I’ve had an ex play this game before. He actually tried to demand 2 of my cats back and made mild threats that he would just come get them whether I liked it or not. My cats are my life. My LIFE. They are the reason I made it through his absolutely horrible treatment of me for so long. I would have given up on life if I didn’t have them to take care of. Your best bet is to absolutely not respond. He’s just trying to weasel his way back in. No contact is the best thing you can do for your health. Keep it that way. Block his number in fact. If he escalates to any type of threat, tell him you are taking it as such and any further contact will be reported to the police. Then block him. These types of people always try to drag you down when you are making real progress.

Thank you ladies so much. I was feeling the guilt of not wanting to seem spiteful/petty by not letting him see my dog, but I didn’t respond and I won’t. Thank you for giving me perspective!

I have not read your prior posts, but, if he is as PPs are saying, a narcissist, he doesn’t believe in having exs; only harems.
He knows exactly where your soft spot is and how to put pressure on it.
No good for your dog could possibly come out of this. Suppose he takes the poor dog hostage as a way to manipulate you? You think that’s not been done before?
Don’t voluntarily give him access to your blindside.
You’ve been doing great. Stay strong. Ignore, block, move on.
