As I so often say here, I CANNOT make this stuff up; I just can't. Emanon found this and shared it with us on Mancoat; I am sharing it with the larger world. In this story, we read about a man who got reunited with a dog he'd lost ten years before-in a divorce. Here goes...
Man reunited with dog after 10 years apart
Shortly after his pet boxer passed away, New Hampshire man Jamie Carpentier wasn't looking to take on another dog. He went online anyway—who doesn't like to browse?—and looked at pictures on the Humane Society of Greater Nashua website. But then he saw a familiar face: his old basset hound, Ginger.
Ten years ago, Carpentier's ex-wife got Ginger in the divorce. But, according to CBS Boston, she gave up Ginger a short time later.
Note what it says guys: Mr. Carpentier's bitch ex wife gave up the dog a SHORT TIME AFTER the divorce! She didn't want the dog-not at all; she only wanted it because Mr. Carpentier wanted the dog, so she took Ginger out of spite. Aren't women wonderful? Isn't divorce wonderful?
I don't know what the policies of the shelter are where the former Mrs. Carpentier surrendered the dog; I don't know if it's a no-kill shelter like we have in my area. It's rather telling about Mrs. Carpentier in particular, and women in general, that she would: 1) take the dog she didn't want in a divorce; 2) potentially put the dog's life in JEOPARDY; 3) and did so all to spite her ex-husband. For those of you thinking about getting married, think about THAT before walking down The Aisle of Doom!
The dog was adopted, but 10 years later had become too much work for her elderly owner. (From the looks of this face, it's hard to imagine Ginger giving anybody much trouble.) The owner surrendered Ginger to the Humane Society—and Carpentier happened to log on to the right site at the right time.
At least Ginger found a loving home after the divorce. I don't think Ginger gave her elderly owner too much trouble, either; Basset hounds are mellow, easy going dogs. I think that the elderly owner's health had failed to the point where he/she could no longer take care of the dog; for example, the elderly owner had lost the ability to walk, so he/she couldn't take the dog out for the walks it needs. In that case, putting Ginger up for adoption was the right thing to do-especially since she was reunited with her original owner!
He spoke with Boston's WCVB-TV about the unexpected reunion. "She seemed like she knew it was me," Carpentier said about picking up his old/new dog. "It was me and my father who were there, and she just ... she just recognized us." He wasn't planning on taking another dog, but come on. How could anybody say no to this face?
How could anyone say 'no' to that face, indeed? Ginger looks like a sweet dog; she gives off a good vibe even in the picture. That begs and obvious question: how could Mrs. Carpentier say 'no' to that face? How could Mrs. Carpentier take Ginger from her loving owner, Mr. Carpentier? How could Mrs. Carpentier endanger the dog's life as she did, hmmm?
"She was stuck to me like glue. It was awesome,” Carpentier told the Nashua Telegraph after seeing her again "I have her now, and she has a place to live and stay,” he said. “The end. It’s awesome.”
All's well that ends well. Now what would REALLY be a good ending is if his bitch ex-wife were to end up homeless, broke, and in failing health-ha! We can only hope...
Fellas, what you have just read is indicative of women and their natures. Mrs. Carpentier didn't let Mr. Carpentier keep the dog he loved and who loved him-oh, no. No, she spitefully TOOK the dog so he couldn't have it! We know this because she surrendered the dog for adoption a short time after the divorce; rather than letting Mr. Carpentier have the dog back, she took it. Again, it's rather telling.
What to do, Fellas? Stay happy, single, and free, of course! That way, if you have a dog, cat, or other pet you love, you won't lose it to a spiteful, vengeful woman who cares nothing about you or your pet. Until next time...
