You've been around for 16 years. The puppy is new. It has nothing to do with how much she loves you. Try this. First of all, dont accuse her of loving the puppy more. I realize you're trying to get her to see that you want to spend more time with her, but people arent too fond of being attacked. Ask her to go do something. Tell her you miss being with her. See how that goes. Remember, no accusations. You can tell her that the amount of time she spends with the puppy makes you feel like she loves the puppy more. Note the difference here, you are explaining how you feel, not telling her what she is doing. People are more receptive when you explain how you feel about something instead of accusing them of being or doing something.
I don't think she really loves the puppy more - it's just the novelty. She's happy to have the puppy and wants to give it as much love as she can. In the end, you are her daughter and if she ever had to make the choice, she would choose you. I give my cats more attention than my kids and they know it's not because I love the cat more...it's an animal love thing. Besides, you're at a the age now where you don't need your mother as much, and the puppy does. Every mother needs to feel needed.
I do know a person who cares for her dog more than her children. She buys the dog special food and treats and has no food in the house for her teenage son. She takes her dog to the vet nonstop but refuses to take her son to the doctor when he is sick. She has even stated that she loves her dog more than her sons. Its a very sad situation and she is a horrid woman.
She treats it nice and sweet and everything. Your mom has done that you too all her life, come on it's a puppy, not onother kid.
I mean who doesen't treat dogs with all the love they have?
yh but i love my mum and she does really show me any attnchtion
she feeds me but the love wise she love puppy more
