People who sell puppies and then never have a care about how they are doing? When I raised Dave and his siblings, I felt a bond with all of them, and even if I hadn't hand fed them from 2 weeks, I would still care about them now that they are nearly 4. I regularly think about the one who's owner never kept in touch (she didn't do mobile or internet) and Pixie who landed up in rescue after my ex friend gave up on her dogs. Today while out getting a few christmas presents we drove past the guy who has Xiva mum and brother (and I'm sorry I've never said this about a dog before... but he is Odd looking! ), and made me think about how they just seem to act as if Hector didn't have a sister. They stopped texting me back after a while, before Xiva turned one anyay. I went round one day and they were clearly in, I could hear the dogs barking (he takes them out with him), and would have looked out to see who it was when I left. Even if he had lost that phone.. I emailed a load of pics to his girlfriends email address, one which was replied to asking for some up to date ones. I didn't think emailing/texting to inform them of what happened was appropriate since they seemed to stop caring. How can you just carry on life regardless and not know how something you bred and raised is doing? I even feel a connection to any foster dogs I have had (well, the ones I had for any lenght of time anyway), and hate thinking of not knowing how they are doing. Is it just me being overly caring... or do some people just not care enough?
