    he had been in the warehouse for maybe 3 days, but had been seen around the area for maybe 3-4 weeks, according to some of the staff.

    sheesh...... i suppose you see all types here coming and going, i'm sorry you managed to make me seem like one of the worst, instead of maybe asking me about that first..

    'zen has already stated she can not afford to vaccinate, chip or desex the dog just yet' did you also see where i said it was payday on tuesday?


    and then all the rest...


    i came in now to update.. i am not a bad person, not a selfish moron either.. i am genuinly concerned about this poor little dog is all.. and going through my own personal hell trying to think of what is best when i have, quite frankly, fallen for the wee beastie, and so has my husband, who would have kept him regardless if i had not tried to find an owner. he is not pleased with me i might say, even tho he surely realises i have done the right thing in looking for an owner.

    i came here for advice on dealing with this dog while i had him in my care, i was not underhanded in telling how i came about this dog, nor did i try to hide my inexperience with dogs, or my ignorance about how this stuff all works, or how my emotions were involved. i may have been a little too quick to just want to keep this lovely dog, but can you really blame me for that? seems some ppl might just be a little too quick to judge a complete stranger some times.

    but briefly, so everyone has closure.. after talking to an extremely nice woman at the dog and cat home, and also with the (maybe) owner, my husband is taking the little fellow to the home tomorrow morning. arrangements have been made so he can drop (Nelson) at the vet in front, as they are open earlier than the home, so my guy can drop him off before his busy day. this will make it easier for the owner's partner to see him. also will allow the home to go through the procedures to find another owner if this is not their dog. if not claimed, we can have him back of course.

    i seem to have made mistakes in telling of how i felt about all this while it all unfolded. i have learned from this, i will probably never be so open about anything here again. if we manage to claim this little dog back again, or if we decide to adopt another, i am sure there are other forums, or other sites, where i might find the advice and knowledge i will need without this sort of judgement.

    think about it please.. help people, don't just jump to conclusions about them.

    Although we may be being quite blunt about the situation we really are trying to help you Zen.....

    No-one jumped to any conclusions at all.

    I have offered advice and support all along in almost every post. I think you are over reacting and trying to make everyone feel bad, particularly me, because we gave you upfront and honest advice.

    It seems you are only happy when you hear the answers you want to hear.

    An optimist sees the glass as half full;
    A realist just finishes the damn thing and refills it.

    Doing the right thing despite our feelings should be applauded as you have now done this. I hope all turns out the right way for the dog, that proper processes are now done by the organisations involved and if he returns to you then you can rest easily that you have done it all the right way. I feel all did help you, advising on the ways things should be done (as you have now done) You did however not want to do this as you wanted to keep the dog despite that it may have an anguished owner out there.

    I am not being patronising when I say good on you, in a situation that would honestly be hard for me too, any of us I think in a situation of becoming attached so soon.

    This about sums up what I am thinking as well, Zen.

    I did not jump to conclusions. I did not judge. I offered you support along the way whichever ending this scenario has. I advised you to put ads in papers and if possible organise a door knock etc, along with any other ideas that came to mind.

    If your comments above are designed to make me feel bad, then they failed. I do not believe I have said anything here which can be taken or construed in any way other than helpful and honest advice.

    If you see fit to to offer me your negative opinion of how I and others dealt with this, you have that right. I do point out to you however, that this is a forum where all members give their opinions and try to help those with a problem, worry or scenario. If you don't like those opinions, don't take them on board - but do not throw them back at ppl as you have done, please.

    Nobody here has made you out to be a bad owner or person. In fact, it has been to the contrary. So IMO if you feel like that, it is your problem and is entirely unfair to put that on other ppl.
