Went to visit AFKS. He and Mrs. AFKS are getting along spectacularly now. He's doing housework again, being all helpful and loving and blah, blah. Mrs. AFKS says it's like she got her husband back.
Conclusion: AFKS was just being a big dummy poopy head about the adoption until he was beaten over the head with it and then, suddenly, he realized it was gonna be OK. I'll be there to remind him what a fucktard he was about this whole situation in the coming years, when his new daughter manages to piss him off by daring to have anything in her life change on the slightest level.
Pup1 got sick. A major cold. Hacking up a lung type thing. I took her to the vet yesterday and got some pills and some alcohol based cough syrup for her. It's meant to keep her calm and relaxed so she doesn't work herself up and start hacking, plus a cough supressant type thing like normal cough syrup has.
About a half hour after getting a dose she'll get sort of funny. She'll just sit there, looking at things like she's utterly amazed. The TV, when bright colors come on, completely fascinates her. Her head will cock back and forth, her eyes looking somewhat unfocused, and she'll look slowly back towards us like, "how is that happening?" Poor thing.
It did knock her out good when we went to bed though, and she slept through the night. Unlike the previous night where she woke up hacking five times. Bonus.
Hopefully she comes out of it quickly. Our dogs are usually pretty damned healthy, so they tend to knock diseases really fast, but this one seems to have really grabbed hold. So far we've been lucky and Pup2 hasn't picked it up. Keeping fingers and toes crossed in hopes it stays that way.
You know, I don't get why people believe legislation should exist for things they wouldn't do themselves. Oh, I get the basics. Murder should be a crime. Buying fucking whiskey on Sunday should not. Just because YOUR religion says it's naughty, though apparently it's OK to do in the other six days a week, that doesn't mean *I* have to obey *YOUR* religion's tenets.
This comes back to mind as South Dakota just overturned the "liquor on Sunday" law. Protests have already started. Why? It was a dumb law to begin with. How does it harm anyone that wouldn't do it themselves if I do? Or is it just that those folks have so little self control that it needs to be on the books to prevent them from doing it?
Dumbass "moral majority" bullshit.
