Ugh. A girl I've known since junior high just posted this on her FB page:

Quote:
I just will never understand people who buy dogs instead of rescuing one of the 5,000-10,000 dogs that are euthanized in the US each day. If you have bought a "pure bred" dog as a pet (not as a working dog), could you please tell me why? Were you uneducated about the dire situation of homeless animals in this country? Did you just not care?? Seriously, what can we of the rescue community do to persuade you to SAVE A LIFE!? I just struggle to understand why someone would pass up the opportunity to rescue another living soul from death.

I kind of want to say something, but then I think it would be better to roll my eyes and move on. I haven't spoken to her since college (we actually ended up at the same college and major, and were sort of frenemeies). A few other people commented, and she made obnoxious comments to each of them.

Since I just used the word "frenemy", that's probably a sign that I should let it go. Her moral superiority just makes me want to

sometimes I take the bait and say something as tactfully as possible.

sometimes I don't. Just depends on my mood. Can't say I wouldn't be thinking about it. If you do, please take screenshots and share. XD

So I took the bait and responded, explaining how I was looking for specific traits in a dog and getting a puppy from a rescue is a total crap shoot as far as energy level, drive, etc etc. She actually agreed with a lot of stuff I said. I was pleasantly surprised. I think her point is that people who want a generic companion who is friendly and good with kids should really look at rescue harder. People who want a dog for sports are fine going to a breeder to get what they want. Not that I necessarily agree (pet people can go to breeders, and sport people can go to rescue), but that's a pretty reasonable point of view compared to what I was expecting.

Cohen hurt her foot somehow today. We went out for a lovely long walk in the woods where she had a blast and was a dream to be with. We came home, she ran around the back yard for a minute, lay down, left the room then came back and... she was limping. I have no idea how it happened. It seems like it's one of her toes that's hurting her but it may be further up her foot. I'm hoping it's a sprain.

The poor thing is trying to sleep, but her foot is in the air, shaking. Each time she relaxes a bit and her foot rests on the ground it jars her awake.

I'll be keeping close tabs on it, but it really upsets me to see her uncomfortable like this.

I'm so unbelievably sad.

Talon's Reactive Class ends Sunday, but they decided to offer a Reactivity 2 Class, which goes over walking past their triggers and continues to the next part. Talon REALLY needs this class, it's absolutely perfect for him. We've made so much progress in his current class and I love his instructor. BUT they are offering it in the beginning of March (The sunday after his current class ends) so people can just continue on without any delay.

The problem is there is just no possible way I can afford it right now. I could definitely pay for it in the very beginning of April, but no way for March. The next time they offer the reactive 1 class isn't until September, so the 2nd part would be October IF they offered it.

I thought about asking them if I could pay in April, but I can't think of a reason they would do that. Than I thought about asking my sister for a loan, but again I don't know if that's going to happen.

It's stupid, I'm just so bummed.

I would explain the situation to them and ask if this is a possibility. The worse they can say is no. The classes we used to go to used to make special arrangements for on-going students as long as it was kept confidential and other classmates weren't told. Give it a shot!

This!!

Or, if you have the interest and inherent skill, something amazing could happen like it did for me and they could ask you to assist with some classes to work off class payment. That's how I got my job over a year ago with the training company I work for- I had to swallow my pride and email my trainer to tell her we had to drop out of classes because I couldn't afford to continue at the time. She emailed me back and said "Non-sense, how about a job instead?" and the rest is history!

What do you have to lose?
