Re: what's a social butterfly ?

Well, gee Rick, we all came out and played nice and answered your questions, and then you duck out of the thread you started saying you don't want to play anymore, but we're all wrong about it anyway.

If the point was to get a good discussion going, then throw out your opinion and let's have at it. Otherwise, why bother asking the questions?

this thread's a wrap for me
Good God rick, what is it now? Do your feelings and emotions change with the moon or something? Knock it off already and finish what you started.

I will echo Leslie and Nicole. We have a saying in the trailing world.... "the bullshit stops when the tailgate drops".

I'm waiting for your tailgate to drop.

Is that so?

Here I thought you were all done with this and then you come back with that?

In closing, and just for the record, I'm forever going to think of your typing style as the illusive "hand slut". You never know if he's coming or going. First, he gets you all worked up with, then leaves you hanging, then he comes back unable to help himself. Closer he brings the story to conclusion and then …. Shall I go on? Cause I can.

I had to laugh when I read this as it reminds me of a guy having bedroom performance issues.

Re: what's a social butterfly ?

Leslie : "Well, gee Rick, we all came out and played nice and answered your questions, and then you duck out of the thread you started saying you don't want to play anymore, but we're all wrong about it anyway. "

1. 'we all came out and played and answered your questions'
- really ??
one of my Q's was how do u define a social butterfly......your answer : a golden.....sorry Leslie, i don't consider that a definition by any stretch. but if you were playing, then i can understand why you might say i don't want to play
2. 'you started saying you don't want to play anymore, but we're all wrong about it anyway.'
- NEVER said that but please cut/paste what i wrote that made you think that i thought you guys are ALL WRONG about it
- for me it's just another example of reading between the lines but not paying attention to the lines that were written
(common here on the WDF...Sarah just gave an example on another thread.......did i jump all over and slam Gina and say "you're wrong" ?)

Sarah : i can't remember reading your definition of a social butterfly either. please cut/paste again if you wrote one and refresh my memory
- actually i don't even remember reading any answers to any of my Q's ... does that mean you too were playing but i wasn't ?

and did Matt, Misty, Bob, Howard, Khoi or Nicole give a definition ? they all responded to the thread, but mostly talked about their dogs. Khoi finally jumped in too //rotflmao//

i would think ALL of the above people are perfectly capable of coming up with a definition if they really wanted to

i've already sent my detailed views on the topic because i was serious about discussing a common issue that i think can be misunderstood as far as the genetic component vs the aspect of a trained behavior
.....to people who asked and were serious about hearing my viewpoint

- oddly enuff, no one wrote anything about the reasons except for "genetics" side
- i am definitely NOT the smartest knife in the drawer, but no one needed to remind me there was a genetic component, and that's why i POLITELY said i wanted to get beyond the obvious and why i was surprised that aspect was never brought up
......NO WAY SHAPE OR FORM WAS I STATING OR EVEN IMPLYING THAT YOU ARE ALL WRONG

amen

if you still wanna read my "mini book", PM me with serious answers to my Q's and convince me you're interested in my take on the subject and i'll be glad to shoot it to you

i'll try my best to ignore any more sarcasm here, but like a train wreck, i expect i'll read em anyway

sure, i often look at issues from a different perspective......but i rarely if EVER have i said anything remotely close to : "my way is the best way and you are wrong" ..... and i've posted a few thousand times on this forum !
- i can only remember taking that extreme of a view once

if anyone disagrees, then take Sarah's advice and stop the BS and quote when i have said that or even IMPLIED that...in ANY response i've ever posted
- it gets old to hear that crap, but for sure, i don't lose any sleep over it //rotflmao//

amen again, but don't take THAT word at face value ... i'm not religious //LOL//

Re: what's a social butterfly ?

Wait - I made a funny in my first response, but then went on in what I thought was the spirit of the post and using the dogs I know as examples, expanded on that thought. Is that not how this works here?

I don't want to read your answer in a PM. If you want to start threads on general subjects, why not give your opinion in the thread? I don't want to have to hunt you down for it. OShare it that we all may learn something. Even if I don't agree, I am interested in your point of view and maybe, by hashing it out with each other, someone, maybe even you or I, will learn something, or approach a training issue or problem dog in a different way. Or just shut up about it and let the thread die if it's not going the way you want it to and you don't care to share your pearls of wisdom with us.

Sarcasm, humour... kinda makes the board a fun place to drop into.

Re: what's a social butterfly ?

1. a dog that craves attention more times than not. Craves and demands close contact and/or attention

2. Neither good or bad. Unless it interferes with the job or task.

3. Genetic predisposition. Enhanced by association and/or training

And since you have said no one has described a social butterfly to your standard how about you post your definition. Because, clearly, we are not measuring up to your standard. Once you post that, then maybe we can hold up our end of the conversation because, clearly, you seem to have something particular in mind. Perhaps, if you post a video of your definition of a social butterfly we may finally see one. I'm still waiting for the tailgate to drop.....

Well, that's too bad. Cause if you were we'd at least:

1. have hope for you.
2. an explanation for your sermons.
