    Why is it..........?

    I see no problem with it when it is done correctly. I don't think I would crop a dogs' ears.....but I also don't see myself owning a dog that would need that done. But I'm not going to freak out on someone who has it done to their dog. I'll save my energy to have someone get their pet altered instead! :D

    More Designer Dog Breeds!!!

    Uh guys....she's doing it cuz she's PO'd at the designer dog craze. Here is what she says: [b] Day in and day out lately ‘doodle’ is the word on everyone’s lips. They’re the “must-have” thing these days, designer breeds with fancy names, hypoallergenic claims, and promises of “it’ll be a breed soon!” It makes me sick. So I aimed my anger in a direction that’s sarcastic, but hopefully thought-provoking. All of the “breeds” named are actual, in-use ‘designer’ names. It angers me that people are willing to pay for overpriced mutts, and it makes me madder to know they’re being bred by the thousands just to make a quick buck. Cocker x poodle, Pomeranian x peke--we’ve had these mixes in our shelters since day one. And these same expensive “hybrids” are being euthanized en masse for lack of loving homes. Don’t get me wrong, I love mutts. My childhood dog was a mutt, although she’d be a “foxadoodle” today. But it’s time we called a spade a spade (and spayed all these poorly bred mixes, too!) None of these dogs exist, of course. Their personal stories aren’t really true. But we hear stories and excuses JUST like these on a daily basis in shelters nationwide. Purebreds and mutts alike, turned over for reasons identical to these. Oh, it’s of worth to note: every single dog photo here is of a shelter animal, current or adopted. And they’re all either the exact mix the name belongs to, or a fullblooded purebred that goes into that go into creating that mix. Interesting, no? [/b]

    don't make me kill somebody! *UPDATED*

    I'd totally be calling AC next time. And, along with the others, you totally made me laugh out loud!

    Pit Bull Wedding?

    And they also raised money for the local animal shelter. I think it's nice!

    Does your dog not like some people?

    Tater loves everyone. He'd go home with anyone who looked at him. Dog lover or not. Hunter and Dakota take time to warm up to people but aren't overly thrilled until meeting them for 6 or 7 times. PoGo growls at everyone he meets at first, but then falls in love with anyone who will hold him.

    Luke the battering ram

    PoGo always is behind me, jumping up and launching off of my butt. It's not cute anymore!

    Dog Attack/Face Transplant

    I heard something about that on the news but didn't know that she had it because of a dog attack. Maybe we should ban Labs now? Sorry......just slipped out......

    My friends getting a foster!

    She's beautiful! I love her white feet!
  10. Remember this post? [url]http://forum.dogomania.com/viewtopic.php?t=23837[/url] Well.....this will be happening tonight (supposedly). And there will be up to 26 inches of snow fall by morning! HA HA HA HA HA loser......Guess she should have fuckin thought about that before she did that to those babies, huh? She's bitching about how it's cruel to her and how it's dangerous to her. Bitch.....she's had time to prepare for this.....those little babies had no clue they were being dupmed in the cold.

    Women sentenced to starve!

    This judge has been doing sentences like this for a long time. My mom called me and told me about this She went to see the babies after they were taken in and said they are all beautiful!! But this judge is awesome and I've always thought he's been fair.

    Fence Question

    That first one that you have looks like what we would like.....but we'd need it to go up cover the first two openings (the ground level and the next one up). PoGo will jump over the first slat and get out that way along with scooting underneath. The trellis might not be bad, especially if we painted it white to match the fence. Thanks....I'll show Jeremy the trellis. I never thought of those before!

    Fence Question

    Okay....here's my situation: We have a white vinyl 4 rail split fence. Like this: [url]http://www.metropolitanfence.com/images/post_rail/4rail_big.jpg[/url] We did this because our development is built on an old farm house property (very large acreage) and the actual farm house is behind us. Well they have a wood four rail split going around their entire property so we wanted to match them and also not just put up a fence that blocked everyone out, like we were staking out our property. So it works great with the GSDs but the little ones can get through it. We didn't have them when we moved in and put the fence up so it was not thought of at that time. They don't always go through it, but PoGo will on occasion. Tater never will unless I'm standing on the other side. My question is that we need to find something to keep them in! Don't really want to put up anything that's going to look crappy or half-assed. Any suggestions will be helpful! We'd like to get something up in the spring so they can be outside with us and I don't have to worry about keeping PoGo in my sights at all times! He's quick!

    Neighbor's dog

    I don't understand either...... And I'm the same way you are with my dogs. If they bark outside, they get one chance to be quiet. If not, they come in.
