    The yellow ribbon is a real thing, but it doesn't seem to catch on.It sounds great at first as a Dogs In Need Of Space (DINOS) visual aid. But the more I see it, the less I like it. It's like the...

    I don't think cameras would have worked either. The owners seem to have settled on you as the easiest villain and they'd have intellectualized their way out of video evidence - you were probably a...

    Rats, I forgot that people tend to equate jealousy with envy. Jealousy is pretty much "Damn, I wish I had X" while envy is "I wish I had X, I hate that **** because she has X, and I wish I was that...
  5. Jealousy spin-off - the nature of horses, riding, etc....

    Does the very expensive nature of this hobby/sport just lend itself to creating jealousy? When I was a kid I was madly jealous of kids who could ride and have horses; they apparently were all madly...

    According to the linked story:

    Now, deputies are wondering why the dog with prior aggression issues was allowed to be taken."Right now we're just trying to find out the background of this animal...

    It's very soon, though I know it doesn't feel like it when you have an upset dog and a disappointed child. I'd keep on having the "scary" family member be calm and kind and a source of treats, but I...

    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...
  9. 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...

    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.
