In life, we are faced with making tough decisions that we do not want to make on a regular basis. For this couple, though, the decision had boiled down to something rather simple. Would the man of the relationship choose his dog, or his partner?
When ultimatums are made, there is usually a point of no return – and for this couple, that was almost certainly the case. Having spoken about moving in together, his partner made it clear that she would only move in if the dog went – she HATED the dog, and couldn’t possibly live in the same house as it is.
Ultimatums are never a sign of a happy, healthy relationship and when one is issued, it’s usually crunch time. Molly the beautiful Beagle was the problem here, and one had to go – it was either the partner or the dog. While he knew his partner didn’t really like Molly, he never thought it was a major issue and was definitely something that could be overcome. Sadly, it did not seem to be the case.
Sadly, he went to Craigslist and listed beautiful Molly for someone to come and take, saying that “I have to rehome her.”
In the rest of the ad, he’s so clear about how awesome Molly is.
“She is a purebred from a wealthy area and I have had her for four years. She likes to play games. Not totally trained. Has long hair so she’s a little high maintenance, especially the nails, but she loves having them done.”
You can just tell that he hates having to do this, and does not seem to be too happy about making the choice. However, the ad concluded in the most wonderful way.
“So… anyone interested in my 30-year-old, selfish, wicked, gold-digging girlfriend? Come and get her! Me and my dog want her rehomed ASAP!”
It looks like the decision that he made was the right one after all. How could anyone hate a dog who looks so friendly, charming and adorable as little Molly? We won’t name names, but well done to the guy; looks like you and your partner were not ready for committing to each other yet, anyway.
Who would you choose – the dog or your partner?
