I will have to learn it there from scratch, but that cannot deter me :D

I am totally in on the Spain idea if you're serious. I'll just use Shelby's invitation. 8)

HAHAHA... hey, instead of Spain, why not Australia?! At least it's not a totally foreign language (although they do use some pretty interesting words, let me tell ya! My brother is studying abroad there now and their slang is hilarious!)

Hehehe... Simon (my dog) says Thanks! I adopted him from a shelter when he was 3 months old! I couldn't believe someone would wanna give up such a sweet (and young!) puppy! But, it totally worked to our advantage! He's a great dog... VERY hyper, but very smart, cuddley, playful, and absolutely nuts! :o) I swear, he needs to go on Ritalin, lol. He's about 2.5 yrs old and definitely behaves like a toddler! The pic isn't a good one, but he actually has an afro (I groom him myself, and I like to give him cool 'dos!)
What Furry-Kids does everyone have?

Hello Shelby.

This is Floyd:

Image

Strictly speaking he isn't my furry kid - although he wishes he was, coz I'm stupid enough to play and walk with him for hours!! He's my sister's Staffordshire Bull Terrier. He's a crazy dog, very strong and very muscular. His jaw strength is incredible. Probably apt to have a pic of him on a bodybuilding forum.

Incidentally, I'm from Staffordshire originally - creating this breed of dog is probably our greatest contribution to mankind.

I did have a furry kid, who turned into a furry old man. My own dog went to the big kennel in the sky in 2002 aged fifteen and a half.

I never really got a 'hard time' from it, but the people who run the gym kind of assume it's stupid to be vegan, and that it makes it really hard to do weight training, or any physical activity. The woman who runs the gym is like a 'semi-vegetarian' I think, which really bugs me to start with. But it's almost like they don't want to talk about it. Like they are talking to me about nutrition saying "Fish is good, chicken blah" and I say "I don't eat any of that because I'm vegan", and then they're like "ah." and then they have an expression on their face like i just told them I am going to do bunjee jumping without a rope. "That's never going to work holmes". It's irritating.

Tarz: Floyd is absolutely gorgeous! He does look like a very strong dog (he could probably beat me in arm-wrestling... well, if dogs were able to do that, lol). Sorry to hear about your dog.... 15-1/2 years is a very long time! You must've been a wonderful dad to him!


Richard: yeah, it seems like no one really understands veganism and sometimes I just get too tired having to explain it, b/c it always seems to turn into me having to almost defend myself! It's crazy... some people just can't be open-minded and/or accept notions that they aren't accustomed to. And I also get that "what-are-you-nuts!?!" look from people all the time too when I tell them I'm vegan and a weightlifter. They just understand how someone can bodybuild without massive amts of steak, creatine, and protein powders. Veganism goes against what all the mainstream bodybuilding philosophies preach... i don't know if some people feel almost "threatened" by it or if it's just too "new" of a concept for them to grasp. Who knows, who cares, lol. I know to a fact that I'm not gonna change just b/c some meat-head (literally, lol) at the gym tells me I should if I want to see gains.

I think meat must shut off the flow of oxygen to the brain! I have had people look me in the face and tell me that I couldn't possibly get enough protein. I'm 240 pounds. Clearly I'm getting protein somehow! :D

Wish is why all of us vegans have to stick together and just BRING IT. Seeing is believing, right? Or at least it should be....there are some awfully dumb 'meatheads' out there. :x

I have two little furry loves too, but mine are kitties :)
