The most hurtful thing you have ever been told about your dogs is…..
I feel awful because my dogs have not received as much exercise as they should for the past 2 weeks. When DH is home he takes them walking but he works long hours and so I have not been able to do my share because of back problems.
Here is the reason for this rant-first it was my MIL that told my DH that if I couldn't care for the dogs when he wasn't home then we should not have them. Now one of my family members told me to take my lab back to the dog pound because with my back problems 2 dogs was too much for me.I am so upset. Fighting back tears upset! How dare someone say such a thing about one of my best friends? Do people have no clue what my dogs mean to me? I must admit I had a strong urge to slap somebody. I didn't though-this is what I said….
When everybody else is out living their lives who is here by my side? My boys. Who comes up to me and lays at my feet when I am lonely, who walks up to me and lays their head on my lap with a look of complete admiration? Who senses my pain and licks my hand-offering their best method of comfort? My boys of course. And they also don't care how I look, how much I weigh, if I wear jogging pants with hiking boots when I am in a relaxing mood, nor do they care if I am not in the mood to talk. They love me no matter what. They are my best friends-and I love them dearly. My boys happen to be a saddle back GSD and a chocolate lab!:web: Then I went on to tell them that I hope that was the last time they say something like that to me about my boys. The person looked at me like I was nuts.
What is the most hurtful thing someone has ever told you about your dogs, and how did you respond?
