The Ultimutt Betrayal: Who Gets Custody of Bolt?

After nursing Bolt back to health and happiness, I found myself in a tricky situation when Tom suddenly demanded his dog back. With no job and no support from his parents, I had to make the tough call and refuse to return Bolt. Things got heated when Tom called the cops, but they sided with me since Bolt had been in my care for over 15 days. In the end, Bolt officially became mine, and we've been living our best lives ever since! But I can't help but wonder, did I do the right thing? Let's see what the internet has to say about this paw-some drama!

Wedding vows should apply to dogs too. Tom is irresponsible.
