But the OP DID 'care to share' about her money and time problems; and if it's true that she's got all those issues, then a new puppy is the worst idea ever. What's the big deal about posting about her new puppy? Is the OP ashamed about it? I just don't get why some are attacking PatchworkRobot, when all she did was post a great suggestion to someone having money, time issues, a suggestion that would greatly benefit the OP AND the puppy.
BTW: I may be in a fairytale too, one where people don't post a 'woe is me' thread with only partial information, one where people that have no money and no time do NOT get a new puppy, one where I don't have to check with an OP to find out if it's okay to post a response to their topic....
Bold is mine and I completely agree.
I don't completely agree with the last part though. Often stuff is omitted, even in threads like these, but, in my experience, the stuff that gets omitted is usually worse. Not saying that's the case here, however.
Well from an outside perspective the only people causing drama in this thread is the OP and her friends who are defending her. From an outside perspective patchworkrobot didn't word her question in a malicious way or in a way that made it obvious she wanted to cause drama. She sounded to me like she was trying to be respectful and tactful as possible while still asking a question that IMO needed to be asked. She seemed (once again to someone who knows nothing of what's going on) to have the OP's best interest in mind.
The whole bit is relevant but the bold part just hits the nail on the head.

Fine, i'll openly accept when i've crossed a line unlike some....consider it revised and assumption free.
It's still wrong. Your statement is making the assumption that it's something that I do on a regular basis. One can read the statement and assume that I have a folder (if not multiple folders) of information on people. That is not the case. I simply have a single picture (now two because one has been crudely dated in Photoshop) on my desktop. Do you not have ways to back up statements that you make? Most of the time I can just google things or go into someone's post history on DT but that's not the case here.
I can admit when I've done or said wrong and that's something I've admitted to on DT before. Yes, I rocked the boat, but I feel that my question, and hinted concern, was valid. I felt that way when I first posted and I still do now. This is a doberman forum and a thread about the user specifically so I think my question about her and her new doberman kind of tied in... I wasn't trying to be a dumb beaver(??) but just showing concern for how somebody going through what she's going through is going to handle a puppy. I've already answered as to why I posted here and not in PM.
