I am not comparing a dog to a child in the way that you think. In my opinion I think that people use the "I don't have time for the dog" as an excuse to get rid of him. So that is why I said that if you can't handle a dog and a child than you probably can't handle more than one child.......only because I am sure that you "can" make time but you just prefer not to. And that is fine....not everyone has to be animal lovers. I just wish that more people would figure this out before they actually get a dog.

Sandy...I know that Duke bit Kaylee and I agree that Michelle should find him a more suitable home. I am no in anyway arguing that.

so youve got time for 2 kids and not one kid and a dog?

im not saying YOU in general
youre getting rid of duke b/c he bit kaylee

thats why youre getting rid of him
not b/c theres not enough time for him

or you would have gave him away last week instead of ut effort into finding him a crate and such so he could be in the house without destroying it

lol

Suzy..

a child needs a LOT LOT LOT LOT LOT more attention than a damn dog.

you'll see.

u cant just fill Kristins dish when shes hungry and let her go at it. u cant just let her wander around outside for 10 minutes so she can go to the bathroom. U cant just bathe her when her hair starts to get everywhere. U cant just take her to the doctor once every 5 years for rabies shots.

Kids take a lot of attention. a loT more than a dog.

I am sorry but giving away a dog because you do not have the time for it is only FAIR to the pet. It needs a lot of attention too and to say someone is irresponsible for getting rid of it is stupid. They have a family to raise and they want to the best for everyone involved. Do not get all high and mighty about animals with someone who has a home to manage and a baby to watch over. It is hard and Suzy, you will see some of it soon. You wont have to deal with running a home and doing everything a stay at home mom does because you will have people to help you. It is NOT the same.

She wanted to ge rid of him regardless of that. She has a home to run and a child to care for. Not everyone has the time in their day to walk the dog and give him or her the attention they need. YOU would not understand the Suzy.

She thinks she knows it all and has it all figured out. Just wait until you have to get REAL job and work all day to come home and clean and cook and take care of a child. Then see if you want to walk a dog, clean its poop, give it a bath and feed it.

Suzy you just need to stop while you're ahead. You don't even have your baby yet & you're telling ME that I wouldn't be able to handle 2 babies because I can't handle a dog & a baby. & yes I was considering giving Duke away last week because I don't have the time for him. I live ON MY OWN. I don't have parent's or anyone else living in the house to help with everything. I take care of Kaylee & this house ON MY OWN. It's a hell of a lot harder than you think it's going to be. I still don't see how you're comparing a dog to a child. A baby needs so much more attention than a dog, A baby is NOTHING like playing house & having a pet.

2 kids can be taken care of at the same time. You can prepare them the same meals, play with them together etc. With a dog you have to take special time out of your day to bathe, feed, play with etc when you otherwise need to do laundry, dishes, cook for the family. It is not quite as easy as your young mind thinks.

You have no clue what you are talking about Suzy. Life isn't easy and when you can make it a little easier AND give your pet a better home most people will do so. Selfish people will keep a dog and let it go without attention.

YOU will see little girl. That's all there is to it. You are thinking now it's going to be a piece of cake, which for you it probably will be, because you have people there to help. If you were living on your own, with 6 dogs or however many, had to take care of the baby, take care of the house, while Travis was away working most of the time, you would see. So stop comparing dogs to babies & saying if I can't handle a dog & my baby that I can't handle another baby, you sound like an immature little 13 year old.
