My boyfriend paid the shelter adoption fee for a baby Rottweiler for me I posted all about it on my Facebook...instead I got inundated with "Don't you have enough animals?" The shelter came for a home inspection and complimented us on how beautiful, healthy, and friendly my dogs and birds were. We spend money we sometimes don't even immediately have to make sure these babies have everything they need health-wise. They radiate with health and I am comfortable having them around even total strangers because they are sweet and social. All 5 of the dogs will be shelter/rescues...whether from an unplanned litter or survivors of severe abuse and abandonment. I have gotten irritated by that remark for years...I shouldn't let it get to me...but I don't go around telling people with a lot of kids "Oh, gee, don't you think you have enough kids?" or anything like that. It just got my panties in a bunch. Does anyone have people criticizing them over their animals?
