What is your opinion on this email?

YES this is an actually emailed I received.. swear on my puppies.


I have a Jack Russell Terrier, Cody, who will soon be three years old. Altho, this is a breed I have had for many years, my significant other is not used to it. Today, he told me Cody is causing him to have a lot of stress and I should get rid of him.
Cody is a very good dog and has learned very quickly, the simple commands such as, sit and lay down. Understands quite a few word phrases, such as: bye-bye, treat, crate (which he really doesn't like, but I tell him time-out and its okay for a little while), popcorn (his favorite), and a few I don't remember right now.
Cody hasn't been introduced to young children, so I would probably recommend a home with older children. He's a lovable, fun and devoted dog and he would make someone an excellent pet. He's a typical JRT, an excitable barker.
This is very difficult to send to you and I really, really wish I didn't have to, but I don't know what else to do. Can you help me find him a good home? I'm more than willing to keep him until you do.

Thank you in advance. I look forward to hearing from you

My response to her and what I really wanted to say were WAY different.. LOL!!

She needs to really consider which one she should keep. She'd probably be much better off with Cody.

I would say get rid of the boyfriend - not the dog. She's making the wrong decision here. What's he going to start telling her next...?

Get rid of the boyfriend. What's the next thing that will cause him "stress"? And forget about kids!

Doug said...

well, I think you should take the dog because, quite frankly, it does not look like she is fit to take care of it!!! When you take a dog that loves you and throw it away for another person, you don't deserve it.
Take the dog when you can, before the bf beats it, and give it a loving home!

Oh Good Lord DUMP the boyfriend lmao Boys come and go and any person who gets stressed by a dog lol isnt worth the time and effort it will take to train him properly! Has she even thought that when she wises up and realizes the boy isnt worth her time that she cant get Cody back? I am seriously annoyed by people like this. If she really loved Cody this email would have never even been sent. Maybe Cody is better off with someone who isnt so wishy washy in her feelings.

This reminds me of my "ex-husband". When I was first married, I wanted to get a dog. I was told I couldn't have one. I saw and ad for "free puppies" and said I was going to pick one up after work. He said there better not be a dog there when he got home. I suggested he not come home.

The marriage from hell lasted 3 yrs. Spanky passed away at 13....Dump the guy!!!

I have a jack russell named Cody, funny huh....also a golden who's owner told her after they got married, I don't want that dog, it's her or me, well now I have her she has a great life and my Cody...if my husband told me to get rid of him, SORRY...I would go get another...only very weak women let a man tell her what to do...this is the 2000's wake up now or you'll pay for it later...

For heaven's sake...this gal is an embarrassment to ALL women.

Dump the guy! (Next, it'll be the kids that stress the s.o.b.)

I actually feel sorry for the lady. A person so desperate for the approval of a current "significant other" that they will not stand up and protect the things that count most in their life is a person who is underestimating their own value. If she won't take a stand on this, what WILL she take a stand on? In my work I see moms who let "significant others" bully (and worse) their children because they fear being alone above all else.
I recommend (1) keep Cody,(2)end the relationship (3) enter counseling to recognize own worth, strength, and power to be happy (even without a poor excuse for a significant other!)
