What private information??
Sure you could read PMs if you want to dig into them at a database level, not a big feat, but a pita, and who really cares what is in them.  I run a couple of boards and yeah, I could read PM's if I wanted to at a database level, its a pita to dig into the stuff and who the heck has the time for it... I mean seriously.. why would anyone want to???

Is an email address considered private information?

And just so that I am totally off-topic
Here's a chicken in the kitchen:

 ;D ;D ;D

Maybe he expressed his glands?  Ours do that every now and then and well have to use a wet cloth to clean them in that area...

Maybe I'm just getting older and sappier.... but I will say these two that we have seem a lot more sensitive than any other breed of dog that I remember, and more in-tune to your emotions, etc... so it makes sense to me that a pup as sensitive as a newf would have soft poops and be a bit out-of-character when being placed into a whole new environment.  They really are wonderful animals, and you're probably in your honeymoon stage.. the fellow will probably be zooming around and chewing shoes, etc before you know it :)

Agree on the Newfs being gentle with the cats.

When our senior cat died.   I found her laying on her side on the kitchen floor on a small blanket, with a newf on each side of her.    The dogs never layed in that spot, but it was like they knew something was wrong with her and laid there with her.    They have been very patient with any other animal they have met.. not much in the way of prey drive with the two we have.

We had an older cat when we got our two newfs.  I don't think we did anything special to introduce them.  I never have with any dogs/cats previously.  I've always found that the dogs learn to respect the kitty's claws fairly quickly after an encounter or two :)

Hey BPO.. Long time no type :)

Just wanted to share a quick vid shot a while back.. bava relaxing after his dip in the "Spa"

What Shangrila said about the socks sounds good.
We actually have a chilly bone around here somewhere... I was not real impressed with it.  It is about the same makeup as a small "suspicious chicken" and doesn't soak up the water very well to begin with.  Our pups didn't care for it.  The frozen socks or a wash-cloth sounds more like something ours would like.  One thing Melissa started doing for them that they love is to freeze plain yogurt in ice cube trays and to give them one of those every now and then.. Mmmmm Mmmm.. :)

Really a sad situation :(  Something similar like that happened at a local park here. A rottweiler killed a pomeranian.  This prompted the city to add an additional section for small dogs.  I hope the city will do the same for this park so the little fellows can be safe.

Thanks, but I'd rather not argue with you.  I would just like to confirm with Winslow that I agree.

Thank you,

Winslow.. you're not alone .

Mel's hubby here... we fed the chicken soup for a long time, but I took them off of it because of consistency issues... the food would look different from one bag to the other.. some bags the dogs seemed to have an issue with and others went great.  It seemed like at the time the diamond foods were having issues.   Just my 2 cents.. but I sorta lost my faith in that food brand after noticing that myself.

Been feeding evo for a while now, and not one issue like we had with the diamond feed.  Hopefully they have gotten that straightened out by now.

This is the handscraped stuff we went with, you can probably tell in the pictures it is a rougher finish than hardwood normally is.  We're pretty pleased with it so far and the dogs haven't slipped yet.  We had a nice laminate in the entranceway that we took up and replaced with this.. I just hated how slippery it was especially if you come in out of the rain.

Hahaha.. I meant a beer box... I don't know what kind of picture this will paint of us.  But a beer box, or a cardboard box in the bottom with some toys from goodwill in it goes a long way around here for a good time for the birds.  I meant you can just shove a beer box through the bars.. he will work on tearing up that "evil" box for a while and get some energy out.

We also buy sacks of toys from goodwill, and then go through them and throw out all the ones with screws or that look unsafe, the others we might put in a food bowl, or throw them in a box in the bottom, they will go and get a toy at a time and bring it up and destroy it, the boxes are always empty by the end of the day.

Speaking of beer, I made the mistake of letting Cookie taste my beer one time, and now I can't drink a beer if he is on me, or he will go crazy trying to get to it, and he'll clamp his beak on the mouth of the bottle and not let go.. You aren't supposed to , but I will dip my finger in the beer occasionally and let him lick it, not enough to do harm... He will pin his eyes and say "mmmmmm.. It's good"! :)
