Janet, you might want to ask her another question. HOW MUCH DOES HER DOG WEIGH? My guess is: 2,678 pounds, in his stocking feet.

You may be about 2580 too much, but yeah.....

Then in another 20-25 pounds, he might not be so "sedentary."

Or "bored."

Obsession: Radical Islam’s War with the West (a must-see movie!): http://www.obsessionthemovie.com /
If you don't want your own DVD, you can view the movie here:

It's over an hour long, so make some popcorn, crack open a beer, and take a good, hard look at what's coming.

Or...you can keep your head stuck in the sand.
It used to be anything the GR wanted to do, walk in the hills play fetch, whatever. Now, if I throw a ball, he will ignore it, choosing to wander about at a somewhat lackluster pace. He'll wander until I get bored and sedentary.

The only GRs I know that act like this are 10 or 12 years old. Or seriously overweight. And even they manage some bursts of 'Hey, look at me! Pet me!'.
Don't let your dog just wander about. Actively engage him and do stuff with him. Get him back into obedience/agility classes, play games with him that require him to think, make him work for everything he wants. This dog sounds bored out of his skull, quite frankly.
Your BC puppy is also going to need some serious physical and mental stimulation. A young dog who is active and smart can get into a world of trouble. You might as well get her started on some of these activities as well.

Not knowing the tru intent of the questioner.

Question: What did you think my intent was, by asking a lot of questions, if it wasn't to get enough information from you in order to give you some good advice?

I had insufficient information to make that determination. I still don't. Your penchant for exercizing your first amendment rights in a flamboyant manner made, and still makes me suspicous. While the first amendment gives you the right to express yourself, I have always been skeptical of those who inject politics into areas where it isn't pertinent. That is, unless you think my dog gives a damn about the Middle East. Because, if that is the problem, I will surely turn CNN on right now, so he will feel involved.
Question: When your doctor asks you a lot of questions, do you generally give him as much *** as you've been giving me?

Only when her questions involve asking if I want services that mostly benfit her ability to make the payments on her Mercedes.
Question: How many doctors do you go through, say, in a years time?

I've had the same vet for 3-1/2 years. Before we moved, I had the same vet for 10 years, before that for 5. And this has something to do with??
None of your business.

Question: Should I take that response to mean yes, you have been arrested?

You may take that response any way you wish. Just remember what the word assume really means.
Only from people who "think" they know all the answers.

Question: Do you know the difference between an answer an a question?

More than you could possibly understnd.
Question: How do you know that I don't have all the answers, and that I'm not willing to share them with you, if you'll just answer a few freakin' questions?

If you want to play alpha male, be my guest. I don't have time for that kind of crap.
When the questions are pertinent, I answer them.

Question: How exactly is someone like you able to determine if questions are pertinent?

Since you don't know my background, please operationally define, "someone like you".

Presumption of sanity. I may have been wrong about you.
Define reality.

Question: Have you ever heard of the term "that's an inside joke"?

I have a limited sense of humor.
While the first amendment gives you the right to express yourself,

MM, nope. The first amendment says that the federal government can't shut you up. Your ability to express yourself on Usenet has more to do with your service provider's terms of service.

Bad policies lead to bad results.
I had insufficient information to make that determination. I still don't.

Exactly. And yet you want us to help you.
(Snip a whole bunch of stuff that is not related to your dog or the problems you're having. Why are you here?)

Question: What did you think my intent was, by asking ... from you in order to give you some good advice?

I had insufficient information to make that determination. I still don't.

Question: How much information from people do you need before you allow them to help you? You know, roughly.
Your penchant for exercizing your first amendment rights in a flamboyant manner made, and still makes me suspicous.

Question: Do you generally bite the hand that is trying to feed you?

Question: Do you generally have trouble confusing curiosity with flamboyance?
While the first amendment gives you the right to express yourself, I have always been skeptical of those who inject politics into areas where it isn't pertinent.

Question: Do you want help, or do you just want to pontificate?
That is, unless you think my dog gives a damn about the Middle East.

Question: What makes your dog smarter than you appear to be?
Because, if that is the problem, I will surely turn CNN on right now, so he will feel involved.

Question: Do you ever watch the National Geographic channel?

Question: Have you ever heard of the Dog Whisperer?

Question: Do you think you'll learn more about dogs watching CNN or the Dog Whisperer?
Question: When your doctor asks you a lot of questions, do you generally give him as much *** as you've been giving me?

Only when her questions involve asking if I want services that mostly benfit her ability to make the payments on her Mercedes.

Question: Do you generally avoid taking responsibility for your actions and behavior, or is this a relatively new behavior?
Question: How many doctors do you go through, say, in a years time?

I've had the same vet for 3-1/2 years. Before we moved, I had the same vet for 10 years, before that for 5. And this has something to do with?????

Question: Do you always ask such stupid questions?

Question: Really?
Question: Should I take that response to mean yes, you have been arrested?

You may take that response any way you wish. Just remember what the word assume really means.

Question: Then I shall assume that you have been arrested, okay?
Question: Do you know the difference between an answer an a question?

More than you could possibly understnd.

Question: How were you able to determine my capacity for understanding?
Question: And did it entail the use of an electrical device of some kind?
Question: How do you know that I don't have all ... with you, if you'll just answer a few freakin' questions?

If you want to play alpha male, be my guest. I don't have time for that kind of crap.

Question: If you don't have time for this crap, why should anyone else?
Question: Are you always this self-absorbed?
()
Question: How exactly is someone like you able to determine if questions are pertinent?

Since you don't know my background, please operationally define, "someone like you".

Question: Why is that I already know you better than you seem to know yourself?
Question: When was the last time anyone helped you when you weren't being cooperative and/or forthcoming?

It happens quite frequently aside from usenet newsgroups.

Question: Which universe (other than this one) do you normally inhabit?
Question: Do you really know the difference between hard work and luck?

Since you know nothing about me, my answer would be meaningless to you.

Question: What makes you think that anyone would want to know more about you, after your less that illustrious entrance?
Question: What makes you think that running into me wasn't a stroke of genius?

The fact that we are playing this meaningless mid game proves it.

Question: What convinces you that it's meaningless?
Question: What was it that made you think I wouldn't?

Presumption of sanity. I may have been wrong about you.

Question: What makes you qualified to judge someone's sanity, but not qualified to determine why your own dog is "sedentary" and "bored" at the young age of 4.5 years?
Question: Do you think you should ever have children?
Question: Have you ever heard of the term "that's an inside joke"?

I have a limited sense of humor.

Question: Do you realize that the word nonexistent isn't a synonym for limited?
Question: Am I correct then to assume that you're not as dumb as you seem?

When did you stop beating your wife?

Question: You really don't want to be helped, do you?

To get suggestions for solving a problem. Not to be lectured, interrogated, or be engaged in some meaningless mind game. These tactics might or might not work on dogs, not people.
If anyone wants to provide any information that will help, I will appreciate it. If I have to jump through hoops to get a straight answer, I will find information elsewhere from people who genuinely want to help, not the self-appointed and self-anointed.
