    ABKC Director of Judges Ron Ramos Gives Us His Insight About The Bully World.

    I love seeing a pot criticized by the kettle. In other news, those dogs need to die out and the people breeding them need to find a job that doesn't depend on the production of such an unsound product.

    Menstrual cups

    Reading all this makes me realize that my hysterectomy four weeks ago was the absolute best surgery I've ever had. Of course I really didn't have a choice, but I have so many people offering me sympathy and I just want to sing and dance in happiness. LOL

    The Official "What are you reading" Thread

    I just started reading the first book Friday night and finished the third a couple hours ago. My take on some of the horrible reviews of the final ending is that it wasn't want people wanted. I admit that I was a bit "...but WHY!?", but I do get it. I get the message and/or underlying...

    Vet Techs, former Vet Techs....

    I should add that the worst is seeing the crap that brings their animals in. My clinic is located in north Baton Rouge, so we saw a lot of thugs with their pathetic abused money-makers. I got so angry one time that I told some guys where to go (as in "go to hell") and I walked out. And...

    WWYD regarding back yard

    Personally, I prefer an open grassy yard. I love big oak trees, but the sweet gum tree would have to go. Heck, those seed pods.....OUCH! :yikes: So if it were my yard, I'd leave the one big tree and remove all the landscaping stuff and get some grass growing to have a nice open area. Less...

    Rehoming a dog with a bite history?

    I'd euthanize. Period.

    What's the rarest dog breed you've met?

    Gah! Every time I try to edit, it deletes what I wrote, so here's a follow-up post instead. I've owned a rescued Fila, who sadly had permanent mental issues from many early months of neglect and abuse. And my friend owns a Xolo. And some other breeds we had as clients are Cane Corsos...

    What's the rarest dog breed you've met?

    I've seen Boerboels, Basenjis, a Komondor, and a gorgeous Anatolian Shepherd, which was used to guard/protect sheep. Then there was a Bully Kutta, Gull Terr, and Ca de Bou imported by and owned by a good friend. Those dogs had me :eek: :hail: . I've actually seen quite a variety, but...

    Horse people! Pony aficionados!

    An Arabian is never considered a pony. Ever.

    Horse people! Pony aficionados!

    For the record: a mini stud can, and will, impregnate a full-size horse. Just wanted to throw that out there in case some were unaware if this simple biological fact and decided to further throw such animals together. A horse is a horse no matter its size. My 14 hh Arab is a horse despite...

    Do you think this is sound advice?

    This. IMO, that's some odd advice. And probably going to get someone bitten.

    "SDs" at Airport?

    I guess my son's dog won't be "real" because we arent't paying $20,000 for an already 2 or 3-year-old dog that comes with a nifty certificate if authenticity. To hell with the fact that we may not even get seizure alerts for that price. Then again, others believe my son's future service dog...

    As I'm only 5 ft. tall, I love love love my front loads! I do have them on pedestals since I got the pedestals on sale for $99 each (the larger ones, too). I bought all my stuff from Home Depot where the washer and dryer were on sale and then they price-matched Lowe's sale on the pedastals...

    2014 Official Chaz Fitness Challenge

    I have low thyroid (right under the low normal), but I also have a vitamin D3 deficiency (rare here, and I'm pretty much a poster child for skin cancer...that's how much I'm outside). If it helps, I also have PCOS and am IR. I've drastically changed the way I eat. Limiting carbs was much...

    Leaving children in car seats.....

    If I accidentally forgot my dog in my car and he died a torturous death of heat stroke, y'all would vilify me. I'm sure most would hope for jail time. But if I do the same for my child, maybe a "do better with the next one" and a sympathetic pat on the back? Add me to Romy with being confused...
