Puppy is doing much better and is now 3 months old. Goes in soon-ish for his third round of shots. He's especially sassy and noisy so we will have to work on that.

Otherwise... work work work. Hyrule Warriors comes out on Friday so that's pretty awesome.

The good news is Fipsters is back home AFTER A WEEK at the vet hospital. He'd been in ICU until I want to say Wednesday when he was transferred to supportive care and I talked to the vet about picking him up Saturday evening because two / three days off to monitor. He's himself again and can eat, drink, do doggie business all on his onesies.

The bad news is he still has tremors, especially when something stimulating is going on and he walks around like a drunken man. He's supposed to be quiet which naturally means he's even more in a FUCK YOU I DO WHAT I WANT WHEN I WANT mood. The next step was that he was going to start Adult Doggie Training but since this is going on I don't know how much to push it versus just letting him recover.

So yeah. Fun September.

i just don't even

I shouldn't have to feel like shit because I asked for my dog to be kept on leash and to stick to a specific diet.

I shouldn't hear that they don't "want to deal with the attitude" when the whole time I'VE been the one guilt-tripped because I make my mother feel bad for something she had total control over and decided it was too much bother to use common sense and be careful two nights after her dog had severe seizures

Like all it damn well took to avoid this was for her to put a leash on. ALL IT TOOK. I am not asking the world - I am not asking her to bend over backwards. I suggested we put leashes on our dogs because we can't control what our neighbors do but we can sure as hell control where our dogs go.

MY SISTER even took my side. Which is rare as she's the main mediator and the only one my mother will accept criticism from.

But no - I have an attitude and am mean and nasty and hateful.

And right now I feel fully justified.

So after all three dogs getting very very ill within one week

And then my mother's dog getting very very ill and convulsing this week

And me saying - repeatedly - that we need to be very careful to keep them on leashes and only in our yard and fussing when my mother REPEATEDLY let them out to run around without supervision.

My mother had the most wonderful idea to take my young puppy out without a leash and with the other young puppy who plays a lot of monkey see monkey do things

And naturally the puppy finds whatever is making the others sick

He started trembling and going into convulsions this afternoon. He's currently staying overnight at the vet's to monitor in case he has any seizures. The vet is hopeful he'll be fine tomorrow but it's mainly concern for brain damage / etc.

I feel like I could shout at the top of my goddamn lungs and no one would goddamn listen to me until we have a dead animal.

I checked the scoreline a little after 4 to see a Muller goal which - okay, statistically speaking Germany has a very good record that when they score first they tend to win.

So cool.

Twenty minutes later I check livescore on my work computer

And we're 5 up.

And I literally have to run upstairs and check in with a coworker and he and I have to run next door to confirm it.

And he has to look at the screen twice and I have to look at another person to be like 'really Really?"

Like guys.

This is Germany. Germany tears teams to shreds on a perfect day and on a good day they will at least dominate.

But 7 goals? Against Brazil?

That's literally unheard of. Especially in a semifinal.

Klose has his goal and that's the important thing because Klose earned it, and comms have for the most part shut up about Howedes being a liability and Jogi has switched back to a 4-2-3-1 now that we have Schweinsteiger and Khedira back in relative fitness.


This is surreal.

I am still not sure I am making it up.

Like guys

fivethirtyeight was giving Brazil a 78% chance of winning the whole damn thing
