    For unknown reasons after her family moved to a new home in the Oklahoma city of Seminole, they decided they couldn’t keep Cathleen, a 6-year-old Great Pyrenees mix, and gave her to someone living about 20 miles away.

    The foster was supposed to be temporary while the Seminole Animal Shelter found her a home, but Cathleen just couldn’t wait. She walked from Prague to Seminole TWICE in search of her family.

    Fuck that fucking scumbag family, they don't deserve any dog let alone one as awesome as she is.
    I hope they all get killed in a home invasion.

    Can you teach an old dog to take a hint?

    That escalated quickly didn't it. I mean, this isn't a feel-good story. Its sad. Asshole family abandons their dog because they're too lazy to find a place that takes pets. Breaks dog's heart who walks her paws raw to go find them.

    I guess the moral is don't get a dog if there's a chance you'll have to relocate to a place where you can't have them. I won't get another dog until I know it will outlive me.

    Dogs are so awesome. I could totally understand if that was a cat but not a dog.

    I hope she goes to a loving family. Parents are ASSWIPES of the highest order. Probably discussed abortion of at least one of their kids.

    That's the hardest part; I outlived 2 dogs.

    No more, I can't go through that again!

    ...yep. Never gets easier. If it did, it'd mean you've turned into a douchebag.

    This phenomenon of pets as family members has materialized since I was a child. Nobody treated pets the same way then as they do now. I ask people, if you knew your child was going to die in front of you in 18 years, would you have them? I know that's a little extreme, but not really for the "drag my dog around the store" crowd.

    Seen this story.

    I think you should have to purchase a license to own a dog and if you fuck up like this family then your blacklisted for ever owning a pet again.
