My parents are starting to admit how much they actually resent me because of my autism and how much they had to do for me growing up. :( Jul 2, 2022 at 4:05 PM

      Why are people so mean? I went hiking with my dogs and I said hi to a lady with her dogs, and she treated me like I’m garbage.

        But that goes for lots of different cultures as well. It’s just interesting to me that the vast majority of ASD people I’ve come across (online and irl) are Caucasian.

        My best friend is from Poland and his family is very traditional and doesn’t seem to understand much about my Aspergers diagnosis… they mostly treat me like I’m always being rude or nosy. But I don’t know enough about their culture to know if that’s typical.

        You won`t belive this but my mother once found me in the kitchen in the middle of the night. I had removed the cheese from the fridge and placed that on the kitchen table. And when she found me, I was trying hard to stuff my blanket into the fridge... :) I had a very active night life, so much sleep walking.

        We had a poodle that was pretty good camping with us, staying in the tent vestibule at night. One time in Indiana we were woken up by a horrible smell. Evidently he got out and found a pig farm. It was too cold to wash him in the nearby creek, so all we could do is put him in a garbage bag secured at the neck. Driving several hours home and we rode with all the windows down with the pooch in the back seat.

        But it's all right; I have been very much enjoying the wildlife "on the hoof" as much as on the plate, and birdwatching is becoming a favorite activity again so I guess even without a gun or a hunting-license I will always be hunting one way or another. Maybe I should bring a camera.

        I love photographing wildlife too… and would never shoot anything that I was not going to eat or that couldn’t be useful in some way. I don’t like when hunters are wasteful… very disrespectful to the environment.

        I will send you some of my wildlife pics actually. Some are game birds and other native species here, and some are more exotic species from wildlife conservation parks. I try to find a balance between loving all animals, eating some, and hunting ones that are invasive, overpopulated and edible.

        Some breeds are bigger clowns than others. If you ever have an English Bull Terrier shaped space Crewlucaa_ I advise you get one. They will challenge your training skills and your patience. You have to out-stubborn the stubborn. ;)

        Blow dryer :) One meant for dogs. Long coated and double coated dogs, I always blow out after I wash them. Single coated dogs (like Pointers and Dogos) I towel and air dry. I will occasionally use the blower on them if I use waterless shampoo. Curly coated dogs (like Poodles and Portuguese Water Dogs) I blow dry as well.

        My cat also protests when he sees the box. He can't stand driving and will lose control over his stool. So, whenever I visit the vet I have to take a walk with a very heavy cat in a box :D

        You've had a busy last couple of days. Bit of a situation on here, lot of work with the dog training, some bad weather, and of course that crazy phone call from that one person. Course you're having a more sober kind of day...they're just a part of thinking long enough to reflect.

        My living situation right now is temporary. I’m looking at buying a bigger property with an indoor/outdoor training facility. And an adjacent kennel area (I do not kennel dogs outdoors. And all my dogs are house dogs too and sleep in my bed.)
        I only plan on being in my current house for another 6 months to a year. It is not fair for me or the dogs.

        If the puppy gets a 4 or 5 point major (15 points is a Champion) she will be one third of the way there. She is 10 months old and has not been campaigned until now.
