Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Dog Dog's mystery illness solved by intern

Ollie, a 10-year-old Sheltie from Portland, Oregon, was moments from being euthanized when a veterinary intern spotted the problem that left the dog fighting for his life.
The dog's owners had a tough decision to make when his health started to rapidly deteriorate. Ollie wasn't eating or drinking, he couldn't eliminate on his own and was almost completely paralyzed.
After multiple tests and no sign of a solution, Ollie's owners, Al and Joelle Meteney, decided it was time to end his suffering.

Sharp intern.

Glad that Ollie got a new lease on life.

I had a sheltie when I was a kid. Tough dang dog. He almost died more times than I can count.

He was hit by a car. Poisoned (by drinking from a puddle that probably contained anti freeze, we think) at a rest area when we were traveling. Rattlesnake bit several times, and was beat up by coyotes and got bad foxtails in California. There was also a house my parents rented that turned out to have a bad tick infestation. Poor dog got all covered in ticks and picking them off him was a daily chore. It seemed no tick dip would get rid of them. I was glad when we finally moved out of that place.

Nobody knows how old he was when we finally had to put him down, but we know he was at least pushing 20 yrs - and he was full grown when my aunt picked him up as a stray in Detroit, then moved with him to Florida, then finally brought him out to Arizona where she left him with my grandparents. We were staying with my grandparents and he adopted me and my brother and sisters, so went home with us for his last 15 years.

A friend of mine's lab had a softball size lump on her neck. The vet could not figure it out. A new vet found some sort of thorn in there and charged $900 to pull it out.

Our Papillon has lymes. I've been diagnosed with a tick born illness the docs don't care to diagnose. Good save on the pup!

to be tired...

Drs. are still missing Lyme disease in humans good save on that Collie pup for the Doc. Female friend in town here got Lyme disease and they missed it till symptoms got way worse. Now the pretty lady is a mess physically.
First discovered in Old Lyme Connecticut not far from our family home. If your of normal good health and start getting tired frequently don't be afraid to question your Dr. to check for the damn disease.
