Sonja, I just love the Woman that you are because you seem to be so incredibly authentic. You show your strengths, weaknesses, vulnerabilities and although you try your best remain composed when obviously insulted, you eventaully say what needs to be said - remaining TRUE TO YOURSELF! <3 Love you for that! I just want you to know that when it comes to dogs, my children, there is NO STOPPING ME. I have been homeless for four months now living in a tent in Quakertown, PA because I ABSOLUTELY REFUSE TO GIVE UP MY GIRLS!! I have a 14yr old German Shepard and a 7yr old Rhodesian Ridgeback that I rescued from a shelter the day they were going to walk her down the hall to go nitey. I am an intellegent, creative. loving, compasionate person (whose freakin keyboard keeps sticking cuz I live in a tent LOL) who refuses to fall into the scope of what OTHERS think I should be doing. Screw them! Let them give up their children to prove a point and I STILL WOULD'T GIVE UP MY GIRLS!! My only heartbreak is that my 14yr old may pass away while being homeless and that simply isn't fair to her but in my heart I know she wouldn't want to be anywhere else but with her Mommy. She would wither away and die from depression without me. So you tell them all to go take their actual children for a damn walk before they start "pissing" on you for caring more about the unconditional love you have for your pet. Thanks for listening and I'm sorry if I sounded harsh but that's what in my heart!
