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!
