelong dog owner, I can tell you that my dogs have had 100% accurate asshole radar over the years. If my dogs don't like you, I don't like you, or at least hold you in a suspect state.

Another vote for the the one who can sense asshole in a person. (You'd figure as many as they sniff, they'd know one when they saw one.)

Yeah...The Mrs. and I had a Chocolate Lab (Broadway) a few years back that was the goofiest, smiliest dog ever (Lab, redundant, I know). A dude I went through basic training with years earlier came through town and stopped by for a weekend visit. Supposed to be all good. Broadway got his hackles up, growled a lot and wouldn't let this guy anywhere near the Mrs. or our boy. He NEVER acted this way. It was sorta scary how big my big Lab got. Serious big-boy growl and everything. I trusted his instincts (my asshole radar was apparently inop at the time) and after the first night suggested we cut the visit short. I made up some excuse for it. Turned out the dude was into kids and other assorted bad things. Your dog knows. They smell it, recognize it or whatever. Unless your baby has abuse/rescue issues or something causing them to just not like people, pay attention and take heed. They know. Trust them.

Dog, dipshiat. And how is that even a question? My boyfriend is a complete asshole, should I give up my dog for him?
 
2012-07-31 04:30:21 PM  
If you're an asshole to animals, then more than likely you'll be an asshole to your significant other and kids.

He's not smart enough to make friends with the dog? Get rid of him: just don't send him to the pound.

I had a dog that loved almost everyone with the exception of my cousins husband. He seemed like a nice guy to everyone and it was so puzzling how the dog acted like she hated him? Several years later we all found out that the guy was a total arsehole, smooth talkin, cheating, lying con man. We all laughed that the dog had him figured out the first time she met him! Always trust the dogs instinct! Dump the loser asap!
 
2012-07-31 04:42:09 PM  
Sounds like the dude needs a beating.

Keep the dog.

Dog.

If I found out my boyfriend had been locking my dog in the bathroom, his abusive ass would have been kicked to the curb the first time it happened.
 
2012-07-31 04:45:32 PM  
The dog.
 
2012-07-31 04:46:29 PM  
Dump the boyfriend and buy a jar of peanut butter.
 
2012-07-31 04:47:17 PM  
The dog's reaction to the man seems to indicate he has mistreated her, particularly if she doesn't have a history of this behavior. Locking the dog in the bathroom is probably only the tip of the iceberg, who knows what else he's done to that poor thing.

I'd keep the dog.

This. I can't stand dogs. I just don't like them and I have trouble understanding why people want smelly, yappy, expensive, time-consuming animals in their homes.

And yes, I am an asshole.

And yet, whenever I go to "dog people's" homes, their dumb mutts nuzzle my hands and try to get me to play with them, which I refuse to do.

I consider myself a catch. If you saw my checking account balance and the inside of my boxer-briefs, I think you'd agree. That being said, I don't put up with much when it comes to relationships. I started dating this woman I met at speed dating a few months ago. We went out a few times, always meeting in public before going back to my place, so I didn't know much about her home life. After my experience, I can add one more question to my screening e-mail: Do you have any pets?

This lady had a 180 pound Rottweiler. Mind you, she was 100 pounds, well maybe not that fat but definitely small. The first time I walked into her apartment, the dog comes tearing at me, snarling, slobbering, teeth snapping. I kicked it in the face which bought me enough time to get back out the door. I didn't want to go back in, but the woman demanded that I apologized to the dog whom she said I startled. I went in and the big Goliath was sitting there growling at me. I don't take shiat from dogs so I kicked it in the face again, knocking it unconscious. The woman lost her shiat and started bawling so I screamed at her to shut up and raised my open hand, which seemed to calm her down.

Then the dog came to and was instantly in attack mode. It lunged at my throat and latched onto my chin. I started uppercutting it as hard as I could in the gut. That wasn't working, so I reached down, grabbed its balls, and squeezed them as hard as I could. The dog let go of my face just long enough for me to spin kick it out the sliding glass door. It tumbled over the balcony, fell into the parking lot where it was crushed by an arriving garbage truck.

I told the woman, who was bawling about the dog and didn't seem to care that my head was nearly torn off, that I didn't want to see her anymore. Suddenly I was this big monster. Well, life's too short for bull crap, so I bid her good day.

Nahh..this guy is the controlling nanny sort. Constantly over regulating the dog and blaming the dog for things that were clearly not the dog's fault. Little wonder the dog is constantly nervous. Truth be told, the guy isn't what he claims to be at all. She should dump him.

Dog.

Brought a date to my house years ago... right in that 4th or 5th date stage between "dating" and "girlfriend". Got into bed... my lab jumped up and curled up on the foot of the bed.

"I'm not sleeping with your dog. That's f-ing gross."

Took her about 20 minutes to finally realize I wasn't kidding when I told her she could either leave or go sleep on the couch.

The dog was here first... deal with it or GTFO

What a useless advice columnist.
The guy signed on to a relationship with a dog. Its part of the territory. Same thing as dating a person with kids. It comes with it. You can't decide down the line to only accept a part of that.
Girlfriend had a dog when we started dating. Never really liked dogs, but signed on nonetheless and learned to appreciate and like dogs.
 
2012-07-31 04:52:16 PM  
The dog needs to dump the chick for not kicking the b/f to the curb.
