OMG! Is This True??

Check out this video! Watch to the end.


It's saying that Paula found out her mom was unfaithful to the man she called her father. I wonder if that is really true? Or if it's a rumor. They said that is why she killed herself. I almost have to laugh at that! So all these years, I thought it was grief over losing Michael that killed her. But apparently I was wrong. It wasn't a drug overdose fueled by grief, it was a drug overdose fueled by anger over her mom doing something that Paula herself did several years before! My question is, why was she surprised? Obviously, Paula had to get her immorality from somewhere. Right? She cheated on Bob Geldof, and she had kids with him. I think! It's not a far cry to believe that Paula would sooner or later have cheated on Michael if they'd ever gotten married. So why was she so uptight because her mom cheated on her dad? That totally does not make sense to me!

But then again, when did Paula Yates ever make any sense? And for that matter, this report seems to be off in some places too. In the scene where Michael confronts the photographers, the reporter says he was "intoxicated". Well, he didn't look intoxicated to me. He just looked angry! I think the script-writer for this report just said Michael was "clearly intoxicated" because s/he was butthurt and wanted to make Michael look bad. If they're saying that because of his lisp, and they're taking it as the slurred speech of an inebriated man, well Michael always had that lisp! I think it's a cute lisp! I love it! It drives me crazy every time I hear him speaking. Makes me want to cuddle and kiss him! hehehe!

Also, the report says that Paula got this information in 2002, which is way off. Paula was dead in 2002. In fact, she was dead in 2001 too. She died back in 2000. LOL! So their dateline is WAY off! But whatever the case may be, the dumb Yatesfags can stop thinking that she died as a result of grief-fueled drug overdose. If indeed this is true. Either way, she left Lily. She disappointed Michael. I still don't like her! Fuck her!

I've given my opinions of what I believe happened to Michael. I still believe he was murdered! By both Paula and Bob! I blame both of them for his death!

Musicians Everyone Else Loves, But I Can't Stand

Well, I recently did a post pointing out musicians that have songs that I adore, even though most of them I am not a real big fan of. Now, I am going to discuss musicians, or groups, that everyone else seems to love, but that I cannot stand. That is to say these are musicians that a lot of my friends adore, and I look at their posts about them and wonder why. LOL! Now, my friends do have their own rights to have their own opinions. I am not trying to change their minds. This post is just based on my own opinion of these people. These are musicians that I have heard before, but I just never liked any of their music, and you will never see any of their songs on my MP3 player.

1. David Bowie
I remember hearing of something when I was in middle school called "Bowie-mania". Well, I heard his song "Let's Dance" and I absolutely HATED it!!! I couldn't even listen to the whole song, it was so awful! It hurt my ears to listen to it! And nothing he ever did after that impressed me either. Nor before that, for that matter. He was just bad, IMO. Not to mention, he's ugly as shit! He looks like a damn stray, emaciated cat!

2. Justin Beiber
Though he seems to be today's teenage heartthrob, I don't like him at all. Besides the fact that he has got no manners, and he's only after the money, he has no talent. What he has is a gang of highly-skilled engineers who probably work to their ultimate limit to make this kid sound even halfway decent. Unfortunately I think all the young singers today sound like him. That's not good. I can't think of one single song of his that I like, or would ever want on my MP3 player.

3. Justin Timberlake
I have one song by NSYNC on my MP3 player. That is all! I do not like Justin Timberlake since he left the group. To me, he is nothing by himself.

4. Prince
OK, this one I kindof have mixed feelings about. He was an inspiration with his music to a lot of other 80s bands. Including INXS, which is my most favorite band of all. I used to have Little Red Corvette on my MP3 player, and I do head-bop to his songs on the first Batman movie from 1989, but frankly I just don't like him well enough to keep any of his songs on my MP3 player. I cannot explain why. I just don't like his music all that much.

5. The Doors
Three words: WORST-GROUP-EVER!!!
I've heard their songs before and I absolutely do NOT like them! Too dark and depressing for me. And I positively hate it when people compare my Michael to Jim Morrison! In order for Michael to look like Morrison, he would have to bloat up his face, and have a permanent fixture on his mouth to look like he's eating something sour, and have his eyes somehow moved so that they both touch each other at the top of his nose! UGH! Morrison is that ugly to me!

Well really, that is all I can think of, besides the female singers. But I think it's pretty safe to say I do not very well take to female singers. I'm not saying some of them do not have good songs, I like a lot of songs by Celine Dion, don't ask me why, but she has come out with some pretty cool songs. I also like Loreena McKennitt, and Enya because I love celtic music. But for some reason I don't think women singers are all that great. Maybe its that I am old fashioned and think singing is a mostly male-dominated profession. Or maybe it is because I prefer songs made by cute guys.

Memorial For Dad

Well, Kathy and her family are going to be organizing a memorial for my pa. I cannot go because it's going to be in Tacoma, in the mobile home park where they used to live. I still miss my pa. I miss him like everything! But I stopped crying every 10 minutes at least. Unfortunately, I won't be able to go to this memorial. I don't have a car, nor any other way I can get there. I don't know anyone here well enough to ask them to take me. I'm not that desperate to go! I mean, I can remember my father very well here at home, and go ahead with a little memorial bit of my own, with just me, and possibly Katrina. Well, she didn't know him. All she knew about him was what I told her about him, which quite frankly, did not make him sound too flowery! Dad and I used to fight a lot when I was younger. But as I got older, I stopped because I felt uncomfortable getting into childish fights with an old man. Even though he wasn't frail. He was still old. Made me feel like I was battling with my grandpa! And I didn't like that feeling.

Well, I cannot just totally dismiss the times my pa threw me under the bus, especially with Kathy. For the past 15 years, I have been trying to get along with Kathy. If for no other reason, to bring a sense of peace to my father's life. But sometimes Kathy and her family make it so hard to get along. They were raised differently than I was. I was brought up to speak my mind, no matter what. Now, that's not to say Kathy and her family are not nice people. They really can be nice. It was nice of them to help me and my sis come down to visit my father before he passed. But I think sometimes my father gave Kathy a totally distorted picture of me. For example that weekend Kathy was in Arizona and dad invited me to visit him in Tacoma and stay for the weekend. I really have no idea what dad told Kathy I did that weekend, but I have the feeling it was not the whole truth. I am still very interested in knowing exactly what he told her, because she said to him that if he ever invited me to stay there for the weekend again, that she was going to divorce him. And as far as I know, I didn't do anything that was that bad. Seems kinda silly to divorce someone you apparently love just because I would not eat a steak! I mean really! Even my ma thought that was so petty!

I remember when I was moving in to my tiny little abode in Port Angeles, ma and pa both helped me move my things in. Ma cornered pa and confronted him with that, asking him if Kathy really said that. He said yes. Ma said "Well I don't like it! How could you let her talk that way about our daughter?!" I'd kinda like to know the answer to that question myself, but ma said that dad went silent after that. At the time my sis told me that Kathy said that, I had just finished telling ma and my stepfather that Kathy is a good person. I almost felt like washing my mouth out with soap after hearing she said that! LOL! But anyways, that is all irrelevant now. This memorial is for my father, and remembering the good things about him. I told Kathy to have fun at this memorial when she posted the announcement on her facebook page. Stephanie, her oldest daughter, must have taken it the wrong way because she snapped at me with "Have fun?! This is a memorial, how are we supposed to 'have fun'? Answer that for me please!" Well, she asked a question, so I answered it. I told her "By celebrating his LIFE. His life is worth celebrating. Isn't it?"

I don't know exactly what Stephanie thought I was trying to say, but that's the best way I could put it. It's times like that that I have to remind myself that she was raised differently than I was. So, she doesn't understand. But I do the exact same thing every November for my Michael, I celebrate his life. It doesn't mean I am glad he's dead. It means I want to celebrate his time here on Earth, because I love him so much. He meant the Earth, moon and sun to me! When my grandma died and was buried, we had a little procession, but then after that, my stepfather said "We mourned her death, now let's go celebrate her LIFE." and then took us all out for a pizza. It was a time to get comfortable, have dinner, laugh and reminisce about all the great things grandma was known for. It can be fun, and it took my mind off the sadness I felt losing grandma. Knowing my father the way I do, I would think he'd want to be remembered for his laughing and singing, and a lot of good things. I'll always remember him as laughing and singing all the time, making jokes about everything. So, that is how I am going to remember him. That helps take away some of the grief I've been feeling over losing him.

Well, Stephanie's comment is no longer there. I don't know if she deleted it or if Kathy deleted it, but I hope Stephanie read it. I hope she realizes I didn't post that comment to offend anyone or to get into a fight with her. I just want those who attend to have fun remembering my father. Because that is what I am going to do. Kathy and her family were so nice while me and my sis were there, but still a bit stand-offish against me. I remember at one point I needed to look something up on a computer. But Kathy did not have a computer, and I saw either it was Stephanie or Jennifer (Kathy's younger daughter) had their tablet. I asked her if I could borrow her tablet for just a minute to look something up and she looked at me like I had just asked her to sell her soul to the devil! LOL! But I assured her, I only needed to use it for a minute. Well that was one of the funnier things that happened while I was there. But I did notice it was just me they all seemed to have a problem with. Not Anna. And I really think it has a lot to do with what my beloved father possibly told Kathy that happened that weekend I spent there. Oh well. I keep trying to be nice, hoping soon they will come off it. But I think it's a moot point now. Now that my father is gone, neither Kathy nor her children are going to keep in touch with me, and probably not even with Anna. I just have that feeling.

Facebook Friends and Killer Clowns

The apocalypse is coming! LOL! But instead of the 5 horsemen, we're being invaded by killer clowns. UGH! The only clowns I know of on Facebook are the people who deleted me from their friends! LOL!! But that's not what I am here to talk about. This is just a message to those who ask me to become their friend on Facebook. Take notice, I am not really that desperate for Facebook buddies. If I know you, and you've either impressed me, or I somehow like you, I will add you to my friends. But if I do not know you, and you have not posted anything on your timeline, or if everything in your timeline is in spanish or some other language I don't speak, do not expect I am going to accept your friend request. Now, that is not to say I do not like people who speak only in other languages. But my point is, why? How can I be a good friend to someone if I cannot understand and communicate with them? I get involved in the lives of my Facebook friends, as much as they allow me to. I laugh with them, cry with them, tell them I am happy for them when something good happens, send condolences when something bad happens. I've prayed for some of my friends who have asked for it, or needed it. I know people have private lives they don't want to post on Facebook, and I understand that. I do not expect anyone to post everything that happens in their lives. There are things about me the internet still does not know, and never will know. They are secrets that are going to the grave with me.

I've been getting a lot of requests lately from people who only seem to speak spanish. I cannot accept them! I don't know these people, and probably will never know them because of the language barrier. I cannot get close to someone I cannot understand. I'm not saying they are not nice people, just saying how can I be friends with them when I just cannot read anything they post? I got one request from someone who had nothing posted on his page. Nothing except pictures. No comments from himself or anything. I saw I had a few mutual friends with him, but I asked him if he's an INXS fan, and he never responded. So, I deleted him. This morning I also noticed someone added me to a group that was nearly 100% spanish speaking. I don't know why people always are thinking I speak spanish. Could it be somehow they know my last name? I don't know how! I left that group. I told them I cannot stay there, I don't speak spanish! When someone comments, I can use Facebook's translating feature. But when they post a picture and it's written in spanish, I cannot tell what it's supposed to say. So, I cannot tell them whether or not I like their picture. And that sucks!

So, it's not them, it's just me. Really. I have a few friends who mostly speak spanish and I am fine with that, but they've been my friends for a long time now. They are some very loyal friends too. But I just cannot accept any new ones. Sorry people.

Well, there is a new trend out now, killer clowns are stalking America. Maybe the world! Some have caused some serious trouble! Some have raped women, some even at gunpoint, or knifepoint. I can only say wow! With wide eyes! What is this going to do to the people who are already coulrophobes? I think it's just going to add more people to that parade! I've seen reports where one kid told of a clown that was thrashing a knife around chasing him, and several more reports of clowns trying to lure kids into the woods. One boy was walking to the bus stop and a man in a clown mask followed him. They've been using laser pointers, and luring kids with the promise of money. Seems most of their victims were young boys, but I am sure there are some girls they have harassed as well. This trend seems to be spreading. I'm just waiting for the day to come when there are reports of clowns actually killing people.

You know what I blame all this on? As much as I hate to admit it, I blame all these shows that glorifies such characters as The Joker. Don't get me wrong, I love the Joker as much as any Batman fan! But somehow he is being glorified enough to where people are wanting to imitate him! I think that is what is causing all this BS going on in the world today with these scary clowns. I can only hope their only objective is to just scare people. I hope they do not turn to actually killing people.

Surprisingly Ancient Mammals

I just LOVE doing these animal posts! Heck I love animals. They're a lot of fun. Well, most of them are. Cats are absolutely no fun at all. But all other animals are a lot of fun to watch and have around. Anyways, in this post I am going to look at some mammals that are surprisingly old as a species or family. Some of these mammals even date back to the age of the dinosaurs, which is really rare in modern mammal families. Most mammal families that were around during the dinosaur age went extinct with the dinosaurs. But these mammals managed to survive the so-called "KT event", and have even survived to today, right under our feet.

Well, monotremes themselves are pretty ancient, dating back to the early Cretaceous period, about 80 million years ago. They managed to survive mostly by being burrowers. These are the only mammals in the world today that lay eggs, directly linking them to the ancient reptiles that are the ancestors of all living mammals.

Though people today mostly do not like opossums, they are a very ancient family of mammals. They are thought of as being lazy, stupid, disgusting animals. But looking at them at a bio-geographical level, they must be doing something right! Because they are a family that is more than 70 million years old, dating them back to the mid-Cretaceous period. In short, this animal is older than such dinosaurs as Triceratops and Tyrannosaurus Rex. They still display a number of primitive behaviors. People today regard them as stupid. But they are amazing survivors!

Tenrecs are actually the oldest placental mammal in the world. There are several varieties all in the family Tenrecidae, and are dispersed throughout Madagascar and part of central Africa. This little-known family dates back to the mid-late years of the Cretaceous period, alongside the Opossum family. They are approximately 70 million years old. Many species are diggers, and roost in burrows, which played a part in keeping the family alive.

Lemurs are small, secretive primates, and represent the oldest of the group. Lemurs date back to the original family, Adapidae, which goes back to the late Cretaceous period, about 67 million years ago. Today, Madagascar is known as being the traditional home of lemurs, but there are many varieties of prosimians, which are also found in Africa and Asia. But in their earlier days, they could also be found in Europe and North America. The only reason we have lemurs today is because of the isolation of Madagascar, and mainland lemurs are small and nocturnal.

Foxes are the oldest of the carnivores, dating back to about 65 million years, the late Cretaceous period. The oldest foxes are from Europe, but today, the oldest living fox species is Africa's Bat-eared fox. Bat-eared foxes even still have teeth that are more like those of modern insectivores than like those of true carnivores. The species it's self is very primitive. Today, we see how foxes have become such great survivors; because they are known for being clever animals.

The civets and mongooses are the oldest of the feliforme carnivores. That is to say, the carnivore superfamily that contains the civets and mongooses, hyenas, cats and panthers. The family of civets and mongooses (family: Viverridae) goes back to the early Cenozoic era, about 55 million years ago. Viverrids are a strictly old world family, and while the civets themselves are nocturnal, mongooses are mostly diurnal.

Horses are surprisingly great survivors! Though their diet is extremely specialized, they are very intelligent animals, which has enabled them to survive for so long. The first equine species appeared about 55 million years ago, which makes them older than any other hooved mammal around today. Their quick-wit, and superb running abilities are what has kept this family alive for so long.

I Should Have Been There!

Look at this sweet, solemn face:

Photo by Matthew Marsland.
I've got to say something. Next month is Michael's month and I've been actually putting off writing this post because of that. But I figured Oh well. I want next month's posts to be more positive about Michael. So, I am writing this now. I have to say something. I love Michael. More than anything in this world, except Timmy and my family and friends. LOL! Long list there of people I love! But I had to say something about this pic, it's painful to look at. He's got water around his eyes, which I believe to have been from crying, and even his smile in this pic looks sad. Usually when Michael smiled, it was so bright and cheery, it lit up the room! But this smile looks sad to me.

Well, I was told that the picture was taken at the ARIA awards in 1996, and Michael had received word that his home had been raided due to drug charges and that just tore him apart. Poor guy! This is why I just cannot support Michael's decision to want to be with Paula, because I believe she did these things to him. But Michael was still very sweet and generous to be handing out his autograph that day to adoring fans like the guy who took this pic. I'm sure he tried to hide his feelings as much as he could. I remember hearing about Michael being charged with drug possession in 1996, and at that time I was not even into INXS then. I remember thinking how glad I was that I was no longer an INXS fan at that time. But it was just odd that I even thought anything about them the year before, as my feelings about INXS were no different than they were at the time this pic would have been taken.

I just remember snapping with the thought in 1995 that Michael was going to be the first band member to leave us. I absolutely have no idea why I thought that, INXS was the farthest thing from my mind that year. I never heard any recent music from them that year, I just did not think of them. But for some reason, I thought that one day out of the blue. I do remember after I had that premonition, wondering if he was OK. But then I thought nothing more about it. I spoke to a friend who is a wiccan and a medium. Yes, I associate with wiccans too! I don't judge, they are actually very fascinating people who worship nature. She told me that Michael and I were, in a sense, spiritually connected. I don't really believe her, but then how can I? Michael and I never had a formal meeting, just an exchange of kissing. Sort of. LOL! But if we'd have actually met, I could have been Mrs. Michael Hutchence. hehehe! It's a very far-fetched idea, but it's fun to think about. Michael and I have a lot in common, I am finding out. I don't look like a supermodel. In fact, I am ugly as shit! But then again, so was Paula Yates. LOL!

I dunno. If I had been there and saw Michael in this kind of shape, I would not have been able to contain myself. I would have seen the tears being held back in his eyes, and I would have said "Are you OK, baby?" I've always been observant. And also always been too compassionate sometimes for my own good! But no compassion would have been wasted on Michael, I don't think! Though I am not so sure I would have gotten an answer. The band members all said Michael never liked to talk about his own feelings. Which is a shame! Because you hold them back like he did, they're eventually going to eat you up inside.

I once heard everybody has frequencies they work on, as individual as our fingerprints. That's what gives people their sixth sense. I think somehow mine and Michael's frequencies are very close to each other's. But how I could know some things and not others is way beyond me, and probably not meant to be understood. I just take it as what happened happened. I should have acted on them somehow. But the sad fact is, I didn't. I don't know exactly what I could have done to help him, I'll never know that now. But I'm sure I could have done something and it would have helped, even if just a little bit. I'm pretty good at making other people feel good. Always had that gift. That's because I laugh at myself pretty good. Even if others around me are laughing at me. LOL!

Facts About Chihuahuas Most People Don't Know

They are one of my favorite breeds. OK so many people know that by now. But in this post I decided to post facts about this lovable breed called chihuahuas that many people probably do not know. Most people think of chihuahuas as being useless and ugly creatures. Well, they are not. When you get to know them as well as I have, you realize what wonderful animals they truly are. And a well-bred chihuahua can be very beautiful too.

1. Chihuahuas are more than 3000 years old.
As a breed, chihuahuas are a very ancient breed. The techichi (now extinct) was the breed used in creating chihuahuas, which dates back to the Mayan empire. The techichi died out with the Mayans, but the chihuahua lives on today.

2. Chihuahuas have royal blood.
The techichi was kept mostly by Mayan emperors instead of blankets to keep them warm on cold nights, and regular folk were not allowed to own them. The 70s band, Three Dog Night, was named for the breed in fact, when royal folks would use 3 dogs on very cold nights. When the emperor died, their dogs were often sacrificed and buried with them.

3. Chihuahuas are a type of spaniel.
Though the techichi was a pariah type dog (or greyhound type), the chihuahua as we know it today was created when the orientals invaded Mexico, and their royalty brought toy spaniels, like pekingese, with them in their invasion.

4. Chihuahuas used to be bigger.
This is why people who say chihuahuas are "rats" annoy me so much! Chihuahuas used to weigh 50+ pounds in their earlier days. The techichi was the size of a modern pit bull, and chihuahuas were once just as big. It wasn't until the invasion from China came and bred these dogs down that chihuahuas got smaller.

5. Long coated chihuahuas are not "Made in Mexico".
The long-coated chihuahua is actually a creation made in the USA, by the crossing of other small spaniels, like the papillon, into the lines of chihuahuas. Long coated chihuahuas are just over 100 years old, compared to the smooth chihuahua.

6. Chihuahuas are one of the few "prejudice" dog breeds.
Chihuahuas are the only dogs that I really know of that are partial only to other chihuahuas. I have actually seen this firsthand! Back in Astoria, I had a neighbor that had a chihuahua, and I walked Minnie (my papillon) and Vegas (my chihuahua) to the mailbox and the neighbor's dog wanted to follow Vegas, but completely ignored Minnie.

7. The first chihuahua was registered with the American Kennel Club in 1908.
The first chihuahua registered in 1908 by the AKC was named Taco. It was one of the first non-sporting dogs to be registered by AKC and shown in a conformation event.

8. The Taco Bell Dog was actually a female.
Though she is portrayed as a male dog in the old Taco Bell commercials, and even given a man's voice, Ginger was actually a female.

9. Chihuahuas can live to be over 20 years old.
There is a specific line of chihuahuas from a breeder in California, that are well-known to live as long as 20-22 years. Though I could not tell you exactly which line it is.

Facts Vegans Seem To Reject

OK, every once in a while I gotta write up something on vegans. It's not that I want to demean my vegan friends, it's just once in a while they do something, or say something, that makes me scratch my head and wonder why they would think that. Vegans want to be above any form of education, at least some of the wild ones I've seen on YouTube do. Let me first get this out of the way, I do have vegan friends, and I've stopped trying to shame vegans already. I believe everyone has a right to their own beliefs. But these are facts that seem to be rejected by vegans all over. Even though there have been studies done to prove these facts are real. So, let's get started on these.

1. Plants are living things too.
Yes, I have actually met vegans (who are probably teenagers) that believe plants are not living things. The fact is, they really are. They are living things that just want to live as well. Think about that the next time you poke your fork in that salad. Those are actual, living, breathing things you are stabbing, and unlike a cheeseburger, that salad is not dead.

2. Plants feel panic when threatened.
Plants, just like animals, feel panic. They do not express panic the same way an animal does, they do it chemically. You know the smell of fresh-cut grass after you mow your lawn? That is the smell of grass panicking, alerting other grass stalks that there is danger.

3. Plants just want to live too.
Broccoli, cabbage, and brussel sprouts the way we know them do not exist in the wild. Wild versions of these vegetables are inedible because they defend themselves by producing toxins. They do that because they don't want to be eaten. What we get in stores or in our vegetable gardens, are the modified domesticated versions of these veggies. The fact is, whether it is a plant or an animal, every living thing just wants to live. But nothing has a designated 'right' to live, in the world of nature.

4. Cows are not that intelligent.
Vegans think cows know when they are about to be slaughtered. I got bad news for them, but they don't. They don't understand the concept of life and death. They may feel a temporary loss when one of their herd is killed, but it does not last long.

5. Vegans are hypocrites.
They call us meat-eaters hypocrites. But the biggest hypocrites I've ever seen are the vegans. Especially those who claim they do what they do for empathy towards animals, but then they bash other people who choose not to go vegan. Also, if you live in a house, or you have a garden, or you own a cat and you are a vegan, that also makes you technically a hypocrite.

6. No matter what the human race does, we are always going to be impacting other species in some way.
There is nothing we can do to keep our species going, and not in some way be affecting the existence of some other species. As I mentioned in my last post, we build houses, which takes land away from another animal. We plant gardens, which is encroaching on another animal's territory. And many vegans I know own cats, which kills all kinds of wild animals, and has even caused the extinction of many species over the years.

7. Eating meat is not a 100% horrible thing.
Again, everything we do is going to impact the existence of some other creature somewhere. Eating meat of an animal is not the worst thing that can happen to that animal. What is worse is if the animal is killed but not eaten. All those nutrients just go to waste then. Meat consumption is part of the natural cycle of living.

8. Humans were meant to eat some meat.
We are not strict herbivores like the vegans want us to believe. Strictly herbivorous animals have much longer digestive tracts than what we have. Herbivores can be identified by their natural pot-bellies. Humans are actually omnivores, which means we live best on a diet of both plant AND animal matter.

9. Face it, the only reason vegans feel for animals and not plants is because plants don't have faces.
It's a simple case of out of sight, out of mind. Animals panic and they have facial expressions that can show panic, thus making vegans feel sorry for them. Plants don't have faces, so they cannot show panic the way an animal can. They can only show panic on a bio-chemical level. But vegans do not understand this, because it is not actual, physically visual. Thus they do not feel sorry for plants.

10. Mushrooms are more closely related to people than they are to plants.
But yet, the vegans often eat mushrooms in place of meat. Why is that? Mushrooms also are living things that just want to live too. Don't they have a "right" to live without the threat of being eaten? Again, they use toxins to prevent themselves from being eaten by predatory humans. So, we should also not eat mushrooms, just like we should not eat animals.

I say, the animal is dead, it cannot feel anything. If we don't eat it, some other creature will. If you feel sorry for the animals, then also you have to feel sorry for plants too. You have to feel sorry for bacteria too. And viruses. These are all living things. They're all just trying to survive to reproduce. But we kill them for science, to prevent ourselves from getting sick, and in the case of plants, for food. But the cheeseburger we consume, is horrible and we are rotten people for eating it. It just doesn't make sense to me. The cheeseburger on our plate is the only thing on our plate that isn't going to feel pain when it is cut up.

10 Best Musicians Ever!

OK, in keeping with a new tradition, I have decided to make this post, discussing musicians that I think are the best ever. I love music. Not as much as I love animals, but I do love music. You all know that by now! I write about my love of music almost every day on this blog! Every thing I do is for my love of music. I used to prefer classical music when I was in middle school. But as I got older, I learned to like rock n roll music. I never would have learned had I not taken the bus to the voc school every day. I first heard rock n roll and fell in love with it in 1987, when I first started going to the voc school on a pre-vocational program. I heard it and loved it. I heard many different songs that sounded great! Need U Tonight being one of them. Anyways, here is my opinion of the best musicians ever!

Of course you predicted it! INXS had to be my #1 pick!! Need U Tonight was the first song I remember hearing from INXS, and it actually quickly became my favorite song of 1987. You could say it was INXS that got me started on rock n roll music, too. INXS are possibly the only band (besides #2) that combines great music with beautiful men! Some of the sexiest men in musical history are in this band. Michael is the best-looking singer I've ever seen in my life! While Timmy is the best-looking guitarist I've ever seen! My love for INXS cannot be measured in just the number of songs, but in the number of whole albums! They are the only band that, IMO, is that good! My favorite albums are Full Moon, Dirty Hearts, Kick and X.

2. Roxette
I know I've mentioned it, but Roxette has always been another one of my favorite bands, after INXS. I always thought Per Gessle was adorable! Never thought much about Marie Fredricksson, but she is a great singer. Per Gessle, like Michael Hutchence, had his own set of moves, which I thought were cute! I loved their album, Look Sharp, but their Joyride album only yielded a few good songs, including the title track and Fading Like A Flower.

3. Bee Gees
I've been a fan of the Bee Gees ever since I was a child. I used to have a wild, kiddie crush on Barry, who is IMO the best-looking band member. In 1979, ma got us a copy of the Saturday Night Fever album and my sis and I used to play that album over and over again! I loved Barry's voice! Plus we had Tragedy and Night on Broadway, which were also very good songs by them.

4. U2
OK, now we've passed the bands that I love for both music and cute men, and move on to bands/singers where the men are ugly as shit, but the music is good. U2 is such a band. Though I don't like any of their 90s stuff, their 80s stuff was pretty good. On my MP3 player, you will hear songs like Numb (the live version), Pride (In The Name of Love), and Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For.

5. Rod Stewart
He may not be the best looking man in music, but he does have quite a few very good songs. I have several songs of his on my MP3 player. His voice is very soothing and nice, and his songs have very good rhythm as well. Among the songs of his that I have are Do You Think I'm Sexy (my answer is no, but I like your voice), This Old Heart Of Mine, Downtown Train, Rhythm of My Heart, and one that he collaborated on called All For One. He has one of those kinds of voices that when you hear one of his songs, it brings back good memories. I know several of his songs have that effect on me! LOL!

6. Michael Jackson
Well, he was somewhat decent-looking before he went batshit crazy with the surgeries. And one must also remember he was a child-molester too. But one thing I cannot deny is he did have a good voice, and he's produced some great songs in the past. On my MP3 player, I have several songs of his. Such as Bad and Black or White. I also liked his work on Free Willy, but unfortunately not enough to put it on my MP3 player. I did also make a DVD of my most favorite videos ever, and that video includes Thriller. I like the video more than the song though. Though my sis Katrina does like the song Thriller. She likes the blood and guts though. LOL! It's the Beavis and Butthead in her.

I think it's pretty safe to say that the Swedes make some of the greatest rock music in the world! ABBA is no exception. Though the men are not that good-looking, not even halfway decent, they do have remarkable songs, several of which I have on my MP3 player. Among the songs I like are Chiquitita, Take A Chance On Me, Dancing Queen and Knowing Me, Knowing You. Though this group seemed to die out with the fall of disco, I still think they're pretty good.

8. Erasure
I first learned of this group when my sis was into them in the late 80s. The men are by no means attractive, but they have some very good songs out there. Some of the ones I have on my MP3 player are A Little Respect (I prefer the Big Train remix version), Blue Savannah, Oh L'amour and Stars. They have a great voice, and I like how their music combines regular rock n roll with a bit of techno-pop.

9. Aerosmith
Steven Tyler is pretty well-known for having a disproportionately large mouth! LOL! I guess that's part of his charm. It's certainly what helps him make those long and loud screams he always does in his songs. My sis Anna does not like this group, but Katrina and I think their songs are pretty darn good. I have several on my MP3 player. Among the songs I have of their's is Ragdoll, Dream On, Janie's Got A Gun and I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing. The men are not attractive though, I only like this group for the music. Nothing else.

10. Billy Joel
Well, I guess he was somewhat nice looking as a younger man. Although today he looks like the 80s called him and wanted their hair back, and he actually sent it to them! He has created quite a few good songs in his days. Many of which can be found on my MP3 player. Some of my favorites he's created was Downeaster Alexa, We Didn't Start The Fire, For The Longest Time, Uptown Girl, Don't Ask Me Why and Its Still Rock N Roll To Me. There is another from 1993 called The River Of Dreams that I used to like. Unfortunately not enough to put it on my MP3 player.

Sexy Chihuahuas!

Well, I gotta confess, I love chihuahuas! I used to not like them so much when I was younger, but as I got older and got to know them as a breed, I learned to love them. They are fascinating dogs! It thrills me to see band members of INXS, or their children, that own chihuahuas. They are such fun dogs!!

One of my friends this morning showed me this pic of April Rose Pengilly, the daughter of Kirk Pengilly, with her chihuahuas...

This one's name is Lily.
This one's name is Pixie.
Not only that, but she is wearing a chihuahua t-shirt!! I've seen that shirt, I always wanted it! As soon as I can lose some weight, I'm going to get it! If I were to wear it now, the poor chihuahua on the shirt would look more like a pit bull. Anyways, April is a pretty girl! And she has beautiful dogs! Lily is a gorgeous chihuahua!! Well, heck they're BOTH beautiful chihuahuas!! I just cannot imagine my own life without having a chihuahua. Though mine is now living with my sis in Montana. I miss him a lot, but at least I know he's still in the family. But I cannot be without a chihuahua, I just can't! My life would feel so empty. I don't have kids, so the next best thing for me is to have a chihuahua. Another INXS child (sort of) who owns a chihuahua is Pixie Geldof, who is the daughter of Bob Geldof and Paula Yates, and considered Michael Hutchence her father at one point. She too has a beautiful chihuahua named Buster.

Pixie with Buster.
That is a gorgeous dog! Kinda reminds me of Odessa! I miss Odessa. I didn't even get to see her before she died. But Buster there has the same poofy coat that Odessa had! That's why we called Odessa "the poody". It's a cutesy way of saying "poofy". I love chihuahuas because they are the best cuddlers in the dog world. That is originally what these dogs were bred for. But the fact that they genuinely love us is what makes that cuddling so special, especially after a hard day! It also helps that chihuahuas have adorable baby faces too!

Why So Negative?

You all want to know why I am always posting about other people? I'll tell you why. I have finally decided to reveal my secret. Well, maybe not so much a secret. But anyways, the reason is because I get more views that way. A lot of people have told me these blogs do not solve anything, and I have been accused of causing negativity on more than one occasion. But really, that does not matter to me. Its like people on YouTube who put sexy girl nipples in their video's thumbnail pic, but the video has absolutely nothing to do with sexy girls or nipples showing. It's simply clickbait. I admit it! I get paid each time someone clicks on my blog! Whether or not they show up on my online "spies". Its the views that count. And while a lot of people hate to admit it, negativity is what draws people into my blog. I've noticed that since I've gotten back from the shelter, I chose to be a lot less negative, except for a couple of posts, one was just an informant post, not meaning to point fingers, just informing everyone. The other was about the admins on this new group and why I have one on ignore, and why the other has me on ignore. LOL! I did not write that post with the intent to solve anything. If I choose to have someone on ignore, or if they choose to have me on ignore, then that is each of our rights. But since I've decided to stop posting a lot of negativity, I noticed my views have gone way down. And my cooking blog, which is about nothing but cooking--no negativity at all, has gotten almost no views at all. So, negativity is really what draws in the crowd! Thus the views. Thus more money in the bank for me!

I have chosen to take those posts down because first of all, I am trying to go in a different direction in my life. And second, someone told me one of the people I wrote about was suicidal, and the last thing I want lingering on my conscience is someone killing themselves because of this blog. Even if what I said about them was the truth as I saw it. I am always the kind of person who calls it like she sees it, and that is what I write about on here. I want to make money through my blog, but not that way. Believe it or not, I do have something left of a conscience! Sometimes I believe I am too compassionate for my own good! I've had people tell me I would not like it if my name was dragged through the mud and everyone believed it. Well, personally I don't care. I've said it on this blog before, back when Yvette was slamming me on her blog, I don't care what she says about me. As long as she's not saying I'm killing puppies or something to that affect, I don't care what she says about me. I don't even exempt myself from ridicule. Why should everyone else? But I think if a person is going to slam someone, then backup what you say about that person. I don't say anything about anyone unless I have proof. If I don't have proof, or only little bits of proof, I say I'm not 100% sure.

One of my friends was talking about Kim Kardashian getting robbed and tied up. I say "Who gives a shit?!?!" To me, that is nothing more than a publicity stunt. As one of my other friends put it, there's something fishy there. The Kardashians always have some cameras following them everywhere, and bodyguards too. How odd that the one time she doesn't have any body guards around, someone was just waiting outside for her to pass by so they could rob her specifically. I think it was done for the same reason as I write these kinds of negative posts, to pique peoples' interest again. People are getting bored with news about Kim's ass, or her kids--born in a talentless family and will probably all be talentless themselves!--so what happens? A big announcement comes over the news saying Kim Kardashian has been robbed to get peoples' interest in the family renewed again! I'm pretty damn sure that is what happened. It's all nothing but a stupid publicity stunt!

Cute, Cuddly, Deadly

I was reading an article about the most murderous mammals on the planet, and you would be very surprised at what it is! Its an animal that I have always loved, ever since I was in middle school, but one that the world has only come to know recently. I thought that this would make an interesting subject. Well, I just love doing these animal posts! I love animals, and I think I should do more posts like this very often. It sure draws away the negativity. Besides, I'm tired of focusing on nothing but negativity in my life. After living in that homeless shelter for a month, my perception has changed. Don't get me wrong! There are still groups of people I don't like, like radicals and irresponsible people are 2 groups of people I won't abide. But fuck them up their asses! Time to move on. I think it's what my pa would want anyways. He didn't even like me keeping blogs. LOL! But I am not going to delete my blog. I'm not even going to delete posts I made in the past. To me, that would be like denying I ever made those posts, so I won't do it. So, the only rational thing to do is to turn the subject matter around.

Anyways, here are some of the cutest, yet deadliest, animals on the planet. Not just mammals. I decided to include all groups of animals on here. All of them deadly in different ways; either for defense, or to capture prey, or are cannibalistic.

Slow Loris

Just look at that adorable face! It's a face you would not expect to be trouble. But this animal packs a hell of a punch!! They feed on toxic leaves, and thus sweat the toxins that accumulate from their food out into their flesh, making themselves distasteful to predators. These same toxins also get into their salivary glands, giving these primates a somewhat toxic bite. The bite can cause hours of pain for the victim, sometimes swelling, blisters, but rarely death.

Golden Dart Frog

There are many species of dart frogs, all in the family Dendrobatidae and all of them toxic. But perhaps the most toxic of all these frogs is the Golden dart frog (Phyllobates horribilis). Though it is small and unassuming, merely handling this frog is potentially dangerous, as the toxins on their skin quickly penetrates the flesh of the handler, and works fast! Within about an hour, the handler suffers sweats, nausea, fever, can go into seizures and respiratory failure and then die.

Blue-Ringed Octopus

I think these guys are cute anyways. But the beautiful bright colors are an indication that this animal is toxic. They harbor one of the deadliest toxins known to man, which is delivered through their bite. Symptoms begin to show up within minutes of being bitten, they include numbness, weakness, difficulty in breathing, swallowing, talking, vision impairment, nausea, and vomiting. In severe cases, death occurs as the muscles in the diaphram fail. There is some debate as to whether the toxins are passed by biting or by contact with this animal's skin, as some people have fallen ill even without being bitten.

Puffer Fish

We all know them, we all love them. They are as cute as a button! But Puffer fish are among the most deadly animals in the ocean. They do not have a venomous bite, but if they are eaten, a person ingesting them can drop dead within minutes. The poison is concentrated in the liver. People often eat these fish, but they must be prepared by a knowledgeable chef, who studied for several years exactly how to prepare this dish.


Often simply referred to as "meerkats", meet the #1 deadliest mammal on the planet. That's right! It's these little guys! They are not venomous or toxic in any way, but they are nasty-tempered little buggers. They are very territorial. Any intruders risk getting killed and even eaten by the established troup in the area. If a dominant male dies, and the female finds a new male, and has kits, that new male will eat the kits without hesitation, and may even kill and eat any subordinate males in the troup. These are definitely adorable animals, if you are not a rival suricate!

Grasshopper Mouse

These tiny rodents live in the southwestern USA and are reminiscent of miniature wolves. They are highly aggressive, predatory mice that will kill and eat any creature it can overpower. Often that includes small reptiles, tarantulas, scorpions, and even other small mammals. They are most active at night, and even are known to howl like miniature wolves, to communicate with others of their own kind. They are cute though, as mice go, and have actually been kept as very interesting pets.

Short-tailed Shrew

There are several varieties of these short-tailed shrews living all across the USA. They are small, though larger than most shrews in the New World, and deadly. They are deadly because they have a venomous bite. They are actually one of the few mammals that are venomous in any way. They use their venom to subdue prey. With it, they can tackle prey larger than themselves, which would even include such animals as mice. If a person is bitten, it would cause little more than skin irritation and a rash.


One of very few toxic birds, like the slow loris, this bird transfers toxins through the skin. The toxins are obtained from the foods they feed on, such as ants, and even some toxic berries and leaves. The colors on it's body are like warning signs. Any human that comes in contact with this bird, or is bitten by this bird, will develop skin irritation, rash, and sometimes even a burning sensation. Death would only occur if the person has an allergic reaction to the toxins.

Well, those are some of the most unusually toxic animals I can think of. Nature is wonderful, but sometimes she can be damn scary!!!

Death In Kid's Shows

Is it appropriate to have death scenes in kid's shows? Maybe. We were all exposed to them as children, sometimes without even knowing it. You know the popular little girl's rhyme "Ring Around the Rosie"? I used to play that with my friends when I was a kid, we'd all hold hands, forming a circle, and run around in that circle while singing that song, and then at the end where it says "We all fall down" we'd all hit the pavement. Well, most people don't know it, but that song was actually based on the deaths during the days of the European black plague period. The "ring around the rosie" was the boils that developed on the skin of infected victims. "Pocket full of posies" was how they used to mask the fowl odor coming from those boils. "Ashes, ashes, we all fall down" was when the victim died, they would be burned to ashes.

I guess having death represented in kid's shows is not so much a bad thing. Death is a reality after all. Though it is sad when it happens. But who knows what happens afterwords? Is it really a bad thing? I used to think it was the worst thing that could happen to a person. I guess if you're dying of a disease or something, and you'd been suffering, it's not so bad. At least in death you would be out of pain. I know my pa is now out of pain. But he was ready to go. I miss him. But I know he is in Heaven now, and happy to be with our LORD. Now, being murdered is something else. Like my Michael. Murder victims did not choose to die, most of them were not ready. It just happened because they came upon a maniac at that time in their lives. A lot of deaths have been portrayed in kid's movies and TV shows. Some were sad, some we watched and said "they deserved it!" Some we may have even been indifferent to. These are some that I remember and I have opinions of...

Bambi (1942)

Probably the saddest death I can remember in cartoon history. I remember seeing this when I was in 2nd grade and thinking it was so sad, it actually got me started crying! Not only that, but I had terrible nightmares after watching this the first time. I heard the real reason Disney had Bambi's mother get killed off in this movie was because he was still sad over the death of his own mother years before. His own mom was killed in an unfortunate explosion. Anyways, here is the scene.


Sesame Street - Goodbye Mr. Hooper (1983)

I still remember when this was first aired. It was Thanksgiving Day of 1983. I remember that because we were kids and we didn't go to school that day. Instead, we went to grandma's for Thanksgiving dinner. Grandma had just moved to our state from Louisiana, so it was the first time we spent the holidays with her. I'd heard for months prior to this that Mr. Hooper had died and they were going to announce it on Sesame Street, but I didn't know when or how. I guess they chose to air this episode on Thanksgiving Day because they knew all the kids would be home and able to watch the show. When each person (and bird) talks, you can hear their voice breaking. It's a very sad episode.


In addition, there have been several times Mr. Hooper has been mentioned and remembered throughout the years. Such as this episode from 1997.


The Land Before Time (1988)

I saw this movie when I was a little bit older and more able to understand the concept of death. I think I was 19 when I saw this movie for the first time, I had it on video. I had just gotten into dinosaurs because of Jurassic Park and my sis told me about this movie, so I wanted to see it. It was so sad seeing Littlefoot, the Apatosaur cub (whatever you'd call a baby dinosaur), lying next to his dying mother. It kinda gives a bit of the same vibe as Bambi's mom's death scene; it's raining and he's alone searching for his mom, the only difference is there is no father involved, and the movie actually has him by his mother's side as she's dying. Here's the scene.


Jurassic Park (1993)

Speaking of dinosaurs, I don't know if this qualifies as a "kid's show", but I do remember seeing an awful lot of children attending this movie when it was in the theaters. Kids love dinosaurs, after all. But I am not sure how many of them still loved dinosaurs after seeing a scene like this. This was the first killing made in that movie, and it was the scene where the Tyrannosaur attacks that lawyer after he ran into the bathroom, leaving the kids in the car unattended. Who among us saw this and said "that guy got what he deserved"? Or who saw this and said "Aww, he turned out to be a good guy in the end. He didn't deserve to die that way"? Anyways, here is the scene.


The Little Mermaid (1989)

Disney movies are full of death scenes. Some are not deserved, like Bambi losing his mom. But some are very satisfactory, like the death of Ursula in The Little Mermaid. Ursula takes on the original image of someone who really wants to help Ariel get her prince. But for what? She makes her pay with her voice! When that is why Eric, the prince, wanted to find her in the first place. She should have gone to her father first. Yeah he got mad at her the first time she brought it up, and he was kindof an asshole about it. But he eventually gave in once he realized she was seriously in love with Eric. Anyways, here is her death scene.


Tarzan (1999)

This one would piss off the catfags and pantherfags, but this movie has several death scenes. In the opening scene of the movie, there's this family of gorillas with a baby, and the baby meets Sabor, the leopard, who kills the baby. It's a scene that just breaks your heart! The baby gorilla did not deserve to die that way. Although that is nature's way, still it was a very sad scene!


But this is also how Tarzan came into the lives of these gorillas. And years later, he meets up with the leopard that terrorized his gorilla family, and kills him. This scene would piss off the pantherfags! LOL! But I say Sabor got exactly what he deserved! It was a good fight to the finish!


Well, that's my take on some death scenes in kid's shows. What do you think about scenes like these being in kid's shows? Do you think kids should be exposed to it? I dunno, with the way the world is, being too politically correct, I think it's a good idea to let kids know how the world really works! With all the political correctness people want to push on society today, kids will grow up thinking everything in life has to be fair. But it's just not. That's why I do not believe in political correctness. If we're going to be anything with our children, we might as well be honest. Life isn't fair! Never has been and never will be. We must learn to deal with it. Or else we will have many more generations full of nothing but wussies and fags.

How I Became an Animal Lover

I've always been an animal lover! Ever since I was a kid. I have always been much more at ease around animals than I've ever been around other people. Animals are great for comfort. They don't judge us, and our pets love us unconditionally. They never back-talk or connive us. Wild animals, for the most part, if we leave them alone, they'll leave us alone. People could learn a lot from animals. I know I go through my life like a wild animal. For the most part, I try to stay away from other people and go on about my daily routine. If I know someone, and I like them well enough, I'll say hello, sometimes talk to them. But sometimes too, I just want to be alone, with no other people around. I guess you could say I am a solitary creature, who communicates very little with others of my own kind outside my own family group. To this day, I still prefer the company of animals to people. And the more I learn about people, the less I like that race.

I've been an animal lover pretty much for as long as I can remember. No one else in my family ever loved animals the way I do. My ma even once joked that I must have been an animal in my former life, because I am the only one in my family that loves animals so much. If such a thing is possible, I may have been. I carried a lot of wild animal instincts into this life. If I was an animal in a former life, I wonder what kind of animal I was? Maybe a deer, or a gazelle, because I am a timid person. I'm generally quiet, and I don't even like to fight with anyone, not even if they attack me. Mostly I prefer to walk away from trouble as opposed to standing and fighting. Or maybe a dik-dik, or something small like that, because I like to stay concealed as well. Usually when I am in a big room with a lot of people, I like to seek out the most remote, out-of-the-way spot to have a seat in, where I won't be too noticed, but I can still observe everything. That's the way I've always been.

I think I've always had good memories of animals. My parents did everything they could to hinder that, but never succeeded. My first recollection of my love for animals was when I was in nursery school. We had a teacher that brought in this very tiny toy poodle and let each of us kids hold it. I remember it was so tiny and so cute, and it seemed to be smiling at me! I wanted to take it home with me. Holding that little dog made me feel a happiness that I never felt in my life. I wasn't even a dog-lover! I had friends that had dogs and I always hated them! But they were bigger dogs. This little poodle was so tiny and cute, nothing like the big monsters my friends had that would knock me down.

A couple years later, we moved to a rural area, and I had more friends that lived on farms. I remember the first friend I ever made in that area was a boy who lived on a farm very close to us. I used to walk over to his house every day. Well, one day I visited his place and he had baby chickens and baby ducks, and I could not resist them! They were the ultimate in cuteness!! I remember holding them and what I felt when I held them was different than before. I felt what I can only describe as being 100% pure love! A love like I'd never felt before. As I was holding these little darlings, I felt like the world around me had disappeared. All my attention was focused on these babies. Even when my friend was asking me to play something else with him. I didn't want to leave, I so enjoyed it there. Of course a lot of that dissipated when we got chickens and ducks of our own, and I would see babies like that every year. But even then, it was still a lot of fun when we had babies.

When I got older, and I started breeding australian shepherds, I got the same feeling. Whenever me or my boyfriend who helped me, had fresh new pups out of the oven, it was a happy, loving feeling to be holding them and loving them. Feeling them squirm in my hands, hearing their sweet little whimpers. Again, it was a love like I'd never felt before in my life! I was always excited when one of our pregnant females was expecting and I would wake up in the morning and we'd have baby pups in the nest. Same feeling several years later when we started breeding chihuahuas. Only these were half the size of the shepherd pups, and their little whimpers were cuter and sweeter. It was so easy to feel an intense love for these little babies. I always got emotionally attached to each and every pup, which came in handy when I was trying to find the best homes I could find for them. I always got compliments about how affectionate and intelligent my pups were. Well, I knew what I was doing! They went to their new homes pre-cuddled.

Well, I used to love cats when I was a kid, and yes, I knew several kittens that I had fallen in love with. A cat was even my first pet I can recall as a child. I used to have kids all the time trying to convince me that dogs were better than cats. But I just would not bite. Nowadays, I'd believe them! LOL! The reason I don't have cats anymore is because they don't last long in my house. The longest time period I've ever had a cat was 2 years, and I wound up sending him to a new home anyways. Partly because of my father. And partly because I was tired of him destroying things, and you could not train him. These days it's all I can do to keep the cats around here off of my patio. When I see them, I yell at them to get out of my yard. Lately, this ugly gray tabby cat has taken a liking to my porch. I don't like gray tabbies! Yesterday, when he came onto my porch, I opened the sliding door and shouted out at him "Go home, ugly cat!!" I don't know who it's owner is, and frankly I don't care! And I don't care if they heard me calling their cat ugly either. If it hadn't been a gray tabby, I wouldn't be calling it ugly in the first place! Get something better, then try me.

LOL! Reminds me of my dad! He used to hate chihuahuas, before I started breeding them. We had a neighbor that had a chihuahua when I was a kid, and that dog typically got out of it's yard. One day it did and me and my friend Tara were riding to my place on our bicycles, and saw that dog again. It had what Tara thought was a sore on the side of it's body. So, she picked it up and we rode back to my place. My father did not exactly like having that dog on his property. He shouted to us to "Get that ugly dog out of here!" I tell you, he HATED chihuahuas back then!! LOL! But he eased up on them when I started breeding them, and he realized what beautiful animals they really are when well bred. I dunno though, nowadays breeders are going more and more for the extreme flat noses in chihuahuas and I personally don't like that! They're beginning to look like pugs, not chihuahuas. I like their noses to have a little bit of length. Not a lot, but indeed a little bit. But they are still beautiful when well-bred.
