Too bad we're not just a hop and a skip from each other. It would be nice to meet you guys.

Well if anyone comes through Chattanooga or Atlanta give me a heads up and we will see what we can do. I have been able to meet up with a couple of guys from Techist over the years, one in Chattanooga and the other in Dallas as I came through years ago.

I don't know if I can travel anywhere anymore. My office is starting to look like a drug store. Even oxygen... getting old is such a b*tech. Doctors told me no travel long distance. They want me to stick around here for now...sucks...

The only reason I go anywhere is stores and doctor. I outlived practically all my friends but most of them died in Vietnam.

I live on the other side of the world and my old folks and younger sisters depend on me. I can't even go fishing for one day haha! Not to mention that I financially suck. Wahaha! I can still watch cartoons and play video games, tho. I love cartoons and video games.

My wife and I are currently about 450 miles from home staying at a hotel/casino. She got a "free" trip for 2 (round-trip airfare and 4 nights hotel stay). Even though the flight and hotel are free, this trip is costing me a bundle. We need to cover all of our meals and entertainment plus my wife keeps feeding the slot machines! We've been here since Monday and are are due to return home tomorrow.

That's a pretty good outcome I'd say. It's a shame about your cat but it's good that the dog ended up well.

My son took the dog to the sanctuary yesterday. They seem pretty positive that they will be able to find him a home with no other animals with room for him to run around. Other than the dog's propensity to attack smaller animals, he's really a pretty good dog and has never shown any aggression toward humans.

They're well known to be aggressive toward small animals. You should know that.

What about babies or being protective against other humans?


Dunno guys, but if I understand the proverb "it's all fun and games until someone loses an eye" well enough, I don't think it's a good idea to keep such a dog with humans as a inside home pet. I could be wrong, tho.

As I said before, they are unpredictable. All animals are dumb as a two year old human and no matter how well you train them, their animal instinct kicks in.
