We got our dog about 3 years ago. After a few months, I knew it was a mistake. But, we got him from the pound, & he had been there for so long! No one wanted to adopt him. He's very annoying & very dumb, uncommonly so. He hates playing, hates our big back yard, is awful on hikes, & is an all-around dumb, whiney dog who just sucks up money & stinks up the house. I just don't like him, but I feel too guilty to get rid of him, so I figure I'll just put up with him until he's dead. Is this normal, or am I a big jerk?
