|I just know way too many idiot dog owners, don't I? Way too many people that SHOULD NOT. EVER. OWN. DOGS.
I want to scream and pull my hair out. Bylaw/Humane Society won't do anything because on the surface, all looks fine and dandy! The dogs have shelter, food, water, treats, toys, affection. If they get smacked around once in a while, animal control isn't going to see and investigation doesn't do much because of course the owners don't do that in front of them. If the dogs SAFETY is at stake... What do they care if they can't SEE it on a day to day basis or evidence of such?
I'm frustrated beyond belief right now.
This poor dog.
Friends have a dog that they should never have gotten. I've tried to do something about the situation multiple times, and nobody will take away their dog, and of course, they don't see the problem, so they won't rehome her..
I got a call. "What can happen if my dog got hold of some T3's and ate them? How fast could they kill her?" Well... I asked the basics: how many did she eat, is she showing any symptoms, how long ago, trying to get details. No symptoms. Within the last few hours.
You know what struck me as the stupidest part of all of it? I get that people make mistakes and sometimes, dogs accidentally get hold of things they normally wouldn't or normally can't. Once is a mistake. But twice? This WAS NOT the first time this dog got hold of this bottle of pills.
In fact. It's the second. The first time, the dog just chewed the bottle and never got it open, thank god. The second time(WHY was there a second time?! HOW WAS THERE A SECOND TIME?! Did you NOT learn from the first time to put the pills where the dog COULD NOT GET THEM?! GRAAHHHHH!!!!!!!), she got the bottle of pills opened and they weren't sure if she got any or not.
I told them of a good E-Vet to take her to if she showed any symptoms, but so far the consensus is that she DID NOT eat any.
BUT WTH IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE?!
I was practically banging my head off the dashboard on the passenger side of my fiance's truck as they were relaying events to me.
You'd THINK people would learn from the first mistake. But no, course not. They're too daft for that.
And I'm frustrated, because no matter how much I complain, I'm just one person, and no matter how much I complain, the investigation goes nowhere because on the surface, all appears to be fine and dandy. I'm beginning to wonder when they'll make the mistake that takes their dogs life. And I'm terrified for her.
