It's a Beer and Ambien Night...Ambien Girl bathes puppy mill dogs today



Yeppers....I just got home and slammed a beer and took an ambiem. It was a rough day. I got an email from the manager of a local no-kill animal shelter where I volunteer from time to time. The police department had arrested a lady who was running a puppy mill and the animal shelter had brought in 100 of the 600 dogs that were seized. The shelter was overwhelmed and needed volunteers to come and help out. For a little background follow this link and read the story....

The puppy mill owner (who shall be called "The Bitch" from now on) said that she loved all of her pets and took care of them. IS THAT POSSIBLE WITH OVER 6OO ANIMALS Ms. BITCH???? I think not. I saw these puppies first hand and bathed and dried thier fieces encrusted bodies covered in fleas and ticks. I cut away matts the size of a golf ball in thier fur. Does that sound like the way someone would treat their dogs if they love them? Trust me, these dogs did not know love. You could tell that most of them had never been held or cudled before. The stench coming off of them made me gag for the first half hour until my nose just finally gave out and accepted the smell. I'm not going to get into the gruesome parts, but these dogs were in dire need of medical attention. Not to sound insensitive, but as I am washing these puppies I'm thinking to myself "God they are in such bad shape don't let a leg or head fall off." That's how bad some of them were.

Most of these dogs have never had a bath in their life and guess who got to give them their first? Moi! Me, with my non-existant dog grooming training. I don't know who got more wet, the dogs or me. I must say there was one bittersweet moment tonight. After bathing a dog that had spent his entire life in a cage, we had to take the mats out of his tail. (I'm not talking your run of the mill house dog mats....these were huge!) Once we go through trimming his tail, he looked behind himself and seemed suprised that he actually had a tail that could move. And the best part of all.....he started wagging his tail for the first time since he'd been brought in.

It was soooo hard leaving tonight knowing that some of the other dogs in critical condition might not make it through the night. All I could do was say a prayer at thier cage and whisper to them that there's a special place in hell reserved for thier owner.

I hope my readers can understand that I'm not in the mood to be sassy tonight. All I want to do is grab my dog and hold him for hours.

  2. Thank goodness for people like you who are there to reach out and help these poor animals! You made their lives 100% better yesterday. There's a little doggie waking up this morning a little happier thanks to your efforts. Hopefully they'll put the bitch in jail.

  4. I've been taking Ambien now for about 8 months; I am also prescribed to benzos (clonazepam). Recently my doctor let me try a 7 day trial of Ambien CR- I did not feel much of a difference. I have read many of the blogs that people have written and they seem to have the same problem as me... sometimes it works and sometimes it does nothing! Actually its been two weeks since I last took it until tonight and it seems to be having no effect. If anyone has a solution I would love to hear about it. Thanks.
