Ok, so my boyfriend of the last three years and I are parting ways (different directions and all that). Its not the most amicable split, to be honest. I started it when I moved back to nyc and he stayed in dc. It wasn't just the move, but it was exacerbated by it.
Now we're at the point of splitting things, and things are getting uglier.
The thing I have questions about -- he wants to keep both dogs because he doesn't feel like they should be split and I left the relationship (therefore losing all rights to the dogs or anything else he wants to keep).
Initially we each got a dog - so there was 'his' dog and 'my' dog. Now he says 'our' dogs, that I'm a selfish bunghole for wanting to split them, that it will traumatize them, and that I just keep on taking.
Advice? Do I pursue getting my dog back? Should I just call him a loss and get another dog? Will this truly traumatize the dogs to seperate them?
