I've always had issues in the past with my SO's not accepting the time and commitment I gave to my dogs and horses, one even went so far as to tell me to sell my mare , whom I raised from birth , or we would not be able to be together, well I told him to not let the door hit him in the behind as he left. I feel any person who asks you to give up one of the things that makes you happiest in life is simply no one I care to be with.

I currently have a wonderful man who loves animals as much as me, he trained bird dogs in the past and shoes my horses, does it get more perfect than that? I get the biggest smile when I come home from work to find him napping on the couch with my 2 cats curled on his chest. �� It took a long time to find him but the wait was worth it!!!

No, some cultures value dogs more.

I've done things that I wouldn't post on this forum because i'd get jumped on. But from what I see around me irl I'm not the only one with an unhealthy obsession

Lol, I have actually ditched a date for my dog before. It was our third date, I had made a homemade breakfast that morning when he came over, and I was ready to introduce my dog to him and do something with all three of us like go hiking. When I asked him about it, he said "I don't really want to go if we have to bring the dog." And then I walked out, went hiking with my dog and never called him again.

Must be a messed up culture....

However, I do value my dog over many a human....but never my SO.

The American culture that was. Russians have their dogs living outside for the most part and not treated like people.

Americans humanize their dogs. I've lived here long enough I guess.

Good for you that you never did.

I've had all the men I wanted to have. The older you get the less people you want to have around you. At least that's my case.

Is this like that silly game we use to play as kids..

"If you had to pick three people to save out of your burning house, between your brother, your sister, your mom or dad. Who would you choose?"
(I always said whoever i can get to first) lol Makes sense right? I guess now i would say, i would try and save all of them.

lol

I think dogs bring a different type of relationship than another human- so they cant be compared really.

If my SO said, its either him or the dog. I would pick my dog, because if he knew anything about me, he would know how much the dog means to me, and wouldn't ask me to get rid of it. Respect, trust, love and being open are all important in a relationship. And by asking me to get rid of the dog would be getting rid of two of those important parts of a healthy relationship!

Yes, Americans are crazy about their dogs....no doubt. But it could be argued that even us dog-crazy Americans do not relegate our SOs to a diminished status compared to the dog. I'm sure it does exist but it would be more the exception rather than the rule.

I do remember recently pulling up to a car at a stoplight and seeing a dog in the front passenger seat while the SO was in the backseat....it did make me chuckle.....as I didn't get the sense that the SO was being chauffeured about town.
