mbc1963 Posted December 18, 2011 Report Share Posted December 18, 2011 I have several friends going through divorces right now. They all have young kids (2 to 11), and they all have dogs. And while I'm sure it's going to be hell on the kids, at least the adults recognize that they have a responsbility to the kids. In the cases of the dogs, they seem to all be bound for complete disregard. Friend A has a 10-year-old dachshund with back issues. He'll stay in the family home, which the husband is intent on keeping but can't afford. So... when the house goes under - what happens to the dog? Friend B has a dog adopted right after her marriage. It was all, "I love her so much I can hardly stand it," etc.. Then the baby came, the the dog became an annoyance, and now neither husband nor wife want her. She'll most likely go back to her foster home, but honestly, I think she's pretty much left alone in the house now. Friend C has a disastrous divorce: husband cheating several times - including with a 20-year-old friend of his daughter from another marriage. The first dog is living with the wife in an apartment, but the husband bought a puppy so the kids would give his mistress another chance. Gee, I wonder where that is going? I just feel so bad for all these animals, and I must admit it makes me a bit annoyed with the friends I'm trying to support. Things get messy, abandon your commitments to your animals. Yeesh.
