  1. Fckin kids. Huskys aren't bad. They're smart and easy to train and best yet, you'd have a running partner!

    As long as they're safe, go get that sushi. Enjoy the alone time with the wifey while you got it.

  2. You definitely used that stress to feed that strong workout!! I hope you decided to go ahead and treat yourself and the wife to some sushi! You definitely deserve it! Good luck with the kids/dog! I would've exploded!!

    Kids: it's always hard handling these type situations. The 19 year old should know better.
    It's one of those situations where all you can do is sit them down and explain all the responsibility that goes into owning a dog. Grooming, feeding, walking, shots, etc and all that cost time and money. And for a long time, 10-20 years on average. Are they going to take all that responsibility for the next 20 years? lol

    They will get over it.
    Thanks, thanks to everyone... the support everyone gives on this forum is simply great - even when we aren't just dealing with workouts!

    Man, I'd feel the same as you. Dunno what your reasons were for not having a dog, but it doesn't really matter. They knew that it was not ok and did it anyway.

    They'll be back. At least, the daughter will. I guess the 19 can choose not to.

    Kids...
    Still not back... but I got a text from my son saying that he is dealing with it and they will be back.. I am just worried is all.

    I would love one to be honest... My wife on the other hand simply doesn't like dogs. And it is a huge responsibility as Turff said. But ya running with a dog would be pretty awesome. The biggest factor though is the way they went about it. They don't pay the bills, etc so it certainly is not their decision to make.

    I did explode, which is probably why they left....


    And we did go out for Sushi, and I am glad we did. We were able to talk about others things, and well sushi rocks!

    Kids, we all did "stupid" things at that age. At least it's just a dog and we aren't talking heroin or crack. Always find the positive in any situation!

    This is true. In the end my daughter (who is the biggest player in this) just wants something to love/have all her own. But she went about it the wrong way.

    Not a good day today, or last night for that matter. My kids (16/19) decided yesterday (after we have said all along, for various reasons we can't have a dog) to go out and buy a Husky. They actually sent me a text on my way home from work to inform me what they had done and that they hoped my wife and I could come to terms with it. I says pardon????? actually more like wtf...

    I was shocked and told them the dog can't stay and that they need to return it etc... They packed the dog up and well I haven't seen them since, as they said if the dog has to go they are too. I am at a total loss. I don't understand how at times they feel they have the right to do whatever they please. The teenage brain seems to be so selfish more often than not. The strange thing is this is so out of character for them, especially my daughter.

    My wife and I had planned on going out for Sushi this evening. I am having a very hard time with all this, and am not sure I should go out... although might do me some good to get my mind of things for a bit. I know where they are, and they are safe, but this is just ridiculous.

    I found the only way to cope today was to run and workout... took longer than normal but at least it helped a little.

I know some of you have served, and have sons/daughters actively serving - be proud.

    They have made their way to there Mothers... if you 'my story' that is the worse thing that can happen as she is just a nightmare. But ya I think they are hoping I will say come home, we'll try the dog. But now we are talking 3 days of missed school for her, 3 days of missed college for him, and I am just getting pissed off now.
