i know i promised [myself] that i would take care of myself
but tonight i’m jst too tired to eat and wait until the food’s digested bfore i can go to sleep.
i wanna go and sleep now, but after such a tragedy i feel a bit too ruffled-up to sleep.
it was a black dog with a red collar.
the fact that the dog has a collar is of course, probably another indication of how people don’t take care of the animals that they call their pet.
apparently, this negligence has caused this dog to kiss my butt.
i should be thankful that it’s not a bite.
but i was really shaken-up by this whole ‘dog-chasing’ action that i screamed and broke down on the street, jst outside my gates [and alerted the row of houses. some people came out and chased it away].
but alas. i still cried my hearts out and had to make a statement.
i was whimpering and saying things like “please take care of your dogs” like a few times and things like “why” and “i don’t need dogs” while crying on that street.
it was so darn dramatic.
but bcause this wasn’t the first time that those dogs came near me and my residence, i felt like it was a major disturbance.
if i have the opportunity and energy i could have filed a report with the local authority under the LGA 1974 as a case of ‘nuisance’.
but bcause i’m jst a hopeless student who’s currently struggling with almst evrythng, that wouldn’t be the case. for now.
now, apart frm being traumatized for a good chunk of my upcoming lifetime, i have to figure out a way to not feel like shit evrytime i leave my gates to go to work and evrytime i leave work to return home.
once again i HAVE to say :
DO NOT TAKE AN ANIMAL FROM SOMEWHERE TO BE PUT UNDER YOUR CARE IF THAT ANIMAL IS NOT CARED FOR. LEAVE THEM AT THEIR PLACE OF ORIGIN OR THEIR INITIAL LOCATION WHERE THEY COULD BE CARED FOR BY PEOPLE WHO CARE INSTEAD OF BEING WITH PEOPLE WHO THOUGHT THAT THEY CARE BUT IN REALITY NEGLECT THE NECESSARY CARING OF THEIR ANIMALS AND CAUSES THESE ANIMALS TO BECOME A NUISANCE AND A THREAT TO THE PUBLIC.
if you cannot care for your own animal, then put them in the care of the parties that care.
you don’t have to become an animal and let your animal be a public threat and nuisance to evryone.
some animals that are neglected raises an even bigger issue in terms of public sensitivity.
i have my religion and beliefs and dogs are not animals that we can touch randomly.
take care of your dogs.
