Lanett was right!!! These people have no respect for privacy!

When I l found out I was joining the SA GREYS family, I checked them out on social media. Most of the hounds gave SA GREYS five stars and made positive comments, so I discounted Lanett's alarming account of having her private parts scrubbed in public.

Now here I am with a splashy hose, soap on my boy parts and prying hands in places they were not meant to be. Goody, who is laughing at me, doesn't know she's next. I'm not going to tell her.

My Struggle is Real,


P.S. Things took a turn for the better after my bath. I got to run around the yard, play with a toy and best of all, lean on peoples while they pet me. You should still file an adoption thingy right now and get me away from these people. Who knows what they'll do next.
