  • He is learning to use buttons to “speak.” This one is asking for a treat (the audio isn’t great)

    wild dogs or dog like animals like wolfs also don´t need a human who gives them orders. they can live on their own.

    I only understand that some dogs can do different professions/tasks when trained for that.

    He’s trained to “speak” with the buttons so I have a better understanding of what he wants so I can provide it to him better.
    The whole purpose of training dogs is so we have a better working relationship with each other. It benefits people and dogs. They are way smarter than people think!

    Cats and dogs have totally different instincts and personalities. Dogs have also been domesticated longer than cats. I don’t know a whole lot about cats but my friend who loves cats told me that he doesn’t think they’re fully domesticated.
    Parents: please be aware and careful of what your kids are doing on social media. I've heard too many stories lately about absolutely terrifying things happening as a result of children using apps like tiktok. I don't think anyone wants to see their kids end up in the situations that I was in as a child, and we didn't even have social media back then.

    Abuse, torture, human trafficking, and sexual assault are the most HORRIFIC things that can happen to a child and it will mess up the rest of their lives and give them crippling PTSD. Please don't let your kids post or view inappropriate content or give away their locations on social media. And that's without going down the rabbit hole of what tiktok and Instagram do to young people's mental health.
    A neighbor’s fire alarm just made me jump out of my skin. It stopped going off after less than 30 seconds though. It’s bad enough that I’m making dinner at 2:30 in the morning.
    I’m so damn tired of people telling me I’m too sensitive and that I’m weak because I get offended by stuff. I’m a sensitive, empathetic person. It’s not my fault that no one feels empathy anymore.

    I hate it too. Lack of emotional empathy is so common among nt people.

    @Luca I feel the same way. I had to deal with two insensitive older brothers who used to torment me because of my emotional sensitivity. Sometimes I wonder why certain people are empathetic while others can be so cold. Unfortunately, that’s the way it is. So, I decided that I am not going to let people like that bother me. I regard empathy as a gift. And you have this beautiful gift.
    My friends are in a bad mood because I kept winning a trivia game. It took the fun out of it I guess.
    I’m not as dumb as everyone thinks I am.

    I winned, but everyone looked a bit pissed at me. but I was the only one who played the game correctly. and it riled me that they were so bad loosers. I have no problem to loose in a game. it´s just a game. lol.

    Its interesting how we can be intelligent enougth to win games and dumb enougth to not lose on purpose so others can win too and feel fine with us. It happens to me a lot

    I think Jeopardy's Ken Jennings just gave Luca a high-five. :cool:
    I was hanging out with one of my best friends and her kids today, plus all my dogs and one extra kid (another friend’s) so I’m about to sleep for the rest of the day lol. I had an amazing time though.

    Everyone says I’m incredibly good with kids. I’m a kid magnet just like I’m a dog magnet lol

    Sounds like both a very fun and tiring time! I like kids as well, i can be as silly as i want with them.
    You know, maybe it’s just better for me to not talk to my parents anymore. My mom did something to me tonight that was so humiliating that it’s pretty much unforgivable. For all those years that they were so nice and kind and supportive to me, was it all fake?

    That's pretty awful is what it is. Infantilization is real, and for a lot of adult autistics especially the higher-functioning ones, it never goes away until they really figure out on their own. Some never do.

    Parents also have their limitations.

    you´re very adult luca. and yes your examples show that.
    My parents have used me moving out and living on my own as an excuse to wash their hands of me and not have much to do with me anymore. It really bothers me that they think I’m such a burden and they’re resentful of all the support they had to give me.

    I think you can not bring someone to love you. love (when it´s honest) has to be there on it´s own and when it´s not their, you can not change that. I think you don´t need their recognition. there are and there will be always people who love you.

    My friends are like family to me (the ones that don’t act like idiots most of the time lol) and I don’t date so I’m not interested in having a partner.

    I get this. Same with me too. The minute l had a opportunity to leave, age 17, out the door. I was told l had to take the nanny job. So l finished my last year of high school working and finishing up school.
    I didn’t think Yung Gravy was a real rapper. I really thought he was supposed to be satire. Lol
    I clearly live under a rock.

    Anyone who calls themselves Yung Gravy is satire. :) Where do they get these silly names from.

    when Luca would start rapping, she probably would call herself "Lil Luca" : P

    No need to be so self-critical.

    Hey...I stopped listening to most popular music after 1989. My bad! ;)
    Did a training session with my friend’s Malinois puppy today. These are the smartest dogs on the planet imo. But they need constant mental stimulation.

    He doesn’t sleep for long.

    These guys are used primarily as police/military dogs. This one is going to be a working farm dog and guard dog, and do Obedience trials and Schutzhund. My friend (his owner) used to have working Boxer dogs and German Shepherds.

    I feel you, I have practically turned into a vampire this summer, it's just too hot :(
    Scented candles seem to have solved the dog stench problem in my house. I didn’t light them but the smell is strong enough on its own. They are from the dollar store lol

    "what..it's just my dogs...."
    Someone told me that they can’t feel sympathy for me because I don’t have self-confidence. Maybe they’re right.
    Gerontius
    Gerontius
    You literally show dogs as a hobby. That takes confidence, and you've proven yourself & your dogs by raising a few champions.
    Some people just have a hard time with feeling sympathy anyway. I think you're in a location without a lot of emotional maturity in it.

    Don't let people tell you what you have and what you don't. They don't inhabit your body so how would they know?
    My social battery is dead after this weekend. And that’s saying something because I’m an extrovert!! Plus my friends made a huge mess in my house and it took me until 3pm today to fix it. I could never handle having a roommate or a significant other.
    Forest Cat
    Forest Cat
    Sure you could handle a roommate, you just need to make sure it's a housebroken roommate. ;) One of those non-messy ones. And fun parties are usually messy, blankets can be washed, fridges can be cleaned and chaos can be fixed. I think the important thing is if you had fun.

    maybe you can transfer your skills in educating dogs to humans lol

    This is a house after a fun party, be happy yours doesn't look like this. :) It's called "The whole house".

    You tell me to trust you, swear to God I'll try to,
    I still got some scars from the last time

    The song that this is from has swears in it so I can’t link it. But this is how I feel about all of the people who are currently in my life

    My brain: "This....isn't....Michael Stipe...huh? " :confused:
    The housewarming party is going so much better than expected. And I finally get to have a sleepover with my girl friends! :D That was an experience I never got to have growing up.

    That's an excellent development, Luca; glad you're having fun.
