I also watched it thanks to this thread, I think it goes without saying that a dog is good for anyones soul. How many of us would be in a darker place without them? And even so, having them makes life that much more fulfilling.
Watched the Disney Plus movie of Togo last night. I think it was well done, especially the puppy work (watched the dog handling and training as much as for the story line). It ended on a good note but I still sobbed and sobbed. Anyone who spent as much time and energy on a good dog would have to have a heart of stone not to cry.

Has anyone seen Pick of the Litter? It's streaming on Hulu. This is where moderator Fodder works training service dogs. We watched it last week, it follows a litter of puppies from going to raisers then back to the facility for official training, selecting which ones will go on to be service dogs vs being washed out of the program, then being assigned to a person. Very cool!

I was about to check out when a woman behind me asked if I had a dog. What did she think, that I had an elephant?
Since I had little else to do, on impulse, I told her...

Found this and I thought I might share it! It's super fun, and I fell for every single one of the lines:
1) You are reading this.
2) You are human.
3) You can’t say the letter “P” without separating your lips.
4) You just attempted to do it.
6) You are laughing at yourself.
7) You have a...
I saw this on another breed board, and I thought it would be fun to try it out here.
First person lists how many GSDs they have. The next person adds on their number of GSDs, and so on. So, for example, first post starts out with: I have two GSDs, so:
Then the next person adds on theirs...
