This, totally. Do you live with your parents? If not, then I would have bitched her out for giving MY puppy back to the pound, when I said I'd find someone to take care of her (that or take her to a kennel!). If you do, did you get permission to buy a puppy? How long did you know about this trip?
Maybe you should have given it more thought, before you decided to re-home an animal. It is a full time commitment to have a dog. they do not stay puppies forever....... next time make sure you are ready before you decide to get it back or get another. not FYL. FML the puppy's life. If you are serious, go get your dog back.
And this is exactly why people don't listen to animal lovers. The OP gave no reason to believe that they had not put thought into the choice to get a puppy. Their mother chose to take the dog to the pound rather than giving her kid a chance to find someone to watch it. Obviously the mother should have thought more about the responsibility, not the OP. I'm surprised she didn't take her kid back to the hospital when she figured out that she'd have to find a baby sitter if she wanted to have some alone time.
