Unhappy What Would Happen To Your Neezers If...

Do you already have a plan in place for your neezer/s if something were to happen to you? (or to both you and your spouse)

I have to say that I have given this alot of thought lately..so much so that my husband and I have put it into our will that if both of us should die in a car accident, that both of our babies would go to a good friend. And of course, if I should go before my husband the worst that could happen to them is that he would take them right down and have the groomer do a puppy cut on both of them

What are your thoughts on this???

Not something I like to think about! But...

If something happened to me, I'm guessing my hubby would try to keep up with grooming Lincoln and Scout, but eventually they'd get cut down

If something happened to both of us, the dogs would go back to their breeder, Elaine. It is in my contract that I am not to rehome them myself - which I am fine with. I trust that she would find them a new family that would be a good match.

Yes, I've made arrangements and memorialized them in writing as well.

And on a somewhat related note, I didn't get earthquake supplies for years after moving to California until I got dogs; then I immediately felt compelled to do the earthquake kit. (It has more water/dog treats/extra meds for Abby and BJ than stuff for me, but I"m hoping they'll share )

My daughter and D-I-L both love animals passionately and I know they would take care of the little guys. No worries there.

AND, if I should go first, and DH re-marries, as he will probably quickly do - Daughter is instructed to come get my china etc. ..don't let the OTHER WOMAN get her hands on it...and if THE NEW WIFE mis-treats my little guys, come and get them as well.
(Not really worried, DH adores them. But what if he's not at home and she locks them in the closet....)

My only real fear is if there is some national catastrophe and they are left alone...

But we must trust in Him who watches the sparrows....

I am fortunate in this regard. My Mother and brother would fight over who gets Riley. My brother would probably take him since he already has a Hav. Either way, he would end up in a really good home.

I wish they would be so enthusiastic about being guardians for my two teenage sons!

Just want to make it clear that I mean nothing personal against SECOND WIVES. I'm sure some of them are perfectfully wonderful women.

At least she'd better not be a better cook than I am!

Yes, we put care of our animals in our will. If we go at the same time the Havs would go back to their breeder but we have friends who we have indicated all of our animals should go to and they have agreed to care for them so hopefully the Hav's breeder would approve them as an adoptive family. We set aside a sum of money from our estate (if you can call it that since we aren't filthy rich...) for their veterinary care or other needs.

My contract says that if Kodi needed to be rehomed, we would need to contact the breeder first, and that under no circumstances is he to be placed in a pound or shelter. Knowing the Kings, I suspect that if we had a friend or relative that really wanted Kodi and could care for him properly, the Kings would be fine with that as long as we talked to them about it. But I also know they have taken back and rehomed dogs where the initial owners have had a change of circumstances and could no longer keep the dog.

In any case, it would have to be a catastrophe where both Dave and I died at the same time... Kodi has Dave totally wrapped around his little paw. I don't know about his coat... I mentioned the possibility of a puppy cut, as I will be away for the first two weeks in Feb, and he's starting to blow coat, and Dave was WAY against that idea. However, if HE were the one who had to do the daily grooming, I suspect that Kodi might find himself in a puppy cut sooner rather than later.<g>

I've thought about this often since I got sick a few years ago. I don't know, other than I'd want them to be kept together if humanly possible and I'd want someone who would love them at least as much as I do to have them in their care. Any takers???
