there's no shows, the weather's crappy, and the tree is especially small this year.

and i can't take the commute anymore.

oh, if you must come, be sure to take the express lanes of I-80 into the GW bridge.
Okay, bucky. I'll stay away this holiday season. Your plea worked. Oh, wait, I wasn't going to visit New York anyway.

expatgirl, he ate the back of my shoe last night. DH got them for our anniv. as I wanted nothing else but a nice pair of leather slid-ons. Now one is nice, the other... Anyone want a slightly used doggie??

TanyaK, I have no plants left, nothing is going to survive; let lone me, if something doesn't change soon! I don't think I have anymore tears left either. My head hurts. My son doesn't want to try a muzzle at all, has anyone?

Dawn,
I am a dog lover but, I firmly believe you cannot love a dog that misbehaves. The dog needs schooling and so does your son..If he has a pet, then he cares for it...Not just feeding and watering but getting it to obedience school and making it behave at home...All pups chew that is a given, if the dog is that destructive then he needs to be crated when there is nobody to watch him. If one of my kids did this I'd put up with it for a time, but then there would be, do something now today or find the pooch a good home some place else or outside.I know it's hard to jump on our kids, but, I think you've put up with enough.

Some advice-------- get the shoe that survived the shark attack and whack your son until he promises to supervise his dog. :)

Well said. And the dog will probably be happier also! Sorry about what you're going through, Dawn.

Watch some dog whisperer episodes. I'm not sure I agree with his psychology of the dog mind, but he says dogs, like children, need to know what is acceptable and what isn't and firm, consistent discipline. I absolutely believe in crates for dogs that cannot be trusted on their own. If you learn how to do it, you can train your dog(s) in a relatively short period of time and they will be a pleasure instead of a pain. But I feel your pain, girlfriend - how do you think I learned this? lol

Send a message via Yahoo to Barb L.
Dawn, your dog sounds as if he needs to run, he has too much pent up puppy energy. Think he needs something to release it all, probably bored . (out on a farm) ! I don't have any patience with any misbehaving,- animal or human -

Dog from H***

Thanks to you all!! My DH bought another pair of shoes last night, and I felt really great leaving the store after the clerk told the grandchildren that "You are lucky, my mommy and daddy wouldn't buy me anything so close to Christmas." Tommy told her that we were Gramma and Papa and you could have fried an egg off the heat from her face! As to the dog from H***, DS is now looking into training for doggie dearest, a crate the size of Texas, and has to pay DH back for my shoes. Hows that for an ultimatum Kadesma?!? I didn't even have to whack him with the shoe either, expatgirl. Thanks for your sympathy Loprraine. I have heard of the Dog whisperer, Fisher's Mom and will try to watch it some evening. Thanks. Barb L, as for him having enough room to run, he is outside everyday. We (dog and I) play soccer with the dalmation in the back field and they are on the invisible fence collars with 5 acres. I'm still going crazy, just a little slower today!! DawnT
