I know that feeling all too well. I had to put my dog down about two weeks ago myself. He was my best friend for about a decade. He was there when my children were born and why my wife married me *He liked me and didn't bark at me lol* was my late snack buddy and hell my drinking buddy. I still miss him so much, but it's for the best for her/he and for you guy's as well. I was there as they put in that final shot and it's the worst but it's also a happy moment knowing that they won't suffer anymore. May your kitty rest peacefully bro, and may you as well get peace of mind through this.

It'll be alright, you'll be alright.

I’m so sorry to hear that. Losing two beloved pets in the same year must be gut-wrenching. I’m giving you all my sympathies.

My thoughts are with both of you, and your families. I had to put down my childhood dog nearly eight years ago -- he was in the advanced stages of a bone disorder and he was no longer able to walk. I haven't been able to forgive myself for not being with him as he passed, although I was offered that opportunity. It's still devastating to think about, and although I have another dog now who I love just as dearly, I'll always miss my old guy, and always regret that I wasn't there for him in his last moments.

Anyway, I say all that to preface this poem I discovered not longer after his death. It's heart-wrenching, but beautiful, and the loveliest tribute to a lost pet I've ever seen. It helped me as I grieved, and I hope it will help you guys as well. Have a good cry, recall the lovely memories, and you'll stay strong.

Suppose to be leaving for vacation in a couple weeks but my boss is refusing to give me the time off even though I was already told I could have it off months ago. Trying to get my request officially denied so I can take it up to HR but they just keep giving me the runaround. They don't want to give me the time off but nobody wants to be responsible for officially denying me the time off either. Everything is already bought and paid for and most of it is non-refundable.

That's the type of nightmare scenario where I'd consider my employment, but obviously you need a way to support yourself so easier said than done. In the future though if you have an emergency or something more important, just remember this and don't feel bad if you have to abruptly quit or get poop done.

It was the coldest June day in Sydney for 37 years yesterday. Now I have a cold. My throat is sore and my nose is sniffly. Last night was one of the worst nights I’ve had in a while.

Got screamed at and threatened by an angry old man because I went in the wrong area on my bike. I couldn't see any indications anywhere telling me I even was in the wrong place. Wish this dang stuff was made clearer.

Today I learned about Megaloceros, and I thought the name sounded cool as hell, but when I went to google pictures of it, it turned out to be a skreeonking deer. Imagine my disappointment.

A deer larger than the moose.

Now think about how dangerous moose are.

A NECA Alien I ordered came in today! A clamshell original too!

......motherskreeonker snapped at the right arm and left foot almost instantly after I took him out.

44 dollars, right down the skreeonking drain.

This is why I've reluctantly decided not to buy NECA toys anymore. As much as I've liked their Predators, there have been just enough incidents of breakage from using the toy's most basic features that I've called it quits. They list their goods as "non durable". Not even joking.

This is the worst post I've seen in a long time. You're officially a bad person now.

You don't live in an area populated by moose, do you?

Hey, give him a break, at least moose didn't go extinct from their antlers getting stuck in trees.

but yeah, Megaloceros is pretty neat. Not super neat, maybe like 6 out of 10 on the "underrated Cenozoic Megafauna" scale, but it's neat.

Finally going to bed after a shitty work day and finding out apparently, for like the THIRD time I can recall, some assholes are spreading around a skreeonking video of gore on sites to "shock" people, mainly children.


Just....what the skreeonk.

What makes people do this poop.

I'm skreeonking disgusted and going to bed just...disappointed in humanity. Just avoid any videos called DuckPack 51 with the thumbnail of a girl dancing. PSA for yall.
