Out of the Blue

We had a little block party on our little block yesterday. It was all terribly pleasant, and we got to meet a lot of our neighbors for the first time. Hudson the wonder dog probably had the best time of all though. In addition to getting to meet a bunch of kids, which is heaven for her, there was all manner of food spillage to snorfle around for on the street. Potato chips? Whoosh. Pretzels? Whoosh. Cheezy poofs? Whoosh. All right up the canine vacuum cleaner, to the point where she didn't touch her dinner. I know Cheetos have their animated cheetah spokesman, but if there's a chip or pretzel company out there in need of a mascot, have I got a dog for you. Woof!

No offense, but message boards that don't support threading aren't very good imo.
Possibly, but you must be talking about some other board, since this one does support it. Above the list of posts, select View Threads, and hit the Change button. Presto.

"When I was a kid we had a fox terrier. They look like your dog but smaller and had white instead of the brownish color. He weighed about 15 pounds and bit more people than I can count. Always on the kiester.

Man, I miss that dog. "

Exacly the same for me, except our dog would bit people on the ankles instead, and he really hated the noise skateboards made, so he would go after those people the most...

Yo, Blue!

We had a dog once that we nicknamed "Kirby Hoover" - you surely understand.

Funny thing about swiffers - that's our cat's favorite toy. He rides it around like he's at an amusement park.

Problems with Blammo are just furn lacking time. Along with various server issues caused by UGO and furn originally not realising just how much load Blue's gets.

You will however notice how well that message comments have run since they switched over to my system, Chatbear. I anticipated things better.

I don't see why not. Study results are study results. I'm pretty sure that 199 patients is not a large enough group to draw conclusions from - which would be why the usual disclaimer is there for more research, but it wouldn't be an amazing shock to me. Certainly the evidence is there in the case of heart surgery patients.

Of course I'm also open to the results of a tiger|rock study. Lets see if we can get 100 people to face a hungry tiger armed with a rock and 100 people armed with nothing and see if the rock is beneficial :p

Saw the APOD and thought immediately of a certain gaming company. The title should have been called "The Ion Sun" rather than "The Iron Sun"!

Yeah, prayer influences the success rate of in-vitro fertilization. And this rock keeps tigers away.

All these problems with "Blammo". Is your machine problematic? Or do you have a mediocre programmer? It has to be one of the two since you're often having problems.

Yes, she's an Airedale Terrier, through and through. I don't know if I used the right phrase in snorfle, but Airedales are quite well known for their tendency to sniff along the ground for anything even half-way edible... owning an Airedale means never having to say: "Honey, where's the vacuum? I spilled something."

We could have named her "swiffer."

All dogs will beg and scrounge, but I was under the impression that "snorf" was a unique Golden Retriever mannerism (having both a Golden and a Shepherd/Lab) >=).
What kind of dog is Hudson, an Airedale?

Block parties rule! I wish there were one every week around here. Of course, some of the neighbours can get annoying, but the concept is there -- large amounts of food, drink, and music.

Be nice to your puppy,
