I don’t have any experince with this. But I just want to say that I am so excited for you to get your lil fur baby back! I am sure the new dog & your old dog will have to adjust to everything. & In time they will & all three should be happy fur brothers!

Dogs are usually really good about just having another dog thrown into the mix πŸ™‚  My FI’s parents’ took in a dog after my FI’s grandma passed away and she fit into the mix of two dogs just nicely!  That’s exciting to have your dog back!

Be glad that you are getting him back.  It was written into my divorce papers that I would get the dog should exDuH ever need to rehome him.  Unfortunately the bastard didn’tt feel that court orders applied to him and gave the dog away to someone else.  Because he was the one who signed the adoption agreement (even though my name was on it), the ASPCA sided with him, ignored the court papers, and wrote a new adoption agreement with the new owner.  My dog is somewhere on the other side of the country now and I have no way to get him back.

When I divorced in 2001 we each took a dog.  For two years we had monthly play dates so they could see each (and obviously the ex and I shared the time as well) We would dog sit for each other as well.  Then while I was on a trip Mr. Jazz got sick.  Instead of dealing with it he asked me to cut my trip short and can come back to pull the plug.  Mountain Man was awesome- drove back  10 hours with no comment, held my hand, wiped my tears.  Two things came out of it- deeper love for MM and the definate thought- there’s a reason you are my ex…. 

One note though- while I held up for the decision, and the lethal injection when they brought me paperwork that had the name of my ex- new wife- instead of MINE – I totally lost it- went hysterical and actually said “that b** was not his doggie Mom I am, Get her name off that paperwork.”  I knew I was over-reacting, and it was a total transference of emotion and I could not, simply could not stop myself. That was a reaction I was no way prepared for.

I haven’t had any experience with this, but I’m SO happy for you to be having your pups reunited! My Fiance and I adore dogs and sometimes joke about having a house full of them instead of children!

I don’t have any experience with this, my dog was mine before I met my Fiance and she will be with me no matter what happens.  Yay for getting your other baby back!!  That is very exciting, what a Christmas gift!!

@retreadbride:  I don’t think you over reacted at all…you were very emotional and it came out in other ways.  I think of dogs like children, they only have one ‘Mama’ and if they don’t live with them it doesn’t make the new wife the new ‘Mama’ but I’m overly emotional anyway.  I would have absolutely done the same thing, and if I was the new wife I would understand your reaction.

Not exactly…but I’m in a similar situation that you were in. My ex and I had two dogs (no kids) but, fortunately for me, I got both dogs in the divorce! He’s a musician and is on a tour bus 3-5  days a week…so it makes no sense for him to have dogs. Also, he moved 4 hours away into an apartment. I kept the house and have a yard. Just wanted to say that I’m happy you got your dog back! How did the two react to seeing each other again?

Congrats and good luck on a smooth transition! How exciting!

I got the dog in when I broke up with my ex. I honestly probably would have stayed in that terrible relationship forever if I hadn’t been able to take her with me. How awful is that? But I didn’t trust him to take care of her the way I would.
