okay, let's get started.
*cracks knuckles*


alright, so i don't own a horse of my own, but there was extremely sweet mare that i used ride up until i moved the across the country. before i moved, the people who own her (she is boarded at the stable where i rode) payed another couple that only knew the basics about horses to ride her. they would come almost everyday, and when i was riding and they came (sundays), they would wait until i was done, and then take her out, which is fine. but, over the next few weeks, i noticed some major changes to the mare. whenever we rode by a gate, she'd take off loping towards it trying to go home. when we took her on trail rides, she would stop suddenly, almost as if she were telling us "no. i'm done, let's go home." which, my fellow equestrians know the pain of trying to move a horse that refuses to go. and this, honestly, actually made me kind of sad. she apparently wasn't a very "child friendly" horse until i started riding her, and i apparently gentled the mare. but, the person who owns the stables, they actually told me that the people were letting the mare get away with everything. when she refused to move, they took her home. when she tried to run out the arena gate, they'd put her back in her stall, just like that. one of last times i was barrel racing on her before i left, she fled to the gate just when we were galloping around a barrel. every equestrian knows how dangerous that can be.

i know she's not my horse and all, but this just ticks me off. i loved this horse with all my heart and when i moved, i it would only get worse. when i came back after around six months (i cried every night for about a week after we left), i could barely brush out her mane without the mare stomping a hoof. i understand that she isn't my horse and that i don't have a say in what her owners do, but i hate how this is happening.

whew, very sorry for the vent. i haven't actually had a place to let any of this out ;-;

So, I have pet rats and I wish my family would stop saying that they're disgusting, because they aren't. I think my rats clean themselves almost as much as my cats, if not more lol. Plus Wendi and Bluey are sooo sweet and would never bite anyone, they don't bite even of my hands smell like something yummy.


Oh my god I HATED this. I loved my old rat, Lily, she was my first pet and she stayed with me for 5 years (which I think is more then their average life span) and she'd scurry across the floor following me. But people like my friends, or especially my mom, would scream when they saw her and acted like she was a pest. Lily was white and tan, had beautiful fur, and such a sweet personality.. yet my mom called her a 'gross rat', kept thinking Lily would bite, and refused to let Lily go into the kitchen or any bedroom but mine ;-;

My mom nags me about never picking up and handling my tarantula, when in reality I'm just scared I'll drop him. Tarantulas are very delicate babies and can die if they fall from a tall enough height, and pink toes (his species) are very skittish and like to jump ;-;
Live long and prosper.

If ONE MORE PERSON gives me horrible bird advice I am gonna loose my bananas on em. Somebody keeps telling me to put LISTERINE, yeah, the mouthwash, on my parrot. "it'll stop his plucking".

Yeah, cus' he'll be dead as a doornail. Can't pluck if you're dead. Holy crud the things people will subject animals to. (No, I'm not putting any crazy stuff on my beloved parrot. He plucks because of trauma before I got him and he may never stop but I'm not going to put mouthwash on my bird)

Do. Not. Pet. The. Service. Dog.

I joke I need a fly swatter to swat the fly by petters who won't quit petting, talking to, etc my service dog despite the patches that say to not touch her and that she's working. Plz just stop it I need the dog to be not being grabbed by everyone because I just want to buy milk thanks

And guess what? Tarantulas in captivity aren't defanged genius and I don't like getting in arguments over this

Whenever people come over and I already have my geckos out,
People will scream like they are going to die and run away from me. A tad of an overreaction, especially since I have leopard geckos? They will probably just fall asleep on your hand.
Ohh, and when people recommend sand/uvb lights. Thanks, I’ll pass!

Oh, don’t even get me started on my dogs. I have two rottweilers and people constantly avoid me on the street when I’m walking them. They are so small! One is a puppy and the other is a runt. I’ve had false reports on them by my neighbors too.. Ugh. :’) They are seriously the sweetest things, except the puppy still is pretty hyper.

    i have a doberman and oh my, my. ive had people tell me i cant control him (as he walks peacefully - on leash - beside me). i had a lady tell me to get him out of her neighborhood because he was aggressive and out of control. i had never met this lady before and he was literally sitting beside me while her twenty dogs barked and lunged at him.

    i had a man shove his dog into my doberman’s face. my doberman bared his teeth and the man yelled at me. this man litersally stopped me and dragged his dog in front of mine and then got mad at me and told me i shouldnt have an aggressive dog with me.

    the same day as that happened with the man. children screamed and ran sobbing to their parents when my dobe didnt do a thing but walk. they tried to hit him with their bikes and skateboards which he was afraid of. one person jumped off a cement thing and landed about 3 inches behind rocky and rocky whipped backwards and the person yelled at me.

    people are literal idiots when it comes to typical scary dog breeds. my doberman has never acted aggressively to a person. people love to tell me i cant control him when hes not out of control?? its odd.

My dog is a mix with strong attributes of a pit bull, Rottweiler and German Shepherd. She is the sweetest thing and loves to paw at your leg until you give her a hug. She had a bit of a rough past and is very reserved and shy. I took her to the dog park and let her off leash (in the designated area) she started playing with a beautiful husky puppy, frolicking around and racing each other. This woman turns around and starts slapping my dog and screaming at her to "get". I immediately rushed over and grabbed my dog by her fluffy scruff and tugged her away. I'm tall [removed] and she called over a police man and claimed me and my dog attacked her. The police man quickly learned the truth and escorted the woman out of the park and banned her.
I had been taking riding lessons for a few weeks and was getting on the horse for the first time. I was doing great, my instructor was leading me around a small paddock then this little girl jumps in the paddock and the horse rears. I managed to hang on and was desperately trying to tug the mare away so that she wouldn't hurt the little girl (big mistake). I got tossed narrowly missing the fence. It turns out a woman was trying to sign her up for lessons yet they have a policy on 10 and up. The woman threatened to sue saying it was my fault for not knowing how to handle the horse, yet she couldn't handle her daughter. I haven't gotten on horse again and its been a year [removed]. But on a happier note i'm starting lessons up again soon!

When people act like they know everything about your personal pets..like...just...no. DONT FEED HIM TABLE FOOD. DONT PUSH THE CATS AROUND AND SCARE THEM . LIKE HOW WOULD YOU FEEL? THESE ARE MY ANIMALS, DONT TOUCH THEM OR GIVE THEM ANYTHING OR EVEN ACKNOWLEDGE THEM WITHOUT MY PERMISSION CAUSE YOU OBVIOUSLY DONT KNOW KINDNESS

*earlier i posted a swear word with stars i apologize to the community of cs i wasnt thinking clearly and i hope i can be forgiven.

Oh. My. God.

Okay, so I have this friend
Every time they come over, they pet my dog, and carry them, then get upset when the dog doesn't like strangers. They keep acting like "Oh, this is my dog now, don't do this, don't do that"
This is my dog, they have been with me for a while and have grown a very strong bond to me, I think I know what I'm doing by carrying my dog the right way that she loves.
