Default if you moved out of your current living situation who would keep the dogs?

I'm curious, especially for those of us in relationships, who gets the dogs and why?

Bandit would 100% come with me. He was mine before and he isn't a shared dog. David wouldn't want him anyways as they don't like each other. They just co exist. Arya on the other hand is ours. I'd have a feeling she'd be coming with me if my relationship was no more.

My brother was laughing today saying if we were to ever split he could see a huge custody battle happening... And not about the kids lol.

I've never done the whole "shared dogs" thing well. When it came to family OR partners.

Even within a household as children we never had family dogs, we had dogs that belonged to individuals who fed/walked them so the decision of who goes with whom was always simple.

We would sometimes help out with care and such (Hey can you let doggy out tonight? I'm running late) but never anything really substantial.

Abrams would come with me, and Cynder would stay with Michael. If he was deployed, I'd probably request to have her at those times, especially due to her health issues.

I have a feeling we'll always have our own dogs, never "shared" dogs. And that's just fine. I think I prefer it that way. We share the responsibilities of the dogs, but not the dogs themselves. Lol

Me. They're "our" dogs, but they're ultimately my dogs.

The 3 rabbits were acquired prior to the start of the relationship... so mine.

Both dogs we got "together" but basically I wanted a dog and BF just agreed. He does nothing with them and until recently when I was away for a week has never cared for them except to put them outside on occasion. Also, neither dog listens to him or really pays him any mind. He wouldn't want them if we split up. He likes having them around but not the work that comes with them. So... mine.
