hmm. muzzles. what a concept. what ever it takes. You could be a little more compassionate and realize that if you continue to pour out criticism on every one that tries to be a part of this, that you will lose all the people who could use your expertise, that is if you have any.
roberta, i am quite sure LPN's suggestion of a muzzle was directed to you, and you alone. it would be nice for once if you could actually contribute a little more to this forum than just your snide remarks about the members here.
cheerydog/nickster i apologize, for what i am not exactly sure, as i really don't think i said anything offensive about either of the 2 posts you made. i was just questioning what i read. maybe the two of you haven't been on this forum long enough to understand that it is has happened a zillion times in the past where we have had a new poster come on and carry on a dialog with themselves. most of the time they do remember to sign out first and use their other screen name, but they eventually slip up and are caught. i think that you can see how the first 2 posts of this thread would have led some to believe we were experiencing another such thread, and should not be so testy about it.
cheerydog, i am sorry about the loss of your dog. it hurts and it will be many years, if ever, you will be able to think of him without tears. just know that he is in a better place now, free from what ailed him, and is happily awaiting your arrival while he is bounding around playing with his new friends.
Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.
I like to stick up for people too, but you know, I'm sorry to say it but this thread is a pretty clear example of one or maybe two kids just messing around.
This is the internet. Sadly, people make light of serious situations and use them as opportunities to play games on boards or cause drama. Two new users in the same location. Okay. One whose dog JUST died, so they scramble immediately to THIS board to post about it. Instead of consoling with their voices, they're forced to communicate over the boards, instead.
Tad goofy, if you ask me.
My sympathy if someone did lose their pet, but it seems a bit on the prankster side, imo.
I have been reluctant to jump into this thread till now, due to my own little/big crisis at the moment. The reason I am doing so is to, somewhat, set the record straight. While I'm not a brand new member, I still was so very recently. I didn't have too many questions at first, but there were times when I did "bare my soul", mostly for others benefit (as perceived by me). Sometimes I was "jumped on" and sometimes I received heartfelt sympathy for sad events that happened up to 16yrs in the past. Sometimes I was right, IMO, and sometimes I had to "eat crow". As for scout, she has usually been the last to "jump" on anyone, and the first to apologise when thinking herself wrong. In the end, I can just say; as I've seen said recently on another forum; if you (term used genericly) are that unhappy with the others on this forum, there are plenty of other forums to try. Why continue to torture yourself here? Have a Blessed day.
im soooooo sorry to hear that. i lost a dog back in november and all i can say is that time is the best healer. i also thought alot about how we would be together again someday and wrote alot of peoms. and think about all the good times you two had together. you made his life worth living and think about all the other situations he could have been in and then about the life you gave him and how great it was.
"Dogs arent our best friends...were their best friends...."
I had to put my much loved golden retriever/ collie mix, Patrick to sleep on March 5 of this year. He was only 11 years old. My husband was in the hospital at the time. I am having a very difficut time with this. I cry everyday and even at work. My heart is breaking. His back leg reflexes went. It seemed to happen so fast. I just am in a state of shock and sorrow. Please know I feel for you, too. They tell me time heals. All I know is our home is not the same anymore.
