I know! I hate hearing that word even when it is used as it should be. But to hear it the way she used it just makes me cringe. I was raised to believe that there are enough words out there to effectively explain how we feel without reverting to cuss words. The ones who felt the need to use these words used them because they were not educated enough to find the proper words to express themselves!

1john44, not everything is covered by insurance though,unfortunately.


As for you MizzErica.I suggest you watch that potty mouth of yours.If there is anyone rude in here it's you.If you don't like what is being said here then leave.If you read all of her first post,you would know why we are so upset.

And when you decide to leave........

don't let the back door hit you were the good lord split you.

I haven't been involved in this post from the beginning but I have been reading it over.

This does seem to have gotten nasty. Obviously not everyone in life has been brought up with the same set of skills and education. It seems like many people who have posted legitimately have concerns for what sounds like a bad situation for the dogs in this person and her grandfathers life. That said, this person was reaching out for help and her current situation is the way it is, the only thing she can do is improve it in the future. People don't want to do that when they are criticized harshly.

Food for thought: Educate not alienate!

You must realize, some people are not interested in being educated.

They want a quick fix, and preferably one that will not cost them a cent.

Any attempts at education are met with belligerence and hostility.

At our rescue, we see this time and again. People wanting an easy answer to dump their animals, not get vet care, etc. When suggestions or alternatives are given, they get angry and abusive.

Go bigger call them emperess's. Boy I don't know if that is spelled right! That would be hard, but it is just like several other cuss words. THey start out as legitimate words, and they end up being filth!

We haven't heard from mizzthang so maybe Marko took care of it

hmm.. I must be the second youngest on here, or something.

I'm 22!

I moved out of my mom's house @ 19 with Chocolate, who was then 5 months... yes, the dog.

life WAS hard, it still is!

I've somehow managed to build my family as my lifestyle pertained.


I have *NO* idea how you think you can manage sharing responsiblity of those (four 100lbs?) dogs plus a baby that's due so soon...

one income from the father cannot be enough, mind you, welfare can provide for your child if need be so you go back and get your high school diploma.


FYI, a computer is an investment but it IS expensive, I share my internet connection bc I can have zero patience for dial-up & cable internet access is a good $45+/month.

instead I split the costs with my neighbours.


btw, "queen" or "duchess" sounds like a wonderful idea!!
