@Serey:  Can’t you tell him you did it while dusting or something?

@Serey:  Thats’ what i would do. I’d protect the fur baby and blame it on me.

I agree, I would blame it on myself…

I’d definitely be saying it was me.

I’d totally blame it on me, but it’s hard to hide my dogs damage (he’s a great Dane), so it wouldn’t be believable. 

The thing is, it’s just a thing, and I know it means a lot to him, but these things happen when you have dogs (and kids!)

I first thought ‘I would lie and say I did it’ but the truth is, your SO needs to be able to control his anger. I would be holding your dog, if you can, and tell him. So he doesn’t have some crazy knee jerk reaction and hurt the dog. If he freaks out you need to sit down and talk to him and he needs to realize that dogs are dogs, they don’t understand.

My husband flipped shit on our dog for eating our couch a couple of years back. My dog was so scared and hid under our truck. He didn’t hit him or anything, was just yelling and throwing things out of frustration. From that day forward my husband has been working on his anger. Freak out on people for being stupid, not animals.

@Serey:  If your going to live with animals, you have to deal with the fact that they break things, throw up, poop and pee on them, knock them over, break pieces off of them and wreak general havoc in a home, not because they’re trying to make you angry…but because they’re animals, and in spite of themselves, make mistakes, just like we do.

If I were you, I’d call him and let him know before he gets home…so he can blow his stack and calm down before he even gets there…because freaking out on an animal for an accident is so pointless, it scares them, creates stress and doesn’t fix the broken thing anyway.

If it’s that special, find an out of the way place for it, or deal with the fact that stuff is going to happen to it….either way, it’s ok.

What prompted your pup to jump on the table? Was he startled or something? That’s what I would blame it on.

@Nona99:  +1 Really good advice concerning pets and pet ownership.

Give your husband the advice I give my sister every time she freaks out when her dog breaks something, “Consider this training for being a parent.”

She is TTC and bought new white couches (rolls eyes)

@Nona99:  This. By the time he gets home and starts getting angry with the dog, the poor thing will have NO idea why he is being punished and will be very stressed/confused. 

Shit happens when you have dogs, cats, kids, clumsy friends/family. If your SO can’t handle that, then that’s a whole other issue.

I trust you are exxagerating when you say he will “kill” the dog. I’m surprised that you haven’t already been jumped on for that .

Lying would be silly. It happened. He will have to deal with it. Like a pp said, consider it prep for parenthood.
