Crazy people and my doggies

ok I admit it...I said I wasn't going to watch octo m0m but I totally did. It was like train wreck...you want to look away but you just can't. It was so totally boring!!! The voice over kept saying "and you are not going to believe what we got on tape!"....It was the birth. Why would I not believe that? It is not like she is a pioneer. That no one else has ever shown that on TV. Um I think I have seen that 1000 times. Other things that drove me crazy...She totally acted like she hated the attention but you could tell she LOVED it! Isn't she the one that wanted someone to pay a million dollars for her story? Then she tried to say she has nothing done to her lips. Really? Do you have a bridge for me to buy too? Then she started putting Kate down for getting a tummy tuck and just showing off for TV. Whatever...pot meet kettle! The one thing I felt bad for her about was her mom. Her mom was on her case and not supportive at all. I understand that she has made some bad decisions but she is your daughter after all. You can disagree with her choices but you should still try to be there for her and support her instead of going to the media and saying bad things about her.

on why she did it...She says she could not imagine them destroying her frozen embryos and that is why she transferred all of them. I can understand to a degree but have you ever heard of donation? There are other things you could have done. This was not your only choice and your doc should never have allowed this.

Oh and the other day on our local news they reported some woman says she is pregnant with 12 babies. WHAT!? Then they said that they don't know if it is true because the woman refused to have an ultrasound. UMMMM...then why are you reporting it? Isn't that just feeding into what this woman wants. Stop giving attention to crazy people. The news should be for....(and I know this sounds crazy) LEGIT NEWS!!! This is why we that really struggle have a hard time with people understanding how we feel. we get associated with crazy people!

Anyway, enough about octo mom and crazy people. Something is wrong with my dog Sammy. 2 nights ago he was laying down sleeping and then all of sudden he just let out this yelp that sounded so bad! I checked him all over and found nothing. Then he would not sit still for more then 5 minutes. He would lay down then get back up. Finally I gave him one of these calming pills we have for storms and such. they don't usually work but I thought I would give it a try. It eventually worked. He has been eating and going to the bathroon just fine but every couple hours he yelps out in pain. Yesterday we checked him over again and we found an area under is front leg that he has scratched to death! It is so bad so we but some salve on it that we have for Katie Jo but I am not sure if that is it. Nothing else seems to be the problem. This happened a couple years ago and we took him to the vet but they did not find anything. Sammy hates to go in the car and when we get to the vet he just cries and cries like someone is trying to kill him. The vet really can not get x-rays of him because he is such a wreck about it. Last time we went to the vet and he just gave him some steroids to take at home but once we got home Sammy was perfectly fine. Never to yelp again. So I am not sure if I should tramatize him and take him to the vet or if it is the thing under his leg and we will just keep putting some cream on it and wait for it to heal. I don't want him to hurt that is all I know. I think I will call the vet and see what he says. Usually they won't give any inbo without seeing the dog...which totally sucks! I really wish dogs could talk it would make this so much easier!

Yes, I heard that woman is not really pregnant with 12... may not even be pregnant at all. Crazy people is RIGHT.

Sorry about your pooch! :( It's so sad to see doggies in pain. Our dog stepped on something (dry grass?) and it imbedded in her foot. She was limping for two weeks! We took her to the vet and they had to sedate her to look at it. Two appointments and $325 later, turns out we should have just waited for it to get pushed out naturally. *eye roll* But we love our pooches and want to help!!

Imagine if they could talk, they would never shut up!! My cat Katie meows all the time. I'll be in bed reading and I hear her meowing all the way from downstairs and then it gets louder as she comes up the stairs and into the bedroom and then she looks at me like "There you are, I was calling for you!"

I think we would all get way too much conversation from our pets if they talked. But it definitely would be helpful when they're ill or in pain. I hope your doggie will be ok.

I am completely with you on all the stupid people stuff.

As for puppy - if it continues much past a few days, I would see the vet. Sorry. :( Do you want to borrow my vet? If your animal is his patient, he consults over the phone a lot. I love him.

Bluebird said...

Poor puppy :( The only think I would say is keep an eye out for infection - that's usually how we end up, so it's cheaper to just take them to the vet in the first darm place!

aw. Sammy sounds like he may have had a nightmare! Maybe he needs a stuffy that's filled with catnip/something similiar to that for dogs!! To sleep with at night...or maybe he needs someONE to sleep with...

The sore might just be a result from the nightmare! You know like maybe he dreamed something was crawling into his skin so because the nightmare felt so real he scratched and scratched 'in real life' just to try and get it out!

Idk that's just the first thing that comes to mind...

I never watched 0ctoM0m but now I don't need to...I only heard bad things about it...so yay! I'm not missing out...woot woot.

Aw, I hope your wuppy gets better. i would always get sick to my stomach when my dogs were sick/weren't themselves.


oh lord. octomom is ridiculous. there aren't many scenes where she's actually holding one of her babies. i think that bothered me the most. and then at the end she had the 8 laid out and she'd kiss them and put them right back down. i'd want one or two in my arms...maybe it's just me?

April said...

how can they say that it's 12 babies if they have not done an US? that makes no sense to me.

i totally agree about octomom. she makes me want to vomit sometimes!!

so sorry to hear about the doggie...i hope he feels better soon!!

I am so sorry to hear about Sammy! I know what you mean about illness vs. trauma of going to the vet. It is a tough call. I hope he is back to himself soon.

Yes - there are crazies everywhere. And they tend to be grossly fertile.

Cara said...

Jeez - I didn't even know she had a show...that shows what I know about media stuff.

Sorry about the dog - you have had a rough road this year!!

Octomom is crazy and I feel so bad for her kids. I hope her mom does support her, but I think she was saying that to the cameras so the world would know that this decision was completely her daughter's choice. I am probably wrong, but I would hope that behind closed doors that she puts things aside and helps her daughter and grandchildren.

Make sure they check your dog for heartworms. My dog had problems that they kept diagnosing and finally they ran a heartworm test and that was the real issue. She would lay there and yelp in pain for what seemed was no reason...not to mention other issues.

Good luck and I hope they figure out what the problem is.

I hear you on the stupid people on TV. I heard about the octomom show. Sounds like a fiasco.
Hope you figure out what's wrong with your doggy. Could it be having small seizures? They will sometimes make noise with that.
