thank you thats exactly what i was looking for,
some lady at a gas station( i was siting there smoking a cigar and letn my dog have some water after a very short walk to the local gas station)
she sits there just watching us gets out slams her door and starts asking me why my dog looks de hydrated and why is she underweight(shes a shortie) is is 47-50 pounds on any given day
she has a tuck slightly tight skin(we run her alot)and you can see her 2 last ribs only slightly and this lady just assumes my dog isnt liscensed doesnt have her shots that im a bad owner that shes gonna find where we live and take my dog away..... my dog has all of that she was a rescue i did it the first week i had her shes even microchipped cause i love her alot.
its had me seething all week she claimed she worked with the humane society
but i saw no badge(she was in street clothes) ohh and as shes yelling at me about my dog being dehydrated she sticks her hand in the water a few times and trys to get my dog to lick her hand(my dog was geting aggitated cause i was geting pissed) and my dog was not having any of it this lady was nasty
she spills the water over then expsects me to run back in and get some more
hell no am i leaving my dog alone with your crazy ass.
