    yeah they get to do pretty much what they want to do and the outdoor dog looks like it could be an akita
    had to separate the wolves due to fighting but the one that stays in my room has access in and out 24/7
    i just leave one of the doors open w a full magnetic door screen which i'm told leaves my room at crypt temps but hey its our cave
    she has a super plush bed at the foot of the bed which is typically where i find her in the morning
    neither one would ever think of climbing on any of the furniture though as that is not a dog's place and we have that understanding
    as well as not staring at me while i'm eating cause beggars don't get rewarded around here!
    other than that its a pretty decent existence
    i would imagine you have a dag or two out there in Kentucky by now?

    I'll probably rescue my next dogs as much as i hate to consider losing the ones i have
    doing research on akitas there's quite a few rescues and people just don't know how work w them so i see beautiful animals i know i could save
    but the difference between you and i is that you have young children and puppies and kids go together
    i really wanted to get an Australian shepherd a few years back but my daughter didn't like the eyes
    between those and border collies you're tapping into the top of the intelligent breeds and need to be on your game
    if you can get one of those breeds for $500 i wouldn't hesitate to make one a part of your pack
    worst part is everyone falls in love and then has their heart broken but that's life in a nutshell right?
    definitely think you should go w a pup and follow your instinct on breed
    oh and do your research on breed specifics as there are hundreds of groups and sources
    if i had done mine i would never have put two female akitas together

    We have a border collie/aussie mix. 3/4 border, 1/4 aussie. She looks mostly like a border collie, just a little less lean. She's a great dog - very smart. Loves people. Socially awkward around other dogs - likely because she hasn't had a lot of exposure to them. I'd trust her unequivocally around young kids. She's never even got close to biting anyone or even a peep of a growl from her. But she needs outdoor time every day, and lots of it. She does well with routine. We go out every morning and feed the chickens, and she's right there with me as if it's her job, even though she's not really doing anything. Well maybe she feels she's standing guard. As a pup she'd chase the hens, but now she sits among them with no issues. Then I'll go tend to my fruit trees and she follows me around. I know she's waiting until I grab her frisbee and that's when she gets most of her exercise. I can fling it as far as possible and she'll still retrieve it, and she's great at catching in on the fly if I give it enough hang time. I'm usually the one that tires first, even though she's doing most of the work. Great dog, as I said, but we have five acres and I don't know if she'd be happy if it was much less than that. I guess the alternative would be daily walks, but this is certainly not a breed to be house bound or cooped up in a small yard. If you feel you can give it the space and/or daily attention it needs, then I say it'd be a good choice.

    Does ending an engagement on Valentine's Day of all days make me a massive asshole?

    Sometimes you just reach a breaking point and the day on the calendar becomes irrelevant...

    not at all
    valentines day is one of many superfluous made-up holidays perpetuated by hallmark and others
    if we want to give our women something it should be because we want to, not because we’re guilted into doing it
    birthdays and christmas are different than these manufactured holidays

    side note:
    my birthday is feb 16
    when i was a teen, i used to break up with gf’s before valentines day to avoid getting them something and then spend feb 15 making up with them to ensure i got my bday present
    resourceful
