    Hi Keu13...have a look at this thread. It has some great links in it for a bloat chart. I get a bit sick of the blunt posts too. I think they get a ego trip out of it.

    its just that help is better received when it sounds like help and not like condescension or rude demands
    Some of us just say what we think - unvarnished and un prettied up with polite words - especially if we don't have much time or we think there is some immediate danger (eg puppy getting bloat from bad feeding practices). I'm always offending people by the way I post - but it's really their choice to read the post as offensive. I don't usually intend it that way.

    Some of the things the regulars find offensive - that newbies to dog care wouldn't know about - are things like
    - buying from a pet shop or puppy mill...
    - not getting any vet care when the puppy needs it. This may or may not include getting vaccinations an flea management
    - allowing dogs that don't come when called - off lead - to go barging up to dogs or people that are hurt by it (old people, toddlers, people with their hands full, small dogs, old dogs, fearful dogs etc). Lab owners are notorious for this - but I know you will make sure your lab has permission before he greets anyone or dog or creature.
    - not cleaning up after dog or children - not noticing dog crapping cos not watching - getting defensive if someone else asks you to pick up and offers to help you find it - most all of us have been distracted at jut the wrong time - even when the dog is on lead. Some people are grateful for the help - and some people get nasty...

    So rudeness is in the eye of the beholder. I am not likely to remember that you're a bit sensitive. So I and probably nekhbet and a few others on here are likely to make blunt posts. I recommend thinking - do we mean well - at least for your dog - before posting your upset. It would be nice if we could all remember what each member thinks is rude and accomodate them - but I find that too hard.

    i am in mildura i dont think there are heaps around here but as soon as i find a good one i will be on the waiting list! i really should have been taking my foxie already she is so full of beans! she would be great at something that really tested us, not just walks and mucking about all the time :P

    This is a great forum and i have really appreciated the advice i have gotten, thanks for explaining yourself and talking to me about it that is very nice of you. i just hope that others talk it out instead of getting offended and leaving the forum and missing out on even having their questions answered and receiving the help they were looking for as for myself i will try to be less sensitive, i will just talk out loud instead of typing :P
