If you are a dog lover, there are few things that can tear you away from your precious fur babies. there are few things that can keep you away from your precious fur babies. Adopted pets, big or small, quickly become part of the family, whether you like it or not.
Liz Haslam bonded with each of her dogs, and she had plenty of them. Liz has done a good job saving the bull terriers, using half an acre of land for a kennel boarding house attached to the two-bedroom farmhouse she shared with her husband Mike in Barnham, Suffolk. The dogs themselves were often abandoned or had behavioral issues. Beds for Bullies, his organization, can house up to 30 bull terriers at a time.
In fact, all of these dogs need warmth and attention, so much so that Liz can spend around 18 hours a day caring for them, walking them and spending hundreds of dollars on their medications and treatments they might need.
Fed up with the unusual situation, according to Express, Mike gave his wife an ultimatum. it was him or the dogs. 25 years together and a 22 year old son often failed to get him to stay with her and the dogs.
For Liz, the decision was clear. it was the dogs, 100%. She couldn’t give up what made her happy and what benefited the creatures that needed her help. If she didn’t take care of them, who will?
She said: “I haven’t seen or heard from him since. I thought after 25 years he should know that giving up the dogs was not what my intentions were.”
“He got to the point where he was fed up and wanted to slow down. But I wasn’t ready to give it up. So he decided to leave,” she added.
The couple met when she was 16 and fell in love. In January 1991, they got married, and Liz surely thought she was marrying the love of her life. She could never have believed it would come to this.
But it seems she has a positive attitude about the whole ordeal. She may have lost her husband, but she can still do what makes her happy!
