In a million years and for all the tea in China I would never give my baby up! If I was incapacitated, I might as well be a goner without a dog by my side. I'd need to have someone in house care for my dog. I always recommend folks have a trust. But smile, you have tons of life in you, Ms. Yvonne, and miles to go before you sleep!


I totally agree with you! I cant imagine giving my dog or cat away to a shelter. Like you If I had to give them up for whatever reason, I would look to family and friends. These animals have feelings and think about how scared they would be in a cage and taken out of their safe environment. I think it would be devasting to the animal. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.


Interesting post and I agree with you, I would never give up one of my pets. A few years ago, we adopted a pet through a local rescue. Turns out she was a service dog that was turned in because she was too old to provide service any longer! I could never understand that. She was a wonderful dog and we were happy to have her for a good 3 years before she passed from bone cancer. While I don't understand how someone could have given her up, I'm glad she had us to care for her and keep her comfortable during her final months.
