Yep. I do the same - don't share all the vids I have because I'm afraid of people being dumb about it, but kind of wish people could see some of the crazy in my "starter malinois". Of course then the wrong people see them and think "bad ass dog" again, too. Lose-Lose.

I went to a show and go this weekend and people got all weirded out and nervous when Aeri started tooth chattering and grabbing my shirt. They were amazed at my patience when she ripped my shirt, but to me it was really nbd, though I was wishing she'd stop because of the comments it was getting. They understood the alligator print leash and thought it was funny, though.

I'm around mal people and other similar high arousal breed people so much that I forget that the average dog, even in many sports, doesn't have to work through stuff like that so it caught me off guard I guess. At least I got to practice with an equivalent to ring nerves?

This belongs in the good news thread but as for the Xtreme air dog event a friend contacted them and they'll have a registrar up today and won't turn away on site registration due to late notice.

Yay.

Slight vent, Denis is in AZ that weekend and I am going alone, I guess I am taking 4 dogs... Shudder...

Owie.

Oh and that vent was not just for this breed, I have a TON of clients here with hunting line labs and goldens "because they're healthier" who are drowning in energy and drive, lost with no "good family pet" in sight.

People need to stop lying to themselves and assuming they'll be the exception.
Rumor has tagged my sisters/their boyfriends more than once. They get her super riled up, and it ends in teeth making contact with something, usually a leg, out of sheer frustration. Hard. The response, of course, is always confusion. "She doesn't do that to you!"

Can you afford a working beater car before you have to be out?

Lucky for me, when I was homeless I still owned a car. As long as you own a car you can be warm, dry, and secure. And you can have your dogs with you. Check into shelters, friend's houses to find a regular place to shower and things so you're presentable for work.

Just remember that it's temporary. The situation you're in is temporary. Do whatever you can to keep your job. Your dogs won't mind living in a car with you. The weather's still cool enough that they'll be okay, or maybe you can find a friend who won't mind watching them in the day if you're worried.

It'll give you more time to find a good place to rent.

You could get your boss to write a letter to prospective landlords, or when you get paid go to the library and make photocopies of the checks to show them. The combination of the two should be enough for most landlords.

Good luck. ((hugs))
Thanks. Nope, no car. Got about $60 in my pocket right now, and Ill need to buy kibble in a few days with that. Get paid Sundays, and Ill get about 190-200 then. Not enough for a car, not by a long shot. Need to be out on sunday and if i cant find SOMEPLACE to stash my dogs while I work, im gonna have to quit this job i JUST got, too. meh. iv been looking everywhere, talking to dog people, etc. i can pay for a room i just need somebody to let me pay a little at a time >< and its gotta be on the bus line. ugh

No shelters allow pets? I know they tend to cater to homeless teens and mothers with kids (who wouldn't have left a husband without the pets) but they do exist.

Try Craiglist? Try a cheap motel?

definitely no pet dogs in shelters, and even if they did, i cant leave my dogs at a shelter during the day while i go work. they are usually YMCAs or community centers that they throw mats down at night, and then at 5 am everyone get shoo'd out the door so that whatever the building WAS can resume. (can you tell iv been homeless before). motel would take ALL my money and again, cant leave my dogs there all day. dont trust motel staff
