I was flamed to death over being the first person to call out a certain bumpie over her dog attack. I felt something was way off and I felt pretty sure no rational person would keep a dog that had "mauled" their child.
I was also attacked for sharing my story about a dog we rescued from a dog fighting ring. We kept him for 5 years, even after we were told from at least 50 trainers he should be put down. Keeping him severly altered our lives. We had to put off having children, spend thousands of dollars reinforcing our yard and home and were never able to have guests over. Very little when you realize we loved him and wanted to give him something of a life.
This was a dog that had to wear a cage muzzle 100% of the time (like Hannibal Lector). He was 150 lbs when he was sick with cancer towards the end of his life. At his prime he was 200 lbs plus. When I got pregnant by accident the choice was abort the baby and maybe let Kai live another year or put him down and keep the baby. Even when sick he was not able to be around anyone (ie, we would still actually eat through walls) and I was not going to take the chance.
I was flamed for chossing my baby over my dog. I am still heartsick over putting him down but I know I made the right choice. Maybe I didn't express myself well but I really was shocked that not everyone was thinking the choice that bumpie made by keeping the dog in the house was crazy and irresponsible. Now I hear she is most likely just plain crazy. What type of person makes up a story like that? Sick, and I worry about what type of mother would fantasize online about horrific injuries to her child?
My gut was right. That is all.
Oh and I used to post under mrsolsen2000 but deleted my account when this all happened because I was finished with the bump lol! I really like this site but all this crazy made up stuff makes my head spin!
