    I only popped back to see if Oodles had left me a personal message, as I pmed her to ask her if she had anything, but she hasn't read it or I,ve offended her. It's not a matter of you lot judging me. IMHO (in my HUMBLE opinion, Cavs, hug), if you disagree with me, you are simply wrong. When I am in my rightful state of all powerful, all knowing, the one main Commandment will be BE NICE. It will be NON NEGOTIABLE, and I'll be ALL KNOWING, and I WILL act on breaches, and I'll be smiting, non stop, for quite some time, and the overpopulation problem will be fixed, at the same time.

    I also came back to check if any person had found an answer, here, tho it was unlikely, but I don't know if the dog has 3 days, a week, 2 weeks, or if the RSPCA, at it's cynical best, will geve it more time, because, as an oodle, it shoulld be an easy sale. I don't even know if the dog is in the rspca, the council pound, or the actual name of the holding org.

    The original rehomer seems a kind person and knew and advised of how to help it adjust, in the new home, but she only has an apartment and her dogs are really going it. THAT is what I've got from her, but she is a complete disaster in this emergency. She doesn't answer questions, she seems to be doing useless things, and more than anything, she is desperate to dump the problem, and I never catch her, she just sends hysterical emails. I have seen a photo of the dog, on the internet, but don't ask me where, I have no idea, I'm always losing forever, internet sites that delight me and then are lost to me forever, cos I find them by clicking on different references, so I wander the inernet like a drunken sailor, with no idea of where I went.

    I'll have to post this, or I'll lose this. If I go too long, I lose it all and I have pressed F5 but I still lose lose everything. So you'll have to get a series of answers, like an incontinent granny, to address all points raised.

    Lala, I,m trying to save this dog, besause it's no longer in the sea of unknown tragic stories. I know enough to want to stop the tregedy for this particular dog. Hell, ooodles don't do it for me, and I didn't know what a groodle was... I know now. On a personal level, it is not a dog I'd choose, but I've only chosen one of my dogs, and even then, he was a chosen rescue, and I was hoping someone might actualy know someone or personally want the dog, and bs prepared to work with the problems. I've told her, if she can get the dog out and transport it to me, I'll do my best to send it on as a great dog, to a better home than me, or I will live with it and endeavour to give it the best home I can. I think she may be a pensioner, tho.

    I thought I'd read somewhere that Lala had come here from America, and it explained to me, why she didn't get the deep personal distress at divulging personal details, given many Americans seem to believe that 'reality' show confessions are simply what you do. I didn't do it lightly, or happily. It was a matter of great personal distress but I knew that many people would feel quite entitled to say, you want it saved, save it yourself, and I had to explain why I could not. It probably was the last straw to me holding it together, especially when the cost to me, still didn't help the dog. It was the emotional equivalent, to me, of donating my own kidney to someone, and having someone say, I got a better offer, so we threw that one.

    I have to go out, I can't continue now. I will try to address the chook problem, but it will be really hard from a distance and the other great difficulty, is the dogs have had their attitude to chooks/whatever, not shut down from the start, so they are going to find the new rule, be kind, as confusing, and/or that you aren't serious, or rather, to be taken seriously. I come from the advantage of laying down the NON NEGOTIABLE rules as the dogs arrive. Establishing rules is so much easier, in the first half hour, the first day, that honeymoon period of the first 3ish weeks, that I see Newfsie refer to, over and over again. Once they are well established, and if you are more a friend/mother, than leader, they may well think, let's do it, anyway... She'll have a hissy fit and we'll be okay in a couple of days... Being anthropomorphic, here, to explain to people, the unthinking, in the moment, dog attitude.

    PS I can't find the reference to castaway, I can't remember using it. I'm not in a great state, so it may well be there, I just can't find it.

    You can check when oodle fan was last looking at the forum by

    clicking on her username on her posts.

    or you can click on this link here...
    View Profile: oodle fan - Australian Purebred & Crossbreed Dog Forum

    If you're using a windows machine - you can use the right mouse button ("right click") and choose open in new window - and just close that when you're done checking and the thread you were reading will still be there.

    in the box on the left hand side of the display that comes up, is join date, and last activity which as I write is
    yesterday (22nd May) at 11:21am.

    So they won't have seen anything you sent after that. Well not unless they have PMs (private messages) set to be emailed to them and read them in their email system.

    There's someone else on the forum that has come from America - but Lala isn't her. And I wouldn't generalise about what "Americans" think. Not when you can have Sarah Palin and Woody Allen from the same country and they're both Americans.

    And I wouldn't share personal info in an attempt to justify things. You can just say you feel strongly about it because of your personal history without being specific.

    And I recommend putting Lala on ignore if her posts upset you.
    you can do this by clicking on her user name - and then choosing "add to ignore list" from the left hand box under her user name. You can still read any of her posts you want, by clicking "view post" but that will remind you to brace yourself and not take what she writes personally. She does tend to be blunt, direct, inconsiderate and sometimes posts based on insufficient information. But that doesn't mean you have to supply the extra info to help her feel better about you. You really don't have any control over what she thinks so it might not help anyway.

    Some people like blunt and direct. Personally I don't like having to tippy toe around people's feelings which are often completely unpredictable to me. So I can seem blunt and direct too.

    But a lot of Lala's posts annoy me too, until I remind myself - she's not being nasty or personal about it. It's the way she is, insensitive. Some other people are at the other end of posting style and they can be over sensitive - and we can't take over-reactions personally either. We mods just edit both for abuse as required. And it helps if these posts get reported because we don't always spot them without help.

    The report button is the little black triangle with a white ! in it. Click on that and write why you think the moderators should do something about it or be aware of it...
