A good looking little fellow for sure! I have my eye on a Leavitt Bulldog but a friend of mine swears that dog intelligence is inversely proportional to how much a person pays for them. Could be...... I've got a Corgi mix I rescued from the shelter for a few dollars and she trains me more than I train her. Ha!Bought a pup that cost 2000 euros, he is joining our pack day after tomorrow.
He's a pedigreed Miniature Bull Terrier and both of his parents are multiple European champions. 8 weeks old in 2 days.
We have two rescue dogs (both terriers) who have lived with us for 6.5 years already. Their price was only 450 EURO each (chipped, vaccinated, EU dog passports, etc), but their value and impact on our lives has been priceless. And I'm not ruling out taking another rescue someday but the current ones will probably live for another 4-8 years each. It's still a long time. And they are both dearly loved.Rescue a dog please...
Rescue dogs are also not free - we paid 450 EUR each for our two rescues. And one of them came to us with parvo, bloody diarrhea that landed his ass in the hospital in less than a week and it cost another 400 EUR to save his life.X2 only snobby ass people *BUY dogs
Bulldogs are mainly from mastiff lines. Neither terriers nor mastiffs are known for their superior intelligence, but they're certainly not stupid dogs. And some people rank dog intelligence by their biddability - the willingness to do what you tell them to do. Terriers are stubborn AF and independent thinkers. That doesn't make them stupid, rather gives them the ability to do their work without a person commanding them.A good looking little fellow for sure!

Wow. Both of my guys were $65 each shots neutered included.Rescue dogs are also not free - we paid 450 EUR each for our two rescues. And one of them came to us with parvo, bloody diarrhea that landed his ass in the hospital in less than a week and it cost another 400 EUR to save his life.
Save your judgement for somebody that gives a **** Not being hostile, just honest.
Me too. All jokes aside-no chips or passports. Didn’t realize pet passports is a thing.
Okay. Well sure mine came with papers too. I can understand your costs now.
my fat ass thought this was some sort of underground fire pit for cooking.It's been 10 days since the last frost. I think it's safe now... Planted the tomatoes and some indoors started sweet corn, starting to plant the peppers. Carrots are up, parsnips just starting to break ground. Cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower all planted.
Today I planted 10 hills with indoor started fiber pots of of my favorite winter squash, "Uncle David's Dakota Desert Squash". I prepared the ground over a month back and also put a dome of chicken wire over each hill to keep any critters from messing with them before they are large enough to survive getting mauled.
(95 days) Cucurbita maxima Open-pollinated. David Podoll calls this strain the original buttercup. It has been in his family for 70 years. Theyve been selecting it for 40 years, crossing it with hubbards and other maximas, primarily for color, taste, sweetness, and vigor and hardiness in cold...www.fedcoseeds.com

I put these Hills of squash in a long row down the lane North of the rifle range backstop, in between the three Haralson apple trees I planted for the deer to enjoy- Deer like to snack on squash and pumpkins nearly as much as apples, I will get enough squash for myself as well from this row. Tomorrow if the rain holds off, I will plant a couple of rows of corn on either side of the line of apples trees and squash hills to give the deer a nice privacy screened area to snack on the apples and pumpkins. Since the rows of corn will extend directly away from the deer stand, these rows will not really provide any useful cover in that direction. Sorry, deer. Yes, I am an ambush predator.
More like a future ingredient acquisition/prep area... As far as I can recall, 17 deer have been invited to dinner within 100 yards or so of that squash mound in the picture. I'm printing the next round of invites, so to speak.my fat ass thought this was some sort of underground fire pit for cooking.
That's me - I have been thinking about growing vegetables for a while and finally planted a few different sorts in growbags as well as some herbs.a lot of people also are getting back in touch with growing and raising their own foods.
I mean you can buy good bread but it costs like 5-6 eur for a loaf. People can't afford that stuff if they are laid off.It turns out that Australians have re-discovered the lost art of baking, and are baking loads of their own bread. My guess is that people have finally found out that it takes very little to make a bread at home that absolutely runs rings around the commercial bread they buy at most supermarkets and bakery chains.
True. But that price range is for artisan bread (AUD 6-8). An 800 g run-of-the-mill supermarket loaf costs AUD 3-4. A 2 kg packet of all-purpose flour costs AUD 5. So, yes, it's cheaper to bake my own bread. But I strongly suspect that people aren't baking their own just to save money. The price difference isn't significant enough to matter, except in extreme cases. I really think this is happening because homemade bread is better by a very wide margin.I mean you can buy good bread but it costs like 5-6 eur for a loaf.
