People say dogs are a mans best friend. And I agree because I got a jackrussel and he chases cows that get out for me. He is a awesome dog. He loves to go woodchuck hunting.

i agree w. poster 8:19, they are only what you teach them or how much time you spend w/ them, kinda like kids... they only learn as they see. & we wonder why kids act as they do.

don't put too much value in what you teach. it's what you don't teach that'll get you every time.
now ... let's cut the commentary and start looking ofr those dogs.

what brought this on?

Anonymous said...

nothing, I apologize if it seemed sarcastic. I was just trying to say that sometimes we can overlook the little things too.
the comment about looking for the dogs was candid. I have 2 dogs it would be heartbreaking if they were ever stolen.
I'm sorry for the confusion.

I hope the dogs are returned and those involved are punished.
let's keep our fingers crossed.
