I just wanted to stop in and say hi and I hope everyone is doing okay.

I haven't been online much lately (not that anyone noticed probably, hehe), I've been preoccupied with trying to move into a new house... Well, it's not even close to being ready for us to move into yet, but I've been doing planning and packing anyway off and on.

Also my next door neighbors bought two puppies that they have been seriously neglecting. They leave them outside all day and night with no water or shelter and I haven't seen anyone feeding them... So I've been going over and petting them through the fence and talking to them and giving them food and water. I'm thinking about calling the animal rescue league and reporting these people but I would really like to adopt them or at least one of them. I'm just worried about them, it's getting so hot and two month old puppies should NOT be outside all day, especially without food or water! It just makes me so sad and I want to run off with them and give them the love and care they deserve. Dogs should be your friend and companion, not a freaking lawn ornament!

Sorry, I just needed someone to vent to...

How is everyone else doing? Feel free to vent about anything if you need to! :)

Hey back.... , yea thats bad to negelct the animals, Im not really a dog person, but I hate to see any living thing suffer, JMHO, but I would report the situation like you said....

Im kinda new here, feeliing a little better having vented some of my issues (check out my other posts, if you want) Its not that the issues are any better, but there is a strange sense of release now that I have put them down and other people have read them... made me feel a little wierd at first, but now its like, people read my stuff, they were sympathetic and didnt think of me as freaky.... wow. I have felt a little empty today, but not necessarily bad empty - just like I released some stuff..... cant find the word..... , and I have managed to be pretty productive at work.... which has been rare lately....

anyway.... take care.... have a great day....

I know what you mean about not being productive at work... Where do you think I am right now? Haha :)
This forum is definitely a great place for release and support. If it wasn't for here, I probably would have never taken the step to seek out treatment, and now I'm even taking a yoga class which was completely out of the question before with my social anxiety... I love coming here, everyone is so great. It's sad to see so many people suffering, but at the same time, nice to know we all have a place to go for help when we need it.

Glad you've found us and I hope you continue to post and find the support that you need :) No one will think you're weird- we're all in the same boat here!

I would call animal control in your town and report the puppy abuse. Your neighors may get upset with you going onto their property if they find out you have been doing it. Even though you are helping it is still trespassing.

Oh, I'm not going on their property- I'm on my property, just petting them and giving them water through the fence. Someone has to do it.

Hi Hardspace
I am glad you are doing good.
A new house is very exciting! I envy you.

I am not sure how the neighbors are...but if I was you I would knock on the door and inquire about the puppies.
I would also say,I just notice how hot it is and I think they might be knocking their water bowl over.
That way you are not saying that they are neglecting them right out,but you are telling them that you notice they are not taking care of them.

And then you could throw in that you would love to have them if they were getting rid of them.
