The Choking Game for Dogs

By now you've heard of the Choking Game where kids deprive themselves of oxygen to achieve a small rush. Some kids get injured. Some kids die. It's horrible. Well, apparently this type of reckless behaviour isn't reserved strictly for children. I went into Ernie's room (yes, my dog has his own room) and found something very peculiar in his sock drawer. It was a bag of Ol' Roy dog biscuits with about 5 or 6 chocolate truffles throw in.

At first I was appalled that he would bring that inferior dog food into our home, but when I found the truffles, I was speechless. Come to find out it's some sort of Russian roulette for dogs. A couple dogs sit around in a circle and you close your eyes and grab a treat from the bag. Some are dog biscuits. Some are truffles. Some make your coat shiny. Some kill you.

Speaking of drug addicts, Rush Limbaugh said on his radio program that the media is making too big a deal over this whole oil spill fiasco. "The ocean will take care of this on it's own. . . " Limbaugh said. "It's natural. It's as natural as the ocean water is". I agree. What better way to solve a man-made catastrophe than to pass the buck back to mother nature?

And as apathetic as I am to the environment and Rush Limbaugh, I'm equally apathetic to what Ernie does in his free time. Honestly, I think he's a giant tool. Never really cared for the guy. But what I really don't like is being lied to. Ernie had the audacity to say he was holding them for a friend.

I'm going to poke RL with a straw, suck the fat out of him, and turn him into a homeless shelter.

Wow, Lukas' arrival has really made Ernie act out. Just let him know that you love him no matter what and that Lukas will sleep in the yard when he's old enough.
