This Story Just Makes Me Sad
Justin Beiber was in his hometown of Stratford Ontario, Canada yesterday (home for Christmas, I’d imagine) doing some Boxing Day shopping when he decided to stop in at the local pet store – You know, just to window shop. Because everyone does that. Or something.
Anyway, so he’s walking around the store when he notices an adorable American Bulldog puppy named Petey and falls head over heels in love with him instantly (I don’t blame him – have you ever seen an American Bulldog puppy?). He picks up a bag of food and some toys for the pup and adopts him for a $600 fee (The way it works here in Ontario, the OSPCA sometimes puts their animals in PetSmart to help get them adopted out. It’s a great idea in theory).
So why am I sad?
Justin doesn’t exactly have the best track record with pet keeping. One time, he adopted a hamster that he later gave away to a random fan (the fan apparently wasn’t the best pet keeper either, because the hamster passed away). Then there was the monkey he thought would make a good mate – You remember the one. He decided to abandon the poor thing in Germany instead of get it its shots. That’s right; the one and only thing that was standing in between Beiber being able to take the monkey back across the border was getting it vaccinated. Now, correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t a good pet owner supposed to get their animals vaccinated regularly? And while I don’t personally know anyone that keeps a monkey as a pet, I think if it were me, I’d be more concerned about getting a monkey checked out than even my dog. So, I think it’s just a matter of time before he decides he’s bored with this sweet little thing too and gives it away. We’ll keep you posted.
In other news, he’s decides (read: threatening) to retire. What I don’t think he realizes is that teenage girls don’t really care about him like they used to. Personally I think it’s a great idea, his five minutes of fame have been up for awhile.
What do you think? Should Justin have even been allowed to adopt the puppy (given his track record)? How long do you think it’ll be before he gets bored? Do you also think it’s time for him to retire? Let us know in the comments!
