I adopted a 'two time return' pit bull mix that was very aggressive to other dogs.
First day she went after my older dog.
I beat her azz and she never did it again. Didn't hurt her, but scared her.
They were best friends till he passed away.
Now she has a little brother, black lab puppy, I just adopted. She lets him bite her all day and never gets mad at him.
She still wants to kill other dogs, at least not her house mates.
That was very kind of you to adopt that dog. I'm alone, and smallish, so I would never have been able to rein in such an animal.
Most on this thread have been following my dog, Baron, a German Shepherd I adopted some 8 weeks ago. He's had some behavioral issues, but not aggression toward other dogs or people who are not threatening me.
But I'll tell you he was very hard to handle at first. I didn't have the strength, or the heart, to beat on him, like more than one friend told me to do! But I do knee him in the chest when he tries his jumping routine. And, I picked up a can of "Stop That!" which terrifies him.
If you have a pit mix and a lab, you don't shy away from challenges. More power to you!

Chicago is a beautiful city. Probably has some of the best museums in the world. And it's clean. Not a garbage dump like SF.
I'll get there one day and I'm looking forward to the museums.
I never thought of SF as a garbage dump, but it's probably because I haven't been where it's bad. Although I thought Chinatown kind of nasty.

LOL, nothing ever changes! I looked at DHTR and saw Farrt Wo posting grey box. He still misses his good buddy. Oh, and I saw Shadow giving Sel crap, like he's got anything to be proud of. They're the worst of the worst.

He stalked me for a couple years then just morphed into a full time socktard.
Sam is "saving" all of Topix from common sense and liberal/fascist/communism/etc. by trolling pretty much everyone, even his own kind. So, sam ol' sam ol'....

Yeah, me too. I emailed the writer and told him good job. I told him it was written with respect and compassion. That had to be a tough story to write. He thanked me for my comments.

What's up? Sel posts on TM 8's thread once in a while. She did this morning. Whatever happened to that dingbat Luke? I don't even remember the thread he used to post on.

Greeting Dem

That sock thing gets really old really fast. It's hard enough keeping track of the newly banned and re- emergent. Then add in the "constantly restless" with their changing aviators. You need to put money on the table if you expect me to keep up with it. What I like about this crew is I've never seen them fight with one another and they all go by one account.

Bad news for Barnes & Noble, according to 24/7 Wall St.:

. Barnes & Noble
> Forecast store closings: 190 to 240, per company comments
> Number of U.S. stores: 689
> One-year stock performance: 8.95%

"The move by customers away from print books toward digital books has hurt Barnes & Noble Inc.(NYSE: BKS). Same-store sales during the nine-week holiday season fell by 8.2% year-over-year. The bookseller has tried to offset the declines in physical book sales with its Nook e-book reader device, but sales of that device fell 13% compared to the previous year. The company already has begun cutting down the number of its stores in the past several years. In a recent interview with the Wall Street Journal, the head of the retail group at Barnes & Noble said he expected the company to have just 450 to 500 retail stores in 10 years."

Other companies were Office Depot and Sears. Also, rumor has it that JC Penny will be closing.

<quoted text>Had a discussion last night about a study I can't cite right now, but dog and cat lovers have very different personalities.
Watched part of a program last night where 5 couples were actually competing to rescue this horrid old Beagle that had been adopted twice and sent back because it was aggressive. I love dogs, but there are limitations. I'm glad there are people out there who will take in these animals, but I'm just not one of them.
I was interested in a Abyssinian cat at our local shelter that I saw on-line, but before the shelter attendant would bring him out for me to see, she told me he'd been returned twice. I responded with "don't bring him out then, because if i see him and think he's beautiful, I won't be able to resist." Now how's that for shallow? but I know what you mean about that instinct some folks have to rescue. Girlfriend in Florida was competing over the adoption of an abused rabbit whose ears had been cut off....and lived in California. I'm not going to stick a needle in her balloon, but holy madonna!

About Richard - did you ever get a private message from him when he was exposing Godsmacked (dumb) as a fraud?

Tell me about it. What happened to the good old days before the bad old days (when cats and women were executed as witches) when cats were associated with books stores and intellect. I demand a cultural recall!! or Caturday VVV

Don't know where Ferrerman is but I can answer this one. Yes, that's Sam. He was also Snuffy-boo boo. I'm sure a lot of people are using the 'Sam' name now that he's grey-boxing. He's found like-minded friends here who share his low IQ and penchant for 6th grade humor.

Yep. Also snabu-something. He claims he's seeking vengeance for ill-treatment of KKKraig, a few years back. He also claims that I personally vanquished his tojours-whatever avatar but, he still uses it so he would appear to be an effing liar.

It seems like anywhere I go in SF all I see is litter and what not. To me it just looks dirty. I just don't see that in Chicago. Maybe the mafia makes sure it's kept clean.

lol...I remember how surprised I was when I adopted Baron. An application packet, for Christ's sake. But once I was approved, they could not WAIT for me to get him out of there. I was a day ahead of a man who wanted my contact info so he could talk me out of Baron.
That was wise of you to pass on that cat. I have one, daughter has one, which equals two too many. Mine is utterly useless but very low maintenance. The other is gorgeous, highly intelligent (he even poses for pics) and an absolute nightmare when he feels wronged. Shredded toilet paper, clawed mattresses, and an 8 x 11" portrait tumbling down the stairs the other night. sigh...
