Vent - Doberman Cropping Judgement. :(
long time reader, first time poster yay! This post is really just a vent...I picked up my new puppers yesterday from Dr McBride in Florida. She is beautiful and I love her and we named her Rumor, I am absolutely elated. But after getting home today I am exhausted, granted it was a 700 mile drive, with a puppy, and a stop overnight in a hotel, so Im cranky and hangry on top of the exhaustion.
I get home today, bust through the door to show Rumor off to my fiance and our good friend who is a DVM. and the first thing out of my friends mouth isnt about how sweet or pretty she is instead its a comment about the ears. "oh look at those, I cant beleive they still do that to just babies, oh poor thing" then my fiance chimes in "oh really friend? they dont look good do they? does she need to go the the emergency vet? Kelly are you sure they are ok?" Seriously this is the first thing I hear upon arriving home and I just bust out into tears...I was tired and hungry but Im still really hurt by it. Then friend goes on about how "bring her in tomorrow we will do laser therapy on her monday tuesday wednesday" so on and so forth. I wanted to scream, I dont want to be judged on this..what did they think they were going to look like? they came home standing up and healed?!?!? I also do not want to go to a vet who is going to lecture me or talk down to me or judge me. Im just upset, its silly i know but it hurts for some reason. I should just toughen up i think
