I feel like if u make that committment to take on a pet....u take that shit full on and u don't just dispose of your pet at the request of a bf.
Also I think it would be extremely dickish to make me pick between a pet or him? Gladly choose the pet in that case cuz i'd realize whatta fucking dick he is.
When I first moved to san diego I remember I was kinda dating/seeing this guy who was in the navy and had just been discharged and he had 2 dogs. 2 very high maintenance dogs and when I first went over his place it was ALL ABOUT his dogs. Walking them, feeding them, playing with them, sitting with them, etc. His dogs seemed kinda needy and douchey at first....
Anyway, I got to help him walk his dogs and really enjoyed his pets after that. and i realized how cute it was that be fully cared for these little creatures and it made me think how cute he was.. He had them very well-trained and seemed to provide a good home for them. I judged him on how well his pets were treated. Too bad he moved back to Virginia
