Age discrimination!

There’s a whole lot of age discrimination going on.

If you’re looking for a job and are of a certain age, you know how tough it can be. Some think just because your looks have faded that your brain cells have as well.

Adult dogs and cats waiting for new homes in shelters have the same rejection problem. That’s sad, because for a lot of pet-seekers, a grownup pet would be the smartest choice, especially for busy, working families or singles. All my dogs but one came to me as adults; all were a breeze to house train and integrate into family life.

Several weeks ago, Matt, a young, single coworker, told me he was ready to get a dog—his first. As we talked, I suggested he adopt a young, adult dog from a shelter, one already house trained. Since Matt lives alone, worksd erratic hours and never had a dog, I really felt a puppy would be too much for him because of the extra time, work and attention puppies need.

Matt hesitated, and then said he wasn’t crazy about the idea of adopting from a shelter. He thought something must be “wrong” with the pets, or why else would they be there?

THAT sentiment got my blood boiling, because it’s a common, though totally false notion. Having worked with shelters for years, I can tell you the real problem lies not with the pets, but with those who get pets before thinking it through or for all the wrong reasons.

For example, a couch potato will get a border collie, and then complain because the dog has a lot of energy. Or a parent will buy a puppy or kitten simply because their kids want one. They don’t bother to train the pet—or the kids, who treat the animal like a toy. Understandably, the puppy nips, the cat scratches, but instead of looking in a mirror, they blame the pet, haul it off to a shelter, or worse yet, drop it off on a country road.

Imagine if kid was never taught how to use a toilet, eat with utensils or behave in public? We’ve all had the “pleasure” of meeting the latter in restaurants or stores, but we don’t blame the kids—we rightly blame the parents.

Others rid themselves of pets simply because they move. No one should get a pet unless they’re willing to move it.

So I gave Matt THE SPEECH about cat, dogs, shelters, puppies and kittens. But he had his heart set on a puppy. I warned him, “Don’t come to me in six months and ask me to find it a new home!”

Matt first responded to an ad for a free puppy, which forced me to give him my OTHER SPEECH about backyard breeders for bucks vs. professional breeders, as well as the problems created by those who don’t spay and neuter.

Matt got his puppy despite my motherly interference, and I’m happy to report he adopted her from a shelter, Precious Friends. Charlie, a female Pyrenees mix, is adorable, but like all puppies, has accidents, cries and chews.

Matt is doing what everyone who brings home a pet should do: He thought about it, planned for it and did it for the right reasons. He owns his own home, has a fenced yard and made Charlie a house dog. Matt also read a book on raising a puppy, is crate training and plans on obedience classes. He also asks me questions sometimes, as I’m much older, much wiser and not shy about sharing my opinions—especially when it comes to pets.

I think Matt and Charlie will have a long and happy life together, because Matt knows to be afraid of me—very afraid—if he doesn’t live up to his responsibility where pretty little Charlie is concerned.

Okay, Matt has a cute doggie. Now maybe he needs a woman too! How old is he? Maybe we gals can "Hook" him up with some one...

No offense Skeeter, But some men (not saying this is true of Matt, since I don't kmow him) need the responsibility of a pet before they can take on the responsibility of a girlfriend or wife.

Matt looks happy with his new puppy. Congradulations on the new baby!

Sandy, I just had this same conversation with a co-worker who wants to get a boxer puppy for her daughter who is 4. I first asked her if she ever had a dog. No. So than I asked her why a boxer, She gave me the typical answer of "they are so cute". Having known a few boxers I told her how hyper they can be and strong headed. They are a very smart dog and need a lot of time and training. Both her and her husband work 40+ hours a week. I told her they didn't need a puppy and should look at getting a dog from the shelter or a rescue group that is a little older. She about had a heart attach. There was no way they would ever consider that. They were going to have a puppy with papers that came from a breeder. She has no plans on breeding, showing or anything else that would require her to have papers on a dog. It's purely a status thing. I don't know what else to say to her at this point. She has her mind made up. I know that once she gets this puppy, it won't take long before she's asking people in the office to adopt it. It makes me mad.

Sandy, Adrienne, I had the same conversation with a good friend yesterday too. She said shw will not go to a shelter since she doesn't know what they might ahve and on and on and etc, I kept saying how most are just fine and repeated what Ssandy said and how much they need homes and blah, blah, blah, you know the whole spill. She said since she ahs the money and the time to spend with it she has the right to have the kind of dog she wants which is a purbread. Now she is not a snob and she is a very loving person and loves all animals, she just wouldn't own a mutt. Some peo[le will not change thier mind no matter what. Some like my friend aren't snobs and do take care of what they have then there are the otheres like my neighbor who could care less about the animals but like to be able to say they ahve a purebread that they paid a bunch for. The ones who only care about the status are the ones I have a real problem with. My neighbor was trying to get rid of her $300.00 cat way over a year befor they paid $450.00 for thier dog they kept tied to a tree even in the thunder, lightening and rain with no shelter!!!!!!!! Oh don't let me get started on them again, I don't think I can take taht today!
Adrienne, I bet if your frined got the dog she said she wanted and it so much as growled at her kid then she would want to have it put to sleep. This subject is one that really gets my B/P up!

P.S. If Matt is so picky and wants a purebred animal he may be just that picky when it comes to women and want a purbred there too!
He's probably better off to just stick with animals for now.

Pam, Adrienne, I never thought of that. What a good point you have with Matt. Y'all got my giggle bone going with this one....

I had never even thought twice about getting a mutt or purebred dog until reading this. I cannot believe that matters to people. What a sad day for all those beautiful mix bred, one of a kind babies in the shelters... Doesn’t “one of a kind” mean anything to those snobs?

I know of a girl that has a large dog and she is already planning to get a Paris Hilton doggie when he dies! That is what she said! Young Twit! She does not even take care of the dog she has and is putting him in his grave with dreams of a Status Symbol.. Thank goodness her mother takes great care of the dog. With the kids attitude, I would say that mom taught the dog more then the kid!!! argggg

Oh, Pam, I don't think Dragon will like that very much. I think he's a one man show here on the Pet Blog. I doubt he's the type that would want to share his harem!!

Stacey,think about it, how many of us girls are on here and just one Dragon boy, there is so much room for more man toys! And we are strong women and Dragon is just our male counterpart not our master! Remember we are equal pardners in the business of Dragon Enterprises! He needs us as much as we need him. All that said he will always be "Top Man " in all we do in business as well as fun stuff!

Pam, Matt wasn't insisting on a purebred dog, he was just hesitant about the shelter thing. But, he ended up going to a shelter, so all is well. Charlie is a mixed breed. He first thought he'd get a lab mix, but he picked Charlie out after going to Precious Friends. I can't want to see how big she's going to get!

I will tell Matt he's gatering a fan club. LOL. Dragon boy might start breathing fire if he thinks someone is threatening is harem!

Helllloooo people, Demi Moore and Aston Kutcher! Need I say more? It used to be that older men got the young chicks and that was it but for the last several years it goes that way for the older women too. I say as long as you both look good and agree to the relationship who cares about the age. Well as long as the kids aren't still in high school. That I'm against. Like with the teachers and all. I got hit on by some of my daughters friends in high school. In fact one kid asked me to go to the prom with him and he ws serious,ha! That was a good one. I told him I really didn't think that was a good idea even if I wasn't married,ha, but thanks for asking, I was flattered.
As I said I'm older than Fly Boy and several of our friends thier wives are anywhere from 5 to 15 years older than the husbands. It just isn't a big deal anymore.

shannon, how is everyone? Much better I hope.Yea, girl we do have a lot in common and our "boys" have so much covert history we do have to be careful what we say on here about them and thier work.Well we don't discuss thier work at anytime period of course, especially among civilians, after all we are Lady Night Stalkers and we do not talk. But being a LNS I am kinda a bad girl sometimes, like saying the Fresh meat thang but Matt is kinda cute don't ya think?
Daisylouu, so glad to have you back, you were missed! Sounds like you think the "Fresh Meat" is a hottie too!
Stacey, you bad girl you, thinking those racey thoughts about a sweet little kitty. Of course Daisylouu was talking about a cat, probably King Kitty evil demon devil cat. But we know what you were thinking with your dirty little thoughts,because we all have the same ones,ha.I do like the thought of Dragon having to put on a leopard thong.Men like to see women in em. I mean come on now, am I the only one here who does not enjoy the feel of a thong or butt floss as it feels more like? It is not pleasure having that up your butt. I thnk I need to stop here, I'm getting a little turned on,ha.

P.S. Just to let ya'all know when I said I was getting a little turned on, it certainly wasn't by the the thought of the awful butt floss but of the subject in general. Started thinking of a variety of ideas and even the butt floss does conjur up ideas,ha. Fresh meat doesn't hurt either,ha. I know, now I am showing my bad girl self,somebody smack my wrist!

Blogger Daisylouu said...

Pam, I just think it's funny how men can get turned on by only visuals. Men go to "gentlemen's clubs" and become all aroused..... and women go to see the a male stripper and laugh and laugh and are embarassed and silly. Somehow we look at scantily clad males and while we might admire a nice body, we don't act like a bunch of dogs........did I just insult dogs? Woof Woof! Butt floss is unsanitary for women so I think we should just let Matt be the one to prance around in one.

Blogger Pam said...

Daisylouu, you are so right about the butt floss being unsanitary but do you think that thought ever enters a man's brain? They are only interested in what it looks like. If a man ever got a Cytitis from a thong, they'd be ready to ban them forever.

I HATE a man in a thong or speedo. YUCK YUCK YUCK! I like boxer briefs! I don't like those skimpy bathing suits on a man either. GAG ME WITH A SPOON (remember that Valley Girl saying?)

Now I can't even stomach breafast I'm so disgusted by the thought of a man in a thong. I will have to hunt down some construction workers to gawk at to get that image out of my mind. I've always found the construction worker look much hotter than the dressed up guy in a suit with nicer nails than me a turn off! Blue collar boys are definately hotter!

Daisylouu, when we lived in WA state a few years ago i let some friends talk me into going to a male stripper show. You would not believe some of thoe women. They were acting way worse than the men! In fact one old woman who looked about 80 was up dancing and stuffing dollars in the guys thong and whooping it up good. I would have been so embarrassed! In fact I was kind of embarrassed to even be there. I guess not enough though cause I went back one more time later with a couple of othere friends. There was this one guy who thought he was the hottest thing ever to hit the stage but he did nothing for me even though he was built pretty good. Well neither of my friends or I got all excited and acted like the other women there. We were sitting right next to the stage where he got off after his dance. he looked at us and said "well ladies you can breathe easy now it's over"! Ha. We got a kick out of that. Some of the guys were very good dancers and fun to watch but I'm not into watching them take thier clothes off. Of course they only stripped to thier thongs. I'm with you Sandy, I don't like men in thongs either. I like boxers too but some guys do look good in tighty whities!

One more thing on the strip show, there wasn't any alcohol allowed. All you could buy was pitchers of soft drinks, yuck! Now who gives a crap about that?

Blogger Daisylouu said...

Oh pam, no doubt women go crazy and act like animals, but I highly doubt ANY of them were sexually aroused!

Did I just insult animals again?

I could care less what a man is wearing as long as he's rubbing my back in the hottub.

Blogger Stacey said...

Oh, Daisylouu, I'm sure you won't have any trouble with getting your back rubbed in the hot tub. Dragon may have too many hands once you get him started.....


Friday, March 30, 2007 9:19:00 PM  
Blogger Pam said...

Well all I can say is any leftover hands can just com'on over and rub on my back too or my feet, oh yes yes, feet is good! Getting a reflexology ( foot massage) effects the entire body! It can get you relaxed in a way that nothing else can! And it can make other thoughts get going too! Oh yeah!

Okay, I have a come back to this one... You will never believe where our favorite place to hang out while living in Killeen Texas was... Yep, a strip club! We hated country music back then and this one strip club was the only place in town to hear some Rock. So we went one night. I went on a dare by one of the Saints friends. You did not dare me anything back then! We actually had a good time sitting at the bar and chatting with the bartenders. They were shocked that I went to a strip club with my hubby! I pretty much am just one of the guys at times. We became regulars with shooting pool and just hanging with the bartenders. We became friends with the bartenders, the club owner, the bouncer and even a few of the dancers. They each had a different sad story as to why they danced but all good girls at heart. My nickname became Mother Teresa for trying to convert some of the dancers into going back to school to get them a better life… Anyway, on my birthday one year we were at the Club with our friends as usual on a Friday night and they surprised me with my own male stripper! I about died. I ran from him and locked myself in the store room! I was happy to be with all those bottles instead of that yucky guy wearing a thong and shaking his woo woo at me! Hubby had nothing to do with this event but was asked permission from those involved with paying his fee. I told him to never ever under any circumstances let anyone do that to me again! I was totally mortified to say the least! The girls (bartenders) meant well, they said that since I always let my hubby see the girls dancing, that they only felt it fair for me to have my own dancer for the night. I said, thanks but no thanks and don’t do me any favors! This is all funny to me now but at the time I did not see the humor. Well, locking myself in the store room from a almost naked man is funny…..

Now what was really fun was for me and one of the bartenders to scream and act all crazy and tuck dollars bills in the girls G-string (that’s what they called thongs back then) when new young GI’s came to the club for the first time! We got such a kick out of seeing their reactions! I think it even helped the girls with tips! How funny, ah those were the crazy days!

Down Dragon.... Down....

Geez!! The topics that come up when I’m gone for a few days. I don’t know where to begin. I don’t mind sharing my harem; after all, I’ve been sharing all my life. I just hope poor helpless little Matt knows what he’s gotten into here. I don’t mind sitting back and watching. I know where I stand with my harem.

Daisylouu, I’m sorry to say that I do not have a leopard print thong, but I do have a red one. Would that work? And no, I could not be holding my “kitty”. He is a lean, mean, hunting machine, not a “kitty”. I would be happy to give you a back rub in the hot tub. I give very good back rubs, Guinevere can vouch for that.

Just a personal note—I’ve been extremely busy for the last couple of days. I had to send Guinevere off to school to learn how to cook. She made me so sick to my stomach on Thursday night. I have never known the stomach cramps and pains that I had then. I thought I was going to give birth to an alien. You know, the one that rips through your stomach. It only lasted the one night, thank the stars.

Here is the best stripper story you’ve ever heard. And yes, it is true. I was at the nudie bar—oh, wait, it was a “Gentleman’s Club” with my friend Jimmy. He always gets stupid and I like to watch and laugh at him. He decided to buy a table dance. It is just what it sounds like—a stripper, oh, I mean exotic dancer, comes and dances on your table. She was doing her thing (on her back on our table) and Jimmy gets all excited. He leans over her and in all the excitement, a tooth fell out of his mouth. It bounced across her monkey and down her thigh before it hit the floor. It was like super slow motion to watch. I thought I would die from laughing. That has to be the craziest stripper experience I’ve ever had. Not that I’ve had many…..

Then there was the time that a female friend of mine wanted me to take her to the nudie bar so she could pick up a man. But, that’s a story for another day. It was a hoot.

WOW I take a couple of days to move and come back to talk of strippers.

My Hubby used to work for a strip club as a bouncer. It wasn't my favorite job he had but it paid the bills. I learned a lot from the girls at the club. Most of them were working to pay for college or as extra money to support there kids. I used to think what a crappy job, to strip for men and money, but now I have a different view.

I used to send Hubby with his guy friends to the club. It was great. He got to have a guys night and I got some quiet at home. It was a lot of fun when he got home though too!!

Dragon,where to start this time? First don't blame Guinevere if you got sick, it could have been samonella and not her fault, be nice now.
Your friend that lost the tooth on the stripper at the nudie bar was really funny but reminds me of so many redneck jokes. Think about it a lost tooth on a stripper? How redneck can it get? ha. And monkey? Another one I haven't heard, you guys are coming up with new ones for me. Hey tell us about your friend who wanted to meat uh I mean meet a man at the stripper club, now that is interesting.
And most of all I have to know----do you really enjoy wearing your red thong? I mean those things are just the most awful feeling um uh thingies. Well to me they are but maybe that is because I am so sensitive.
Now if Daisylouu gets her backrub in the hot tub, do i get my foot rub? You got to take care of all your girls you know.
As for Matt, my my, He may be in for quite the challenge with us in here. Dragon you may have to take him under your wings and teach him a few tricks in order for him to survive "Your Wenches" here.

Skeeter, I too have gone to a strip club with the guys when I was in the Air Force and once even in Killen Texas! I was there TDY! I was shocked that the women didn't even wear pasties--they were all hanging out, even on the waitresses!

And once in Charleston S.C. I went with some guy friends. This place was more of a dive and guess what one of the dancers wore? A cast on her leg! How bad is that, that even with a cast the poor woman had to do that to make a living.

Dragon, Was it a loose tooth that just fell out or false tooth? Oh, I have never heard of a guy loosing a tooth to a dancer unless there was a fight involved! Thank goodness his tongue was attached! And also I am glad he did not spring for the lap dance as something else might have fallen off! I have not been to one here in GA but they call them Gentleman’s clubs here! What gentleman goes to a strip club? Now just where did you get a red “man-thong”? How funny the visual I am getting of you, just how do you get that thing on with such a long dragon tail? Ha hahahahahahah

Sandy, I would say that maybe you and I were at the same club at the same time in Killeen but don’t think so. I was the only female ever seen in that club other then the dancers or bartenders in the 5 years that I went there. And yes, pasties were optional and those which chose to wear them soon dropped them as the tips were less for the pasted clad gals...

Pam, I have never tried a thong in my life! Just the thought of wearing one and I think, day long wedgee plus I think of the stripers!

Adrienne, that was the really good side of going to the club with hubby, (I cannot call him a Saint with this topic) he and I went home together at the end of the night. Can we say, "Hold on and get ready for the ride…"

Powerful love machine, you crack me up Daisylouu!!!

Gee this topic really does not have much to do with pets but I guess we could say that “Cats” are the topic…

Anyone notice with all the talk about Matt and he is not posting here yet? Wenches, we have gone off the deep end and have run him off before his first post… LOL

Skeeter, I was in Killen Texas around 1988-1990. I was stationed in Charleston from 1987-1991 and got out right after the Gulf War. I went TDY from there, so it was in that span of time, but I'm not sure of the year. I don't remember if I saw any other women there that weren't wrapped around a pole or serving drinks, other than myself!

Skeeter, you mentioned maybe we scared Matt off before he even came on here. Got to tell you about the first time I ever saw a man scared of wome. Once back before I was married there was a car load of us girls riding around and there was this guy who was hitchicking so we stopped to see if he wanted a ride. Well this was a rowdy bunch of girls, I was actually the tamest one there. Anyway we were all carrying on and saying hello and yelling things and one of the girls said "Hey Boy, want a ride'? He said where you going? And she said we're going to BumFu-k Egytp! Then we all started cracking up and he said "No thanks I think I'll walk"! LOL I think we neaerly scared his pants off ,haha. We were soooo bad!

Daisylouu, all my teeth are also embedded in my head. I do have a cap that shouldn’t fall out. But if it did fall out it could be fun to search for it.

Pam, I do blame Guinevere for my alien head popping out of my stomach pain. What else could it be? Guinevere cooked dinner. I know she did not do it intentionally, or at least I don’t think so. If the hand fits the potholder, she must be guilty. I am being nice. I never said a word to her about it.
Uh, well ya’ll make me blush to answer the next question. Yes, I do like to wear the red garment mentioned above. They were given to by one of the girl friends I mentioned in an earlier post. Get your minds out of the gutter. Tell you about it one day.
Pam I got you down for a foot rub.
Matt will be on his own for a while. If he makes a mistake, and all the girls attack him too badly, I will help steer him in the right direction. He does have to learn. I have had my fair share of attacks from you lovely Wenches. In the end us Superior males will stick together.

To all. I am jealous. It seems all of you ladies have spent more time at the Gentleman’s club than I have.

Sandy, I was in Killeen from 89-94 but I bet the club you were at was not the same one. It no longer exists today as they bull dozed the place down. They did have many of those clubs back then. I hated that town because there was nothing to do! We spent a lot of time in Austin and San Antonio… The Saint was in the Air Force when we met back in 86’…

The club I was in was a huge place, but I'm sure there were many such strip clubs around the base.

I was in San Antonio of course, but just for basic training, so I had only one free day at the end to see the city. Then I was off to tech school in Waco. Jeez, I can't even remember the name of the base! I must be getting old! Lackland in San Antonio...what was the one in Waco?????

Oh, Lackland Air Force Base.....oh the memories. Back when I went through Military Police school in the late 80's, the Marines trained with the Air Force. I spent 3 fun filled months there. OH MY GARSH!!!! Let's just say that I lost my innocence in every imaginable way while I was there. I was a good kid growing up, didn't do any of those bad things like drink or smoke or whatever. Let's just say that Uncle Sam helped me along that path quite nicely. WHEW!!!!

I am beginning to notice that all of us “wenches” seem to have a common factor.. Some type of military ties! Is Uncle Sam to blame for our craziness?

Stacey, Uncle Sam made a woman outta you! Kinda sad he took your innocence but somebody had to do it, right?
Dragon I am so looking forward to my foot rub!! And I do have cute feet! They are soft too, not all rough and tough like some. ooh I get tingly just thinking about the rub!
And I haven't been to a club when women danced, just the men. Thursday
nights were when the men danced at the club we went to and I only went twice. As I said I wasn't all that impressed with most of them anyway. As for Matt, so far he hasn't had the ping pongs to get on here yet. He probably needs lots of lessons from you Dragon! As much as we give you a hard time you know we admire you for being man enough to take all of our sh-t! We like our men strong on here ans it don't get no stronger than our fire breathing Dragon! Right girls?

Dragon, one more thing, doesn't Guinevere get mad at you for wearing the red thong because a ex girlfriend gave it to you?

Tuesday, April 03, 2007 5:16:00 PM

Pam, she is not an ex-girlfriend. She is my girlfriend. And it's perfectly okay. In fact, Guinevere introduced me to her. In fact, she's sort of Guinevere's best friend.

Oh My Dragon, now we're getting kind of kinky here. No wonder Guinevere doesn't mind all the kidding around on here!

I remembered! It was Sheppard AFB! Is that in Waco? Anyway, I never got off the base much during tech school, so I could have been anywhere! What was strage about Texas and the chow hall there. We actually had rabbit on the menu. Okay, maybe people eat rabbits more in Texas. But then one day I noticed outside big jack rabbits hopping around. I put two and two together. I should have been a detective. LOL.

Pam. Apparently you have your mind in the gutter. Before I met Guinevere most of my friends were, and still are, female. Believe it or not I get along better with females than males. Most males have a tendency to get stupid. Not all, but most. The gift of the Red Thong kind a caught me off guard. She said she wanted a photograph of me in them. She never got the photograph. She is a friend. She is a girl. That makes her my girlfriend, right?

Dragon. you know good and well you said that like you did to get a rise outta the girls. I do get you and know what you mean since I have always gotten along so good with the guys and have had really good guy friends.
In fact one of my husbands best friends is as much my friend too so I understand. But we both know you did say girlfriend and make it sound like you did to spice tings up for fun like we all do. I got your number boy! And puleeze don't take that boy as a derogatory remark because I do NOT mean it like that. It's like when I call one of he other women on here girl, ok?

I should have said Boyfriend just like I say Girlfriend but then it is still the same to say Boy like I say Girl. Maybe I'll start calling you Boyfriend as long as you don't get offended.

Pam, I would love to be your Boyfriend....... That would make my day...
