DH doesn't like new puppy

And it's making me very sad.

To be clear, we have another dog, DH loves dogs in general. But he doesn't like the puppy.

She is very small, which he doesn't like, but he agreed to get her for ds, who dotes on her.

She dotes on me because I'm here all day, and I do indulge her. But DH has never before been prissy about dogs on sofas and stuff. When he catches her he looks at her with real dislike. Whereas I am all soppy about her.

She is six months now, and I am hoping he will come round. Anyone got any good stories of similar....?

Dog definately prefers me, and makes no bones about it!! He goes to DH until I emerge from where ever!! DH knows hes second best. Hes a grown man, he accepts it.

Do you think he's secretly jealous, then? He says she's small and ratty,many she's not allowed up on things when our other dogs have been?

Yes jealous would cover it, or hirt hes not tje favorite choice. Does he give her treats or take her out? Maybe jealous of your affection towards the dog, rather than him?

Get her to lie on him? And cuddle up?

He is deliberately distant with her, he takes the big dog for walks and not her, she is very affectionate and tries to climb on him, and stuff, but he shoves her down.

It's so unlike him. And it makes me not like him, cos the wee dog is so cute.

Anyone got a turnaround story to tell me to give me hope? She's six months old, btw.

Have you asked him why he behaves as he does?

Tell him to grow up?

Is he avoiding walking her in public because a little dog is not a good image for him?

tbh I'm not fussy on little rat dogs, but he agreed to getting one so as MsAdora says tell, him to grow up.
