Forgive me for airing this out in front of everyone but I have my heart in my throat and broken in pieces. This one time I see no way out of. There is much I won't share because it would do no good. All I can say is that I have had a huge part of my heart ripped out.
I have lost my best friend and grandson because of selfish and foolish reasons my daughter has come up with. Thinking she can manipulate us into doing her will she has taken her son away from us. What caused this disaster? We told her we wouldn't keep her bulldog while she was gone.
You see the last time we did she caused a lot of trouble for us. Urinating on our couch and floor. Eating our dog and cat's food. It was a nightmare. Doesn't this sound simple to remedy? Not for me it isn't. You might be able to tell your daughter no and that is it. Not me.
This is too hard to go on. I am sorry. Pray for us please. That is the only answer I see. Our daughter has been like this a very long time. It is killing Cathy and me.

Hopefully, there will be peace and resolution to this very difficult situation. IF not, I hope your grandson is old enough that it won't be too long before he can make his own decisions. Its sad, but dogs were a catalyst to a "break" in part of our family, though everyone of us like dogs very much. Brad

Thanks Brad. My grandson is only five and I worry about his day to day life with an unreasonable set of parents. All I can do is pray.

selfish and foolish is right...and uses her son to manipulate her parents...and not only do you guys suffer but so does your grandson...actually him most of all. You stand your ground and dont give into her immaturity and manipulation over her dog.
Let her see what I wrote and tell her that I said she should be ashamed.

I can sympathise with you Darrell, I too lost the chance to see my eldest grand-daughter growing up.My eldest son and daughter in law split up 7yrs ago and after about 9mnths my son met some one else,of course his ex wasn't happy about it and stopped him seeing his daughter,I offered to pick her up each week and bring her to my house,so that the ex wouldn't have to see my son but,she was adamant,that while he was with someone else none of us could see her, we tried everything,and my son pays maintenance etc, But no,and after a year of battling to see my grand-daughter,she moved to Ireland with no forwarding address,I or my son have not seen her since,We miss her terribly,I don't even know what she looks like now.The one consolation is my eldest son has another little daughter now and my other son has two little boys,I love the three of them but it doesn't take away all the pain of having lost my first grand child and I don't think it ever will.
Be strong Darrell,don't give in to blackmail,my thoughts and prayers are with you and Cathy, I hope the Lord will help your daughter see sense and soon. God Bless x

Erik and d Thomas thank you for your support.
Jane, your story brought tears to my eyes. I think we are going to have a lifelong separation too. My son in law called and said he was coming to kill me and then I find out she told the rest of the family I punched her twice. I would take a lie detector on that lie. My wife was there and saw the whole thing. She reported that lie to the police and they told her to file a report and they would come and arrest me. So far I am still alive and free.
