    Somehow this thread turned from Angela being crapped off at idiot dog owners to All-About-Amy. Lol. And it wasn't ME going off-topic for once! Yippee!!!

    Angela, the world is full of morons. Lately I'm beginning to wonder if the morons are outweighing the intelligent ones? Sigh.

    It is infuriating, I know, dealing with these idiots on a daily basis. Why do you think I'm so effing jaded???

    But at least every (well most anyway) new person who joins this forum has a chance to become more educated, more responsible, more knowledgable and overall a better owner. At least that's something to help us feel better after seeing all the morons out there.

    I think it was a combination of idiot dog owners and idiots in general

    I had 'words' with my neighbours with the black sheppie. It came down to me telling him that if I ever saw Bear out again he would be caught, held in my yard and the council would be collecting him. Unfortunately he would be pts if they collected him.

    And this is something I am incredibly grateful for. Thankfully the majority of the people here want to learn and want to do the best they can for their animals.

    Still can't believe the hide of the other next door neighbours. Guess what, I own a cat now... Poor Bobby, he's such a sweetheart too, still he now has a home where he can cuddle up on the bed with his humans, guaranteed meals, is protected indoors and lots of pats, cuddles and conversations. I think he's pretty lucky! I'll be letting him outside during the day, but he stays here in our yard anyway so that's not a biggie and he will be indoors here at night like he has always been. Not much is really changing except I'm now buying his food and litter!

    Eating grass is normal, all dogs do it when they have an upset tummy and some just like the taste and it has no effect on them. Keep a bit of an eye on her for a while to make sure she's not going to throw up from it, but don't panic it's how they settle their stomachs - almost like us having peppermint or chamomile tea.
    Excellent! Thanks! Does that mean she has an upset tummy? Or is she just being as puppy and chewing on the grass coz she can?

    I don't know your puppy at all so I really couldn't say. It could be either, but if she does have an upset tummy you'll know about it within around 2 hours (at the very outside) as she will throw up and/or have the runs. If she has very very watery runs that are just liquid for more than around 12 hours get her to the vet asap as they dehydrate very quickly.

    Here's a good site to read through to explain the severity of the poops:

    Sorry DA, you're still not escaping

    Mongrel neighbours regarding the cat. He'll be better off, but you know that, and something tells me so do the neighbours. Still mongrels though.

    Re Bear - yeah, that's one dangerous situation to have a Shepherd in the hands of idiots like that. Oh my oh my...and they wonder why dogs start attacking ppl????????????????????

    The thing is he shouldn't be dangerous! I've come across him a few times and he doesn't scare me, while he's barking and carrying on his tail is wagging and he's bowing to try and play, but he likes to chase and people are intimidated by him mostly. They run so he chases. I stand still and he'll come up and let me pat him, but I'd never completely trust him unless I had been working with him daily for a few years I think. I do know he's bitten before, one of the ladies who lives further down the street was a victim of him and that's why he's registered as dangerous. Argh, complicated much?

    I hope the neighbours realise that. Off to get him some food tonight now too. He had some chicken mince and a chicken wing with Batty this morning and was a very happy chappy He's a pretty awesome cat, he sits when you ask him to and he begs for food too (I discourage it, but he just does it most of the time).

She talked about genetic problems that occur with the breed and said that the vet had checked for these and found none. She didn't do everything on your list but she did some. This women was crying as we drove away she honestly loved the puppies she had hand raised.

    I took the info I was given here into consideration and honestly thought I was doing the right thing!





    That is what I am trying to explain though! I am posting here to make sure I do the best for my puppy! But its not so easy to just look past the personal stuff! Some of the things said on here have made me feel sick to my stomach, literally, I have had those horrible butterfly want to throw up feelings of guilt!

    I worry that the vet I go to will not be the best one in my city. I worry that this will impact on the care my pup recieves. I want the BEST for her! I am not an irresponsible owner!
    Amy, I reiterate what GAG has said. Rescue has certainly opened my eyes too! Like GAG 10 yrs ago, my limited experience and views were nothing short of naieve. And I have the issues to prove it!! SWF that was treated as a child and who now at 9 yrs has major dominance issues. I do what I can with the knowledge I now have but frankly the damage is well ingrained and truly, given the length of time this has gone on for little will change for this old boy. Bottom line, my fault, my responsibilty, my issue.

    And then there is Bella my beautiful little brown staffy who I purchased from a BYB, whom I have no doubt now falls into the catagory of puppy farmer! Again, I have issues, this time being the epilepsy. My responsibility, my issue, my own stupid mistake to purchase her from where I did so. (But Bubba - I wouldn't swap you for the world)!!

    What I have learnt is that in future of the pups or dogs I keep (remembering that I have a lot of dogs pass through my hands due to rescue) I will NEVER keep a dog in future whose lines I can not trace right back. I have already put my hand up for one of Clea's (Ruby's) pups, given I am 100% confident of her breeding, and Ruby is only 8-9 months at this time, meaning I will happily wait the 3 yrs to ensure my next stafford is one of utmost quality, and from a breeder I trust completely.

    So learn, learn, learn. Ask, ask, ask and as you grow, so with your "thick" skin and you will learn to see past any personal issues. You are the same ageish as my 4 kids, and I am constantly telling them, it's OK as you gain years, your will also gain experience and understanding.

    Finally, if you are unsure of your vet....SHOP AROUND!!!! I did! It took me 5 vets in about 6 months to find the one perfect for me whom I have total faith in, and you MUST have total faith in your vet, afterall he is your pups "specialist carer"

    Let your fingers do the walking. Have a list of questions at hand. Be comfortable and confident with whom your choose.

    On the other side their untrained, unsocialised German Shepherd (who is gorgeous to those who are brave enough to stand their ground and vicious to those who run) was allowed to take himself for a walk this morning. He is registered as a dangerous dog and they don't bother with any of the restrictions he's supposed to have because 'he knows who to bite and who not to'.

    I am just sick of it.

    Next time you see them out call the council immediately and take lots of photos. With photos and hopefully the council picking them up they will be removed from his care.
