7 Things the Mom of a Tantruming Toddler Needs to Hear

July 28, 2015

Anyone have experience with a pit bull labrador mix dog?

K. M. asks from Glencoe - I have experience with labs, but none with pits. I know they have a bad rap, typically, but I have no personal experience. Anyone have experience with a mix of these breeds? I can't really go up the bloodline for info, as it would be an adoption. Thanks all!

Are you a bitch? No? Don’t think so? I bet some would disagree with you. You see, I don’t think I am a bitch. I think I am quite nice, but it seems I have gotten quite the bad rap. And you know what?

July 22, 2015 -

J. M. asks from Chicago - I am curious how often your family visits or communicates with the grandparents? Also, how often you believe is sufficient or appropriate?

Why are some people mean?

July 11, 2015 -

J. G. asks from Chicago - Yesterday a poster on this site made some mean remarks about me, and included a not so cute way to not directly say my name. I see this morning she removed the direct mention to me, but her other words are still there along with enough other clues. I wrote a long post ...
