Im happy my boyfriend has his four legged best friend but what is happening is I'm starting to get a little bit jealous on my end. Our date for Valentine's Day never happened, no flowers, no card, and our dating stopped all together. Our 4 month planned trip out of city was nearly cancelled as he recieved the puppy 2 weeks before it. As encouraging as I am, i feel a bit kicked up in the dust or the third wheel as you may say. Cuddling during movies as stopped - because the dog lays on him instead, and even all of our dates include the now 15 week old puppy. I am confused how to feel about this and need some sort of advice or opinions on how to behave properly instead of being jealous over a dog.
Is it normal to feel jealous over something so trival? Or should I be in the loonie bin for thinking a puppy stole my boyfriend lol.

Well, why don't u talk to him about how you feel. Understood, its a puppy dog and they require a lot of attention. But tell him how you feel ie. feeling a bit negelected. Hopefully he'll understand. And if he still chooses the dog over you, then you might want to say good bye.

Puppies need lots of care, and he's probably focused on that because it's so vulnerable. Offer to do things with the puppy maybe, but tell him you need love too. As the puppy becomes more independent things will change, like a baby growing.
Honestly, sounds like your boyfriend is neglecting your needs... It's great he sounds to be a caring and responsible pet owner, because puppies sure do need a lot of attention and loving. But maybe he has forgotten that girlfriends do too.
