    She needs NOT to go back with him- for the sake of her son if nothing else. I hope she doesn’t turn all forgiving.She may choose to live that way, the child has no choice.

      Had a boyfriend that fed his dog, a yellow lab, a gas station hamburger and that yellow lab turned right around and tossed that burger right on my backpack.
      My dog growing up, a pomeranian mix, threw up lots of times.

      Just curious why you’re willing to put ten bucks on it..

    All because a dog threw up. 

    Think about that all this hard ache, head ache, legal problems, emotional problems because a dog 

    threw up. Hopefully he tells this story in prison. Prisoner 1 : “Hey man what you in for?”Prisoner 2: “Armed Robbery” Prisoner 1: How Bout you man?Wilcox: “A dog threw up and I punched my girl”Prisoners 1 & 2: (Shake their head, get up and kick the life out of Wilcox)
