So, this past December I moved to a new town, a couple hours from my hometown (but quite far from the city I’d been living in). It’s a smallish rural town (<50,00 people) and the nearest town even close to that size is two hours away. Anyway, I joined the local pet group on Facebook just to, you know, be involved and stuff.
And I didn’t expect much else but the thing is a disaster. All of the posts are either:
1) BYBs trying to sell their “papered” “registered” “pure breed” puppies for hundreds-thousands of dollars (or, just as often, selling mixes for hundred of dollars). Of course none of this involves a screening process, etc. People just comment and say “I’ll take the brown male” and so on.
2) People trying to get rid of their adolescent dogs, usually around 6mo-2yo. Some try to sell them (”rehoming fee”) while others just try giving them away.
3) People looking for a dog, usually a specific breed, and usually asking that they are free or very cheap because they don’t have much money.
I’ve been thinking about making a post on there, in an attempt to be informative. I truly think most of these people just don’t know better. And I know that some people might react poorly and reject what I’m saying (like that one guy on there who insisted that since his dog has papers that he got online she is a registered support dog and can go anywhere with him and I have no clue what I’m talking about), but my hope is that I can at least open a few people’s eyes, and educate them.
Is this a stupid idea? Is it worth it, or would it just be pretentious of me? I want to help people and dogs, that’s all. There’s so many layers of misunderstanding going on and if I could change some perspectives, maybe it would be the start of a positive change in this community? I don’t know.
Any input is welcome. I’m kind of at a loss here. I’m not usually one to speak out on Facebook but this is something I care about.
So according to a new interview ‘Welcome to the madness’ WAS choreographed by Yuri OVERNIGHT with the help of his DJ friend Otabek who WILL PLAY AN UNEXPECTED ROLE in the EX, although they won’t pair skate like Victuri
he was pissed of at having messed up in his FS and didn’t want to do the EX Lilia did for him (as in another ballet hit)
