Default Mustard is still with me

Well, Mustard was supposed to go an awesome home a week ago, but it (yet again) fell through. This poor dog, first he had a foster lined up that didn't work out, then an adoption that fell through, and then ANOTHER adoption that fell through. The first because they decided they couldn't handle two dogs, the second because not everyone in the household wanted a new dog. The third is the most heartbreaking... A dog experienced, pit bull experienced family with no other dogs (perfect for Mustard) and four kids (Mussy loves kids!) with a work schedule that meant he would hardly ever be home alone. Why didn't they take him?

The wife's STUPID sister convinced her that Mustard's "history" (or lack there of, basically) meant he was more likely to "snap one day" on their kids. The woman didn't really know what to believe, but with the seed of doubt sewn, felt that she couldn't put her kids at risk. I would NEVER place a dog with four kids of that dog wasn't sound as sound can be, which I told her, but nevertheless... He's still with me.

On the bright side, Ketchup has a new home! He's now named Rex and he's doing great! He plays fetch in the yard, goes for lots of walks, and dotes on their grandchildren.

Um so... the real point of this thread is to tell you guys that I still have Mustard, and... I.. um.... I'm not so sure I really want that to change???
