"Pet Polls"

Just ranted to my coworker about the girls upstairs and their acquisition of a puppy.  In case you havent read it, here's the brief summary:

They purchased a mini black poodle from a man in a parking lot who told them it was pure bred.  This causes me all manner of craziness since I think it just encourages bad behavior all around.

My fellow animator at work things I am overreacting in the extreme. 

And so...a poll!

Poll #949592 Pet Procurement Poll

Would you buy a pet from a stranger in a parking lot?

No.  Pets should no be impulse buys.
9(22.5%)
No. I have no idea the history of this animal.
2(5.0%)
No.  It encourages bad behavior of the pet owner to not fix their animals!
0(0.0%)
Maybe.
6(15.0%)
Yes...look how CUTE it is!
0(0.0%)
Yes.  At least they're not just dumping the animal.
4(10.0%)
Yes...look how CUTE it is!
0(0.0%)

Am I being too judgmental of my roommates?

Yes.  Just because they didn't adopt from a shelter doesn't make them bad pet owners.
2(5.0%)
Yes.  Not everybody has to do everything like you would.
9(22.5%)
No.  Pets should not be impulse buys.
9(22.5%)

6(15.0%)

Am I being too judgmental of pet owners who don't fix their pets?

Yes.  Some pets have cute babies and have no problem giving them away.
1(2.7%)
Yes.  Not everybody *has* to fix their pet.

    I miss the long form writing I used to do with my life. I should get back to it. Is anyone still here?

    Got a notice that if I don't do a post every so often they'll delete my LJ account. I'd rather that not happen.

    In no particular order: 10. So?!! Well, the very short version is, I didn't get the job from Pixar. 9. Longer version? The slightly longer…
