I'm so tired of birthdays, holidays, weddings, whatever. I just want to be left alone. And I'm tired of eating. Our inlaws will invite us out for supper regularly, but they never tell us or they never know if anyone else is going so it seems like it's only supper with them, and I actually like them, so then I'll go. But then we get there and almost the entire family ends up going so there was no point in me coming at all except to wreck my diet and get diarrhea.

I'd like to go just one week without seeing my family or my inlaws. Just one week, is that so hard? Do other people see either their family or their inlaws nearly every other day?

Nope--I see my folks/inlaws maybe 2 or 3 times a year. All you need to learn is to say the word no.

Or move to another state. The word 'no' is much cheaper.

Default New Pup Owner Questions

We are about to receive our first German Shepherd pup and have some questions we thought you might be able to help with. If you have the time, please let us know your thoughts on the following:


1) Is it possible to mate 2 black & tan shepherds and get a 99% all black litter? Just trying to validate some of the information we're getting from our breeder.


2) We'll be receiving our pup @ 8 weeks. From this age to adult, do you have food recommendations such as what kind, what brand, how much per day and when to adjust these for growth?

3) Do you recommend pet insurance? If so, do you recommend any particular company?


If you choose to help us with these questions, thank you for your time & knowledge. We appreciate the help!!!

Hey Cory & Kara!

You really should post your questions in the proper forum. Not many folks look through the Random Thread. There is an Introduction Thread that would be a great place to start.

Welcome to the forum, and congrats on deciding to get a GSD!!!!

What a weird, weird day. At the doctor's office today, a girl about my age and VERY obviously on drugs (terrible acne, a missing tooth, rail thin, straw hair, and all over the place in general) came into the office part and was rummaging around and talking to the other woman about court stuff. She was talking about the doctor in a hushed voice but I tried to tune her out.

After she leaves the other woman tells me to be careful what I say in front of her... she's the doctor's mistress and a pathological liar What the....
I could see the "sugar daddy" relationship if she was, well, attractive. Not a ghastly meth addict with 4 kids by different dads. The doctor is a nice guy, attractive, scary smart. Things that are head scratchers...

Ohh that sounds lovely. I'm starting to say 'no', but I feel bad if I don't attend things like birthdays. And their family is so big there's a lot of birthdays. There's two birthdays just this week!

We were originally going to move to another province but then my husband got a job here. I wish we had moved .

ummm....walmart doesnt have greeters anymore. They're phasing them out. Here they now just have rude "inventory control specialists" which pretty much translates to paid to be a jerk to you even when you have an obvious receipt.
