My wife's life now revolves around our new dog and I'm getting left out

DEAR DEIDRE: MY wife has always wanted a dog and since getting one, my nose has been put out of joint.

I’ve never been a fan of them but agreed to it for her.

She chose a Dachshund. But now it seems to be the first consideration in any plans.

We only go to dog-friendly pubs, walk on dog-friendly beaches and it is even allowed to sleep in our bedroom at night.

I’m 55 and my wife is 54. I can’t ever get away from it. Then there is the mess!

It’s a year-and-a-half old and is still using our carpet as a toilet.

DEIDRE SAYS: You did agree to having a dog, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that your wife always goes for the “dog-friendly” options.

But it is also not unreasonable to ask to make your bedroom a dog-free zone.

You can definitely train your pet to stop going to the loo indoors.
