    Taking Basic Gun Class

    I want to take a basic gun class this year. I'm a total beginner. I've fired a handgun of some kind at me uncles house a couple of times-it was loud, smoky, and I have no idea if I even hit the target. I'm honestly a bit intimidated by guns but would like to become more comfortable around...

    Facebook Blocking?

    I'm having some problems with my aunt on Facebook over a recent political issue in our state (the now infamous Indiana bill). I've shared articles, political cartoons, etc. My aunt disagrees strongly with me and has private messaged me trying to suck me into a one on one debate. Neither of us...

    Paranormal or Unexplained Experiences?

    Do you believe in the paranormal? Have you ever had any experiences you would classify as paranormal or otherwise unexplained? I've only really had one. I used to work at a boarding barn years ago. It happened on a fall morning when I was working by myself. The turnout paddocks were arranged...

    White Boxers, White GSDs and Culling...

    In an discussion on another forum I'm active on (not a dog board) a couple of members stated that the American boxer and GSD clubs frowned upon breeders giving away or selling white pups, leading the breeders to euth said pups. Is this true?

    Would This Bother You?

    Ugh-Just Disgusted

    This past year a female cat showed up at my stepbrother and SIL's place. My 9 year old niece started feeding it and it's pretty friendly-my stepdad even build an outdoor cat shelter (stepbrother says no cats in the house). Then a random female kitten showed up and has joined the other cat. My...

    Vet Techs, former Vet Techs....

    I am very seriously considering going back to school to be a vet tech. I'm looking for a little feedback from those that are actually in the field. What does your job entail? What do you do on a day to day basis? What are your favorite parts of the job? Least favorite? If you had to do...
