She gives her boyfriend an ultimatum: “Either the dog goes, or I go. Her boyfriend’s response has the internet packed

In April 2021, a Reddit user by the name of u/sugar-soad asked the question: “People who had to choose between their pet or their partner, how did your ex react when you chose your pet? Many people have answered this question!

Here are some of the most relevant and amusing responses when given an ultimatum:

1. “He was gone 3 weeks after that. The cat lived 3 more wonderful years”

A boyfriend doubted his girlfriend’s abilities to take care of his elderly cat. He was pretty sure she should euthanize him, but she disagreed. He was frail and skinny, but based on his blood tests and visits to the vet, he was healthy and there was no reason to euthanize him.

Yet her partner kept commenting. “He even went so far as to stop by a vet to pick up cremation brochures so I could buy an urn. »

Her response to her comments was, “If you ever talk to me about euthanizing my cat again or insinuating that I’m not doing the right thing, you can pack your bags. »

He left three weeks later.

2. “I convinced my in-laws to let me bring her”

“I have an elderly rat (he’s four years old, which is quite an achievement for a rat), I’ve had him since I was a baby, I raised him with his brother who died two winters ago. When we moved in with my in-laws over the summer, they didn’t want me to bring my rat.

I immediately told my partner that I will live elsewhere for a while (we had been living together for almost three years at that time) because my rat is under my responsibility, he is very old and I want to live together. take care of it until the end. They were a little upset and blamed me for choosing the rat over them, but I explained to them that it is an animal that depends on us.

It worked, I convinced my in-laws to let me bring her. He is living his last days and I am happy to be here with him. He will be buried with his brother when the time comes. »

3. “He told me it was over. It suited me very well. »


A chihuahua, an outdoor dog? Never!

“I had a boyfriend that I had been dating for a few months and things were starting to get serious. One day, he said to me, “You know, if we ever move in together, your dog will have to stay outside. Dogs are not supposed to be inside. My dog ​​was a 3 kg chihuahua. I told him that if he wasn’t willing to change his mind, we wouldn’t go any further together.

He told me it was over. It suited me very well. After that, when I met my husband, he told me he didn’t like small dogs. He met my dog ​​and literally fell in love with it. Unfortunately, he passed away two years ago, but he had just turned 12. I hope the other guy found someone good for him. »

4. “Butters always makes quality cookies by my side”

Toxic relationships can often get the better of us. The best thing to do is remember who you are and what you want in life. For this person, it was her cat, Butters.

“I had an incredibly toxic boyfriend who at one point gave me a cat from a rescue center for my birthday. The cat REALLY didn’t like him, she wasn’t aggressive, she was just temperamental and didn’t want to be with him. We had argued earlier in the day about something unrelated and he decided to start complaining about the pussy and started telling me we should get rid of her, she was mean JUST because she was temperamental (she’s from a rescue center!! and she’s very affectionate if you let her come to you when she feels safe). “He started threatening to leave her at the Humane Society or get rid of her while I was gone so I couldn’t stop him. I told him to get out of my house and immediately broke up with him. Butters always makes quality cookies by my side and loves to nap with me 🙂”

5. “He wanted a dog instead. »


“He wanted me to part with my cat because he wanted a dog instead. We didn’t live together and I’m allergic to dogs. It didn’t matter. He absolutely wanted one, so he demanded that I place my cat. I gave him instead. The look on his face, when I took him to his mother, was quite priceless. »

6. “I had been raising tarantulas for several years, it was my job. »

This person raised tarantulas and this was his job. Although she had always been clear that there were spiders in her home, it had never been a deciding factor in her relationship.

“I dated this guy for a few months, but we always saw each other outside or at his house. I hadn’t really thought about it. Around the fourth month, he started to get angry and one day he immediately asked me how long it would take to “sell a few spiders”.

When her partner returned, he was upset that there were still spiders in her house. His response was, “Did you really think I was going to give up my job for you?” »

7. “She’s my soulmate and I could die for her.” »


“My ex-husband was terribly abusive and liked to destroy everything I owned in order to punish and control me. I put up with anything and everything for over two years because “I loved it”. Last time I saw him he insulted/hit my dog. I instantly took my car and my dog ​​and drove off. I immediately filed for divorce. I haven’t seen him since. »

8. “He did everything to hide his allergy to cats. »

This man hid from his girlfriend that he was very allergic to cats so that she ended up choosing him and separating from her cat.

“I briefly dated a guy who pretended not to be severely allergic to cats. He first came doped on Benadryl and I confronted him about it, and he tearfully told me that he hoped to keep his allergy a secret long enough for me to fall in love with him and choose him. rather than my cat. »

9. “My girlfriend doesn’t like my beagle Molly. SO I have to find him a new family. »

Moving in with his girlfriend, a young man faced a serious problem. His girlfriend absolutely wanted him to separate from his beagle, so much so that she gave him an ultimatum. It was her, or the beagle. After thinking about it for a bit, he took to Craigslist under the username Roanoke to make an announcement that surprised a lot of people.

“My girlfriend doesn’t like my beagle Molly, so I have to relocate her. He’s a purebred from a good family, and I’ve had him for four years. She likes to play a lot. She is not fully educated.

She has long hair so it takes a bit of maintenance, she also wears long nails, but she loves having them done. Stays up all night yelping, but sleeps while I work. Eat only the best, most expensive food. ”

He then ended his announcement with the following words: “So…anyone interested in my selfish, mean, gold-digging 30-year-old girlfriend? Come get it! My dog ​​and I want her to be rehomed as soon as possible! “.
