David offered to pay the adopter's adoption fee for another dog, plus a donation to the rescue. That wasn't good enough. A volunteer driver called him and David left a moment ago with Doug. It's strange, Doug has never turned down a ride in the car. But when David called 'C'mon Doug!", he ran upstairs to me and jumped into my lap.
I'm devastated. Heartbroken and my eyes red and puffy from crying.
To add insult to injury, I received the following email from a board member of the rescue pertaining to the blog post I wrote about yesterday. Again, I'm not verifying the name of the rescue, nor the writer:
Beth I have to say that I am totally disgusted with your behaviour. How dare you manipulate the situation to make yourself look like a victim. I know that you are a very passionate and opinionated woman, but your selfishness in trying to make yourself look good is just hurting rescue in general. What you are doing is slander and you know it. You do not have any proof of your intention to adopt and are twisting the situation around.
Perhaps you should mention in your post that you don't have the proof existence of such email exists so it is a more accurate portrayal of the situation. You seem to have every other email about Doug except the one we have asked for.
I did warn T*** and K*** that you would be a high maintenance foster home, but I never dreamed that it would result in this. Perhaps I should have realized that you publicly bash everybody and everything when you do not get your own way and should have expected something like this from you.
It's absolutely true. There is an email "out there" that I no longer have and they said they never received that casually stated our intent to adopt Doug. They knew I wanted him. Why didn't they call me to find out for sure? They're ALL (or were) "friends" with me on Facebook. They knew how I felt about him.
This isn't a sale at Wal-Mart. The well-being of the animal shouldn't be first come first serve.
No, I'm not a victim at all. Doug is the victim. I can still feel his slobber drying on my cheek as I type this.
