@kirjoh Shibas can get along with other dogs and cats if raised with them. Children, if they've been taught that the dog isn't a stuffed toy, are fine. I've had Shibas for nearly 20 years and with socialization, training and a great breeder, I've never had any problems.

It's funny how people say "no offense" when they really mean "I'm going to say/type something offensive, but I don't want any backlash."

@dixie368 How rude! I wouldn't have blamed you if you had a word with her to not steal cookies from the other participants. Having children with you is not license to let them take whatever they want.

I've never heard the expression "across the pond" construed as pretentious myself, unless it was paired with a pretentious statement.

Seriously, if Santa were a real person, he'd have been slammed by a series of stalker laws, particularly in California.

I think that when you visit someone else's home, you should show respect for your hosts by asking whether shoes are off or on. Just because you are a guest doesn't entitle you to track in the contents of the street because you 'don't feel comfortable' not wearing shoes.

@reginamonster I love the fruit-flavored Tootsie Rolls! You can just send them all to me :D

I really don't get the vitriol towards older people who take the time to dress up for Halloween. I can see not giving candy to people who don't bother to dress up - but if someone wants to put on a costume and go door-to-door for fun, why do you care? I think refusing to give candy to costumed people because they're over your arbitrarily set "acceptable age" is mean-spirited.

Why should there be an age limit on trick or treating? If someone wants to take the time to dress up and go door-to-door, I think it's awesome, no matter how old they are. Adults and older children should be able to participate in Halloween trick-or-treating too.

@Lisa Hunter Because they pulled him down before he could barricade himself behind the bathroom?

@Sleek1 Yes, they are different. Teacher-led prayer has no place in public schools for the simple fact that not everyone holds the same belief system or even has a belief in deities at all.

@Sleek1, if those were my children, I would have minded. You had no right to promote your personal religious beliefs to minors in your care.

I'll pause if someone says a blessing, but it had better be short and sweet - don't expect me to bow my head. I think it's in bad taste to ostentatiously pray when not everyone in the company adheres to your particular belief system.

How about just washing and drying your dishes by hand? The more people helping, the faster things take, less water is used and things get put away.

While I can appreciate that a Lhasa Apso has sacrificed its life for the greater good, it doesn't appeal to me enough for me to put a bid on the top one.
