    Yes, that's my point. The idea that only "rescue" people can have a real, valid viewpoint on rescue or unwanted animals is what I was criticizing and what you keep illustrating. I'm not sure why you...

    I envy men the service they get. The men's section of most department stores is right AT the major entrance, no searching out the women's ghetto, which is almost always hidden at the back or upper...

    Yeah, that's the kind of circle-the-wagons, no-outsiders-needed, us-rescue-folks-are-the-only-ones-who-get-it, attitude I was talking about. Thanks for illustrating!

    I'd check them on Amazon - if they have ISBN numbers on the back, it's quick. Usually, a popular paperback like a Dick Francis mystery or a Danielle Steel romance will be worth a penny. But anything...

    Jingles. The first photo of her nose is aaaawwwwww, adorable.

    I don't seek out horrible stories and I keep in mind that an evil act is not the sum of our society or of our species. Not to accuse the OP, but just on a related note - I find the rescue world's...

    My brother had a similar experience. It took doctors a year to figure out the source of recurrent infections was a dental abcess, which was not painful and so remained undiscovered for a very long...

    Gay men and divorced men, big deal. Call me when Pope Cutie makes so much as an off-the-cuff remark about women - prefereably one more liberal than "Women, as such, are not the pestilent sinbags we...

    Breyers.... Mine are stabled on top of a bookcase and in a closet, along with some random horse models from other makers. Amazing how deeply you could live in make-believe as a kid. Between toy...

    #1 with bullet - extra key.

    2) Some idea of who to call when - sure, the landlord gets the call for broken pipes and 911 gets emergencies, but it's also nice to have a list of numbers for the gas...

    Jingles for the 19yo (that's amazing, so cool) dog!

    Ideas (just random):

    Maybe she's afraid of being left alone outside? Not to suggest you're chaining her to a tree for 6 hours or anything :), but at 14, right after being sick, maybe she's...

    I'm not sure why people get so antsy at the idea of people being "kept alive" in situations like this. We have very nice laws which allow you to clearly state "Just pull that plug if I'm in X...

    Oh, no, someone said something MEAN about my pibble! There is something monstrously selfish about the intentness with which pit bull owners pursue victimhood and ignore the real victims - which...

    Life tested it and it failed. What's the point of redoing the test? We know it readily uses extreme violence in random settings - that's all we need to know. Yes, it's very sad for the pit bull...

    I hope your dog's recovering well, Bluey. Flexi-leads and harnesses are insanely stupid to use on any larger dogs with great pulling ability, particularly a pit bull.
