File this under: what. the. fuck.
Some heartless, unpatriotic bitch just did what might be considered the worst thing anyone could ever do. She sold her boyfriend’s dog while he was away at war. Yes, you read that correctly.
The woman in question–who is anonymous, because she knows people would probably stone her if they found out her identity–decided for some reason or another that though her boyfriend was away at war, it would be totally acceptable to sell his dog (without his permission) on Craigslist. Of course, because the dog is fucking adorable, a family scooped up the three-year-old Shiba Inu and now they won’t give it back. Again, yes, you read that correctly.
I have a lot of things to say about this whole situation.
Seriously though, how dare you? And by “you,” I mean everyone in this situation. Where the fuck does this girl get off selling her boyfriend’s dog? I’ve known a lot of heartless bitches in my day, but this one seems to really take the cake. How do you even explain that? Like, “Hey, honey! Thanks for calling and letting me know you’re alive. I had a busy day today: went to work, picked up some dry cleaning, sold your dog…” I don’t get it.
Luckily, the soldier’s mom tracked down the new owners of the dog…only to find out that they don’t want to give it back because it might upset their kids. I can’t even with people these days. And before I start on a tirade of what little wusses children are today and how participation trophies are bullshit and that this whole anti-vaccination movement is complete and utter insanity, I’ll just say this: sometimes life is hard and children need to know this. Does it suck that these kids probably love this dog and now need to give it back? Yes. But is it the right thing to do? Yes.
This whole situation is so unbelievably absurd that it quite frankly has left me in a really shitty mood. What it comes down to is that everyone in this situation needs to buck up, get over themselves, and give the damn dog back to the man who is currently risking his life to protect us. Sorry. I thought this was America.
