I am so sick to my stomach that I threw up crying last night. I am worried and deeply miss Gucci my daughters dog that I helped raise and got extremely attached to. My daughter and I don't get along very well so she often uses the dog a way to hurt me. About a week ago my daughter left for Norway to stay with some family friends. I helped her buy the ticket forfieting my summer and had spent a week making the arrangements for her. We don't get along and I only did this hoping that she could get a chance to be away from her abusive boyfried who lives with us too. (yes its been a disfuntional year) Before she left I asked her if I could take care of Gucci and I remember her saying yes! When the boyfriend went to work he took Gucci and locked her in the car for 10 hours while I was at home and was expecting to watch her for a month. I was so upset I confronted the boyfriend and I guess he called my daughter in NOrway and now she turned against me. I guess she had left instructions with my exhusband about the care of the dog? She said she never gave me permission to watch her dog. She is in NOrway threatening to kill herself because I am "ruining her life" and obsessed with her dog and better leave her boyfriend alone. I got so mad I told the boyfriend if he didn't leave the dog here when he went to work that he would have to move out. Well he did. Yesterday he packed up some stuff and took Gucci.. When Gucci saw him comming to get her, she ran and jumped on the couch to hide from him and growled when he picked her up. I am so sick to think of this poor little dog having to pay the price for my daughters ASSHOLE boyfriend. She is blind by love. He even had physically abused her before she left. When he found out she was going to Norway he threw a cigarette lighter at her face (he claims he didn't aim it) she had a cut above her eye and a broken blood vessel in the white of her eye. I am so sick because even though my daughter and I don't get along, I love her so much and want a relationshiopwith her and have been trying for years. Yes I am obsessed with her dog and she knows it and uses a weapon. Her dog prefers me and maybe she resents that? I thought about calling the SPCA to report a dog in the car, but this might make it worse in the long run for Gucci. It seems like everytime I try to advocate for the dog it gets worse and worse. I am afraid for the dogs welfare and happiness and also for my daughter throwing her life away on this boyfriend. I only let them move in because his mother had kicked them out and they were homeless. I thought it would be temporary, but they couldn't find jobs and it is so expensive around here. Now EVERYONE is upset at me.. The norweigens have her crying on their shoulders while she says I ruined her trip. The only advise I am getting is not very emphatic. They say , let go it is NOT your dog. I feel shafted for buying her that ticket and helping her to emotionally abuse her dog and most of all me her mother.
Any words of wisdom?
