I do not have a new puppy. Please go and READ. It is my BIL and he will not get it for a few more weeks. I just came with him to see her. But thanks for immediately assuming(even though I wrote differently) that I got the pup.

Katz, you are out of line in jumping on animal lover like that. She is a kid, she didn't "get" the abbreviation and she apologized and explained her misunderstanding. Enough already. It's not like you haven't brought animals into your home in the past under false pretenses. Leave the kid alone.
Sineena, in this instance, you might want to think about the old saying "the pot calling the kettle black".
You are BOTH out of line in this instance and owe the kid an apology.

Sorr Pyr, but I think not. You have to be 13 to join and that is old enough to know how to ask a question nicely. If she did not know the abbreviation, she could have actually asked. Or she could have looked it up. I will not apologize to someone who is looking to start a fight, just because they are a kid.
Oh, for the love of Heaven Katz, don't be a twit~! the kid was trying to find out about a new puppy. "how;d you get it? Where?, etc..." She doesn't know and could probably care less about your past issues. YOU are the one bringing them up all the stinking time. No matter what is said to you, it's an automatic assumption on your part that they're out to be argumentative with you.
I generally stay out of the fray, but in this case, YOU are the one picking the argument. YOU are dead wrong lady.
Get over your thinking that everyone is always out to get you. Even if some ARE (just because you're paranoid, it doesn't mean that someone's not out to get you theory), this wasn't the case here.
yep hon, animal lover is innocent, I on the otherhand am not. It amazes me that you come on here still. After all, we stalked you right? Werent you in fear for yours and your kids life? OMG! I keep waiting on your definition of stalking. BTW, thats a huge accusation.
Nice pics of the pup, congratulations on the new addition to the family. Does that mean Chingers is on his way out? This one is a good choice. Small, and dosen't shed. No reason to change the carpet now. Unless he fails to house break like the cats. How are they?
I'm going to try to maintain the roll of disinterested party....
I, too, interpretted animallover's post as attempt to stir the pot, but wasn't sure. (You'll note my first response on this thread (#2) was very matter-of-fact and neutral).
If animallover had a question about the puppy pictured on the other thread, why didn't they post on that thread? It's much more practical to have the pictures and questions right there in the same thread. The new thread struck me as a direct challenge. Maybe that wasn't the intent, but that's how I read it.
I don't understand why so many people are so anxious to get up in Katz's face all the time. I guess I don't equate "rehoming" as a Class I felony. It's not like she is producing "Katz' Home-Style Puppy Sausage" or anything... lol
Animallover is a kid. She doesn't know the "rules". You may not remember but she's the one who wanted another dog and was trying to convince her parents. She kept asking Sienna how she talked her mom into a dog. I think she had honest curiosity.
As far as rehoming not being a felony, some of us may think it should be. I have had my fair share of rescued problems. When I took them on it was for life. People who rehome make me sick period, regardless of the reason they rehome. That is how I feel and I'm sorry to whoever doesn't like it.

"People who rehome make me sick period, regardless of the reason they rehome."
Let me tell you a little story, corgilover...
A few years ago, we adopted a retired greyhound. She had already been returned once to the rescue for a vague reason about showing aggression to another pet. The rescue people wanted to make sure the dog wasn't going to get bounced around anymore. It wouldn't be fair.
In less than two weeks, the dog bit our five year old daughter in the forehead, requiring stitches. We blamed ourselves -- we'd allowed the two to be alone in the same room. How could we be so irresponsible? We blamed our daughter -- she must have been annoying the dog. Did we blame the dog? No. We were committed to providing this dog a good home.
We spent the next 10 days on pins and needles while we held the dog in quarantine. The dog needed to be confined to our home -- no dog park to run off excess energy -- kept in the same house with the only person she's ever shown any aggression to.
Within a month, the dog bit our daughter again. This time nearly slicing off her right ear. While sitting at the emergency room, my husband shakily called the rescue, telling them "We need to find her another home." A few minutes later, my daughter sighs and says...
"I sure hope I like my new family..."
My daughter thought we would consider keeping the dog and getting rid of HER! It's times like those that bring your values sharply into focus.
So I'm sorry if I and my family makes you sick. That's just the way it's gonna be.
