Anyone who knows me knows that I love to take pictures and videos of my adorable family. And for some reason, a lot of the videos end up on National sites like “Good Morning America”, “People”, and others. I’m not sure why that is, but I’m not complaining. I’m very proud of my baby and animals, and am happy that other people seem to enjoy their antics.
Well, over the holidays, I was visiting my family in Tennessee, and I was having coffee on the couch with my “Cash” while my then 14-month old son Brandon was rolling around in his Joovy Walker. He was rolling it into the couch trying to get Cash’s attention, and Cash was totally ignoring him. I started filming it on my phone to send to my husband, who was out hunting at the time. During the time I was filming, Brandon tugged on Cash’s tail a little bit, and Cash’s reaction – to me at least- was hilarious. So, I posted it on TikTok, and it went viral. And then it was posted on “Good Morning America” this past weekend, and the comments are INSANE.
Check out the video link below.
Ok, so I do feel the need to defend myself here.
#1: My dog has never shown a thread of viciousness, or else I would never, EVER let him near Brandon. Ever.
#2: They are NEVER together unsupervised.
#3: Um… that wasn’t exactly a tail pull. Come on, people.
#4: ANIMAL ABUSE??? Are you freaking kidding me?
#5: This was the ONLY time Brandon tugged on his tail. You would think the way people are acting that he was doing this on the regular.
I’ve been online since the dawn of social media. I have seen plenty of things I don’t like or agree with, but for some reason, I never feel triggered to comment. I guess I have a life, and I don’t have a terrible soul that gets off on putting other people down on a public forum. Thats not a bad thing.
I feel like when people act like that, it says way more about them than it does me. And yes, I know I do ask for it, being that I am in a public business and post videos that may go viral, but still… I feel like in this case I should be able to throw an explanation in there, as the entire population of Karens seem to be coming at me.
More than anything, I just want to remind people that there is ALWAYS a backstory, and so please think about that before you slam someone online.
And if you do feel the need to be that way, please learn to spell and punctuate correctly, or your comment will be deemed invalid.
Be nice, people!
It’s not that hard.
