The idiot pomeranians next door bark when they're let out during the day, at any sound, which sets off every dog in the neighborhood.

    I could send you my German Pointer, he'd make a snack out of them.

    I need to get that border collie/ husky mix we've been talking about and let it "herd" them.

    I'm not saying that somewhere in this world this is not a Pomeranian that is a genius but...............all the ones I've ever met have had fuzz for brains. My uncle had five of them at one time. These creatures were too dim to even get their heads around the concept of house training. My uncle was this multi-millionare computer guy but, if you went to his house, you had to be careful not to step on the land mines. And they didn't need a reason to start yapping, they would just do it because their little nuero-circuitry was so inbred and twitchy. Ugh!

    I don't understand people that have animals and don't interact with them. I drive by a house several times a weeks that has a beautiful pitbull chained to a tree with a 10 foot chain. He is out there in all kinds of weather. I've yet to see anyone out there with him in the five years that I've lived there. It's so sad to think he'll live his whole life tied to a chain.

    Paleobird--I think it's a small dog mentality. Little heads, pea-sized brains. They just can't help it, no matter how cute they are.

    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.

    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.
