    The two subsequent posts are more then enough for me. Your own outraged reply gives me the incentive to comment (you don't like "gagging", remember? ). Unless, of course, it's when others don't like YOUR posts. At least try to remain consistent -.-

    Belle, I appreciate your comment. You sound very sensible and you are very sweet. But, my comment was directed to whoever deleted my post in answer to Boxerini's question: "Did I do something wrong?" To which I replied: " Yes, you forgot the ballet shoes and the Tutu!!" Was this rude? It was sarcastic - yes. Rude? NO.
    Yet, if Boxerini saw the YouTube Video posted on another thread on this forum of a dog dancing, you will note that IT IS wearing dancing clothes. I think it was a Mexican costume.. and if you read the comments on that thread, everyone on the forum was laughing.. why is it rude when I say it? I think Choppa even asked her to put some music to help her dog along!?

    Thanks Melba..

    I understand that you were being sarcastic but I don't think that was the mood set in the thread. It was more a serious scene where simply Boxerini wanted to know if she is doing something wrong.

    Why did it all have to go hay-wire between you guys, you could have just simply kept it all in or taken a deep breath and moved on from the thread rather than all this commotion happening - and no I am not taking sides I am just making a few points.

    But yes as Boxerini said, "If you don't like what I am doing, don't comment". It is that simple and if that is what you and perhaps some other people had done, this could have been avoided.

    Belle, great post - very polite and great maturity for a 14 year old.

    You make fun of people who genuinely love and care for their dog(s) by saying they treat them like humans and yet all of you agree that teaching a dog to dance is normal We're in b****y kindergarten here!!
    It's not a good idea to restrict the forum to the over 18s but it is a good idea to have an over 18s section??? WTF?? Where is the logic????
    Sigh. I was having such a good day, too.

    The names of the moderators on this forum are located on the main page. Click on the little doggy in the kennel, and follow the prompts. Having said that, it is also rather visable, as moderator/s do leave a reason as to why a post has been deleted. So, if you saw your post was deleted, you must have read the reason, surely?

    Yes, all members are subject to the Forum Rules. That includes you.
    No, we do not all have to agree with each other. That would be a bit boring, don't you think?
    It is the mentality that comes from the administrator of the Forum. It is mature, sensible and reasonable. I don't think calling the mentality of Administrator or Moderators "sheep" is very constructive now, do you?

    Since Moderators have been reinstated in this Forum...everybody here are subject to censorship...including the Mods. Calling the Mods decisions abhorrent is rude and offensive to be honest.

    You...like everybody else must adhere to the Forum Rules.

    What do you think Boxerini learned from your comment that was deleted...now that you mention the "learning from each other" issue? Nothing except you are willing to mock her in public and disagree with her!

    Your comments (or most of them) since you decided to visit this Forum again...have been crude and aggressive of nature. If you have such strong beliefs regarding this Forum calling it a Kindergarten and a sheep following session...you always have the choice to stop coming here.

    There are ways to say things and ways not to say things...there are times to say things and times to keep our mouth shut.

    At any given time...you are entitled to your opinions as long as the post isn't a personal attack...an attempt to undermine people in public and/or is crude, rude, abusive and offensive. Those are the same rules for every member here...including you.

    Cheers

    How about just before she's about to drop all fours to the ground bring in the lure, if you then get the click timing right she should understand that a full spin is required.

    Provided that your dog has reached maturity, that she displays the behaviour naturally or has the build (light, small, agile) and provided that you don't over over train her there is no harm in these "tricks". (I understand the OP dogs is exactly the right "type")

    One of my Whippets sailed over the entire outdoor setting, length ways including the two chairs at either end, now if he would just stick to begging and spinning I'd be a very happy owner.

    How bloody rude? Time to get off your high horse??

    If it is pointless visiting and you think we are all nasty NASTY dog owners who hate our dogs (except for Aussie Floyd and Hippo of course)...dont let the door hit you in the arse on the way out!

    Regarding your restaurant comment......you could go to a restaurant....treat everybody like they are crap and eventually get kicked out on your arse for your rude, abusive and nasty antics!!!

    Melba, I actually agree with what you're saying. Thanks for leaving!



    ... that is, of course, all I agree with
