"Husband, YOU wasted money. You KNEW the multiple reasons I didn't want a german shepherd, you knew I was willing to compromise on something smaller, and you freely decided to lie to me about your plans for a dog and go get one anyway. I had no part in the decision to spend money on the german shepherd--and considering how much a big dog eats, and considering the common health problems german shepherds have, I have frankly probably SAVED us money by taking him to a rescue. You have absolutely no right to be mad at me when you're the one who tried to go behind my back and make a unilateral decision you knew I was not okay with. YOU screwed up, YOU lost your chance to ease into getting a dog, and the only thing going in our doghouse at the moment is YOU." NTA.
