I have been absent....
Sorry about that.
My absence is self inflicted.
I have just been a bit down about Smudge and
have also had some issues with others when it concerns Smudge.
I don't want to have a big soap box sort of rant on here.
Every time I started writing what I wanted to say, I would end up sounding angry and
bitter. I hate that.
I don't want to bring anyone down.
I have struggled with writing this.
I like keeping my feelings about certain things to myself.
This is not easy for me.
I have had people in my life tell me that because Smudge is different, they don't like
being around her.
I have heard comments about how it is ridiculous to spend so much money on a
damaged dog. She is "just a dog".
I have heard folks tell me that Smudge is strange and her behaviors are the way
they are, because we have spoiled her so much.
I will admit to her being spoiled.
This is a good one.....Why won't she just settle down and act like a normal dog?
Umm...hello..she is NOT a normal dog.
(at this point I just want to ask.....Why are you asking me such stupid questions?)
I am sorry she does not fit into your perfect normal world. Where everything is
roses and sunshine...oh...and rainbows..
Sorry that is a little bitter and sarcastic. Ha ha ha..
Mostly (other than here) people think that Smudge is not worthy of life because she has
I do appreciate the fact that everyone in the blog world has been very supportive of
Smudge and I love that. Thank you to all of you!!!
I have spent a small fortune on this dog and I also have spent many hours in vet offices
because of this dog. I LOVE HER. I will do what I can to help her.
I would hope that if I ever had a disease or disability that someone would also take
care of me in this way.
I do not understand people that can just take an animal (or a person) and get rid of them
just because they are different.
What really blows me away is the fact that people would actually tell me that. That I should
get "rid" of Smudge and start over.
To those people I say....screw you.
I really do not care what you think nor do I want to hear your thoughts.
I could care less if someone thinks that I am spending too much time or
money on one of my animals. I work hard for my money and...I can do what I want with it.
I think those folks have too much time on their hands to think such stupid thoughts.
Leave me alone and find someone else to harass.
Find a cause that you can dedicate some quality time to.
Get a hobby.
Leave me alone.
Look at Smudge...does she look as if she is suffering?
Why is her life worth less because she has an issue?
I am thankful to have her in my life and will be devastated when she is no longer here.
Maybe I have her for a reason.
You would think that people in your life that are close to you, would understand how
you feel about things...I find that rarely to be true.
People are way to self absorbed to get it.
Much why I prefer to hang out with animals.
Spending time with animals is much better.
More fun and free.
I tend to make very bad decisions in my life at times.
(don't we all?)
Keeping Smudge is not one of those decisions.
Hanging out with assholes is.
So....there you go.
I am now back to loving life and looking forward to some creative ventures.
What happens, happens....
I don't believe in keeping an animal for selfish reasons.
I also don't believe in getting "rid" of one for selfish reasons.
Smudge....I love you and you are safe.
Ho ho ho.
I do want to say again....Thank you to all of you here that have been very supportive of Smudge.
I don't know what I would do without your wonderful comments and positiveness.
It really means so much.
Zippy in lights.
What happens when he runs away with the lights.
