  11. Show Us Your Pets

    Neither did I, but once we got to talking about it with people in the area, the stories really started coming out. It's scary enough for me to consider getting a rifle, for the first time in my life, and I hate guns in general. I've got two young children (a girl almost four and a boy a year and a half), and having someone tell me they had a beaver come onto their lawn after them has got me paranoid.
  12. Dream Car

    Nice. My two brothers had a '68 Dart for their first car. It was only a slant-six Dart, but it was still pretty awesome in Orange with a flat black band round the trunk/rear quarter.
  13. Show Us Your Pets

    Good to see lots of pet people in here. Sad to hear about those who've lost theirs, though. We've got two dogs and two cats right now, and hopefully won't ever have this many pets again. I'm not a Cat person, and so made this house rule with my wife that for every cat she gets, I get a dog. Now we have a zoo. Anyway, our first 'kid' was Buffy, a 6 year old German Shepherd. She's just an amazing animal, who listens very well and is very smart. Trainable is an understatement. She's so good that we don't even have to tie her up during the day when we're not home (2 days a week both my wife and I work), and she'll always be there on the doorstep to meet us when we get home. She's a barker (I trained her that way, since we got her when we lived in the city and wanted a guard dog of sorts), but never EVER uses her teeth when dealing with people. She also doesn't jump up, unless she's really excited to see you. Oz (Ozwald) is our two+ year old Staffordshire mix that we got from a shelter a few years ago. He was wild when they picked him up, so he's a bit of a scavenger and a snoop, so we can't leave him untied, sadly. He's the kind of dog who has no fear of the highway, and I've lost too many dogs that way growing up. Awesome personality, and incredibly affectionate to every person he's come across yet. He does have a fear of men, though, which is why I think he was on his own to begin with. To this day, if I stand over him some days and bend down even to pet him, he tries to piss. Great dog, though, even if he does get into the compost way too much. Here he is after recently being attacked by a Beaver at the corner of our property. Vicious buggers. He looks odd, but he was still pretty stoned. They got Buffy a few months later in the belly, and she needed 15 stitches. It tried to drown her too, as she puked up half the brook on our kitchen floor. Oz also got hit that time, trying to draw it away from Buff, but he only got a slash in the chest that looked like a nickel sized hole. Happier days.

Now she's fat and ill tempered. I can't seem to find a picture of Willow, our orange tabby that we rescued from under our old porch in the middle of January. She's actually kind of cute, now almost as old as Oz, but is getting fat herself. We get along.
  14. Whats The Average Weekly Wage Here?

    HAHAHHA! Sounds good. I've actually done the reverse, before. Calling a Kiwi an Australian at a party once. He reminded me he was from New Zealand, and I started apologising. "That would be like calling me an American. I might have to get wooly with ye if you did that."
  15. Whats The Average Weekly Wage Here?

    Hey. Let's not be throwing around insults here. Canada is NOT part of the US. Or should I start calling you a Kiwi? Things are more expensive here than in the States as well, though not as much. And like I said, I did the conversion to see what I was making in AUD. Thanks for fixing the poll, BTW. Now us poor folk who own their own businesses and have a full time job besides can vote.
