The way that my wife is constantly spoiling our dog drives me absolutely crazy.
She is really going overboard with the dog and I don’t really know what to do about it.
It’s like she is acting like this dog is our child or something. I think the fact of the matter is that she is sad now that we are empty nesters and we don’t have any kids left in the house. She’s taking all of her love and affection and pouring it onto this dog instead. I would not normally mind this, but the way that she’s going overboard it’s really starting to make me worry. Last summer, she had a contractor come out and build a huge dog house out in the backyard for the dog. This year, she is taking it a step further and she is having an HVAC contractor come out and install a little heating system for the dog and the dog house. She says that she’s worried about him being out there whenever we aren’t home and she’s afraid that he’s going to get too cold. The dog doesn’t even go out in the yard when we aren’t home most of the time. Not only that, but she’s also going to have the HVAC contractor put in an air conditioning system out there at the same time that he’s installing the little heating system. I think that this is completely overboard. First of all, the dog barely even goes out of the house. Secondly, dogs just don’t need the same things that we do. My wife just doesn’t seem to understand that though.
