It Could Happen

Posted on | March 22, 2015 | Comments Off

Dear Short Answers:
My mother is moving into an assisted living facility and cannot take her two dogs with her.  She has asked me to take care of them but my husband refuses to let me do that. He’s not allergic to dogs or anything like that, he just doesn’t like pets.  I think that this is the least I can do for my mother who is going through enough drama in her life right now.  Can a wife overrule a husband in this situation?
Want to Do the Right Thing

Dear Right Thing:
Two dogs, especially to a non dog lover, seems like a lot — even to us. How about proposing to your husband that you “foster care” the dogs and look for good homes.  We can also hope that with some coaching from you, the pups will charm your husband into reconsidering.
