Just came back from a show my friend, Tim, hosted where actors got up and introduced the most embarrassing clips of their careers. It was hysterical. I went with Ricky and Tommy, two of the greatest guys in the world, and we had a great time.

Went to Macy's today to buy a blanket for the new couch so Bob and I can cuddle on it. He is a master cuddler. And let's face it. What's better than cuddling when all is said and done?

Tomorrow is a training session at the SPCA which I am really looking forward to. It is an eight hour lesson on how to socialize dogs who have been displaced for a long period of time. It is unfuckingbelievable to me that some people will drop their dog off at the pound after having it in their home for eight years because they're moving or some other reason. How can people accept unconditional love from an animal for so long only to dump it off? Unfortunately it happens all too often and these dogs suddenly go from a warm stable family to a cage in the pound. Hopefully that is where I can make a difference.

Time for TV. Nighters.

Jeff wants a dog SOOOOO bad... (he likes big, older dogs... hmmmmm... I sense a pattern.)

I just have never been an animal person... I wish I could accept having a dog, but I just can't seem to wrap my head around it.

I am so with you on the dog dumping topic!! I adopted my Akita when he was 4. i'm soo saddened to not know how he was raised, how his first 4 years of life were. was he abused? happy?ignored? etc. He so lovable (just not to other animals), and protective...but at the same time a big ole lug. My cat was a stray cat that i saved from my own backyard, and although she gets on my LAST nerves, i would never dump her. And i saved my Munch (my icon pup)from neighbors who had no clue how to raise a dog and gladly handed her over to me (this was in another country, where dogs are routinely lunch), brought her all the way back to the US...had her since she was about 4 weeks old. I LOVE animals, can't see how people treat them like shit and don't feel guilty.

You, Ink Princess, are a good woman! I would never support the puppy mill industry. There are way too many unwanted and abandoned animals out there who need home and hearth. We adopted Bob when he was five (he's 13 now) and it has been the greatest pet experience ever. People want puppies but don't have a clue that it is like having a baby. Constant care and attention is needed. Adopting an older dog not only saves a life but it also better assimilates into your home.

Thanks! **blushes** I went through so much with Munch. having her at such a young age, i truely AM her mother. i raised her just about from birth. Her eyes and ears weren't even fully in use yet, super stumbly, etc. She almost died a couple times, and *I* was the one who saved her. I didn't take her to the vet, cuz they know NOTHING there. (i was in the Philippines). I nursed her back from the brink of death TWICE. She hurt her back legs, and couldn't walk for a couple months (and this wasn't even one of the near death times), i helped her do EVERYTHING, eat, drink, held her while she peed and pooped. and you should have see me when she took her first steps, i was CRYING, bawling, soooooooo happy and proud. The near death situations were from food poisoning ( i think it was my EVIL ex-mother inlaw...who couldn't stand to see me happy) and the other was a fever, lethargic thing, where i don't remember exactly what happened, i think it was from getting wet and being cold. both times there were moments where i was watching her, expecting to see her take her last breath at any moment. I saved her. (sorry, god complex coming out..LOL). this was ALL happened before she was even 6 months old (she'll be 5 this Dec/jan...don't know her exact birthdate).

Excuse me while i go hug the spoiled pup! :)
