wasn't this greenlit earlier?

Wow. That's messed up. Did the guy at least make threatening phone calls to strangers trying to help him out?
 
2013-02-21 01:47:38 PM
I'm glad they got reunited.

Looks to me like Ginger wasn't the real biatch in this story.  Good for him.

The ex - not the dog

It's all fine and dandy to hate someone for a reason, but why take it out on a 3rd party, like a child or a pet.... I dont get it.

Dog was the only thing I was adamant about keeping in my divorce.  Not negotiable.

There is a special level of hell reserved for someone who fights to take custody of a family pet through divorce proceedings, then surrenders the pet to a shelter after winning.  Basically, she didn't want it but didn't want him to have it either.  Screw the dog just as long as it screws her ex over too.  Lovely person.

To be fair, there could easily be more to the story. But if it happened due to spite, then I totally agree with you.

I'm pretty sure that level is located in an even lower and hotter region than the one reserved for people who talk at the theatre.

\CBS..cool basset story
I was out in my driveway when a basset hound came ambling up. I thought he was lost, so I said, "Hey, buddy".
He gave me a big ol' goofy basset hound howl and came over to me.
I looked down at his tag and his name was Buddy.

Fair enough, but why not give it back to your ex?  How is a shelter better?
 
2013-02-21 01:56:13 PM
I hope that ex-wife gets treble damages inflicted - thirty years of feeling abandoned before she can be reunited with someone who loves her. Which is probably no one.

I can see why he divorced her.

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

Kinda reminds me of the local lady who was arrested Tuesday for having sex with a pit bull in full view of her neighbors and passers-by.

Why are women so vindictive during a divorce? Because they want to exact financial, legal and emotional warfare on their ex. That's why. And fark 'em that's why.

Endive Wombat: Fair enough, but why not give it back to your ex? How is a shelter better?


Because the point is that HE wanted the dog, which means she doesn't want him to have it.  Known a number of guys who have gone through this.

Years back a buddy of mine got divorced in Illinois.  It was a messy divorce from the start; he came home from work (he was a railroad engineer and was out of state on a choo-choo for a few days) to find police waiting for him.  Apparently the called in saying that he was beating on her the night before, they arrested him.  When he was able to get out the next day he found the house empty; everything, including all his personal possessions, the fridge, coat hangers, fire wood, everything.  And the dog, which he owned before even meeting her.

He eventually got most of his personal possessions back, besides his fishing gear and the dog.  The dog she gave to her parents.  Who a few months down the line returned it to him.
 
2013-02-21 02:06:23 PM
The article is kind of vague - did he actually adopt the dog, or did he just visit her?
Poor old doggie.

DNRTFA, but i'm sure there is at least one biatch involved in this process.

No, this happens everyday. If its not a pet its something else like a home that was passed down to you, classic car you spent years restoring , family heirloom, favorite piece of funiture or kids.

Honestly, I have no idea. It might have been a housing issue. For all we know, there might have been housing issues on both sides that neither side necessarily expected. Not all apartments allow pets.

Okay, CSS time. My family took in a divorce dog just last year. Absolutely adorable dog. Her family really did try to keep her. The mother and daughter, who had custody, were looking at a couple of years in a pet-free apartment before they could get a house. Another family member would have kept the dog for them, but turned out to have allergies. (I don't know why she didn't go back to the ex. Don't know the whole story.) Anyway... they carefully looked for another home for the dog. (This was a friend of a friend of a coworker of my dad's, or something close to that. It all started with an e-mail floating around my dad's office.) And the family came, met my parents, the other dogs, and so on, and everyone decided it was a good match.

Granted, little Nellie didn't go to a shelter. Which is great, because she's 12 years old, which would have made her more difficult to place. But the principle was similar. She didn't become a divorce dog out of spite or anything. Just unfortunate circumstances. She's clearly always been a well-loved dog.

/css

In any case, we can only speculate about the details relating to the shelter hound in the story.

Deja vue.
My ex did the same thing.
But a PI 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.

If your relationship gets to this point without an outside factor causing brain damage or a chemical imbalance, you probably either didn't date long enough or stayed married too long.

He got out the next day!?!  Ex called the cops on me for same type of charge after a nasty argument on phone, spent three weeks in county jail waiting for bail , because I am unemployed (I lost my job just before this happened)  as part of my bail I had to give up apt. and move back in with parents, report to cop shop every monday to sign in, refrain from booze and drugs. If I break any of those terms back I go to jail 'till trial. Oh, and I have to pay for the whole trial, jury selection, everything.  wow, end of vent, sorry about that

/if you don't hear from me for 5 or 10 years then things didn't go my way

IIRC, there was a mandatory two day incarceration for allegations of domestic violence but his boss at the railroad was able to prove to a judge that the guy was, in fact, out of state on a train at the time of the claimed abuse.  He was in jail effectively a day / day and a half.

Ah I see. Unfortunately I was with her when alleged events happened but she didn't call police for three days, right after our argument.
