Thank you for the laugh, I really hope the family was honest b/c those stories break my heart thinking of the dog wondering why his family left and never came back for him
I think they'll come back for their dog. They could've dumped him at the animal shelter if they wanted.

That costs money. Pets are abandoned all the time around here, because pet owners cannot afford to pay the fees that shelters want for taking their unwanted pets in.....

it was a funny joke/idea that was posed. But yeah, 100% they are coming back. They text me every day to ask how he's doing and I share pictures with them. They are obsessed with this dog. I get it; same way I am with Bella.

I caught Hank this morning peeing on the comforter that was hanging off the edge of our bed. My wife accidentally left the bedroom door open for maybe 20 seconds and he was in there like a little piss ninja. Luckily he was diapered and it caught it all. To whomever invented dog diapers

Didn't know that. Just looked it up for my city and it costs $40 for a dog and $30 for a cat. That's discouraging.

The only time I took an animal to the shelter was about 2008 when a homeless cat had babies in my backyard, and we didn't pay anything.

These are the type of people that shouldn't own pets to begin with. I especially dislike owners that decide towards the end of an older dog or cat's life they cannot take care of it any longer and think it's okay to abandon them.

These idiots ought to be treated the same way!

Yeah, that's when your babies need you the most. You gotta take care of them in their old age.

It's way higher here on the east coast. The nearest shelter to us charges a $275 intake fee for dogs, and $150 for cats.....

I can see they're probably setting those fees really high to discourage people from surrendering their pets, but I can't help think that probably contributes a lot towards the abandonment of animals. Sad.

That's ridiculous. What do they charge to adopt a pet?

Adoption Fees

Cats and Kittens $125
Dogs (6 months and up) $260
Puppies (under 6 months) $350
Barn Friends - Goats, Pigs, Sheep $150
Horses (rideable) $500
Horses (pasture pals) $350
Rabbits $100

What does your adoption fee help cover? All our feline and canine friends are spayed/neutered, microchipped, have age appropriate vaccinations, have been dewormed, given flea preventative, our cats are tested for FELV/FIV, our dogs are heartworm tested and of course they have been lovingly cared for by our amazing staff at our facility, all of this cost money. So, you can see our adoption fees don't even begin to cover everything we do to get your new beloved family member ready for you.

I can confirm, it was not an elaborate scheme to unload a non house trained dog on an unsuspecting good samaritan. Hank's people picked him up this morning. No more sneaky turds on the carpet.

Our local volunteer fire department does a Christmas Eve caravan every year, slowly driving Santa Claus around fire trucks every street in their fire district with lights/sirens and giving out candy canes.

The mortal enemy of our OCD psycho dog is the garbage truck. In his furry little head, a fire truck is just a garbage truck that howls. Since we live on a dead-end road, he had plenty of time to get outside and prepare to meet his howling nemesis as they were turning around.

After the last of the trucks had passed on their way out and he stopped howling along with them, he made a bee line to the spot on our front lawn where the arson dog took a leak last spring on the day when the neighbor's house burned down. It's been 6+ months now, but he still is OCD enough to remember that dog disrespecting his kingdom the last time that the howling fire trucks appeared.....

He's OCD! When he gets into The Mighty Dodge, he still to this day immediately stares at the ceiling where my watch made a reflection spot from the sun back in 2013 when we were on a road trip.

Yesterday was interesting. The only thing more important to him than my DW is his grandma. Many times when the in-laws come to visit, they go directly to our basement and start tinkering with things. When OCD psycho dog heard the boiler installers working in the basement yesterday, he immediately assumed that grandma was hiding from him and went into full knucklehead mode with his ear-piercing grandma yip trying to get her attention! Taking him outside to look into the basement and see that grandma wasn't there did not calm him down.

I brought him back inside, and did a video call to my in-laws so that grandma could calm him down. It took him a few minutes to catch on, but he finally realized that she wasn't at our house. He then picked up his special grandma fetch ball, so that he could play a game of remote fetch while I held the phone and threw the ball. He didn't go knucklehead for the rest of the day, and ignored the boiler installers after that.....
