    but if properly adjusted a conventional cavesson doesn't apply any pressure to the horse's nose. It should be loose enough to stick two fingers under it.

    Yup. Today is a fast day which probably explains why I'm so cranky. The IRS is not to be messed with so all earnings for the last two months went straight to them. Mostly ACA crap. People who live on...

    I actually applied for food stamps after being hit with the ACA premiums. I didn't qualify. I don't know how people manage to scam the "welfare system"; if anyone knows, please email me. We've coped...

    Gee, if I were a terrorist I'd get a very white grandma to carry my bombs. Why do you think terrorists are idiots?

    We actively kill roaming cats. If the dogs don't get them- we encourage it- we get the neighbor (gun nut) to shoot them. They are the most incredibly destructive animals- a single cat can wipe out a...

    the running at strangers? very rude, an act of aggression, totally not acceptable. It's a sign of a poorly trained and socialized dog. Properly socialized dogs don't do that. They just stroll on by.

    there have been a few studies in dogs showing that these agents are remarkably effective in preventing arthritis.

    most vaccine reactions are to the adjuvant and carriers, and splitting up the shots just makes the horse react even more.

    What did people do before they invented toilet paper? I'd google it but I suspect I'd get some really disturbing results. Someone just tell us.
  10. yeah, people joke about it, but I'm self-employed...

    yeah, people joke about it, but I'm self-employed and don't have a trust fund to fall back on. The $300 a month I'm being ripped off by the ACA act is a major problem in my life. And having to pay a...

    my most stable-temperament dog was extremely well socialized- the foster parents took the entire litter of 13 puppies to malls, schools, and stores from age 4 weeks on as a way to promote their...
  12. yeah, don't go to dog parks, but go everywhere...

    yeah, don't go to dog parks, but go everywhere else. There is a profound difference in the adult dog's beahvior when properly socialized. Socialization cannot be accomplished by keeping the puppy...
  13. that's pretty much my situation. Except I'm...

    that's pretty much my situation. Except I'm pissed I have to actually pay premiums due to ACA vs. prior, I got to keep the premium money while having no real health care.
    Luckily I'm pretty healthy...

    Oh, don't wait. There is a huge difference in the way a dog acts and reacts to the world when heavily socialized before age 16 weeks vs. dogs kept in isolation. Think of it this way: the dog has a...

    Why does anyone even care about this issue? It doesn't hurt other people. Why is it a problem? To quote my elderly mother brainwashed with nasty christian religion as a young child that she has been...

    Even if your vet isn't willing to do compounding (pentosan) adequan is not compounded and is far more effective than injectable glucosamine.

    it sounds like a theft. Was there anything that stood out about him in particular that may explain why he and not the other dogs were taken? the only one intact, the only one of that color, or...

    me either. Most research on the topic suggests children develop gender identity before they even learn to talk. And it's pretty sad if a 6 year old has never been told about penises and vaginases-...

    she means "ignorance." There are certain people who think censorship and keeping children ignorant of the facts of life is somehow a good thing. I have news for you- doesn't matter how many lies you...

    most people recommend never feeding dry food to cats. Even poor-quality wet food is preferable to dry food.

    Most people would prefer a dog with a minor conformation flaw vs. one with a major health problem like epilepsy. I hope all responsible breeders agree that health is first and foremost when making...

    yeah, it's a ridiculous situation. Many poor people were forced to buy insurance premiums that have $5k to $10k deductibles in order to avoid being fined. So if they go to the ER, they'll still get...

    I don't see anything on Brittanies from a casual search, but in vizlas they seem to think it's an autosomal recessive trait. Meaning both parents have to carry it for it to manifest. Personally, I'd...

    I don't believe in long-term sexual relationships. I think sexual relationships always burn out after two, five, or seven years and should be allowed to die. So much misery is created by people...

    I've never noticed that Fitbit users seem to lose weight or get any fitter. It actually seems to convince some people that they take sufficient exercise when all they do is walk slowly here and there.
