@megz06:  Who is the ‘she’ you are upset about? You never actually say. The only other woman you talk about in the post (besides you) is your mom who told you your dog has passed, so I don’t think it’s her…I’m confused.

@megz06:  I’m so sorry you are dealing with the loss of a pet 🙁 I can’t imagine losing mine! It breaks my heart…

From your post I can’t tell who made the comment on FB. You just say “she” so I thought it was your mom but obviously your mom already knew? So was it just a friend?

Either way I wouldn’t respond to her. People can be stupid and I feel like FB ENCOURAGES people to be stupid. Also, people without pets or without the same attachment to their pets don’t realize how upsetting it can really be.

It is hurtful, but I’d just ignore it.

@megz06:  Since she’s your MIL I wouldn’t remove all of your ways to contact her, but I would set up my facebook settings to make what she can see of your profile extremely limited. It’s like unfriending her without the actual drama of unfriending her.

This is easier said than done, but try not to think about her and her silly comments. Cuddle your other dog as tight as you can and eat whatever food you like, concentrate on happy things and mourning your loss xx

@megz06:  Oh ok I see…She definitely could have worded that better. Like that maybe she hoped you’d tell her so she could offer support but the sarcastic “Thanks!” just makes my eyes roll.

If anything she should have expected your FI to tell her. The passive agressive side of me would want to reply with something like “Sorry we didn’t contact you right away, as you can understand it was a very emotional/busy/stressful day.”

@megz06:  How rude!  Some people think it’s all about them.  I’m also sorry to hear about your family dog 🙁

Does your MIL have other DILs?  Are you two close?  Maybe she thinks you are closer than you are?

@megz06:  It wasn’t her dog and you two don’t sound especially close. I can’t imagine why you would call her and no one should be judgesd for how they grieve – I’d probably hide in a dark room and ignore the world, not worry about how other people where handling MY loss. 

I thought this post was going to be you being upset that your dog got put down without your consent – that would piss me off. And I don’t know what fee your DH had to pay but I hope it wasn’t the euthanisa fee 🙁 I’m sorry for this situation.
