Thanks again for all the great advice. Beorn and I have agreed that we will probably have to move since my uncle is scary. We can’t risk the puppies “disappearing” since it would provoke him. None of his brothers (including my father) are willing (or able) to stand up to him. My father, as executor is responsible for her wellbeing, so he will have to figure out another way to make sure she is taken care of. It’s going to be a big financial strain on Beorn and I, but my mental health is important. I haven’t been sleeping well since the puppy drama came to a head. Last night my father and uncle got into it over the phone. Then my uncle called back and I (stupidly) answered the phone. He proceeded to tell me that Beorn and I were selfish “takers” and “welfare cases.” Then he showed up out here at Grandma’s house again, so when Beorn informed me of this I told him to stay in the attic. I don’t know my uncle’s opinions on gun control, but I’m not risking it. If I could just get my damn thesis written…
