I'm 21 and im pretty sure that while I didnt know a lot about the ways of the world at 16, <---------- is this not what you said?
I am 22 so there is no 'teen' in my age. <----- and is this not what you said? what age are you really? and who are you to say im acting like a child? when you are argueing along with me? real adult thing to do lmao
"A rediculous amount of 16 year olds have had sex, done drugs, and drink regularly. I'm pretty sure that if they're capable of making decisions like that, they're capable of taking care of a bird or realizing they cant take care of the bird and just leaving it at the pet store" if you think that that is a responsible thing to do at 16 years of age maybe YOU shouldnt have birds either!
you bathe your dog once a mth?? that in itself is cruel i mean would you take a bath only once a mth?
and what i really want to know is why are you evan in this conversation i wasnt evan talking about you, no where in my first post did i mention your name, i actually think you and one other was the only ones i thought were being respectful. so this had nothing to evan do with you.
"And I love how you deem yourself able to end the conversation. Such an 'adult' thing to do when you know you're wrong." i deemed myself out of this convo because it is getting very childish!!!!! i am a adult i am able to do that!
another thing i dont really see why you are getting all angry talking about your age, did i ever call U child? i seen how old you said you were, i never said you are a TEEN!!
"And the 13 and 14 year old parronts she was talking about was mainly LLPB. She's 13 years old and takes excellent care of and has excellent knowledge of her birds." i really dont consider 13 to be a good age to try and bring a life into the world! since we are talking about these birds as if they are human! and if i had known she was 13 i wouldnt evan be taking advice from her! i think you people take this [censored] to the extreme and its really stupid that you sit here and actually go against what a vet has to to say thinking you know better than they do! ive seen it too many times on here.
and since we are haveing a spelling bee, parronts is spelled parents!!!!!!! you know ive tried to be nice ive kept my mouth shut and said lets give these people the benifit of doubt that they know what they are talking about and ive put up with scolding to me directly because there was things that i knew i did wrong and i took it like a woman a adult! but im sorry i dont have to take this [censored] or yours.. if your such an adult im going to treat you like one. NOW IM GOING TO BE THE ADULT HERE AND WALK AWAY AND END THIS CONVERSATION. NOTHING WAS DIRECTED AT YOU. all in all i just wanted people to lay up on trey a little bit if you cant understand that then you ARE childish!! and HEARTLESS!!
i can't believe things have gotten this far.wisdom and knowledge are not necessaryly things one get with age.it's learning thru experiences.there are a lot of people who are on here have both and are under 25.I wish they could spead it to the world.being young or old is no excuse for doing something that can be harmful to a pet or person,that's the bottom line!let it go and move on.
when you wish upon a star,you pray you wish comes true.

erh... parronts is a play on the word parrot and parent. It means you are the parent of a parrot. Dumb. I just turned 22 so please excuse me for posting on my birthday as 21 and the day after as 22. You aren't supposed to bathe dogs more then once a month (or atleast, labs and retrievers you aren't. My vet actually suggest no more then once every two months). They have oils in their coat to help protect them from rain and if you bathe them too often it gets rid of the oils. You're only supposed to brush them very often to stimulate the skin and hair follicles and get stuff out of their coat. So... yeah. You bathe your dogs every day and let's see what kind of condition their skin is in. Saying you wouldn't have taken advice from LLPB if you knew she was 13 is just like eating something, saying it's delicious, and then finding out it's frogs legs and saying it's gross. It's either good advice or it isn't, it doesn't matter what age the person that it comes from is... Also, you have such a YAAYY I'm not 19 anymore I'M AN ADULT attitude. Kinda like sophmores in HS who are excited that they're no longer freshman so they get an attitude. Also, I never once suggested you were talking about me. I knew exactly who you were talking about. But I have had the 'How old are you?' question directed at me on this forum before as an attempt to discredit me and I honestly don't think that it's appropriate to say people don't know things because they're younger then you (Which, btw, according to your theory you're still quite the young'n too considering the fact that you are less then a year removed from having the word 'teen' in your age). You're older then they are and obviously have a lot more to learn in the social skills area then they do. And P.S. 'ending' the conversation is a childish thing to do. Or at least according to the people who taught me social skills it is. You have a conversation until all parties agree that they have come to a conclusion otherwise it's like you're taking your ball and going home because no one wants to play your way... can we say child?
I would also like to say that I think it's a shame you've taken this this far. I really do like you and think you're a wonderful contributing member of the forum. It's a shame that you can't see past people's ages. I would have loved to be able to see more posts about your fids (not a typo, it means feathered kids) and watch them grow up with you.
yea your right this has gotten out of hand, but i have to say heather you have took what i said in the first post and twisted it all around, all i meant to say is that "most" younger people NOT all younger people do not think things threw as good as a adult would. i never said they were stupid i never said they were dumb, and no im not saying that people here dont know what they are talking about yes ill admit i said some things in the previous post that were untrue but hey im human you made me mad lol im sorry if what i said got taken the wrong way that is not how i meant it to sound. i just felt bad for the boy that everyone was jumping on him like mad dogs. he is a young person that came here innocently looking for help. so like i said heather, kila im going to be the adult that i am and im going to apologize this has gotten way out of hand. i never meant to hurt anyone by what i said, and alot of you are very very smart and ill admit you know what your talking about. but you also have to admit that not all teens are as smart,and responsible as most of you are. i have a 15 year old brother so beleave me i know how irresponsible teens can get and it is totally normal, that is why i felt bad for trey. so there it is there you have it IM SORRY. you all are very nice people and have been good to me but like i said befor i just wish people would really pay attention to how you word things because there are people out there that really take things to heart. by the way no im not 19 im 28. not that it matters. so anyway hope this is over and done with. it was really stupid to start with and i think we ALL Really acted childish! also llpb if you read my post sorry hun i know you prolly took that personally but beleave me i didnt meant it i was very ticked off and i apologize directly to you. you are a very smart young lady. and just so you know heather i dont wash my dog everyday i was her like once maybe twice a week shes a inside dog and i use specail soap for her skin as to not dry it out.

You're right it did get way out of hand and I’m sure I helped it along the way. I did feel as if trey was being jumped on a bit too harshly I just am very offended when people bring age into knowledge, one has nothing to do with the other. The reason why I said you weren’t that far removed from 19 is because you said in one of your posts that you were 20 please excuse the confusion. Also, my family rescues labs... as in people hear about us and bring us dogs they don’t want or don’t have time or room for. I promise we take good care of our dogs. They are groomed more then amply, if we were to even attempt to wash both of them (in the time period I'm talking about we actually had three, 2 labs and a golden) as often as you wash your dog we would never be done washing dogs lol :)
Apology accepted and I hope you accept mine, I said some harsh things, I think this is a silly reason for you to stop coming here.
