Well it IS all perspective. And I guess us Northerners better pack our bags because of the climate change :P There's something more resilient about Northerners though. I'd positively die in Australia's heat but when 2 Aussies came in to my tourist shop complaining of how cold it was back home (0- -10c) I lol'd and likewise they laughed at me for complaining of the 30*c.

Gorgeous dog OFL!

Oh and Maisy, the cesar salad ones and perogies are soooo good!

I think my dog Nike may be finally growing a brain.

I swear she thinks she is only the size of like a Chihuahua.

A Schnauzer in a red coat barked at her and she was like "Run away! Run away!" I have to tell people she barks and puts her hackles up because she is scared not because she is aggressive.

It's hard because when people see her hackling up and barking at their dogs they think she is being aggressive and trying to attack their dogs. However, it's because she is absolutely terrified and I think it's a sort of 'the best offense is a good defense'.

Everything with her has to be super positive 'this isn't a big deal' type training. Her breeder donked her on the head once when she was getting excited by these two dogs playing and it made things about a hundred times worse that day. The next week she was great because I kept everything happy.

Hello again, OFL! I'm so glad you're back! I have been very worried about you and your health since you left. I hope you're doing okay.

I did, but it seems like they are genuinely responding to posts, so I was wondering if maybe there was some kind of virus in their computer or something...

Yeah it's really weird if you go back through their posting history in between the spam adverts they are actually making sense/responding to posts in a coherent manner.

Seems rather elaborate for a spammer from what I have seen.
