|You people are only guessing the reason this Dog was purchased for, and most of it is pure Crap talking,|
The Dog was bought to breed from that is certain, What becomes of it after its breeding life is over that is anyones guess probably no different to what happens to most older Dogs past there money making days are over with breeders in the USA and Europe.
One thing that makes me smile in these threads with you Americans is this. You are forever getting little digs in towards an older poster i being one myself, But i can assure you that i for one can still function very well above average in ALL departments.
I do wonder how you look at your Grandparents you must look down on them at times with pity for getting Old.
One day if you live that long you also will be a Grand daddy age, then if your mind is as sharp as mine is to think back of how you looked down at the older Person.
It is no good saying otherwise it has been bought up too often to deny that a lot on here seem to think older people are all senile and should be seen but not heard and in fact are a joke.
I do wonder where this world will finish up with some of you Guys in charge, a bloody good spell in the forces for both Men and Women in the front line would open your eyes and straighten many out. However most of you would never then reach the Grand daddy or Grand Ma age you would be dead.

|Pricey - Oh you are addressing me (Abby Normal) as Katrina???? Well that's a new one for you LOL, now I know it's true! you really have lost the plot. Ask Mr P, we went through this a long time ago (pm's and everything!), and he knows now who I am not, but he still hasn't found out who I am, (though he's still trying!!) so I guess for you and one or two others in the white and spiteful brigade it probably is quite hard to grasp LOL. Remember Pricey - me Abby Normal, you Priceless. |
I see your posts, as ever, have nothing whatever to do with the topic, you just come along and dish out a little nastiness. Grow up man for heavens sake.
Let's try and get you to actually comment on the content now.
Think it through first.....do you think China bought Larus (at a little under 6 yrs old) just for looking at, or do you think they bought him to breed from?

| Steve, so very true, old age comes to everyone and I for one am proud to be Granddad.|
Morning Katrina my little cup cake. Nasty I don't do, truthful, yes. I believe my comment on steaks was on topic as the topic was about why the Chinese had bought Larus? The topic then went on to suggest that he was bought to breed for the food chain, RIDICULOUS suggestion but none the less that was the topic of conversation. Or did you not read ALL the comments as usual? Just jump in there when you see a name you think you can stir up some shit with? Are you missing your usual sparring partner, noticed you just had to bring him into this thread, now that is obsessive, lol. And do please make your mind up, one minute I'm a Granda then I need to grow up!! PRICELESS!!
Now remember YOU Katrina, Me Bazza, lmfao.

|Thanks Steve....as I have a 16 year old grandchild along with 5 other grandchildren; as an American, I agree with you wholeheartedly. And I still work dogs!|

Then i guess you are around my age, The youngsters have been bought up to have much more than we had as Kids, In fact we had no toys at all only the ones we made for ourselves.
That taught us a great deal in respecting material things and people and certainly we were bought up to respect the older folk. But today all those values are gone, I guess it is Dog eat Dog so to speak with the last generation and the present one.
Not all but a great deal of those generations. However there time will come if they reach our age.
Glad to here you still enjoy the Dogs, Mine do not seem to bother that i am a oldster they work just the same.

|I am not young, though not yet a grand. My responsible 20 year old is not ready for that stage of life, and my other is much younger ;) I am a 43 model. I will reply about the rude comments made about my name in this post as well. Yes, 8 years into the gsd, I am still a newbie with the breed. I am new as yet to conformation shows. I am however not a newbie to working dogs and have done so in sar and other venues since the 1983 with a different breed. I just love how people call out rude things about me being a newb when their presence here is newer than mine. I just do not change names or have multiple personality disorder on here like so many others ;) Okay break time over back to work.|

Priceless - follow......the thread developed into whether or not Larus had been producing puppies (not for what reason). Dog1 suggested not. The facts presented by Jantie suggest differently, doing the math supports jantie's numbers. OK , here’s how it went:
Jantie As always, Dog1 has no clue.
Bazza: So there you have it folks.....a mad man on a mission and Katrina, that world wide renowned authoritarian on all things GSD, lmfao!! They have spoken so the rest can be quiet now, lol. Odd couple, don't ya think? But they do have a few things in common....a deep seated dislike for anything SV, breeders, show world and most importantly TUNNEL VISION, LOL.

|Just jump in there when you see a name you think you can stir up some shit with?|
Priceless, this is what you are doing every time you see me comment on a thread. Care to elaborate on this latest wild accusation and point out what name I 'thought' I could stir up some sh*t with???? I was expressing an opinion man - good grief. More than I can say for you, as you are just jumping in and stirring - like the last time whenever you see my name (which is Abby by the way, the only twist is on the second name, the significance of which has always escaped you!)
I can't understand why you seem unable grasp the fact that this is what these forums are for. People are allowed to comment on these threads. Whether you like them or agree with them is frankly, irrelevant, and there I see no cause to be so unpleasant.
I've said before, if you disagree, why don't you state why you disagree.
You behave like you're in the playground - You can't be in my gang if you don't do what I say........................priceless. I see you learned well at your masters knee with the BIG RED LETTERS LOL.
You still didn't answer the fundamental question, do you think China bought Larus to look at or breed from?
edited to add : in fact the original poster did not mention anything about the dog being sold to China and being eaten. That came from another poster later on.

|Katrina love, calm down and give your typing finger a rest. Now once again, for your benefit, My comment about why Larus was sold(old news by the way) was on topic. Before you turned this thread into all about you it was suggested the dog was for the food chain, breeding puppies for human consumption.|
"Many good friends of mine are breeders, some of them on here" LOL, that's why none of these so called breeder friends EVER come on and agree with any of the nonsense you type???? PRICELESS.
Now KATRINA you have 545 posts here since you accuse me of jumping in whenever I see your name could you link me to my 545 posts where I "jumped in"?
Normally when I see your name I read, laugh, shake my head, and ignore the crap you spew. But guaranteed 95% of your comments are on a thread that Videx starts or has contributed to. You and your ilk are one of the main reasons the UK members no longer post here!!!
And yes KATRINA I am fully aware that the forum is for opinions and comments and that includes mine, don't like it? TOUGH!!!
Finally Katrina I can't understand why you keep saying that ABBY is your name, and NORMAL you aint, lol. On second thoughts maybe I can understand why you keep denying you are called KATRINA. PRICELESS!!
You have a nice day KATRINA ya hear!!

I had a GREAT day, thank you! Typing finger all rested now having been at a 'show' all day today with a showline GSD no less (good heavens, whatever next).
On topic originally - no. On topic now - no, each answer like a wriggly worm. Please do feel free to continue to shake your head, laugh and do something else, I fear no-one will notice.
Not thinking it through again - breeders do not openly comment on 'contentious' issues or other breeders, it isn't good for 'friendly relations' at shows. PM's, emails and that good old fashioned thing, the phone on the other hand are still well used methods of communication.
Yes, it has been very pleasant on here lately (with the odd exception), I had noticed. I think that you attributing that to me is assuming that these people you speak of (and read their minds)pay much attention to my posts, and is attributing rather too much importance to me, I am sure some will be most offended by the suggestion LOL. Some may just be keeping a 'low profile' for reasons best known to themselves. I've also noticed the improvement since Ollie cleaned it up with mods.
So, who was the mad man you were referring to again?
by bazza on 04 September 2011 - 20:00
|Katrina, go back and read from the 5th post in and continue right through to page 3, very much about the eating of dogs and Larus being for that purpose, correct?? So my comments about Larus being bought to provide food is very much on topic. Unlike your comment out of the blue about who will be sold after the SS. Hope the show today educated you as to the correct GSD, but you and I both know there are dog shows and then there are shows. I do not count Alsationist parades, your preference, as correct GSD shows.|
I too have noticed a big difference since Oli appointed mods, especially the new TOS about multiple user names, hopefully they will get round to yours Katrina, what ya think?
You can take this to the bank Katrina, no one is keeping a low profile, FACT, they are just no longer willing to debate with a no nothing idiot like you.
" There are those who know nothing and there are those who don't know they know nothing" could have been writen just for you Katrina, lmao.
The mad man??? Take your pick, but he has already claimed the title by his own admission, or did you miss that post too, like the ones about eating dogs?
Forgot to ask how is Chinablue, lol. PRICELESS, lol
Nighty night Katrina, sweet dreams, old Grandpa's off to bed.

|-Priceless, wrong yet again - I do not like 'alsatians' !! you prove time and again that you know nothing about me. Please state exactly where you get the notion that my preference is alsatians. Nope, I don't have multiple user names either - don't need them - got just the one of my own. Who is Chinablue? I have no dogs by that name if that's what you're getting at! |
Ah the lovely showline I took with me today was just that, lovely. Then again she is an older lady and consequently is not grossly overangulated, her hocks don't wobble, nor turn in like a cow and she is as sound as a bell, even at her great age. She was complimented continually. Great day.
I just had a wonderful PM stating what an idiot you are and that you are not worth another second of my time.
You know what - they are right too LOL.
