    My dog is a great one for putting her paws up on the counter to talk to the vet too. And at one vet with the bench seats - we both sit on the bench and lean against each other - helps me calm down.

    At the other vet - we've only sat on the seat in the consult room - haven't spent a lot of time in their waiting room - it's a bit squishy in there. The whole consult was done while she was on their chair so I'm guessing they're not that bothered by it.
    I wanted to let as many people as possible know what happened to me and get their opinions...as I don't see anything wrong with my dog sitting next to me because it's not a doctors surgery and there are plenty of seats...unfortunately on the dark side there are a lot of A-holes.

    'Dogman' - why are you saying that there are a lot of A/Holes on the other forum ?
    Because they didn't all agree with you and give you heaps of sympathy and hugs ! smiley-laughing024.gif

    Are you serious... this is your only contribution to this thread A-holes are everywhere aren't they. Wasn't sympathy I was after...maybe you should read this thread again but this time slowly.

    A-holes are everywhere aren't they.
    There certainly are. But one of the things I like about this forum is there is diversity of opinions. We do have slightly different rules to the dark side - ie we'd rather someone gets a pedigree or working line dog from a responsible breeder but we're not going to ban them if they talk about their "cockapoo" pet shop special either. We're more into "educating". Which means a diversity of opinions.

    You and I might not have any problem with clean dogs on seats at the vet - but lots of people feel the same way about that as I do about cats on the kitchen table during food prep. And the world and internet forums would be boring if we all thought the same about everything.

    I don't feel so righteous about it to argue with someone who gets freaked out by it. I'd put my dog on the floor if they asked nicely and kept their aggressive SWF away from my dog.

    PS - a lot of members here are also members and readers of the dark side... saying that the dark side has a lot of a-holes (or people who strongly disagree with you) - people here might think you mean them. And people who are good with animals (specifically dogs) often aren't so good with people - eg subtle as a sledge hammer in expressing their opinions.

    I just had a look at 'the dark side' forum for the first time, since it keeps on creeping up here in various threats. Well. It's really interesting how different the opinions and the tone is in this and that forum. I'd love to see a comparison of the members average age here and there.

    threat? you meant thread? yes?

    I think that maybe - just maybe - there are more young members in here. It's possible we're nicer to newbies. I hope so.

    I think we are definitely nicer to newbies here than the other forum!! I've never really felt included in that forum even though i do post in particular sections regularly. Compare that to this forum, I felt welcome as soon as I arrived, and even though there are the occasional arguments, i always still feel welcome here.

    Entertaining thread
    I haven't felt as welcome on any forum as much as I have here
    Even after asking repetitive and stupid questions everyone is genuinely interested and helpful
    It's a nice change... I tell you what, some of the old grumps on the gardening forums... don't ask for tips about their tomatoes!

    This forum is certainly much more friendly...at least you don't get death threats here. Yes I know I shouldn't react to stupid comments from people who have nothing better to do...I'll learn one day...as for the dark side it's not the dark side for nothing.
