    Long story; Short.

    I haven't talked to me ex since 2006.

    He texted me: Would you take Parker? I'm leaving the country, and I can't take her with me. I don't want to put her in an animal shelter.

    -This sums it up. We haven't talked since 2006.

    -There's not a day that goes by that I don't think about this man.

    -I wish I still had communication with him.

    -I feel this is a guilt trip.

    WHAT WOULD YOU DO?

    Take the dog and pray the journey is safe for him.
    You think about him everyday? and your worried about falling into a trap? its almost like you would like to walk into one.

    sounds like you were on his mind too, he dint just think of you randomly. At least in my case i tend to forget about exes after a while.

    You should take the dog because as a animal lover I don't think shelters are good for animals. Secondly, who knows maybe this will create a bound btw you and him and u all get what u want icon_smile.gif

    Take the dog (if you can) and limit your interaction with him as much as possible. He's gone, you're not getting him back. It sounds harsh, but the guy is leaving the country.

    Is he asking for you to take the animal temporarily or permanently?

    If you have had no contact for four years,it does not seem as though you have any obligation.

    wait is the dog something u guys got together?
    if it is take the dog but dont re-establish contact. u do need to move on but thats not fair for the dog to end up in a shelter.

    Take Parker. Have him give you the dog in WRITING. Come up with a document and make him sign it.

    It's about the dog, not him, or really you. Go with a friend to get the dog. Do NOT go alone.

    If the dog was owned jointly between you then take her if you are able to, but otherwise just reply "no, sorry" and leave it at that.

    Why does everyone assume Parker is a dog? ha ha!! She could be a cat or bunny, right? icon_smile.gif Just thought that was funny!!

    I agree with some of the other questions. Is this permanent or temporary? I'd feel bad for the animal, but it sounds to me like you're setting yourself up for disappointment. You've wanted to talk to this guy again every day for four years and he's never said anything to you until he needed something. It doesn't sound like you're going to get what you want (him), so if you're ok with that, fine. But, if you really are taking the animal just to communicate with your ex again, I wouldn't.

    Take Parker... It'll will be his last parting gift to you, as you say goodbye. Parker, will be part of a cherished memory you once had with his former owner.... Parker will probably make you happier in the end.

    I don't think the dog should suffer, an animal shelter is pretty much a death sentence for most animals. If you have room for it, then by all mean think of the dog. Worst case scenario you can pawn the dog on someone else if it reminds you of him, but since he's on your mind everyday I don't think the dog is going to make much of a difference.
