|You know what, I can't let this one go.
The more I think about it, the more it festers, and the more furious I become.
How dare. And I mean how DARE this author wag a finger at me, or people like me.
I'm about to say something extremely un-PC, but dammit if I could see this person eye-to-eye I would say it just the same...
I care for my dogs better than you do.
Yeah, that's right you self-righteous little turd, I'd bet all my worldy possessions that its true.
I do not vaccinate my dogs yearly, as an EDUCATED choice on my part for what I personally feel to be the safest and most healthy thing for my animals. Yet, every year, usually multiple times a year, I have my dogs in for physical evaluations, to have their hearts listened to, to have bloodwork drawn, and just to get an outside hand on them to make sure I haven't missed anything.
I bought a deep freezer that I routinely fill with raw meat that I use to make their meals with. I've driven HOURS out of my way just to load my car down with boxes full of dead rabbits and carcasses and every manor of things, which personally I find DISGUSTING, so that I can provide to my dogs what I feel is the healthiest, most appropriate diet available. I spend HOURS chopping and processing and balancing to ensure they are getting everything they need.
I've spent god only knows what buying all this organic coconut oil, kelp, raw goat's milk, non-soy based non-artificial vitamin E oils and Ester C and glucosamine and all this CRAP that may or may not even be doing anything for them, but that I keep up because if it even does SOMETHING, then its worth it to me.
I haul these dogs out to a chiropractor to have adjustments done on them and to get them laser therapy and muscle massages and whatever else voodoo this lady works, I don't even know but its magic and I do it and I don't even think twice about it.
I drive my sorry skin HOURS in every conceivable direction for every training scenario you can possible imagine. I do, have, or will have trained in OB, agility, protection work, tracking, even took a herding clinic that I blew a pretty penny on just to be disappointed in. This Saturday Ridley starts his first tracking class, I'm trying to get him in a group OB class for Thursdays, do agility with Mulder on Wednesdays and if I can find the TIME and the MONEY will also try to get him back into a competition OB class again on Tuesdays.
I THREW AWAY $50 worth of entry fees to walk into an AKC OB trial on Saturday and scratch my dog because he just wasn't with me, left the ring in TEARS, came back the next day only to NQ but finish the routine and walk out of that ring with a SMILE ON MY FACE because dammit he did GOOD even if he didn't Q and I would walk out there and do it all again a TRILLION MORE TIMES if I knew he was having fun and that's what he wanted to be doing.
So how DARE some uppity little tart sit here and point a finger at ME, and all the people LIKE ME, who bleed every last drop of blood in our bodies for these dogs, sit here and say they judge US.
No, honey, I judge YOU. YOU are the one coming up lacking in this scenario, and YOU are the one who should be ashamed.
