Fine... My wife liked dogs, ... TV, Solitaire, movies, racy novels, better than me. One might infer that I am a total bore. Clearly my wife thought so. So.... today, she continues to enjoy these things and I... I am no longer there. I now have a lady who likes me... and we can sped 5 days on a little sailboat together... straight.... no breaks... well... short breaks when we go on dock and she uses the ladies room.... I don't go in there with her. And after that she still can happily spend the next day with me....and it's still not too much.
SO.... let him have the dogs.... you go do the things you love to do, and you will meet people that love to do the same (that's how I met Milady) and you will be happier.
