  1. Wizard's First Rule (Terry Goodkind): "People are stupid. They will believe any lie either because they want it to be true, or they fear it to be true." I love your last sentence Sue. That's it in a nutshell.
  2. lol! Here's one of Kellie I was saving
  3. What's the best way to search for trainers in the area? And what should one be looking for?
  4. Maybe a history lesson is in order? It depends how much you wnat to fight it. There's actually a wealth of information out there, even in psychology books, to prove the point. I like to argue (problem is sometimes I don't do all the research I should). At the very least, I'd throw in one post with everything I wanted to say, all the evidence to back me up, and leave it at that. Some people you can't convince, but there are others reading the post that just might sit there and think "huh, I didn't know that. Maybe they're not off their rocker and so-called standards are detrimental to the breeds."
  5. Wow.......that basically says "forget to important part of hearding genetics; AKC standards are the only important thing." Nature vs Nurture arguement. I can see why you're hesitant. But with the last comment...improving the breed. Who says looks are the important part? Should it not be based on ability? By wanting to breed only for looks, that is changing the breed. It changes the very function the breed is for. I'm cringing at this, and I know others can say it better than I can.
  6. I'd be interested too. Last time I did a search I found one over by Lansing, but I didn't save the info...
  7. Glad you got it worked out Kellie had a problem like that, and turning my back to her brought her in so I could kik the ball again. I would tell her to bring it closer and then just wait until she did. She loved it, it was a bit of a mind game for her to figure out what I wanted her to do. That was about six months ago and she's been doing it ever since. She also likes it when I tell her to leave it, take her back inside, hide her ball, wait about 30 min to an hour (or longer), and then go back outside and tell her "get your ball!" The response and find time are getting quicker all the time Even as the hiding places get increasingly difficult.
  8. Someone posted this on the BC Rescue Index, and I just had to bring it over here too. Thought y'all would get a kick out of it:
  9. lol. I wanted floppy ears, I started with floppy ears, and then one day I woke up and both of Kellie's were sticking striaght up in the air! They weren't even proportioned right with her body! Since that time I've been calling her Batdog. Thank goodness everything leveled out and she doesn't look so dorky anymore!
  10. I'm so sorry Kevin881...at the very least, you had the chance to know her. I think the world of you all for adopting an older girl. Even though your time was so short, I'm sure there are some really good memories.
  11. Okay...I'm really confused now...I just wasn't sure how they all fit together. I'm really new to this...for some reason, I thought the base fit into the PVC pipe and was either a really tight fit, or was held in with a screw, or even went through a PCV cap. I really need to look at one...
  12. What I was wondering is if the pole is heavier on the bottom than on the top. And how thick is the spike? All my AL stakes bend really easily...
  13. Are you just using it as a weight then Barb? I can see that...sorta. I'm really curious as to how it works...
  14. Can't say anything about bases, but I can tell you about the stakes I use on the windy and rocky plains while I'm backpacking. I learned real quick not to go for AL, they bend, snap, and just don't stay in the ground. Titanium is the way to go for backpackers, but you're interested in pole bases. I'm willing to bet those dogs'll snap and bend those bases at the drop of a hat...I would go with steel...
  15. That's a great pic of Cady, I'd have to get it framed if I were you Glad you both had so much fun!
  16. too cute, Kel did the same thing today. Every time we go out, she has to find the biggest stick and carry it for at least 10-15 yards
  17. lol! I love the sneaking around the corner... that's just priceless
  18. Those are awesome Kat! I really need to get a better camera...
  19. lol, sorry Maria, that didn't come out right I'm just really lucky Kellie isn't too destructive.
  20. Wow, I feel really lucky now Kel has never gone that crazy! I'm not as bad as I thought
  21. Awww! How long have you had that ball? Looks like its holding up nicely.
  22. OH? Ohio BTW, welcome to the boards from Kellie and me.
  23. Oh wow! They all look so happy, and they're working, and look at all those sheep! I'm sooo jealous. *Sigh* One of these days...
  24. Kellie did something like that for a while. I finally figured out that she was inticing me into a game played by her rules. The way I combatted that was to sharply away and ignore her until she spat the ball out. Then I would wait a few more seconds before finally turning back, picking up the ball (turning away again if she grabbed it), and throwing it. (or kick if its her soccer ball) Kellie has decided that chasing the ball is better than chewing it. Just something you might want to try. That's almost how I got her recall to improve as well. I think I'm gonna add some puppy squares and tracks into the mix (huge reward!) and see if she continues to improve. Sorry I can't help with the agility jump.
  25. Okay, try these: http://www.peteducation.com/article.cfm?cl...9&articleid=729 image from http://beaglesunlimited.com/beaglehealth_demodecticmange.htm has pictures: http://www.asiahomes.com/singaporetpvet/do...y_Singapore.htm *Warning! This Site contains graphic pictures. Some fights, some abuse, some mange. The photos are before and after photos of rescued dogs.* There are a few photos of bad mange though. http://www.compassionforcamden.org/rescues.html Don't suppose you could ask a vet? I know the ones in MT took care of the shelter dogs for free. That would be your best bet I think.
