    1) You can have a little fun in a rational discussion, and hyperbole is fun.

    2) You're being a bit knee-jerk yourself. I have no idea of the difference between the 2 items mentioned, and probably...
  2. Speaking of "the bond" and immature women with lion-tamer fantasies...ranty

    A wannabe dog trainer in NC talked the local pound into handing over a GSD that was slated for euthanization - it came in as an aggressive stray, then bit (repeatedly) a canine cop who was going to...

    I have to say, Bluey, that I did rethink a bit on the feral hog topic today and I will admit, it is a more wide-spread problem than I implied.

    1) It's called hyperbole. I wasn't suggesting the average farmette owner is looking to invest in machine guns.

    2) We're not on a gun forum, so your horror at my misuse of gun terminology is a bit...

    Nice weather is the devil. Today I went one way to avoid Pit Row, ran into a lady with the giant Newf who I keep running into, turned to avoid her, and ended up walking past a woman doing invisible...

    If your dog is in good shape and still closer to mature than senior (and at 10 in that size range, he probably is) this is a good time to get a dental. My dog had her first and only dental cleaning...

    I'm sure. But this argument reminds me of the LGD breed people who insist a that they NEED a 100lb dog that bonds more to livestock than to people and regards strangers as prey. How many 1,000 mile...

    Of course they did.



    Of course they are.



    Because it's easier, because animal control agencies are often hotbeds of pro-pit bull activism, and because the pit owners regularly and with...

    The first photo, where she has her legs kind of tucked to sit on the boy's lap, made me think Dachshund. You could get all 21st century rescue creative and call her a Feist :) but personally, I think...

    The "a gun is a tool" argument is weak. A hammer is a tool. A car is a vehicle. A gun is a weapon. The hammer and car can be used as a weapon - you can beat someone to death or drive over them - but...

    Brrrr, $1600 in 2 months is nasty. My sympathies. There are times when you feel like you're never getting out from under with a specific type of expense, and I've had those years with vet bills. I...

    It's not that I hate guns so much as I distrust them. There are certain things that seem to unlock the worst side of human nature, and these things are all connected to power, and are able to lend...

    I doubt a dog spray would work on a killer. I've only used spray 2-3 times in 7 years, with dogs that were charging or being aggressive but in a somewhat wary way - they were basically working...

    1) AVOID. It's unfair and a pain, but I just avoid some routes to avoid some local dogs.

    2) Tolerate the silly to an extent but minimize their harassment.

    Good luck! It's tough with the good old dogs. My gut agrees with yours about keeping him home if possible. I hope it stays possible. The peanut butter spoon thing is cute and a good sign. Jingles.

    Because the parents of the killer were both UKC registered American Pit Bull Terriers. The killer itself, Niko, appears not to have been registered. The lack of registration papers doesn't turn it...

    Never forget that girls 15-25 (roughly) are just batshit. No offense. I was too. Probably why the mom's so suspicious; she remembers. Immature brain (bio speaking) and being terrifyingly desired by...

    Bonds and bonding exist and are good, honest things. But to many, many people, "the bond" is shorthand for "I have no credibility and no evidence, but you must be stunned and amazed at my power and...

    I get why people like having their cat indoor/outdoor, since cats love being outdoors. I also get why people hate other people's cats in their yards. I wouldn't hurt a cat and I wouldn't complain to...

    Hiring an adult professional to proofread and copyedit a school kid's work is cheating. Doesn't matter what the school policy is, it's cheating by all normal standards of behavior. Doesn't matter if...

    I agree with you. My thinking is that if the exact nature of the prayer is vital, they wouldn't be asking someone to join in unless they KNEW the person would share their format.

    I didn't read the entire thread, so maybe someone brought this up before - anyone remember the little girl who was a "pilot" who died in 1996 during a very heavily hyped cross-country flight? This...

    It won't last forever, you will figure things out, but you will feel like a monster when you go to work. Bad news, the complete lack of relaxation is going to be your new normal for a long time. ...
