Call me a fool for asking - if it's so puzzling maintaining your pet, why do you have one? Are you a duck hunter/game-keeper? Do you have a herd of sheep you're managing? Don't get me wrong - I love animals. Even most bugs. I've had people pay me to crazy money to mind their imprisoned animals while they chase their dreams: dogs, cats, fish, birds - even a turtle. I'm in no position to harbor pets myself, yet I'm fascinated by the entire pet universe.
Having been raised in a household with generations of animals I understand how they're like family - I grew up in a post-Charlotte's Web world...

I just hose that bitch down. She gets Bert's Bees Oatmeal shampoo about every three weeks or so and then random days between I'll hose her down. She always darts right for the dirt or a dead fish or a pile of manure or whatever the worst possible thing would be to roll in after a bath and she'll roll in that and fuck the whole thing up anyway so idk.. I just try to keep up on it. I remove her eye boogers probably 4 times a day, and that's pretty much her entire hygiene schedule.

Give your dog a full body wax when you get yours done, the dirt and filth will just roll right off you two.

They aren't cats.

I just take my beast into the tub or shower with me, the same way you would a very little kid. She's never been afraid of getting wet and I think she kind of likes the snuggles.

The vet says every week is fine. She gets dirty.

I use Earthbath Oatmeal shampoo, but my dog is kind of spoiled. The important thing is that dogs' Ph balance is different than humans'. You could just use dish soap with the right amount of vinegar or lemon juice. There are recipes on the internet.

I've got to brush her darned near every day, comb out fleas during flea season, keep her nails filed down, and clip the hair between her paw pads and these little tufts on her face that would grow into her eyes if I didn't.

She still looks like a scruffy little ragamuffin tomboy.

I don't love my dog because I think she's cute, I think my dog is cute because I love her.

My dog doesn't get very dirty. I walk miles and miles, and there's no way she'd be able to keep up. So usually she stays indoors. As such, she gets a bath about every two weeks, unless she gets poop in her fur, then she gets an extra bath. I use an oatmeal shampoo, it's Hartz brand. And she gets brushed about every other day.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$45.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $45.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $45.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $45.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $45.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

Asheville, looking to hang out? Peace
Made it to chicago, had a blast. Got a bike a new bike at the squat i stayed at. So far ive been at the wsp hopout for 12 hours and not a single wbd has shown up.
Yeah remember when I said I'm going off grid for a while? Didn't last long, fucked my back up real bad and apparently I also have an enlarged heart, pretty cool. More love to give maybe? So they admitted me. I'll be on hospital grid for at least a day. Low battery and no charger though, so I'mma leave y'all with a cliffhanger probably. Will try to update before heading back out to the sticks.
100% off-grid for roughly 2 weeks? I'll try to pop in here and there if I get any trips to town. Safe travels y'all. And even if you're just sittin around talkin bout "yeah gonna hit the road in about 6 months maybe" y'all be safe doin that too alright. Armchairs be dangerous yo!
