    It doesn't seem like there's much actual proof that delayed s/n creates a significant health benefit/reduction of risk, yet this idea seems to be the hot story suddenly in dog magazines, etc. It...

    It's funny how people will get a clue when you're direct. As in: "Come and get your dog or I'm calling animal control." Though AC is notorious for not responding unless there's a pool of blood on...

    I always feel for the 'dumb question' person in these scenarios. As OP said, if you have always ridden, you just can't comprehend WTH the person who's never ridden is thinking. They don't know what...

    I had a similar issue with my 16yo dog recently - a mass on her shoulder that went from weirdie little probable skin tag-like thing to a bloody, disintegrating mess. I was lucky in that it was...
  6. Asshole dog that wasn't quite bold enough to...

    Asshole dog that wasn't quite bold enough to follow through. I don't buy that it was guarding the car. How could it have established a territory outside the car, to the extent that OP's car and...

    She's cute, and she is a great size. The shyness is unfortunately typical for collie types, but you might want to check her head/ears at the vet just to make sure there's no pain reason for the...

    And that's a classic pit bull owner response to a pit bull attack. "Eh." Now, if the story was about a pit bull whose owner had been forced to buy expensive insurance, well, then the tears would...

    Doleanz has lived as a black woman for decades, cutting herself off from family who would obviously know it was untrue. I think it's got to be more complicated than a simple intellectual decision...

    I was quite shocked, the time I looked into vet tech wages, how low they were. They aren't really the nurses of the vet world, considering nurses (RNs, at least) make great money and have quite a...

    It's going to be interesting watching society figure out exactly what's "true" about physical identity and what can be realistically left up to feelings/emotions/intellectual impulse - or what you...

    Oh dear Christ, not the "breed is irrelevant" bs again. Three categories of dog breeds have a heightened tendency to be predatory and kill other dogs. The first two, the sighthounds and the...

    Before trying a prong, I would try backing off the group activities for a time, and focus on the dog without other dogs/people around - private lessons, walks/runs alone in quiet areas, etc. You're...

    Kindle yay or nay?

    I've been toying with the idea of buying an e-reader, mostly to buy books on Amazon, and they're running a back to school sale for their basic model, $59.99 instead of the usual $79.99. But because...

    Mutt. A bonafide pi-tailed, prick-eared, short-coated little result of free-roaming doggies. Bet he's too smart, super dog-smart and a little aloof.
  17. Perhaps the owners were pleasant airheads who...

    Perhaps the owners were pleasant airheads who adopted on a whim, did zero work and surrendered when it all got too boring. It happens. But I don't find the facts presented quite as cut-and-dried...

    I find is funny/sad that a few people made a big distinction between preparing food and cooking. Yes, there's a difference between a homemade cake and a cake mix, and I would be annoyed at getting...
  19. I don't. When you own a dog that will maul and...

    I don't. When you own a dog that will maul and kill a human, you're essentially asserting your right to inflict the death penalty without trial. This is utterly unacceptable for an individual, a...

    Well, that must be tough. But I wonder why you assume the problem is that you didn't ask the adopters enough questions. That might be true, but it seems just as likely the rescue group didn't...
  21. I'm with the people who have noticed the opposite...

    I'm with the people who have noticed the opposite from the OP: we've come to a place where every dog bite, no matter how massive or how unprovoked*, is excused by a mass of hysterical, screaming...

    Perhaps it's not fair. But our current system of many people working full-time jobs which pay so poorly they cannot afford to live without government assistance is also unfair, and it's far more...

    I don't curse in public - I will curse to myself, or with very close female friends in private, sometimes. I get very, very irritated with men who curse in front of me.
  24. Get window a/c units for the two upstairs...

    Get window a/c units for the two upstairs bedrooms (presuming one for OP and husband, one for teen) and surrender the downstairs windows to mother. It's a losing battle.
  25. I see your point and have had many a frustrating...

    I see your point and have had many a frustrating skirmish with people who seem compelled to take over every project, but it was a little karmic. You were, after all, making a point that you and the...
