Saturday Night Doggie Thread
YouTube | September 18, 2010 | Me

Posted on 09/18/2010 10:18:52 PM PDT by Bradís Gramma

OK Kiddies....before you click the link that I'm going to provide I want to warn you about something. If you've done animal rescues, I'm sure you've seen this, and worse....but you may still not want to watch.

There are NO gory, bloody things in here...but it was a VERY hard video to watch. It has a happy ending, but the gist of it wasn't easy to look at.

I'm putting this up mostly for lurkers, people who just MIGHT be thinking of buying a cute little kitty or puppy from a pet store. These operations need to NOT be funded. They NEED to be shut down, and the only way we can do that is to not buy from pet stores.

I found this on Facebook, posted by a group calling themselves "Real Men are Kind to Animals".

And, while I have your attention...as we all sit her tonight discussing animals in helpless situations...we ALL need to continue to keep our priorities straight and think of ways we can come up with to stop abortion and the abuse of children.

Thanks. Have fun, no fighting, and enjoy the happy ending, OK?

The lady looked at me and started laughing with me when I said...How? :)

What kind of pup are you getting and of course, you've read all of Salamander's posts about dog training and gone to her home page and checked her links?

Disclaimer: I received nor will I receive any monetary value for pushing her dog raising abilities on you. But if you don't follow them you'll be soooooooooorrrrrry. ;)

This critter is going to be a good dog yet.

We’re getting a liver Rhodesian Ridgeback. We visited the breeder two weeks ago to see the litter. 16 puppies! They were adorable.

Which end are you talking about? The end of the series, the end of the DVD's, the end of Serenity? Which end?

I think that is why I liked it so much. I saw them on HULU when you could select all or any of the episodes and I started near the end. I was captured by how good the story line, characters, and the whole concept was engrossing. The DVD's did not have that effect.

Then HULU stopped letting anyone view any of the episodes in any order you wanted and had 5 episodes available at a time. I then wished I would have recorded them when I had the chance as I know it would not be in the order the DVD series is in.

Also I would have recorded ALL of the episodes. The DVD series is missing several important to following the story accurately (at least for me.)

So let me know which end you mean.

I’ve never had one...Betcha they’re adorable.

OK. O/T. I’m sitting here, in a quiet room, and he who is named Brad appears in the hall behind me, and growls at the dogs. They ignored him.

He who is named Brad will now get bonked up the side o’the head as I almost became airborne...

How To Behave So Your Dog Behaves.

Not only is it a great book, the illustrations are hysterical....:)

The “bluffing threat face” versus “the serious threat face” sketches still crack me up.

Nope.

There’s some ‘critters’ you just can’t train.

Shock collar set to “stun”.

[or a cattle prod...whatever’s easier and cheaper to get]

That would be a stun gun but hey...whatever works.

You can get 24” prods.
