I moved to my friend's apartment couple weeks ago, i recently found out that he smokes ice (crystal meth) i have a five pound chihuahua and a 13 pounds shih tzu, I'm worried that the second hand smoke in the apartment can harm my dogs physically or mentally, i'm worried because it seems that sometimes they're acting weird or feeling down, Can the smoke be harmful to them?
SInce meth is not like cigerettes where smokers smoke so much it looms in the air. The second hand smoke from meth is most likely not dense enough to do much. but like sex the only way to prevent anything bad from happening is total abstinence. I would be more worried about him stealing the dogs and selling them for more meth.
I believe a dog's finest hour, the greatest fulfillment he holds dear, is when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle-with a ball in his mouth."
You obviously love your "kids" & if I were you I'd be packing lickety-split to get yourself & your two dogs out of that environment ASAP! I know crystal meth causes incredibly violent rages & your two dogs are much too endangered (as are you!). Not only that but meth users generally attract other meth users & you shouldn't be exposed, either, to the "unsavory" characters that will no doubt be coming in & out of the place. And, should your "roomie" be busted it's more than likely that you, too, will taken along for "the ride" unless you can somehow justify innocently living in a "meth house" - & who would watch over your dogs then? Please move...
" I can't believe you'd willingly live in a meth house. You can't be that dumb. :| "
I second that. HELLO ! Not only are you and your dogs living in an unhealthy enviroment ( go read up on what ingredients go into making the stuff ). but you are also setting yourself up for three hots and a cot. If the law comes down on that place, you wont have to worry about your dogs , because the state will remove them, along with everything else in the place. Brew yourself a cup of coffee, and wake up and smell it..........
If you are a dog and your owner suggests that you wear a sweater, suggest that he wear a tail.
I have to say.... this might be the first time on this site I have said the following: Forget about the dogs............ this is a bad place for you! Nothing good happens around meth. Sorry. Dogs or no dogs, you are in a horrible spot. That is retarded.
"Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else."
I agree with Lucky Lady. EVEN IF he hasnt done anything to make you think he is a bad person, i know first hand how these people can be and the moment they see ANYTHING, hint a PURBRED dog, that they can seel for money for meth, they'll take.
rick21bm,if the dogs are getting enough second hand smoke from crystal meth or crack, being that they are so tiny, of course it can affect them.If I were you, I would get the dogs and you out of there, because he will sell one or both of them for that crap.
I would be moving out of there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (not jusy for the dogs, but for me,too) you might could get addicted to it cause second hand smoke is just as strong as if you smoked it yourself. thats why i moved out of my dads hpuse
