You wouldn't want to be seen around an ol' animal abuser like me, would you? Word would get out, and then, who knows...

Words already out Jack due to the training I took Blade to last week. I am sure Chris has read that and cringed, as has several others who feel I am using a torture device.
Isn't it funny how happy my dogs are? And funny they even seem happier than ever before. They aren't as stressed.
Well off to harm my dogs. Like I said can I join you?

Gwen
Umm, AKC exams? Debbie

To be a CGC evacuator. Quite simple, really' they only require ample experience with dogs. I don't understand the controversy into which I have fallen: I absorbed it at my mother's tit: "You must never harm animals." Why is that so difficult to understand?

They don't really require much of anything. You fill out a form. You send it in. There is no "test," so the word exam is very incorrect. To become a CGC evaluator you need to have the following (quoted from the AKC site):
1. worked with other dog owners and their dogs for at least 1 year
2. experience with a variety of breeds
3. good standing with AKC (i.e., not suspended) and
4. no history of felony convictions.

Sorry, but that's not "ample experience" nor is it an "exam."

It's not difficult to understand not wanting to harm animals. It's projecting YOUR version of what YOU constitute harm onto everyone else, making moral judgments, and even worse, being gloating and gleeful over the prospect of pain and harm coming humans who cross your personal warped view of what you consider "harm" to animals.

What disturbs me about your posts is that you actually demonstrate a deep and fundamental MISunderstanding of how the canine mind works, painting them with your own emotional and anthropomorphic wishes of what you think they should be, instead of understanding what they really are.
What's going on in the Middle East has nothing to do with land. It has to do with anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism. Not to mention low self-esteem, jealousy, etc.

My step-father's (and therefor my brother's and my sister's) family in Palestine aren't anti-semitic. They just want to live in peace where their ancestors have lived for millennia, grow olives, work and play and raise families like other human beings. They don't support the extremists on either side. Get a grip. And no, they're not in the minority, but that's what you'd be led to think watching US news reports, I admit. Katrina

Thanks Katrina for this message.

The fact that the NA was here WAY before any white settlers. Only fact though.

Unfortunately, REAL LIFE isn't played like a game of musical chairs.

Which is exactly my point!

Well I missed the point, please forgive me.

You are, of course, forgiven.
In fact, I've saved up a whole reservoir of forgiveness, just for folks like you, Gwen.

Do you understand the difference?

Indeed, now that it is laid on the table like that. Yep, I do.

And I'm not exactly known for my subtlety, am I?

Stick around, kiddo, you'll likely hear a lot of things you've never heard before.

Some very good things some eye opening as well. I guess you got me on this one.

Think nothing of it.
Stop IDEALIZING native Americans, Gwen. We're all just human beings, ... But I just don't understand self-loathing, and I never will.

Self-loathing? I don't quite understand. But I am not idealizing either.

For some strange reason, Gwen, you seem to automatically think poorly of your own people.
I think they got a raw deal and so do many who have NA ancestors. But apparently it matters not.

Gwen, I have native American ancestors myself.
Yet I still retain possession of my scalp.
Go figure.

You're sounding more and more like Chris, Gwen. I.e., unhinged.

Over something this minor? I think you are stretching it into something way bigger then I feel about it, because "you can".

**Bingo!

At least make damn sure that what you're disturbed about is worth getting disturbed about.

Says who? Are you a dictator? Facist? Says who? If I want to get disturbed and voice it now and then I have that right.

Absolutely! And then I have the very same right to call you on it, too!
But now you're sounding a lot like Michael Moore. Emotion: sad

See: **Bingo! above, and because I can.
You have the right to correct me as do others such as Shelly. But to say it best be something I am sure it is worth being disturbed about is not only fruitless but insensitive to ones feelings and on opinions.

All that would matter, maybe, to someone who cared.

But I'm not one of them.
The Internet isn't the place for sensitive people.

Try Southern California.

Words already out Jack due to the training I took Blade to last week. I am sure Chris has read that and cringed, as has several others who feel I am using a torture device.

Then let's just keep it our little secret, okay?
Chris is unhinged enough already!

Only if you promise not to sound like Michael Moore?

And I want it in writing.

I think it is out though but fair enough.

OK I will try but you know us liberals can be?
