k2bdeutmeyer Posted December 23, 2011 Share Posted December 23, 2011 (edited) So, we have a small dog that we love, but he is VERY attached to DD 11yr. DD 4yr is heartbroken that he won't ever sit or cuddle with her, and instead prefers me or DD 11yr. A good friend of mine one day mentioned that her mom & step dad had a 1yr old Morkie (Yorkie & Maltese mix) that they wanted to get rid of for free. I talked to DH and we decided it would be the PERFECT birthday gift for DD 4yr. Her birthday is January 13th and this would be an essentially free gift that would be the hit of the year. He already has all his shots, is potty trained, etc. I couldn't have asked for things to work out better. Finances are pretty ugly right now (as many of you know) and this was just the perfect solution. We've been brainstorming names for weeks (without DD's knowledge of course). We told DD 11yr, so she's been getting excited and helping us think of names. Well, my friend called me last night to tell me that she didn't talk to her mom for approximately 2 weeks (this is not unusual, as she and her mom do not have a good relationship). Her mom somehow took that to mean that we did not want the dog after all and offered it to my friend's niece. When my friend called her on it and told her that she couldn't do that to my DD, she decided to not give it to anybody and just keep him. So, now I am not only devastated that we aren't getting the dog I had already begun to fall in love with, but I'm out a birthday gift for DD. I'm just so, so sad. ::Stomps feet and screams "It's just not fair!!:: Edited December 23, 2011 by k2bdeutmeyer Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
