Re: Finally got my hearing aids

electric fencer,

No I am not cruel. Electricity can be a very good training tool. Now don’t laugh at me. :lol: But as a 9 year old, my older brother (13), talked me into pissing on grandpa's electric fence, that taught me a life long lesson. :cry: I have a Rottweiler that marked his territory by pissing on my gates....
