I’m still speaking of him in the present tense.

That’s probably not “normal”.

Thank you everyone for your suggestions. Now I have several real avenues to find out either what happened to my pups or find them.

Also, lost dogs threads on FR, sigh. No wonder donations are down.

“No wonder donations are down.”

Donations are down because everybody is flat busted by the wrecked economy.

If people are faced with ‘buy food’ or ‘donate to FR’, which do you think most will choose?

Occam’s chainsaw cuts through ludicrous hyperbole.

This is no better and no worse than the many prayer/recipe/your favorite song/help with my PC vanities posted every day of every year.

You are either a troll or desperate for attention.

FR has enough trouble raising funds without you clogging up the place with worthless posts.

And you're a dipwit! You got a problem with the thread then hit your abuse button and let the mods sort it out.

I suspect you already have and the mods have spoken......

Now get lost and vent your inner frustrations on some other thread..........

FWIW, it's idiots like you who have driven away many of the old time contributors.......

When one is dealing with grief, all things are normal, I got ticked off at my husband a few times after he passed. We were putting up hay in the barn with friends and he said he just wanted a break, sat down next to his truck, we finished loading the hay off the wagon into the barn, went to see him if he was feeling better, and being a nurse I could tell by his color he was dead, also being a nurse I did CPR on him until the ambulance came, I was yelling at him all the while doing CPR....for me that was normal, maybe not for someone else....Bless you and yours...

PS its been over 20 years and sometimes I still get mad at him......he was only 51. first and only heart attack....so its enjoy each day, you may not have a tomorrow.

Do keep “vanity” posts to a minimum - Free Republic is primarily a place to discuss news, articles, and editorials.

Hey sweetheart, look up in the right hand corner of this thread. Up there you will see a category titled "General/Chat"

What do you suppose that means?

What I'm thinking of happened in Michigan, not Texas, but there's a bell ringing here...rintense, didn't you post something on fb a month or so ago about an extremely shady breeder in the Grand Rapids area? I recall that she had been involved with multiple breeds and that folks were being warned about her for some reason or other...the rest is a blank. What was that about?

This thread is more timely and interesting than half the crap that gets posted on this forum lately. Do you police all the threads or just singled this one out? It doesn’t seem as if the mods have a problem with it. There’s a “General Interest/Chat” subforum for a reason, you know. Dogs are about as general an interest as one is likely to find.

Here is an article about dog theft from last Sept:

Local woman arrested in pet scam

Posted: Saturday, September 15, 2012 2:00 am

*snip*

That name, however, turned out to be fake. Smith alleges it was an alias used by 24-year-old Jennifer Ann Herbers of Wharton.

“If you go online and do Internet research on either name, you get multiple complaints of these same issues,” Smith alleged.

On Sept. 6, police executed a search warrant at Herbers’s rural Wharton home. “She had a stack of paperwork along with sales receipts from hundreds of people she had sold animals to,” Smith said.

He began calling some of the buyers and allegedly discovered other similar rip-offs.

“I’m just scratching the surface,” Smith said.

Herbers was booked into Wharton County Jail on Sept. 6, charged with state jail felony theft. She was further charged with 10 counts of animal cruelty.

“We also discovered multiple animals that were being kept in really bad environments,” Smith alleged. “They were obviously being mistreated.”

Herbers was later released after posting $30,000 bond.

Hard to tell if she was prosecuted or not or where she went after posting bond.

I'm sorry to hear about your loss. God bless.

Since we are talking about dogs and breeding and "what not", has anyone had a Chinese Crested or knows someone who has?

I think they are AKC approval.

I'm curious about their origin and temperaments.

free kitty, good luck in your search.

It does happen.

The American English Coonhound evolved from Virginia Hounds, descendants of English Foxhounds.

Originally these hounds were used to hunt fox by day and raccoons by night and were named the English Fox and Coonhound.

Today's American English Coonhound is a wide-ranging hunter that possesses tremendous speed and endurance, and excellent voice.

A strong and graceful athlete, he needs regular exercise to stay in peak shape.

The breed's hard, protective coat is of medium length and can be red and white ticked, blue and white ticked, tri-colored with ticking, red and white, and white and black.

The breed is pleasant, alert, confident and sociable with both humans and dogs.

--------------

The AKC recently allowed this breed to show and a lovely one was in Westminster this year.

As long as a breed type is set and maintains that type for a certain amount of time, it may go on to be recognized as a distinct breed.

In fact, that's how all breeds came to be.

The Chinook is a Mastiff/Husly mix that is now an official breed.

I know Crested owners.

They’re very nice charming dogs but you have to accept that the gene that causes hairlessness also affects dentition.

They will lose their teeth.

The “Powderpuff” version who have more hair have better luck keeping their teeth.

They have been an AKC breed for quite a while.

They were pets of Chinese royalty.

I believe Chinese Cresteds got their start in China.

But seriously, had a customer years ago who had one, and it was damn ugly but she loved that dog. I recall she had framed photos of her former GSD dog adorning her apt which she couldn't replace due to her health. She had Systemic Lupus and was thus hypersensitive to many irritants including pet dander and the CC was the only choice for her. It was docile, if a little fearful of strangers, tho not yappy in my presence. But it was clearly very loyal to her and low maintenance she always said.

Ya know, I just realized the AKC allowed a single European breed to be broken up into 3 (leaving out one coat type) separate breeds. I owned one of those dogs, as a matter of fact.

In Europe, the Belgian Shepherd has 4 varieties: Groenendal, Tervuren, Malinois and Laekenois. But AKC split that breed arbitrarily, IMHO. UKC considers all varieties Belgian Shepherds, however. So, there is precedent for separating a breed into multiple breeds according to color. Go figure.

See what you did there, baby cakes.

I read your post and couldn't stop laughing - laughing so hard I started coughing! I'm sorry Donna, but I'm on "Team freekitty".

"...others must provide your pleasures..."

A good Flame War can be like a tonic - a pleasurable one. I haven't seen one in a while, so thank you there, toots!

Instigating a Flame War on a thread where someone is trying to track down her pups.

Why have you even gotten on this thread in the first place? And why have you stuck around this long. Sometimes people start Flame Wars just because they can. They aren't even interested in the topic. They just want to play Flame Wars because it feels so good!

I'm flame retardant right now - so if you want to flame me, Flame Away.

It will give me something silly to talk about at work tomorrow and I'm known for my silliness.

Thanks for the material, sugar lips!

That's for sure.

He has gone after bear and pigs with a bow and usually hunts that way.

Shotgun for ducks though.

He is ok now, one foot was pretty crushed but with metal and screws he walks just fine, if you don't count the pain.

He's a dirtbiker too, so road rash is just a minor distraction to him.

He fought the ins company long and hard but managed to get it fixed. 10-14 G's worth IIRC.

Had special custom ins so they had to come up with the dough.

Kinda hard to sling a buck over a fender on a dresser, but easier than on a custom bike.

Doesn't look that bad, but note the dent in the tank. Fishtailed pretty hard until he finally met the ground.

The kid's pretty tuff...

The Cocker is split into varieties as opposed to breeds. They can still be interbred, as can the 2 varieties of Collie (Rough & Smooth), the varieties of Dachshund and the varieties of Beagle (13 & 15 inch). I have to check on the BTs, but I think they are separate breeds.

The Norfolk & Norwich terriers used to be all lumped into the Norwich breed, but were separated by ear carriage not that long ago.

Pappy rode for quite a ways with an angry buck literally across his lap.

It jumped off the bank and landed on him.

He maintained control and carefully laid down the bike and all he did was gripe later that the buck ruined his good winter long rider coat.

That would be cool to get her to post here at FR!

I first saw her on her TV show “Life with Elizabeth”
where she and the costar would sit at a piano and sing “You are my Sunshine.”

Towards the end the announcer would ask her "Elizabeth, aren't you ashamed?" and she would shake her head....no...LOL

"If we will not carry each other’s burdens, we are nothing."

Bears repeating.

Dogs are so precious and they also help us carry our burdens.

I had a really bad case of pneumonia a few years ago...really bad case.

At the time, I had a Schnauzer Mix.

Morgan (I didn't name him but he LOOKED like a Morgan) and I were on the bed when I started coughing horribly and couldn't seem to be able to shake it off.

Morgan came over to me and just leaned on me. Morgan was just the medicine I needed. I miss him still and its probably been 10 years or so that I had to let him go.

I have a full Schnauzer now named Dougie. Sometimes I can see Morgan's temperament in Dougie. Must be the Schnauzer way.
