Omg, don't think you are overreacting at all. How can she just leave her dog behind? I would rather not move than having to give up Rocky! And honestly, the strict quarantine rules are just an excuse for her. I am travelling to Germany once a year and getting back into the UK is expensive and not easy (having had blood test done, can't get back by airplane, etc.) but if you love your dog you will happily do all those things. I couldn't imagine someone giving up their dog so easily because of that and then already looking for a replacement. She surely doesn't deserve to have a dog at all.

I can totally understand you getting mad. I would. And as much as you will try, you can't always understand everyone and I think you don't have to either.

I find it helps to try to think the best of people, even ones you don't understand. If the lady doesn't want to take her dog to Japan, well, maybe the new home he'll be placed in will be perfect, well-chosen and best for everyone.

Jumping to conclusions, and reading someone's entire character from stuff they write on the Internet is something I try really hard not to do, because you never get the whole story, you know?

It has nothing to do with you being a bad person. You would be a bad person, in my opinion, if you voiced to her that you think she is an idiot, but you told her politely. Its not your fault if she thinks her poor pup is a spare part that you can replace. Some people just do not get it.

It is impossible to ignore things when you are a person who cares about things and can see the bigger picture. You can politely tell people your opinion, but if it is in your character to be a person who does not see things with nonchalance and indifference, you will find yourself frequently being annoyed.

In this particular case you are NOT overreacting. I can't believe she did not fight to bring her pup with her and just wanted to get another one. Good for you for regaining your composure!

Did you see this?

10News - Local Navy family's dog stranded: Airline says dog's kennel was too big to load on plane - News Story

SAN DIEGO - There is anger and frustration Wednesday evening for a local Navy family shipped overseas and forced to leave a family pet behind.

"All I want is my dog back," said Hospital Corpsman First Class John Gromer.

Gromer has been without his dog Gunner since Nov. 29. That was the day he and his family were relocated to Japan by the Navy. One-year-old Gunner was forced to stay behind and is being cared for by a family friend in San Diego.

"I had to walk away in the airport, leaving my dog basically stranded and alone in the airport so I could make my flight," said Gromer.

American Airlines told the Gromer family Gunner's kennel was two inches too big to load onto the plane.

Gromer, who is a veteran of wars in both Iraq and Afghanistan, told 10News to make matters worse, the ticket agent was rude.

"You know, they look at my kid crying and she yells the attendant yells across the airport and says, 'Sir, your dog can't go now. Get him off my scale,'" he said.

After repeated requests on Wednesday for comment, American Airlines responded to 10News in an email, which read, "We have received the email you sent to our general media relations mailbox. This email box is checked several times a day so someone will get back to you."

Late Wednesday evening, 10News still had not heard from the airline. Gromer himself has tried to five times to get some answers from American Airlines, and he also has not heard back.

He has only been told it will cost nearly $4,000 to fly Gunner to Okinawa on a cargo plane, which is way above the original fee of $175.

Gromer says that is unfair.

"I don't like being disrespected," he said. "I don't like my family being disrespected."

Gromer said the kennel he brought to the airport was large because guidelines on the airline's website suggest that the dog have enough room in the crate to be comfortable. He said he was just trying to comply.
