I am curious, though - did she still expect you to come over and watch her dogs after chewing you out? That would take some chutzpah...
LOL, yes, I'm pretty sure I looked much like this:


I assume she still wants me to take care of her dogs. She left all huffy without talking about her dogs again. When I said yes she said she was very grateful because she doesn't think anyone else will watch them for her. I don't want to to do her any favors, but if she leaves assuming I'm taking care of her dogs I cant leave them without food and water. Or maybe I should just feed the Rottweiler and let the mutt starve. That's what I do, right?

She is a strange one. This isn't the first time she went to all sweet to trying to bite my head off in .0000561 seconds. I have to say this was the most confusing time, though.

I had zero retorts in my head. There's hypocrisy, and then apparently as I learned last night there's the kind of hypocrisy where the person has her head upside down and the crack is talking. o.0

Assuming this was a semi-rational rant and anything she said made sense, I don't understand why when you have a purebred you're a snob. If I have a purebred it's because I love the breed itself, not because I like to skip from purebred to purebred regardless of breed.
Millie is my absolute heart dog- and a mix, you know, the dogs I hate. She goes everywhere with me and batshit crazy woman knows it. Or did she forget I've had Millie for 10 years? I guess so. It's awfully hard to talk to someone who isn't making any sense.

It's awfully hard to find a reason to talk to someone who isn't making any sense

LOL! The only reason I tried at all was to defend myself, but then again, from what? I didn't do anything she hasn't done (besides adopt a dog from a shelter). And no, I didn't bring that up because I feel I should be praised for adopting. This is the first time I actually ever even got a dog from a shelter. Other people spend their lives adopting/fostering dogs that are on the euth list and truly do save their lives. But I definitely had a lot to say about it when I was told I adopted the wrong dog for very selfish reasons. All jokes about crack aside, I seriously think she was high. I didn't notice until her started bulging with anger, lol, but they were awfully red and glassy.

What a weird thing to go on about! I mean, you still are adopting a dog out of a shelter regardless of any other wonky information she is trying to throw in there. I say good on you, if you provide good healthy homes for your dogs... I already love you for it

Some people don't have a brain.

I got told recently that I am clearly not an animal lover because I look a breeders websites sometimes. Yeah, the three rescue dogs at my feet may disagree with you there

I agree with the crackhead theory!!! WTF? -___-

Sometimes, I feel like desperately uneducated, uninformed people will just go on a rant & make no sense simply because they want to SOUND smart and have something to rant about. It has nothing to do with you, it's just her trying to feel morally superior. I bet she walked away from that thinking she taught you a valuable lesson! LOL. I would talk to her and straighten her out, as it's important that you stand up for yourself, and it sounds like she needs to hear some realness. Let her know that YOU adopted your dogs, saved their lives from certain death. SHE bought her dogs, supported bad breeders, and brought even more badly bred dogs into the world! SHE has no right to lecture you. Tell her you'd be happy to watch her dogs as long as she doesn't try that again, and you love dogs regardless of their breed or where they came from - you're just particular about what dogs you want to own for life!

I was telling some one I don't know what Fozzie is, how he's a mutt from a rescue, and they went on this longlonglong rant about how "mutts are the best! they are the healthiest! they live the longest! that's why I have a Puggle! you're a racist if you only want a purebred!" And I said I disagree. I love my mutt & it's great to rescue a mutt if you just want a loving pet... but purebreds exist for a reason, because they produce consistently, you know what you're getting, and a well-bred purebred is going to be extremely healthy. And I'm getting a purebred from an amazing breeder for my next dog. They glared at me like I was a traitor/racist and walked off. Oh well.

The way I look at it: A rescue dog is a rescue dog period! Whether it is purebred or a mixed breed, it makes no difference. Adopting one or the other is still saving a life, providing the dog with a good home and freeing up space for another dog to have the same chance.

Sometime people just need to nitpick at what others have done in order to justify to themselves that what they have done is the "right thing", regardless if it is or isn't.
