    Thank you!

    Oh, wait... this is not a situation where the dog is running from the dyke, right? I might be OK if the line is up on a mound or a dyke. I'd sit my dog, stumble as best I could up the...

    Whoa! Full stop! In what way have I insulted anyone? I specifically stated that ADHD can be an asset. My whole point! More specifically, my daughter is a nurse, my sister one also, who have...

    I'm not sure that quite captures what I'm talking about. The competence to handle chaos in life-threatening situations doesn't belong to ADHD practitioners alone. But I've known several of these...

    Glad to hear it! Does Alabama have a referendum system for initiating statutes. Very much abused by people like this.

    Your saga reminds me of the Bloomberg Everytown USA initiatives. One was...

    Cosmo is on top and bottom of Rocket Dog's pedigree. I'm told she was the feistiest pup in the litter. She woulda probably gone to a FT home had she been EIC negative, but she's a carrier. I...

    It is a great question that I'd have to think more about. I can tell you for sure lately, that I've gotten way less attached to doing HT's on any artificial time table. I think for me it's probably...

    The hearing rooms were filled in Carson City.

    I think the HSUS has the $$$ and they have the lobbyists. I don't think they own or love dogs and neither does their hired help.

    Preach on. I hear you. These are things you don't know until you know. Human beings (unlike dogs) have an amazing capacity to see what they believe is the case. My previous career was in nursing....

    What is "sexy"? Depends. Are you male or female? What is beautiful? Depends upon whether you're into the visual, kinetic, or auditory enjoyment? There is no (in my view) real definition of...

    They should shoot fliers. Some of us don't really have access to a lot of them. Some of us don't hunt (shameful... but true.) Also entry fees for Junior are less than Master, but not that much...

    One of the worst things about being human is outliving our dogs.

    She got it. Timing might have been off 'cause my impulse was to slow down and wait her out... (which has been effective for other things.) Zero tolerance now.

    "Stress response" or "messing with me"?

    Thinking about the other day's training after reading the thread on Firebreathers.

    I have one. The saga well documented.

    Everything said in the thread worked with mine. Slow. Calm. ...

    Clearly this is an organized nationwide campaign in the same vein as Bloomberg's "Every Town USA". I would bet you the same source of $$ is being used in each state.

    In February the upper elevation ski areas around here had an incredible 700 inches of base. A reflection of an unbelievably wet winter. Since then, it has been almost...
