7 year old appendix, Leo and his new owner.
Rock, dirt monster.
So my amazing TA I had when I was at UC Davis is really in need of some assistance for her sweet Doodle. He has had a few rumors removed and is undergoing a chemo therapy but the expenses are piling up and she just found another tumor on his side.
If you can help her out in any way, please do so. Please share this post.
Come on guys. This amazing little pug means the world to her.
In the spirit of thanksgiving - signal boost!

#HELPMEGETTOSCHOOLI am an 18 year old student currently living in Southern California. I’m raising money to go to a local community college through various jobs, unfortunately the money just isn’t adding up. My family is incredibly short on money because my mom just got out of the hospital and she is unable to work while most of our income is going to hospital bills. My goal is to transfer to art school where I can fulfill my dream of becoming a graphic designer, but I can’t do that with out money for community college.
The money will be going to various things like book costs, course costs, and school supplies. Basically, whatever financial aid won’t cover.
If just 50 of you donated $10 I will have enough to start school in Spring 2014.
If you can’t donate, just spread the word. Thanks! :)
The woman on the pony is 70 something years old and only started (re-started) taking lessons last year.
proof I clean up nice.
This is too important for me not to mention.
The book states: "Give 10 licks at a time, more if the child resists. Be careful about using it in front of others — even at church; nosy neighbors might call social workers."
This is literally a how-to manual on how to abuse and beat your children.
OH MY GOD. Okay stop scrolling and look at me. My mother actually used this book. I am a victim of this piece of literary evil, and let me tell you, it has left me with some seriously deep scars. It got to the point that my brother and I couldn’t even laugh. Laughter was considered “foolishness” and we would literally be struck ten times for it if she heard it. Let me reiterate that.
We could not enjoy ourselves or even be happy without being beaten.
One of the “Christian” cult families introduced this to her and yes, it is basically condoning serious child abuse. I actually personally believe in corporal punishment and let me tell you, THIS IS NOT CORPORAL PUNISHMENT. It is heavy abuse and it’s evil, evil, evil. I’m going to go sign that petition, and so help me, if you know of someone using this book, call Child Protective services immediately. The children of that cult family are now actually being rehabilitated because they grew up like robots. It’s a sick fucking book, okay? Sick. Let’s get this thing banned before it ruins anymore lives.
I am the way I am today because of this hideous thing. I cry every time someone even gently reprimands me. I’m afraid of cutting up in public because I think someone is going to hit me. Worst of all: It taught me to tolerate abuse, that I deserved abuse, and that if someone abused me, I was clearly in the wrong. I can’t possibly begin to tell you how dangerous it has been for me. Thanks to people around me who were raised right, I am only now starting to learn to stand up for myself and that, no, I am not an idiot who deserves verbal, physical, emotional, or mental abuse. I am not just a child who will forever be subject to her power-hungry mother.
Most of all… Children are not animals. And really, who the fuck even treats an animal like that??? Please, if you reblog one thing from me, please let it be this. I don’t want anyone else to go through what I did.
