    I saw a couple i vaguely know today and they used to have a gorgeous Lab. But they had a Staffie puppy today. So i asked where the Lab was and they replied

    ''we got rid of him, because he was naughty, he never listened'' i asked if they trained him. No they didn't do anymore than teach him 'bed' and 'sit' and 'paw' :rolleyes:

    I then asked about the Staff pup and asked if they would train him and they said ''he seems to be so good, not really any need too'' Grrrrrrrrr :mad:

    Why do people do this? Its not right.

    Although on a lighter note! I also saw a very old lady with a very old Dalmation. I chatted to them for a while and we got on the subject of dog foods. She siad she fed ''Frolics''...................because:

    Its has a Dally on the front so it must be good for Dallies! :lol: :lol:

    So sweet! I know its not a great food but i mean the Dally was roughly 11/12 (she rescued him years ago) and still seemed very fit bar a few issues! Bless her!

    I hate that attitude wah he's barks/doesn't listen/pulls on the lead. Screw training him just throw him away to a shelter or worse and get a new one.

    So sweet about the dalmation though

    This is how i feel. Its makes me so cross. I mean i rescued a very problematic Springer and i still have him! I could have easily 'dumped' him and got another dog. It does make me so mad :mad: worse still the Staffie came from the UK and was delivered :eek: they never even met the ''breeders'' the 'son' came over with the pups :mad: :(

    Yes the old lady was ever so sweet, i am hoping to meet her again tomorrow at the park :thumbup:

    Its not a puppy mill dog...a BYB though. Its a person who used to live here but moved to the UK. And bred their Staffy to make a few quick bucks :mad: :mad:

    They do only have the one bitch. And ''apparently'' won't be doing again. Because the bitch ''cost a fortune'' due to being ill.....:mad: :frown:

    my mothers best-friend * loved! * kittens... :001_tt1: but did not like cats. :huh:

    so over the years, they had many kittens - most of them only for a year or at most 18-mos, then they gave the cat away,
    took it to a shelter, etc. :blink: it was so weird to me - meanwhile, we had 2 Siamese, Pretty and her daughter Beauty
    (named by my elder-sister - what do U expect from a 4-YO? :D) and Pretty was 17-YO when she died -
    her daughter, born when Pretty was 2-YO, was TWENTY-One Years Old! when she died - she had seen me thru childhood
    and into college! she was about 12-MO when i was born.

    i thought it was so strange to love kittens + dislike cats intensely - How can that be? it makes no sense - cats are still playful,
    affectionate, and much better-behaved than kittens. :(

    Beauty was a lovely cat - i was very fond of her. she was an applehead (old-fashioned traditional Siamese)
    a seal-point with a small kink in her tail, and deep-sapphire eyes.
    she played fetch, came to her name, and purred with a lovely thrum.

    OMG Terry! You just reminded me of a friend of mine. She was EXACTLY the same. My oldest cat (Tigger, nearly 12 years old) was a 7 week old kitten when I got him. I lived with this friend at the time.
    Since then, she must have gone though about 9 kittens (no joke). They would get to a certain age or size and she would suddenly have a reason why she had to get rid of them to friends...a house move, an allergy, catfights (they always came in two's when she got them).

    I can't understand people like that at all.
