Actually, you should be. Indiana..home of the toothless, the trailers and the brain damaged (due to inbreeding). Must suck being you!
The only thing hoosier about me is that is where my server generates from. Illinois is my home, and that is how it will stay. I cannot control the route my server takes. Seems you are quite the expert on being brain damaged and toothless, based on your expert knowledge. You must have quite an extensive history of it in your family. The only thing that sucks for me, is knowing there are ignorant breeders like yourself polluting the gene pool. Then again, I don't have to see or hear you, so life is actually quite well.
Cats, are far superior to dweeebs like you.

Once again, it appears "Gay" is an area you have intimate knowledge of, so no use arguing. It is best to go with your strengths, no matter what they are. So, your expertise on being male and gay shines through your posts like a beam of sunlight. Thanks for sharing your wealth of experience.

What ever happened to that cat you used to shave all the time? I think your daughter should put you in a home for the criminally insane. Too bad you didn't set yourself on fire.
Samantha, report him to the ASPCA and the SCPD, and follow up that they made a report

Everyone is scared of this guy. He is like 94 years old. He demanded I go out with him and I am only 22. He took me to some weird buffett at the American Legion. He then said if I went home with him and let him tie me up upside down from the chandelier and flick hot pennies at me he would rake the leaves at my parents house forever. He is a little kooky to say the least. I met more normal people giving lap dances at Cafe Royale. He also knocked up one of the other girls in the office. He promises to move her and the baby to his log cabin in Montana.

I'm not a VET but maybe the Dog swallowed a foreign object. These could be a cause for these ailments.
yeah, and it's not like they can tell you if they swallowed or not. Communication is hard with a dog who doesnt speak english

My dogs speak English.

When you come to a country to live, you must learn the language.

Although, at the park, when the idiots that make up the SC Parks police are handing out tickets for playing with your dog off leash, I just say my dogs are illegal aliens, and we are on our way.

You can't touch illegal aliens, 2 or 4 legged.

Ay, Dios mio.

These vets are killing me. I got a new dog from the pound that was 10 years old. I have only had him a few months. This lousy vet tells me the dog has ESS and that he needs his testicles removed. The procedure will cost $4,200. Why remove an animals testicles?Shut your mouth Samantha! I am not the father of that kid. I called to Peter Kings office to complain, but he says they have no juridiction here. I will not let anyone except a female dog touch my dogs nuts. It is not even the money, just the principle of it all. Again Samantha and Thai Sticks don't comment on me.

Whacko Charlie Wells showed up at our office again today. He didn't bring any animals this time thank god. He claims to have taught hamsters(6 of them) to play basketball by hooking up nets that dispense food.

He wanted to know if anyone had kids who could enter them in a science fair.

We had not seen him since he showed up and shot his dog in the waiting room of our office over a bill.
