The joys of working as a dispatcher...

Yesterday was one of those days when EVERYTHING seems to get on your nerves
Here are just a couple random things that happened during my 4 hour shift

1-woman wants officer to come to her home for an unruly 13 year old. The child was being rude and running around ringing the doorbell. When he was told to go to his room he then threatened to spit on her (GASP!). This made her extremely upset, enough so to call 911. Seriously???? Your kid THREATENS to spit on you so you call 911. WOW, and we wonder what is wrong with America

2-Winner #2-misuse of the HOV lane now qualifies as a 911 emergency-thank you sir, the county is safe now

3-Question of the day (asked several times by said minor) Is it legal for a restaurant to give a minor an aspirin? Hmmmmm...ponder that one for a while

Well, I think I've calmed down a little bit since my previous post. Everyone can sleep good tonight, I am not giving my dog away lol. I'm entitled to be able to threaten it every once in a while though, right? I decided maybe she is like one of those women that you see on those commercials who just ALWAYS has to go. Maybe she just can't help it. Anyway, she is staying. I haven't given up on her. I have decided that if I'm going to be gone for more than a couple hours at a time she can go outside in the kennel with the other dogs. I will consider that her exercise since she can't stop playing with them when they're together.

Ok, everyone can resume living their lives as normally as possible now :)

Ok, so I totally need to vent about my little poop problem. My dog, Maisy, will be a year old this month and she is STILL not potty trained!!! She is constantly pottying in her crate and she still sneaks off and pottys in the house. I have contacted the breeder that I got her from and asked her to take her back. I cannot handle the poop anymore! I was pretty torn about what to do with her but yesterday was the final straw. After taking her out to potty in the morning around 8:00 am I put her back in her crate so I could run some errands. About two hours later I walked in the door and the smell of feces about knocked me over! can't hold it for two freaking hours Maisy?! I haven't actually taken her back to the breeder yet so if anyone has any suggestions please help! I am at my wits end.
