    I really am possibly, maybe, most certainly thinking about some type of something for my inability to control myself around morons - There is a pill - I can't post

    This morning was little Ms. Pootie's appointment for her spaying. I can only tell you due to PMDD I really wish it were me going in to have a hysterectomy. I have an appointment. with a specialist on the 21st - for a consulatation. I'm glad. I refused BC pills - and now they want to do ablation. I've gotten some good advice about that - ;) (Thanks SusieStar)

    So this morning - we go to the ASPCA. I got a free voucher for spaying. And they will give her the rest of her shots, rabies vaccine, microchip and worming for $40.00 - I donated $5.00 to the save the Pit Bull foundation.

    And as we are standing in line this man in front of me (huge) with a load of tattoos, neck, arms, in front of us with a beautiful male Pit. To explain the zoo standing in line with cats AND dogs at the same time creates - and the peacock wandering around is beyond my abilities - really. It was chaos.

    So this man is standing there and little Patootie is being a flirt. Butt up, tail wagging, down in front, little growls and big girl barks - and she is playing with this boy dog. And he's playing back. EVERYONE commented on how adorable she is. (proud G'ma) So this boy dog starts barking just a little back at Pootie. They are communicating and playing - NO BIGGIE. And the man takes his leather leash and swings up and smacks the dog with the leash. Not once, not twice - but three times and then he bends down and pinches him on the flanks. Then he slapped his haunches with his hand. Hard. Some people gave looks, some said nothing....and well you know me.

    So I thought about moving to the other line so his boy wouldn't get into trouble for doing NATURAL dog things. And belive me there were nearly 50 dogs and cats in line. NO ONE was really quiet. As I went to move to the other line - a woman with 6 cat carriers came in and got in the other line - so much for moving. So what did I do??

    I took Pooties leash - and swung it back like I was tossing it over my shoulder and slapped the man "accidentally" in the neck and back of the head, and he jumped. Let me tell you - IT stung. He jumped and grabbe the back of his neck. And I said "OH MY GOSH - I AM sorry - DID THAT HURT?" and he said nothing. I did see a couple of people snicker. Jerk.

    Lucky I wasn't full on PMDD -He'd have gotten muzzled, neutered and a rabies vaccine.

    I pick lil Ms. Pootie up tonight after work - Poor baby she was SOOOOO happy to go somewhere with Grandma. And what a PORKER - 30 lbs. At 14.5 weeks!!! SHe's going to be a BIG GIRL. Takes after her GGgrrrrrrrrrandma.

    Was he standing in the line to get neutered? You should have suggested it.

    The other thing - while I'm at it

    This is supposed to be a reduced fee spay and neuter clinic for people who can't afford to go to the vets - like DUDE (since Pootie is his).

    And I pulled up in my 18 year old SUV and there in the parking lot were the nicest trucks and cars you have seen. I guess I know now how the rich stay that way. Seriously these were cars in excess of 40k. Not every one but the majority.

    There was also a lady 'curbing' her dogs because she had lied about feeding them and as if on cue - they barfed up breakfast. Food does NOT look like that 13 hours after eating it. They were very angry with her - and questioned her again and again while cleaning up the mess about when REALLY was the last time she fed them. They even told her there is a chance the dogs could die if they had food or water after 6pm the night before and she INSISTED she had not - they took them but I bet they don't do the surgery. Moron.

    Well now I have to say that was a nice move. Sometimes people don't think. Even in public.

  7. Oh, Star! That is great! Even if it wasn't a "normal" dog thing for the pit bull to be barking, come on, to hit it with the leash! Some people don't belong being pet owners.

    I have advocated for education for dog owners for YEARS.

    Cute side note: Last night Dude asked if he could spent time with us - WHA? Okay, before we leave he lays on the floor with Pootie and says to her "Okay baby - tomorrow you are going to go with Namma and have an operation so that you can't have kids. (long pause - longing look in each others eyes) and then "BECAUSE KIDS ARE A PAIN."

    I thought - OKAY over excitable teen boy - KEEP THINKING THAT THOUGHT.

    LOL! Way to go! Ohhhh.....don't get me started on the nice cars in the parking lot & "needing" the reduced fee. I'm glad I'm not the only one that notices those things. Just another one of those things that makes my blood boil sometimes. But, at least they were there getting the spay/neuter....I always "try" to find the positive. Once again....way to go....glad tatoo man got a leash to the neck to grab his attention on "accident" ;)

    I hope lil' Pootie's surgery went well and that she's back home sleeping it off by now. My girls were really pitiful that first day and then practically back to normal the next!

    Was "Mr. Exemplary Dog Owner" there when you picked her up? If he was, I hope you managed to stomp on his foot and whack him with your purse while you had the chance!

    totoro Mom? What's a GFG?

    Way to go! I love things like this, standing up for others!!! I am the mouthy one out in public... no really! I am surprised I haven't been knocked out for telling people to knock it off... kids, animals whatever!
    We need more advocates. Spay and Neuter!!!
    husband and I neutered a stray cat we found once, the neighbor took it after.
    I hope the little princess feels OK tonight.

    Well my exciting life NEVER ends.......

    I go to the spay-neuter clinic and WHOM do you think is RIGHT in front of ME? (I bet he thought OMG there's that B with the leash and NOW she's got an umbrella).

    So I'm standing there waiting, looking at all his ink and from the back room I see a man step forward and ask "Who are you here to pick up?" and he said the dogs name. Then the man steps forward with his paperwork and motions him off to the side. I am sorta hard of hearing but fair at lip reading and spot on with body language. This man was getting reamed. I heard enough dribs, and motions to put it together. They GOT him on tape. Which means - they got ME on tape too. So I'm figuring - handcuff me George - I'll do a night in county for assault. But the jist of the conversation was 'Here - these are training classes (hands paper), and dont' ever hit your dog with a leash or your hand or pinch him. Because you WILL get arrested - I am an officer of the law.

    WOOOOOO HOOOOOOOO. And just as I suspected the ink blot turns around after getting his dog and glares at me with the same expression the tattoo of satan on the back of his leg had. So I shot him one back. I'm sure mine was more scary - lol.

    Still a jerk - and I felt sorry for his dog. So I get up to the counter and the man says "And you!" points finger - then winks and walks away. I had my reply ready - The devil made me do it. And then point at the ink blot. lol.

    Pootie is well - not so "flirty" but OMG she wants food so bad and only 2 TBS and 1/4 cup of water for tonight. And OMG aren't puppies the smartest about finding water sources EVERYWHERE in your yard? ARgh.

    I didn't even KNOW you could GET a tongue in a planter saucer.....
