My name is Penny, I have 16 Bostons now, just added a beautiful new addition, a rescue from B.C. Lovely little 2 year old girl, I've named Pixie. When I say I have 16 dogs, I mean I co-own with my son Jesse; so they're not all at my house at the same time, unless he chooses to go on holiday. On a normal day , I usually have 4-9. I also have 6 cats, ranging in age from 14yrs to 9 months. I live in sunny Manitoba, Canada, where I work as a paramedic, teach for the Red Cross, and sub at the high school, on occasion. I have been off work for some months now, due to an extruded disk in my spine, and a couple of car accidents. I have 6 children, and 1 precious grandbaby, 2 last June 4th, called Liam. Unfortunately he lives in France. I have 3 foster kids right now, one is an emergency shelter case; so I won't have him more than 3 weeks, but I'll spoil him while he's here. Oh, I do have a husband, he works in oilfield construction in Northern B.C, and the Yukon, and comes home periodically.
Het Dakotah, I think it is great that you know what you want and your sticking by it. My folks told me when I got with my boyfriend that it wouldnt last and I had no idea what love was. They said I was too young.But guess what 18 years later( with 3 kids, 2 dogs, 3 rats and 3 horses- I like the number 3!)we are still togethjer and still very much in love! It does happen for some people. I wish you all the best. Tayza P.S. I"m from Australia.
Does it really surprise anyone that prissypets told few harmless lies?
I am sure she is not the first and certainly not the last that have embellished the truth about themselves to make them look a bit better and more interesting then they really are. We all have an alter ego. The Internet is just a venue for many to let it lose once in a while with no real world consequences. Why do you think "Second life" is so popular?
Just leave the poor kid alone already.
If I seem to have a superiority complex, it is because you make it so easy.
Thanks juno! Catlover, he is my dog and just to let you know, he is very real. I don't care if you like me or not, I am just going to start over, and who ever likes me, likes me! Meaning you don't have to say any thing else about me, so just leave my name out of any thing you type! I'll show you all (any one that cares to look at them and not just people that want to judge) more pictures of my other dogs.
The difference between first and fith in a race is the amount of pampering you give your horse.
Prissy-first you say you lied so everyone would like you. Now you say you don't care who likes you or not. Which one is the truth? No wonder so few believe anything you say.
As for embellishing the truth-why? What is wrong with telling the truth? I guess I have a boring life, but I'm perfectly happy with my 2 dogs that I bought from excellent breeders. I don't need to come on here and say I have 40+ dogs, or I rescued a bunch of dogs from a puppy mill, or I saved an abused dog.
And I guess that's one reason that it really pisses me off when people "claim" to do animal rescue. I have actually WORKED at an animal rescue, and it's not playing with dogs and trying to find homes for them like so many people on here try to make you believe. It's hiring vet techs to be there 24/7. It's trying to find the money for vet care-not just fleas and rabies shots-EMERGENCY care. (Care that a lot of people on here say they can't afford for their OWN pets!) It's dealing with lawsuits from pet owners who have abused their dogs, yet still want them back. It's dealing with your local townships and municipalities. It is NOT fun and games and a way to "be more popular". We are talking life and death here, and it's NOT something I (or anyone)should take lightly.
The average dog is a nicer person than the average person.
First there is no clique on here. Just pet loving people that some are tired of lies. If you have been on here long enough you would know how often someone comes on here filling us full of bull just to hear themselves typing.
What the big problem is that people that really do need help are not helped because most don't believe them or even want to read the threads any longer.
It is getting to where I can smell a troll a mile away! OR
I can tell when someone is very honest and just wants to do the best for their pets and looking for advice.
If you go back and look at prissypets threads I only posted to a couple when I first came to TP. I first thought she was a young child and then seen her 2? birthday coming up I thought, man she is over the top.
To me there is no reason for lying, it is pretty silly really. You are who you are and should be proud of it.
Spoon would be easier for you since you can just stick it in your pocket. I wanna see a horse picture with a spoon and an Odie picture with a spoon. Then I will believe they belong to you. May sound odd but you can understand that nobody has any reason to take your word as true at this point.
