PLEASE HELP ME AND MY DOG PLEASE PLEASE HELP HELP

Post by <good.. » Fri, 07 Jun 1996 04:00:00



   I have a pet problem, that I'm hoping somebody will be able to give
me some advice about. I don't know if this is the right place to be
seeking advice but no one else knows what to do so I will try..

  My problem concerns my pet dog, Boofer.  Boofer is a Black Curly
Retriever
He was given to me by my Aunty as a present 6 months ago. Boofer is a
very ugly animal and is sometimes very stupid. On Thursday of last week,
When I came back from a week long ski trip, I found Boofer had gotten
out of his cage and had been playing over the road in the railroad
workshops. His upper body and head was covered in greasy oil. I had to
wash him before I could put him backin his cage. I tried Shampoo and
Dish washing Detergent, but these did not seem to be doing much. I
borrowed a large bottle of Terpintine from my neighbour who helped me
give boofer a thorough scrubdown. it took a lot of the oil out but
unfortunately the terps reacted with Boofer's skin and eyes. For the
past week Boofer has been scratching continuosly. He has scratched so on
his neck that most of his hair has been scraped off. His eyelids have
swelled so much that he can't open them and he is not eating the food
scraps that I'm giving him. looking at Boofer I can see that he is
crying out of his eyes, sometimes seeing that he is in extreme pain
makes me almost feel sorry for him, even though he is is a dog. Boofer's
constant whining and weeping is keeping me awake at nights and I am
starting to think that getting boofer wasn't such a cool present after
all. I've had nightmares of Boofer breaking into the house and rubbing
his hairless neck onto the table, and leaving oil and *** stains on
it. Just the thought of him coming into the house is bad enough, let
alone the way he looks at the moment. The reason I am writing is that I
am hoping somebody can answer these questions:-

1> How many weeks can a dog survive without eating?

Quote:
>I think that if boofer could see the food on the ground, then maybe he >would eat it. I've tried to open his eyes but they are cove=

red in a slimy >liquid film, and I don't want to touch them.

2> how can I open his eyes?

3> How can I stop Boofer from whining all night?, it is driving me crazy.

4> When Boofer is allright to touch again, how can I get the rest of the
   oil of his hair

  I realise that a lot of you will be thinking that I am foolish for ever
letting Boofer out of his cage, but he pushed his own way out and I
wasn't in town when he did it. boofer is really starting to mess up my back yard and I want to put him back in his cage as soon as p=
ossible.

  So please, if you can answer my questions, or you have any opinions that you would care to share with me then please send me a let=
ter, if not for the animals sake then to cheer me up.

I have one more question.
5> I am thinking of buying a cat, does anyone know of a good breed that
   won't fight with boofer when I leave them home together?

 THANKYOU FOR READING THIS AND I WILL BE VERY HAPPY IF YOU CAN ALL HELP ME CLEAN THIS THING UP(excuse the pun)

                                                                                                                               Yours Sincerely  Mathew Goodwin

I have to believe that this posting is a sick attempt at humor since
anyone this stupid probably couldn't operate a computer. But in case it
isn't, my advice is to take Boofer to a vet and then put him up for
adoption so that he can find a family that will properly take care of him
and not abuse this poor creature. Also, if you lived in my neighborhood
and I found out what you did, you wouldn't have to worry about Boofer
keeping you awake at night, I would have a simple solution for that, you
dumb***!!!

I WISH TO APOLIGIZE TO ANYBODTY THAT I HAVE UPSET.

THE LETTERS ON THE REC.PETS COLUMNS ABOUT BOOFER AND CRYSTAL WERE NOT
TRUE AND WERE ONLY SUPPOSED TO BE A JOKE.

I REALISE THAT I HAVE UPSET PEOPLE, AND I AGAIN APOLIGIZE, I DID NOT
EXPECT PEOPLE TO TAKE IT SERIOUSLY.

THE CHARACTERS MENTIONED IN THESE STORIES WERE FICTITIOUS.

I know everyone is probably 'peeved off, but lets not dignify this "hoax" with 100's of posts on
rec.pets.herp telling this person off.  If you have something to say to him, send him e-mail.  I
imagine that this person wants to start a 'rucus.  Lets not give him one.

Thanks,

Subsequent troll-bait attempt at humor snipped.

     Just do the 'ole Dejanews search on this guy, folks. He evidently fancies
himself a comedian and has posted mostly to joke groups in the past, but also
to a *** group with an offer of a child available for their use, etc. A
couple of the flaming responses to his stupidity are rather entertaining and
creatively phrased, at least. I doubt we'll ever see him again here.

I'd also like to ask people not to send email to the address the
original post came from as well.  When I read the original post, I sent
email to the poster in case it wasn't a very bad joke.  The account
owner emailed me back asking what was going on.  He doesn't even have a
dog and was quite surprised by the email he was getting.  Given the
tone of the replies on the newsgroup, I expect he emailed me because my
reply was the least vindictive.  The writing styles of the person who
emailed me was clearly different from the style (if you can call it
that) of the original poster.  I expect someone was using his account
without authorization.

Let's just drop the whole thing.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  This makes
it all worse!!! If that is true this guy still needs to be turned in for

PS- Could this be a ploy to cover up because he is afraid from being
turned in???

Was I sickened by his original post?  Yes.  But I assumed that it was
just a sick joke.  His response pretty well verified it (I assume he
got spammed).

Would I be his friend?  Probably not if he was so insensative as to
post that kind of joke to a newsgroup populated by people who love animals.

But turn him in for thinking up such things?

I hope you're just trading sick joke for sick joke.  The last thing we
need, especially on Usenet, is MORE thought police.

My suggestion?  Just ignore stupid people like him.  The reason he
posted was to get a rise; by giving it to him you're just allowing him
to control you.  He wins every time you respond.  If all he gets from
his flame bait is silence, he will look for another newsgroup.

He did make an apology explaining it was a hoax...
but I agreed with you, it made me sick.
