My dog does that to men he doesn't know too. He's very protective, but I would never take him on a date with me... that's just weird.
The difference between you and this woman is that you have boundaries for your dog and she doesn't. She thinks every outing must include Fido. In her mind she is not the inappropriate one for bringing her uninvited dog along on a date; HE is the one with the problem if he does not accept that Fido is her 'baby' and they are a package deal. Not worth it. Find a woman who doesn't think owning a pet is the same as having a baby.
I don't take my dogs that many places because they're both bigger dogs, but they are like my kids. I'd do anything I had to for them, spend any amount of money at the vet, etc. My world doesn't revolve around them but they're family and no man, including my husband would ever make me get rid of them.
Whyy do people say "putting animals before humans" like it is a bad thing? Baring any outstanding circumstances, a human can fend for themselves and thrive just fine without you. Dogs, cats, birds, etc., have been bred to rely on humans. Taking one is a commitment to that animal.
So say I had a kid from a previous relationship. That kid gets cancer and I go bankrupt trying to pay for chemo. Or say my new husband doesn't like my kid and says "he needs to go live with his dad". What the hell do you think someone would do? My husband an I understand that we'll never ask each other to rehome our dogs. I'd love nothing more than for his dog to be gone forever but I'm not going to ask him to get rid of his best friend that he's had for 15 years despite the fact that he bites me on a regular basis. Just like I expect him to put up with my dogs. Dogs don't live forever. Put up with them for however long they live and move on.
