A: Double right. Dog Lady hears you and seconds that emotion. And, speaking of emotions, the fellow who gave you the dog was making an out-of-the-park play for yours. Alas, shocking someone with a hairy heap of responsibility — no matter how cute — is a bad break for the recipient, the hapless critter caught in the middle, and the giver. You may learn to love the dog; unfortunately, the guy not so much. This extravagant gesture seems to have sunk his chances.
People, remember, you should never give anyone a dog — unless you are totally prepared and eager to take care of the dog yourself.
Look for the “Ask Dog Lady” Facebook fan page.
