Re: Mad World

both the breeders are ex military whom hate people and have killed a lot of people in their past and both took to breeding dogs in military retirement
perhaps they are similar nature to your dad
 Quoting: aether


they are not similar in the slightest degree

my father had the family dog that bit me in the face when i was 18 months old put down on the same day it happened; mars, my chart ruler, was transiting the dog star on that very day as well

i wonder at times what difference it might have made had i been given a chance to 'make amends' so to say, and learn to trust again after having been bitten

i am over 40 years old and still to this day, any breed of dog with a similar muzzle, i.e. malamute, husky, akita, shepard - including my younger tree's aussie - cause an immediate fight/flight response upon eye contact that i've merely adapted to with a dissociative reaction
 Quoting: deafcat


It's sad but your father was protecting you. I've been bit by a husky and aus shepherd really bad. I thought I needed stitches at first. You can still kinda see where the husky bit me on the top of my wrist. I was trying to break up a dog fight. A few hours after he bit me he came up to me and put his head on my lap. Those sad eyes looking up at me. Of course I forgave him! I loved that dog so much! He never bit me again. He lived to be 16. I've been bit by cats too. One of the nastier bites the owner chose to put her cat down.

 Quoting: Ricky M


i respect and understand my father's decision. put in his shoes, i am absolutely sure i would do the same

i had to have 32 stitches. he's praised, on occasion, the skill of the surgeon who put my face back together for good reason. right now, most people hardly notice the scar.

few have lived through any semblance of my childhood of looking in the mirror, though


the first time i met my trees' grandmother on their mother's side was when i first met the husky she grew up with named scorpio. it took me many years to understand how i had misplaced the source of her anxiety ado with that meeting.

he had cataracts and was nearly blind, and was quite aggressive towards strangers. stranger danger and all that.

i froze with fear when he started approaching the opened door. and he came right up to me, welcoming, curious and comfortable.

because he could smell the fear. he knew he could make me his bitch.

and that response had a lasting effect, warranting a second-guessing as to whether or not i could be trusted by the tree's mother he had camaraderie with.

had i not been instilled with that fear, the trees i hold so dear may have never sprouted.

Re: Mad World
I had a Golden Retriever Spaniel mix with cataracts. He loved, loved, loved kittens. He would carry them around how mother cat does. Lick them, clean them. That dog was amazing. He was the one getting in the fight with the husky. He loved people and cats but did not get along with other dogs at all. Never bit any of us. When he was a pup he fell in the pool. He hated water after that. Previous owners named him after Jacques Cousteau. Cousteau was his name. :P

Re: Mad World
My mom was bitten viscously by a really badly socialized german shepherd owned by a client she worked for. It was brutal, like a huge chunk of her leg. She's luckily going to get a hefty settlement, but even then, she didn't want to see the dog put down. They sent it to this sanctuary for animals that have a lot of behavioral issues. I guess they just run around out there.

I have both a german shepherd and a husky, the sweetest dogs you will ever meet, so I guess it's just about how they're socialized and their temperment

Re: Mad World
My mum was bitten by a staffy in her late 20s. She had a decent bite, but I think the random unprovoked nature of the attack scared her more then anything.

She was ok with the 70kg Shepard with the nickname "bear", but couldn't bring herself to to relax around the 10kg staffy even after all that time had passed. Think it was the first one she'd allowed herself to be in close proximity with since then

Re: Mad World
It was heart-wrenching for my mom since she grew up in a family of german shepherds and our favorite family dog was the sweetest shepherd who ever lived. My mom loved shepherds, so in addition to the extreme nature of the bite she had to live with the fact that that breed was the one that attacked her.

 Quoting: Light of my Little Left Eye


You said it perfectly here Light.

Some are more inclined to be family dogs, others more a guard dog with a single owner, But that's down to the dogs personality and temperament.

Sounds like your mum was aware of that, and if an unprovoked attack, was definetly in the wrong hands.

Giuliani as Kevin, really works.

Being the movie is partly based on Trump. Craig T. Nelson's character is Trump. Just like Biff from back to the Future which was also based on Trump. It's like they were trying to tell us something..

I get it now. How absolutely important the separation between religion and politics truly is.

When churches tell people how to vote..they cross the line. Tax them all into the ground.

Re: Mad World
Pope John Paul II KNEW of extensive abuse allegations against American cardinal Theodore McCarrick involving young men but STILL promoted him to DC Archbishop and gave him powerful church positions, Vatican report reveals

Pope John Paul II knew of the extensive abuse allegations against American cardinal Theodore McCarrick but still promoted him to archbishop in Washington DC, a Vatican investigation has found.

McCarrick, 90, was defrocked by Francis last year after decades of allegations that the globe-trotting envoy and successful church fundraiser had sexually molested adults as well as children.

The Vatican took the extraordinary step Tuesday of publishing its two-year, 400-plus-page internal investigation into the prelate's rise and fall. It details how McCarricko often shared a bed at his New Jersey home with teenagers and puts the lion's share of blame on a dead saint: Pope John Paul II.

If you thought 2020 was bad! Pat Robertson says a period of violence will follow a Trump election win... and then an asteroid will hit earth

Pat Robertson, 90, has said Donald Trump will win the election 'without question'

He warned of violence in the vote's wake then years of 'extraordinary' peace

After that, an asteroid strike would hit the Earth 'maybe' bringing 'the end'

This is at least the third time the elderly preacher has predicted the world's end

For Whom the Bell Tolls
by
John Donne


No man is an island,
Entire of itself.
Each is a piece of the continent,
A part of the main.
If a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less.
As well as if a promontory were.
As well as if a manor of thine own
Or of thine friend's were.
Each man's death diminishes me,
For I am involved in mankind.
Therefore, send not to know
For whom the bell tolls,
It tolls for thee.
