Argh just a mad rant

An acquaintance of mine found out she was pregnant. She then decided to get a puppy.

Now the baby is born and the puppy has grown she is saying its too big and she hasn't got the time for it hmm

She is sending the poor thing to the dogs home. Why bother getting one in the first place you knew it was going to grow! You knew it was going to need time!

I got my beloved boy 9 years ago a rescue that somebody no longer wanted. I couldn't imagine sending him away because he took too much times.

I feel so sad. I would take the poor buggar if my boy wasn't such an antisocial brat blush

Sorry but dp wasn't listening to me

Greyhounds are so lovely. I would definitely consider getting one in the future. I was asked millions of times because my dog is such a handful. I just looked at them like that confused

I asked her if she couldn't hold out for the dogs trust because they wouldn't put it down. She said she needed it gone now. I was like at the risk of it being pts? She said they don't do that.

I know for a fact they do do it but didn't want to argue. Suppose it's her dog her choice her conscious sad

That's ridiculous - Weimaraner's fit in with any colour scheme.

Not black and red apparently Ruby.

(another friend took the dog on, luckily she'd decorated in browns and creams huh)

I think some people have some sort of running list that they must tick off - move in with partner - tick, get a cat - tick, get married - tick, have kids - tick, get a dog - tick. I hate them

my (beautiful) cat was a relationship/marriage break up, she went into the rescue with the other cat (now sadly dead) for 7 days & then on the 8th day their 'owner' decided to call & claim them back. The rescue wouldn't let her have them (they said because she made no contact at all in that week) & rehomed them to me.

My lovely dog is also a victim of a marriage breakup, they couldn't be bothered with her & because she went back to the original fosterer, we understand she didn't have a very nice life at all...We love her dearly [love love]

Our whippy was in the RSPCA at 12 months old because his owners had a baby angry. Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but usually pregnancies take 9 months and pups shouldn't leave mum much before 8 weeks. So, in the case of whippy, when they got him, they knew they were having a baby and still thought, oh yes lets get a cutsey little puppy too. Morons.

Their loss, our gain. He is fab, but should never have been left in those kennels.

I find the best way to have coordinating pets is to have a large variety of colors, breeds and species, that way at least one of them will match each room grin

I still maintain Weimaraners go with everything wink

She wouldn't be a friend of mine anymore and id be telling her exactly why. Dogs home? Will be dead by the end of the month. Selfish disgusting person angry

Agree with poster regarding comments once pregnant, several people have already suggested that with my cat, the best being well. She was only a stray. FFS she was a stray four years ago, she's now a much loved pet and is going nowhere. We will keep cat away from Moses basket d nursery but that's it. smile

A good, now ex, friend of mine did the pregnant comment thing, "but you've got an sbt, you cant have one if those with a baby" confused

That coupled with her reluctance to visit me because of said snarling beast even though I said id put her in another room signalled the end of our friendship. Why would I stay mates with a dickhead?!
