SincereArtisan Posted January 10, 2009 Report Share Posted January 10, 2009 Any of you reached that point in your life where you find yourself acting more like an adult than your parents??? My mom desperately wants a dog. Her track record consists of: Chinese Crested Puppy Xmas of 2007. She went out and GOT the dog Xmas eve. Xmas morning the dog was on it's way to me via my sister who was visiting at the time. My mom freaked at how demanding the little puppy was in one night and decided it was better off with me, so I could find it a new home and "get her money back." Greyhound, "Monty" in spring 2008. She managed to keep this dog almost 2 months. He began to exhibit separation anxiety when she'd be gone 2-3 days at a time on plane trips. This required medication that was roughly $45 a month. She also had to pay for a sitter when she was gone, which was expensive. That, combined with food and a torn nail from climbing the stairs a bit too fast caused her to get exasperated at the expense and turn him back into the rescue. She just picked this up today: http://charlotte.craigslist.org/pet/979671003.html And she had the audacity to tell the rescuers, that should it not work out, her daughter helps rescue border collies, and it would go to me so I could rehome her. I give it a week. Tops. And I'll be surprised if she makes it that long. -=sigh=- I love my mom dearly, I wish she'd just take my advice and rescue an older, already housebroken dog, who is not very demanding at all...but she is so fixated on getting a puppy....
