It's tearing me up inside!

Wh called me on his way home. He had checked his fb page and come across a picture. There sitting on a sofa was my Dane...

One of his fb friends runs a rescue. My Dane was fostered out.

I'm torn!!!

I'm glad when I gave him to animal control he wasn't put down and I'm happy he has found a new home but inside my heart is breaking.

I hate, HATE my mil for demanding I get rid of him. I want so badly for her to feel the pain of losing HER dogs!!!

I called about the pug. So far she hadnt found a home but she was doing good.

Yes moving away from that hell was best for us. I am happier here. Not really happy with my wh. He, so far, hasn't lost anything...he wasn't close to the dogs and doesn't really seem to care that I was or how badly I feel about losing them. I want to rip a strip out of him for that.

I just want to cry!

So sorry you had to give up your dogs. I don't think I could ever forgive that either. Hugs to you!

Does it make me a horrible person to want to make certain people hurt? That I want to make a few calls...

I know the dogs are better off. I know they will be loved and cared
For but I really feel like I had a part of me ripped out. Does that make sense? I dont know if I'll ever be able to get another dog without feeling scared to get attached.

On a happier note our neighbour on the north side had a litter of kittens. Tonight I got two of them. A brother and sister. What's creepy is that I told dd about the kittens BUT I only told her about them being orange and white. (Four kittens, three orange and white and one black and white.) I never told her about the black and white one.

So when I asked her if she wanted to pick one she told me she wanted the black and white one. I was freaked!!! She never saw them! After she went to bed I met up with our neighbour, the place is attached so it wasn't a far walk and picked them up. The boy is the black and white one, the girl is orange and white but looks like a tiger with the stripes. Neither has been overly socialized. The girl is friendlier. The boy not so much. Plus they are just weaned and I'm sure their first night away from mom isn't easy.

Dd will be happy.

Big hugs


One dog lover to another, you did the right thing. As much as my dogs are my babies, people first.

Hang in there. Perhaps contact a local pug rescue and let them know she's in the shelter.

you may also want to consider contacting the Dane rescue to give them background info on the dog - it will help to get him adopted out.

I got my mastiff in a divorce situation. I still send her mama photos and videos.

The pug went to a pug rescue and even before they had her they had a foster home ready. When I called the person who took her there for me she said they had applications in for a permanent home but no success yet.

The Dane I never expected to see on fb.

I sent him with a long letter detailing everything we knew and how he had been my protector.

I was thinking of calling about him.

I guess part of me just wants to forget so the pain of losing them goes away.

Side note: kittens!!!

About the kitten claws. Save your skin and your furniture. But a pair of nail clippers and get them used to having their claws trimmed now (most don't like have their paws held for it).

Hugs about the dogs. That would break my heart.

Oh ya!!! I have a nice long scratch down my hand already lol

They are both kind of skiddish. The orange and white girl is friendlier than her brother. Dd was thrilled! So was DS. He grabbed the girl and said "mine" lol. I have to call the vet to find out when we can have them spayed and neutered. They are eight weeks old.
