A post about a movie sex scene, Leonardo DiCaprio, dog actors, chicken liver, and cross dressing Collies

Filming a scene with a dog often involves trainers just off camera doing what they can to get the dog to perform. In the recently released film Wolf of Wall Street a steamy bedroom scene involves Leonardo DiCaprio and co-star Margot Robbie, but it was anything but romantic to film it. In the scene a barking dog stands at the foot of the bed, nipping at DiCaprio’s feet. According to Robbie: The whole thing ended…

A + B = C

Syllogism

Logic. an argument the conclusion of which is supported by two premises, of which one (major premise)  contains the term (major term)  that is the predicate of the conclusion, and the other (minor premise)  contains the term (minor term)  that is the subject of the conclusion; common to both premises is a term (middle term)  that is excluded from the conclusion. A typical form is “All A is C; all B is A; therefore all B is C.”

I posted a few weeks back about a good friend of mine that gave me a couple of bucks.  Today I took them and the fuzzybutts to Coffee’s Country Market to pay for a stranger’s meal like the employees there did when we walked through Lyme CT.

On the day of Malcolm’s anniversary, it was a great honor to re-connect with Jennifer who subsequently lost her dog, Dooley, to cancer last month.

The stipulation was, if they asked who it was from.  It was from Malcolm

Midnight With Malcolm

I’m not MOT but I may as well be an honorary member.  
It’s been eight years since I lost Malcolm and not a second not an hour not a day nor a year has past since I lost my first son that I have forgotten.  
The Yahrzeit candle burns for 24 hours and I lite it now to burn til the morrow when he was given rest.

You were the rock that became the ripple.  
You are the circle not round that I followed and found two ends ever bound.  
My candle is an eternal flame, lit by you and I’ll carry it for as long and as far as I can.

The Beige Parade

Scarf  //  Polka Dot Sweater  //  Shoes  //  Watch

Hey guys! This is Maria from Little Tree, and I am so happy to be guest posting for Melissa while she recuperates and takes care of her baby girl.  Congrats to Melissa and her family during this amazing time and best wishes to her in this new journey of motherhood!

Beige is definitely one of my favorite colors this season. I love pairing it up with browns and blacks for nights out.

Hat  //  Vest  //  Belts  //  Purse  //  Statement Necklace 

For this beige fashion round-up, I picked the items above because I felt like they portrayed exactly what’s in style right now (and also because they feature prints and fun things I have been wanting to try myself!).  Are there any color trends you guys want to try this season? -Maria

Big thanks to my “little sis” Maria (we decided a year or so ago that we are unofficial sisters) for sharing this stylish beige round-up with you guys!  I’m normally a grey girl but I’ve been digging beige as a key neutral a lot this season. Be sure to take a minute or two to stop by Maria’s blog, Little Tree.  She has a knack for combinging the cutest outfit posts with the wisest insights.  You’ll love it. xo, melissa

The body of the spider was about one cm long.

Adopting a Shelter Dog

Adopting a shelter dog and saving it from a possible early death can be a wonderful and fulfilling experience for you, your family and especially the dog.

In most cities the cost to adopt a shelter dog is relatively cheap. Most shelters only charge a modest fee for adopting a dog but that fee actually covers only a small part of the shelter’s costs for food, healthcare, facilities and care giving. Dogs housed in animal shelters will have been examined to make sure they’re in good health before being put up for adoption. The dogs are usually vaccinated, wormed and neutered or spayed. In well-run shelters, a dog’s behavior has been assessed so a prospective new owner can be better matched to the type of dog they want.

Before taking your family to the local animal shelter to choose a new dog, you should understand that the cost of adoption is only a small fraction of the total cost of owning a dog. The average dog owner will spend approximately $ 2,200 per year on food, medical care, vet visits and other dog related expenses. The actual yearly outlay of expenses will vary depending on the type of dog, and also why it ended up in the animal shelter.

Many dogs are surrendered to shelters because they have serious behavior problems, and a new owner will have to contend with those behaviors as well as fear and abandonment issues a dog may have from being mistreated or abandoned to a shelter.

It’s fairly easy to recognize a shelter dog who has fear issues. The dog may run or hide from strangers, bark a lot, or growl at humans. It can be difficult to reduce a dog’s fear, but if you fall in love with a dog displaying those symptoms, understand that those fears can be overcome with patience on your part.

If you’re thinking of adopting a shelter dog, you should get some background information on any dog you’re seriously considering. There are some dogs in shelters who have been given back several times because new owners couldn’t cope with the dog’s crying, barking or other destructive behavior when left alone. Sometimes this is caused simply by separation anxiety where the dog becomes fearful every time its owner leaves it alone. You can lessen this fear by spending as much time as possible with your new dog, gradually cutting down on the amount of time spent one-on-one.

Unfortunately, many dogs who end up in shelters have never been properly potty trained. If this is the case, you’ll need to treat the dog as it were a puppy. Set a regular schedule of when you take your dog outside to go. When it does its duty, reward it with a treat and praise. It shouldn’t take long for the dog to associate going outside to the bathroom with getting a tasty treat.

Many dogs are surrendered to shelters simply because their owners never taught them how to behave. A dog may display unwanted behavior such as jumping on people, humping people’s legs, or ignoring you when you tug on its leash.

While some people are not bothered by this type of behavior, some are and become very distressed by their inability to correct the behavior. The poor dog then ends up abandoned to a shelter. If the owner had a little more patience and understanding of dog behavior, these unwanted actions could be easily corrected with a little bit of positive training. If you’re adopting a shelter dog be sure it’s the right one for you before taking it home.
