First of all...Back off My Doodles!!! I would kill for any one of them. They are so much my life I cannot imagine my life without each of them...even the Chi-doodle. LOL
You know I have told you before that your perfect Dood is out there and you will find each other. Yes, keep trying. You know...doing the listings would put you on the front lines of the dogs being posted. HINT...HINT! LOL
1) I just friended the rescue head, but you should send an email on Janie. Mention you are a lister for OodlesofDoodles.org and fell in love. Ask if they can transport to where you are. Don't wait, she will go fast.
2) I would love to have you onboard with us. Work as much or as little as you can. Let me know when you are ready. Weekends, I have tons of time...just let me know.
3) SHE won't be happy, no matter what I do. Plus, when I first brought the site back up, I asked the members for advice. I gave them the opportunity to leave, and offered to help them delete their stuff. Many people sent me notes about a pattern with HER of experiences they had with her and over 1300 stayed. I send out the Weekly newsletter, so no-one can say they don't know what is going on. I try to be open with people and SHE likes to be in charge. The core of us talked about it a lot in the beginning and decided to do our own thing. SHE doesn't scare me, as I have copies of everything, well, my lawyer does. I do have a Harassment case but as far as I am concerned, SHE is cutting her own throat. We are doing good and we are getting noticed for it. Never fear someone like HER. SHE is HER own worst enemy.
So, if you want me to stop now...it's too late. SHE can't hurt us. HER lies are being seen by many. We are moving forward and SHE can kiss our dust. LOL Love you and let me know when you are ready. Email about Janie. <3 U
I hope all is well with the kids, now. That is scary when our children are sick. Mine, Thankfully, only had one stint in the hospital as kids and I know how much that scared us. I send you hugs of strength to get through all that.
Did you get to check the Whoodle today? I so wish for a dog for you and your family. I know I could never live my life without a dog (or two or three). Your doggie is out there, I hope he finds you soon.
I am STILL being harassed by my ex-partner. You would think six months would be cause enough for her to move on and leave us alone. But I suppose some people can't let other people be happy if they are not. Her loss. We have some exciting news coming very soon and I hope you know you are part of our little family here...always. I will never forget how you stood up for me when you were approached by THEM. Some are still here, maybe they will see what a real "collective" looks like. LOL Keep in touch, kiddo and don't be a stranger. Sending hugs and hopes for you and yours.
Awh, I know what twin little one's are like. And I was involved with my local twins club when mine were young. I was the Librarian for the club for a couple years. That is important work you're doing and we completely understand. We still want to keep you around and hope you will stay with us.
As far as hubby, mine has grouched through all 5 dogs but loves every one. They come around once they see those eyes. Your prefect doodle is out there and coming, you just have to be open to the right time. You have put your desires to have that doodle into the universe and he or she will be there when you look. You are always welcome here no matter what.
You are the first new member to join us after the break up and you didn't believe the lies and slander against me. I will never forget that. Many people who were my friends for years believed it and left. The many who did not leave and those friends like Deb, Sue, Susan and Jeannine, who stayed with me and YOU will always be very important to me. You all gave me the strength to do this and we are building something really good here that no-one can lie about.
You do as much or as little as you can, just check in once in awhile to say HI and let us know you're OK. We can talk about kids too you know...or husbands. LOL We can start a complain about the spouse discussion in the Coffee House and figure out how to convince them that a Doodle is what THEY really need. Sending hugs!
Kris, I hope if anyone ever bashes or is hurtful to you in any way, you will say something to me. I will not allow that behavior here anymore.
It is a bit funny that we all got caught up in what we believed was a good way to help save dogs, talk about how important it is to rescue and learn from each other. What we got instead was a tyrannical, self promoting and self important group of people who believed it was OK to talk down to people, be nasty to people who were tying to help and accusations and lies thrown at people who did not agree with them. It's funny but last night I saw on another forum, they were likened to a cult and that is so close to what they are. They have convinced good people that they are good...until you disagree with them, of course. Or another analogy is the school yard, mean girls. They are still at it but we are determined to move ahead, be positive and not let them get us down.
I am very glad that you feel comfortable here and hope you always will be and never feel like you can't speak your mind. Even if I don't agree with you, your opinion will always be valued.
