So my "Office Managers" daughter (who is 27) and her boyfriend, adopted a dog the other day from the SPCA. She is a 1 year old Pitbull/Boxer mix who's name is Maci.
The O.M's family is suppose to go up North to help out with the grandparents cabin to do some fixing up... and her daughter who adopted the dog, well its her boyfriend and his friends that are doing most of the work. Her daughter is excited for everyone to meet the dog... and everyone in their family is snubbing her, because they think the dog is dangerous.
NONE of them have even met the dog yet! Yes, I know a pitbull (gasp... hold you breath) we all know they have bad rap sheet for being dangerous. I am one of those people who believe it's all about the owner.
For goodness sakes I have a Rotti, and people get nervous around her. But would she ever harm, bite, attack someone for no good reason? NO! She hasn't yet..... she isn't a racist dog.... she gets long well with other dogs, plays well with kids. She is the biggest sweetie you probably will ever meet.
Anyhoo.. back to the topic... So all this week.. all I have heard about is this DOG! The O.M's other kids a son who is 34 and another daughter who is 23... have been calling here all week... including her sons wife who is being a complete biznotch about the whole thing.
The daughter in law said that if her daughter brings her dog, that her, her husband and their son were not going to go.
And that her son and her little shit Chihuahua are never going to be around that dog. And get this.. she said that the daughter should have consulted with the family first before getting "that" kind of dog.
I mean seriously.... she is a grown adult... why in the hell would she need to consult with them? She has her own house.
If I was the daughter... I would tell them all to go to hell.
It just bugs me that NO ONE... has even gone over there to see the dog or get to know her. But they all want to pass judgement before even getting to know her.
I talked to the daughter yesterday, and told her that if she wanted me to bring Layla over to play with her I would be more then happy to do that.
So it to the O.M's family SUCK IT UP..... get over it! I'm tired of hearing your Mother argue with all of you on the phone about this puppy who know one is giving a chance.
