    We contacted a drug training kennel and they were full and not interested. They are as much breed snobs as agility people ( I did agility 15 years ago and walked away from it because of the things I...

    Your the kind of person I'm looking for. Unfortunately I'm in Texas. My sister is weak with dogs, she treats hers like live stuffed animals. As much as I have tried I can't get her to be firm with...

    Rescues are useless. I have worked with them before, or tried to. Dealing with their egos and arrogance is frustrating. Unless you are one of "them" they don't have time for you. I ended up with a...
  9. Frustration with rehoming a rescue. or Why I hate rescuing.

    Last fall someone brought a starving and injured puppy into my sister's classroom looking for someone to foster her. She had a badly infected foot and internal parasites etc. Of course she took her...

    Reminds me of when I jumped off the top bunk and landed on a deer vertebra laying on the floor. Left there by my brother. OUCH! Hope your feeling better.

    So sorry for your loss. May she live on in your hearts and you see glimpses of her in other dogs who cross your path.

    One of my favorite poems is "The Power of the Dog" by Rudyard Kipling....

    I'd move the charging base closer but they stay in 1.5 acres and the closest place to plug it in is in a tin barn and I don't think the signal will reach. Maybe the battery wears down because they...

    I have kinda mixed feelings about the Whistle tracker so far. The battery barely lasts 2 days when on them 24/7. My dogs are outside and even thoughntheymare penned up at night they aren't close to...

    My backdoor entrance, which is most commonly used, is into my dog porch. Usually I send the dogs over to their couch when people come in and out. One isn't comfortable with strange men and another is...

    I got my trackers and put them on the pups. A couple of questions. Do you leave them on 24/7? Or would you if the dogs are outside all night. They are put up but it's possible, especially as they get...

    I just ordered 2 Whistle Trackers. They had a special that ends today and I did the math and it was a better deal. My main concern now is if they chew them off each other. Check them out. The sale...

    I looked at this comparison https://www.podtrackers.com/pod-vs-whistle-tagg
    Pod is waterproof and seems to be a little cheaper over all. I'm a bit concerned about them chewing on each other's as...

    I'm not sure what answer you want. I think most have said it was disrespectful. Obviously your friend doesn't feel that way. It's pretty much about how you were raised and what you consider to be...
