Well what did you decide? its either ME or the DOG? I would say you know what? (sorry) But i choose the dog! So how aboutit? What would you do/ choose? (think about it)!! Mike "Peace"!!
How about loving someone unconditionally and accepting their pet if you love them?
IMHO It's easy for non pet lovers to say they would give up their pet for someone else. But how about not putting the one you supposedly love in such a position. I've always had pets and am also allergic to pretty much all animals. There are remedies for allergies. Pets are part of the family and it's heartbreaking to expect someone else to give up a pet unless their is an extreme circumstance (such as giving up a vicious dog if you're expecting a baby). Don't you think that ultimatum will cause a wedge and resentment in the relationship? Ultimatums are not really the way to go, unless there is an exceptional reason.
If a pet is there at the beginning of the relationship, the pet should stay until it lives out it's life. It's not that much of a sacrifice if you love a person who owns a pet. Future pets would have to be negotiated or not.
I find it very telling of a person's personality if they need to have their partner "prove" their love by giving up their beloved pet. What else will they ask for in a relationship or marriage to prove their love. I actually would rethink a relationship with anyone who gave me that ultimatum for fear it would be a lifetime of giving in to them.
