Annie Oakley tattoo

I just got my homage to Annie Oakley Friday. When I was in the third grade I wrote a paper about her, and found out that not only are we both Ohioans, but we also have the same birthday. She was one of my heroes growing up, much better than the Kardashians and slutty pops stars that young girls have today. As usual, Reb from Old Town Tattoos in Ashville, Ohio did a kick ass job. Old Town Tattoos

It's been a while

I can't believe it's been almost two years since I've posted on here. Now that I'm in school, I'm going to try to keep up on it a little more. Hopefully.

Yet Another Bigfoot Let Down

The new bigfoot photo looks very, very fake. I'm pretty sure it's just some guy in a snowsuit. It doesn't even really look like a gorilla costume. I used to believe in bigfoot, but the more I see of "proof", the less I believe. I'm kinda bummed out by this, what would be cooler than there being a huge, undiscovered ape living in North America? When I was looking for the photo on Google today, I found this gem of a website. I'm almost thinking this is a hoax, or the person who put it up is ape-shit crazy. I do not see anything in any of his photos, which is odd because I'm always the first person to see crap in pictures that probably isn't really there.

Murphy is my two year old Jack Russell. I got him from the Pickaway county dog shelter in early August of this year. He was originally named Cesar, and was an owner surrender. He got dropped off because he was growling at kids. Having three little brothers, I discovered that he does growl at them if they're running around like maniacs. I've been having my youngest brother, Brendan, give him treats and it seems like it's helping his outlook a little.
Murph also has major dog aggression issues. He's great with my rat terrier, Lucy, but I have yet to meet another dog that he doesn't want to murder. He is never, ever allowed off leash at the park. I'm too nervous another dog will run up to him. I've been playing fetch with him and my mom's lab, Gus. He is okay with him, but gets severely pissed if Gus reaches the toy first. He will grab the other end of it and dangle from Gus's mouth. He will keep retrieving long after Gus has gotten tired of it. Which is saying something, because Gus is a field bred lab.
I would recommend the Pickaway county shelter to anyone who is looking for a new dog. They actually give a crap about the dogs there, unlike Fairfield county's shelter. Pickaway co. opened a new shelter early this year, and it's pretty nice. Very clean looking and much more inviting than lots of the county run shelters. The dogs all get vaccinated and come with a certificate for a free exam and fecal at different local vets. They also help with low cost spay/neuter.
