and can joe say "omg i had a blast!!!" he is filthy dirty and covered in mud cuz apparently lhasa's are as moronic about schlumping thru the mud in high speed as are pitbulls. we had to do 4 turns around the long grass field just to get him down to dirty instead of mud caked. ahhh but joe is born to be a farm dog. he slid into percy's stall to say hello and then joined the others in eating spritely's grain that she just has to toss out in the aisle.
jolie was running with a six foot pointy stick. and she has to run with one end in her mouth so she has a full six feet to poke out someones eye with. i switched her to a cedar branch that had dead cedar stuff still on the end and she spent a good hour sweeping the field and the gravel barn road with the end. she lost interest when she flew into the loafing shed, threw her branch around and then grabbed a mouthful of sand when she tried to pick it up again. sand is one of the few non edible things according to pitbulls.
tyra finally broke skin on phoebe. she caught her with her tooth on a particularly vicious phoebe flyby. even tho phebes was fully at fault, i might have felt sorry for her had she not snarled at me and very clearly told me she was going to bite me when i tried to clean it up for her, so i told her fine. die from blood poisoning if thats what she wants.
someone should hurry up here and rescue phoebe, she is being abused.
the other utter jerk tonight was swinger. i am so mad at him i could spit (and i think spitting is like the grossest thing in the entire world!) i was making their dinners and ellie was having a fit at the barn door when all of a sudden i heard her scream. greg brought her in right away, and on her shoulder within a mere minute or two is one freaking massive bruise. that prick swinger bit her! his pain is all gone, cuz i made sure of that for him and bam he turns right back into a freaking jerk. i told him if he does it again, i will withhold ALL of his magic feel good meds and he can go right back again to feeling crappy and being nice!
poor ellie, he bit me once too and he really hurts. i gave her an extra apple and told her i was so sorry he such a mean and nasty horse and i would take his meds away if he hurt her again. i figure when he hurts, he is too busy trying to deal with it to think about being mean but when he feels good, he just hurts someone else instead because he can.
not all animals are nice, some are just toads.
