Oh lol, I don't mind it. I just assumed you got busy w/ life lol. Buuut, it is nice to hear from you again :). After reading your post, I realize my views were a bit skewed at the time, mainly b/c I was thinking of all the poor dogs who never get a home or get put down b/c they're too old. But again, idk... I just feel like there's just too much neglect. Now that I think of this, I wonder why dogs can't just be free in the wild, but then questions about the environment come to mind and stray dogs and how other countries have too many strays b/c they don't neuter their animals. I also admire such ppl who can take in dogs or animals who have some serious health issues or not long to live. Now I'm kind of rethinking my whole adopting vs buying a dog thing, but I still would probably prefer to adopt, but I think the age and health would have to be considered depending on my living situation. I also kind of feel bad for the dogs who get adopted or bought b/c their owners think they look pretty, but their breed makes them act differently than how their owners want. Like how border collies usually need a job or something to do to have a fulfilling day, but a lot of them just get locked up all day.
Please keep a watch out.
Hey, it's been awhile, hopefully your schedule has settled down a bit. Have you made any plans yet to own a papillon? Living on my own has made me realize that I don't think I'm ready to own a dog, unless I get into shape first. That or have the dog as a motivator to get me into shape. I'd also probably adopt a mid-old age dog. What are you thoughts on people who only adopt/buy puppies when older dogs need so much help? I find it to be sad and wish there was a way to change this stigma on older dogs.
I understand your view on the shonen ai thing and on how you don't think it truly reflects real life. I think yaoi and yuri are good methods for introducing the concept to people who've never heard of it before. Honestly, I think I first heard about people identifying as "gay" through a manga and it was a much better medium than say through the church. Do you have a type of "bias" when reading?
Seems like we have some decent overlap.
Ahhh I cant believe I got the name wrong. It's Idolish7 not stylish. What the he'll was I thinking.... Well, he is stylish.
Oohhh here is a new guy to grace your presence. Give it up for Nikaido, Yamato from the boy band stylish7. Not only is he hot and sophisticated looking, but his voice actor (Shirai, Yusuke-sama) is to die for. Especially when he sings. Makes me melt every time. To me, Yamato is the hottest guy of the boy band stylish7. The best part is I cam here his voice in some of the otome games.
Lived in anchorage for 1 year and never had witnessed an earthquake. Now that I moved away from alaska, an earthquake hits... Maybe the earthquake is mad for moving? Just kidding, but man they are fast in repairs.
That's a creative way to get the training in. Have you gone to dog shows before? I'd like to go once, just to see what it's like.
In a sense all dogs are mutts of a kind, since they're all mutations bred off of wolves. I think your mindset is one good to have. I particularly don't really care too much, unless I'm going to use my dog for show or competitions. Buuut that'd be a money pit.
Also, what made you become a fujoshi? Are you a spectacled fujoshi?
I suppose that might be true. Most disciplines do become easy to do after you train them a few times. It's just the beginning that's difficult. Where do you find the space to train your dogs? I don't have a big yard and my dog would probably runaway off leash lol. I know there are dog training facilities, but you have to pay for them. About falconry, I would plan to not get my dog involved w/ that. Buuut, I do think it'd be cool if I could get my dog to go hunting w/ me. Also what do you think about people who are trying to develop new dog breeds and them become official breeds in the kennel clubs? I watched quite a few dogumentary tv on youtube where I got interested in this b/c I saw a pretty awesome new mix.
That sounds like a lot of work to me, I don't know how you mean it's not a lot of work. I assume if you're in the competitive scene, you'd be working your dogs everyday, except weekends maybe, but w/ some variation. The reason I asked you this is because I once had the desire to take up falconry and I figured it would probably take about the same amount of work as being a competitive dog trainer.
