“Once again, BN is behind the curve. All of my college textbooks are available in digital format. I have no need to visit a bookstore to get them. The only people in bookstores nowadays aren't there to buy - - browsers, loafers and homeless looking for a bathroom.”

“I agree. The passing of the family pet is often the first time a child experiences death and parents can make it a positive learning opportunity if handled properly. It will build a healthy psychological foundation for the child when facing future deaths.”

“I can see how you'd be confused. Martin had so much material he had to separate the it into two books, and both A Dance with Dragons, and Feast for Crow's happens concurrently, but the timeline merges's midway through DwD. Too each their own, but I think the story's awesome and can't wait for it too continue. Then again, two double cheesburgers with a large fry is awesome as well. May not be that healthy... and it may not be high cuisine.... but do I think it hit's the spot when I just want a 'gut bomb'..... hell yeah.”

“You sound like Dan Quayle getting mad at Murphy Brown for having a child out of wedlock. She wasn't real, nor is Don Draper, and just because he is a man, does not mean that he is allowed to be objectified like women are. You can't have double standards, because it isn't fair. Women are tired of it, and men can get tired of it, too.”

“Your statement is not based on facts. I am a veterinary nurse and no breed is more prone to bite than any other breed. I know plenty of sweet pitbulls and rotweillers. I also know and plenty of vicious chihuahuas and poodles.”

“Yup! Took my German Shepherd to the dog park and she was attacked by 3 jack russells. She laid there and let them bite her. Yet, the owner called my dog vicious... That's not to say that my dog isn't dominant and she does lose her cool around some dogs (Product of being abused by former owner), and I'll never say she won't bite. She might... but not as long as I'm around and I'll never let her out of the house w/o supervision... not even in our back yard, nothing is stopping 90lbs of muscle from busting through the fence and chasing something. Taking responsibility of my pet!”

nickygrangery on Apr 7, 2014 at 06:46:18

“That goes against all statistics ???? How can you make that claim because 'you are a veterinary nurse" and haven't been bitten by one? Ok, so the statistics which say they are many, many times more responsible for dog bite fatalities are just to be ignored. Thats insane . You look at the proportion of pit bulls in circulation compared to the general dog population. (*about 5% and rising) Then look at the dog bite fatality figures and do the maths surely. But hey, forget the statistics, forget the children killed at a rate of about one a week....they haven't bit this nurse (yet)”

Lisa SpomerKrasnoff on Apr 4, 2014 at 18:47:55

“That may be true, but neither a chihuahua nor a poodle nor a Yorkie could maul a person, especially a child, to death.”

Bluest on Apr 3, 2014 at 22:20:37

“So your sample size are the dogs that go to your office? Gotcha.

Obviously, those dogs are well taken care of if they're at the vets. But what about strays? or that ones that pretty much go feral because of neglect. Left to their own devices, some dogs will be more aggressive -period. Because it's genetics! And those traits can come out anytime.

Like I said, I believe dogs are individuals and a lot of it depends on how you take care of them. But that doesn't change statistics.

KNOW your dog's breed. Don't be careless. Don't be in denial and you'll be a better owner.”
