RE: How many RVers does it take to change a light bulb?

What's the best tires to put on an RV with a new light bulb?

RE: Little Dogs

when you've got more dogs than you have people, then it becomes very difficult.Not very difficult to do; it just takes effort on the owner's part. Dogs don't learn "house rules" and "manners" with the owner sitting on the couch watching TV. I also think you have to know when to throw in the towel. Proper dog ownership is not guaranteed simply because you have acquired a dog. Some people are just not mentally equipped to own a dog. Just as some people are never able to become competent drivers, parents, cooks, guitar players, etc. It's a wise person that knows their limitations.

RE: Drone deliveries and dogs

The OP was specifically referencing Amazon package deliveries. However, I think that going back to the invention of cameras/movie cameras-people will come up with ways to catch images, that they've always wanted to see, but until drones, were unable to. It'll be a matter of First Amendment rights vs. personal rights. I think drones will open up opportunities for people to train falcons, or teach boomerang classes.

RE: Drone deliveries and dogs

My dogs would think it was either an airborne toy, (Frisbee/ ball), or a slow moving bird. Either way-they would not understand that it's delivering a package from Amazon, (or wherever). It would not be a pretty outcome.

Drone deliveries and dogs

Dog Owners: A show of hands, please- if you know exactly what would happen if a drone landed on your property. I tend to see a problem, (and a mangled drone).

RE: I am getting frustrated!!

I'm going with my personal experience. The Alpha theory is not cr*p. Anyone that believes so , has never been able to master it. I've left two females home alone, ( a pit bull and a mastiff; a GSD and a Maltese). Ive worked 12 hour shifts. No crates, no separate rooms. They were asleep back to back when I left, same position when I returned. And, yes. I would NOT ever own a dangerous dog. I don't care if the dog was abused or not. If a dog has bitten or is likely to bite in certain situations. No thanks. There are other dogs more deserving of a good home without endangering the public. I'm not speaking of special medical needs. I'm referring to extreme, potentially dangerous behaviors. I've dealt with plenty of blind, deaf, lame etc. It's not right to own a dog that cannot be controlled. Just because someone has owned many dogs, does not necessarily make them an expert.

RE: Bread machine

...plus it is cheap to make.... Several years ago, I did the math on the cost of a homemade loaf (large loaf) of bread, including the cost of electricity to bake it. (I did not consider cost of loaf pans or any other equipment) I was using my Kitchen Aid Mixer to knead the loaf. Cost was $0.50 per loaf. Can't beat that! I now need to figure out how much it costs me to make 2 medium pizzas (that's 1 recipe of dough) with cheese & sausage... I can tell you the cost of making your pizza vs. delivery/frozen will be HUGE!

RE: I am getting frustrated!!

Haven't ruled out a male but frankly thought the "alfa" would be more in female to male than female/female. No, not at all. In general a male/female will get along much better than female/female. I've had three females before. There's no way on earth I'd do that again. Ever. I've had owned several females at a time, males and mixed sexes. You should be the only Alpha in the house. Then, they follow your lead.

RE: I am getting frustrated!!

Some of these criteria are out there. One acre of 6ft fenced property per dog? No females to existing female adoptions? No adoptions to homes with children under 12? One-pet homes, only? The shelter that I volunteer at, have had dogs for over a year, because no one could meet the criteria. I don't agree with that. Not everyone is dog-ignorant. In some instances, exceptions should be made. If the dog is so unadoptable because of behavior problems-someone should make the tough decision.

RE: Vintage cigarette advertising...

I remember well, having grown up in Pittsburgh. There was a gigantic Marlboro billboard at the Liberty Bridge. There are so many bridges in Pittsburgh, that when we gave directions we would say, 'look for the bridge with the Marlboro sign'. I loved the music they used on their TV ads.

RE: I am getting frustrated!!

My 2 cents: I have owned dogs all my life. Worked as a vet tech, and volunteer at a large, animal shelter. First off, indeed, some of the people that get into animal rescue work are, 'over-the-top' militant. There is only a special few, fit to adopt one of 'their' dogs. At my shelter: they are sneaky when they get a litter of pups. The small-breed pups usually never make it to the adoption floor. They are adopted by shelter employees and their friends. The pit bull mixes go out on the floor. I, personally have a shelter pittie and she's one of the best dogs, ever. But, they are not everyone's cup of tea. As much as anyone at the shelter would keel over, if they heard me say this: There is nothing wrong with getting a pup from a quality breeder. Find a good breeder. See the parents, before the litter is conceived. See the pups as they grow to adoption age. Choose the pup, based on the parent's, temperament/health, the pup's hierarchy in the litter, (the Alpha pup may be too headstrong), and results of previous litters with these two parents. This is going to a member of your family for a long time. It's important to know everything you can about the pup. I know all about the, 'For every dog purchased, a dog is euthanized' credo. Plenty of people that would give a dog a great home, are turned down by shelters/rescues because of the strict rules. There is still a place for conscientious breeders.

RE: Bread machine

Bread machines are a lot of fun. I used one for many years. Now, I have a sourdough starter,(Little Cesar) and I make Artisan loaves. I have one proofing right now. Starters can get lazy in cold weather-and sometimes Cesar calls the shots. Anyhow, FYI-if you don't want to use the machine, and you don't want to bother with a starter-you just want easy, homemade bread. Here's a nice no-knead video. No knead bread in a loaf pan

RE: dog food

Cut down on the amount of food, and increase the exercise.

RE: hello from S.A

Thanks for posting that wonderful photo. The 'Wees' always make me smile. I loved the story about the vet getting one-eyed Chihuahuas mixed up! I hope everything goes smoothly with the house, and your family is safely reunited! Keep posting-love the updates!

Tip for Super Dave

I enjoy reading your 'smoking' posts. Might I suggest, if you haven't already tried it- Next time you have the smoker going-try smoking your own salts and herbs. I've done it with kosher salt and Tellicherry peppercorns. I just put them in an aluminum pie plate and shake them every few minutes. It doesn't take very long, maybe 15 minutes. Then, I put them in a mill to use them. Interesting flavor!

RE: Do You Get Your Dogs' Teeth Cleaned?

Vet must have a car payment coming up. I've never had a dog's or cat's teeth cleaned. That's not offensive or anything. Makes me wonder what kind of a pet owner you are.

RE: Do You Get Your Dogs' Teeth Cleaned?

Vets have told me that bacteria from gum disease and infected teeth will get in the blood stream and lodge in the pet's heart, causing heart disease. In fact, the same thing can happen to people who neglect their teeth. We've had our dogs' and cat's teeth cleaned for years, and I've brushed them daily myself as just part of grooming. It's no big deal as I have a plastic fingertip scrubber that I put the dog toothpaste on. It's a chicken flavor they like and they look forward to it. We just do this while we're watching TV in the evening. I had a dog die from this. The vet had even put her on pre-cleaning antibiotics, but she developed endocarditis after the cleaning. It's true that it can happen in humans, too. I use the plastic finger cots, now. They have dog-flavored toothpaste-but I just use warm water.

RE: need advice on older dog...

I have had dogs all of my life, so I've dealt with elderly dogs. I have and will tolerate incontinence, mobility problems, dietary changes, etc. I would not tolerate a dog with unprovoked biting. If everything medical is ruled out and it is deemed a behavior problem-I would not keep an unpredictable, dangerous animal.
