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 don’t usually reblog SJW things but this one is actually really good, like, less aggressive and just honest. Yeah, there are lots of unsexy men in sitcoms who date hot girls. It’s actually a thing. I never thought about that. And the last one… well that’s a punch in the face really. well done, these guys! We should spread this thing, and not just on tumblr.

Tuckered out, 3 hours of sleep after DJ Abilities last night.  Then woken up and went to family swim day.  Fuck I need to sleep for 3 days.

update time, Have not really had the time to put forth the effort to posting anything personal lately.  I have been working alot and going through and trying to make changes in my life.

I have been working two jobs and doing as much as I can with this summer as possible.  Being able to enjoy and make some memories with Ari and Kyla.  Saw Outkast and fell inlove with Andre 3000 all over again.   I will  be moving again in about a month.  Taking Kiki and Artimas with me.  I am going to be living with a great friend, someone who has known me since highschool. She is one of the humans in this world I can trust and know I am going to be safe.  I am tired though, of the constant move and changing my home setting.  I am ready to embrace a homes setting knowing I am with someone who understands my core and I understand theirs also.  It was not even a question in my mind of a yes or no.  Only yes.  I am starting another chapter in my journey, One to be excited and relaxed for.
