Canadian Pet Expo!

This is the first thing I’m writing about for my 2015 list! Yay!

I actually forgot to put this on my list even though I knew about it for about half a year. I was at a reptile expo with my boyfriend when we got a card that told us about it, I was dying to go and begged my boyfriend. My boyfriend really just wanted to go for the reptiles but there wasn’t very much there, he still of course bought a frog.

Lets get started on my experience!

Well we started our morning off right with a shower, and Starbucks then headed our way there. The pet expo was held at the International Centre in Toronto, Ontario, it’s not a far drive from where we live so it was easy drive. We found parking no problem even though the place was packed since so many things were going on.

When we got out of the car there was a huge line up to get in but it was going extremely fast, and the best part is, you’re allowed to bring your own dog so you had so many animals to look at and pet! It was so much fun, there was actually so much going on. There is hundreds of vendors there, it was Canada’s largest cat show, Ultimate Air Dog show were dogs jump into a pool to get Nerf toys, Birds demonstrations and Reptilia was there. There was probably so much more that I missed you can’t even believe how big this was.

I love both cats and dogs (and of course reptiles) but the only thing I didn’t like was the cats. Their owners were old ladies who wouldn’t allow you to touch them and if you did they would walk away from you and lock the cat up in a crate. We didn’t spend a lot of time with the cats because of that and not to mention the cat show seems mean to me. The dogs on the other hand, owners let you pet the dog, some let you give them treats, they talk to you about their pets, they were fun.

The best part for me was petting the big Newfoundland dog that was there. I grew up with a Newfy Dog so I was in love! I didn’t take pictures unfortunatly but you can go online to look at them all at http://www.canadianpetexpo.ca/

Next year my boyfriend and I said we would go for two days instead of the one because we missed out on the pigs and ducks that I wanted to see!

Thanks for reading,

Montana.

Feb 14th, 2012

This was the day that my ex boyfriend broke up with me for the hundredth time and made me walk a 30 walk home from the mall. When I got home I was done crying once again after hearing the same words over and over, and of course it was Valentines day. I believe I had to work this day as well, so I worked my shift that ended at 9:30 pm and when I came home my sister came into my room with the phone in hand with my dad on the line. My dad told me that our dog was really sick and that they don’t know if she was going to make it. He told me that I could come up to see her tomorrow if I wanted but I couldn’t because I had to work and finding a cover was really hard, especially last minute.

Feb 15, 2012

So the next day my sister went up to see her and I went to work thinking that I could see her on the weekend. My sister came home and everything was the same as it was the next day so I thought I would be able to see her, but when I came home my sister once again handed me the phone with my dad on the line to tell me this time that our dog Montana had died. I was completely crushed because everyone had gotten to go up to see her to say goodbye at least but I didn’t. Now every year on Feb 15th I put a picture up on facebook, write in my journal “R.I.P Montana,” and cry my eyes out because I miss her so much. 

Feb 15, 2014

My boyfriend called me to just to talk before he went to play video games to tell me sorry that he worked on Valentines day, that I won’t see him until Sunday and he knows the 15th is a hard day for me. I was good until he said that, I held back my  tears until we got off the phone and now I’m crying. I thought I would write this because maybe it would help a little bit but this is going to take a lot of time.

I’m sorry I didn’t get to say goodbye to her, it honestly kills me all the time when people bring her up. I know she’s in a better place, not feeling pain or being sad. I just miss her like crazy. 

R.I.P Montana 
I love you,
I miss you,
and I’m sorry I didn’t say goodbye. 

Sochi Animal Cruelty.

I’m sure you’ve all heard about the Olympics on TV, radio and such, but have you heard about what they are doing to animals over there? 

Now I’m just going off of what I’ve heard and read about, I’m not naming names or anything. I’m just writing about what I’ve heard and my opinion of it. If this is going to bother you then you better stop reading now. 

You’ve been warned. 

The first thing that I heard about was with the whales. If you’ve haven’t heard about the whales, the situation with them is two wild whales have been captured and are being put in a tank on display for the Olympics. When whales are captured and put in captivity their life span is extremely shortened and they can suffer from sensory deprivation. When you take an animal away from where it lives, you’re taking it away from it’s family. All you mothers and fathers, imagine someone taking your child away from you and not knowing where they are going, how would you feel? It’s the same thing, so don’t say I’m blowing this up by comparing it to humans. Every person and animal have families, they were made, they have mums and dads, they have someone who loves them and taking those whales away from their families is animal cruelty. 

After hearing about this my opinion of Sochi was they’re assholes. I’m sorry if you live there but this is what people are thinking, I’m just saying it out loud. Yes whales are beautiful and fun to see because it’s not something you see everyday but why do you need to take them away from where they live? If you really want to see whales that bad, go whale watching but this is completely stupid. I honestly don’t understand why they even thought of this, what does a whale have to do with the Olympics anyways? Cheer for your damn country and that’s that. 

There is a petition that you can sign to get them to put them back in their homes which has been sent off to see if it will work. To me, this is not a positive imagine for Sochi at all, if anything it’s just making them look bad. Yes you want everything to be perfect and look amazing but this, this is too much and isn’t right. 

The second thing I heard about going on over there was with dogs. Apparently they have a lot of stray dogs around where the Olympics are being held and instead of taking them to a shelter and trying to get them better so people can make them pets and take care of them, they hired a company to kill them off. 

There first thought was to kill them off because no one wanted them, how the fuck do you know if someone doesn’t want a dog? I’ve had dogs my whole life, they are amazing animals. They’re the only animal that I know of that freaks their shit when you come home, they literally wait all day long for you to come home and to get some love from you. 

Now I’ve heard they after this got released, the company said they would make a shelter for them but no shelter has been seen being built. I’m assuming they were lying assholes and continued to do what they were doing. Once again Sochi, you look like a complete dick.

Now to me if anyone abuses animals in anyway (which includes taking them away from their homes), should be shot. They are helpless, they don’t speak English so they can’t beg you to stop. I yell at people if I see them being mean to animals, it’s so wrong on so many levels. Anyone who abuses animals is a sick fuck and you might as well be in the same category as a rapist.

After hearing about these two things it made me say I wasn’t going to watch the Olympics. All they want is money and they are doing it all the wrong ways.

I really hope Sochi fixes these two fuck ups because I know this isn’t going away for them, it’s just making the place look terrible.

That’s just my opinion.
