    I was thinking about it as I read, and initially I was thinking it may work well enough for breeds which are generally "easy" - in terms of, say, a Beagle v. a Malinois. I don't think a high-volume...

    FWIW, I suspect that anyone who responds to a job cancellation with rape threats is not someone who would have responded more normally if the husband had lied. It's pretty likely the guy knows he...

    What a pretty dress. I'd wear a short necklace - what googling calls princess length, ie, longer than a choker but shorter than almost anything else. The bodice is the star of that dress, and the...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
