Matt: Hey everybody, Matt and Tamsen and Parker here to talk about should you give away your pet for a lover? Tamsen: I can’t even believe we’re addressing this. No, you shouldn’t—we never give them away for you or anybody. Matt: For me, even now? Tamsen: I will never give him away. I would have to find other way to compromise. Matt: Alright, here’s the think. I got to be honest with you. If you’re really in love with somebody and I have a horrible allergy and they— Tamsen; Wouldn’t you already know before you fall in love with them if they have a horrible allergy? Matt: Well, yeah. Are you falling in love them, you learned that they have a horrible allergy and they can’t be around with cats or dogs or you know they break out, or they can’t breathe, whatever it’s really bad. What are you going to do? Are you going to forego a relationship for Parker or are you going to you know let Parker stay with your sister or brother a lot, maybe forever. Tamsen: I mean, if you’re talking about somebody really being so sick that I guess you have to make some kind of concession but I think you have to really exhaust all options before you just toss aside your pet. Matt: Do you think for Parker like in a plastic bag, you put the legs and the head out so its like— Tamsen: Don’t you think that it shows somebody like what kind of feeling you know what kind of sensitivity you have with animals. Animal show what people have. Matt: Yes, animals are secondary and people are first. That would make me feel like my significant other really cares about me. Tamsen: Well, you better then take me out anytime soon because he ain’t going anywhere. Matt: What do you guys think? Do you give away a pet for a lover? What do you do in the situation like that? Let us know.
