[Blind Gossip] If a tree falls in a forest and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound?
If a pet disappears, but no one can prove what happened to it, does the pet even exist?
The answer to the first question is “Yes.”
The answer to the second question is “No.”
Look, the dog is gone, so people need to get over that. It’s not buried on their property and there is no proof of anything, so it’s over. They had a fight about whether or not to say it was a publicity stunt but they did what they had to do to get the kids back. They will try for another show.
Is our TV couple worried about legal trouble over their pet?
No. You think the cops are going to put out an Amber alert for a missing pet? Ha. It’s not like it’s a missing kid or something. The only thing they’re worried about it how to get another show, so they are going to do what they have to do to move on.
What lovely people. Perhaps their new pets – or karma – will bite them in the butt?

Couple: Jenelle Evans and David Eason of Teen Mom
After their dog, Nugget, disappeared, Jenelle Evans and David Eason lost their TV show and custody of their children.
That’s because David claimed he had shot the dog after it bit their young child.
Following the backlash, they backpedaled, thinking it would defer criticism and help them get their kids back.
Jenelle said she had no idea if Nugget was living or dead.
That was a lie.
We knew the dog was dead, that authorities would not find the dog’s body, and simply hoped that the truth would emerge over time.
The couple is finally admitting that David did shoot the dog.
Jenelle Evans‘ husband David Eason has confirmed that he killed her dog, Nugget.
Eason, who received significant backlash and criticism for his decision to shoot and kill the animal this past spring, opened up to PeopleTV’s People Now about what led to the fatal incident.
“It was a situation where my daughter, her health, her safety was in danger,” Eason explained, referencing 2-year-old daughter Ensley Jolie.
“This was something that nobody wants to ever have to do. The dog was aggressive. Yes, she might not be huge or whatever, but you know when a dog bites a child on the face more than one time, then it should never be around the child again,” said Eason, 31. “If you give the dog up for adoption, one day it’s going to be around children again.”
He continued: “If you call the authorities at that point, the law says the dog has to be euthanized. I’m not going to pay anyone to euthanize my dog when I could do it myself.”
“I mean, I loved that dog,” Eason said, fighting back tears. “I still think about her every day. It’s really hard for me. A lot of people put me down for it, they hate me for it, but like I said it was not something I wanted to do.”
Teen Mom 2 alum Evans, 27, shared she had hoped the incident wouldn’t have gotten out to the public as it was a “private family issue that happened within our household.”
“We didn’t want it getting out in the news at all,” Evans said.
The reality star shared that on the day it happened, she told a friend of hers, who then told her 5-year-old son Kaiser’s father, Nathan Griffith.
“[He] called the cops and said, ‘Check on my son.’
Evans shared that Eason is now extremely remorseful, explaining, “He does realize that what he did was wrong. And he does realize that he shouldn’t have done it. And he said, ‘I’m sorry, I didn’t realize how bad it was going to hurt everyone.’ “
When asked if he thinks it would have been better to place Nugget into a new home, Eason said, “no.”
“I don’t think the dog should have been re-homed, no. Regardless of what I did, the dog would have been euthanized. … The law says if you don’t euthanize a dog that bites somebody, within a reasonable amount of time, you are held liable for neglect,” he said.
Since Nugget’s death, Eason and Evans have taken steps to heal as a family.
“I have [forgiven him], and we went to co-parenting counseling sessions — it’s kind of like a marriage session in one. And he’s also taken anger management classes; he took six classes, completed the whole course. So I mean, he did do things to try to better himself. We’ve been working out really well ever since. We got over it,” Evans said.
“Actually, my pitbull Jax, he actually killed one of our pigs recently. So instead of David saying, ‘Well let me euthanize the dog, let’s just give the dog away.’ So we gave the dog away instead … So he’s even taken the initiative to correct his actions and not repeat the same mistakes he’s made before,” she explained.
On April 30, Eason, posted a video of the dog becoming aggressive toward Ensley as she tried to hug him. He also shared a photo showing a scratch mark on the toddler’s face.
“I don’t give a damn what animal bites my baby on the face… whether it be your dog or mine, a dog is a dog and I don’t put up with that s— at all,” he wrote. “I’m all about protecting my family, it is my life’s mission. Some people are worth killing or dying for and my family means that much to me. You can hate me all you want but this isn’t the first time the dog bit Ensley aggressively. The only person that can judge whether or not a animal is a danger to MY CHILD is ME.”
It was revealed in July that Eason would not be facing animal cruelty charges for shooting and killing Nugget.
After Nugget was “disappeared”, the couple went out and bought two more puppies.
They got their kids back and there will be no charges filed against them. It remains to be seen whether they will be able to land a new reality show.
