I think most decent pet owners are Grace and I
believe you subscribe to care2..so you may have
already signed the petition, I am sure you will
add your voice to the attempts to ban this practice.
In honesty, El,
I never heard of Care2, before you brought it to
my attention, and I'm very glad you did..

I will be diligent about adding my voice there ..also.
and thanks, El.

How different folks think,
and I know there are superb animal lovers here..
and indeed, on Offbeat in general, it must be said.

I've seen the most loving caring posts about
animals around Offbeat - KUDOS!
NO trolling on that subject LOL!

When I'm bringing my dog Ali to the river for
a swim, she knows ALL the landmarks, and understands what 'going to the river means' and near jumps out
of her fur coat with sheer excitement.. and starts
barking, whining and kinda chattering away all the way
there -
and .. rather than stop her chattering,
I let her continue to express herself, as we 'humans'
do, when talking to one another.

Some folks forget that.

Here's a gorgeous link..



Pardon if I put it here already,
[memory not as good as it was](:

Warmest greetings to all the regulars.

Back at you Grace. Have a wonderful day.

Animals are far smarter than humans give them credit. While their concept of time may or may not be in line with ours, they seem to remember body language cues and as you mentioned, words we routinely use. Conventional wisdom says it is best to use or two syllable words.

It certainly rings true with my two.

My bird dog Britt would go crazy when I took my shotgun out of the cabinet . He was always ready to hunt. My wife bought him for me and he was very expensive. I would never have spent that much. The first time I took him hunting it was in heavy brush and I lost sight of him for a long time. I called and called for him and I thought well there went a lot of money. I had given up when he came out of the brush with a quail in his mouth. He had been on point all that time and finally gave up on me and grabbed the bird :)

say it clearly and firmly..
and YES that works perfectly,
as in a dog's world sentences confuse their thinking..

too many words(:

Hello there Brighteyes....and thanks for passing
that along. Boomer will be glad to hear that
Man U won their match today ensuring they are
still in line for the Premiership title.
Please tell him he is well and truly missed in
the kitchen.
Hope you are having a good weekend there Brighteys,
you mentioned festivals a little while ago, can you
elaborate on that please!....:) Sounds intriguing.
Glad you liked the link...
Yes Lady El, the festivals. We are involved in 5 festivals a year and they are truly wonderful. The first is Community Festival where close to 500,000 people come to over 3 days. The fest is not sponsored by any Corporations and we are self sufficient. We have over 3000 volunteers and no paid staff. Comfest as people know it was started over 40 years ago as we were protesting the Vietnam War. We have stood up to fight for equal rights, civil rights and gay rights to name a few. A loving and peaceful festival where all people are welcomed. Boomer and I are supervisors for Street Fair,(200 vendors)Community food, first aid and security. The second festival is near and dear to our hearts, Hot Times Festival. If you go to www.hottimesfestival.com you will see our picture under the photos by Russell Satori for the year of 2010. Once you are at the sight go to photos and look for the year and person. I will IM you the photo number we are in. We were married there in 2003 and will be renewing our vows this year. In the pictures you will see a lot of diversity along with belly dancers, food, vendors and art cars. Sorry this post is so long but you Lady El have asked for information that is all about our passion for people and the human condition. Hope you enjoy!

Hello to all in the kitchen...hope all are well. Once again woke up to a light snow on the ground and no sun. I am okay with cold and sun but the days of wet/gray clouds with no sun I am so done with! Give me sun and I am good.:) I hope everyone has a great week.

Good morning all! Happy happy day to you!

Hey Denny!? I'm watching Candy & Mitch McConnell -- will pols ever give a straight answer in son English? And how can he say we need to just cut spending without raising taxes??? Seems to me the concept of a budget is doing both.

Just sayin'........ and askin' you....

Quinn the truth is if we are going to have European Socialism we need European Taxes. I would rather do away with Socialism and keep taxes low. We can not continue to borrow nearly half of what we spend. Hunger is a great motivator. I mean how did we live without all the government care from cradle to grave. We feed kids 2 meals a day at government expense. Let parents provide for their kids !
