    I'm probably out of the ordinary -- but I vacation a lot. Living in Europe AND having 8 weeks paid holiday a year makes it much easier and a fair bit of my work I can do remotely. The majority of my...

    India is so broad! What time of year are you going and which regions? I worked in New Delhi for 6 months for an internship and then spent 2 months backpacking around with a friend. I've done the west...

    Thank you everyone for the comments! It all aligns closely with what I was expecting/anticipating.

    The shelter showed me a picture of her sister, who was adopted 2 weeks ago (she came in on an...
  4. Talk to me about socializing a rescue-dog

    So after quite a few dogs that got adopted out from underneath us (Vizsla, cute white mutt, and then a few others along the way) we went up to a shelter today that just had a load of young dogs...

    Also had one! They aren't the "norm" per-se in Europe but they are definitely more common here.

    The norm in Europe is definitely line-drying so even when we had our combo we only used the dryer...

    I grew up with a large family and a house spread over 3 floors. My mom ALWAYS hated the yelling. When dinner was ready she'd find the nearest kid and ask them to go alert the others to come get...

    What brand do you use? I've been looking at the Outward Hound quick-release backpack -- I love the idea of waterbottle weights for days we have less time! (plus if she's running with me, she can...

    S1969 I think you hit the nail on the head about temperment versus exercise -- it's definitely something I'll be focused on when we meet her in person. I enjoy dogs that love to work and exercise as...
  10. Vizsla vs. Flat-Coat Retriever Energy Needs?

    Hi All,

    Some of you may have seen my other post regarding the white mutt from Romania. We're still in talks with the agency regarding her but I've also been in touch with a local woman who has a 1...

    My first reaction was also a short-haired border collie cross of some sort -- but I agree that in all likelihood she's a straight up "lil bit of everything" street dog. Which is totally fine by me! ...

    Depends on how much of an effort moving is, how fairly the place is priced, how hot the market is in your area.

    Where I am most house-sellers find renters for their properties because the market...
  13. Guesses on what type of cross this is?? (Dog)

    Hi all,

    My boyfriend and I are looking to rescue a young dog. We've inquired about a few -- including this one! She's 9 months old and medium size (probably about 35-40 lbs).

    She was picked up...

    OP, I don't know you or your guy, and based on 2 short posts I can't determine whether he is a nice guy or not (i.e. whether your "validated" in ending it or not). However YOU have said you are no...

    I have the same issue! My friends are very international and we always get mixed up in what we're doing. Luckily with friends it's become a pretty standard joke, whenever we greet or leave we're...

    I have worn a couple pairs of TOMS -- they're lightweight to travel with and are supportive enough to walk around in each day. I'm hard on my shoes, but I usually don't get more than a few months...

    I got Minera inserted about 6 months ago. I'm late 20's, no children. My doctor gave me the choice of going to the hospital and having it done or her doing it in office (price difference = huge). I...

    I traveled quite a bit as a teen (did my first solo trip to France to work as a "mother's helper" when I was 14). My parents went the same route as GoForAGallop. My parents added me as a user to one...

    I almost never use "woman" except in a formal sense or when it's an established part of a common phrase (e.g. "grown woman"). When referring to myself I almost exclusively use girl, unless I'm trying...

    Have you tried a german martingale instead of a running martingale? I prefer it as it doesn't break the line between hand and bit.

    This will take lots of time and other more knowledgeable will...

    I was a trail guide at a stable in the Rocky Mountains for one summer. One woman who worked as a guide there was certain she knew *everything* about horses and riding.

    Stable owner asked me to...

    I picked up a pair of (lightly) used Dubarrys last fall. I wear them constantly and totally love them. However I have noticed that they're getting pretty beat up. I hose them down and then clean &...

    Your Abler should arrive within 21 days. I'm in Europe and ordered it for my mare (as gastrogard is even MORE expensive here than back in the US and requires a vet visit to prescribe -- ouch). It...
