Or so everyone thought.

Second Day Of Crufts 2015
I already knew my friend was cruel to her dog. Then, I made an alarming discovery.

My friend has a dog, and she’s always been kind of half-assed about caring for it. I’ll see her out at a party or a barbeque all day long, so I know the dog is home alone, and sometimes she goes out right after she finishes a shift (she’s a waitress, so that might be pretty late), without even going home to feed the dog or let it out. The other day, though, I went over to her house and realized things have crossed a line. There were piles of dog feces in a couple of corners, and the entryway rug was soaked in urine when we walked in. She laughed it off and called the dog naughty, then cleaned up the poop and basically ignored it. I’m worried about the puppy, and about my friend; what kind of person does that to an animal? Should I call animal control on her? More

“[My mom] said she’d just bought some hair dye and electric clippers and that she wanted me to give her something fun to play with,” Sarah told BDCwire.

Sarah delivered.
