Reason # 491

Remember this little Chinese Crested rescued from the Quebec puppy mill?



He was adopted out by Toronto Animal Services and then he was returned by the owner a few weeks later. Why? Because, the owner said, the dog had diarrhea.

I hope he went in the owner's shoe. A lot.

So, what? Are you telling me the adoptor never thought to take it to the vet to get treatment? Changed the environment, changed the food all at once, never even checked what the dog had been eating before, never took him to the vet, and then blamed the dog?

My guess is that s/he does not deserve a dog anyway....

I hope the owner gets diarrhoea and is disowned by its family.

Is that unkind of me?

The moron was probably feeding the dog all kinds of rich food instead of keeping it bland with small meals until the digestive system adjusted to a real home with real food at regular intervals.

Your too kind.

But now a REAL human being with heart and soul will step forward and adopt this deserving little fella.

I sincerely and truly hope that when the ahole that adopted and then returned this pitiful, shy, nervous little soul (who has already suffered enough in life) becomes an incontinent burden on his/her family, they ship him/her off to a home to sit in their waste. Have they ever heard of a trip to the vet, a little kaopectate, boiled rice, a diaper...using their small, stupid little mind. You try everything you can to change things, and when those don't work, you find new ones and you try those....

The conversation regarding a vet went something like this:

staff: Did you take him to a vet?

owner: Yeah.

staff: What's the name of the vet?

owner: It's, uh, Ro ... Robert? ... Roger? ...

staff: Do you remember the name of the hospital?

owner: Uh, it was, uh ... it ...

The owner finally gives the name of some vet clinic. A phone call is made. The clinic has no record of the Chinese Crested or the owner.

The good news is that this little cutie was saved from a crappy (pardon the pun) life with that particular person.

The bad news of course is that he's back at TAS. Fingers crossed his next home is his forever home, with somebody that actually cares about him.

I wonder where this Adopter dropped off his kids when they vomited....and made other messes?

This is a blessing in disguise for this little dog but this man or woman who did this will learn about abandonment as they age.
Just ask some of the folks in Nursing homes who have NO visitors.
Many of them DO have kids.
I guess they don`t want to deal with some messes that might happen.
