Yeah, I just asked & that's the same answer I got... whoa, consistency. Scary! Hilarious!
Do like the faster loading, especially when there's lots of pictures being posted.

I just got turned down as an assistance dog puppy raiser, 'cause my pet dog is an alpha dominant. They call that an "unresolved issue". It's not unresolved for her... it's real clear. She is top dog. Pretenders will be chastised. But what this group is putting out for raising aren't really pups, but young adult dogs 10-12 months of age w/a lot of training already under their belts. Still, I'm bummed. Sad

Hmmm, one thing I don't like about this new system is: I just clicked on "First Unread" but it only took me to Page 2. In order to see the rest, I had to click on Page 3.

Awww, Jay, that's really too bad. I think that could have been a good thing for all concerned. Tricky to handle Big Grin but potentially good all around. (We have some dominance issues here, too, that are being a bit of a challenge to deal with. Mediating dog fights is not on my list of fun things to do!)

Not really an option w/an assistance dog... they don't want them feeling threatened by other dogs, it interferes w/their ability to stay focused on their work if they're worried about the possibility of aggression from another dog. I completely understand the why of it, I'm just bummed; I would have enjoyed helping someone that way.

I do have a friend who is a puppy raiser for another group that actually sends out puppies, not adult dogs. The River butt is very good w/pups, no need to get big chested w/them. Maybe I'll look into that at some point.

Well, I defer to your greater store of knowledge regarding assistance dogs. Although, it does seem that since they aren't going to live in a vacuum, it would be a good thing for them to learn to ignore or deal with potentially aggressive dogs. But hey, what do I know? I got dogs trying to eat one another! Hilarious!

At least some of us... still some question as to woofie. Hilarious! I'm thinking agility just isn't her sport.

Just finished the 4th in the Dixie Hemingway series (Cat Sitter on a Hot Tin Roof). Ahem, she is now sporting a S&W .38 revolver as her favorite weapon, complete with speedloader. Think maybe the author got tired of sniping from people like me? Hilarious!

Finished The Lock Artist... an odd sort of mystery/suspense. Good, but odd.

Now reading Coben's Deal Breaker... I like the humor. Thumbs up

Finished that one a few days back; I'm liking his stuff. Right now I'm reading Hold Tight, which is well named because I'm having trouble putting it down!

After I built him up so much, I'm glad you all like Myron! But you have to admit, Win is a good compliment to Myron's persona.

I loved all of the Myron Bolitar books. I like everything Coben has written, but the Myron series is my favorite by far.

Hold Tight is one of his stand alone novels, and actually I'm liking it better than the one Myron Bolitar I've read so far. But still a great recommendation, Karen!

Frank, I really think you'd like Hold Tight Seems to me like it would be right up your alley!
