Rant, completely non pregnancy related
Well, not pregnancy related ...except that with my complete attitude, it's just making it worse.
DH's dog has been living with us for almost 7 months. He is actually MIL's dog, but there are people living with MIL who don't get along with the dog. DH LOVES to throw it in my face when one of my dogs mess up, but the fact of the matter is - that is few and far between. HIS dog, however, craps on the floor daily and gets in the trash and pees and growls when you reprimand him. Like, time out doesn't work for a dog. And this dog is a black lab and he's snapped at DH before, so when I get pissed at him.. I yell, he growls but I don't want to get bit so..I don't approach him.
ONE - if he growls at me when I have the baby, I'm going to go the freak off.
TWO - Every time (which is basically every day) I tell DH that his perfect dog did something wrong, he always shrugs and says what do you want me to do about it???? OMG - I'm the one with the awful stomach, yet I'm also the one cleaning up old trash and POOP.
THREE - his TOENAILS drive me NUTS. He paces back and forth between the living room and the kitchen. He lays on the couch, but only when you practically scream at him to get up there (actually, I tell him and he gets up there, when DH gets home, the dog completely turns a deaf ear to me so DH has to tell him and sometimes yell for him to get up there). Yes, I know toenails can be cut. But he IS NOT MY DOG. He eats my dog's dog food, growls and snaps at them, pees and poops all over the floor - I think MIL should have to take him to the groomer or whatever.
I felt so bad for him when he first got here, because I'm a complete dog lover. I mean ALL dogs, I'm all over them I LOVE dogs. But this one? He is seriously seriously getting on my last nerve.
The ONLY thing keeping me from telling DH that he has to go is that I want DH to make that decision himself....and I think he's close to it because he sees that the dog can get mean and he knows we can't have that with a baby around. My two dogs? Completely house trained (so was his, he's freakin TEN!!), hold their potty and they're nice. Always. If they do something bad and need to be punished, they take it - they don't growl and try to BITE ME.
OMG I'M SO MAD
ok, sorry - rant over
