Wow, the ex-wife kept the dog and immediately gave her up? Either there's more to the story or she's the worst.

His ex kept the dog for 10 years, and dumped it.  There's got to be more to the story.  Does it need to be euthanized and she just didn't have the stomach for it, so she death-by-humane society'd it?

He must have felt like he was walking on sunshine.

1. The ex-wife took the dog.
2. She kept it for a while.
3. She then gave it to a human society.
4. An elderly couple gave it a good home.
5. They returned it when they realized they could no longer provide that good home.
6. Guy gets his dog back.

Woman is a coont, no two ways about it.

The ex gave up the dog, an elderly couple adopted it for several years and then returned her when they couldn't care for her. It's unclear how long post-divorce the ex actually kept her for.

Or maybe she was moving and couldn't take the dog so she left the poor thing at the shelter instead of finding it a new home (I hate when people do that). She could have called the ex and asked him if he wanted to take the dog instead of sending it to the pound and likely death... Not sure how a living creature can be your faithful companion for 13 years and then you're like, "You know what? Fark you. Go to this place which is almost certainly going to kill you. Laters!"

Yeah, we don't know the whole story but it still seems like kind of a dick move that she didn't offer him up to the ex.

Didn't realize that part, which only increases the chances the ex-wife was really pulling a major douchebag move.

Definitely. She just didn't want him to have it.  Probably because, "I just know you love that dog more than me."  Yep, lady.  Probably.


//Probably has done more to deserve love, too.

I came here to attack the ex-wife. I see that's been covered.

Unless...maybe he was an abusive POS who threatened to kill her if she ever left him. One night, they go sailing on a friend's boat and they take the dog along. About half way through the boat ride she pushes the dog overboard and acts like she also got dragged in because she was holding the leash. He searches frantically because he doesn't think she can swim but there is no trace of her because she's hiding next to a bouy, with the dog. She was taken in by an elderly couple who see her shivering wet with the dog, sitting at the bus terminal. They allowed her to stay for three weeks, while she put the pieces of her life back together and they formed a bond with the dog. When she is ready to leave, the elderly husband sheds a tear because he will miss the dog, who has been by his side for almost the entire three weeks. Not wanting to blow her cover, and seeing how much they love the dog, the ex-wife tells them to keep it. A few years later, the husband is hosptalized with a cold that turns into pneumonia. He passes a short time later leaving behind his greiving widow and the dog who gave him joy in his final days. The dog spends the next few weeks in a deep depression, sitting at the front door as if he is waiting for the old man to return. The widow's children finally convinced their mother that she shouldn't stay in the house alone and she moves in with her eldest son, whose wife is allergic to dogs. The dog ends up in the shelter, where the husband finds it while doing his daily internet search for clues that his ex-wife is still alive. Now that he knows the dog didn't die at sea, he's gotten the exidence that he needs that she staged her accident. After the interview at the Humane Shelter, he found out where the old widow is staying so that he can stake out her house, waiting patiently for the day that his ex-wife comes to visit her.


/...or, the ex-wife couold just be a coont who kept the dog so that he couldn't have it

Did the dog add any new songs to his repertoire?

The ex gave up the dog in 2003, right after the divorce.  If you read some of the other articles the elderly couple adopted the dog from the same humane location in 2003.  The ex is just evil!

That dog is holding on. Looks like average lifespan of Bassies is at around 10-12 years, so it is a reunion that might never have had happened.

Can't imagine ever being in a situation where I'd give up my furry dwarf. Would not move somewhere that prohibits animals, would not relocate if he couldn't come with. He is the closest thing I'll probably ever have to a kid, and there is much I have invested in him.

This ex-wife in the story is an unredeemable skag.

So, the ex-wife kept the dog out of spite, and then told it, "See you next Tuesday." She sounds delightful.

What a complete farking biatch.  What kind of a farking coont would do that?  And yet, if they guy went over to his ex's house and beat her to death with a hammer, which is what she deserves, he would be the one to get in trouble.

This world is so farked up.

Bassets FTW!

Yes, the ex wife is a total farking biatch.  Most of us are at some point.

/got the dogs in the divorce
//still have them
///one is a ginger basset named Ginger, so I'm really getting a kick....

My ex did the same thing.
But a I got her back to me after 5 months.
She was one happy lab when she saw me get out of the car in that cage full of beagles.
She was barking up a storm, too.
"See!!! I told you I had a Human! I told you I wasn't a beagle!"
And when I get her out of that cage, I didn't mind that she smelled like beagle poop, or was slobbering all over me.
She was very psyched to be back and when I bought a house with 5 acres in the county she seemed to understand we were going to be OK. Gave me 5 more years, and then just up and died, after acting like a puppy for 16 1/2 years.
I miss that dog.
People still talk about her.
The ex, not one mentions.
She was a coont.

"Ex is a complete and total biatch" seems to be covered.  But it bears repeating.  My cats are my family.  When my dogs were still alive, it was the same.  I can't imagine what has to go through a person's mind when they give away an animal.  I imagine it's the same as giving a kid away for adoption (at least from my perspective of never having had kids).

My ex was a jerk in lots of ways, but when he remarried and his second wife wanted him to get rid of the pet, I was the first one he called up when he needed to find a home for it.

I already bawled my eyes out reading this  in last saturday's paper, and now it is dusty as hell in my room again.  She's an old dog, so I am joyful that they were reunited in time.

/know that building well.  hope to adopt a fur kid (or two) from there in the not too distant future, after I get the eye surgery stuff squared away.  There is an adjacent cemetery where 4 of my critters are interred.

//Just a little over 4 months since we put our Binx down.  I miss having a critter around.
