It would appear that my joining this forum has put some noses out of joint. I make no apology for the way I joined the forum, as I was trying to keep this as a separate issue.
It was never my intention, as I said in my Introduction thread, that I was not joining to upstage GSDs or interfere with any established relationships already developed.
I am a fellow dog lover and trainer. I don't know and don't care to know what was discussed over Christmas, I will leave that to be between the individuals involved. Yes, GSDs and I are having some issues in our relationship currently. Neither of us know where that will take us going forward, but if we are to have any chance of getting things back together, then that is something which we will have to deal with ourselves and see where we end up.
I have no issue with people continuing to support GSDs, in fact I am happy that you do. I also don't expect anyone to take my side, as there shouldn't be any sides to take.
GSDs was not worried about me joining the forum, as exhibited by her also posting on my Intro thread, so it shouldn't be an issue for others. GSDs is a strong woman and would have told me if she did not want me to join, we never anticipated any such reaction.
So we are trying to work things out, this we will generally keep private, but every now and then, if GSDs needs to vent and she does it on the thread, then she would like it to be as before I joined, with people supporting her without judgment, but just be a sounding board and a listening ear.
Hopefully we can all play nicely and maturely on this forum and I don't have to get this serious again, as I much prefer the light hearted banter that the Intro thread started out as.
Here endeth the rant, now lets get back to the humour.
