puppywishes I will give you props for standing by your beliefs and that is cool. It makes for a more intersting board and noone should change what they honestly think for anyone. On the other hand you talk the talk but it doesnt seem like you really walk the walk. Why is it such a big deal to give out medical advice when its mostly about trivial problems. You can go to a first aid pet book written by a vet to get the same answers we are giving. That is medical advice given by a vet without seeing the pet. It is a good thing to share your knowledge because all knowledge is borrowed from someone. I have been a RVT since 98 and am glad when I can save someone a vet bill for something trivial. Its a good thing and if you dont like it then stop posting. You are just working yourself up over nothing. You have really given what I think is horrible advice or opinions on some matters. Put down a dog due to a bite or ban pit bulls because they are killing everyone. It is very narrow minded opinions and in your profession you have to have an open mind with most things. HAve a good evening.
"You still haven't shared with us what your praiseworthy dog training techniques, that are sooooo superior to those that any of us have used, are. Why is that?:
What does that have to do with this topic. You got a bee up your nose and you need to blow it out.
Leave me alone.
People like you try to make people afraid to speak their minds. Your being a bully and I would like you to stop.
This topic has nothing to do with a ton of stuff you are talking about. You are trying to make this an attack on "puppywishes", when the topic is ON LINE HEALTH INFORMATION. Good or bad, we should be allowed to speak our minds without being attacked.
puppywishes. you started this topic. you berated everyone that didnt agree with you, which was pretty much everyone that replied. now you are whining about how you are being picked on. if you would just close that gaping hole in your face and step away from your comp, things may die down. cant cry about being abused as long as your still blowing smoke out of your butt ! we get that you dont think anyone else has a right to give an opinion. we got that way back at the beginning. we dont really care though. if we want to give advice, thats exactly what we are going to do. if you have a problem with it, too bad so sad. sucks to be you. get over it.
Heather and Utopia, very well said, both of you. Let me see if I've got this right...
So far this evening I've been called a bully who thinks we should return to an era when women shouldn't vote and slavery was a fine institution, not to mention trainers should hang their dogs (sort of makes it hard to know if the training "took" though, wouldn't you say?). I'd say those might be considered less than polite comments about a fellow poster.
Puppywishes, if you believe that your other posts and threads, your general demeanor on the forum is not taken into consideration when folks form opinions on your views, I have some nice land I'd like to make you a great deal on. It's in the Glades, but hey, with ever growing expansion, it'll be developed in no time at all!

No, you're an expert, so share your expertise! I've asked you in two other topics about your holier than thou techniques, and you've evaded them both.
I would go buy your book, but my dog just sneezed so I think I should rush him to the emergency room, rather than ask people on here if it might be related to his allergies...and that would take up all of my money!
puppywishes I will give you props for standing by your beliefs and that is cool.
* Thank you
It makes for a more intersting board and no one should change what they honestly think for anyone.
* Way cool. I could not agree more :)
On the other hand you talk the talk but it doesnt seem like you really walk the walk.
Why is it such a big deal to give out medical advice when its mostly about trivial problems.
* I don't think that you can tell what is trivial on the net
You can go to a first aid pet book written by a vet to get the same answers we are giving.
* Yes, written by a vet. I do get your point here and I have given it some thinking before I started this topic.
That is medical advice given by a vet without seeing the pet. It is a good thing to share your knowledge because all knowledge is borrowed from someone. I have been a RVT since 98 and am glad when I can save someone a vet bill for something trivial.
* I agree, if, in fact, the problem is trivial. But how can you know if the problem is trivial? You can't expect the common owner to give you all the relevent facts pertaining to their dogs health, in an email, Can you?
Its a good thing and if you dont like it then stop posting. You are just working yourself up over nothing.
* In truth, I am downloading music and putting the songs on my MP3 player as I read and type. I am fine with people saying they do not agree. Although heather has upset me a tad.
You have really given what I think is horrible advice or opinions on some matters.
* I am sorry you feel that way. I would not call your advice horrible, rather, I would simply call it "your advice".
Put down a dog due to a bite
* I did not read it as a bite, my feeling was that the owner was talking about an attack where the dog moved from one area and ran across a room to attack a child. That is not simply a bite. It is an attack. Also, I am a parent and I feel that we cannot protect our children enough.
or ban pit bulls because they are killing everyone.
* I never said that. You are looking at only a part of a much bigger comment.
It is very narrow minded opinions and in your profession you have to have an open mind with most things.
* I agree. But in the end, we must make up our minds.
"So far this evening I've been called a bully who thinks we should return to an era when women shouldn't vote and slavery was a fine institution..."
I never said any of this! You are twisting my post to make yourself angry. You do not agree with my views on medical advice and you are mad because I don't agree with you. Please stop taking my text out of all context.
OK kids this has been more fun than I've had on here in longer than I can remember, but I really do have to hit the bed. It's been a long day, so will have to say good night and you kids' fight nicely now.
written by puppywishes "They seem not to care when a child is killed. They will not look at their breed, rather, they keep on pointing the finger at people. Well, you can't ban people CAN YOU, but we can remove a breed that continues to kill and send people to the hospital. "
I do not know how that could be misunderstood? You do condradict yourself in the whole post but this is what you said and to me it sounds like your quick fix is by banning pits. There are so many fatal attacks by other breeds that happen everyday too. To me a professional dog trainer would know that and completely understand each breed. Before I could call myself a dog trainer I would have to have spent a ton of time with each breed and know them.
You said if your child was having trouble breathing would you jump on the net to find info. That is a completely differnt thing from your dog and if my dog or anyone here has a dog with breathing problems we would all go to the vet immideately. I have never heard anyone post anything related to an emergency. If someone did I have a strong feeling that everyone on this board would jump down there throats for not being at a vet. I think you love all this attention and keep posting stuff to see what we reply. I honestly do not think you are this narrow minded. What book did you write? I would like to buy it to read it...
