Now I know

I agreed to get a dog in 2011 because my husband wanted one very badly, but now we're splitting up. Ozzie did make my husband very happy, but he didn't make me nearly as happy and mainly just added to my workload. I was okay with that while I believed that Ozzie was making Bob happier which would make our marriage happier. But now that our marriage is over, I'm tired of walking Ozzie, feeding him and having to come home to walk him and feed him. My patience with and fondness for this animal are declining again.

The past two years have not made me a dog person. Ozzie will stay with Bob and my personal dog experiment will end. Ozzie's cute and I'll probably miss him, but I didn't get the results I was looking for so I'm returning to a dog-free life, which is my natural state.
Ozzie, a 50-pound pit bull mix, who will stay with my husband.

I've been reading your blog for a few months. I'm happy to find someone I relate to. You're a very good writer. I just want to say, marriage is hard, but please don't give up on it easily.

Oh, Regina. I'm so sorry. Can I email you? I always meant to respond to your post about how I came across your blog, but I'd rather do it privately.
