My marriage broke down in May and I found it hard to find time for her. The lady who had her asked...

    The woman has requested a permanent loan- and we have agreed to do 12 monthly contracts. She has also requested a 3 month notice period. I have agreed to this but will include in the loan that I can remove her without notice if I feel she isn't being looked after. I will miss her so much. I...
