paraprosdokians--- love them--- anne just sent me an article on the fact that winston churchill loved them... as i do..... some of you may have heard this before...it is a writing form where the second part of a sentance/concept does not match the first.. a well known example.....

many of the old burma shave roadside limericks were like this...making them fun to read..

and i think harry potter was full of them too... sometimes it just happens in these dd's
usually i tear apart advertising, but there are a few modern ads i like.. some are the geico ads-- most notably, my all time favortie is teh changing of the guard at buckingham pallace--- the slovenly replacement could not be more perfect.
we still have "the 2 girls " here they are really trouble free so far... no arguement .. even with chaos....
i did "training" yesterday... i decided i needed more exercise -- so i took bentlye and sizle to home depot -- mostly because they all know me there and i wanted to try and hook the 2 dogs together... so they would stride togetehr...-- i used to do this with all the dogs as they came along in training... usually i had 2 horse halters - dog's head thru the nose part and the dog girth was the strap uaually over the head of the horse.. to start with i run a rope thru the halter rings mid rib cage in a u shaped so if they pull, they pull themselves together.. what you don't want is to use snaps at this stage because one might decide to turn around and once tangled you can't work the snaps... .. as they get used to it... usually takes only a few minutes you can use a quick release tie between the part agound their necks-- like tieing theri collars together.. then go to a quick release at their girth and you might have a working pair of dogs... once they get the hang of it, it is possible to get them to circle you by calling the name of the "inside dog"
when you really get good, you can walk to make the other dog the inside dog and have the pair make figure 8's by going back and forth. all i managed yesterday with bentley and sizzle was an eye catching whoa ! where they both stopped and stood.. figure 8's need to be done outside-- and seeing as it is not in the 70's. that probably is not going to happen til spring.. bentley is a little lazy too--- sizzle might need a more energtic partner...
between black friday, cyber monday and giving tuesday.. how about chicken shatty wednesday... there are alot of offers 'out there' for schemes to raise money... but i think our chicken bricks are the best and most efficient for money landing in the care and training of the dogs....with out having to provide anyone with our email list. i am sure our email list of people interested in dogs would draw a hefty price from some companies.. i try and guard it. i think we have the best method going---

shocking news-- this dropbox thing is loaded with recipients emails-- all the people i am really angry with for not sending me an email about how their dog is doing hae somehow been hiding stuff inthe drop box. the list is long...but true to computer mentality, it will not let me open the emails-- so i am not much furtherealong than before... my case still stands... i certainly don't have a clue about how this works, and i do not have the time or mentality to learn so...... i can not immagine it is terribly difficult to send me an email when you are lockboxing -- i am not sure i can stand one more name/ password /secret sentence routine.
