'Teen Mom 2' Recap: Chelsea's Dog Was Murdered, Plain & Simple

Chelsea Teen Mom 2Tonight was an incredibly sad episode of Teen Mom 2. The situation with Chelsea's dog's murder was just a tragedy, and Kailyn's mother's mistreatment of her only daughter is unbelievably sad. This show just keeps on keeping on with the heartbreak, doesn't it?

It was also moving day for both Leah and Jenelle. So, as usual, the bad and heartbreak are always tempered by the hope for the future.

Jenelle got a house with her friend Amber, which gives some hope that she will get things together and actually end up in a good place. Of course, if you follow the tabloids, you know otherwise. Sigh. Oh and also, Jenelle quit school. The good and the bad, together again.

Jenelle lost a lot of money paying for classes she ultimately dropped. What a waste. What a sad, sad waste. Memo to Jenelle: We all have personal problems that must be balanced with our work. That, my friend, is called real life.

Leah also found a place where the girls can run around and enjoy themselves. Things are looking up for Leah. 

Of course, the happy news was tempered by the incredibly sad news for Chelsea and the heartbreak of Kailyn's mother's continued snubs and cruelty.

I mean, seriously, what is WRONG with Kailyn's mom? She shows up to see Isaac after a year of not being involved? She BLOCKED Kailyn's number from her phone? Life is short. Way too short, in fact. Even if you hate your daughter, you don't hang up on her. You don't block her number.

Jo was in an impossible situation when Kailyn's mother showed up on his doorstep. He wouldn't stop Isaac's grandmother from seeing the baby. For good reasons. He believes in family and wants to see Kailyn patch things up with her mother. But it isn't his place to make that happen. Even more, Kailyn is right. It IS confusing to Isaac to have his grandmother flit in and out of his life. Kailyn and her mother do need to make up. But they won't do it by her mom forcing her into a corner or forcing her way into Isaac's life. It's just wrong.

Tonight, Chelsea had by far the saddest story. Her dog Frankie was killed by the next door neighbor's dog. It was an unbelievably sad thing and Chelsea was heartbroken.

Sadly, there isn't much to say about it. It's just a good thing it wasn't Aubree out there. That neighbor has a hell of a lot to answer for. Sure, Frankie should have been on a leash. But dogs get out. It happens. A vicious dog isn't safe for smaller pets OR for babies. They were in the wrong.

Do you think Chelsea did something wrong with her dogs?

The dog was killed because of its irresponsible, immature owner. She knew that dog was mean and dangerous prior to letting her dog out, thAts why she wouldn't go over to help her own dog after he was mauled. Instead of putting her animals on a leash, she chose to be lazy and let her dogs out by themselves . No excuse that she has a child, put the dogs on a leash, put the child in her playpen or carry your child with you while you take your dogs out. To see her laughing while trying to answer her phone as her dog runs off was horrible. This woman (girl) is responsible for this young dogs death . She shouldn't own a fish let alone a dog. Thank god that child has responsible grandparents. And WTF MTV, where was your camera crew while the dog was being killed? Makes a better story if the poor dog was mauled??

You really think that Chelsea's situation was the worst? Kailyn is in desperate need of help from her family and her own mother has turned her back on her. She had to tell her babies father to not let her own mother see her son. Jenelle is making one bad decision after another that is having a negative impact on her son and her own life. Leah is rushing into a relationship with a man she hardly knows. All of these situations that have a negative impact on the children who are far more important than a dog. A dog who was let out by an irresponsible owner. This attitude that people don't need to take responsibility for their own poor decisions and the inability to see that our children are more important than an animal who was handled irresponsibly is the reason many children are being taught all the wrong lessons in life.

Dog owners need to be more responsible. I have found dogs wandering.streets or almost hit by cars. This is another extreme. Dogs are animals and even if you think your dog is an angel, you never know what they will do. Dogs should be on leashes and should never be allowed to wander around unsupervised. If the dog was tied on someone else's property., sadly it was more Chelsea's mistake; if not the other dog's owner should be held accountable, and is lucky the dog didn't.hurt someone's kid.

First of all Teresa....she was living in a town home on a colts sack where none of the neighbors put or had to put their dogs on a leash, an there wasn't a lot of traffic other than the residents that lives in that specific Volta sack. An second, MTV by contract can't get involved in ANYTHING unless someone was trying to kill themselves or someone else, I agree its fuked up, but sadly I guess dogs don't meet the requirements for the MTV crew to intervene. But Im not saying I would let my dog loose, but I'm saying that's why she did....

This parent has no right to ever own an animal let alone a child. I'm sorry but if I witness my own dog being mauled by another, I am not going to run back into my house and get on the phone. No I am going to get my dog back no matter what, The lack of intelligence is amazing when it comes to this show and the other MTV reality shows and this proved it on so many levels. Also how could the MTV film crew just stand by and film this going on without trying to help the dog? I hope her other animal is taken away by the state and given a real home where they can be looked after responsibly. I own two dogs of my own and would never knowingly let them loose in my yard with a dangerous dog in the neighborhood.

Chelsea was very ignorant with her small dog, Frankie. Yes dogs do get out and yes accidents can happen, but as a mother and a dog owner, she should be taking every precaution to protect her child and dogs. That may mean a leash, an enclosed environment/pen out doors so you can safely let the dog out, etc. Frankie was seen running from Chelsea, in the street, under cars, not responding to name calling, etc. I can only imagine how devastating it was for Chelsea but she needs to accept responsibility for her ignorance which lead to the death of Frankie.

First of all, I will start off by saying that it certainly didn't take long for the "pit bull" comment to be made. Of course, everyone has that anecdotal pit bull story that they pull from their "bag of tricks" every time a dog attack is mentioned in the media. Kudos to creativity. Second & here's a news flash in case anyone is unaware, pit bulls are not the only "breed" of dog that is capable of biting. Any dog is. That's right. ANY dog. Granted, larger dogs are capable of inflicting more damage, however, that is not the same thing as whether or not they are predispositioned to bite. So next time a comment is made, try leaving the breed of dog out of the discussion. It only serves to fuel ignorance & fear.

Regarding Chelsea aka "Bricks", her dog was not "murdered". Not in the slightest. It was nothing more than a tragic accident that should never have occurred in the first place. Regardless of where she was living, a dog should never be off leash unless they have undergone extensive training (even this is pushing it). Especially in a neighborhood where other dogs freely roam (she admitted this in another interview) & where street traffic is a possibility. I also read in the same interview where she stated that the dog in question was "chained all day, every day". Huge red flag people. Intact, chained, male dogs are the MOST likely to bite or display aggression due to frustration/inactivity/boredom, etc. In other words, it's not the dogs fault. Blame it on a sh*tty owner instead.
