“He goes on all the car rides, we do the dog park, our daily walk and he loves to visit the school whenever he can. He also likes to visit the senior center about once a month.”

“We go to Mutt-Run Off-Leash Dog Park and go for lots of rides in the country, and in town as well. And he loves to chase any kind of ball.”

Hitme~ Sounds like the guy has a real thing for Rottweilers. Maybe they could get him to lose his fetish by sticking him in a yard with trained attack Rotties. If he associated them with pain & mayhem, he'd probably be disinclined to abuse one again. (And, depending on how long he was in the yard with them, maybe he'd no longer have the requisite equipment to do so.)What puts such a twist on someone's brain, anyway?!

These days, I have to pretend I have a dog.( It works out... he has to pretend he has a keeper. )Won't see me leashing him like all those other imaginary pet owners; oh, no.

Nothing smells worse than wet dog. Except possibly the Democratic Presidential ticket.

I spend a lot of time peeling the great Dane off the ceiling and trying to convince him that the rat terriers won't eat him. Poor boy.

we like long walks on the beach, cuddling in front of a roaring fire, french kissing in the back of a cab, sharing a cigarette after a long passionate session of hot steamy sex(OK, I'm lying ....neither one of us smoke)

Me and my doggs like hanging out on the street corner thumpin' tunes and watchin' girls in tight pants and tube tops...we drink Southern Comfort and gin and juice and smoke full flavors...Blunts and the Chronic. We ride together...and hang out on the coner waiting for the ho's to come ova...and we play tracks to listen to as we hang

We both signed up for a Leg Hiking 101 class over at KU. We pull fleas off each others bodies and trade them. He shows me how to lick my package and drink outta the toilet and I got him working the T.V. remote and heating up chicken patties in the toaster oven. He's a good boy!

We chase the tiny woodland creatures. Alas, we cannot climb trees so we never catch them.

Right on, Ms. Canada! You're always too damn nice. It's refreshing to see you a little pissed off once in a while. We're all human. I could probably use a little more of your niceness.

This is what we do..take a good size dip net. center it over the dog food bowl, placing a couple of bricks on either side to guide and steady it..one in back so it doesn't slip out. Place another flat rock over the handle end. Now put a big snap swivel on the end of your line..run it up over something high (I use a tree limb off the redbud)..hook the snap swivel in the bottom of the net..and raise it up..this might take two people to coordinate. Sitting on the deck, with this rig about twenty feet out, we wait...starlings land in tree, get ready (open the bale and hold the line with your finger) When the starlings land in the food bowl to eat dog food, release and viola!! Dauchsand charges out and dispatches starling..This is a fantastic sport the whole family can enjoy.

anybody ever try dog fishing? I take my medium action rod with a Mitchell 300 spinning reel..generally use about 14 lb. test line...and troll in my living room with any little cat toy..a chartruse mouse with a roostertail works well...I've landed big yorkies and dauchsands...but be light on the drag as they are real fighters..Talk about having fun with the dogs??Oh, and the dauchsand really loves starling netting in the backyard..great way to get rid of those pest.

Unnecessary licking and rolling in dead things. We also enjoy having cockle-burrs and ticks picked from our fur.snap, the lemurs must be trying to drown out the noise...

I've seen a look in dogs' eyes,a quickly vanishing look of amazed contempt, and I am convinced that basically dogs think humans are nuts."John Steinbeck (1902-1968)---I love our daily walks, they are a blessing, source of strength. I wonder, if more people in the world had a good dalk to walk with, if our world would be happier and more peaceful.

maybe the question isn't solving the world's problems, but for people with dogs it may give locals more ideas for places to take their canine companions...

This question is discriminating against folks that don't have canines. - T_O_BJust too meaty of a question for the toothless?

I am with Ms. C. How are we supposed to solve the problems of the world with bonehead questions like this one? Yawn.

ms_c,I don't remember there being a serious bone in any body. But we do have humerus bones.

Ms. Canada -Did you wake up on the wrong side of the bed this morning? I'm not used to such negativity out of you. Also, scienticians have proven the OTS is 96% fluff. This question is discriminating against folks that don't have canines. ACLU? Where are you in our time of need?

0

ms_canada 5 years, 7 months ago

I have come to the conclusion that this forum is nothing but a bunch of fluff 90% of the time. Nary a serious bone in the body.
