    Not a shelter, or an accident that happened prior to de-sexing - a breeder??????????

    How do you deal with these people day in and day out? Take big breaths, swear under your breath? Or smack your head against the wall on the way home each night?
    Yaha, purposely

    Oh trust me DA, it isn't easy.
    Lots of clenched fists and lip biting.

    My days of clenched fists and lip-biting at the moronic idiots that come into surgery's for help and assistance, yet it all goes in one ear and out the other, are over.

    Yours obviously aren't, and I KNOW it's not easy. But by golly the beautiful dogs and the beautiful owners make up for the other ones IMO.

    You used to work in a vet DA!?
    I used to attempt to educate, but I gave up. If the people seem genuinly interested I'll 'discuss' with them

    Yes, Aussiemyf. I was younger and wasn't so jaded back then. The end came for me when I assisted in the euthanasia of a beautiful Shepherd who was covered in maggots from having an owner who failed to act on her illness. That owner was a very well-known and highly respected member of the community. Pffft. Areseholes come in all walks of life, rich or poor. As I say, I've been jaded ever since.

    I know, Myf!!! I hold most veterianarians and their nurses in the highest regard, because I personally KNOW how hard it is, how thankless it is, and how frustrating it is to deal with some owners. They literally kill their dogs because they won't listen to advice, even when they've asked for it, sometimes.

    I'm the same, don't ruddy well get me going on that!

    Hi DA

    If it makes you feel any better, humans aren't much better at following doctors advice about looking after their own health. I heard a statistic that suggested that only 10% of heart bypass patients are able to make the lifestyle changes necessary to prevent further heart problems. 90% continue their deadly lifestyle and die prematurely.

    Vague guess at translating Malinois-72's post.
    "No sugar!!! " - don't make what you're trying to say "sweet", just say what needs to be said.

    "Tell her what you think DA! " - needs no translation

    "It may save B/S in the future!" - save bull faeces or fuss or trouble in the future.

    Ie tell it like it is now, and save yourself from hassle later.

    Oh der Hyacinth!!! I'm so embarrased. Think I must have been tired too! When I read Mal's post, I thought he meant what I had been saying to Myf. I thought WTF is he talking about?

    How stupid of me, was off on another tangent I think.

    Yeah, I guess humans are just as bad with their own bodies and health sometimes.
