I actually love this forum and have recieved a lot of great advise & help from many people who I probably will never meet but who seem very sincere about what they are doing and saying to all of us. And the pictures.....well, they just speak for themselves! I just got a funny visual...Golden retrievers sitting at their computers looking up the Human Forum to figure us out!

I can't agree with any of the statements so I didn't vote. I don't think that anyone is truly 'looney' or stupid, I just think that everyone has their own opinions and their own way of thinking/writing. I like it :)

I think a few are truly nuts or just dramatic and bitter, but mostly it's a fabulous group and I love it here. I have made many wonderful friends! This group can do amazing things, including some of the people that I personally don't care for. Everyone has something to offer.

I think what's unique about this forum is that in a big sense it's like family. We all have a common bond and care about the well being of the others. We chat, offer advice ( which is or is not well taken.... just like family), there are some younger, some older, some ancient ( like me), some funny, some serious, some ..... some... some of about everything. There can be disagreements and even hurt feelings... just like family. But just let the word out that you're in trouble, need prayers, etc. and you've got tons of support. As a group, we've transported dogs across the country (even to Canada), provided Christmas to a member in need, hugged, cried and celebrated together. Our dogs brought us together, and in the meantime we've forged something new and something to be cherished.

I voted "One or two's elevators don't go to the top floor, if you know what I mean. "

I know I'm one of them; who the other one is remains to be seen :yes:

Hey, I voted, but what I was wondering is if it was okay for us truly psychotic people to vote for ourselves????

When I compare this board to some forums I've been on...this is a darn nice board with a great group of people. It can be really rough out there in forum world! Maybe it's the dogs that give us a common bond, or yummy recipes that show up every now and then, but there's definately a kinder/gentler feel to this forum.

I couldn't bring myself to vote for each and every one a saint...that wouldn't be any fun as a little bit of ruckus rousing adds a little spark. Phoebe is such a sweet, darling golden, but if she didn't do a little counter surfing or lose the phone in the backyard...swallow a stick of butter, eat the money DH left on the car seat...vomit up a sock...have to swallow hydrogen peroxide in order to bring up a maxi pad (it was hers...silly doggy diapers when she went through her first heat..and yes spayed thereafter, it was a slow growth thing), eat my camera, sneak chunks of wood chips into the house, kill all stuffy toys in seconds flat, spin in circles for breakfast and dinner instead of sitting quietly...give a big loud sigh and snort when she wants me to know she's not happy with me...if she didn't do the rascal stuff..well..life's a little more interesting cuz she does. Same with the forum.
