Ridiculous...I know! But here's the thing...My boyfriend gives WAYY more attention to his dog than to me!! It's so weird. Is it a guy thing? Is it a dog lover thing? Or is it just weird??!!
He has this dog...just a little terrier-bichon mix that I find to look like a mutt and not very cute. He is un-trained, un-groomed, extremely hyper, and fed very unhealthy table scraps that my boyfriend refuses to listen to me on how to care for a dog...Basically, I'm trying to say that he doesn't take good care of the dog, yet spoils it like crazy...
Anyway, the way he talks to this dog drives me up the wall. Not only does he baby-talk the dog, he's constantly telling it things that he doesn't even tell me!! Like "you're so cute" "i love you" ...and it's just really starting to drive me crazy, lol. We'll be on the phone and he'll be like, "aw, you're so cute, I love you" and then I feel like an idiot when he says he was talking to the dog. Last night we were watching a movie and instead of laying beside me...he lays beside the dog!
I really think i might be jealous of this little tiny mutt and that's making me angry!! Why be jealous of an animal? Maybe it also stems from the fact that my boyfriend will be SO busy and he can't hang out yet I asked him what he did and he "took the dog for a walk" or he "played with the dog"
Now, he lives with his parents and his parents also take care of the dog and walk him, etc. etc.
Am I being ridiculous, or is it ridiculous that I feel like I come second to an animal??
..and for the record, my boyfriend pretty much is a loner and shy and has no friends, no siblings...maybe that is his attachment?? I have no idea...
