I have been browsing this site for days before joining. I have relized this comunity forum is provided free. How wonderful! It is so nice to be able to discuss dogs with people all over the world!
ADMIN and Minnyar have been doing a wonderful job editing out any 'bad' material, but, I must suggest that some people review their thread before posting. Also, I think people need to start speaking their mind a little bit more.
Yes, ADMIN and Minnyar are canine experts, all you should always stand up for what you feel is the best way to do stuff. I have read a couple posts that have abusive language, and I don't feel that should be used, especially around our 'younger' members.
I think some people on here should be banned, but that is just my opinion. Also, I think pictures should be optional too. ADMIN and Minnyar are doing an exellent job removing all vulger material, but some abusive launguage is still present. It is amazing how many posts there are stored in this database!
For ADMIN and Minnyar, another idea, is that this should be a secure sight, as there are a lot of hackers out there, just a suggestion. A secure sights uses a public and personal code, that makes it inexcesable to almost all hackers. Again, just my opinion. Another thing I absolutley love about this site is that is loads fast, and there are no popups!
Another thing, is that you don't have to log in every time you enter the site, exellent! I've heard about the people overseas that are trying to buy dogs by the dozens. Horrible, just horrible! I have to say that this is the best dog forum I have ever been on! I don't like that some people try to advertise on the forum, that is really annoying. And, I have seen one or two abusive animal topics. Something about training a Pit Bull to be a killer. That shouldn't be allowed! It is horrible!
Also, pointless topics drive me crazy! Don't mean to complain here. And, I don't feel anyone should post personal information, such as age, gender, or location. It is just too risky. I must mention again, that I wish people would watch their launguage. I also don't really appreciate any topics realted to 'humping' or 'mating'. It's just not right to have young ones viewing this.
I have seen a couple people on this forum, that should be banned. I'm not naming any name though. I'm just trying to help, sorry is I ruffed some of you up. Didn't mean to. Thanks for listening to me gripe. LOL!!!

Mating and humping is a natural part of canine behavior and for those who are breeders or have trouble with a dog showing sexual or dominant aggression, they should be able to ask those questions because they aren't done in a vulgar manner.
There's no fight at all! Actually welcome to Terrific Pets. I was just saying that sometimes there re legitimate questions to go along with those words (like " my dog's mounting another male dog), so don't be offended.
LOL!!! Well Minnyar, I have read several of your posts, and you sound like a dog gineus! I am coming to you for advice next time! Ya, I love Affenpinschers. I have never owned any other dog. I don't keep mine in that messy, so called 'natural' style. I groom, and clip mine once a week, so they always stay in the show clip.
Oh yeah, regarding topics involving mating and humping.. well those topics are no less important than any others on here, IMHO. Many people want advice on when to (and whether they should) breed their dogs. Humping is a general phrase for an undesirable dominance related behavior in dogs. Both shouldn't be seen in as offensive, but natural behavior, even if we humans are disgusted by it at times. Dogs will be dogs, after all.
plus, i think youngsters are going to see it (humping) if they have dogs, and they are sure likely to ask what is going on with those dogs! so likely they are already exposed to it. it's good to be open about things, but not gross.
Yes, I see your point. But, there are some other dog forums that abuse this, and get pretty vulgar, involving no educational purpose. I just want to make sure that this site will stay clean and friendly. :)
i see YOUR point! so far it's okay. i remember after i first joined there was an off color post, before we had a moderator, and i emailed ADMIN about it and they immediately removed it. it was within probably 30 minutes that it was taken off.
