Told my girlfriend, I hate having the dog sleep with us. She has had her dog for over 7years so naturally, they are attached to one another. I love her dog but there isn't much room in the bed and I dont believe animals belong in bed with u. She told me how girlfriends in the past have said something and she would get up and sleep on the couch with the dog. Last night while in bed, I put what I feel like is my security blanket over her and she said it smells of the dog. That's when I mentioned that well, I wash the sheets and blankets but if we keep letting the dog in the bed itll smell. I also mentioned how I dont really like the dog in bed, even when we are intimate, she is ok with the dog being there. She seemed understanding but then said, "just dont be surprised if I sometimes get up and lay wherever the dog is." I replied that it would make me upset bc a significant other belongs in bed with one another, not choosing to sleep with the dog over me. Mind you, the dog snores, isn't small, and She (my girlfriend) has severeeeeee sleep disorders.. talks in her sleep, shakes, wakes up often, has scratched me, pulled my hair, loud outburst... you name it. I can deal with a human having issues bc she can't help it however, I'm starting to feel like the dog situation is going to rip us apart. Last night she sent the dog on the couch, I know she will be resentful about it... but I dont even let my DAUGHTER sleep with me. Also even the dog sleeping on the couch is an issue for me. Not to sound snobby but I've worked hard for my things and they are expensive. I dont want a dog on them. I never thought an animal could tear two people apart but it saddens me to think I'm making her sad bc of me not welcoming her dog. I know people with animals view their pets as children and it would bother me if someone wasn't excepting to my daughter. Personally I dont put animals on the same level as people but their are some who do.

Also the dog passes gas sooooo much in bed... I'm so grossed out.

So today, I went to make my bed and there was poop on my blanket.. most likely from the dog stepping in it during a walk... I politely took my girlfriend and her dog home then broke up with her... the end.
