This Woman Refuses to Allow Her Ex-Husband to Take Dogs Back After He Kenneled Them for a Work Trip

A woman got really mad when her ex-husband put their dogs in kennels while she was on vacation and now she won’t let him see the dogs. He said it was an urgent situation, but she’s still furious. Here’s what she had to say.

The Broken Family Had Two Dogs

The woman and her ex-husband had been separated for five years and shared custody of their son, who was seven. The couple also had two dogs, who now live with the woman. One of them was bought eight years ago by the man as a birthday present for his wife. The other is a rescue dog that the ex-husband found while out on the run six years ago.

“He never liked dogs, and it took ten years of wearing him down before he allowed us to get one. He works long, unpredictable hours and sometimes travels for work, so a dog doesn’t fit his lifestyle,” the ex-wife explained.

They Had An Agreement

She said, “Over the last few years, he would sometimes take the dogs when he has our son and pick them up to take them hiking. We made a deal that I would allow him to take the dogs whenever he wanted as long as he took them when I needed him to.”

In June last year, the woman and her current partner took their children on a two-week vacation. In advance, the woman contacted her ex-husband to ask him if he could look after the dogs while they were away, and he said that he would.

Three weeks before the trip, however, he contacted the woman to say he would be unable to watch over the animals as he would be in a different city for work. In response, the woman told her ex-husband that he would need to find someone else to watch over the dogs.

He Said He’s Pay For Kenneling

He replied by explaining that they were her dogs and, as such, it was her business to make arrangements for them. After that, however, he said that he would pay for a kennel.

The woman did not want her dogs in a kennel, as they had never been before, and her rescue dog already struggled with anxiety.

The Woman Agreed

She then asked if he knew anybody that could watch the dogs for her, and he told her that he didn’t. After some back and forth between them, the woman found a good kennel that the dogs could stay in, despite her not wanting to. They would stay there for five days, and then her ex-husband would pick them up.

“While I was away, the kennel sent me updates on the dogs,” the ex-wife said. “As predicted, my rescue dog was very stressed and depressed. I then received an update from them the day after my ex was supposed to pick them up, saying he had extended their stay.”

He Thought It Was Better For The Dogs

The woman reached out to her ex, who blew her off by saying that they were fine and would be better off there than stuck in his house while he was at work. He eventually picked the dogs up on Friday, three days before the woman returned.

Since then, he has asked several times if he could take the dogs, and the woman has continuously refused. She feels that he should not get the dogs when he wants them, as he did not want them when it was an inconvenience to him.

They Argued

The woman’s ex came to her house unannounced recently to take the dogs hiking with him, and she refused. They got into an argument that ended with the woman telling him that he would not see the dogs again until the next time she needed him to.

Her Ex Things She’s Being Unfair

The ex-husband feels that the woman is being unfair, as she expects him to change his work schedule for the dogs. Also, he has bonded with the dogs and feels he has a right to see them.

Is She Wrong?

The woman asked if she was wrong for telling her ex he couldn’t see the dogs, as even her current partner felt she was being cruel.

People Responded

One user replied, “You are being unreasonable, cruel, and petty.”

Another said, “He abided by your agreement to care for the dogs when you needed him to, within reason.”
