Let the kids have their dog for cripe's sake!

I'm referring to the new story about Ellen giving up her dog to her hairdresser's kids - and then the cops take back the dog. To get the full story, go here. Now, what I want to know is, if the dog is happy, why can't the dog stay with them?

Do rules always have to be enforced? I know they have the rule that no families with kids under 14 can adopt a dog, but these kids are 9 and 11, not 2 or 3 where they could be really bothersome to the dog. It just doesn't seem right.

It reminds me of Mr. Bean's and my two girls. First there with one family they are told would be there family; then there with us and once again told we are their "forever family" and now they are with a third family. This poor puppy is going through the same sadness - and unnecessarily going to a third family IF they can find one.

Sure ticks me off.


  • i could this on one of the news channels. i think the agnecy is at fault for not explaining the key points of the adoption papers. when i adopted my cat, the lady went over everything with me. even when i worked at petsmart, i had to put the address done of where the pet would be going to. i had to tell customers that as well. not everyone is going to read a contract throughly, especially when you think the matter isn't that big of a deal.

    i feel really bad for the kids and the little dog. that poor little dog is going to be confused with going from one place to another. ellen found a suitable place for the dog that will be loved and cared for. i would be just as nervous as ellen with the dog being at a new home. i would be worried, not knowing how the people would treat the dog. let those kids have their dog back!!
