Comment on Rehoming a pet: How to cope with the grief by Amy.
I’m going through the exact same situation. My 75 year old mother decided she wanted two dogs and got a Golden Retriever and a Boxer mix as puppies. I warned her previously that this was not a good idea and that the dogs would be very large and hard to handle. She had them for about nine months and decided it was too much. During that time, I bonded with them and loved them. She eventually found a person that was willing to rehome them, and I had to say goodbye to them today. My heart is broken and I can’t stop crying! I am also so pissed off at my mother for creating this situation and her attitude toward the whole thing.
