That's honestly a very underrated film. Best werewolf film since Silver Bullet in my opinion.

TheHappyCanadian,How long until someone sues them for not allowing cats?

This really needs to happen.

Does someone have a trained cat to do this with?

And how do they feel about male dogs that hump other male dogs?

I hate humans. Essentially we're talking about animal sovereignty. The whole misconception of animals as "pets" is just a theological judeo/christian construct of humans as rulers of the earth giving us a false view of people as divinely intelligent and disconnected from consequence.

Further parading this ignorance by anthropomorphising pets into social groups identified as specifically human is beyond the furthest reach of my logical facilities. Although, samoa scooby snacks do sound amazing...

Because cattle dogs often go deaf, Puls and Coyote worked hard on the sign language badge. Then Coyote went blind instead of deaf.
And I spit my gum across the room.

<big></big>I've been a dog owner for twenty years now. How come I never heard of this group? I almost thought this was a late April Fools article or a The Onion like spoof on the Boy Scouts. I thought the picture of the large group of dogs sitting together so calm seemed unrealistic. If this <u>is </u>a real group, it's kind of a neat idea. People and dogs all seem so cheerful learning fun and important things and doing community service projects. I did get a bid teary eyed when I read their motto that dogs have much shorter lives than we do and thus we have to appreciate them even more so. Especially poignant since my sweet wonderful Golden is 15 now...she's doing quite well for her age...but I know she won't be around forever...

I just perused quite a bit of their site and it seems that training them is pretty much the main idea. You earn badges for the dog by demonstrating that they've properly learned behaviors or commands.

Just two weeks ago I finished 5 months of weekly obedience training with my dog (plus daily homework). We went through a basic, intermediate and advanced class with a local dog training school. It looks like all the classes we went through pretty much just cover the first "basic" badge they require you to earn before any of the others, so it's something that at minimum will require a good amount of work and a dog fairly well trained in the basics of good doggie citizenship. It looks like there are a lot of fun badges after the basic one, but some that might require some pretty serious work or training.

For instance, there are a whole set search and rescue badges which would require some really good training to achieve, while the geocaching badge looks like fun. Doesn't look like any real "gimmes" though. Even if it's just something you're doing with the dog for fun, like hiking, it looks like it will take real effort and not just a walk around the block or your neighborhood soccer field.

Basically, pretty much anyone whose dog is a member probably has a pretty well trained dog. If they have a few badges after the basic one then they have a very well trained dog and they spend a lot of time doing outdoor activities with them.

Think my little buddy might just have to get signed up...

Turns out the biggest troop is right here by me in DFW, and they meet at a park just down the road. I have a four month old Great Dane/Great Pyrenees going through doggie manners class right now and it might be fun to check out this group. He loves other dogs so it could be a good way to socialize him, as well as be around people who aren't bothered by a very large and friendly puppy.

I think you just don't believe in dog

So, do they exclude gay dogs?

Also, does the organization involved in a massive cover-up of scoutmasters who partake in bestiality?
