Last week I decided I couldn’t take any more. The Akita had made a mess of my backyard AND my garage. I told my son that she had to go. He was hoping I would wait until after Spring Break. No way. The dog had to leave. The only reason he had kept it was because his girlfriend really liked it. Too bad. It wasn’t staying at my house any longer. Lucky for me, he broke up with her last week and took the dog back to where it came from this past Monday. Thank goodness! Now, my dogs are, once again, able to stay in the backyard and I no longer have to worry about it tearing anything else up. Bad news…my son hasn’t learned much from being burned by this girl over and over. He took her back. I’m sad to say that I guess it wasn’t enough that she got into a drunken stupor and cheated on him with someone she doesn’t know. I don’t care how lonely you get, no one is worth that. I’m hoping he’ll learn that one of these days.
