Fun with Doggie DNA test

So our old dog passed. He was 1/2 lab. 1/4 Border Collie and 1/4 mixed. Got a new puppy off CL, supposed to be 3/4 lab, 1/4 Aussie Not even close. He is 24% Staffy 11% Bulldog 12% Aussie Cattle dog 9% White swiss Sheppard 4% German Sheppard 17% Chow 7% Siberian Huskey 16% Lab Man that's a lot of dogs in our little guy ( well at 6 months, not so little anymore) Funny thing is, he looks pretty "labish" right down to fully webbed feet, with a bit of a Pitbull face. and lab Sheppard ears. He is a good little guy, no sign of aggression and pretty darn smart. But I do worry a bit, about the Staffy part. Am not sure the sellers were intentionally lying, apparently he is the son of two dogs that were neighbors, so I think they just took their best guess, and maybe stretched the truth a bit Anyway, have not had puppy in many years, forgot how much work they are

RE: Price increase at our KOA

Similar thing happened at a campground we went to for many years. But the new owner, I am sure took on a lot of debt, he is the one taking the risk. (and the work) Bottom line, it is his business he gets to run it anyway he wants. And I hope he succeeds and does well. I would add, having run my own business for 40 plus years, if you want to go broke, keep your charges low and only cater to those interested in price and not what you have to offer them as a business

RE: Unnecessary Warnings Shown on Products

Regarding that McDonald's lawsuit mentioned earlier by Paw Paw 'n Gram, where a lady spilled hot coffee on herself and sued the company; that to me is a frivolous suit. As far as I remember, no employee spilled the coffee on her; she spilled it on herself. While I'm sorry for her injuries, how in the world could she blame anyone but herself? If she had spilled coffee on herself at home, who could she blame? The stove manufacturer for making the coffee so hot? Lawyers take all kinds of cases, no matter how frivolous! Don't you love 'em? :R You might consider goggling "McDonalds hot coffee case" After reading the facts of the case, you might not consider the case frivolous. In short McDonalds knew for many years the were keeping their coffee near scalding, and that it was causing injuries. They ignored it, Not trying to be snarky at all, just saying the facts and urban legend are very different

RE: Giving it up

You may recall, I posted in your last thread, that I had lost my wife of 45 years. I too considered selling the house and taking the "geographic cure". Supplemented with copious amounts of alcohol. I did not go that way, I am still in the house with no plans to sell. I too sold the RV for the exact reasons you describe. Both turned out to be good choices. I would not presume to tell you what to do, I can only speak for myself. But year and half has passed now, and things are much better. I don't know if I can live with it, but I have learned to live along side it. Keep the faith, wishing you the best

RE: Just got back fro the local bike shop

Pretty much every thing outdoor related is sold out locally. Tried to get kayaks local, with no success. Got them an amazon. But they tend to go pretty quick, then come back up in a week or two. You might try Amazon for a bike, might be the same type of thing as our kayaks

RE: Living in a Trailer

I my humble opinion. This is what I believe. I lost my wife 15 months ago. First the one year rule comes out of Victorian England. It is not a law. It is cultural only, it may work for some for others it does not. Grief is very individual and follows different paths for all of us. Two, well meaning folks that have not walked in your shoes, have zero idea what they are talking about. So do what is in your heart of hearts, listen to you inner voice. not to others think you should do or not do I have no opinion on whether you should go for the trailer or not. I can only relate what my thoughts were after loosing my wife. I thought long and hard about the trailer idea, " preferably parked next to a bar". But in the not so long run I concluded I would be very miserable living alone. Others do fine alone, but I am just not built to do that. So I reengaged, went back to work took care of business and so on. For me it was a wise choice. Keep the faith, choose to continue to live, it will get better. Take Care

RE: Is there something I am missing ?

Actually all one has to do is google "Mayo Clinic mask study" Interestingly the study shows pretty much the exact opposite of what Agesilaus states. Maska are apparently quite effective as is the 6 foot distance rule. Or perhaps my reading comprehension is very poor, but that is what I get out of reading the results and watching the clinics video's on this research

RE: Credit Score

This is not a crabby comment on people that carry a balance, this is a comment on people that CAN and DO pay the CC off every month become a poor credit risk. How bizarre is that, folks?? Back to the topic please. I as well, pay off my CC balances every month, so your post got me curious. So I consulted "Google University". if I understood what I read, it is not so much paying them off every month,( although some sites say keeping a 1% balance is best) it is not using them. What they call the utilization rate, that affects your score. As I understand it, is all based on formulas, such as available credit. your carry over balance and so on. So if you have a card you never use, and two you do, that unused one maybe the culprit in lowering the score. I Learn something new everyday LOL

RE: Toad or No Toad ?- Grand Canyon road trip in a 23' class A

did 15 years in a 24ft C with no toad. Couple of thoughts At 24ft much easier to find a campsite, than with the MH plus a toad Easier to stop in some small town, or small roadside attraction As for the big parks ( and have been to 90% of them in the west) the parking is always going to be a problem, no matter if you are in a car or not. so best advise, get up early, hit the park as soon as it opens, you will have no problem parking a 24 ft

RE: Any runners around the campfire?

In the Doctoring biz, the answer to the which exercise is best Doc? The answer is, which ever one the patient will do. My advise don't get to hung up on what the so called experts say. Just do something, and do what it is you like. Just Move!!

RE: Windshield defroster question

There should be a vacuum line to operate the mix door which could be inside the heater box assembly. From my experience rats tend to enjoy those vacuum lines as a tasty treat. I wonder if the PO may have had that happen prior to your ownership

RE: Any runners around the campfire?

Hi 4x4. As a Chiro Doc, first I think it is wonderful you are working out. Good for you. You ask " what is the downside of working to hard?" My answer is this running is in general a exercise I advise my older patients against. It is just to hard on those older knees and backs. It can cause lots of problems. I would suggest lower impact exercises like biking, longer walking and so on. That said, there are always exceptions. I have had folks in their 80's still running half marathons. But as a rule of thumb running is usually not a great sport for anyone over 30 in my opinion I would also add, it is often good for one to change their focus from getting shape to staying in shape. Exercise should be a long term goal, not a short term one. Doing some form of exercise 2 to 3 days a week is what is important. If you lose weight short term, but hurt yourself or burn yourself out on the routine, then nothing really is accomplished. Long term commitment, to a exercise plan you will enjoy and will do is the key..If you don't like the exercise if you are like most of us you just will let it slide and not do it

RE: Teacher's Pet

Please pace yourself and don't be too hasty. It would be easy to get taken advantage of while dealing with your grief. Get advice from others that you trust, so often we hear stories of widows being swindled. I lost a girlfriend to cancer in 1992 and later realized I was in a fog for over a year after. Just something to think about, Wish you well. Thank you for the heads up. I have no intention of falling "victim" to anyone. My son is here in Florida as well and I can call on him if needed. Dale I don't think you will fall victim to anyone. But I will say I sold ours 6 months ago, after my wife died. I did let it go for a little cheaper, as I just wanted it gone. I am fine with that. Pain of selling it, far out weighed the few extra dollars I might have got, had I held out for my price and gone through the sales thing over and over with each prospective buyer. It was pretty tough sledding as it was

RE: Vetting Breeders

I wonder if you could call the breeder's vet. They probably would not say anything to negative, but anything short of a ringing endorsement, you might be able to read between the lines? I am a lab guy ( for the last 40 years) I also would not want a lab breed for hunting way to alpha, way to hyper. I know nothing about Springers in that regard though You might try craigslist, might find someone who just wanted to breed one litter of pups for friends and family and has an extra or two. Just did that with our current lab, he is great. Just some random thoughts As an after though I am sure you are probably aware, with the Covid, dogs are in high demand right now. Selection has gone down and price has gone up. At least that was our experience in the last month

RE: Buying from a private party

I am a member of the club. My DW died unexpectedly last year. So I would offer these thoughts. I think it is good you are looking forward as to what you want to do next. I would say this, don't listen to closely to those who have never lost a spouse, no matter how well intentioned they don't really get it. For me, selling the MH was a very hard thing. I unloaded it and sold it by myself. I do not recommend that, as it was very painful. Looking back I would have put it on consignment, or at least had a friend or family member help. Way to many memories, way to much pain I think first order of business is get the class A sold. Then take a breath, look into your heart and let a few months pass. You will have a better idea of what you want to do. I have no advise on that. For me I decided, no motorhome for a few years. But each individual is different I wish you the best, hang in there, it does get better with time

RE: Arkansas SP $40 Dog Fee - REALLY ??

Seems from reading it, the fee applies only to cabins and yurts, not campsites. Might want to double check if that is true
