What's not to love? So TAKE CARE OF HER!

What’s not to love? So TAKE CARE OF HER!

So Pit-Girl came back today while I was at work.

I am SO very angry, I can hardly see straight, however. (And this is NOT because my nose is all out of whack; it’s just out of joint. 😦 )

So I get a text from Johnny, shortly after noon, who tells me Pit-Girl got out again, and went under the studio porch and tried to get into our back yard. Only she got stuck. Seriously stuck.

Johnny had to pull the stairs to the back door of the studio away from the building and then had to dig her out. I mean literally…Dig. Her. Out. Are you freaking kidding me? It took him quite a while to free her, as she’d wedged herself in there pretty well. He said when he pulled the stairs away, all he could see were her nose and one paw. Are you freaking kidding me????? Once he had her in our fenced back yard, he put a leash on her and walked her back home. He banged on Pat’s doors and, of course, NOBODY bothered to answer, so he let her back into her the yard. Then he tried to fix their fence FOR THEM, so that she wouldn’t get out again. Of course, the yard was trashed, with garbage everywhere, because what is a lonely puppy to do but tear up the garbage because she wants to play…

He said he figured out she was under there by the blood curdling howls that emitted from under the building.

I’m in Goldsboro, NC. If you (or anyone you know) are in the local area and think you might be able to give this baby a good home? Send me a message or leave a response below. I think we have a foster family lined up the next time this asshole’s dog gets out. She is still young, and can totally be socialized. Because the next time this girl gets out? She is leaving my neighborhood.

Now, as I have mentioned before? We have seven dogs and have had them for ten years and nobody ever gets out. Thanks to Pat’s inability to keep her puppy in the yard, my fur kids figured out how to get under the steps in the back (because scent) and we spent the rest of our daylight ensuring that ours can’t get out by sawing lattice strips and screwing them over any possible exits. THANKS, ASSHOLE!

Sadly, that’s not going to keep PitGirl from burrowing under the front, so I have half a mind to present these dick weeds with a bill for the materials needed to keep their dog out from under our building. This has never been an issue until now. Everyone else in our neighborhood are RESPONSIBLE pet owners. (Jerk-ass.)

Why do people get pets that they just don’t give a shit about? This pisses me off more than I will ever be able to convey in words on this blog or anywhere else.

WTActualF is wrong with people these days? I mean…Jeebus…

Until next time…

    As angry as you are (and you have every right to be) I am (slightly) less baffled and angry at people who get a dog and then ignore it and let it get loose as I am by people who get a dog and CHAIN it to a short chain in their yard and ignore it. So please tread lightly, cause I KNOW it would kill you if complaining about the dog getting loose resulted in the owner chaining it up to ignore it.

    That being said, someone in my neighborhood used to let their little dog run loose (yes we DO have a leash law) and it would regularly come damned close to getting run over. So finally a neighbor ( I swear to God it wasn’t us) took it to the shelter, claimed it was their own, gave it a false name, and “relinquished” it to the shelter. Then kept an eye out to make sure it got adopted (which it did). The same day that they took it to the shelter they told the neighbor that they had accidentally run over their dog and since they didn’t want their (as in, the owner of the dog) kids to see that awful sight, they had gone ahead and buried it for them. So, um, I’m just saying. Seriously, you know “Pat” wouldn’t come over wanting to dig up her dead dog…….so……

    • OMG, Susan, that is BRILLS! I need to tell Johnny…I am at the office (after having spent my morning digging this dog out from under my studio again). There will be an update post later, but I suspect the poor little thing is sick.

  2. Oh I wish I were closer and didn’t already have four!

    Glad you and Johnny are such good people! That little dog could have died under the house if it hadn’t been for you two! Thank you!!

    • Girl, you know us…you know our love of animals. We are furious. This could have ended badly. Johnny and his tractor get the credit, as I was stuck at work, but I am soooo lining up foster and potential homes. It’s pretty childish that I want to egg Pat’s house and finish it off with a good toilet papering. But at least that is only a misdemeanor. My mind goes straight to felony.

  4. I don’t blame you for being angry. I would be absolutely livid.
