Sick he be, the dog is still here. Today.

Two concerns are first in my mind when I awaken each day.

First and foremost, is the dog still alive.

Two, is there a big poop by the front door.

I posted yesterday about a subject very painful, alarming and distressing: the neglect of a sick animal. My roommate’s insistence that his dog is fine because he’s up and around despite continued and CLEAR indications to the contrary. Going into day 9 now with no improvement or promise of a visit to the vet.

The dog is still alive — a discovery of genuine happiness and relief — today.

It may be different tomorrow. Or the next day. Or day after. We cannot say when our time will come.

I can say, with rage and pain, that the dog’s owner is hastening the end of his loyal friend’s life by his damn cavalier egotistical insistence that his dog is fine.

Today’s poop by the door.

Is it a picture of canine health? NO IT IS NOT!

{to my roommate now} HOW IS THIS OK?!?!? HOW DO YOU NOT SEE THAT YOUR DOG NEEDS MEDICAL INTERVENTION!?!?!

Big piles left on the floor every day ARE NOT HIM BEING “FINE.” DAILY DIARRHEA: NOT FINE.

The roommate’s 51. Hasn’t he a CLUE about the longterm effects of chronic diarrhea?! For starters.

Double the quantity and frequency of poops COUPLED with dumps indoors from a dog who always pooped on his morning and evening walks only … ARRRRRGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

I’m beside myself with disgust — at the actions and attitude of my roommate / friend. Except he is no longer a friend. The friendship cannot survive animal cruelty.

A person reveals his character in two ways: What he does in a crisis when the chips are gone, and how he treats animals.

The search for new housing is on.

For now, I’m happy to write that the dog is still alive. Alive and well? No. But alive.

In light of his owner’s extended neglect, this a positive and post-worthy.
