Why I’ve been missing my beloved pet peeves for years
I’ve spent the last few months researching dog peeves and finding a place to share my experiences.
The research has been incredibly hard.
I’ve lost friends, lost dogs, lost pets, lost cats, lost relationships and, of course, lost my beloved pooch.
In an effort to share the experiences I’ve had and share them with others, I’ve taken to the internet to share stories and anecdotes about peeves.
I’m no stranger to online pet peeve sharing.
I spent most of my childhood searching for my pet peeved dog.
For many years I was a pet peever myself, until my first pet came along.
My first pet was a little brown bear named Billy.
I found him at a flea market and instantly recognised him as the bear who peed in the dog bowl at Christmas.
Billy lived in a small area of central Victoria, but my mum, who lives across the street, was a bit of a bear-lovers’ dream.
She would often sit down to watch me play with Billy.
She would often look at me with those big green eyes and say “Are you sure you’re not Billy’s dad?
He doesn’t even look like a bear.”
Billy was a very happy and gentle little bear.
I loved him dearly and I thought that I was going to be forever bonded with him.
But when I started to notice his peeves, I realised that my beloved bear was not a happy or gentle bear.
He was a spoiled little boy with a temperamental temper.
I was shocked that a pet owner who had such a devoted family would not be able to tame his temper.
When Billy’s temper got out of control, he would urinate on my face and then try to run off with me and my friends.
He would also try to attack us, with our dogs and our cat.
One day Billy went out with his friend to a park where they found a small creek.
The creek ran out and Billy got on a bench.
Billy got off the bench and started to run up the creek, with his friends chasing after him.
Billy started to urinate all over the bench.
At first I thought Billy was just going to sit down and enjoy himself, but I could tell he was getting really agitated.
I got up to help, but Billy was already running away from us and running up the hill.
I knew he was in trouble.
I tried to calm him down and ask him why he was peeing on the bench, but he kept peeing all over my face.
“Why are you peeing in my face?”
This is when he went berserk.
Finally, I got on top of him and tried to push him back down the creek.
Billy tried to run back down to the bench with me, but his friends were chasing him.
He started to attack one of them.
I just held him down.
Billy was panting and trying to uriate all over me.
I finally pulled him back onto the bench by the creek and yelled at him.
“Billy, what are you doing?”
I was really afraid of him.
But Billy just stood there and continued to pee all over everyone.
We called the police.
They arrived on the scene and took Billy into the local vet.
After a thorough examination, the vet concluded that Billy had an enlarged bladder, which is known as a prolapsed bladder.
So, Billy went through a procedure called a prolapse bladder repair.
It was the perfect ending to my story.
With the help of the local vets, Billy was discharged from the vet.
I still feel very lucky to have had a wonderful relationship with my beloved Billy.
