Wife and son wanted a dog; I don't.

I didn't want this dog in the first place. My wife wanted one and my son, who is a good kid, wanted one. He deserves one. However, I don't want it. We've had it two days and I'm ready to leave....pack my bags and leave. The dog isn't a bad dog but I just didn't want it. I have sinus trouble and I feel like we have an infant now. I'm constantly stressed about the dog barking loudly, getting into things, or tearing up something.

My wife manipulated me into getting this dog. My son wanted one but was fine without it. She kept pushing, "he needs a dog...he deserves a dog." "He'd be so good with the dog." Now we have it and I am stuck! I was looking forward to spontaneity, road trips, day trips....doing what we wanted as my son is now almost 16 but now we can't. Now we have this freaking dog. I want to get rid of it....take it to a family where everyone wants it. My wife KNEW I didn't want it but told my son about the idea of getting one and they started actively looking. I don't know what to do now as now we have a 15 year commitment. Damn it!!!!!!!!

  • I feel your pain. I’ve had dogs for over 20 Years. Parents wouldn’t let me have one Growing up, so the first thing I did when I moved out was get a dog. Well 3 dogs later I was ready to be pet free for a while. Guess what my wife got herself for Father’s Day? You got it, another f****** dog and then decided to rescue another one while my mom was on her death bed! Thank god for rub and tugs!
