WOW! That’s quite a list! Thank you!
I come to read Rose Is Rose because Rose and Jimbo have that kind of love.I am lucky enough to have it as well, and my heart sister and heart brother, Jon and Velda have it as well. True story: Once J. and V. had an argument, and both stormed out of the house angrily. Jon turned left, Velda turned right and they walked around the block to cool off. They met one street over, realized they were each glad to see the other, and settled their argument immediately , coming back home arm in arm, smooching every few steps. :)
Sigh! It’s Nurse Ratched. Cratchitt worked for Scrooge.
P.S. My grandparents used to frequent a bar called the Pig & Whistle. They, naturally, reversed the initials and called it the P-ss & Wiggle!
I’d love to see a list of pubs he frequents. So far, I recall the Jolly Riveters (which I think is the one Jack runs), the Rose and Crown, the Spotted Duck, the Pig & Whistle And the Hammered Henchmen… no wait… that last one’s from Scary Gary. laughs Maybe he drinks there as well!
The “occupant” of the desk is implied by its contents, besides the phone. Tic Tacs, Diet Coke, a Sharpie. Yes.
Having a dog that robotically walks on the handler’s left, in the “heel” position is only for shows or in a highly distractive area. But careening wildly about back and forth, left to right and back isn’t good either. And DEFINITELY not with the dog hauling hard on the leash, so that he or she chokes on the collar! The best walk is a middle ground. The dog keeps the lead slack, but is free to move to the side or slightly ahead, or dawdle, but generally keep pace with the handler. All my dogs knew that if they wanted to stop and sniff, it was permitted! I would let them sniff to their heart’s content. They were, however, expected to be mannerly on lead. No jumping up on people, or frantically barking and tugging. And none of my dogs (with the exception of my Guide Dog) ever had to be harnessed to prevent pulling. They knew better. Harnesses may prevent neck injuries, and can be good training aids, but every dog needs to be properly collar trained and leash aware.
No, nearly ALL dogs are trainable and handleable. It’s humans who don’t make the effort to get between rover’s ears, and find the source of the behavior to alter it. Dogs actually want to obey and be pleasing. As social and pack animals, they need to find their place within any structure. If there is no structure, the dog will make his or her OWN structure.
“You can edit DNA on the fly?” shrug I guess I’ll just wait until you can edit it in humans.
Someone needs to be retrained…
