terry Male (66) from West Yorkshire

Tell the world about myself:
First off...I'm not here for dating or 'romantic dalliances', I don't want your body, your brass, your company, nowt...experience has taught me me and women only mix when it's a pot of tea and a natter, nothing more and now I'm happy with that, I come on here simply to pass some time because I'm too idle to get off me backside and do something. If you've read a thread I've started or a post I've made in response to something, don't get all het up, I'm on a different planet to most people and still believe in unicorns and secret gardens....just haven't found them yet.

Let's talk dogs (I can't talk about other animals because I've never really shared a life with any other).
I only ever take in rescue dogs, dislike intensely dog breeders, or at least the fact they breed dogs for profit - their chosen profession - not dislike them as people because I know there are some nice people out there who breed dogs, just they're on a par with weapons manufacturers or nuclear physicists to me. I believe we can't own other creatures, that's slavery, and if I'd told my dog he was a slave for me he'd have cocked his leg up and pee'd over my ankles (he was only a staffy cross, so quite small) and in fact, one of his favourite pastimes was cocking his leg up and peeing anywhere.
Anyway, a friend and I (my only freind actually) were talking dogs, he has this marvellous rescue Lurcher called Shadow, a beatiful animal; and he said the new talk around the kennels is to refer to yourself as a guardian of a rescue animal, not a keeper or owner or whatever. The idea being it helps fosterers/carers/adopters understand the animal is a being in it's own right. That struck a chord with me, because I've only ever thought of dogs I've had as being friends, someone who walks side by side with me, or more truthfully a little rat that does as it pleases whatever I want or say, and I like that relationship, I look after them, they look after me, it's a two way thing, not an owner and a servant or slave.

I suppose what I'm saying here is, I prefer animals to people (so long as they're not psychotic and/or slithery) so if I've looked at your profile it's because I'm a nosey sod, and now you're here, why not take an extra few minutes to scroll down to the bottom and have a look at the photos.

What am I looking for?

A way out, or more realistically, not a lot.

What kind of people would I like to meet here?

Would prefer if they weren't psychotic murderers or political activists

Have a great day whatever you're planning and thanks for looking.
