The aggravating cherry on top of this aggravating situation is the emotional blackmail. Nothing gets me into a zen rage faster than that. Whether YOU choose to shoot your dog or not has nothing to do with ME, but let's make this all my fault, mmmmkay? *rageface*

Ugh hate people. Assuming they've had the dog its whole life... how does someone give up so easily...

Doc, you've gotta put her down! I've tried nothing and I'm fresh out of ideas! What? You won't euthanize her? What am I supposed to do, just DESTROY THE ENTIRE EARTH WITH NUCLEAR BOMBS?

Two dogs were surrendered today with porcupine quills in their faces. Owners were just going to leave them be because they couldn't afford the cost of having them removed. Like whattttt.

Blah. Was just petting Juno and noticed the tiniest of tiny bump on her head. I'm a little bit surprised I even felt it, that's how small it is. But it's THERE. I'm hoping it's just a bug bite or some other little irritation that goes away, but I'll be watching it... I just worry about these things too much with boxers.

Hope it turns out to be nothing.

Bleh. Just a really long, stressful day. I got roped into doing this sci-fi/fantasy conference today, and I got to meet Tamora Pierce (which was cool) and talk a whole lot about Buffy (also cool) but it was exhausting and I lost a whole day of studying for my finals next week. I also ended up stopping at home, and the dogs are all being turds. Journey is in standing heat, so she and Newton are rather obnoxious (relegated to different areas of the house, but protesting loudly). Cricket's tail splint was supposed to come off yesterday, but she's being really bad about letting us take it off. I don't if it still hurts or if she just thinks that it will, but she DOES NOT want anyone touching it, and was struggling mightily when we tried to hold her still to do it, to the point where we had to leave it on for fear of hurting her more. I'm not really sure what to do about it at this point.

Thanks, I sure hope so too! Juno is not allowed to have lumps. I've already had this discussion with her.

I've been so sick that Adam bought me pseudophedrine, which I can't have, and my appetite has been so lacking that he told me to get the morning bun at Starbucks I was eyeing this morning, when I don't eat grains. I'm done being sick.
