Today, while I was on a field trip with my son, my husband decided to get rid of our dog without asking anyone. Now I get to pick up the pieces of a broken heart, and he thinks he did nothing wrong. FML

I'd go find that dog and bring him home then kick the husband out for a night or two. What a douchebag.

My family did that to me before, I still carry around my dog's collar as a keychain.

What could his reasoning possibly be? he could have at least talked about it first.

I hate to jump there based on being FML, but getting rid of pets or hurting them are classic abuse moves, designed to hurt people. The husband doesn't sound like a nice person to me.

#94: True story. We don't have enough info about him to definitively say he's controlling and abusive (rather than just an insensitive jerk), but I'd be very interested to know if he "allows" to have friends or leave the house without him.

Honestly, I would say that getting rid of a member of the family with no prior consultation to at least his wife DOES make him abusive (though obviously not physically; perhaps emotionally). That's not something a normal person would do; it shows he has no regard for their feelings and doesn't care what they think, he'll just do what he wants anyway.

That's messed up :/ but I'm sure he had a reason talk it out

He should have 'talked it out' with the family before doing anything.

I feel bad for the son. I'd be devastated if I lost my dog.

Dogs are family. I would be heartbroken and devastated if something happened to my dog.

It's like trying to get rid of another (very furry) kid. And pets mean a lot to younger kids growing up, a best friend who never disagrees or hates you.

After a stunt like that, your husband should be sleeping in the dog house tonight.

Too late, he gave that away along with the pet.

OP can make him sleep outside.
