OH, wait...you mean like each month of the year, and not your birth month...okay, I'm in. AHHH I haven't been to bed yet...brain is asleep...
And my birthday- August- is a peridot, which lets face it, besides eye products I don't know what you'd do with. I guess if they included packaging colors, maybe. I don't know how it could work out some months.

I received a call about 1 hour ago from the humane society. They promised to let me know about Boxer's blood test results because they were concerned he might have parvo since we have other pets. They told me it wasn't parvo but an extreme case of valley fever that was affecting his breathing and heart rate along with making lesions on his spine. They had to put him to sleep, poor thing was suffering too much. They thanked me for taking Boxer in so that he wouldn't have to die a slow painful death out on the streets alone.

I'm not gonna lie.. I cried after the phone call ended. My conscience and I are on track but it just makes me sad that an innocent animal can get so sick. I mean it's not like they can go up to you and tell you what's wrong, they're so brave and just deal with it and stay happy through it all. I feel the same way about children. ❤

Thank you all again for being so sweet and considerate of these posts regarding Boxer. MUT girls are the best!

I am so sorry to hear this but it fills my heart to know of people's kindness. You were able to give Boxer comfort at the end of his life and had he been able I'm sure he would have given you a wet and sloppy kiss to say thank you.

The courthouse had armed SWAT and K9 operators throughout in the event he decided he would not go peacefully. In the end, the man's defense was too flimsy to hold water -- his argument was all the State's witnesses were lying and he was being targeted -- and the jury found him guilty on all charges.

 

So if you're having a beer tonight, crack one open for my husband and the two other cops, the witnesses, the victims, and the families. And the fact that none of us were murdered in our sleep! yey.gif

I'm putting this little story behind a spoiler tag because I realize not everyone will want to read it, but today, some SERIOUS justice was handed down in my town and totally made a bad guy its bitch!! So I'm pretty happy :)

Sweet Justice! Awesome story to begin my day.

I really hope that works out for you, and doesn't totally blow up in your face. At this point with Ipsy, anything is possible. I could see them sending you an empty mailer and then saying, "Well you didn't have your quiz filled out, so we didn't know what to send you." Or something like that. icon_eek.gif

What I do want is my bag to arrive ontime with correct shipping info

Aww... so sad, but good on you for getting him off the street.

My story is in the spoiler along with a couple pictures of the doggie. If you have a soft heart I recommend not looking at the pics.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I'll call him Boxer (since that's his breed). I live on a busy street across from a park. When Boxer showed up on my block yesterday he obviously looked lost so I tried to lure him with food to our yard which is fenced in, but as I would get closer he would run away. He eventually ran across the street into the park and I knew I couldn't catch up to him. My mom and a neighbor walked around the park looking for Boxer but didn't see him anywhere. I noticed it was urgent he received medical attention as you'll see in the pictures.

I called animal control to pick up Boxer, which I've done before with other lost dogs that show up that we don't recognize as belonging to anyone in the neighborhood. I have a serious soft spot for any animal especially one that is hurting. So I hoped and prayed all afternoon/last night/this morning that Boxer was found and safe.

Around noon today I hear the dogs in the back yard barking like crazy so I look out the front window to find out whats going on and I see Boxer stumbling around. I felt so relieved he came back. He was in the next door neighbor's yard (which also has a fence) so I ran over there and closed the gate. Poor Boxer just layed himself in the dirt exhausted. I could tell he didn't have the strength to stand up anymore.

I called my mom on the phone and had her bring me a leash and an old bed sheet. We picked up Boxer and put him on the sheet then used the sheet to carry him to our yard and layed him on the soft grass. His body felt so hot. I called animal control again but they told me it might take them 3 days to send someone out to pick him up because they're really swamped. I wasn't sure what to do. He is in really bad shape. Literally skin and bones. It surprised us how heavy he was, we struggled to carry him.

I decided to call the animal hospital we take our pets to for advice. After explaining the situation they told me to feed him a little bit of cooked white rice and give him small amounts of water. They also advised me to contact the local humane society. I called there and was told to take him in since they don't do pick ups. He ate the rice and drank some water then we put him in the back of my truck on a dog bed. My mom rode in the back with Boxer and I drove.

When we got to the humane society a woman walking a dog in the parking lot noticed we were having a hard time trying to get Boxer off the truck.

She asked " Is that your dog? "

I said " We found him "

She came a little closer and yelled " That dog is in distress! Run into the office and tell them Maureen says to bring help! " Then she ran into a different office.

I ran into the main office and told the girl " I'm the one who called in about the boxer and Maureen said to bring help. " You should've seen those people move! I went back outside and four men were at my truck picking up the dog bed with Boxer laying on it so helpless. They rushed the dog into the clinic so fast I barely noticed 3 of the guys were wearing orange jumpsuits from the dept. of corrections.

Me and my mom went into the clinic along with a couple of girls that ran over from the office I had barged into.

We did some quick paperwork then a man came out to ask me questions regarding how I found him and told me Boxer was so dehydrated they couldn't get a blood sample right away because his veins were so thin. They were going to have to wait a couple of hours for the IV to plump up his veins and try it then. He also said Boxer has a microchip but it isn't registered so no information is on it. They estimated his age at 2 yrs. The man said they are going to try everything to find the owner. I told him I could put up flyers at the park I live by and he said they would take care of that. I told the girl at the counter that I was extremely concerened for Boxer and asked how I can receive updates on his status. She gave me an ID # that is assigned to him and told me to call in and ask about him. Then we got in my truck and drove home.

My heart hurts for Boxer. I really hope he gets better. I really hope they find Boxer's owner and if not I'm sure I can find someone I know to adopt him. Please send him a little prayer or send him loving thoughts to recover soon. He was so cute and gentle. I know Boxer will love you so much for it smile.gif

Here are 2 pictures I took of him laying in the grass:





Thank you all soo much for reading this and just know the love and kindness you send out will be received with Boxer's open heart!

This broke my heart, I hope he gets better and finds a loving home. He was very lucky to find you. I will keep you both in my prayers.

This is so heartbreaking. Thank you so much for doing what you could for this sweet baby in need. I wish more people had the compassion it took to go out of your way to help. I can not imagine my 2 very loved dogs wandering around that sick..

I'm with you on that one! I'm October so technically my birthstone is Opal, which I love, BUT most places use a pink one instead! Apparently October has 2 different stones. And I hate pink... Ugh.

Out of curiosity, I checked the quiz on my second account and all of my answers from when I signed up were still selected. Glad I decided not to mess with it since it seems as if they fixed whatever issue was causing it to default back to blank. 

post #293 of 3584
I still cleared all mine out just to see what they'd send. It made me select skin and eye color so I'm guessing, with no other items selected, I'll probably just receive the Crowd Pleaser bag. It doesn't really matter what I get anyway. I like everything most months (except June).

I thought about doing this, too! But, I'm afraid I'd regret it We'll see...

Me TOOO! I was just a few hours away from being an opal Girl (November 1st bday) the whole yellow/orange is awful IMO.

I'm a January baby, so my birthstone is garnet.  I'm not too wild about burgundy colors, so I've always clung to my astrological birthstone:  Amethyst.  But!  I knew there were green garnets, but I just discovered that there are garnets of just about every color.  Green, orange, yellow, blue (the blue ones actually *change color*!  I'm guessing it depends on how light hits them), brown, pink -- you name it.  I would love to have bags curated -- or, hell, nail polish designed -- by people who dig a little deeper into stones and went to unexpected but technically valid places like blue-shifting-to-purple for garnet.
