It Ain't Easy Eating Green

A VEGAN ODYSSEY

I am the only Intelligent Vegan / My Dog is Dead

As one of the cowardly "anonymous" fucks from the Vegan Freaks message board indicated in the 'comments' section on my last post, I have been banished from their site. This was the error I received when I attempted to log in:

vBulletin message

You have been banned for the following reason:Don't talk shit about us and expect to be welcome here. http://thelifeofpreston.blogspot.com/2006/03/preston-educates-some-stupid-vegans.html

Date the ban will be lifted: Never

It made me laugh when I saw it. Especially that last bit! The rigid inflexibility of NEVER reminded me of my debate with them -- how they were so unwilling to accept the truth. But the truth hurts, as they say.

But I'll tell you, I'm also hurting pretty badly right now. No, not because of the board fiasco; I could care less about that. And no, not because of my ex-girlfriend, Brittany.

My Dog, Marx, died last night.

When I got home from class, my Mom had this sad look on her face and she told me to sit down at the table. I knew something was wrong. I kind of pieced it together in my head before she even said anything, actually, because I saw Marx's worn red collar in her hand.

She told me that a couple of hours earlier she had heard Marx wimpering outside. (We have quite a large property and the dog has always been allowed to run around without a leash, since he always knew to stay clear of the road.) When she found him on the back porch, he was bleeding and could barely walk. She said it looked as though several of his ribs had been broken. When my Dad was told of Marx's condition, he took off his collar and drove him to the vet, where he had him "humanely put to sleep." There is no fucking way what happened to my dog can be called "humane" -- he was only seven, and I should have had many more years with him. I'm so mad I didn't get the chance to say goodbye.

I know for certain that he wasn't hit by a car. He never went near the road. I know what happened, because I saw something similar to this with my own eyes before. Marx would often go into our neighbor's yard and tear around. The bastard next door would always threaten that he was going to shoot Marx one day, but I never saw him with a gun. I did see him repeatedly kick him once, though, and I'm certain he did it again, only much more viciously, since he was apparently in very bad shape.

My fucking Dad didn't even bring Marx's body home so I could bury him. The vet probably just tossed him in their dumpster like garbage. It makes me want to throw up. Actually, it makes me fucking furious, and although I have no proof, I want to get back at my fucking neighbor. That fucker murdered my fucking dog! Actually, the vet is technically the one who killed him, and my Dad is the one who gave him the order... but that fucking neighbor is the cause of this.

I don't understand why he hated Marx so much, either. I mean, he'd shit at the very back of the guy's lawn from time to time, but the guy's never even out there to use his yard! Even in the summer, he just lets the grass grow long and never cuts it. All he ever does is go out to the back porch to smoke cigarettes and barbeque. I swear, the fucker's out there like, every night, polluting the air with the smell of cooking flesh. There's got to be some sort of by-law against that.

I'm so angry I can barely type. I'll report back to you on this matter.

To bad you are such a asshole, otherwise I would feel bad for you. Instant Karma...........

Karma?!

You stupid fuck! My dog was kicked to a bloody pulp, you insensitive asshole. Karma doesn't affect the lives of others; if this were karma, something would have happened to me, not my DOG.

It was HIS life that was taken. An innocent life.

Hey Deud,

I'm not sure if you are an asshole or not, but I am sure that I sympathize with you on this occasion. My dog Opus was taken from me far too soon due to cancer. He was a great dog, and I took it pretty hard.

My condolances.

Thanks, M. Cantsin.

Sorry to hear about your dog, also.

Sorry to hear about your dog. Regarding your disagreements with that vegan forum, I often get the same frustration reading some Catholic blogs and although I sometimes write some incendiary comments, I haven't been banned. Yet. Maybe cos I don't tend to get into arguments. Don't give people the satisfaction of being able to take the moral highground from you when they're the ones being stupid in the first place...

Very sorry to hear about your dog. Your neighbour is a sadistic freak and I hope he pays for what he did.

Sorry for your loss. For what it's worth, I don't think the vet tosses the expired dogs in the dumpster like garbage. I heard that they sell them to the Koreans. Hope that helps!

preston, you're an idiot, but I do feel bad for you and the loss of your dog.

I'm very sorry to hear about your dog. My sympathies and condolences.

Seriously though, I do like dogs. Sorry about your loss.
To bad it wasn't a cat...

Your dog called me from Heaven and said that it was the Phish songs that killed him not being kicked.

Preston, I'm sorry to hear about your dog. :(

Just ignore the assholes. They aren't worth your time or energy.

Yes Preston, best to conserve what little energy you have (from a vegan diet).

Studies have shown that Vegans actually have more energy than meat-eaters.

 
At 9:54 AM, Blogger Meatlover Skillet said...

Actually, that's a myth. It is popular in sports nutrition to recommend "carb loading" for athletes, to increase their endurance levels. But recent studies done in New York and South Africa show that the opposite is true: athletes who "carb loaded" had significantly less endurance than those who "fat loaded" before athletic events.

skillet:

vegans don't only eat carbs, you moron. Have you heard of beans? tofu? seitan? whole grains? meat analogues?

your argument shows your ignorance of all things vegan. no one said anything about carb-loading, meat-for-brains.

"vegans don't only eat carbs, you moron."

Where did I say that vegans only eat carbs? Show me, please. Maybe you should lookup the meaning of "carb loading".

"Have you heard of beans? tofu? seitan? whole grains? meat analogues?"

Why, yes I have. I don't see the fat dripping of them though, do you?

you're so silly, skillet! hmm, silly skillet-- i like it!

anyways. read an ingredients package, for once! there is plenty of fat in vegan foods. and you can always ADD fat. Ever hear of olive oil? oh, or year-- deep fried tofu! these are all high fat.

granted, it's not the artery-clogging saturated fat you'll get from your meat products-- but saturated fat is not an integral part of athletic training. actually, all that cholesterol and sat fat would most likely be detrimental rather than helpful. silly goose.

"ADD fat."

ADD this, ADD that. What a waste of time when you could be sinking your teeth into juicy fat that's already included.

silly skillet! way weak come back!

There are no vegan athletes. They're all too busy furthering their cause to perfect their bodies. You know this.
