Default Best foot forward?

I was curious. Is there anything dog related that you hide from the forum? Do you always put your best foot forward when you talk about your pup on the forum? Or do you tell it all, like it is? If there is aggression? Or socialization problems? Or your personal financial problems? Or things you do that are 'taboo' on the forum (like having an outdoor only dog)? Do you care that other people might judge you so you keep these 'problems' to yourself?

Sometimes it isn't 'hiding' things so much as just not disclosing something that isn't really anyone's business. Some information is private and not for posting on a public forum and not necessarily relevant to my dog and what's happening. If I have an issue, I ask about it. I'm not required to post my resume or life history to ask a specific question.

(mainly talking personal information..not my successes/failures as a dog owner)

i tell it like it is. how can someone help you if you're hiding things.
i'm not effected by what people think of me. what people think
of me isn't my business.

Couldn't have said it better. I would add not required to post resume or life history to express a viewpoint, even if it means failing massively in public.

Really like your new avatar Zeeva.
