OK I love dogs...But they are not kids. So... My boyfriend, when we first started dating, made his ex sound like a beast. He travels for work so I asked who takes care of the dogs when he works and he said his mom does. We went out for a year and things were GREAT. Then I moved in with him 3000 miles away from my family and friends because the long distance was getting old. When I moved there in OUR house...Mind you a brand new place... I found pictures of her, cards he kept for the last 4 years, and he even called me her name...Ugh. I found out they went to dinner while I was living in my home town and he said it was just because he picked up the dogs and was trying to be nice...Um how about thinking of being nice to me? Anyway, they meet up in various places and exchange one of the two dogs that they have so they can both see them. He usually does this when I am at work. One time she picked them up from our parking lot and he combed his hair and brushed his teeth before he went downstairs. It made me want to cry that he cared what he looked like after he sat looking the way he did with me all day. Am I simply being to weird about this or is he still not over her? They dated for 8 years and have been broken up for four years but in the past four years went on vacations together and he even lived with her...I need to know if I should let it go or if he's simply not over her, even though he says he is.

There's nothing wrong with him having joint custody of some dogs with his ex. However, he needs to be respectful of you and your feelings, by including you in the interaction. If I were in his position, I'd feel an obligation to invite you along with me, anytime I was planning on spending any time (no matter how insignficant) with my ex. Love ALWAYS protects.0
