Endless sick and injured animal stories, closing, of course, on a manipulative cliffhanger ending to tweak the heartstrings of the animal lovers.
It doesn't work on all of us! The more of her stories she tells of selfishly forcing an ill or old animal to linger when it's time has clearly come because she can't face the pain of losing it, the more I despise her.
I've had cats and dogs all my adult life and the decision to put a suffering pet out of its pain is the most difficult thing animal-owners have to face. But ultimately allowing them to go is the final loving act of a responsible owner.
But that's 'responsible' owners and a million miles away from the selfish LJ who treats them as possessions and would probably grieve just as much over a lost buttery-soft handbag as she does over her pets.
