Dear Dish-It: My Mom's Giving Up My Dog

Dear Dish-It,


I’m trying to convince my mom not to give my dog away. We’ve had her for a year. Please help me – I don’t know what to do.

Dear BBM,


I’m so sorry – this is a tough situation. I have a dog and I would never give him away! I think what you need to do is ask your mom if you can sit down and talk to her about her decision to give your dog up. Don’t get mad and don’t get upset when you talk to her – just stay calm. You need to show her you’ve given it a lot of thought and you feel really strongly about wanting to keep your dog.


You could also try telling your mom that you will take care of the dog and take on all the responsibilities of having a pet. That means you need to walk your dog at least twice a day, even if you have to get up extra early before school. You’ll have to be in charge of feeding her and making sure she always has clean water to drink. You’ll also have to train her so she behaves well around the house and so your mom has no reason to get frustrated with her.


If you promise your mom that you’ll take care of the dog, you’ll have to stick to your word and keep it up. You won’t be able to let even one single walk slip by. If you really want to keep your dog, it’s time to act very mature and grown up and show your mom you’re old enough to take care of a pet and to help out around the house.

    You need breakfast and lunch. Starving yourself, even if you aren't hungry, makes you loose energy to the point you could pass out from not eating. Keep your diet healthy. For breakfast, at least have yogurt, fruit, and juice. Drink at least 4 full glasses of water a day. Trim down on the snacks. Everyone has different bodies and build. You may just be large-boned. And that's not bad! That makes you stronger and higher ability to gain muscle. Loosing weight doesn't happen over night. It can take months.

    For years my parents would tell me I'm skinny but compared to other people, my waist was bigger and I would always hide it. Though it was obvious I weighed more, I've only been doing this for a week and I didn't ever tell anyone what I was doing until my parents found out. I would skip lunch and breakfast and say I was full. I only ate a big dinner every night. Once my parents found out, they said it was unhealthy and if I didn't  stop, I would develop an eating disorder. I obviously listened to them, but I've tried as best as I can so far. I have barely lost any weight from exercise and my parents won't let me go on a diet because I already 'eat healthy enough'. I want to lose weight without exercising being 3/4s of my lifestyle. I know, I'm a lazy idiot for saying all this.

    Yes, purely for the fact that you should not "hate" your sister (or anyone, for that matter).  I'm guessing by "get in trouble for her", you mean she does something wrong and the blame is all put on you? Yeah, little siblings tend to do that a lot. My brother did for the longest time, until my parents found out how much a liar he is. She, hopefully, will grow out of this eventually. Either that, or your parent[s]/guardian[s] will eventually see through her. You lose your friends to her? By this do you mean your friends want to hang out with her and they want you to tag along and you don't? Or do you mean your friends chose your sister over you? If it's the latter, then perhaps you shouldn't have ever referred to those people as friends. You'll find friends who'll prefer you over your sister, I'm sure of it. The only thing I can tell you to do is try to get along with your sister. Every group of siblings has their cats and dogs moment in life, but they grow out of it (most of the time; there are, of course, circumstances where it doesn't work out that way). Please be grateful for your sister, even if you two fight a lot. You never know how much you need something until it's gone.

If that fails, tell another trusted adult, like your mother. I'm sure someone you're close to would do their best to get justice. This is a major problem and it's a shame no one's done anything to help. ​No one listens to me anyway but my friends
