Y’all know by now that Mom is at Mickey World with my sister’s family right now. A good time is not being had by anyone from what I can tell. But it’s about to get worse possibly, a whole fucking lot worse.
My idiot brother in law decided earlier this year to adopt a Shih-Tzu puppy, a very high strung and not well behaved one. We had a Shih-Tzu growing up and she was a sweet dog, but my folks took the time to train her to behave. My sister, lazy bitch that she is, couldn’t be bothered to go with for the highly recommended obedience classes.
The dog, aptly named Dora, has zero manners because no one has taught her any. She also likes to wiggle out from under the fence and go exploring. Mom isn’t sure if she ended up at the shelter because she ran away from home or was dumped.
So before they all left on vacation my brother in law took Dora to the kennel, well, that’s what he told the kids. He actually took her back to the shelter and surrendered her. His genius plan was to tell the girls that Dora had escaped while at the kennel and they couldn’t find her.
Except the girls have made wishes at every fucking fountain they’ve come across that Dora will learn to behave and tonight they gave her top billing in their bedtime prayers.
Which is what prompted my sister to send me a text insisting that I go to the shelter tomorrow and rescue the dog that I was pretty fucking sure she wanted nothing to do with.
I checked the website for the shelter and she’s not listed there, though since dipshit surrendered her on Friday they might not be done processing her yet. But it could mean that someone has already adopted her. Or, and I shudder to think this, it could mean that when they did their evaluation stuff they decided that she isn’t trainable and isn’t fit for human companionship.
I don’t know and I’d prefer not to think about it.
Evidently my brother in law will be calling in the morning to see if he can find anything out. I don’t feel bad for him or my sister one bit. My nieces are kind little souls and this will almost certainly shatter their trust in their parents.
And I’m not at all excited about my sister thinking that she can be her usual abusive self to everyone and I’ll just do her bidding. Fuck. That. Shit.
