Jenelle Evans is trying very hard these days.
She's not trying to be a better mom, or to turn her life around so that she'll never again experience something like this summer's child custody crisis.
No, she's trying to give the public the impression that there was nothing wrong to begin with.
You see, Jenelle thinks she's the victim of a character assassination campaign orchestrated by her haters.
Or at least that's what she wants you to think.
Naturally, the incident that she's most keen to bury from her recent past is the one in which David Eason shot and killed her dog.
Unfortunately, it seems there are still a lot of questions that need to be answered about Jenelle's treatment of animals on The Land.
Take a look:
Jenelle and Nugget
It wasn't all that long ago that Jenelle's 11-pound French bulldog seemed to be the ideal pet.
Poor Little Guy
Tiny, docile, and good with kids, Nugget was a regular member of the family -- until David destroyed him with a shotgun during one of his infamous fits of rage.
The Worst Person
David claims the tiny Frenchie was such a threat to his family's safety that he couldn't be allowed to live. For obvious reasons, no one believes that.
The ensuing CPS investigation led to authorities removing all of Jenelle and David's kids from their home. Evans has since regained custody of two of her three children.
Jenelle and David have both been fired by MTV, and they're both doing everything in their power to avoid getting real jobs. That means they have to salvage their reputations so that she can continue getting paid to post sponsored content on Instagram.
David and Jenelle also claim to have several business ventures in the works, which would require them to be on good terms with the general public.
