Horrible storm rolling through, nickel sized hail. Cut to my Sally Dog, who is terr-i-fied of storms. Like, you can hear her teeth grinding from another room. *sad faces* She has a "baby" (a squeaky duck) that she "rescues" when a storm comes. (She grabs it and hightails it to my shower for Safety) She has two babies now, a squeaky guinea pig is the newest plush addition to her fake family.

I just witnessed my dog make a Sophie's Choice. "Which one? The duck i've bonded with for two years, or the newest child? Can I have another? Am I going to die? *cue the orchestra* She was in my shower whining. I brought her other baby to her, the guinea pig, she TUCKED THEM UNDER HER, and lay down, shivering.

Are you kidding me with the sorrow and motherly protection?!?! Oh, Sally Derg. They aren't really your children. (Also, it is still hailing, so she won't come out for snorgles or anything.) *SAD FACE TIMES A JILLION*


The abandoned child. Who, but a mother, can understand the difficult choice in choosing who will live, and who will lay on the carpet in the living room?

Brothers from another mother - back home where they belong. Next to the shower and my husband's dirty socks.

She's been in the bathroom with them for two hours, now. PATHETIC! (Also: d'aww.)

Oh, Sally. That really is heartbreaking. Poor puppy!
Feb. 5th, 2008 07:25 pm (UTC)
(I broke the rules and let her come up on the bed with me with her childrens. *g* Poor little sad pup...)
Feb. 5th, 2008 07:28 pm (UTC)
I just laughed out loud at your dog's misery. The "Sophie's Choice" got me.

I'm so sorry.

I am so going to Hell.

I think I want to MQ this too.
Feb. 5th, 2008 08:17 pm (UTC)
hahaha, Oh, I was totally laughing and "aww, puppy!" at her the whole time. It's RIDICULOUS. (Go right ahead, if you want.)

Awwwwwwwwwwww! That is WOE x A MILLION. Poor doggie!
Feb. 5th, 2008 08:17 pm (UTC)
My woe cat icon cannot express the level of WOE. She's just a big ol' pathetic bag of lovings.
Feb. 5th, 2008 07:35 pm (UTC)
Oh, Sally Derg, how she breaks my heart with her babies. :((((
Feb. 5th, 2008 08:18 pm (UTC)
I KNOW!!! Lee, GRINDING her teeth. Like, someone crunching walnut shells. WAAAAAH, DOG.
Feb. 5th, 2008 07:41 pm (UTC)
Jesus, that poor guinea pig, now certain to go through life knowing that it's second best.

I hope you got a rolled up newspaper and gave Sally a good beating for being such a terrible mother. I mean holy crap, that guinea pig was just a newborn, how the hell was it expected to stay alive on it's own? Shittest mother ever!

Feb. 5th, 2008 08:19 pm (UTC)
See, I'm seeing the "glass half full," here. Now, the guinea pig is PRIMED for me to lure her away from the safety of her mother. Pills, drugs, pimping her out... She'll be my best earner, you watch.

(But yeah, she FAILS as a mother. I keep telling her, too.)

That has got to be the cutest thing I have ever heard!
Poor pup!
Feb. 5th, 2008 08:20 pm (UTC)
(It really is. Part of me is sad, and the other part of me laughs at it.)
Feb. 5th, 2008 07:57 pm (UTC)
Love love love it when doggies and kitties do those (good) things that we associate with humans…particularly when they take care of babies of other species or befriend those that should be their natural born enemies and such.
Feb. 5th, 2008 08:20 pm (UTC)
(Her BFF is our Siamese cat. They go to bed together, and Hope - our cat - likes to be groomed by our Sally. D'aww.)

Oh that really is sad. Your poor dog, she must've been beside herself with despair. What a horrible choice for her.
Feb. 5th, 2008 08:21 pm (UTC)
She whimpered and thumped her tail when I brought Miss Guinea Pig to her, and she tucked her right under her like a mother hen.

Feb. 5th, 2008 08:08 pm (UTC)
Oh, poor Sally. People who think dogs don't feel things deeply are just kidding themselves.
Feb. 5th, 2008 08:21 pm (UTC)
AGREED. I've known an animal that *didn't* feel anything for other animals/family. <3

(zomg, she totes got an extra treat and lovings for being the most pathetic 80 pound creature on earf.)
Feb. 5th, 2008 08:23 pm (UTC)
Oh Sweet Sally! I'm such a suck, this nearly brought tears to my eyes.

See, my dog just would have stood there and barked. And barked. And barked. And barked. Are we seeing a theme here?
Feb. 5th, 2008 08:29 pm (UTC)
Oh, she only does that when the children don't go to bed like I've told them. (She's totally Nana from Peter Pan.)
Feb. 5th, 2008 08:24 pm (UTC)
Feb. 5th, 2008 08:28 pm (UTC)

Waaaaaaaah. (and the tiniest of hees)
Feb. 5th, 2008 09:36 pm (UTC)
Poor thing! ;( My dog would've tried to get both of them in her mouth at the same time.

Right now, none of my dogs have a noise phobia, but one of my others did. Melatonin was amazingly helpful for her. You can google for a little more info. There's also a product from Ark Naturals called Happy Traveler that helps some animals. I've used both and had better luck with melatonin
Feb. 5th, 2008 09:36 pm (UTC)
Also, though. So adorable, you know?

Ooohh, Sally! This hurts my mama heart. I've seen my cat hoarde my daughter's My Little Ponies, but that's really more of a "behold my spoils--MINE!" sort of thing that an altruistic, baby-saving thing.

Poor ol' honey!
Feb. 5th, 2008 10:36 pm (UTC)
Hahahaha!! But let's be honest: that cat is plotting world domination, starting with the sparkly horses. :D

(The storm's gone, so she's checking on the kids every few minutes, now. Gotta love those shepherds...)

WAAAAAAAAAAAAAH. Poor puppy! My dog is scared of storms, too. She crawls up in my laps and shivers until an hour after it's over.
Feb. 5th, 2008 10:37 pm (UTC)
Isn't she pathetic?!?! She has been getting lots of attention, now that the kids are home. The girls let Sally know they found her to be most brave. :)
(Deleted comment)
Feb. 5th, 2008 10:38 pm (UTC)
She snuffled all over the guinea pig, too, checking her out to make sure she was all intact. Hahahaha. Such a goofy dog. <3

Meanwhile, Darthanne and Hope are all *streeeeeetch, yawn, turns over, snore*
Feb. 5th, 2008 10:41 pm (UTC)
(here from Metagquotes)

Your story is ADORABLE! Poor little scared doggie.

and my goodness! You have a Malinois! At least, she looks like a Malinois. She's a pretty girl! (Sorry for the totally random spazzing- my boyfriend and his dad are both nuts about Malinois, and it's kinda rubbed off on me. :D Plus, I hardly ever see them around, so I get excited.)
Feb. 5th, 2008 10:45 pm (UTC)
She is just a bundle of nerves and love, our Sally. And you know, we think she's a Malinois, but since we rescued her, and her background is dubious, we've settled on a German Shepherd mix, mostly because we don't know much about the other breed.

But I like the idea of her actually being a royal dog of import, forced to live the life of a peasant because of some upheaval. :D

Maybe you can get Sally one of those little pet beds (the round kind with raised sides). Then she could put her both babies together on the bed, lift the bed by the raised side, and carry both her children away to safety. No more heart wrenching Sophie's Choice (although I don't understand why once she'd delivered baby-duck to the safety of the shower she couldn't go back for baby guinea-pig. Maybe once she got got to her Safe Place she couldn't bear to go back out into Danger.

Loved the story and pictorial illustration.
Feb. 6th, 2008 03:26 pm (UTC)
You know, we tried that - great minds think alike! She absolutely refuses to use beds. There was another huge clap of thunder when she grabbed the duck (after failing to get both in her mouth) so she hightailed it to my bathroom, whining the whole way. :(

I need to put velcro on them so she can mash them together and then carry one, bringing the other along.
Feb. 5th, 2008 11:14 pm (UTC)
AWWWWW!!!!!! That is the saddest sight ever! Poor cute puppy :(
Feb. 6th, 2008 03:26 pm (UTC)
Isn't she the saddest thing in Sadville? She's the Mayor of Woe, I'm telling you!!
Feb. 5th, 2008 11:19 pm (UTC)
Awww..... adorable. Sad face.
Feb. 6th, 2008 03:27 pm (UTC)
I'm just going to curl up with your kitty icon, if you don't mind. S/he looks quite a lot like my Hope cat (and Sally's BFF)
Feb. 5th, 2008 11:55 pm (UTC)
Aw, puppy! So protective and sweet. :)
Feb. 6th, 2008 03:27 pm (UTC)
She really is - she always herds the kids, too, or any other kids that come visit. (I mean, you don't know. There could be wolves out there.) :D
Feb. 6th, 2008 12:16 am (UTC)
Awwww! That's just the sweetest, cutest, saddest thing ever.
Feb. 6th, 2008 03:28 pm (UTC)
*scritches her under the ear* She kept checking on them all night. (They're still by the shower.) :)
Feb. 6th, 2008 12:35 am (UTC)
Here via MQ

My Faith dog (9 yo rottie mix, rescued from abusive homes) is horrified at thunder. She has three huge grumpie groundhogs.

Every storm, we find Faith in the tub with her 3 babies. They all get licked, grumped, squeaked, licked and used as a pillow. After the storm, they are all carried to safety.

She won't leave the house without a Grumpers, including trips to the vet's office. This causes much hilarity, as she is a 98 lb hug thing carrying a toy everywhere.

Poor Sally.
Feb. 6th, 2008 03:29 pm (UTC)
AWWWWwwwwwWWWWWW! (Sally is a rescue from an abusive home, too.) Which, rescued dogs are the BEST. <3 <3

Okay, your story is ADORABLE. I would totes curl up with that Faith and sneak her treats when no one was looking.

Feb. 6th, 2008 03:30 pm (UTC)
If Sally was an orange kitty, and her duck/guinea pig were green fish, she would resemble your icon PERFECTLY.

(And she would be your best friend for life if you gave her a greenie. That's her most fave EVAH.)
Feb. 6th, 2008 01:27 am (UTC)
I love that Sally derg!
Feb. 6th, 2008 03:30 pm (UTC)
Angie, is that not PATHETIC? And a million times adorable?? <3 <3

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.

Time Wot It Is
