Dog park thread?
The other day this really old Labrador (like. Haggard as fuck, probs 14) is chilling roaming the park like a majestic elephant. Some young kids, maybe 14, bring their friends dog down (who they don't know) to the park. It's some Bogan fucking staffy, questionably pit. It latches onto old dogs neck. The owner who is like mid 60s tries to pry the mouth off, doesn't work. Some quick thinking from a bloke at the park ends it by putting fingers up the staffys ass hole. Old guy is furious and leaves the park. Then goes and talks to. The kids outside.
Help me name my puppy training class

I need your creative brains!
I am a vet nurse/tech starting puppy training classes in our practice based around dogs having fun at the vets and habituation towards equipment, restraint and handling for veterinary procedures like clipping nails, examining teeth and ears, injections, blood sampling to promote happy stress free vet visits, so the dogs aren't scared and aggressive when they come in.
Now I need a name for these classes.
We were going to call them "love your vet" classes but a local trainer has a similar name "love dog training" which could get confusing. Id like to include the vet/healthcare aspect in the name ideally.
Can you help me with a name?

Look /an/, You wanna be known as a cat person, go ahead, but remember: What do they always find in the house with all the crazy people on Hoarders? What is the favourite pet of serial killers? What do lonely folks have? That's right, and now you've fallen into the category of "cat person." Congratulations! Table for one? Welcome to Lonely Person Town, population: you.
Conflicted: What to do about pets.

I have two cats. Both are female. Both were adopted. Both the same age and type of cat. I believe one is slightly mentally slow either due to past owner experience or natural birth defect.
I was gone for a 3-day vacation and the other cat (the one without mental issues) was acting more hostile towards the other than usual; going after her after I saw the first assault and then again after pushing her away the second time.
The one WITH the mental issues seems to have trouble with figuring out I don't want her getting onto my bed and other surfaces. Yes, I know they're a cat, but she should still have realized a pattern by now.
As I believe putting any animal BACK into a shelter is being cruel, I'm considering putting them both down myself because I'm not about to spend money to have someone kill my pets. Humanely or not.
One; Because they simply don't get along with each other. And two; because both of them have trouble with understanding what I don't want them to do to some extent.
Also, the one with mental issues seems to have a (possibly multiple) health issues as well aside from the mental issues. Both are loving and caring to people while separated from each other.
Most of all, I'm just done with having to further give any more emotional investment into either of them when being their owner in the first place wasn't my decision. I had animals growing up and I loved them. They lived happily and died of old age. I'm just getting at the end of my rope.
Thoughts? Opinions? This isn't bait or anything of the sort. I'm just grasping at straws, trying to get additional angles.
