Yes and no.
Yes in the sense that my dog has demands on my time since she is MY responsibility. So she precedes the boyfriend sometimes because I need to be home to exercise her, etc.

No in the sense that I love her and all, but she is a dog. She fills great many emotional needs, but is not a replacement for human companionship or affection. Add to the fact that our relationship is still alot like mother and "child", and not partners quite yet. I look forward to seeing the changing dynamic as she grows up and matures.
