I hate it when people pick on animals, children or the disabled! I have always stuck up for anyone one who can't defend themselves. when I was a senior in highschool, one day on the schoolbus. I got so sick of this troublemaking 14yr old, kid named danny picking on a 6yr girl and "playing the slapping game" he hurt her so she started crying and he kept picking on her after I had already warn him once. so I walked up to danny and said, "do you know what it's like to have someone older than you pick on you and hit you?" he said "no, you ain't gonna do anything", i said "wanna bet???" and punched him right on the arm and warned him if i ever saw him picking on someone, he'd better watch out!!. I then looked at the bus driver, smiled and sat with danny for the rest of the ride, i gave him a huge bruise (I've grown up on a dairy farm so i'm pretty strong) and from that day on he never picked on her again! especially if i was on the bus! it was great!!! haha but yeah, i don't like it when people and pets get hurt or picked on and can't defend themselves.

Good for you for standing up for that little girl!! Too many times I've seen people stand by and do nothing while someone gets picked on.

My boss gets my goat. He is the head of the facility. On Monday after everyone is gone for the day he sends an email to the department heads stating he will on vacation until the middle of next week. No advanced heads up. Now nothing gets done until he gets back. We can't get approvals or any checks signed. Everything comes to a screeching halt. I doubt he would tolerate that lack of notice from his employees. We know it's not an emergency. He does this all the time. So rude! Thanks for listening.

Yeah, most service dogs have those on their vest. But, Joey is In Training so his vest says "Service dog in training"

"Whoever said fish were low maintenance obviously never owned fish"

They should add "do not pet' to that vest.
