It's been less than three months since David Eason shot and killed Jenelle Evans' dog - but it's almost impossible to believe how much life has changed for the couple in that short time.
Shortly after the shooting, Jenelle was fired from Teen Mom 2.
Not long after that, the incident sparked a CPS investigation which resulted in Jenelle losing custody of her kids.
Following a lengthy legal battle, Jenelle regained custody earlier this month.
Still, you'd think after all that, she would hold off on owning dogs for a while.
But no one has ever accused Jenelle of being overly-cautious, or cautious at all ... or, for that matter, a fit parent capable of providing a stable home life for her children.
And so, canines have once again been introduced to The Land.
And if you're concerned that the new pooches might cross paths with a shotgun-toting Eason (yes, he offed Jenelle's 11-pound French bulldog with a freakin' shotgun), then you're certainly not alone.
According to a new report from TMZ, the Columbus County Sheriff's office has been flooded with complaints following the news that David and Jenelle scooped up a pair of Anatolian shepherds.
The only problem is, most of the calls come from out of area, and there's currently no evidence that David and Jenelle have mistreated the animals in any way.
But even if we put David's violent temper aside for a moment (no easy feat, that), it sounds as though there's reason to be concerned about this potentially disastrous situation.
The Easons say they bought the dogs primarily to protect their livestock.
But breeders tell TMZ that Anatolian shepherds are notoriously difficult to train, and they can be aggressive in many situations.
If trained from birth they can be effective as barnyard dogs, but Jenelle and David purchased the animals fully-grown.
Which means they're more likely to eat the Easons' chickens than protect them.
Not only that, Anatolians are known for their powerful jaws, which means if there is some sort of incident, it could have ugly consequences.
David, of course, shot little Nugget after the dog allegedly bit 2-year-old Ensley, but Eason was unable to provide any evidence that such an incident occurred.
Further complicating the situation is the fact that Nugget's body was never found, leading many to believe that David attempted to conceal his crimes.
But for now, local animal control authorities say they've received no complaints from neighbors accusing the Easons of mistreating their new animals.
And given the lack of evidence in the Nugget slaying, there's no credible reason to remove the animals from The Land.
We're trying to convince ourselves this won't end badly.
But frankly, it hasn't been easy.
