I am sorry for your dog that breeder might have hurt him. You need to have a serous talk to your dad.

Not necessarily, a reputable breeder just breeds for health. They breed champion show dogs (since their traits are desired) an do genetic health testing
A back yard breeder doesn't mean that they physically harm the dog.
Lol omg a serious talk with my dad.
Well. I'm not his mother so. xD

We got down our christmas stuff and I found this ornament I made two years ago of Malachi's paw.

Hey guys. It's been awhile since I've been online.

So my parents had me go to a counselor. And I was really nervous at first but I feel really happy now, and I really like her. We talked about like practically my life story and it got to talking about how my dad takes away animals from me when he is mad, and she told me that it's the opposite of what should be done. She said that I should go back to the shelter so now I get to go every weekend again! And she was kind of disturbed when I told her about what happened to Teeney & she told my mom that doing something to emotionally hurt me is not going to help me.
So anyways, I don't think I'd get another betta even with my dad understanding these things just because I'd still worry that one day he'd get mad and would disregard her advice and it'd happen again.
But I have been looking into possibly adopting a hamster as a pet, wether or not my parents will approve of that, I'm not sure. But since my dad would see more value in it than he would in a fish then I feel it'd be okay.

Other updates on buddy... He is 6 months old now. On Monday HES going to the vet to get bloodworm done, and next month HES getting neutered & has some baby teeth that need to be removed.

Good to see you again Teeney. I am glad you got into therapy. It worked wonders for me. I got taken out after I showed enough improvement and have done better. It's going to do you some real good.
