To be honest, after some of the threads I've read and some of the ways breeders responded, it totally turned me off. As mentioned, I am a marketing/sales manager for a large industrial hydraulic supplier. We deal with many accounts, some of them large OEM's, some of them are just small one man show repair centers. Regardless, they are all current/potential customers. I do not treat the small shop any different than the OEM (well besides pricing maybe lol). Now, I know this isn't the greatest comparison because in no way am I saying that every person here is a sales person. But what I will say is this: I don't care if you have the best dog with the best lines with the most titles in the whole wide world. If you are a jerk, I will go elsewhere. Also, word of mouth is a powerful force. If you are difficult to deal with, overly opinionated, or consider yourself superior, good luck in life. That might work for a while, but it always fails at some point. I, on the other hand, would like to establish relationships not just with pet owners, but with all types of people. Why limit yourself to only one certain type of person? I feel that being close minded in this way only allows you to see through the scope you have constructed, not the one that actually exists. I think we all have things to learn from one another. I work in a business where everyone thinks they should be the final authority on everything. If I had a dollar everytime I heard the phrase, "Well, I've been doing this for (insert your supposed years here)", I would be a millionaire 3 times over. But going off topic here, the fact is I think that having connections with people in different aspects of pet ownership is amazing. It gives you an insight on the diversity of any breed, and allows for great discussions. Hopefully I'll see a shin dig that's for everyone whether you are sport, pet owner, or breeder!
Just my observation. I can be wrong.

I'm actually the same way. I'm equally polite to everyone, servers, bosses, homeless, whoever. until you do something that makes me feel like I can be a bitch I will be nice no matter where you come from. I can also be friends with anyone as long as they're my kind of people.

I think it says something about people when they're condescending to waiters or delivery people, for example.

Even though I think breeders can be an eccentric bunch and the ones I have dealt with are certainly passionate about their opinions...( man, did I sugarcoat that opinion )....they do bring food for thought to the table. I love different opinions because what fun would talking to mirrors be?

SuperG
for sure. I def enjoy reading most of their posts.

Okay...if in fact you are the product of 2 A&Ps...this should be easy...

What are the 3 types of turbine blades?

a. reaction, converging and diverging

b. impulse, reaction, and impulse reaction

c. impulse, vector, and impulse-vector

Isn't that B? I don't have any A&P relatives, but turbines made up a majority of my physics practicals.

Unfortunately, I do not know this answer, but I am quizzing my mother right now to see if she still remembers. Now if you want to know the difference between an "A" mount pump vs "B" mount pump, how to change rotation on a vane pump, what PSI you need to run to get the right amount of GPM, or what spool type you have on your directional valve, I can help!

Omg you've lost me!

Now I will say I notice this as well. Some ppl are loved: if it's due to being known in IPO or some other sport venture. Or knowing the amount of work they do with their dogs.

I do think ppl are sick of picture threads (and no this doesn't stop me from making them) and most do go in and look but don't take time to comment.

Then some of my posts (house related and my non GSD posts) get a couple of comments and that's perfectly fine with me! And then things like "which dog breed is not your cup of tea" get like 500 responses...

Lala I think you get so many posts because you love controversial topics and you love discussions...

AR groups and animal testing and shelter overpopulation is as controversial as it gets. nope none)))))
and then not sitting fast enough gets a few pages

I'm not being cute, I seriously don't get it

i do love discussions and controversy though


OP what made you post this thread? because you didn't get responses to the pics you posted? yeah I never get it either. some pics get none, others gets a bunch.

lots of it has to do with the person posting but then newbies get responses. I don't know
