Generally speaking, I don't have an opinion on Ellen. She's okay. I don't watch daytime television. But this whole debate with the dog? Bad form. Bad fucking form. It's called a contract. If you don't feel like following it, tough cookies, you got smacked by the system. Don't go on live telelvision just because you lost because you weren't paying attention. Now that organization is shut down and the co-founders are getting death threats. Great job, Ellen. It's unfortunate that this good organization and the dogs and families they work to help are screwed because you didn't bother to read before signing or felt like your deed of goodness was above the contract/law. To be fair, I don't know what reason she gives for not following the contract, but now she's sobbing on television and saying 'DON'T THEY HAVE A HEART' or some shite like that and really, I have no sympathy. I love animals. I fully support people get animals for their families. But not that way.

By the way, I'm pretty sure all of this from me is because a.) my mother made me like judge shows, and those are like, ALL ABOUT broken contracts and such, and b.) working in a law office.

I agree with you but that's possibly because... I spend all day thinking about The Law (oh dear). But seriously, that organization is just trying to do things in the right way, and no one should receive death threats for completing their job properly.

psh. only LAW STUDENTS DO THAT, AND YOU KNOW ABOUT LAW STUDENTS. and I know she's like "okay people, violence = not the answer." and the death threats... you can't really foresee those all the time. but being as popular as she is, she should know better. doing that on the show was a low blow. you have to be responsible. but yeah, blah blah, CONTRACT. it was such an easy kind of mistake to make.

I agree; If they were allowed to keep the dog, it would open a whole horrid world of people getting dogs for people who don't deserve them.

It sort of defeats the purpose of the organization. The rules they have in place are there for a good reason and to protect the dogs and such. I'm glad to hear that the dog's in a better place now, since another family passed the evaluation. But it disturbs me that Rosie O'Donnell and Donald Trump are speaking up and Trump is like "I'll buy the dog" when it's CLEARLY NOT ABOUT THE MONEY.
