Top 5 Things Your Dog Hates (with pictures)

Dogs are like people, they have likes and dislikes. I thought it would be important to emphasize the five things dogs hate the most. This way new dog owners have a leg up with their next family pet. I’ve included photos so there is no confusion.

1. Dogs hate comfortable beds.

2. Dogs hate being close to people and especially don’t like napping on them.

3. Dogs hate peanut butter, so never let them lick the lid.

4. Dog hate fruits and vegetables, and run the other way when you have a carrot.

5. Dogs hate exercise, mostly walks and fetch, anything adventurous. So make sure never to take them anywhere they can do these things.

Thank you for stopping by, I hope you learned something new about what dogs hate.

Random Humor, Spotlight on Writing

When Do Writers Read?

I started reading Sycamore Row by John Grisham in March. I’m still only 1/2 way done. (And it’s a good book!). My writer friends are always posting about books they are reading, and I am thinking when do you have time to read?!?

I do make attempts to read but they always go south.

  • If I sit down to read 88% of the time I fall asleep within the first 3 pages, even with the best books.
  • If I am reading my mind wanders to my TO DO LIST.
  • If I am reading I think about each sentence and scene and what I like or don’t like about it as a writer, reading each paragraph until I give up in actually moving to the next page.
  • If I sit down to read I notice my hands and that they
  • A. need new nail polish
  • B. need lotion
  • C. need cuticle care
  • D. notice more freckles which leads to thinking about aging and before I know it I’ve read to 2 pages but didn’t comprehend any of it.

So, when do you find time to read?

There is a store that I never knew existed. I drove past and was…intrigued by their sign ~ “Hair Salon and Videos”

Sometimes a cat will sneak into your garage, be prepared

I was informed that one needs a wheelchair license to self-propel themselves in their wheelchair. Or at least that was what I was told by a gentleman

How to Tell When Your Dog Runs Your Life

On the counter next to your salt and pepper shaker… is the peanut butter jar.

You make decisions on going out or having people over based on your dog’s schedule.

You only do yard work to please the dog.

The dog is fed meals before you even start cooking your own.

From my dogs to all my visitors MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

20131123_171216Cookie dough wrapper desperately (“PLEASE”) warns ladies (come on we know it) not to eat raw cookie dough.

Only in Arizona do the electric freeway signs warn drivers “STORM, WET ROADS, DRIVE CAREFUL” (Just in case we were not aware of what was falling from the sky).

The best idea yet, to make sure my Christmas tree only has shatter-proof ornaments. I have dog tails whacking the tree constantly.

Holiday Ads

I received a stack of black Friday and other Christmas ads that clearly needed my opinion.

wpid-20131128_125343.jpgI’m guessing the California candle smells like a beach, but the New York candle…are we talking about downtown city smell or upstate smell?

wpid-20131128_130054.jpgI don’t know any pet that actually keeps these on for more than 0.007 seconds.

wpid-20131128_131631.jpgI just found these owls to be rather unsettling…

wpid-20131128_133421.jpgThese are the only two ads that peaks my interest…should this be of concern? haha

***For those wondering, THE BIRD had a small issue for the recipe I used (cooking temperature) but I resolved it 🙂

This year will be my very first attempt at cooking THE BIRD. I have made the traditional side dishes for many years, but never THE BIRD. And because I am 110% against shopping of any kind on Thanksgiving (gas stations, grocery stores, malls, etc) I have three options.

1. Double, triple check to make sure I have everything before midnight Wednesday.

2. Simply…don’t mess up THE BIRD!

3. Have back-up dinner just in case. (boxed Mac & Cheese)

Happy Thanksgiving to all my followers 🙂
