The news story made it sound like he and his wife had sold jewelry, family heirlooms, etc to come up with the money. The sellers told him to pick up the puppies at the ATL Airport Kennel.
Do I feel sorry for him? Yeah, but do I think he should be able to pass on the price of his....whatever, to my kids?
What do you think?
I am not following the connections you are trying to make there.
