To everyone else, take the high road. You saw a need to help and tried and that in and of itself is commendable. Save your energies for the next person that will actually need your help and move on.
Truth, and my apologies.

Part of me is laughing over the whole situation, but the bigger half is frustrated by the help that goes ignored.

Best to use it on folks with an open ear. :)

I just rather be told how to fix it and given basic easy instructions but we will handle this our way. He isn't under socialized. He has been exposed to just as much. by the way I do exagerate his behavior a bit. He isn't nearly as bad as it comes off I just get so frustrated at times and blow things out of proportion.....we all do. The dog is a good dog but I guess I get a little overexcited and well make things out to be more than they are. I do overexaggerate a lot,. Thats just an issue I have. His only problem is he barks at dogs bigger than him.
Exaggerating his behavior isn't going to help us be able to give you sound advice. There are many experienced and very knowledgeable members here who have freely given their time to offer you great advice. But it works better if they know the specifics of the problems without exaggeration.

And there was no other dog....I made up the situation because I didn't want to admit that I was concerned about my dog.....not reacting to being corrected. There was no other dog but I didn't want you to know it was my dog. it was my dog that didn't react to being corrected.....okay I just didn't want anyone to know that I was concerned about my well trained dog.
Many people have tried to give you advice. Repeatedly. To be lied to when we're asked for help makes us feel betrayed. It also makes us less likely to offer help in the future.

But Sasha is my pride and joy and I have worked hard with her and I just didn't want anyone to know she was less than perfect.
We've all had problems with our own dogs. We've all posted here seeking advice on those problems. Nobody is perfect. None of us are perfect and none of our dogs are perfect. (Except Miss Morgan ;)). No one expects you or your dog to be perfect.

And to then go on the offensive towards members who didn't appreciate being lied to?? That's where I get mad. :madgo:

I'm gone too. Ban Me, Delete me, I don't really care

If you can't vent and discuss things on a forum what good is it anyways even hypotheticals
Ohhh, I just can't help myself...

You can vent here.

Surely you may also discuss things.

Hell, we debate from time to time and beat each other up a bit while we're at it.

BUT... what we do not do is lie. It says a lot about the person doing it. It's really just not a favorable characteristic in a fellow human being, especially a self-proclaimed dog lover on a dog forum.

And, because I think you're a little confused, here is a definition for "hypotheticals":

hy⋅po⋅thet⋅i⋅cal
  /ˌhaɪpəˈθɛtɪkəl/ Show Spelled Pronunciation [hahy-puh-thet-i-kuhl] Show IPA
–adjective
1. assumed by hypothesis; supposed: a hypothetical case.
2. of, pertaining to, involving, or characterized by hypothesis: hypothetical reasoning.
3. given to making hypotheses.
4. Logic.
a. (of a proposition) highly conjectural; not well supported by available evidence.
b. (of a proposition or syllogism) conditional.
–noun
5. a hypothetical situation, instance, etc.: The Secretary of Defense refused to discuss hypotheticals with the reporters.

I don't stretch the truth or lie about anything that i have posted on here. I am sorry i came on earlier and made an attempt for civility. I thought you were genuine in your desire to help your dog. What a freaking waste of time all of this has been for everyone. It is insulting and disrespectful.

I just caught up with lots of pages. You're married? It never occured to me. Seriously, I thought you were a child. That's why I ended one of my posts with, "Kids! Harumph" I was positive you were a child. ("Reading is soooo boring. I never read. I just like to watch tv and play. It takes forever.") Good heavens. Something is wrong here. I don't quite get it. But I hope you get the help you need. Just don't try getting it here. We're not equipped to deal with that.

I'm going to close this. We've all wasted enough time on someone who isn't going to be coming back to play for a while anyway.
