    I have had dogs all my life...trained them, showed them and now just have them as family members. I am a HUGE dog person and I agree with you completely. I can`t stand ill mannered canines. I keep my house clean, but there will always be SOME dog hair floating around....I have a Golden Retriever and a Papillon. I think that`s the prissiness Paleo`s talking about...people who can`t handle dog hair or drool or whatever.

My friend's dog knocked me over when I was pregnant after gouging big bleeding clawmarks in my legs and stomach, and they didn't bother stopping her till I was already down. Yeah, darn right I'll get out of their house. And not go back.
    Some people just shouldn't have pets.. if they aren't going to train them properly!

    I should have added the disclaimer -- I have known and loved and lived with some really great, well-trained dogs and I never had a problem with them. But bad experiences with bad dog owners (NOT bad dogs, it's not their fault!) have left me pretty leery. I guess that's my gripe of the day.

    I am talking about someone who is dating a person who has a dog (me). Totally agree about badly behaved dogs. I'm talking about getting peeved because there is a little dog fuzz on the carpet.

    Ah! Yeah, then definitely they have to make up their mind and either be cool with it, or be gone.

    Just read the People magazine issue called "half their size" with a bunch of huge weight loss success stories. However, it sounded more like advertising as each story mentions a certain diet: Curves, Medifast, Weight Watchers ,Jenny Craig. One of the ladies in the story even tells how she is a spokesperson for Medifast. The following page was a HUGE double page ad for weight watchers. UGH.

    The only decent story was the man's story who said he ate more salad and did p90X.

    I am happy for them and am glad they lost the weight but it was hardly an inspirational read and I wonder how much they REALLY learned about health while losing all that weight. One lady said she has been STARVING but is glad to be 80 pounds smaller. I prefer primal diet as it is easy and i don't feel starving and i barely think about food except now the smell of meat makes my mouth water!

    Anything that fits in the ear like a Bluetooth, earbuds irritate the insides of my ears. I've even tried special soft earbuds, don't help much.
