SHe wants another Dog. Another Shetland Sheepdog. I have a Collie, Sheltie, and a Russian Wolfhound (Borzoi). She saw a few 4 year old Sheltie in the paper and I thought she was joking. Last night she called the people and said we would be over there 10cst to look the dog over. I am kinda upset and I told her way. She is now mad at me because she says this dog needs a home. She tried to get another Collie a month ago as well a 10 yr old one. I probally would not have a problem with that.

My problem is she is say she now says I get whatever I want why can't her. I get inanitamte objects nod animals that might need to be feed, loved, and cared for. I think she in that mothering stage but she told me she does not want to have kids until she is done with her Masters Degree. I am in the Military so Animals are a concern. Eventhough I have a big backyard right now does not mean I will always have a big backyard.

You have your best argument right there---the other argument---lots of dogs in the house is a not so good for babies--is she planning on getting rid of some of the dogs when a baby comes?

She'll see your point. Shes just acting like a Kid who wants a toy and their mother said no--she'll get over it.

Actually pets. Especially dogs imo can be good for babies and young children. It builds up their immune system. Our children ages 4 & 6 have had 2 dogs in the house since birth and are much healthier than the other children. Don't suffer from allergies and get sick like other kids in the neighborhood without dogs.

To the OP show her a picture of a Nova Scotia Duck Toller. Best dog ever.

She's got a very common mental illness, comes with the vagina. Welcome to the reality of marriage.

What she needs to be looking it as is another responsiblity--that was what i meant before as alot of dogs equals not good for babies or the dogs. If you have a child you will be devoting all your time to it--whos going to devote the same ammount of time to the 4 responsibilites running around the house who have had your undivided attention prior to baby. Whos going to monitor all the reponsibilites from chewing up brand new baby toys, and well as being under foot while --carrying, changing and dealing with baby day to day things. Yes having dander in house makes for s strong immune system--but one needs to realize--alot of dogs have a hard time being "replaced" with a new infant. And lets not forget that Dogs live on an average of 8-10 years--so even though shes not done with her masters yet---they are going to be around well after she completes her masters.

What's your paygrade in the military?

If you're a junior enlisted type then pets or kids are not a good idea.

She REALLY wants kids but is too selfish to take the timeout from her life to have them. Since she feels terribly guilty about this she has to try and do Something.

Until the two of you decide to make the sacrifices necessary to have children she will be unhappy.

JMHO, YMMV

Hmm...YOU have those, but what does she have? Sounds like she may have point there if that is how you view the animals.

Sounds like she's Pulling an ARFCOM Maneuver.

"Well Those are your guns so Now I need another..."

It works every time.

Son, I tell you what. Let her have the Sheltie and remind her to clean up the Sheltie's poop at all times. If she refuses to clean up the Sheltie's poop after wanting another dog, then toss that Sheltie poop at her.

Later, she'll realize she shouldn't have pestered you into getting her another dog in the first place.
