Thanks you. I spent my first years in service following a dog in the old K-9 corps. Our dogs were trained to be aggressive which I don't want in my home. I spent endless hours walking around what we called "the idiot circle" training Max to heel, sit, down, stay, come and to attack. Obedience is a necessity, and as important for a happy dog as it is the parents. Never gave treats for good behavior. Praise was a much more desired reward for our dogs than was a treat. Listen to me rambling.....I need another dog.

Praise only works well with working and herding breeds, but, at least at first, food treats are a requirement when training terriers, which are much more independent due to what they were bred to do. A terrier was bred to rid the farm an house of rats, mice, possums, an even, on occasion, raccoons or badgers. Telling them they are good is not much of a reward to those independent dogs, but a small piece of hot dog along with the "good dog". Most dogs are trainable but not with the same kind of training or goals.

Venezuela crisis: Russian military planes land near Caracas

The planes were sent to "fulfil technical military contracts", Russia's Sputnik news agency reported.

Javier Mayorca, a Venezuelan journalist, wrote on Twitter that he saw about 100 troops and 35 tonnes of equipment offloaded from the planes.

It comes three months after the two nations held joint military exercises.

Russia has long been an ally of Venezuela, lending the South American nation billions of dollars and backing its oil industry and military. Russia has also vocally opposed moves from the US to sanction the government of Venezuelan president Nicolás Maduro.

Mr Mayorca said on Twitter that a Russian air force Antonov-124 cargo plane and a smaller jet landed near Caracas on Saturday.

He said that Russian General Vasily Tonkoshkurov led the troops off one of the planes.

A military plane with a Russian flag on its fuselage could be seen on the tarmac at an airport on Sunday. Images on social media also appeared to show Russian troops gathered at the airport. (show quote)

Why would that surprise anyone? The Russians fully intended to make Venezuela a satilite Communist state, and probably have been behind the Marxist takeover of Venezuela all along. What a great way to get the oil that is in Venezuela.

You won’t believe how transgenders are demonizing rape victims
March 22, 2019

Leftists want everyone to bend the knee to their LGBT agenda.

They claim to be champions of those society has “victimized.”

But how this gang of trangender radicals slapped true victims in the face reveals what they’re really about.

Except for using people to advance their own political power, radical leftists don’t care about people’s life experiences.

The latest group of supposed victims that the Left has latched onto are biological men and women who are confused about their sex.

They’re trying to force everyone to accept transgenderism as completely normal.

And anyone who refuses to kowtow is labeled a “transphobic bigot.”

There’s always been universal agreement among leftists that taking tax dollars for almost any use imaginable is okay.

But the Left has become so unhinged over all things LGBT, they’re even willing to bar funding of organizations if they don’t bow down to radical transgender activists.

In fact, transgender radicals in Vancouver Canada recently defunded a women’s rape crisis center because the center simply wishes to separate the women it serves from men.

LGBT activists cried “transphobia.”

The Christian Post reports:

Vancouver Rape Relief, which was founded in 1973, was defunded because they were “supporting transphobia,” according to city council member Christine Boyle, who in a March 13 tweet explained that she was voting to strip the organization of public funds because she could not support an organization that was not “inclusive” of transwomen and sex workers.

Transgender advocates celebrated the vote as they have long considered the nonprofit group as a hub of bigotry toward persons who identify as transgender.

The rape crisis center said in an statement online that they were the victims of discrimination masked as “inclusion” and said the city government was attempting to “coerce us to change our position” of barring males and only offering services to females, the National Post reported earlier this week.

“Our services are available to all women who have experienced male violence. We provide assistance to women and girls in prostitution who have been assaulted by johns, pimps or men pressuring them into prostitution. We provide assistance to women who are currently being prostituted, women who are trying to escape prostitution, and women who have been trafficked into prostitution,” VRR explained.

VRR has long maintained that forcing females — particularly those recovering from rape and other forms of male violence — to share intimate spaces with males, even if they present as female, is disrespectful of the victims and often serves to re-traumatize them.
The move to bar VRR from government resources was led in large part by Morgane Oger, a trans-identified male who has long accused this group of discrimination and bigotry. Oger is also the vice president of the British Columbia New Democratic Party.

“Rape Relief is strong enough and principled enough and has enough supporters in the community … we will say no to that kind of money,” VRR spokesperson Hilla Kerner told Star Vancouver in a March 14 phone interview before the city council vote took place.
Meghan Murphy, the Vancouver-based founder and editor Feminist Current and longtime advocate for VRR’s work, said the city government’s action against them was “disgusting.”

As we reported, the Left crossed a serious line when LGBT activists’ started coercing our children by having Drag Queens take over kids’ story times in public libraries.

Using children to advance their agenda is despicable.

But it’s hard to believe leftists are so consumed by the transgender agenda that they’re taking it out on rape victims.

Great ideas and help. I believe we're going to look for a Golden Retriever or Border Collie. But in truth, I just need a dog to give this stored up unrequited love that's building up inside me some release.

I would suggest that you contact the national club of each breed and find out if there is a local club and talk to them. In both breeds I would be looking for a perhaps a retired show dog or brood bitch from a small breeder, preferably from long lived stock. The heart problems in some lines of Goldens are significant. Unfortunately I do not know the health problems in Borer collies. Border Collies are smarter but very busy active dogs that REQUIRE training to make god family dogs.

I wish I had an easy answer. So many now lie about a dog’s background and most people don’t know that about a million a year are brought in from other countries.

Pennylynn may have some good contacts - she is involved in rescue. I no longer am - its been a long time.

If you can go to a shelter and see what they have. There are a lot of good dogs in shelters that people dump because they won’t take a few minutes a day to train. If one catches your eye spend some time with it. Don’t fully rely on the workers there for input. If you can take a friend for more objectivity.

If you want a particular breed you can contact a breeder. Many of them are involved in rescue for their breed.

I know it sucks to lose a dog. I can’t imagine being without one.

Good luck finding a new one.

Breed rescue groups sponsored by the national or regional clubs are often a good place to go. The best place to go is to a reliable breeder looking to place a retired show dog, or a bitch that has had one or two litters an now needs a great home. Most GOOD breeders seldom breed their bitches more than 3 or 4 times often only twice and then find a good home for them. Our good friend in Welsh Terriers usually has a waiting list for her retired bitches, most of which have had two or three litters, are AKC champions, leash trained and used to other dogs and a lot of different people. She always has them spayed before thy leave her place and many great dogs live out their lives as pets well loved by their new families. One of these dogs died not to long ago at 19 and the people still have the other one they got who is 11 and still going strong.

Welcome Danno!! Not only was all that considered normal, but desirable. Now you need to be a gender confused, race confused, safe space seeking eco nut to be considered "normal"

Sort of reminds me of a movie years ago called "Wrong is Right" about a world turned upside down, much as it is now where abortion at birth is holy and honorable and referring to a girl child as "she" is a crime.

I live on a dead end road, out in the country, (the perfect place, many feel to dump their unwanted animals.) I now have 4 dogs, all "gifts" from someone who left them to starve. One winter I had 14, although 5 were a mother and 4 pups. I found homes for the pups, the mother, my Ginger is still here sharing my life. When I approached her, she wanted attention more than the food I had. It is shameful to leave an animal to starve.

It certainly is but then I really believe God made dogs so we would have something to aspire too.

Not only are they literally confiscating weapons they have no right to, but they expect those law-abiding gun owners to fill out the forms for them. Guess what you are if you should decline their generous offer to separate you from your property. That's right - a criminal, subject to all the penalties your 'crime' warrants under law.
