I love her more than I love anything. But THIS FUCKING DOG.

This pet shaming photo is from a destructive incident a few years ago. Short story: there was a storm. I was not home. She panicked. Oh, that dog you see there? She fit through that hole. She was IN the spare room, and when I got out, she was OUT of the spare room.

I posted earlier this week how I was having a Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. Well, lol to that. Yesterday was worse, and today was worse still. Work is AWFUL. I was emotionally DONE yesterday, and today was just painful. My coworker and I both felt like we were one issue away from tears all day. I ran errands when I got off, and also got some ice cream, cheese, and beer, because obviously, right?

Something is afoot when I get home. I can see my roommate's door is open. Her door stays shut, because her demon HellBeast dog stays in a kennel in her room while she's gone. HellBeast and PollyDog HATE each other. Then I hear it. "Chirp!" The smoke detector is going off with the "low battery chirp of doom" for the fourth time in as many months. Third new battery. That noise makes the dogs come unhinged. I find her BigStupidDog hiding in her shower.

I call my roommate to ask if she latched her door, because right at that moment, her room contained two extra dogs. And they were all behaving! Stockholm Syndrome? She laughs, and I go upstairs to find the batteries I bought, and I see another fucking hole in another fucking door. PollyDog made a SMALLER hole in my bedroom door, and had gone both in and out at some point. I become hysterical while my roommate tries to calm me down. It's a 20 dollar door, her dad can install it, it's fine, everyone's fine, nobody is hurt, her dog destroyed a 3,000 fence two weeks ago, we're good.

I continued to have a shitty day, and then PollyDog found something in the yard. She and BSD were fixated, so I thought it was an animal, and started shooing them. PollyDog then started chewing on a squeaky toy, so I felt stupid. It was just a toy that made its way into the yard! OMG A LIVE AND MOVING SQUEAKY TOY THAT IS NOW MISERABLE AND IN PAIN AND OMG DROP IT!

And that is why I killed a mouse baby fucking rabbit with a shovel today.
