(Opposing Views)   If you find out that you bought a dog that was given away without a soldier's knowledge while he was deployed, should you: a) give it back to him, b) sell it back to him, or c) ignore his pleas and keep it?   (opposingviews.com ) divider line

Bit'O'Gristle: /So let me get this straight. This fine young man was serving in our military, in a war zone where he could have been killed, and his coont of a girlfriend can't even manage to pony up the strength to watch a farking dog? Really? And instead of giving the dog to the parents of the soldier, she sold it on craigslist? Wow. He should really get a few kicks in the coont on that biatch...seriously.

whither_apophis: TV's Vinnie: "His girlfriend in Fort Carson was supposed to be petsitting Baxter, but she decided it was too much for her to handle. Instead of returning him to Robby's family, she sold him on Craigslist. "

I swear to farking god! Craigslist needs to be erased from the Internet, it's admins tossed live into woodchippers, and their children sold off to the Saudis! Absolutely nothing good has ever come from that horrible site!

I got '65 Chevy Malibu, with automatic drive, custom paint job too...


Sadly, it was actually stolen from a disabled war hero who's only source of income was touring around the country, showing it off at car shows and performing beautiful folk songs with his guitar. After the car was stolen, he lost his will to perform, and now lives in a homeless shelter, where his PTSD causes him to relive the horror of jumping on a live grenade to save his buddies, combined with the awful day he was carjacked.

Thanks, Craigslist.

Feckless douche abandons his dog with irresponsible girlfriend, she sells it, dog is now with a responsible family, where it enjoys lots of attention and exercise instead of being cooped up in some Fort Carson apartment/meth lab.

obamadidcoke: Of course, we only have the soldier's (or whiney pussy's) side of the story. It is entirely possible that she did not agree to keep the dog and unless there is some kind of written agreement she can always make the claim that he abandoned the dog when he went off to Afghanistan.

/When I was in the Army we would have hazed his punk ass for crying about his dog.
//I stayed in the Iraq during the first Gulf War when my Dad died because it was my duty.


Hey fellas we got us a geenyouwine ITG here who thinks watching The Hurt Locker = being in the army.

moothemagiccow: vicioushobbit: moothemagiccow: Not planning on staying in the country? Don't buy something that needs daily care.

You're trolling, right?
I don't participate in military worship

I mean, it's not like every soldier gets a dog right before deployment.
Just this one

Soldiers at times leave behind dogs that were with them when they were kids.
And they probably get "sent to a farm"

The dog is 3; how long has this guy been in the military?
Rookie mistake? Really? Apparently he's smart enough to kill people for money but not to leave a dog he cares so goddamn much about with someone he can trust. The dog's "part of the family" but no one cared about him until they found it he was sold.

Don't be such a douche, even if this is the faceless internet.
I left the country for a week. My plant died. He left for 9 months. Boo farking hoo. It's a dog. Buy another one.

Monaro: mesmer242: The article says the family that has the dog is also a military family.

Sounds like the beginning of a Robert Rodríguez movie. Let them fight it out at point-blank range!


Fighting over a dog? That's a ridiculous enough premise for a Coen brothers film. The showdown would be set in Afghanistan of course.

Nothing better than ripping a dog away from the small children who have been caring for it every day for months. It teaches them that their little lives are nothing next to someone with the label of "soldier" in our jingoistic country.

Also, if he's got six more months on deployment, what are they going to do with the dog? Stick him in a kennel for half a year?

$14000? Yeah, my kids would be saying goodbye to Mister Snugglepants. Then we'd all go to the shelter and get a free goddamn dog to help ease their pain.

He can get a new one for almost nothing. In fact, the pound kills the ones they can't give away.

How about you don't get a pet if you can't care for it?  If you choose a job that can just randomly send you away to die, the fewer people / beings relying on you the better.

Two things need to happen.

A - the dog dog needs to be returned to the soldier when he comes home.

B - the "girlfriend" needs to be taken to the county fair, and spend the way working as the schmuck in a ducking booth...filled with rancid pig shiat instead of water.
