@Lena Otterman@facebook you are just going through the thread saying "no"and"nope"to people. Thanks for your contribution!
100% wearing the bellybutton-covering granny panties my bf always makes fun of.
For someone approaching their third fatherless Father's Day, and for some reason finding it more difficult this year than the previous two, this was difficult to read. But that is not your fault and it was beautiful.
@Where Pies Go When They Die I found that there is a big difference depending on what kind of eyeliner you use. Physician's Formula makes a big fat liquid eyeliner with a pointy felt tip. I find it to be just the thing for the corner flick. Some people have an easier time with those little eyeliner brushes...so what I'm saying is try some different products maybe?
@kmc oh yeah, my dog was a terror up until he was close to 2 years old. Now he is 5 and so much better. He LOVES people and gets really excited when people he likes come around, which I don't think will ever change. BUT. He is 100 times better on a leash. Occasionally still pulls when there is an especially appealing piece of garbage he wants to sniff/eat, but usually he is great. He also used to be very destructive, especially with chewing up and sometimes eating fabric and paper items. He even had to get surgery when a sock got stuck in his intestine (not sure how - he had pooped out numerous socks in the past). He has all but stopped doing that, never chews up shoes or anything anymore. Occasionally will steal steal a dish towel and parade around with it proudly in his mouth, hoping he can play keep-away with someone, but so much better!
@wee_ramekin I would also add that GSDs can have a high prey drive, so they can tend to have a strong instinct to chase small animals. I have a shepherd mix, and she is like this. It's definitely something that can be managed, but my dog needs to be carefully introduced to small animals that she is expected to live/play with. We have cats at home, and my shepherd girl needs to be supervised when she is around them. She doesn't want to kill them per se, it's more of a chasing/playing kind of thing, but she can get carried away and play too rough if we don't intervene.
@rayray yeah exactly. This was so well-written, by the end I was like "freedom! Yeah! I don't need him!" And then I remembered that my relationship is actually pretty ok.
@rallisaurus cats forever! I have 2 black cats. One is an asshole and one is awesome but we love them both and actually chose them because black cats usually take longer to adopt.
@elysian fields Scooping it up with animal crackers, lots of animal crackers!
@Killerpants Everyone was waiting for someone to start this movement.
