My girlfriend and I recently broke up after dating for five years. She took our dog Meatloaf. She never liked the dog. The only reason she took him is to 'sock it to me.' I really became attached to Meatloaf and want him back. I've tried to talk to her about it, but she said if I want him it's going to cost me $500. How should I handle this? Should I give her 500 bucks or should I stick it to her and get a new puppy?
Steve says he probably paid for the dog in the first place so he would have to pay for something he already paid for. Slacker and Steve said if he gets a new puppy he will never love the puppy as much as Meatloaf, and the new puppy becomes the pone.
If he really wants the dog he should get it back but I don’t think he should give her money for it. I think she is keeping it more because she is not ready to let him go. I like what one listener said that if the dog is under his name he can report it stolen. I am super close to my dog so I can understand that he would want it back, especially when she doesn’t even really like it. I think she just needs to grow up and give the dog back. What do you think he should do?
