Default Jealous

I admit this sounds so petty and silly but.........

I am a dog-lover. The dogs we have had in our family were here because of ME! Granted hubby and the kids love the dog(s) but it is ME who is the ultimate dog-lover. They are probably, if they had to choose, more like cat people. I also like cats but would choose a dog 100 times over a cat.

Our last dog, Bella, was my heart-dog. We were of one mind, I swear. So when I got Dorothy I was heartbroken and in need of healing. I love Dorothy so much. So, having said all that.........I think Dorothy likes my hubby more than me. And he REALLY likes her, too. I mean, ya, I'm glad Dorothy has many people to love her, but I'm just so accustomed to being THE person to any dog we have ever had. I've always been the one any of our dogs loved the most.

It makes me jealous. There, I said it. And, yes, it's petty!

I keep joking and telling hubby to "get your own dog" but now I'm actually thinking about getting another Chi because I want a dog who loves ME the most!

Has anyone else ever experienced this?

I haven't had this happen personally, all four of ours that we have had have absolutely been MY dogs - they adore my husband of course, but it's very clear who priority #1 is. But, I'm pretty sure I would be crushed if we ever got one in the future who preferred my husband over me. So I think the jealously thing is completely normal. I know my husband feels the same way about them loving me more...he gets jealous now and then.

No advice here but I can relate. With both of ours I worried that they might bond more with hubby. Mickey is a family dog, encompassing most of our friends and relatives into his "family" and Piper has eyes only for me. But I just know our next dog will end up being 'his' and I know I wouldn't be happy with that. All the while I'm so happy that hubby loves both dogs so much. Yeah, I feel silly about it, but it's very real.

Be prepared to get more than just another chi. We got Domino first and she is definitely SOs chi. So I found Gino a year later... he belongs soley to my 12yo dd. Completely they are bffs for sure. I was cautious when getting Pixel but she is with out a doubt my baby. Good thing ky 15yo dd loves her tortoise lol

I would be and have been jealous of similar situations before.

I haven't experienced this. Although I think you should get a new puppy, Dorothy would benefit from it too

I can really relate to those feelings. I don't think their silly, they are real feelings. Like you, our dogs have always been "mine" so to speak though out the years. When we added Indy to our family and he chose my husband over me, even though I'm always the main care taker, I was very disappointed and also a little jealous too. The only solution for me was I had to add another to the family because part of me felt lost without having "my dog". Along came Carolina and now Carlee and it was the best decision for me. I just feel more complete when my "world" is surrounded by dogs.
