Please stop boycotting “A Dog’s Purpose”. That video of “animal abuse” was posted by TMZ. TMZ, who is just about tabloids and is known to be problematic. As a trainer, the person working with the dog was doing what he could. He stayed by her side, at her level, and spoke to her and reassuringly touched her sides.
This video was ALSO made by PETA, an organization that is notoriously awful. They have stolen animals from people’s homes and euthanized them several times. They also edited the video to skip right from footage of the dog being nervous about the water right to her being IN the water, implying they just threw her in. They didn’t. She’s a German shepherd, she isn’t a water dog and would naturally be nervous. The minute she showed any sign of struggle, they removed her and cared for her. This is a trained animal and trained workers who know how to make entertainment without hurting the doggy cast. Don’t boycott this film because of a literal tabloid.
Fuck customers at the fabric store who take bolts off the shelves and head straight to the cashiers with them. Like, first of all, 99.9% of all bolts in the store are BTY. Second of all, you HAVE to get them measured at the cut counter, no exceptions. No I cannot do it at the register with a shitty tape ruler you had in your back pocket. Thirdly, like 2/3 of our cashiers and cut counter workers are not trained to do double duty. Chance is the cashier doesnt even know how to manually ring fabric.
