Did you hear the story about the guy in New York that is SUING his ex-girlfriend for custody…of their dog? He’s racked up $60K so far (and is asking for donations from the public) because he says she kidnapped “Knuckles” and took him to California. Listen, Lucas and I love our dogs like they are children, but this is insane.
We are the owners of two shelter rescues, and we could not love them any more. Their adoption fees were about $250 each. Had we not adopted them, they’d be dead. Do I think shelter pets are best for everyone? Absolutely not. And this is not some kind of end-all be-all rule that I’m trying to throw down.
But my heart broke this weekend at a special beer-and-puppies event (gosh, my husband has an awesome job) where I got to hold some truly Pitiful Pups and thank goodness for people that devoted their lives to taking care of these guys. And now, your gratuitous puppy shots.
