Don't know how much more I can take

Warning , rant coming .....

So I get this e-mail from one of my ex coworker with whom I stayed in touch. He's asking me if I can place his dog. When I ask him why , he says wifey is sick of all the poop , sick of the dog digging and sending dirt and fur in their pool. And then he writes , he hopes I understand and that HE loves his dog very much. Wifey is the one with the problem :rolleyes:

So my reply was : no , I didn't understand. Telling ME one dog makes too much poop , when he knows I have 3 big dogs here , and sometimes 4 when I have a foster. I wrote that the dog HAS to poop and it's THEIR responsability to pick it up and if he's digging , it's THEIR responsability to take him for walks and play with him so he doesn't get bored. And it's THEIR responsability to brush him and feed him good food so he sheds less ..... :wall: funny that he did not talk about the picture of a Yorkshire he sent me with the picture of his other dog .... guess the Yorkshire is smaller ,cuter and younger, this one is a keeper. :mad:

So now I guess it's MY responsability to place this dog or else he'll end up at the pound. :wall: I get so many e-mails like this one , thank dog I always get help from other rescues , but I don't know how much more I can take. :sad:

I'm with growler. :frustrated: I wish I were closer--I have a kennel building with heat that his wife could stay in...surrounded by setters. :mwaha:

but then the setters would have to come in to clean up, eat, and go to bed with us! :laugh:

but if you scoop after they poop - same as with cats there's no problem

as for the digging - if they had properly trained/socialized/exercised/mentally stimulated the pup he wouldn't be digging

Yep , I did explain everything to him .... I guess taking properly care of a dog is too much to ask. :frustrated:

You know , my Daisy :rip: was dumped at the spca because at 8 yr old , she was too old to give anymore pups :mad: and she had obviously just had given birth !

While I was filling out the adoption papers , a couple walked in with a beautiful , fun loving 3 yr old black lab. They we're dumping him , saying he was too excited and would jump on people , spca employee ask if he was neutered .... they said no. So she said : maybe you should start with that ! The couple said , nope , we don't have time for him anyway , the woman saying she went back to work .... like everyone who has dogs don't work :wall:

I was so mad when I heard this , and so sad when I saw the employee took the leash and got the dog in the back ... he seems so happy , he didn't know what was happening to him yet. :sad:

Yes they have a son , he's in his twenties , don't know if he still lives at home. I asked about the Yorkie (mostly how come he got another dog!) but he did not answered that question ! We are e-mailing right now because I simply do not want to speak to him !

March 2nd, 2008, 02:15 PM
At least they don't have little kids to neglect like the dog :sad:

Be aware he might ask you in the future to place the Yorkie too :sad:

Poor Daisy :sad: & poor Lab pup :sad:

why don't people understand they have feelings too :sad:, it's a lifetime commitment :yell:

Oh brother! Didn't they think dogs pooped? I can't stand people like that. It's like they want a pet just for the sake of saying they have a dog or cat or whatever they might have.

I think his wife has issues, and he does too for not having the cojones to tell her they aren't rehoming the poor dog.

Like you said, it's their responsibility to clean up after him and to keep him from being so bored that he will dig the yard.

Frenchy I would forward all our posts to make him realize what a complete and utter jerk he is.
He LOVES his dog,that must be a joke:yell:
I think this poor deprived dog probably would be better off somewhere else,how can you be loving an animal and at the same time be so willing to dump him:censored:jerk.
Poor you for having to deal with unfeeling morons.
I like the idea with the garbage-bag:laughing:
My Baileys backyard is full of poop(owners clean it up in the spring),I am sure there is a garbage-bag of poop there.

I agree with Growler. Rehome the wife. I don't understand how anyone can love a mean woman anyway.:shrug: I hate when people get mad at dogs because they poop !! What in the world !?!? Did someone trick them into thinking it was a stuffed animal and when they got it home they found out that it has to eat, and poop and maybe, I don't know...play? Or do something besides be an ornament?

At the shelter here in town they found a doggie tied up outside one mroning when they got there. Two days later a man came in with papers proving it was his dog. Vet bills showing that he took care of the dog etc. he told them his wife got mad at thim and dumped the dog to spite him but it was all resolved, blah blah blah. They didn't want to give him back. But eventually the relented because they were overcrowded and the dog was sooooo happy to see his human.

Guess who they found tied up outside the shelter a few days later????:mad::mad: This b **ch kept dropping the dog off in the middle of the night. They were so sorry they let the idiot have the dog back the first time and I think they were almost hoping he would try to come back again so they could let him have it !!

another moron how sad... i admire so much what you do frenchy the actual fostering, , i have helped with rescues and such and still write some back on ads like the dreaded craigslist.. have had the odd wanker response, oh well karma has a way of biting people back in the $%^ is what i say when they do respond like that, when i do get the odd thank you for the suggestions or nice responses it is cool, good to know not all people are completely clueless, and that some have a heart.. i wonder how that woman ever handled her sons dirty diapers...

I wonder if the wife wanted the dog in the first place, maybe she didn't, hubby got it promising to take care of it, hubby didn't live up to his part. Maybe wifey has the children to take care of, house to take care and works and something has to give, maybe she is exhausted while hubby sits on his butt watching TV and not doing his share. If he truely loved and wanted the dog, he would make sure the poop is cleaned up, he would make sure the dog was walked, he would make sure the dog was trained.

We don't know the situation at home, we shouldn't get too upset with wifey unless we know her side of the story.

They had this dog for 6 years. No young kids , both are working and other than at work , wifey is always home , she never goes out. Only watches tv ....

Also what makes me feel so bad is , when foster Ben left , I decided to not take any other fosters since vet told me Sam had 2 to 6 months to live (cancer)

For Daisy , I had a foster up until 2 weeks before she died 1 1/2 year ago , I don't want to go down that road again .... so all I can do right now is try to find foster homes,rescues,families for all the homeless dogs I hear about. :sad:

Don't feel bad, Frenchy, you're doing the best you can. As caring as you can be towards strangers and others, you have to look after your own family first. We all know you'd take this dog in a heartbeat if you felt comfortable doing so.

as a wife with kids... thanks for the vote of confidence but lemme tell you something grrlfriend-

im a working (yes, i have a job) stay at home mom who cooks, cleans, picks up dog poo, trains the dog, does home work with the 8yo, fixes lunches, changes poopy diapers, fixes the broken sink, feeds (raw mind you!!!) and then cleans up after the pets eat at 9pm at night, i do the laundry, drive the kids around to their functions (piano and TKD), plan birthday parties AND BAKE THE CAKE MYSELF!!! i wash toilets, wipe up the wandering toddlers food messes AND takes on (in full) the task of making sure ALL living creatures in my home are physically, mentally and emotionally healthy, from the smallest of the small to the largest of the large.

i was still in the fence with the dog when my husband came home with him, i didnt ASK for the 2nd two cats who 'just showed up' and i threatened to 'get rid' of Mister more times than you guys know..... but i never did it. i never just stupidly(not that there is a smartly way) dropped him off somewhere (although i threatened him on a few occasions :o good thing he doesnt understand english all that well!!! but you know... fair is fair.... ive threatened to 'put Jeffrey back' and 'sell Cailyn to the gypsies' and 'quit my wife job' on a number occasions!!!). now we HAVE seriously talked of finding him a new home due to financial reasons and still may but we have had a few money breaks lately AND my favorite grocery store is opening a place right in town. hopefully they need late night stockers....

anyway.... i got a little off track there... my point is, its a life, its a responsibility. there ARE some circumstances worth rehoming your pets but being a lazy slacker :censored: isnt one of them. sometimes there isnt enough money and you just cant squeeze blood from a stone but you can always make TIME, a little extra effort... and that goes for BOTH of them!!

dont ask me how i pull off my life but i do... not only do i do it but i do it well AND get pictures!!! AND chat on pets.ca. :cool:

ok, im done tooting my own horn now. i have a few questions abotu Evo for cats.... but ive done enough thread-jacking-like-actions for one day.

We really want another dog, but probably couldn't do it anyway.....

As for the digging and the poop, I've found that (if you're walking and playing with them and they still dig) using the holes they dig to bury the poop gives them an unpleasant surprise. It's cut back on digging here.

Maybe he could bury wifey in one of the holes instead? Probably be about the same.

I had a friend who had two golden retrievers and didn't want them anymore, so she thought she was doing them a favor when she "set them free". I was so angry with her we stopped speaking. She didn't even offer them to me to care for. She figured they were wild animals and should be returned to the wild....I tried to explain the error of her logic and how dogs are domesticated and have relied on humans for thousands of years. No dice. She wouldn't even go looking for them with me. They never turned up at the shelter, so hopefully some family where she abandoned them took them in--they were so sweet.
