Rant!! Since I hold it in due to "respect" for other people...
Oh who am I kidding? Screw other people and respecting them. I don't get respect. They don't deserve an ounce of my time, my respect, or my words.
But I'm going to rant about it anyways. I have a dog. That was not exactly what I expected, but I could have turned her away, rehomed her in seconds flat. Did I? NO. I kept her. Still have her. Fighting through every issue we have with her via excitement with other dogs turning her vicious towards "leash and walker", excitement to "chase the kitties", refusal to listen, inhaling her food... Oh the list goes ON.
Have I given up? No. Because I AM STUBBORN. But do I have a backup "what if it ends up not working out after all" plan? DUH. Only an idiot, a fool, would not make sure there is a secured backup plan if sh$% flies out the window. What if we do not get to the month of spaying her? She does, after all, need her shots first, which need to come first before spaying (no place will do it otherwise), and that takes over a two month span between shots.
So yes, a backup plan. Or do people really expected me to just HAND HER OVER to a dog ring aye ess ess wipe, or a backyard breeder? You, are truly brilliant, aren't you? Ignorance is NOT bliss. I've said it for years, I'll keep saying it.
Sure I'd love to spend thousands on my pets. I'd give them only real homemade foods certified for their species... Even their BREED if I could. I'm not magic, however. And I don't have a money tree. Lilac bush perhaps (which is eating my fence), but not a money tree.
