Many of you know Captain’s story, but for those who don’t I’ll explain a bit to help you better understand what this fundraiser is for.
Captain was beaten and neglected, in a serious and horrifying way, for the first 8.5 months of his life. The vet said his skin infections and mange were from the neglect, and the physical damage from the beatings have given him soreness in his shoulders as well as a jaw that does not fully open. Then, after all of that, he was dumped at a high kill shelter and put directly onto the To Be Destroyed list.
Luckily the good people at Second Chance Rescue saw him and pulled him, and he then went to a foster home. His first foster mom couldn’t care for him, so he came into boarding at my old job. That’s where I first met him. That’s where I saw him slowly deteriorate. I loved him too much to let it continue, and brought him home in November.
Captain still has a limp, and a funky jaw, but is otherwise in perfect physical health. His emotional and mental state is much better than it was, but he is still very fearful. I want to change that.

The Fundraiser:
Captain took classes with a trainer named Merri from Finish Forward Dogs. She helped him overcome some of his fearfulness, and learn how to control his impulses. I want to further that. I want him to become an ambassador for rescue dogs. A pup that can travel to adoption events, school visits, and elsewhere. To do that he needs to be ‘bomb-proof’, and I need training for both of us in order to get there. I’m asking for help getting into BMOD classes at Finish Forward, and then Better Bully group classes at the same facility. If you want to help us become a voice for rescue dogs, especially beaten/neglected/bully breed ones, please donate what you can!

I just cut the other half of the jackfruit (it was 22lbs) and OMG it is so much better this time! I wore plastic bags on my hands so they wouldn’t get sticky haha and we waited until after I was done preparing it all to eat. It tastes exactly like juicy fruit bubble gum and I’d definitely buy this again 😍 if you haven’t tried jackfruit you should because you won’t be dissapointed! Check out an Asian market near you, that’s where we got this :)

Oh—you wouldn’t date a girl who’s ever been a stripper?
In that case, I wouldn’t date a guy who’s ever been to a strip club.

Oh—you wouldn’t date a girl who’s ever done porn?
In that case, I wouldn’t date a guy who’s ever watched porn.

You’re the reason we exist.
You’re the demand to our supply.
If you disdain sex workers, don’t you dare consume our labor.

As they say in the industry, “People jack off with the left hand and point with the right.”

Exactly! I feel really badly for people who don’t know there are other options for them, and that if the pressures of society to get a ‘real degree’ aren’t good for them that they don’t have to feel bad for choosing otherwise.
I live low, really low. My fanciest thing, and the only new thing I’ve purchased for myself, is my phone. I use if mostly for work anyway. I make barely 5 figures but I’m just starting on my path, and I left school after 3 years. Whats important: I’m happy. I wasn’t in school or with doing what I was doing.

Feel free to be proud of whatever college degree you’ve achieved, but know that it absolutely does not make you smarter or a better person than someone without one.
In fact, thinking so, and then speaking those thoughts, probably makes you a much worse person who needs to work on themselves a bit more.
I was actually told today, by grown adults with degrees, that I am not going to be able to contribute much to society without a real one. I feel sorry for them, and their children (7-20 is years old, standing with them), because they have been entirely let down and mislead.
I reminded them that the jobs they were demeaning; for example: waitresses, (specialized/not) sales associates, baristas, doggy daycare employees, and so on, were people doing jobs they couldn’t. Jobs they would have to do themselves if those people didn’t exist in that way. I gently reminded them that because of the work I chose to do, without a degree, based on my passion for it, I was /in fact/ what many would call a contributing member of society. My choice to do what I love after /not/ getting a degree, has saved the lives of 13 dogs and 7 cats. I have also provided love, shelter and proper care to upwards of 20, who without my coworkers and myself would have likely (many definitely) been euthanized. To top that off, I also provide high quality care for people’s best friends when they can’t, am a specialized store associate to teach people about their loved family companions, and am a part of MPBA and other advocacy movements.
Their response? No apology. Just a simple, and demeaning, attack at my financial standing in comparison to theirs.
Someone people are a lost cause.

He’s just mad because he can’t acquire all the apple juice that I’m acquiring. (x)

That is a very powerful story. Also, that really is an incredible price on apple juice.
