Jon & Kate’s dogs returning, someday, maybe

Kate Gosselin now says Jon’s two allegedly beloved German Shepherds, which were recently returned to their breeder, may — that’s right, “may” — return home one day.

Radar Online quotes Kate Gosselin as saying the following in a talk at the Southern Women’s Show in Charlotte, North Carolina on Thursday:

“He (Jon) called the breeder and took them back for a short period of time. I’m feeling like I have not enough time to take care of my kids, let alone give the dogs what they need, and the kids surprisingly weren’t that upset about it. They’ll come back I’m sure at some point. But for now, I just needed a break.”

Jon has blamed Kate for forcing him to give up his two dogs, Shoka and Nala, because she doesn’t want to care for them when he’s not at the family’s home in Wernersville, PA. The estranged reality show couple is taking turns staying at home and caring for their eight children.

She is just the most selfish person and trying to say they may come back in the near future is just as much bull! The dogs are better off being as far away from her as possible! Poor kids have no choice right now.

You have got to be kidding me!!! That woman will say anything. She has no intention of bringing the dogs back and furthermore, they are much better without her. Also saying that the kids weren’t that upset??? She truly does not know about the unconditional love that dogs give- especially to children.
I really don’t think that woman is capable of telling the truth. Yeah, we rag on Jon and his behavior has been horrible- Kate is the sneaky one. I can’t even imagine what that woman’s been up to! I think she spends more time on her physical appearance than taking care of the kids. Grrrrrr.

I’m glad all my puppy buyers don’t dump their responsibilities back on me when they need a break. However I pick my buyers better. Poor puppies.

OK, I think I’ve officially crossed over and become a crank. These are the most tiresome people on the face of the Earth. What kind of parents would exploit their children by parading their private family life around for the viewing pleasure of the millions who don’t seem to have lives of their own? And who watches this crap? The dogs are better off for having parted company with these exploitative creeps. Hopefully they will find homes with actual human beings. It’s too bad we can’t do something for the eight innocent, exploited children.

(I’ve never watched the show a single time. I hope I never have to. I filter it out of my visits to CNN, which has the misguided idea that it somehow constitutes news.)
