    Good to know, since that's what I'm doing. I don't know if I'd refer to myself as part of Peat's crew however, he's a little too gentle and unassuming to have a crew. He is a very kind and generous man though and he's personally helped me a lot with my thyroid issues. I'm pretty much med-free now thanks to his advice.

    I think I need to research Akitas and venture onto the flame boards later. I usually just ignore them b/c I'm so far behind on all the arguments that it takes me days to catch up enough to be able to argue a point, so I stay away. Might venture in and see what's happening. Just for fun.

    Yeah, if they shed anything like my little dude (about 1/4 their size) it would be crazy. When I take the weasel to be groomed I get to hear about how many dog's worth of fur they collect
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    I'm very glad to hear it is working for you. Med-free is awesome! I use 'crew' in the lightest possible sense. Peat crowd would work as well. Just may way of identifying the more Peaty members of the forum - Derp, Yogabare, moluv, J3nn etc.

    Ah, I must admit that I do love me some Mexican coke. I just do not drink it often. Sarcastic old bird...yes, that works.

    Yep, for a month or so twice a year the produce a carrier bag of fur a day. And of course they don't do it at the same time, that would be too easy, one sheds 1st and then the other. So it's more like 2 months twice a year

    Yup. Sounds about right.

    Highly treasured as a status symbol by the upset classes and used for everything from babysitters to hunting bears.

    They are tremendously powerful creatures yet are naturally so gentle with people (especially children), but have a very high prey drive and can have high dog aggression if they haven't been well socialised as pups.
    I am terribly afraid of dogs after being bit, as a kid, by a dog I had known since it was a pup. My best friend has owned 2 Akitas and I learned to be comfortable around them. She brought her most recent akita, as well as two other dogs, when she spent 3 days with me earlier this year. My extended family couldn't believe I allowed dogs anywhere near me.

    My daughter is moving here and bringing her two dogs, that I've only been around for a few hours. She will be staying with me a few days until her belongings get here. To say I'm nervous is an understatement.

    I can certainly see why you would be nervous. I hope it works out well for you and the temporary pooch housemates.
