Young and Stupid, and A Bad Influence

That's what I am.

In my defense, one of the girls made a conscious decision to get trashed last night, and I was under the impression that Sparky had drank more than he actually had before last night.

Yeah, first time drinker girl, and second time drinker guy. The girl, we plied with tequila and dr pepper, then screwdrivers.

Sparky expressed a wish to catch up, when he arrived a few hours after we'd all already gotten good and going, so we fed him shots. Of tequila, rum, and vodka, alternating.

He made it all the way back to his dorm before he started calling dinosaurs.

It was fun, though.

Tonight, T's birthday party at Opals. I gotta get a shower and get cleaned up, he'll be here around seven. I'm gonna be soo dead tired tomorrow....

But it's totally worth it.

Farmgirl, Now I can see why you didn't post for 48hours after that depressing deal.

I can't get into a hangover, but hope the party's a blast.

oh my.

"The vet that the girl took the horse to said it was bad off, and she should leave the horse at the vet's office, and if she insisted on taking him somewhere, to take him to Fort Collins."

so who did she really think she was? Why even GO to a vet if you are going to ignore his educated and probably experienced opinion? Don't you go because he knows things you don't???

but to me the worst was this....

"and leave him alone all night."

huh? You have a horse that has been diagnosed with colic, colic bad enough the vet wants him to stay at the clinic and you leave him alone????

She gets no sympathy from me for putting herself in a position where a horse needed to be destroyed and it was difficult for her. Way too many opportunities to get this fixed, or do it right, or something else before it came to this.

As both the other Holly and Mustanger pointed out, when we acquire animals that need our care, we also take on the responsibility to actually CARE for them.....and that includes the final mercy.

It should have been mercy....not 30 minutes before mercy got there.
