Bitching Bench

 Last Friday I was out drinking and playing cards when I ended up in the same house as my ex-wife who I haven't seen in a month or so. At some point we were engaging in small talk and I asked how her side of the family was and how the in-laws dog was. My ex informed me that the dog has cancer and is going to die soon. Now I love this dog to death, I've known her since she was a puppy, watched her all the time and trained her to do most of the cool tricks she knows (she can balance a ball on her nose like a seal Smiling). Needless to say, I was kind of blindsided on my night out having such terrible news thrown at me.

I called my ex the next morning and she offered to bring the dog to the park so I could see her one last time. I seriously considered it, but I asked her to get permission from her mom first because I was uncomfortable doing it behind her back. Today I got a call from my ex telling me that there is no way her mom will let me see the dog. WTF, I always knew she hated me from the day I started dating her daughter, but I didn't know that she hates me that much or is that spiteful. So much for that good old fashioned Catholic "love and forgiveness". Sometimes I hate people, maybe that is why I love dogs so much- they aren't people. /selfindulgentwhining

What a cool dog. Aren't you

What a cool dog. Aren't you tempted to still go behind her back somehow? Would you ex understand that and help you? I am a dog lover as well. That has to trump an ex-mother in law any day.

Having grown up in a Catholic household. I can personally attest that there is very little love and forgiveness among them.

I too, hate people and prefer dogs a large majority of the time.

I think I would figure out a way to see the dog behind her back as well.

It is obvious she is only keeping you from seeing the dog out of hateful spite and that is a shitty thing for her to do.

I would see the dog somehow and say fuck it if it means going behind her back.

I am very tempted, and my ex has already told me she is perfectly willing to help (she actually made the offer), but on the other hand I feel kind of wrong about it. I mean, she is her dog and I kind of feel like I should respect her wishes. I just thought that with an honest approach up front she would be decent enough to let me see the dog. I know if someone was doing something with my dog behind my back I would be pissed off, but then again, I would never be dick enough to prevent someone from seeing my dog in such a situation.

There are simply some things

There are simply some things that trancend in life and dealing with death, be it of a loved one or pet, is always hard.

I watched my last cat die on my bed in front of me. I also had to put to sleep my mom's lab who was suffering autheritus. That fucking tore me up. She was the only dog I ever got along with and loved. It always fucking tears you up man, I wish you all the best in dealing with this. Stay strong man.
