Not that I am defending the shooting of any dog but Indiana is one big corn/soy bean field and because of that people who live in the country think its okay to leave their dogs roam free and don't think of the consequences. My grandfather lives in the middle of no where and when I was a kid, I would be over at his house playing outside. One day this brown and white springer spaniel came out of no where and tackled me to the ground. While it wasn't vicious attack, my grandfather did not appreciate a strange dog in his yard, jumping on one of his grandchildren. He came out with his shot gun. He didn't shoot the dog... just scared it off.

These country people claim that their dogs would never hurt another animal even though the owners of the property have seen these dogs come over multiply times and chase their chickens or cattle. I don't think its fair to the farm owners whose animals are being scared and killed by free roaming dogs not to be able to defend their animals.

I will say bb gun pellets sound more like *insert whatever word not allowed on dogster here* teenagers or drunk people.

I will say being involved in Spaniel rescue, we get Springers in all the time because they chased or killed the chickens...

Mya looks just like the pitbull/border collie mix that was at the shelter I volunteered at. That dog was a bundle of energy and awesomeness. I would have adopted her but she needed to be the only pet.

Indiana does purebred rescue as I volunteer for English Springer Rescue America. I saw that you live in Greenfield and if you are interested in adopting a purebred, go to www.sisaveapet.com. Those are some kill shelters and they get plenty of purebreds.

Neither of the shelters charges an intake fee for animals. One has a waiting list because its privately funded while AC is public. They currently have 80 cats... I don't know... she knowingly broke her rental agreement when she got the cats... I am just irritated I guess. That's why people like you guys exist. big grin

In other news... its supposed to snow soon and unlike a majority of people here I am excited. I love the snow and winter with snow is usually what makes me happiest. I cannot be sad when I see snow falling from the sky or when I am playing in it with my Isabelle.

Toodles for now!

I unfriended someone on facebook yesterday. She had two cats (six months old) and couldn't care for them anymore. She claims she tried to give them to the shelter and rehome them but no one wanted them. So she puts them in her car and drives far away from her house and abandons them... I was pissed. Poor boyfriend was trying to calm me down. Indiana... in winter... house cats... hoping someone takes them in.

Its happened... I have a foster I cant give up but the problem is the rest of my family wants to adopt her out. She is everything I am looking for in a dog. Smart, trainable, alert, focused and would make a great competition dog. I think dogster Asher had an effect...affect(?) on me because the dog has some issues that she knows a lot about but there is something special about this dog. I see every time I work with her. I just cant convince them. I need to move out I think so I can keep her. My life is taken an unexpected turn too. I met someone and he is amazing but he's never had a dog and I want his first experience to be rather easy(he passed the Isabelle test)... If its meant to be with this dog, then it will be.

My mom is taking the dog to her next training session and she's open to the idea. Blah... if we hadn't been hurt so hard by the recession, I could be living on my own and not with my brother and mom... Again... if its meant to be its meant to be. I just hope its meant to be...

Thanks for listening to the rant.

So Mr Buckles had breast cancer... extremely rare in male dogs and aggressive but we caught it early. Probably preaching to the choir but we wouldn't have known about the lump if my mom hadn't been brushing him... so there's another reason to brush your pups!

Just popping after finally getting my account fixed. party Same ole same ole for me. Except I quit my daycare job. I got tired of being signaled out when I wasn't doing anything wrong. Also got tired at how the lazy the other teachers were. The kids sat in front of the tv more than anything and they wonder why these kids can't pay attention. I feel so much more relaxed than I have in a long time.

Mr. Buckles, my fourteen year old foster, has a cancerous tumor under his leg. He's getting it removed Thursday. I hope that solves the issue because I will not put him through chemo or radiation at his age, just take comfort measures for him. I think it was found early though because he still acts like nothing is wrong. Still worried about him pulling through surgery though...

byes for now!

I love how its only 6 in the evening and people have been shooting off fireworks all day. My mom and I agree, the sale of alcohol and fireworks should be illegal on the fourth (not that it can stop people from drinking and shooting off the fireworks).

Had my birds outside today and when I went to bring them in, the stray cat my landlord has been feeding and taming was laying on the porch watching my birds. She wasn't bothering them so I left her watch. Unfortunately the fireworks scared her off, I hope she and her brother will be alright tonight... I hope to convince my landlord to catch the cats and get them spayed and neutered because there's a clinic in town that will do it for free with feral cats.

I had Isabelle at Petco today and she made friends with a Green Cheek Conure. The bird was not afraid of her at all. It would go the edge of the cage and try to attack her. Needless to say Isabelle was interested but once she got a good sniff of the bird, she was could care less. She was more interested in the budgies who she could scare. If only it wasn't a $400 bird and from Petco...

Slipping in really quick. Bad week for me between new foster puppy, brakes going out on my car and Mr Buckles being rushed to the emergency vet.

Bucks food and medication upset his stomach so much that gas built up in his intestine. Thankfully my brother was home when the bloody diarrhea started and we prevented the real emergency. He's still acting off though, not greeting me but we had to take him off the carprofen which is basically rimydal. Poor old boy.

Bed time now!!
