Ellen and her former dog

I found this piece on the Ellen-dog controversy:

http://www.avclub.com/content/hater/your_guide_to_the_ellen_dog

It's a bit better than the average - mainly the comments. The post itself isn't clear enough on what happened but it's still pretty funny.

I'm on the side of the shelter. If the hairdresser wants that dog why can't she go to the shelter to request adoption? Perhaps I missed something? And yeah, Ellen signed that contract. What does she have to cry about?

What's bugging me is that so many people say the shelters do too much checking. They actually try to find out if you can provide a suitable home for the animal. Oh, the horror!

Turns out Iggy wasn't supposed to go to a family with children. He's not necessarily child-friendly. On top of that, Ellen taped those pieces a day before they aired. She deliberately smeared the adoption group. But the adoption group is not perfect either. They gave Iggy to Ellen without neutering him first. There are other issues on top of all this. The whole story is confusing and strange.

Ultimately, I side with the adoption agency because I think it's more important for people to treat pet parenting the same as they would treat human parenting. If you adopt a child and things don't work out you can't just give the kid to your friend. It has to be more serious than that.

I think maybe people who love dogs more than humans are a bit broken; but then who isn't? It just shows in different ways in different people. Some people need to love animals more than they love humans, the animals need broken people. :-)
