In fact I'll likely get pushed off the bottom of the list as others compleat the grid today, but I'm on the list for the next hour or two. I think for my Elder title I'll take Grand Poobah JoSo, no... wait, Illustrious Grand Poobah JoSo. Yes, that fits, you can all call me Illustrious Grand Poobah Joso from now on.

that's so cool sprite, they really absorb so much when they're young
2:21 am

it is SO much fun! I only have to translate single words now. We are reading Arrows of the Queen by Mercedes Lackey.
2:21 am
jillibus

What's the book, sprite?
2:21 am
FranMag

jilli, you'll just have to keep looking ** the grid for it (add that)
2:22 am
dcseain

it's a hebrew letter, fran
2:22 am
jillibus

darn, don't know the book
2:22 am
jillibus

thank you fran
2:22 am
FranMag

oh thanks dc, didn't know that
2:22 am
dcseain

jilli, it's a hebrew letter ¡ay mi mente!
2:22 am
FranMag

yw jilli
2:23 am
sprite

it is totally painless indeed, Fran! I started out by reading a sentence and then translating it. After a while I read a sentence and let them translate with my help. And now I read, and they raise a hand when they don't know a word, and then the other translates, or me, if neither knows. They learn so fast.
2:23 am
sprite

jilli, I read a part of it in babblebooks!
2:23 am
jillibus

aleph, beth (I think) -- that's about all the Hebrew I know
2:23 am
FranMag

it's okay dc...we all have those days. :-)
2:23 am

i read that long ago. i barely remember it. may be worth a revisit.
2:24 am

16th letter of hebrew alphabet
2:24 am

lovely book
2:24 am

i haven't caught up with babblebooks sprite, something i should do soon.
2:24 am

you can let it play while babbling, Fran :)
2:24 am
jillibus

sprite, I must do something about that some day -- skype, I mean -- but I never seem to have time.
2:25 am
dcseain

i think that would be very distracting for me, sprite.
2:25 am
jillibus

how do we get to babblebooks?
2:25 am
FranMag

it is for me dc, i have to listen to the podcasts when nothing else is happening.
2:25 am
sprite

you will, jilli, when the time is right. For listening, you need nothing special. You can just use the player that is on the site itself, hit the play button and it loads, hit again and it plays, if I remember correctly.
2:26 am
FranMag

www.babblebooks.podbean.com i think.
2:26 am

dc, that is for women. We easily multitask :)

sprite, i grew up in a house with a radio and a tele on most ef the time. I rarely listen to much at home. silence is golden. I break out the violin or piano if i want noise mostly.
2:27 am

wtg dc!
2:28 am
FranMag

speaking of multitasking, today i was listening to iTunes, babbling, playing two games of scrabble and doing laundry. :-)
2:28 am
sprite

I only have radio or tv on when I really want to listen/watch something. For the rest, I love the quiet. But when I babble and need to listen to a podcast, it is not a problem.
2:28 am
sprite

Fran, you could be the princess of multitasking!
2:28 am
dcseain

laundry is great that way, it goes while you do other things.
2:29 am

2:41 am
dcseain

gosh, were un5 a snake, it'a bit me
2:41 am

in dutch, dolphin is a great word. Dolfijn. Dol in dutch means crazy, wild, playfully-wild. Fijn means both fine and pleasant. :)
2:41 am
dcseain

2x na5.10
2:42 am
dcseain

dol might be related to dolt - a stupid or dense person.
2:42 am
FranMag

that's cute sprite
2:42 am
dcseain

fran, ur icon keeps making me think of breakfast cereal.
2:43 am
sprite

I don't think so, dc. Dol in dutch is really more wild, uncontrollable. Not dense.
2:43 am
FranMag

breakfast cereal? how
2:43 am
sprite

awww sweet ghoulies, Fran!
2:43 am
dcseain

yes, but if we allow for dol being a proto-germanic syllable, one could see where both derivations could come from.
2:43 am

2:57 am
sprite

yeah, I know dc... I was wondering whether it was stupid of me I could not find it at first, or that it is because of my pure brain...
2:57 am

2:57 am
dcseain

LOL
2:58 am
sprite

sorry to be unclear... I found it, but it took me some time, and I thought, I should have seen it earlier... or perhaps I should not :D
2:58 am
dcseain

oh, my, maybe i'm in the tee-hee zone. :)
2:58 am

there has to be a different reason, because we know you aren't stupid, but you also don't have a pure brain. :-)

Spanish is like that with sexual bits, too.
3:03 am

sad, isn't it. Such nice things and no nice names for it.

My little girl has an ordinary sounding name but we changed it last minute - she wasn't breathing when she was born, it was a very dramatic story, and we called her after the midwife who ssaved her life
3:47 am
sprite

and we call here Caya, but we chose to put her second name in front... because we thought Caya Isis sounded like a kind of disease, and because my first name starts with a C as well. Easier to separate the mail this way.
3:47 am
sprite

wow Liz... my daughter didn't breath either at birth.
3:47 am

Pelinkovac Gorki

Pelinkovac Gorki makes you feel good.

The most popular among bitter liqueurs, Pelinkovac Gorki, is distinguished by strong and agreeable aroma. It quickly found its way to a wide range of admirers. Due to the prevailing flavour of wormwood, well known throughout centuries as a medicinal herb, Pelinkovac Gorki has been recognised as indispensable in moments of relaxation and companionship. 31% vol.

I cant take a lot of over the counter drugs as i am allergic to tetrocycline (the main incredient in most antibiotics and my Antidepression drugs stop me from taking over the counter stuff

It is always fascinating to ask kids in my office what they are planning "to be" for Halloween. The boys are into superheros, firefighters, policemen. So many girls are princesses, cheerleaders and brides. The latter makes me concerned.

I don't know what any of these things are... I'm still stuck on Sesame Street characters like cookie monster and oscar the grouch
6:01 am

oh animals AND kids make for cute pictures... either/or
6:01 am

There is a lot of crap, more of it detrimental to girls than the boys, IMO.
6:01 am

ok... never heard of them... bratz... know those...daughter has a few.... i have noticed that they are easier to dress then a barbie was... a barbie was a struggle to dress..I hated barbies as a kid for that VERY reason

I was volunteered to watch a friend's three year old the other day. I was subjected to multiple shows of Sponge Bob. I'm sorry, but after that I told my kids I will stick fork prongs in my eyes before I allow another showing of Sprong Bob in the house. My grandkids will just have to suffer.

6:05 am

i'm disturbed by all the sex kitten clothes that mmake their way down to clothes for 6 year olds... belly shirts, off shoulder, etc... these little girls look so pathetic, particularly the pudgy ones
6:05 am

lol i brainwash my girls..."We don't like spongebob, we don't like Bratz, yucky DoodleBops, no- that candy tastes terrible" and my favorite, "So, what kind of doctor are you going to be when you grow up?"

6:26 am
herinfernallady

My friends son had to ring her whilst IN CLASS as the teacher had left the room and he was being bullied. Turns out he was punched so hard he had a bruise. But this kid had to use his phone to call his mum to call the school. It is disgusting. He got suspended for 2 days for swearing at a teacher (proofed as here say) These kids get nothing for hitting him
6:28 am
carleekat

yeap... I know... the teachers here anyway...refuse to do anything about bullying...their attitude is "don't do it" and instead of being adults and actually intervening they are completely putting the responsibility of stopping it upon the kids... they require "prep time" and so therefore cannot be on the school yard to supervise except 5 mins before the bell ( mind lunch time is from 11:30 to 12:15 and the kids who eat at school are outside unsupervised from 11:50 to 12:10
6:29 am

The bunnies are all cute and well, Lady.

i have some friends that are teachers. from the amount of work they do outside school hours on prep and marking and the constant increase in class sizes, they get a bit of a raw deal. then there is the issue of lawsuits. they walk on eggshells all the time because all it takes is an accusation of touching a student to put them on administrative leave. i'd say a good bit of the trouble lies within families where parenting is left to the tv and the general tone of the culture. life is getting meaner and it isn't all the teacher's fault.

OH Dear! I can't stay quiet on this subject. The school system has removed the parental rights and involvements. They've taken over teaching our kids more than their academics. Then they remove the teachers capabilities for any sort of discipline and control in the classroom. What do they expect.

honestly I think alot of the problems going on in ontario schools anyway are the teachers that are teaching now..were raised with no mandatory curriculumn of the late 70's early 80's. My son had a teacher that honestly could not string together a sentence without using "um" and like" before every other word

i ride public transit every day and i am stuck with a busload of high school kids. the youth culture has change drastically. court dates and arrests are signs of social achievement. violence is glorified, planned and routine among both genders. it isn't just the teachers, it is a cultural problem and mandated curicula hasn't done a damn thing to fix it. in fact the harris innovation of hamstringing the teachers to the three 'r's has left whole segments of the school population out to twist in the wind. it works fine for the bulk of average kids but abandons the under and over achievers. ain't no perfect system but the problems run deep and wide.

now there's a point. kids shouldn't be allowed to use computers for most class work until they are well into high school. i work with people that need calculators to do rudimentary addition and subtraction.

Credit where it's due #1. You help them out where i cannot. I was no use to you either in that regard, but tried to intervene other ways, with people that actually taught it correctly to you.
7:06 am
Ogdens Nut

Haz, did you see the report from the Univ. of Munich where they say that being in regular contact with a dog causes a 29-fold increase in the risk of women developing breast cancer ?
7:06 am
Uniquity

Exactly - one of my many parents or relatives could explain it, and you made that happen.
7:06 am
LoriP

They certainly don't get it in school. "teacher says we don't need to know". I loathe that statement
7:06 am
Jacula

Zen - what??
7:07 am
LoriP

Zen, that sounds like junk science 101 numbers.....
7:07 am
Haz1558

Yes, I did, Zen. It was very interesting but I'll wait for the report to come out with the opposite conclusions.
7:07 am
carleekat

ok all...am off...enjoy the day... the whirlwind begins..now... catch you all friday
7:07 am
Jacula

'Bye, carlee.
7:07 am
Scarlet

Have the best that you can make it, kattie. Be tough, dear. *Hugs*
7:08 am
LoriP

Take care carlee, be safe. ***halloween hugs***
7:08 am
Haz1558

Bye carlee.
7:09 am
Ogdens Nut

Does your local vet have a comment on that report?
7:09 am
LoriP

***and a hush falls over the room, as carlee departs*** :)
7:09 am
LoriP

LOLOL I glanced down and saw that as "vocal vet". :-)
7:09 am
Haz1558

I don't know whether he saw it or not. I'll have to run the theory past him, the paper is still here.
7:10 am
Jacula

Any comment on that report probably contains the words relating to male bovine faecal matter.
7:10 am
Haz1558

He's a vocal vet when farmers ask ' Will he be long?' 'Tell them I'm driving a car, not a helicopter!'
7:10 am
LoriP

***To err is human, to forgive bovine***
7:11 am
Uniquity

*groan*
7:11 am
Jacula

LOL! That's what P says when he's delivering. Substitute 'wagon/lorry' for car.
7:11 am
Jacula

LOL, Lori.
7:11 am
Haz1558

The report Zen is talking about claims that the Mouse Mammary Tumour Virus may be harboured by and transferred to humans by dogs.
7:12 am
Ogdens Nut

Why male, Jacula - are you a misandrist?
7:12 am
Haz1558

The same farmers who urge speed of vet arrival are always the slowest to pay their bills. Make a theory out of that!
7:12 am
Jacula

Zen - no, but the expression is.;)
7:13 am
Ogdens Nut

Then why use it
7:13 am
Jacula

Or rather the expression refers to the male of the species.
7:14 am
LoriP

Well, I am off to seek the elusive glow-sticks. I had a stash here in this chaos, but i cannot find them. ***no comments from #1 on this***
7:14 am
Jacula

Okay - I'll leave out tommyrot and just say what a load of old rubbish, Zen. Or is that ageist?
7:15 am
LoriP

Y'all take care, and if i don't pop back in have 'yerselves a great day!
7:15 am
Haz1558

Tommyrot - perhaps would offend veterans. And hogwash won't go down well with pigs.
7:15 am
Jacula

Haz - I seem to remember that being mentioned in the James Herriot books.
7:16 am
Jacula

(The hurry uppers and slow payers, I meant.)
7:16 am
Dachef

I had tommyrot once. Nasty business.
7:16 am
Jacula

LOL, Dachef. Hello. Long time no see.
7:16 am
Haz1558

It's ages since I read the Herriot books. I always loved the mistake made by a receptionist in rendering swine erisypalis as Smiling Harry Syphilis.
7:17 am
Haz1558

And yes, the slow payment people have always been with us.
7:17 am
Ogdens Nut

Far be it for a youngster like me to comment on agism, jacula!
7:17 am
Haz1558

Hello Dachef, nice to see you!
7:18 am
Haz1558

Don't let him get away with that, Jacula. He's got grey hair and everything.
7:18 am
Haz1558

And I missed saying bye to Lori!
7:19 am
Jacula

Must be a GOG then, Haz. *grins*
7:19 am
Ogdens Nut

Yes, but I dyed it grey specially to enter the George Clooney look-a-like competition
7:19 am
Haz1558

He's a George wannabe.
7:19 am
Jacula

Snorts with laughter.
7:20 am
Dachef

any trolls about today? I have a massive hangover and could do with feeling socially superior for a bit.
7:20 am
Jacula

Dachef - we will leave if you mention that word again.
7:20 am
Haz1558

None today - but Dachef, take your place in line, I'm the smarty pants one today.
7:20 am
Ogdens Nut

No, just a George lok-a-like, Haz
7:21 am
Dachef

Jac- the "H" word?
7:21 am
Jacula

No, the 't' word, Dachef.
7:21 am
Dachef

ahhhhhhhh, sorry.
7:22 am
Haz1558

Some of us are still suffering post traumatic stress over the whole thing. Have you put in your compensation claim yet, Jacula?
7:22 am
Jacula

Haz - is a smarty pants higher ranking than a smartarse? MrP bestowed the former title upon me. *grins*
7:23 am
Jacula

Still filling the form in, Haz. Difficult, since my hands are still shaking.
7:23 am
Haz1558

Gosh, I don't know. Does the bestower of the title have anything to do with the rank?
7:24 am
Haz1558

And the tic - still twitching?
7:24 am

LOL - You two need to start a comedy club
7:25 am
Haz1558

That's good. The doctor says my delusions may wear off, but not before I get my claim.
7:26 am
Jacula

Any chance of you being delusional enough to think that my ironing pile is yours?
7:26 am
Haz1558

It's selective delusion disorder.
7:27 am
Jacula

Hmm... thought it might be.
7:27 am
Haz1558

A bit like the selective hearing loss I note in my husband and children.
7:28 am
Jacula

That'll be the washing the dishes deafness etc.
7:29 am
Haz1558

Yes, and the Tidy Up Your Room one. One daughter is home for a week from university. Her idea of unpacking is to empty the contents of the case over the floor.
7:30 am
Dachef

if you liove on your own, you can say "sod the dishes". However, they pong after a few days.
7:30 am
Haz1558

Speaking of forms, have you ever had to fill in one for Attendance Allowance? Three of us spent hours a couple of years ago trying to figure it out. The best bit was 'List your medication......... Please do not attach your medication to this form.'
7:30 am
Jacula

Well, Haz., yove seen my daughter's room. It looks no different even though she did take lots off stuff off with her to Uni.
7:31 am
Jacula

Haz - Mum and I filled one of those in. I don't remember seeing that bit though.
7:31 am
Jacula

Dachef - paper plates etc. might be the answer. Mind you, you've got to wash them to recycle them.
7:32 am
Haz1558

Maybe it's a Northern Ireland version for the bewildered.
7:32 am
Jacula

Oh, LOL, Haz. Must remember to tell my Mum about that.
7:33 am
Dachef

in my restaurant I ma the cleanest man on the planet - at home I'm the untidiest man on the planet.
7:33 am
Haz1558

You just know that in the previous version people sent in their tablets, painstakingly sellotaped on.
7:34 am
Haz1558

But is it clean, Dachef? A place can be clean and untidy. It's when it's dirty and untidy that problems start and Kim and Aggie start showing up.
7:34 am
Jacula

lol. On 'phone to Mum now.
7:35 am
Jacula

Off 'phone - her doorbell rang also.
7:35 am
Haz1558

At least you know where her priorities lie.
7:35 am
Jacula

She's going to dig our copy of the old form out.
7:36 am
Jacula

It was the 'freezer man' apparently.
7:36 am
Haz1558

Oh, the freezer man. The iceman cometh.
7:36 am
Uniquity

nato doesn't work? Bah.
7:37 am
Jacula

I'd better leave my final 25 words until later... I can hear Kim & Aggie advancing up my path.
7:37 am
Haz1558

Will THEY do your ironing?
7:37 am
Jacula

Haz - He got there before you... it says 'Eissman' on his van.

Agreed, TO. I'm going to the list with 16 left.
7:42 am

Good morning TO. We don't talk about dreadful, we use happy words like 'challenging' and 'vocabulary stretching'.

Anyway, lunch time, so I'd better get some food prepared. Bye for now!

7:50 am

there is for my BF -- hes out of work right now, and im paying for everything. :/
8:21 am
Scarlet

Oh, bummer, Eva. There seems to be so much of that right now...
8:22 am
EvaNadine

yeah, hes been getting the run-around from a few companies and it seems to take people weeks, if not MONTHS to actually hire someone...
8:22 am
Scarlet

What profession is he seeking employment in for placement?
8:23 am
Scarlet

Has he tried Craig's List for your area?
8:23 am
Scarlet

Or, Monster dot com?
8:24 am
EvaNadine

well, he was a Bio and Anthro major back in college...
i know he is interested in GIS Mapping and in survey-type work, but i think at this point, he will take just about anything with a decent paycheck...
hes been looking everywhere....
putting in resumes, hearing back from some, getting interviews, but despite telling him they love him, no one is actually HIRING him....

he did apply yesterday for unemployment, so hopefully that will help a little
8:26 am
EvaNadine

thanks Une!
8:26 am
Judi

Yes, good vibes, Eva. Job hunting bites. Hope he lands a good one sooner rather than later.
8:27 am

At least he isn't a lump who expects you do to everything, Eva... too much of that is happening, too.
8:27 am

Don't be sorry, Une... it's a good clue for everyone~

etouffee - it is a wonderful sauce served over rice. usually made with shrimp or crawfish. first, i start with a roux (that may be a new one too) and then add the celery, bell pepper, onion, then the other stuff. it is superb.

gumbo is also more creole in origin - they thicken theirs up with okra as well. cajuns use more meat products as they are typically hunters...

3:22 pm

no maam, that's an understatement - spent the majority of 'the exorcist' sitting in the lobby, while my friends were all in the show, soon there was a group of up chickens, we had a great time, i'll never forget that

I will never quite forget my first really scary one. My brother and I took turns peeking over the seat back at Ghost of Frankenstein. And it was REALLY scary walking the few blocks home from the theater!!
3:24 pm

By the way, that was when it was a new movie 8-)

We had a bigger dog back then, but he didn't go to the movie with us. I seem to remember being a bit leery of the outdoors after dark for a while 9-)
3:27 pm
helenkeller

pomeranians are loyal, fearless & have a very annoying bark, tyvm!
3:27 pm
Lizsark

actually second thoughts - I bet he's more protective than my soppy labrador :)
3:27 pm
Lizsark

Helen I was only joking honest! My Nan had pommies and they were all fearless and gorgeous
3:27 pm
Erilar

My current dog, a Minischnauz, is good at making brave sounds--as long as it

3:28 pm

Hi Tyger
3:28 pm
tygerbryght

Poms are fearless, but it's more of a yip than a bark.
3:29 pm
tygerbryght

Like jilli, I had Danes. *Nothing* like a Dane for protection! :)
3:29 pm
helenkeller

i know liz, i was being silly
3:29 pm
Erilar

Labs tend to be friendly in general in my experience.
3:29 pm
Lizsark

:) *hugz*
3:29 pm
helenkeller

yes, a dog the size of a horse is bound to scare the bad guys
3:29 pm
tygerbryght

Labs are rarely protective, but they're great dogs all the same
3:30 pm
Lizsark

Tyger I had two cockers before my lab and they were dab hands at seeing off people I didn;t want at the house :) Bless them!
3:30 pm
helenkeller

true, yips for sure
3:30 pm
Erilar

Friendliest dog in our neighbor is a Newfie 8-)
3:30 pm
tygerbryght

yup, HK, most people don't know that Danes are usually friendly
3:30 pm
Lizsark

Tyger - he is adorable (just not very selective!)
3:30 pm
tygerbryght

of course, that's until somebody acts threatening
3:31 pm
tygerbryght

most of the hunting dogs are friendly. Newfies were bred up from hunting dogs, I believe, but they were bred for rescue
3:31 pm
tygerbryght

Liz, I really like labs (who doesn't? only a dog-hater)
3:32 pm
tygerbryght

As for Newfs, you wouldn't want a rescue dog that wasn't very friendly and outgoing!
3:32 pm
Lizsark

Tyger he's a loveable rogue
3:32 pm
tygerbryght

a rogue? he's a "bad boy"?
3:33 pm
Lizsark

Last year at Crufts I watched a Nefie doing heelwork to music! It was soooo majestic

3:33 pm
Lizsark

bye Helen
3:33 pm
tygerbryght

oh, wow, Liz, I'd love to have seen that
3:34 pm
Lizsark

It was great Tyger - it was a display group with beeds ranging from a Chiuhuahua to the Newfie
3:34 pm
tygerbryght

I'm sooo impressed with the Landseers. I've seen just one in person, to get my hands on. The Newf wasn't a Landseer, was it?
3:35 pm
Lizsark

No it was a black
3:35 pm
tygerbryght

most of them are
3:35 pm
Lizsark

We're thinking of getting a new pup next year (just lost our last cocker girl) but we cant agree on what breed to go for
3:36 pm
tygerbryght

oh? if you go to shows, you've been exposed to lots of breeds
3:36 pm
Lizsark

I think thats the problem LOL
3:36 pm
tygerbryght

other than companionship, is there anything else you want of your dog?
3:37 pm
Lizsark

My husband wants another Cocker, my kids want a 2nd labrador and I am thinking I'd like a border collie
3:37 pm
Lizsark

I do agility with my lab so thats why I'm leaning towards a collie
3:37 pm
tygerbryght

you do know that they REQUIRE a lot of time and attention?
3:38 pm
lilliann

hi all.is everyone ignoring you meliae?na6/18 na and what a rabbit lives in h****
3:38 pm
Lizsark

Yes, three of my friends have them and I dog sit when they are on holidays
3:38 pm
tygerbryght

they certainly can shine in agility, but it's like having a 5 year old underfoot all the timme
3:38 pm
tygerbryght

okay, then, you know what you'd be letting yourself in for
3:39 pm
tygerbryght

maybe your family doesn't want such a demanding pet?
3:39 pm
Lizsark

Well, thats kind of what I like :) I do all the training, caring, grooming, feeding etc of all the dogs we have ever owned. My lab goes to agility and obedience class twice a week with me too
3:40 pm
tygerbryght

we weren't meaning to ignore anyone, lilli. but when doggy people get onto that subject, everything else flies out the window [blush]
3:40 pm
Lizsark

I dunno Tyger. My husband just desperately misses our cockers (dont we all?) and my kids just love rough housing with the lab - hes such a softy
3:40 pm
lilliann

we had a border collie from a rescue centre and had to have her put down as she went mad and started attacking other dogs and our other dog wouldn't go anywhere near her!
3:40 pm
tygerbryght

sounds to me like you have a fair argument on your side, liz
3:40 pm
Lizsark

Meliae, Lilli - sorry too :(
3:41 pm
Lizsark

aw thats awful :(
3:41 pm
Lizsark

Me too Tyger ;-)
3:41 pm
lilliann

it's ok, i've had dogs all my life aswell,so know what its like!i wasn't being mean!
3:41 pm
Lizsark

And now the cats are after my attention! Never get 5 minutes peace as it is lol
3:41 pm
tygerbryght

lilli, dogs that are really smart can go crazy, just like people. Heaven only knows what kind of home the dog had before you
3:42 pm
tygerbryght

Liz, if your family really wants just a nice, "soft" pet, you may lose the argument
3:43 pm
Lizsark

With five cuddly lap-cats and a labrador I think they already have that :)
3:43 pm
lilliann

she had been rehomed a few times apparently and just before we had got her she had had some pups and then kicked out, but apparently the pups wouldn't have survived without her as they were too young without her!1
3:43 pm
Lizsark

Aw Lilli :(
3:43 pm
tygerbryght

oh, man, what a rotten existence that poor dog had
3:44 pm
Lizsark

One of the collies I look after sometimes is a rescue. He was beaten about the head as a puppy and now has terrible balance
3:44 pm
tygerbryght

well, good luck to you, then, liz :)
3:44 pm
lilliann

we tried to rehome her on a farm but they said the best thing would be to put her down.it was a very hard decision
3:45 pm
Lizsark

Thats heartbreaking isn't it Lilli. I really feel for you
3:45 pm
tygerbryght

my foundation bitch, champion-sired, had been hit in the head (who knows how many times) and kept chained in the basement before I got heer
3:45 pm
lilliann

my brother had a cocker spaniel and they need alot of attention don't they liz?
3:45 pm
tygerbryght

Lilli, you did the best thing for her. She needed the Rainbow Bridge

Lizsark

Some people are just downright dreadful

Sherylr1961

evening all, can anyone clue me for the ou 6 pls and ty, can't figure it out
3:46 pm

Yes they do Lilli, especially in the grooming department! It used to take me 4 hours to completely hand strip and groom my black cocker
3:46 pm
Lizsark

Hi Sheryl
3:46 pm
lilliann

oh, tiger, thats terrible,some people should never be allowed to have pets

when i get pets i always get them from rehoming centres now and i usually get the worse looking one going which can cause alot of problems and cost alot of money but i can't help myself. who is going to have them otherwise
3:48 pm
Lizsark

Tyger ou6 - to best someone at the job that Tom Hanks does
3:48 pm

you're a softie, lilli. That's a good thing for the dogs
