    I had a foster dog in my house (mainly because I was the one who could get to him in timely manner) He was chucked outta a home (get this thing outta here NOW) on the claim he and snapped at /lunged at the 13 yr old son. he was totally non-agressive - they only senerio I can buy is he was pushed into a total panic or being hurt. Working with breed rescue they claimed that they get a lot of this as total fabrication and an excuse to get rid of dog. one "home" went through 5 dogs all of which were claimed to have actually bitten the child before the "blacklist this owner" message got around enough to prevent him getting #6. how in the world do rescues deal?

  • Was this really too old?

    I froze a leg and a piece of breast meat from x-mas turkey and just used it in work lunches. This was greeted with horror at work hugh? this after growing up on a farm with home grown butchered meat going a year or more in freezer regularly. Have freezers become less effective?
