    Sophie steals bones and cookies from Lucifer and Guapo and buries them either in my bed or in the couch . The other day my parents came by and when mom went to sit on the couch Sophie went crazy barking at her. Turned out she had stashed 12 milk bones under the couch pillow !! Lucifer thinks...
  8. Service dog question: real or imagined rudeness?

    General Dog Forum
    Anxieity can be very disabling . It is hard to understand unless you have ever dealt with a serious case yourself. When I have a bad attack it is physical. I don't think I should have to explain how that works for me in any situation. Just having the dog present in cases of PTSD, autism or...

    Here in Alaska you can keep a dog outside but by law you must have shelter and water available ( even if the dog never goes in the dog house like mine ).The mushers have what we call dog lots where they keep the sled dogs, each dog has a tie out and shelter and they can have dozens of dogs (...

    OK I was being a smarta$$ about the fish screaming. As far as shooting the fish have you ever caught a 200 lb halibut that has to be harpooned and brought out of the water with a cable and winch ? They use the firearm to kill the fish otherwise it would be extremely dangerous to bring onto the...

    I think PETA kinda hates Alaska. When you are fishing you are supposed to kill the fish with the ugly stick or with large fish ( 100lb or more halibut etc ) you actually have to shoot them first. We caught 225 salmon this season and I swear I didn't hear a single one scream but they sure...
