    They have to play victim for as long as possible first.

    There you go again. But yeah, I guess I've seen all I need to of what a loving committed human you are. Give yourself a medal.

    Are you still here? What do you need, an engraved permission slip to flounce out in a snit? Get on with it.

    Now see, I don't have a problem with kids doing something like that. They're kids. Even teens cause well, we all know teens are a bit crazy and I say that in good humor........as long as they take it off soon enough. But a grown adult putting polish on a dog??? IDK, to each their own I guess, but it's definitely not something I would do or think appropriate.

    I agree that is funny about the vet saying that :laugh:

    All of our pets are spayed or neutered cause that is just responsible pet ownership. I'm not a breeder and there are already too many strays or abused & neglected pets out there, so it's the right thing to do. All except the chickens, those I do want to breed......but then I don't see them as pets ;)

    Another difference is that we make all choices for their care, including getting fixed, what to eat, when to go out or where, etc

    Aw don't be a spoil sport. We painted the nails of our poodles, too. Snooper loved the attention.

    Your right, sometimes they just need to know when to cut the cord

    The dog generally doesn't care. And sometimes, it can help keep their claws from chipping and splintering, which can be painful for them.

    I know a lady with a standard Poodle who has the hip, shoulder, and head poufs cut into the shapes of the suits on a deck of playing cards, and then has them temporarily dyed the appropriate colors. Whatever.

    And again, people can be as pathologically attached to their pets as they want. I couldn't care less. But I'm sick and tired of them trying to horn in on Mothers' Day without making any of the commitment of ACTUALLY BECOMING A MOTHER.

    Ok, whatever floats your boat.......just don't expect me to do it. But then I have male dogs, and I'd have a heck of a time getting them to sit still for it, not to mention the Jack would probably bite me :rolleyes-41:
