    Yeah I've had 60lb dogs do it too for three or four days straight until the point where they just didn't want to get back in the water. My brother-in-law had to retire his 6 year old 60lb dog...

    The wars are a completely different debate. I agree, 9/11 was put into motion before the 2000 election and would have occurred no matter who won. The response to it I'm sure would have been...
