2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

My first husky, Casey, wasn’t an obnoxious human food stealer, but he was crafty. He picked his spots. Once, we had another couple over for holiday dinner. Everything was prepared. I was sitting in the sun room with Casey, waiting for the guests to arrive. On the coffee table was a spread of crackers and cheese. Casey was asleep under the table. The doorbell rang. I got up to open the front door and welcome our guests. I hung up their coats and led them into the sun room. Casey was still under the table, but crackers were everywhere and all the cheese had disappeared.

Spider is super bad about stealing stuff. My Thanksgiving dinner was really laughable, the plan was to go to the community center. Got a foot of snow and decided my 2wd truck would have stopping then going issues at stop signs and parking areas so the only thing not frozen was pillsbury cinnamon rolls. Out of 8 rolls spider got 3 between me taking them out and setting the pan down. Spider overdosed on thc not too long ago and i was worried she ate glass with it. That was a scary few days.

No holiday disasters here. That's because Archer is a known food thief and is watched/managed like a hawk. He is not left alone in a room with food out.
Actually, this year, I was pleasantly surprised. We had Josh's in law family here in addition to my sister and husband. I set up an extra table perpendicular to the big big kitchen table. There was room to move around the tables but just enough. Dogs were exceedingly well behaved, Ami and Archer outside with bones while we ate and Z'ev quietly beside hubby. After the big two finished their bones, they, too, quietly lay around hubby's end of the table. Patiently waiting for their treats from the table. Couldn't have asked for better behaved fluff butts.

No disasters yet! (knock on wood)
My dog is extremely obedient (is it his shepherd half?). Once I accidentally left half of an unwrapped Kraft American cheese single on the edge of the kitchen counter all morning (from making daughter's lunch). I took a break from work and went into the kitchen around noon and found it lying there, untouched by Rumo (Kraft American cheese is one of his favorite foods in the whole world, and I use it sometimes as a training treat). So I was very proud of him.
So far, the only thing he has destroyed in his 2.5 years here, is a small corner of my daughter's artwork. He ate it. The artwork made it into the school district art show anyway, ha ha!

No disasters but I'm having to secure my gates and doors better. Sky has figured out how to flip the latch on the gate ... and the door beyond is open so the cats can get in and out. She's also figured out how to open the sliding glass door off the kitchen - the one I can't see - so now i'm having to make sure that everything's latched down tight!
To blithering smart for my good!!!!!!
Oh, destruction - Shortly after I brought Avalanche home, he chewed the crotch out of TWO! pairs of blue jeans ... and please don't anyone say anything 'bout that. (( er, yes, he's a coprophage ))

ha ha ha!
I do have a cat holiday disaster (from my neighbor) to share. She had a long-haired fat (my est 16-20 lbs!) cat named Monty. Anyway one year Monty climbed the Christmas tree and brought the entire tree crashing down. All of her ornaments fell off and broke...she swept all the floors and had to put the tree back up and redo everything (catproofed, this time).
