What an ignorant thing for Kate Gosselin to say: "I realized if I had two difficult kids I wouldn't send them away and ask for new kids." So, when were these dogs difficult? When they were puppies? What an id*ot, Kate is! Of all breeds, German Shepherd Dogs as puppies are dogs that NO one who is inexperienced with dogs should ever add to their home. The pups did what pups do and Kate did what she does - show her pea-sized brain.
If those dogs were in my possession and she asked for them back I'd slam the door right in her face or hang up the phone. I'm fuming...just fuming. And, I'm also feeling so, so sorry for these dogs. Life is confusing enough for human beings, let alone a dog that is tossed around like a hot potato. KATE, FOR A REALITY MOM YOU NEED TO GET REAL! (Sorry about the rant but I became overwhelmed with this horrible news!)
"My kids' lives have been changed and compromised and altered enough over the past year," Kate Gosselin tells PEOPLE. "I realized if I had two difficult kids I wouldn't send them away and ask for new kids."
Dad Jon Gosselin returned the young pups to their trainer in September, at the height of his divorce drama with now-ex-wife Kate. At the time, Jon blamed the move on Kate, telling E! Online, "It's not fair to the dogs to not be wanted in their own home."
If that was the case, the reality mom has since changed her tune, telling PEOPLE, "I'd never quit on my kids, so why would I think I was going to quit on my dogs?" She adds that the pups will return to the family's Wernersville, Pa., home "once the weather warms up."
Jon came under fire last year for comments he made about the dogs, telling PEOPLE that the couple's eight kids would "climb on them, pull their tails, bite at them [and] drag them." He later clarified his statement, saying, "Shoka and Nala are loyal companions who we consider members of our family. We would never do anything to hurt them, and treat them with the respect and love that they deserve."
