Thanks, everyone who expressed condolences about my cousin. It was a long time ago, and it's mostly scabbed over, but I was left with deeply angry feelings about the whole issue of driving drunk.
On a cheerier note, you all have displayed such restraint in not using the word "pupsicle" even once in this whole thread. Kadooz for that!
And I'm not making light of Tinsley's loss in any way. The only thing worse than seeing the person at the animal hospital with the dying dog is being that person, which I've been too many times. Or vice versa. Unless you're Bethenny and stand around watching your dog seize for an hour without getting in the car and racing to the vet but choose instead to do some kind of Anna Magnani impersonation on social media. I don't live in that universe, thank God. But I can absolutely envision myself doing what Tinsley did, panicking and dialing 911. So no shade from me.
