is it safe? can we come out and play now?

I LOVE YOU ALL. you are one of the most wonderful communities I am involved in, because everyone has great dogs and no one slams anyone for anything. Honestly, just defenses get raised. I just want to toast you all! and send you hugs and kisses from us :)

Awwwww Lucy!!! Ashton and I <3 you and Lucy, too.

In any family, even our little online families, arguements are going to happen, but we can prevent them or make them less painful.

I agree - this community is the best! I have gotten so much great advice and it is great to have a place for Harley and I to meet other boston lovers. :)

comparing it to some of the other communities i am involved in because of my pets, this one is so positive and upbeat, i have no fear posting what i know and asking questions becuase everyone will be honest and not yell at me for being stupid or doing everything wrong becuase its not how THEY would do it. it makes me feel warm and fuzzy and I feel like i know everyone here so much better than in the other places.

Definately this community isn't that bad for arguments and drama. Again, some other small furry animal communities I belonged to were just aweful and depressing to be a part of, cause they made you feel like a monster for everything you did wrong. And let's face it, our babies don't come with instruction manuals and sometimes you make a mistake when taking care of them or whatnot! But that's why this community is so great because you can come for advice and really get advice!! So cheers to us!!

damn straight! party over here!

i've been in almost tears at some of the things that have been said to me and other members of a feathered community I am involved in.

there is no absolute right way to deal with our furry babies and it can get heated sometimes.. but generally here I feel love not hate.

Another thing I like about this community is that I can post here without my post being torn apart and disected and discussed to death and the end result is my laptop swimming in a sea of tears. That happened to me once, I posted something in another community, something benign and trivial (I don't even remember what) and someone disected it to the point that their conclusion was that I was endangering my babies!! I was horrified. But this community I feel totally comfortable in, I value other people's opinions because it is crystal clear that everyone here has only the best interests of our babies in mind, and it's really ***FUN*** to look at the pics of everyone's babies!! I think that's one of the most important things about a community, is that you have FUN being a part of it! :)

that happens to people all the time in my feathered community.. something innocent like letting your parrot play with a q-tip or feeding your bird people food (which is completely acceptable) everyone goes nuts and makes people cry. its ridiculous. LJ is so you can discuss stuff and learn and make friends and most importantly its supposed to be fun,a nd those communities are def. NOT FUN.

I would call that "just fishing"... a person makes a rude comment to another persons post. When the first person responds (they "JF) sets the hook and sends out another jab. If the first person responds it may go on ..but..At that point I go away. No use having our keyboards soaking in tears created by someone that is "just fishing"
I thank you for your past encouragement to me on my post.
You are also brave. *: ) this is a fun site!

Oh my gosh... that is the cutest thing I've seen all day (I mean, I just woke up, but still!!!!!!). :)
Sara Raesarakenobi on January 6th, 2005 05:12 am (UTC)
Lucy got a bath yesterday and she was FREEZING (lord knows WHY being that we live in NC and the weather has been absolutely beautiful lately) so we wrapped her in her fleece blankets :)

Awww... when Corny gets a bath, I wrap him in his towel and then in a blanket over that (and then he has no escape from being snuggled). :):)
Sara Raesarakenobi on January 6th, 2005 07:26 am (UTC)
Lucy generally gets ultra hyper after a bath and wants to play, but iw as watching tv and she jumped into my lap and started shivering so i grabbed some blankets and she snuggled up in them and then stood up and twisted around and then popped her head out and we took a picture :)
