I used to use a Furminator on my Labs with no issues but the undercoat rake is my go-to since I got a LC GSD.
I don't own one and the furminator was a gift. I do like the curry combs I have but it doesn't feel as effective.

Sorry. This sucks so bad.

I wanted to run off to Vegas and get married. My hubby's parents would have thrown a fit, so we had a quick to-do at my mom's house. Our neighbor is a judge so he married us. I wanted to do it outdoors in the morning. (we were leaving for New Orleans that day) VERY informal.

Even with SO few details I was incredibly surprised how rude and pushy everyone was. "Why don't we do it inside, it's cold" "Where is the food? You didn't have food?" Not to mention how pissed they probably were that it wasn't at a church with a preacher.

My advice is to tell them all to kiss your ass and do what you want! This is YOUR day, the only people who matter on your wedding day are you and your husband.

So many bills, not enough income. Working 3 days a week is awesome for the free time but not so much for the money. I can't do it and I'm trying to find stuff to try and sell but I'm the type that uses something until it dies. Sigh.

Josh and I pretty much eloped. We "planned" our wedding in a month. Set the place, got everything ordered and set... then told everyone who was invited. His parent's were PISSED. Said they weren't coming, pretty much disowned me for a while.. yeah. Went well. Then we moved away. Good times. Do what YOU want, Ashley. After it is all done, everyone will let it go, and you will be happy. That's what matters. Don't let anyone tell you that your camo cowboy boots will look stupid.

My vent. I'm going to implode. MUST DO ALL THINGS WITH NO TIME! AHH!

Went from stressed out and anxious to feeling like I'm going to cry. God, I love my life right now. Not.

Don't want to go to work. Have to, because I have NO shifts.. But don't want to. Ugh, need new job.

I got hired for a different internal department at the end of last year. My old department needed help, so I did half days for both teams for a month, and then went back to my old department full time on an indefinite loan. Not just me, but others too. It's been almost 6 months and other people in old department are getting to transfer out while us helpers have to stay to help. I am frustrated that I have yet to really get to.work in my new department. I feel like I have no team and yet have to report to two supervisors, keep track of stuff for two teams. Now I'm getting all these errors and I just feel like...I can't do anything. I'm very unhappy, and stressed. I love the company but I would like the opportunity to do the job I applied to and got hired for. Im feeling very unsure of everything I'm doing with my job anymore

Any advice?

When people see pics of 2 dogs and ask where the others are, are they unhappy, why don't I take pics/do all the things with them??? I despise when people imply that nonsense and it instantly angers me. Taking Kastle swimming and dock jumping and then forcing Eden to do the same is not good dog ownership. She doesn't enjoy it and doing it to say that they are treated the same is stupid. I hate when people have attitudes like that. OR asking me why I don't do this or that with Jason's dogs after I've explained they are HIS dogs. Why don't I let Pan play with any of my dogs? Because he's a giant ass to other males and that's what I've got (Eden still plays with Pan).

Some guy came to the door while I was home for lunch claiming he was from ADT. I asked him if he was selling something and he said no, just offering people upgrades to their security systems. I told him I'm not the homeowner so I can't buy any upgrades and BY THE WAY we have a no soliciting sign so he needs to go. He said "oh I didn't even see that, well, will the homeowners be home soon?"

"You need to GO," I repeated, and slammed the door in his face as he continued trying to protest.

So I called ADT to complain.
They told me they don't send people door-to-door.

So I called the cops. He wasn't wearing anything that said ADT (in fact I thought he was from FedEx because he was wearing all brown, that's the only reason I opened the door), he didn't have an ADT truck or anything, so. NOPE.


Came back to work to an e-mail letting me know I'm basically going to be on the phone for the rest of the afternoon. Sigh.

I get that a lot. A lot of people are/weren't too keen on the poodles, and I was always asked why I skipped doing stuff with Stryder and did agility with Tsuki. And when I got Charlie I had people ask what was wrong with the other 3 dogs because you know... I totally got her to be my new agility dog.
