Went to fancy pet store and got Ada a bull stick, deer antler, and potato hedgehog to curb her need to [literally] consume literature.

Advice for Ada needed:
On Ada’s walk today, we met a German Pinscher that got very in her face. Friendly, but boisterous. I wasn’t paying proper attention and didn’t pick up on her body language quickly enough to realize she was uncomfortable, so she snapped at him. Other dog wasn’t hurt and the owner was understanding (she realized her dog is over-exuberant), but I don’t want things to escalate like that again. The moment it happened, she calmed down. There was no freaking out beyond that.
At the Petco, she met a bunch of tiny dogs and was perfectly comfortable with them. Other dogs on walks, she’s been fine with. But they were all her size or smaller.
I might have to watch out for bigger dogs in case she just feels threatened by them. She has a mark on her head that might be a bite received in her past, which would explain her apprehensiveness to big dogs.
It might also be related to the fact that she’s only recently spayed and this dog she met was an intact male. Not sure if that matters.

Store sold us a too small crate, so I had to bring Ada in to work to keep an eye on her since Clint will be out for part of today. Boss said it was cool, and she’s been very well behaved so far. Just chilling under my desk and enjoying toys. My coworkers love her.

Apparently the last pitbull picture I did got some crazy amount of views. So as an experiment, let’s see how well this derpy drooling patchwork blue-nose does.
It wags its tail. Ta-da!

It’s been a tough few months. I’ve been thankful for having a lot of the Umbagog peeps, my boyfriend Clint, my local friends, and my birds helping me out. But sometimes you just feel alone anyway.
I’m very bad at helping other people through their own tough times, but probably worse at helping myself. I’m happy people are there for me.

The original nicotine addict OC of mine: Ravage. He needed some love. Well some non-human illustrations anyway (since that’s his norm/default).

So I’m throwing my “gamebreaker” character into , Ravage, as a member of The Underground. Tamed him [mildly] for this. Even so he’ll be a hell of a handful for Jack.
He’ll be Raphael, or “Rav”. 18 years old, 5’7”, and black. He’s been in and out of the foster care for years and thus has a density of experience unusual for someone his age (Jack’s said before he was “born old”). Not to mention an independent and sociopathic streak that makes most people flinch. He was one of Jack’s students (one of the more troublesome ones) and while exceptionally intelligent, had little interest in classic education. He had plans to become a music producer before the world went to shit. He STILL thinks he can wrangle that somehow and is always searching for an angle.
Loves clubs (and club music). Would kill for a cigar, probably literally. Doesn’t give a fuck about you unless he declares you “important”, in which case he’ll still act like he doesn’t give a fuck about you. Unlike The Cat, his massive ego is entirely genuine. He’ll lie if it suits him, but more often blunt honest truth is his style. The kind of truth that makes you flinch.
He made the zombie cum comment. Nobody else had thought of it before. After that, everyone in The Underground got a little more squeamish around zombies. Rav found the revelation delightful!
He lacks a real filter between his brain and his mouth and so tends to speak his thoughts out loud. He doesn’t seem to have a strong sense of self preservation, maybe because he’s so damn confident he can take on everything and anything. Zombie killing is practically a hobby to him, and he gets WAY too much pleasure out of blasting them in the head or chopping them to pieces to be healthy.
He regards The Cat as more competitor than threat. He thinks The Cat’s style is wasted on the dead and will make snide comments besides when discussions crop up about him.
Rav doesn’t seem to have really let the seriousness of the situation sink in too far. It’s like the whole world is one giant game to him, with humans and zombies being the targets.

For , the Underground leader character.
Jack, you need to get a dog.
You can have my mom’s dog.
He’s pretty chill in the car (though he puked twice on the way up from my hometown to Umbagog). But I think an active little rat terrier might be good for you. He doesn’t eat much either.
Eventually I’ll find a way to introduce a dog to him. Somehow.
