Chels again!

I AM SO PISSED OFF.

Why? Because Maisie has a bacteria infection that would have been CLEARED by now if everyone had just STUCK TO THE PROGRAM like I thought we all were.

Bacteria likes moisture. Practically everyone knows that. So when your dog has a bacteria infection on her paw, you HAVE to keep it dry no matter how much of a pain in the ass it may be. That means when you let the dog outside in the morning or at night when the grass is wet, TAKE THIRTY SECONDS AND WRAP A FREAKING PLASTIC BAG AROUND HER FOOT. IT IS NOT THAT DAMN HARD.

I slept on the FLOOR to keep this from happening. I didn't realize that I was the only one who was honestly concerned.

Apparently my mom tried to put a bag around her foot one morning and my dad said no, don't do that, the antibiotic is enough.

GIVING THE DOG AN ANTIBIOTIC AND THEN LETTING HER TRUDGE AROUND IN THE MUD OUTSIDE IS KIND OF LIKE TAKING A DIET PILL AND THEN EATING AN ENTIRE CHOCOLATE CAKE BY YOURSELF. YOU DON'T DO IT. THERE IS NO MIRACLE PILL.

Dad was pissy about the dry paw rule from the beginning, but I can't believe he would willingly risk that. HE DIDN'T EVEN TRY. IF SOMETHING IS GOING TO BE INCONVENIENT FOR HIM, HE GIVES UP ON IT WITHOUT EVEN THINKING ABOUT THE CONSEQUENCES..

Maisie doesn't deserve to be the victim of a HALF-ASSED JOB.

She sits at my window and whines because we can't go on walks until she heals. And that kills me, because if dad doesn't GROW UP, Maisie won't be healing anytime soon.

THERE IS BLOOD ALL OVER THE FLOOR BECAUSE OF WHAT HE SAID.

I've calmed down since last night, when I figured all of this out. I was shaking... I felt like crying because I was so frustrated.

I mean, not putting a plastic bag on her foot before she goes out because you're just LAZY is one thing, but WATCHING SOMEONE PUT ONE ON HER FOOT AND THEN ANGRILY TELLING THEM TO TAKE IT BACK OFF AGAIN IS BULLSHIT.

WE CANNOT ALWAYS DO THINGS THE WAY HE WANTS TO DO THEM.

MAYBE WE SHOULD ACTUALLY LISTEN TO THE PROFESSIONAL VETERINARIAN INSTEAD OF BLOWING THINGS OFF BECAUSE THEY'RE "RIDICULOUS" OR "IMPOSSIBLE."

And all of this is coming from a guy who watches Animal Cops and says that he can't believe how cruel people are to their pets.

Oh my god. I can't believe him sometimes.

And the sad part is that he doesn't even know that I'm mad at him.
