Amina, you really do post unique interesting threads that are so interesting and refreshing to read, like this one and the "show me your backyards". Okay, my turn to explain why I took a forum break. It was really a combination of what the others have said. Yes, I got tired of the same old questions. What I now to do is not stick to one subject like the training but to go to active topics (which is how I found yours ) and new posts, so I don't get in a rut, and just enjoy the braggs and the photos - that way I've really come across some interesting different threads. And yes, I did get discouraged and got into a heated thread in the breeders section with the working line folks being loudly opposed to the big oversize GSDs like my Sting. But I came to realize, that they did have some valid points (the standard for one), but so what, it didn't really matter what they thought, to each their own. And of course there was work - converting old Microsoft spreadsheets to Excel, like Kyleigh wrote the last thing I wanted to do was get back on a computer in my off time. What got me back, was a new GSD owner who I met last May. She had rescued a GSD and had 3 other dogs and a cat. I recommended the forum and so I thought, why not see what's going on, and I stayed.
