Besides my incapability to fully grasp this (he has never experienced a lousy past experience with an animal), it helps make me concern his compassion (or absence thereof) for all points dwelling. Need to this be a red flag, worthy of reconsidering our engagement?

When I traveled by airplane with my youngsters, I normally planned in advance. I packed a lot of healthful treats, a several shock treats and game titles, guides and artwork materials to have interaction them. I also talked to them in advance about the vacation, the plane, who we had been likely to check out and what we were going to do right after we arrived.
