I have a feeling someone opted for the easier path, instead of the amount of work it would have taken to rebuild.
And Paul, all was not lost here. There are lots of others watching and can see what taking the easy road will do.

Just don't get the name calling.
Ya know I've noticed that people aren't really appreciative of my experience in the veterinary side of things that I've tried to help people with either. Dr Ed seems very knowledgable so it's sad that he doesn't post health threads anymore.
I also stopped until I got a Thank you from someone. Made me feel like I should keep trying to help.
Paul, Thank You for trying to help me I truly appreciate it!
i kind of like your rtf "schtick". i respect your training advice.
i do recall a few months back that you advised a "frequent poster", and i paraphrase, "if you are going to quit posting, be a man and just quit posting! there is no need for a man to announce his intensions to leave the rtf.......just leave!"
your statements in this thread to the people you have "tried to help" seem in conflict with your earlier feelings. i would have thought you would feel that if someone doesn't take your valuable advice you would just "man up" and let it be? i know you are primarily concerned about the well being of the dog and its relationship with the owner........but you sound like a crying little school girl about it.
then you note the "others who quit posting" on the board because of being treated like you when giving advice. is this statement a preliminary announcement of you potentially leaving rtf? i hope not for several reasons; 1. as i noted above, i value your training advice. 2. making an announcment of your departure would not be very "manly". 3. it's almost college football season....and oregon is gonna get smashed this year!
if i had your earlier posts confused with posts by someone else please accept my apology
This thread kind of creeps me out too.
Yup, pretty much the way it's going.It used to be about the dogs, now its about peoples feelings.
You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

Amazing how things degenerate to this. There are many ways to train a dog! No need to get your nickers in a knot over it. JMHO
