Friends Cut, Open Entry [Thursday
Oct 4th, 2007
11:25 pm
I'm doing a friends cut here. It's time. I am not trying to be rude or hurtful.

I have cut people for a few reasons only:

1. YOU NEVER POST! I can't feel a connection with you if you are never around.

2. You NEVER comment on my journal and/or VERY RARELY comment back on your own. Come on, if you can't comment back to me, I don't feel like I belong on your friends list. I just believe friendship goes both ways and if you have NO INTEREST in my life at all, then I feel like I'm just on your list to help your numbers go up.

3. You are a 2nd or 3rd journal of another of my friends and haven't posted in 26-96 weeks. But don't worry! I kept the primary journals because I could NEVER cut you!

I'M PREGNANT!!!!!!!!!

My hCG levels should be at least 100 today. Mine are 104.

My progesterone is 30.

These are very good numbers. :D


When I called Kevin, I was crying so hard he thought it was a negative and then he couldn't understand me when I was blubbering "I'm pregnant!" He was yelling at me, "Amanda, calm down and tell me! I need to know!!!"

So cute!

I LOVE YOU GUYS. Thank you all so much for crossing your fingers for me!

Edit 08/24/07:
We learned today the pregnancy is ectopic. We go tomorrow for a chemical abortion. I'm turning off comments in this post. I just didn't want everyone thinking all was well anymore.

We are praying the medication works and surgery won't be needed. In the meantime, our hearts are breaking.

[ mood | curious ]

Hey, a few people on my flist have done this and I've found out that I really like reading people's secrets and posting my own.

What are your secrets? I'm enabling anonymous posting of comments and will screen all comments so if you want me to keep it to myself, let me know. I'll let all that don't say "Screen this" or something similar through.

Tell me a secret about yourself or about how you feel about me or your secret fetish or your shameful habit you just can't resist.

New Benny Pics! [Tuesday

I just got Benny back from the groomers.

The first is sucky b/c it's from my cell phone but you can see his exuberance easily enough.

It's amazing how HAPPY he is suddenly.

P.S. He gave Kevin kisses last night! He still won't let Kevin walk him alone but it's a great step after only 2 days.

He looks so goofy here.

Real men love pink butterflies!

How could anyone not love this guy? I just know he'll be adopted soon now. :D

We have the dog! [Saturday

Hey guys, that wasn't a pic of the actual dog we are fostering. Just a pic of his breed-mix.

Sorry for the confusion! But to make up for it, I have a pic of the REAL him.

Coby was his name from his abusive and neglectful owners. He needs a new name. I'm considering Falkor as he looks so much like the luckdragon in Neverending Story.

Any ideas?

He gets along great with our boys and hasn't shown any interest in Angel (which is a GOOD thing). He is a little afraid of Kevin but seems to be getting used to him. Weirdest pooper ever. He backs up as he poos.

This is a picture of the breed-mix dog we are picking up tomorrow. His temporary name is Coby and his new name will be decided upon meeting him.

His coat won't look nearly as good for awhile as he was loaded with mats so much that his rescuer had to cut them to the skin. When we get him, we'll have to clip him down so he'll look pretty ridiculous for a couple of weeks until it grows out.

I can't wait to meet him!!

Meet Milo! [Saturday

We picked up Milo, our foster-dog, today. He fits in like we've had him all his life, haha! We went to PetCo with just him and he met a really sweet couple who had a shepherd mix, Rocky, with them. Rocky and Milo are BFF and I gave the woman all the information on the rescue because she has fallen in love with our little Milo.

The rescue founder said there were already 2 apps. for him but now there will be 3. I told the lady to make sure to put on her app that she has already met Milo and introduced him to her dog who loves him.

He's so sweet you guys! I can't wait until he finds his forever home; he's going to be so happy...forever!

Pet Safety and Protection Act [Saturday
Mar 24th, 2007
12:31 am
Dear Animal Advocates,

The federal Pet Safety and Protection Act, S. 714/H.R. 1280, would prohibit Class B Dealers and unlicensed individuals from selling dogs and cats to research laboratories.

Class B Dealers are people who collect dogs and cats from random sources and sell them to the research industry. They sometimes obtain their animals through illegal or unethical means, such as by responding to “free to good home” ads in newspapers, falsifying records to keep the true origins of the animals unknown, and stealing pets kept outside in yards.

The Pet Safety and Protection Act would provide a much-needed safety net to ensure beloved pets are not stolen or acquired under false pretenses and sold to research laboratories.

What You Can Do
Please visit the ASPCA Advocacy Center to send a letter to your representative and senators urging them to support and cosponsor The Pet Safety and Protection Act. You may use the same link to read about this legislation in greater depth.

Thank you for supporting the ASPCA.

I promised pics of Angel & egg.

I wasn't able to get them to pose together. Or rather, I wasn't willing to lose a finger.

*floofed to kill*

See how protective she is? My little sweetie turns into a mother bear. She doesn't even trust me. The best is shredded newspaper. Kevin and I made a project of shredding it for her when I felt her egg in her tummy. Kevin is braver than I and has been taking out shat-upon handfuls when he can sneak a chance at it.

She does come out sometimes for little visits and to hump one of her toys for her next egg. I would take her toys away but then she'd hump a lampshade. Yes, a lampshade.

And presenting....

Protect Birds From UnRegulated USPS Mailings!!! [Friday
Aug 4th, 2006
10:21 am
Federal: Urge Your Senator to protect birds! Oppose S. 2395!

Bill No. S. 2395

Primary Sponsors Senator Charles Grassley (R-IA)

ASPCA Position Oppose

Action Needed Send a letter to your senators now and urge them
to oppose S. 2395! Take Action Now! https://secure2.convio.net/aspca/site/Advocacy?pagename=homepage&page=UserAction&id=2029

Every year, millions of day-old baby chicks are mailed via the U.S. Postal Service by commercial hatcheries and cockfighting breeders. The chicks are literally packed in boxes and sent through the mail, without food or water, and with no concern for temperature extremes. This inhumane practice results in the deaths of countless baby birds every year.

After receiving complaints from various animal protection groups, the U.S. Postal Service adopted policy changes to help protect birds shipped in the mail. The new regulations require that the shipment of all live animals be coordinated through central offices to ensure their arrival and limit the length of time the animals can be in transit via ground transportation.

In response to the new regulations adopted by the U.S. Postal Service, Senator Charles Grassley has introduced S. 2395, which would remove the Postal Service’s authority to implement the new regulations and force it to accommodate the baby bird and cockfighting industries. S. 2395 would provide that the Postal Service require certain airlines to transport birds, require those airlines to transport the birds through connecting cities, not necessarily direct flights, and require those airlines to transport birds in any temperature conditions between 0 and 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

If passed, this bill will undoubtedly lead to unnecessary suffering for millions of baby birds! Contact your Senators now and urge them to oppose S. 2395! Take action now!
