I've been waiting for over 2 weeks for a person that bid for my fish on Aquabid. He has chosen the 4 fish he says he wants, but still hasn't paid me. I've given him 24 hours to pay me or my fish are going to be offered again on Aquabid and he's going to be banned from bidding on my future offers.
When I've bought fish on Aquabid, I always pay as soon as I know I've won! I expect the same from buyers of my fish.
Anyway that's still my rant.

Yes and this is why I am SOOOO against giving animals as gifts, except in specific circumstances.

In fact, we have a bunny at the shelter right now; pretty sure he was someone's Easter bunny who got too big and messy, and became inconvenient.

The only cure for ignorance is education, and bullying or attacking someone is no way to educate them.

I knew someone years ago who gave their three year old grandson a rabbit for Easter. They only had it for a few days then they took it back to where they got it. They kept it in a cardboard box on their front porch. They're lucky it didn't get out or that something didn't target it for an easy meal.

I asked my parents to buy me a bunny when I young but sadly soon myself overwhelmed at how to take care of it. I was afraid I would do something wrong, so for it's safety we took it back. I loved it but I knew it would be better off than in my care.

I'd love to buy one now that I'm older and have access to knowledge on their care but I have no place to keep a cage that large or room for it to run around like it should.T_T

My dog threw up a bit of his breakfast 30 minutes ago, b-lined it for the door and had some runny poop, and now he's got gas.

Wouldn't be so much of an issue if he wasn't so needy right now. He's laying as close as he can to me and just staring at me oblivious to the miasma coming from his butt.

Try having a dog inhale a whole pumpkin roll and then puking her guts out on the living room carpet, moments before company is due to arrive.

Or better yet, having the same dog eat tinfoil, then puking up this lovely coffee ground color vomit, and having to go to the vet for medicine to help pass the foil and soothe her irritated bowls.

Ouch!
That sounds like it had to hurt!

My beagle once ate a muffin whole..paper and all! It was a big muffin! She also tried to eat an easter egg that fell on the floow, with its shell on, and i practically had to choke her to stop her from just swallowing it!
Just this past spring, she took a flying leap for my boyfriends tuna melt, and left him with just crust!
