    Oh. I know it's not the dogs' fault. We have bred them to be like that but now we are responsible for taking care of the little fluff-brains.
    And +1 on dogs left without any human companionship. That is just mean.

    • My gripe for today is that I have to pay $23 shipping on $35 ExFit gymnastic rings.

      But I guess a one-time payment of $60 is fair if I'm not going to pay for a gym membership from April to October.
      You lousy kids! Get off my savannah!

          We have a border collie/blue heeler mix and are thinking about getting another same type when we move into more space. I love them, whip-smart and great personalities. And better than a personal trainer. Sad thing is that they end up in shelters a lot because people don't realize how much work they are. Most days she gets walked 2-5 miles. In the summer she gets to swim in the streams as well (we go in with her) but even that isn't really enough.

            • UGH... wake up this morning with the news of the earthquake in Japan. Called parents to see if they know about it. Mom starts going off on a preaching sermon about us living in the biblical End Times. Not want I wanted to hear this morning. Kinda hung up on her. Now feel very guilty. Very quite about my religious beliefs and it's always a thorn between my parents and me.
              I learned a valuable lesson with the first steer I sent to slaughter. I should have named him Hamburger and not Snookers.

                I rescued a Blue heeler from going to the pound. Great dog, hated giving her up but need to keep room for more unwanted babies to help! She is a awesome dog. They are tough, smart, compact and very 'in' to their people. Great dogs for people that love the outdoors.

                • On Facebook, whenever my sister posts something her 5 year old supposedly says, she uses "per".

                  As in: Per 5 Year Old, thank you Aunt Sanepsycho for the birthday gift! I was sad that you didn't come to my party.

                  Or: Per 5 Year Old, I miss you Aunt Sanepsycho, I wish you would come see me play tee ball. It would make me so happy to have my family there to cheer me on!

                  Per me: FB is not a business letter. It does not make you sound more intelligent to use "per" instead of "Johnny said to tell you...". Somehow I don't think he asked you to post a message to me on your rarely used Facebook account. And I love how your passive-aggressiveness now includes using your son and Facebook.

                  And maybe if you had shown any interest in me, my children as they were growing up, and helping take care of your aging parents before they died, instead of deciding after having a later in life baby that family is suddenly important, I would care more.

                    I grew up with a border collie mix. I have no clue what he was mixed with (possibly retriever), but he was a SMART and energetic dog. He'd play tag, he'd play fetch, he was patient with us and our brilliant ideas for what to do with him, and he made one HELL of a guard dog. If they came through the back door with us, he was their best friend. If they came over the fence or appeared when we weren't home, he would make sure the cops had a DNA sample. He seemed pretty happy, but then again, he also had a half acre to roam over (he was an outdoor dog), he got ice in his water during the summer, we took him to the park every Saturday (he walked us while Mom played soccer), he got table scraps most nights, and we brought him inside when it got below freezing. I LOVED that dog.

                        • My gripe is that I think I have to switch from being poo-less back to using shampoo and conditioner to protect my fake blonde.

                          • My gripe of the day:
                            Morons who build multiple nuclear reactors in one of the most seismically active places on the planet!!!!!!!

                            Epic-level stupidity.

                            • My gripe today: That I have to drive an hour+ to Philadelphia when extensive light rail all over Eastern Pa would make so much sense.
