Goddamn it.

I went outside to feed Tweak today. After hearing horror stories about BARC, we decided to put Tweak on craigslist instead, ask good questions and such of the potential adopters.

Tweak wasn't in the back yard. E. said something about the house handyman taking Tweak back to his owners. I don't think she realized what that meant until we couldn't find the dog in the backyard. I'm still not sure she knows what it means.

I know what it means. It means that an owner who simply didn't care about their dog, who kept its collar too tight and let it roam the neighborhood streets, now has that dog back in their "care". It means that dog's injuries will likely never be looked at, never diagnosed and never fixed.

It means V.'s grandmother likely just didn't give a shit about the dog, either. The handyman undoubtedly told her what he was going to do, even if it was in passing.

Today is a boots-on day, and I wish I could use them as I'd like right now.

Poor Tweak!

Yeah. I'm not pissed because I wanted to keep the dog; I didn't. I'm pissed because instead of being with a good family, he's with someone who just doesn't care.

I came over here to read movie reviews and now I'm just all pissed off. A-holes...

pigfuckers as your tag seems very appropriate. cos that's what someone is to abuse the dog, and what someone is to have taken the dog back to get abused more.
