Whoops….a husband says, “It’s me or the dogs” wife chooses dogs.
That’s the choice Liz Haslam’s husband Mike gave her after 25 years of marriage. Haslam chose the dogs and told Mike to leave.
“I haven’t seen or heard from him since. I thought after 25 years, he should know giving up the dogs was not what my intentions were,” she told Express.co.uk.
Haslam says that she was born into an animal-obsessed family. Her mother bred West Highland terriers and her father ran an animal food company.
When the couple from Suffolk England wed in 1991, Liz was already knee deep in devotion to four-legged pups. She turned this passion into her livelihood and seven years ago, when she moved with her husband to a house with a half-acre of land, she opened a pet boarding business. The business eventually became Bedsforbullies, a bull terrier sanctuary Haslam founded to provide care to rescue bull terriers in need of medical or behavioral help until the dogs can find forever homes.
Since her husband Mike left 18 months ago, Haslam has not spoken to him, even though the former couple have a 22-year-old son. She has expanded the number of dogs she is taking in and has also offered shelter to a homeless man. Unfortunately, her landlord served her with an eviction notice and she now has to find a new home for herself and the growing number of rescue dogs she is caring for, which at last count was 30 dogs.
