I don't know about you but I sat and watched with amazement during the replays of the Ellen DeGeneres show where she became so upset about the dog adoption issue. The only reason I am suspect about some of this is that fact that the show is taped. They certainly knew that what she said and did was going to be aired.
As for the story, that also is amazing. While I understandthe need for the adoptation agency to follow their rules (and Ellen admitted she signed and contract she never read), does it seem like they could have all met together and resolved this without all the theatrics.
I have two wonderful dogs and this site is dedicated to one we lost a little over a year ago. I know first hand the pain of losing a pet. I seems to me this all could have been avoided with just a little common sense on everyone's part.
