    Over the weekend I was discussing moving back to England with a "friend" of some years. I say of some years because you would think she would know us by now.

    She asked what we were going to do with our animals. I said, were we go, they go. She was appalled that we would not just spend the money on getting them to England but could even be bothered. She said she would have thought we would have had the older ones put down and re-home the younger ones.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    PARDON !!!

    I was outraged but stayed calm with her and asked her when she moved from Costa Rica to England did she not consider having her daughter put down ! Her reply to that was "do not be so absurd that is different " Well dear friend I have to tell you that for me it is not different and I feel the same about our animals as you do about your daughter.

    Oh my goodness Sue!! My puppy is my baby. She is as much part of the family as my daughter and husband and I wouldn't leave any of them behind anywhere.
    It doesn't matter what it costs for your babies does it?
    Grrrr

    Stupid woman! I too would take my animals where i go. What a ridiculous thing to say to put them down. I'm with you 100% mostly i like animals better than half the human race!

    This doesn't surprise me. I was quoted £1,100 for spinal surgery for my lovely dog. The alternative was to have him put to sleep. He was just turned 7 at the time and I was told to expect a 96% - 98% success rate for the op. It was a no brainer for me. Some "friends" were amazed and pointed out that I could have spent that on a holiday if I'd had Boris put down. :mad:
    BTW - Boris lived to the grand old age of 14, having made a 100% recovery from his spinal surgery. Cancer got him eventually and I still think it that £1,100 ranks as one of the best spends I ever made.

    so cute, and lovely. I bet feeding time at your home is a nightmare.

    if i could i would have more dogs, but hubby wants holidays as well. so to be fair we only have one dog. our nephew babysits when we go on holiday. Bruce the dog, loves it when we go away. gets to eat all sorts of rubbish and sneaks on to our bed as well.

    Yes Ellebear, I would love to, but what could I trade her in for. I can not think of anything useful, can you ??

    It is fun really.

    All the dogs eat in seperate places as some finish faster than others. That is twice a day. 5 cats eat on the kitchen window sill and the rest in a stable, that is twice a day as well. The goats in their house, the horses in their stables, they eat 3 times a day and have breakfast and lunch in the paddocks but come in to sleep at night. Then we drive 2 kilometers every day to feed a lovely feral cat every day.

    And then................ we eat lol.

    I was shocked today when a woman i know to look at, was calmly telling her friend that she gave 1 of her 2 dogs away because the council was putting her in a new kitchen, and she didn't want dog hairs all over it!!!!
    I was speechless and did make a sarky comment about giving her kids away too as they make more mess!

    :8855:I know which I'd rather have.
    I also hate it when you lose a pet and someone asks "Will you get another one?" like it's a new fridge or something. Would they ask the same of someone who lost a child? Maybe some of the morons mentioned here might :D

    That is unbelievable. Not only does it show her in her true colours, an animals collector and not an animal lover but shows a total lack of perception. Doesn't she realise the two dogs will miss each other.............................

    Oh and I forgot to say that the person in question, who had so much to say about my animals, did leave her horses and dogs in Costa Rica when they left there.

    You know there are people who think that those of us who love our animals and give them almost equal status are nuts, but you know dogs wag their tails and not their tongues, they love you fat or thin, old or young, glamorous or scruffy. It is called unconditional love.

    My cat didn't love me unconditionally on Friday when I gave him his flea treatment. Seems to have forgiven me now though :D
