HALLELUIAH! As for your question - it is a mind game and you'd be surprised how even the strongest of women can get sucked in to an abusive relationship (speaking from personal experience). I used to ask the same question then the Universe gave ME the life lesson. If you've not had that lesson, count your blessings!

That is huge and such an important development, since as you note the threat of violence to pets is so dreadfully common from domestic abusers.

I am not sure how it happens but I would expect that living with someone like that for some time just erodes your self-confidence and your will to such a degree that it is difficult to imagine a way out.

YEA! I love that the dogs are getting to stay with the family that loves them and the a##h*(e can't get to the pet or the family either one!!!!!

I was so thrilled to read this news. Hope Massachusetts' example leads more states to follow.

I'm especially impressed that the team who was helping this woman and her child included finding immediate foster care for the dog.

This should be done everywhere in the world.

I think that we all know that when we meet someone new it takes time to get to know them. I think that these men (sometimes women) know exactly how to hold back their violence until it is too late for their partner to get out easily.
