    I'm looking at boxer breeders.

    I wasn't supposed to want a boxer as my next dog - however far away in the future as that might be.

    The biggest vent about it is that I can't seem to find happy medium. The breeders who's dogs I think are prettiest, don't really have breeding practices that I enjoy. And the breeders that I think are badass and do all the right things and do super cool things with their dogs, I don't find the dogs as attractive. I'm finding the "European style" breeders really, really appealing but uggghhh I don't like the look! Maybe I'll just have to get over it if it means that I get everything else that I want.

    I wasnt supposed to "want" an ACD as my next dog but it looks like thats where things are going, since that breed is a "comfort" zone to me & the breeds I have "tried on" havent fit quite right, I mean they are the right "size" persay, like that wouldd fit into my life, I just dont feel "it" with them. like I do when I look at or think about a good ACD.

    so maybe this is fates way of telling me I am meant for an ACD LMBO

    Rumor likes to chase and attempt to catch bees. Free toy that never stops moving. Perfect. The bees hang out up in the street near the mailbox, which isn't a problem. There is very rarely anyone who drives by, especially since we're at the end of the road, but I heard the bus coming so I called her to the grass and grabbed her collar. I'm standing there, mail in one hand, bouncing crazy dog's collar in the other as the bus circles around. I let go and let her resume after the bus had turned around, but the bees had disappeared. I pointed to the mailbox and told her to look, since they crawl in there, and she proceeds to eat the mailbox. Wut.

    I just found a piece of paper on my desk that says simply "1 3 46" and I have no idea what it means. Why do I do this to myself? I hope it wasn't important. :p

    Better hang on to those, just in case you have to type them into a computer to prevent the end of the world :)

    My friend's birthday is tomorrow. His girlfriend (also my friend) is organizing some party event type stuff (even though he didn't really want to do anything.) First of which is beer pong Friday.
    NO.
    HOW OLD ARE WE.
    MOST OF US ARE AT LEAST THIRTY.
    NOBODY IS TWENTY YEARS OLD.
    ENOUGH.

    Saturday night they are going to a bar. Fine, I can do that. I feel like I should go. But I really don't want to. I have zero desire to watch everybody try to get my friend hammered because LOL birthday u should be puking tomorrow. I would like to see a few mutual friends, but the bar is loud and crowded and doesn't really allow for us to talk like I would like to, so what's the point? I'm going to be busy all day working on my house so I'm going to be tired. I have other stuff I would like to be doing. I would like to go to bed at a decent time!


    And also in the back of my mind, I'm pretty sure none of these bitches would show up if I were having a party.

    I don't think I'm going to go. Social obligations be damned. The favor NEVER gets returned. So boo.

    Yes my dog is friendly, yes he would like to be petted.
    but your hands are gross and I don't know where they've been so I don't want you to touch him.

    Please do not pat my dog as he walks by you. HE JUST GOT A BATH TODAY!

    I need one of these monkeys

    This is way too hot :(

    Granted, it's 82 degrees, but my poor Oregonian soul was not made for this weather. And the next two days will both be 88 degrees. ummmm MY HOUSE HAS NO AIR CONDITIONING.

    Giant headcold. It's in my ears. My throat. My eyes. My nose. Allergies on top of it. Can't help but be a bitch today. Not making me feel better, though.

    Also, cat decided it would be a wonderful idea to chase a stingy thing. Got stung. Cat's paw looks ridiculous.

    Zander's blowing his coat in chunks. He also looks ridiculous, as does the entire house.

    A bottle slammed into my nose on the bridge and now it is swollen down to the tip, with a large bump at the top of the bridge where it hit my nose, and starting to bruise. Ow. >_<

    Ugh my cat is driving me insane.

    Now that he's back on kibble he's like, on a hunger strike. He acts like he's starving and he's up on the counters getting into things and he chases after you into the kitchen like FEED ME but he will not eat more than a couple morsels of his stupid food. :mad: At first I thought maybe he was just having a hard time transitioning back to kibble after being on raw for the past year. But no, he will happily sneak his way into the dog food and snack on that. I had him on a venison formula so then I thought, okay he's never had venison before, maybe he just doesn't like it. So last night I exchanged that bag for a chicken and salmon formula. I think he hates this one even more. So I'm going to go back AGAIN this weekend and exchange for another brand entirely I think.

    But since being back on kibble, he's actually POOPING so no going back to raw isn't really an option. And since he has IBD + a history of urinary blockages, I'm being careful about the foods I put him on, so it limits my options. Otherwise I'd just put him on Fromm and be done with it lol.

    I mean good God cat, if you're hungry then eat!! He never used to be finicky. It shouldn't be this complicated.

    I realized today, that at just about every job I've ever had, in the relationship between the boss and myself, I've had to be the adult. Most of these people are 15+ years older than me.


    GROW THE EFF UP.
