I adopted Mickey from an animal shelter in January. She is a terrier mix, when we got her she was only 6 weeks old. Our family just fell in love with her, or at least I did. It is now August and my mom told me that she couldn't take it anymore...the mess, activeness, not being potty trained and etc. She kept saying she's tired of Mickey tearing up stuff she's not suppose to. I tried the hardest to convince my mom to please not give her away. But there was just no way...after a week later the time came. We all drove to the animal shelter and gave her up for adoption. It was the hardest week OF MY LIFE. I didn't realize how hard it was. My heart felt like it literally broke in half, I was and am still crying non-stop. It just drives me INSANE how she isn't in my life anymore and never will again. I just hate it. I HATE my mom, I hate coming home because my house is not the same! It is so different, and without her I just can't function right...the fact that she's still at the shelter, probably wondering what happened to herself and why she's there...it just makes me want to jump off a bridge. I hate it I hate it I hate it. If I was old enough I would move out and adopt her. I don't think I'll ever stop crying. I don't think I'll ever get her off my mind. I love her to death and she means EVERYTHINGto me. I miss everything about her...her hyper personality, smell, look...just her. I would do anything and I mean anything to somehow get her back...I hate my life. I've been praying. I have been out of the house as much as possible to get the thought off my mind. I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO. I need help! Much prayers needed...you don't realize what you have until it's gone...I'm sick and tired of holding back the tears and faking my smile. I don't want to do this anymore.

I gave my dog away today. I feel the exact same way. I had my dog for four years and I don't think I can come home anymore without crying, it's just so hard to lose something you held dear too and put love into something only to have him taken away from you. I don't think I can take it any more, it's just so hard. I know exactly how you feel.

I'm so sorry for your loss. That would be hard to be so out of control in that situation. Did anyone try taking her to obedient training? Or sometimes just walking a dog everyday for 40 minutes works out their energy enough that they don't want to chew on things. I think your mom should've tried those things, or have the family pitch in and do them, before resorting to giving her away. I hope she tried.
