What's on your mind?
walkingdecay: You may have been misled by my link to Humble, which wasn't an ad but a pointer to a charity bundle which may be of interest to members who are into art or need a video editor. Nov 29, 2019 8:18:44 GMT
geddarby: Very grumpy today! Some bastard let their dog crap on the outside doormat . Didn’t notice it until I had walked all over the hall carpet. Not a good start to the morning. Nov 29, 2019 10:13:12 GMT *
walkingdecay: Wasn't me. Or my dogs. Nov 29, 2019 13:36:30 GMT
minorkey: Don't you just hate shog dit! Nov 29, 2019 19:25:08 GMT
trevboy50: Thanks walkingdecay for the info no probs i Nov 30, 2019 0:01:33 GMT
trevboy50: thanks walkingdecay for the info I'll abide as necessary .. Nov 30, 2019 0:06:07 GMT
walkingdecay: The cue words for our dogs to let go are, "Go Yoko." This often puzzles owners whose dogs have been to us for training, but I like to think they are carrying on the tradition. Nov 30, 2019 12:32:48 GMT
robmc: My cue words are "give me the bloody ball you little sod" (rofl) Dec 1, 2019 22:47:15 GMT
walkingdecay: Hah! That wouldn't work with our akitas anyway, because of one of the breed's weird characteristics is that they won't fetch. They'll invent all sorts of ball games to play solo but expect them to retrieve and they'll give you a look that says, "Why?" Dec 2, 2019 8:56:18 GMT
curmudgeon: Tomorrow our neighbours finally leave! Whoopee! And taking their West highland terrier with them! Dogs are just dogs right? Dog owners who have NO idea as to how to treat or understand dogs are ***** Dec 2, 2019 16:52:58 GMT
robmc: Careful , you haven't met your new neighbours yet (I assume)! Dec 2, 2019 17:24:23 GMT
robmc: Mine's a Spaniel, he has quite a few obsessions but his top four are, balls (especially if they squeak), birds, squirrels and unicorn slippers. Dec 2, 2019 17:27:45 GMT
walkingdecay: A woman posts about what she perceives as sexism in a Mister Man book on her social media feed and that becomes "Mister Men book in sexism row" in The Daily Heil. Someone needs a sense of proportion - and it's not the woman. Dec 3, 2019 8:23:52 GMT
walkingdecay: Another akita quirk, as it happens. I've had to take the squeak out of toys because the "crying" upsets the bitches, who are fanatical mums. Akita lore has it that Japanese farmers trusted them with kids to the extent they'd leave them as babysitters. Dec 3, 2019 8:30:42 GMT
curmudgeon: We've had this strange creature for seven days! We weighed it - 12lbs! and he's 40 inches long - (longer than the Eastman parlour I just bought!) Hello little kitty (not) - and he doesn't like guitars - tough! Dec 3, 2019 21:15:39 GMT
walkingdecay: I like big domestic cats. They can be tough guys but I remember from my youth (which is closer to me than yesterday, it sometimes seems) that it was the little farm cats you needed to be most wary of. Maybe the big ones just concentrate on getting bigger. Dec 4, 2019 15:17:27 GMT
walkingdecay: Red sky at night: street lights. Dec 4, 2019 15:19:10 GMT
walkingdecay: Exchange about a pot-bellied pig on my wife's coven's chat feed: A: "You say he's very intelligent yet he eats tea bags?" B: "Well he says they're fine for him to have." Dec 5, 2019 9:02:52 GMT
ocarolan: .. I hope he knows which ones are plastic-free... Dec 5, 2019 14:58:54 GMT
walkingdecay: Oh I expect so. The conversations on there tend to run to things like organic veg and wicker coffins. Come to think of it, I'd like to be composted. Dec 5, 2019 15:46:23 GMT
