New format and stuffs!

Stumbles of the week!
Coolest picture I have seen in a long time.
Yay for photobombs!
Science of dogs
A bunch of places I need to go.

On to the regularly scheduled content.  And stuff.

I found a ton of full Dog Whisperer episodes on YouTube.  Yes, I am very excited by that.  My mother has a dog named Dougie.  Well, he started out my dog, then my son decided it was his dog.  Then we had to move out, and my mom asked to keep Dougie til we were on our feet.  Now she is going to keep him.  The only problem is she refuses to work with him.  The dog has lived with her for almost 2 years now, and she is barely able to take him outside since she knows nothing about dog training.  Since Dougie is no longer affected by Kennel Cough or any of the other nasty ailments he had, she wants to work with him now.  He came from the local high-kill shelter, and was really screwed up.  He is a cocker mix (so the long hair) and you could see his ribs.  He didn't bark.  Now we can't get him to shut up.  I used a couple of the things I saw on the show, plus my own technique, and now is getting much better.  Hopefully soon we can even use the local dog park!  Here's hoping!
