  1. Boats and hoes. But seriously, I'd just get a big property in the middle of nowhere and adopt 20 dogs.
  2. I've worked with dogs at every job I've had in the last 10 years. While I wouldn't say it's a common problem, I do see it occasionally and it seems to mostly be German Shepherds. I'd recommend first taking him to the vet to rule out any sort of health issue. Some vets also sell something called "For-Bid" which is a powder you add to their food that will deter them from eating their poop. I haven't tested it out so I can't comment on the efficacy of it though. Something I have tried which seemed to work most of the time is pineapple; just add a slice or 2 to each meal and it apparently makes their poop taste terrible. What kind of food are you feeding him?
  3. I worked at an animal shelter for years. Sometimes it felt like the best job ever, at times it was the worst. Some happy endings but saw so many abused animals, and people who dumped their sick and old animals without a care in the world. I don't think I ever got used to it, but I got used to suppressing my feelings. I went from bawling publicly to being able to hold it back until I got home, to being unable to ever cry at all. I could watch a dog or cat that I had been caring for for years and be able to act like nothing had happened. I had to quit eventually because I couldn't handle it, I could never sleep at night, I couldn't stay in any relationship long term because I had constant angry outbursts, and I was always too tired to hang out with friends. I almost never took any time off and when I did, I felt guilty about it. I guess compared to that experience, working at a vet clinic was way less stressful. Yeah, there are sick/injured animals, euthanasias, and difficult clients, but at least for the most part, the animals were loved. Unlike most of my coworkers, I don't find euthansias hard, because I don't feel like I have to grieve for the animals, they have owners that do that. And I don't go home from work worrying about the animals like I did at the shelter, they have owners that'll fuss over them.
  4. Vet tech... basically a nurse but for animals and with crappy pay. Have to clean up a lot of pee and poop and vomit and blood and get bitten/scratched a lot. Still better than having to deal with people though.
  5. Almost didn't read this thread because of the block of text in the OP but so glad I stuck with it. Reminds me of this: http://vgperson.tumblr.com/post/21533650696/help-the-girl-i-like-wont-respond-to-my-emails Not quite as epic but it's got potential
  6. Sonic the Hedgehog on the Genesis
  7. Anyone have an FJ Cruiser or tried one out? Been thinking about getting one for a while... love my Impreza but it can't take me on all the adventures I want to go on.
  8. Got my Grey Cup tickets, hopefully the Lions will be there.
  9. Gave up on this game, always crashing and not really interesting anymore.
  10. Sean Avery was on Dancing with the "Stars" AND he danced a salsa? Now this I have to see...

  11. Been crashing too @#$%ing much lately, especially when I try to visit friends.
