Ruminations of the Easily Amused for July 14 2009

14 July 2009 at 12:50:47 PM

I figured out the trick to getting puppy to stop treating me like his personal chew toy (or trying to, anyway). I found a little squirt gun last night and loaded it up with water today. When puppy came over charging at my ankle, I loudly said NO BITE and squirted him in the face. He stopped and stared at me and tried it again. So I squirted him again. He is a very intelligent dog and he got the message just from that. For the rest of the morning he was in the room with me, playing with his various toys scattered around but he did not come after my ankles, my socks, my fingers, etc. In fact, he let me pet his head all morning at different times without rearing his teeth around to bite. The funny thing is that it's associated only with me because hub came in the room and puppy immediately wanted to bite and play with him. I'm pretty happy about this as I wanted to have puppy in the room with me so that I could work on poppy training him but it was almost impossible with him biting me.

What happens to chicken farmers after this lawsuit? I think this is interesting. ON a very small scale, when I clean out the chicken house, I take the manure and put it in the garden as a rich source of nitrogen. Naturally, though my chickens are able to run around and aren't stuck in little cages all day. Over in Bono, there's a guy who sells manure by the truckload and if I didn't already have chicken manure, I'd probably go over there to get some. What DOES one do when, on a huge level, one has lots of manure? Maybe do like they are in Stephenville and turn it  into biogas?

Sales tax revenues fall sharply in Texas.

I was in the truck yesterday listening to NPR and heard Grassley say this. Hypocrite!

Seems some Texas Tech students don't want Alberto *I Heart Torture* Gonzales on their teaching staff.

The most effective way to potty train a dog that I know of is to take it outside every 30-60 minutes and give praise when it goes.
