        Better to lose $35 than your health being lost.

      My small dog Linda is indeed a purebred Portuguese Podengo, according to the US breed club for Podengos. I was correct. Lol
      1. crewlucaa_
        crewlucaa_
        Coincidentally, Podengos (the larger variety) and Dogo Argentinos often hunt in packs together in Portugal. So I have two breeds of dogs that are bred to work closely together. And I am Portuguese lol

      I should be sound asleep right now but I just spent the last hour patching my walls where my dogs have scratched it up with the furniture :(

        They always jump into this one chair that has a wood backing and it scratched a bunch of the paint off my living room wall. They also try to snatch stuff off the walls and leave claw marks in the process.

        He’s not a very friendly dog in general, he growls and shows teeth at kids and dogs and thinks everyone is an intruder, but he’s learned that he can’t get away with biting/snapping at me. He is a train wreck, but I think with constant training and affection he will improve. He trusts me now.

        I think it probably is stress related but I’m not sure. I probably do need a change of scenery or something.

        It snowed here too! I've only seen one other white Christmas in my life (26th of December, in South Carolina of all places) but now Connecticut is properly snowy--No precipitation says Christmas like snow.

      Entered my dogs in a dog show for the first time in about a year. The timing made it so it’s the biggest regional show though… high stakes

      The dentist said I have to get braces again in January because I didn’t use my retainer and my teeth got crooked again over the years :( :(

        Ignore the dentist. He has a deal with the orthodontist that he gets a kickback for everyone he refers.

        My daughter has a beautiful straight smile, and the dentist has been saying for her to get braces for years.

        Oh, that sucks! I got off braces about four months ago (age 29) and my dentist said I have to use the retained all the time for now, but sometimes I forget it. I hurts a bit if I don't wear it for too many hours.

      I should probably stop trying to justify and defend my parents when they’re actually gaslighting me.
      1. crewlucaa_
        crewlucaa_
        To clarify, they’re not always like that, it’s in really specific arguments about things I’ve called them out for that they don’t like/don’t realize. But that sounds like I’m defending them again :/ I refuse to believe that they’re abusive because they did save me from extreme abuse. They can be really wonderful. But I don’t think they know much about PTSD.
