In terms of Noem [View all]

This has been weighing on my mind all day.

How in the literal hell can you shoot a 14 month old dog for shitty training on your part?

I grew up in the sticks, and yes, there were times you had to put an animal down. None of those cases involved a 14 month old puppy. All of them involved very sick animals that were suffering. Those instances were quite rare i might add.

So when i got home this evening, I gave my rescue Border Collie a long hug and a lot of treats, a dog that nobody wanted and was left to die. There's a ribeye on the grill and he's getting some of that as well.

Literally, shooting a dog that gets out of line doesn't make you tough; it makes you a piece of shit....

(Update: the puppy dog just wolfed down half of a small ribeye mixed with his dry food. He's presently sawing logs on the bed, but his tail wags when im nearby and that, is everything)
