To The Person Who Abused The Dog I Now Love

To The Person Who Abused The Dog I Now Love

You damaged her, but you didn't break her.

The other day, my mom went to get our fly swatter to kill a bug. In fear, my dog ran into the other room, hid under a table and wouldn't come out. When we use a stern voice, her face cowers and she backs away terrified. She barks and shakes in fear when people she doesn't know or trust walk by. This is what you did to her.

I don't know who you are. I don't know what exactly you did to this precious, sweet dog but I know you messed her up. I know you used your hands to do more than pet her. And I know that your life must be pretty miserable to take your anger and your failures out on an innocent creature.

For some reason, you decided it was okay to hit a little puppy. You scarred this little pup for life. And even now when she lives with people who wouldn't lay a hand on her in a million years, she is still terrified that we will because of you.

There is no excuse for what you did. Plenty of people have bad days, years, lives and don't take it out by beating a living creature. Plenty of people have pets who misbehave and they don't train them by beating them senseless. You had an always loyal, sometimes pain-in-the-ass dog and instead of loving her and playing with her and training her, you hit her. If she was too much, you could have given her up for adoption. But you didn't.

My heart breaks to think of what her life was like for the time you were her owner. It makes me sick to think of my sweet little pup being battered and beaten for no good reason. You, sir or ma'am, are scum. You are a horrible person who deserves nothing good. If it hasn't already, this will catch up to you.

If you were wondering, she is doing well. She has a big house with a big yard and she runs around and plays all the time. She jumps and smiles when her humans get home, no matter how long they were gone. She wears a pink collar and loves when someone accidentally drops some of their food.

She belongs to people who pet her and take photos of her and play with her and laugh at her and more than anything, love her. She did not deserve what you did to her, but she is happy now and I'm sure, somewhere out in the world, your miserable self is not.

You damaged her, but you did not break her. And now nothing ever will.

The End Of The Semester As Told By Todd Chrisley

Because we're all a little dramatic like Todd sometimes.

The last 3-4 weeks of every college student’s semester are always crazy hectic. We have last minute assignments, group projects, and exams all squeezed into the last few weeks before break.

Sometimes we all need a little humor, and sometimes we are all a little dramatic, so why not experience the last few weeks of the semester as told by the king of drama himself, Todd Chrisley of Chrisley Knows Best.

1. Sitting in class listening to your professor explain upcoming assignments/exams.

2. When your group project members refuse to do anything until the night before it's due or just show up the day of to present.

3. When you and your roommate try to cook with whatever few ingredients you have left in stock.

Because we definitely want to avoid going to the grocery store at the end of the semester if we can.

4. When your parents get tired of you calling them about every little inconvenience in your life.

5. Sitting down to work on assignments.

6. Your thoughts when the professor is telling you what they want from you out of an assignment.

7. When you've had about 30 mental breakdowns in 2 days.

8. Trying to search out the class for the right group members.

9. The last few days of classes where everyone and everything is getting on your nerves.

10. When your friend suggests going out but you're just done with the world.

11. This. On the daily.

12. When all you want to do is snuggle up and watch Christmas movies.

13. Studying and realizing you know nothing.

14. When your finals are over and it's finally time to go home for break.

You're finally back to your old self.

Poetry On Odyssey: Hustle and Bustle This Holiday Season

"...Have conversation, turn off the cable..."


It's Holiday season,

Time to be freezin'.

Thanksgiving will be here before we know it,

Don't stop now, you can't quit.

Numerous trips to grocery stores,

Pure mayhem when you walk through those doors.

Shelves bare,

You're ready to pull out your hair.

Long check-out lines,

Or delayed airlines.

Prepare and cook the turkey low and slow,

Wait for that golden brown skin to glow.

Place the gravy and cranberry sauce on the table,

Have conversation, turn off the cable.

Before you know it, Christmas is here,

The classic songs are music to our ears.

Yet we all dread the trips to the mall,

To find the perfect gifts, big or small.

The Christmas Tree Lighting floods TV stations,

With singers from all generations,

The scent of candy canes fill the air,

We wish the day runs smoothly, Lord, hear our prayer.

Lots of wrappers and bows cover the floor,

As we obsess over our presents more and more.

New Year's creeps up on us,

Throwing a party is always a plus.

Streamers, noisemakers, food,

Who knew planning the perfect party was of this magnitude.

The line at the liquor store gets longer and longer,

Because of the stress in picking a champagne or sparkling cider.

Deciding to prepare finger foods or a five-course meal,

Why not get take-out? DEAL!

Clock counts down from ten.

As the clock strikes one, we've made it to another year, AMEN!

Glasses clinking,

People drinking,

"Happy New Year,"

We cheer.
