I hope that nobody takes this the wrong way but man I am so annoyed right now I just want to scream. First off.........I do agree with getting rid of a dog if they have caused any harm or have come close to causing any harm to anyone. But to get rid of a dog because you now have a baby and no longer have time for the dog is just plain wrong to me. My aunt had two little yorkies and up until she had her little girl they were everything to her. Suddenly once her baby was born she got rid of one and then the other all because she didn't have time. I am sorry but it doesn't really take that much time to give a dog a bit of attention every now and then during the day. In my opinion then people really shouldn't have more than one child than because really how in the world would you be able to handle having two or more children if you can't handle having a child and a dog.

I am sure that a lot of you may take offence from this post........but Suzy wouldn't be in the business that she is in if more people would really think and research about what it is like to own a dog. It is a lifetime commitment (dogs lifetime) .......not just "oh I'll just get rid of the dog because it no longer fits into my lifestyle" And no I am not saying that any of you have said that, so don't freak out on me. It's just that there are many people who have this attitude and that is why there are so many dogs needing to be rescued. I just wish people would really think about it before getting a dog. Yes puppies are so cute and hard to resist but they get bigger and lots of people don't think about that. Sorry this is just a really touchy subject for me.

So Suzy do what you need to do, I am sure that once Kristen is here you will learn what works for you, your baby and your dogs Smile

*applause*

i sincerely apprectiate and want to thank you for your post
really
it means alot to me to hear that

Very Happy
if you have a baby and then two years later you have another baby do you just give the first baby away because you "wont have time" for it?
and look at how much more attention kids need than dogs? what about the families that have multiple children? should they just give away thier kids?


thank you shanyan
Very Happy i couldnt have oput it better myself

I don't know if you're talking to me or just everyone in general but I'm sorry that I admit I don't have time for Duke. I have Kaylee to take care of who I can't take my eyes off of for a second & a house to take care of. Maybe if I had some help taking care of the dog I would be able too. Shane works 12 hour swing shift so he's not here a whole lot & when he is, he's sleeping to get ready for the next day/night of work. We got the dog before he got this new job, when he had time to help & play with him & take him for walks. & you can not honestly say just because someone can't take care of a baby & a dog that they wouldn't be able to take care of 2 babies. Give me a break.

whatever.

if somebody wants to get rid of a dog because they cant give it the proper attention, who cares?

Bottom line.... Duke bit Kaylee.
Thats all that needs to be said.

Bye Duke!

SUZY.. for gods sake..

CHILDREN ARE NOT DOGS.

dogs are animals.. they eat off the floor, lick their ass, eat dog poop, chew the furniture, and pee and crap in public.

How can you, almost a mother, compare a dog to a human being?

Dogs require a different kind of attention than babies.

and sorry tosay, i dont have to worry about jacob attacking Caitlyn and ripping her to shreds because she hung all over him.

Get a grip.

not trying to argue or anything...

OMG.. How can you honestly compare a child to a DOG! Especially in that sense "Oh would you give your first baby away if you had a second".. Jesus.

I love animals but there's no way in hell I'm going to scimp out on the care of my daughter just to give a dog 10 minutes of attention a day. Kaylee's worth far more of my time than that. Sorry you guys don't see it that way.

because how much more fuggin attention does a dog need than a child? how can you have enough attention to give TWO OR MORE kids but not a child and a dog? i dont get ti?
i seriously dont get it at all

a dog need bare neccecities to be happy
food and water and shelter. and to be pet every once in a while
if your able to provide that for a dog then you have enough time for one
they dont nNEED to be walked
they dont NEED to be indoors 24/7

they need
water daily
food daily
and shelter from cold/rain/heat etc
