Will you drink from the toilet, too?
My mom never gave her standard poodle a water bowl and just let him drink from the toilet instead. I never gave him any attention because of it, even when he probably needed it. Sometimes I wonder if I might have been the only one that would be likely to give him any attention, for as much as he seemed to need it from me. Sometimes I also wonder if he died earlier because of it.
It shows a lack of character to dishonor one's mother, but I am no decent man. My mother is a genuine hillbilly. It is an indisputable fact.
