When Debbie Cardone’s husband Vincent sent flowers home, it made her feel appreciated. However, when Debbie read the note, she discovered that the bouquet was not for her. It turned out, in fact, that Vincent had been splitting his affections between his wife and someone else.
The Cardone family hail from Palm City in Florida, and they consist of mom Debbie, dad Vincent, their daughter Lily, son Vincent Jr. and dog Sebastian. However, in early 2017, Vincent was working away in the Middle East, while Lily was a freshman at the University of Florida in Gainesville.
That meant that for most of the time, Debbie was presumably left in charge of the dog. To make matters worse, Sebastian had dealt with some health issues lately; in particular, he had previously undergone surgery on one of the anterior cruciate ligaments in his legs.
