U R what U eat, drink, breathe, think, say and  DO
Was suppose to work today. Typically my day off. Than find out that the new dog they just got was neutered yesterday. Yea, no I will not be grooming your new dog that you just got within the week and a dog I never groomed before a day after surgery!  Jeez people and come on vets! Give out all the info!

Had another inspection  yesterday. Out of MIL's pocket, if it passes we still need the reextention to pass. Which is annoying and may not get approved. Also the sellers lawyer is fucking out of country. I just want this all to be over with and I want this damn house, i want to say I have a forever home for me my son and my dogs. I want the stress of having to constantly move and finding places that allow my dogs and decent schools for my son to end. I want to sit and stay in one place.

Chris had a phone conference with the school the other week. It didn't go very well. We got a letter sent home with Sky from them the other day with the apologizing for how it went. Which is nice of them. It wasn't a mass letter, it was an individual letter from the principle.

Went to bed last night with a migraine. Had dream I was at Warped Tour. Woke up from dream around 3am with migraine still. Go figure I was going to warped tour with a migraine lol best place to be! Luckily by the time I woke up to get Sky ready for school it was gone.

Chris is sick. I'll be sleeping on the couch in hopes of not catching it from him. He came home from work early today due to being sick. What sucks is tomorrow we have to drive out to naperville to pick up Sky's christmas photos. Also his mom is going to the dr's tomorrow for some tests if they find anything she'll be stuck in the hospital tillo after Christmas. So hopefully they find nothing wrong.

I got a box of chocolates from one of my newfie clients. :) And the whole job got a giant cookie to share, which may or may not be stale by friday when I go in. I gave my secret santa her gift already. I got her an Alice Pop figure and a wizard of oz bookmark. I wonder who has me? And when I'll get it? I hope its not a gift card. :( Since the limit is $10 that'd be boring lol.

I got Chris the original kindle for christmas its the only one hes still showing interesting in since he won't take my Fire and says Sky has that one now. I'm sure he'd like the Kindle Paper weight but I didn't have that much cash in my pocket. I got him a flower infused teapot too. Other day he pointed out a cast iron one he wanted at the mall. So that can be on next years list or his birthday. You can always have a collection of tea kettles! Just like I said.

yea I had more to say earlier but waited till I opened up the laptop and now I don't remember. Oh well.

Some people are about "me me me". After so long it gets old.Seeing it constantly!! I don't ask for a pity party with the things I have been though so I will not ever give it. I don't care the situation. I don't blare every given detail out eaither for that exact reason. After excuses for so long it gets old. Those are the people I choose* not to have around me. No matter what you do or say its always about "me". 
they can't get over themselves. Its rather sickening. sometimes I'd like things to be about me to bad, things arent oh well i won't cry about it and if i do its not  newscasted. Sometimes with life
no matter how bad things are no matter what the situation without details given which I remain not to go into, its time to get over it. You can always get over it for just a few when it comes to certain special ones. Youth is something to treasure. Something you want to protect. Something that no matter what you try as hard as possible to make it the best. life IS hard. Boy do I know* that. People should also never* tell people they wouldn't understand when they do not even have the slightest clue of what the other has actuelly seen and been through. just because i have never told you everything doesn't mean i haven't been through something or suffering from something. I don't air it all out like I've stated because once again I don't need your pity nor theirs. I'm sorry sometimes things come to certain situations but usually theres only so much one can handle some way or another. friends should be there for others but at the same time you can tell theres nothing there. its a one way. I don't want to be friends with someone who does stuff for attention but once they get it they make a big scene about the attention they get pretending it is not what they wanted in the beganning. Not just one situation but many that has been viewed. bring certain things up to an individual won't always matter. its just easier this way. people shouldn't take it to personal, doesn't mean your a bad person nor that I'm saying anyone is. just sometimes its like Deal with it! thats life! Grab your cards and play as best as you can!
I hope things go wonderfully for some, and they realize the great things and people they do have in their lives. Some wonderful people there. Don't miss out no matter what! Even if it can't be injoyed personally. You'll regret it. Also no one should get upset, i don't owe anyone anything. If we were closer yes.

How Could You  
10:44pm 25/01/2008
U R what U eat, drink, breathe, think, say and  DO

if u read this it'll seriously bring tears to your eyes

A man in Grand Rapids, Michigan took out a $7000 full page ad in the paper to present the following essay to the people of his community. It really touched my heart and I hope it will yours too.

How Could You?
By Jim Willis 2001

When I was a puppy, I entertained you with my antics and made you laugh. You called me your child, and despite a number of chewed shoes and a couple of murdered throw pillows, I became your best friend. Whenever I "was bad," you'd shake your finger at me and ask "How could you?" -- but then you'd relent, and roll me over for a belly rub.

My housebreaking took a little longer than expected, because you were terribly busy, but we worked on that together. I remember those nights of nuzzling you in bed and listening to your confidences and secret dreams, and I believed that life could not be any more perfect. We went for long walks and runs in the park, car rides, stops for ice cream (I only got the cone because "ice cream is bad for dogs," you said), and I took long naps in the sun waiting for you to come home at the end of the day.

Gradually, you began spending more time at work and on your career, and more time searching for a human mate. I waited for you patiently, comforted you through heartbreaks and disappointments, never chided you about bad decisions, and romped with glee at your homecomings, and when you fell in love. She, now your wife, is not a "dog person" -- still I welcomed her into our home, tried
to show her affection, and obeyed her. I was happy because you were happy.

Then the human babies came along and I shared your excitement. I was fascinated by their pinkness, how they smelled, and I wanted to mother them, too. Only she and you worried that I might hurt them, and I spent most of my time banished to another room, or to a dog crate. Oh, how I wanted to love them, but I became a "prisoner of love."

As they began to grow, I became their friend. They clung to my fur and pulled themselves up on wobbly legs, poked fingers in my eyes, investigated my ears, and gave me kisses on my nose. I loved everything about them and their touch -- because your touch was now so infrequent -- and I would have defended them with my life if need be. I would sneak into their beds and listen to their
worries and secret dreams, and together we waited for the sound of your car in the driveway.

There had been a time, when others asked you if you had a dog, that you produced a photo of me from your wallet and told them stories about me. These past few years, you just answered "yes" and changed the subject. I had gone from being "your dog" to "just a dog," and you resented every expenditure on my behalf.

Now, you have a new career opportunity in another city, and you and they will be moving to an apartment that does not allow pets. You've made the right decision for your "family," but there was a time when I was your only family. I was excited about the car ride until we arrived at the animal shelter. It smelled of dogs and cats, of fear, of hopelessness.

You filled out the paperwork and said "I know you will find a good home for her." They shrugged and gave you a pained look. They understand the realities facing a middle-aged dog, even one with "papers."

You had to pry your son's fingers loose from my collar as he screamed "No, Daddy! Please don't let them take my dog!" And I worried for him, and what lessons you had just taught him about friendship and loyalty, about love and responsibility, and about respect for all life. You gave me a good-bye pat on the head, avoided my eyes, and politely refused to take my collar and leash
with you. You had a deadline to meet and now I have one, too.

After you left, the two nice ladies said you probably knew about your upcoming move months ago and made no attempt to find me another good home. They shook their heads and asked "How could you?"

They are as attentive to us here in the shelter as their busy schedules allow. They feed us, of course, but I lost my appetite days ago. At first, whenever anyone passed my pen, I rushed to the front, hoping it was you that you had changed your mind -- that this was all a bad dream ... or I hoped it would at least be someone who cared, anyone who might save me. When I realized I could not compete with the frolicking for attention of happy puppies, oblivious to their own fate, I retreated to a far corner and waited.

I heard her footsteps as she came for me at the end of the day, and I padded along the aisle after her to a separate room.
A blissfully quiet room.

She placed me on the table and rubbed my ears, and told me not to worry. My heart pounded in anticipation of what was to come, but there was also a sense of relief. The prisoner of love had run out of days. As is my nature, I was more concerned about her.

The burden which she bears weighs heavily on her, and I know that, the same way I knew your every mood. She gently placed a tourniquet around my foreleg as a tear ran down her cheek. I licked her hand in the same way I used to comfort you so many years ago. She expertly slid the hypodermic needle into my vein. As I felt the sting and the cool liquid coursing through my body, I lay
down sleepily, looked into her kind eyes and murmured "How could you?"

Perhaps because she understood my dog speak, she said "I'm so sorry." She hugged me, and hurriedly explained it was her job to make sure I went to a better place, where I wouldn't be ignored or abused or abandoned, or have to fend for myself -- a place of love and light so very different from this earthly place. And with my last bit of energy, I tried to convey to her with a thump of my tail that my "How could you?" was not directed at her.
It was you, My Beloved Master, I was thinking of. I will think of you and wait for you forever.

May everyone in your life continue to show you so much loyalty.

The End....

A note from the author...

If "How Could You?" brought tears to your eyes as you read it, as it did to mine as I wrote it, it is because it is the composite story of the millions of formerly owned pets who die each year in American and Canadian animal shelters. Anyone is welcome to distribute the essay for a noncommercial purpose, as long as it is properly attributed with the copyright notice. Please use it to help educate, on websites, in newsletters, on animal shelter and vet office bulletin boards. Tell the public that the decision to add a pet to the family is an important one for life, that animals deserve our love and sensible care, that finding another appropriate home for your animal is your responsibility and any local humane society or animal welfare league can offer you good advice, and that all life is precious.

this was a sad story for this lil girl, so i'd like to share it, she deserves it

"He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion."

Safey Dog Rescue was inspired by a small white Chihuahua that i named Safey.

One day I was looking at the paper and saw an ad for an older Chihuahua for sale,

now normally I DO NOT even call on those ads but I decided to that day and was

so blown away by the lady on the other end that i had to go and see the dog.

I was told on the phone that the reason why she was getting rid of her was because

she could no longer make any money on her and that she was all bred out.

I could not believe that this lady was so outspoken and cold hearted about this poor little girl.

When i showed up I was amazed to see 130 chihuahuas and the smell was horrifying

and it almost knocked you over once you came in the door. What I saw that day I will never forget,

cages and crates stacked on top of one another and they were filthy with feces and urine

and out back were so many dogs trying to get my attention and jumping up at me.

It took this lady over 30 minutes to find this little dog and when she did my heart broke,

i saw this little emaciated white dog that was shivering trying to stay warm on a pot holder

and when she held her up all she did was stiffen up as to not be used to human touch.

I took her of course and paid the lady $75.00 for this precious girl. I know that

there are rescuers out there that would disagree with what i did but I knew

that I couldn't live with myself if I left her there so i took her.

It took me 3 baths to get most of the smell off and poor thing would not move.

I named her Safey because she was finally safe with us and she would never have to

worry about anything ever again. One day after i dropped Safey off at the vets to get spayed,

even at 10 I think they should be spayed for their health even though I was told

she was 5 years old (yeah right) i got a phone call from my vet saying that she had cancer,

which was brought on by mammary tumors due to the over breeding. My heart broke!

this poor thing was finally free and now had to go thru all of this so of course we did the surgery

which involved spaying, mammary tumor removal, all of her teeth exept for 5 had to be pulled,

ear mites, and trimming her poor nails that had grown into her paw pads. But i have to admit

that the worst thing was finding out that this poor thing had been debarked. I was so angry,

puppy millers do that to these sweet dogs so they don't have to listen to them bark all day long

and usually it is by shoving a pipe down their throat and rupturing their vocal chords

(anything to save a buck so they aren't out any of their profit).

After the surgery she came around so much and would love on you and sit in your lap

and was part of our family. We knew that the day would come when her quality of life

was no longer healthy and we would have to make the decision to let her go

and that day came on October 21st of 2005 after only 6 short months of freedom.

It was the hardest decision I ever had to make but i knew that she was no longer happy

and living a good life.

The lady that I got her from called herself a "hobby"breeder but in my opinion she was a puppy mill

and for those of you that dont know what that is just go to www.puppymillrescue.com

and see for yourself what these poor things have to go thru in life. If you buy a dog from a pet store

you are getting one of these dogs that are forced to breed over and over until they are no longer needed,

living their lives in cages with little if no veterinarian care at all. There is little you can do

to shut these people down except STOP buying from them.

If you are looking for a dog please try a rescue group or go to your local pound,

there are dogs that are killed daily simply because there is not enough room for them at the pound.

I rescue the dogs that are getting ready to be put to sleep for either lack of space

or for a simple case of kennel cough. I dont do specific breed rescue just small ones

but somehow most of them end up being Chihuahuas and that is fine with me.

I think Safey is pointing them in my direction from above :)

Please open your heart and home to a homeless animal that is just looking

for a lifelong companion and a warm place to live and endless hugs and kisses

and I promise you you will be rewarded over and over.
