Most of the people around me are getting married and having babies.
Ive said a thousand times that I support these things 100%! Nothing makes me happier than seeing the one I LOVE experiencing these amazing things. Epecially the baby makers. I love me some babies.
I have ONE large bone to pick with certain baby mamas.
Having a baby DOES NOT mean you can ditch your dog.
I HATE and I mean absolutely HATE when people abandon their pets. You cant trade in your dog for a baby. Thats complete bullshit. Im sorry but I find it completely heartless to give away an animal that youve had for years because you decide to have a baby. When you decide to get a pet that means you are agreeing to have them until they DIE, NOT until you "have too much on your plate" or until you trade them in for the real deal. I could go on about this for DAYS become I feel so passionately about the subject.
And before I get 30 emails explaining:
"how hard it is to be a parent and a dog owner"
"how much time and effort children require"
"how dogs act 'differently' when a new baby joins the home"
and so on...
I DONT WANT YOUR EXCUSES.
Today Im here representing the dogs so many people promised to love and then gave away because they cant speak for themselves.
The one and only excuse Ill understand is a pet becoming aggressive toward a child. THAT IS IT. I completely understand that. I dont understand LASINESS.
Moral of the story: Dont be selfish, keep your pet. They love you and count on you and they dont deserve to be shoved aside because youve decided to replace your "first baby" with a REAL baby.
Annahita if you ever stop loving Ollie I will personally drive to Atlanta to bring him to live with his cousins! Dont let me down!!
And for the record these 2 have a FOREVER HOME because NO ONE in the world could ever REPLACE them.
