I'm just envisioning wife's ex-husband getting to his apartment door, and hearing whimpering on the other side of the door.....LOL....

Quick question... Are you ever going to just let these kids have their own life, or do they have a duty to fulfill yours?

Quick answer: If you lived in a small 2 BR apartment and had your 20yo kid with a full schedule between work and college bring home a puppy that will grow to be 80# with no experience training a big dog, without the landlord's permission, would you be happy? I think the dog will be the victim in this situation....

That’s also not your circus, not your monkey.... not your problem.

You rake all over the kids that are being self-sufficient, along with the ones that aren't? Time to find a new hobby dude.

No real updates. Picnic there next Saturday with guests from out of state and as of last Sunday they had a gas grill outside, and a $4,000 couch inside. That's it. Oh, they have TWO dogs as of Wednesday. Cute Maltese mixes they got at a rescue. Briar and tick magnets, IMO, but not my dogs not my circus...I think I'm paraphrasing someone from above. Step Daughter's father was initially through the roof with her puppy acquisition, but he finally caved and allowed her to keep her. She never has owned a dog that big (I think dog will be about 75-80 pounds. Girl isn't 100 pounds soaking wet). Only real issue is stepson picked Saturday for the picnic, knowing that his mom works every Saturday until about 1pm. So I will need to bring her to work for 8am, drive back home, install the hitch haul, strap down my Weber grill, load charcoal, prep ribs (was volunteered to cook ribs, yay. Making some today in fact), load my dog, then pick up wife from work and hopefully get to their house by 2 so I can set up and start the ribs.

Since when is a Maltese 75 pounds? What on earth is it mixed with?

Sounds like the makings of a good time on Saturday... Let it be.

maybe he's still recovering from the good times, but I'm betting we get a nice long story
