    Most of the pug / random breed adverts that pop up on Shetlink are unfortunately scam artists from lands far far away! If it looks too good to be true / dodgy in any way please report it immediately and we'll endeavour to take it down and ban that individual. Sometimes this process can be quick sometimes may take a little time to do - so please bear with us and keep yourself aware!
     
    With that, there are genuine people on here helping to re-home dogs. The user Mazeemoo for instance can on occasion post various dog breeds and is definitely a real-world person! So there are adverts you can be assured are honest and truthful!
     
    Hope this helps.

    CLASSIC VERSION:
     
    The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer
    long, building his house and laying up supplies for
    the winter.
     
    The grasshopper thinks he's a fool, and laughs and
    dances and plays the summer away.
     
    Come winter, the Ant is warm and well fed.
     
    The shivering grasshopper has no food or shelter, so
    he dies out in the cold.
     
    THE END.
     
     
     
    THE BRITISH VERSION:
     
    The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer
    long, building his house and laying up supplies for
    the winter.
     
    The grasshopper thinks he's a fool, and laughs and
    dances and plays the summer away.
     
    Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed.
     
    So far, so good, eh?
     
    The shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and
    demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be
    warm and well fed while others less fortunate, like
    him, are cold and starving.
     
    The BBC shows up to provide live coverage of the
    shivering grasshopper, with cuts to a video of the ant
    in his comfortable warm home in Hampstead with a table
    laden with food.
     
    The British are stunned that in a country of such
    wealth, this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer so
    while others have plenty.
     
    The Liberal Party, the Respect Party, the
    Transvestites With Starving Babies Party, the Single
    Lesbian One Eyed Mothers Party and the Coalition
    Against Poverty demonstrate in front of the ant's
    house.
     
    The BBC, interrupting a Rastafarian cultural festival
    special from Grimsby with breaking news, broadcasts
    them singing "We Shall Overcome."
     
    Ken Livingstone laments in an interview with Panorama
    that the ant has got rich off the backs of
    grasshoppers, and calls for an immediate tax hike on
    the ant to make him pay his "fair share".
     
    In response, the Labour Government drafts the
    Economic Equity and Grasshopper Anti-Discrimination
    Act, retroactive to the beginning of the summer.
     
    The ant's taxes are reassessed, and he is also fined
    for failing to hire grasshoppers as helpers. Without
    enough money to pay the fine and his newly imposed
    retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by Camden
    Council.
     
    The ant moves to France, and starts a successful
    AgriBiz company [funded by the EU] (although within
    weeks, his business is threatened with Compulsory
    purchase by the state unless he marries a French ant).
     
    The BBC later shows the now fat grasshopper finishing
    up the last of the ant's food, though Spring is still
    months away, while the government house he is in,
    which just happens to be the ant's old house, crumbles
    around him because he hasn't bothered to maintain it.
    Inadequate government funding is blamed, Diane Abbot
    is appointed to head a commission of enquiry that will
    cost £10,000,000.
     
    The grasshopper is soon dead of a drug overdose, the
    Guardian blames it on the obvious failure of
    government to address the root causes of despair
    arising from social inequity. The abandoned house is
    taken over by a Gang of immigrant spiders, praised by
    the government for enriching Britain's multicultural
    diversity, who promptly set up a marijuana growing
    Operations and terrorize the community.
     
     
     
    THE END

    Colin, you cannot simultaneously deride others for being presumptuous, while you yourself make the baseless assumption that angelpie is not also carrying out "boots on the ground" research in conjunction with this request. It is possible (and, indeed, sensible) to use as many channels as are available. Your manner in this thread has been quite aggressive and I cannot figure out why. Whatever angelpie's reasons for wishing to write this article I don't see any need to attack him or her as you have here.

    Go on what? What does this even mean in the context of the wider sentence. Medication? A bike?
     
     
    Eh?
     
    We here have systems, too. Yes, systems. I have systems. They have systems. Some systems. Big systems. Small systems. Do daa diddy doo.
     
     
    I think this is probably how you've ended up de-railing a possibly useful thread, no? Trying to stick up for "councils". A council. Any council. Every council. To give some form of super-super-insight into goodness only knows what?
     
    Certainly people do have a responsibility to dump "responsibly". They also require the means and avenues to do this. Perhaps there is no correlation between skip removal and illegal dumping? Yet, on the flipside, perhaps there is? There are definitely other avenues of waste removal available in Shetland with the use of common sense and common decency!!
     
    What is pertinent is that ideally, the people who dumped that mess at the side of the road will see this thread and be suitably ashamed and know in their hearts that they really are useless human beings.
     
    I'm not even sure now why I'm replying to this as I feel I've been dragged into a dirty troll net! Why would that be?

    SHETLAND’S enormous bi-annual fund raising event Relay for Life has beaten its own extraordinary record by raising more than £300,000. The announcement was made at Sound hall on Friday night when the Relay committee held a “thank you evening” for all the people who took part in the event which took place overnight from 31 May to 1 June at the Clickimin running track in Lerwick. The phenomenal fund raising effort had already raised £200,000 before the big night, so this year's total of £306,560.76 was not completely unexpected, convincingly beating 2012’s £275,000 record – the most successful event of its kind anywhere in Europe.
