Something to think about!

THOUGHT YOU SHOULD BE AWARE! Although it says it was verified on - says that the information could not be verified due to its lack of contacts and contents. Although I do believe it is important to keep in mind. Just because it can't be verified doesn't mean for certain it isn't true.
Always be safe - wash your pets feet after they walk through chemicals whether it be outside or undried cleaning agents. is the site you can find the information yourself regarding this forward. You can make your own judgements but it is still to be a matter of least at my home.


THIS IS TRUE & VERIFIED ON SNOPES.COM Recently someone had to have their 5 year old German Shepherd dog put down
due to liver failure. The dog was completely healthy until a few weeks ago,
so they had a necropsy done to see what the cause was. The liver levels were unbelievable, as if the dog had ingested poison of some kind. The dog was kept inside, and when he's outside, someone's with him, so the idea of him getting into something unknown was hard to believe.

My neighbor started going through all the items in the house. When he got to the Swiffer Wetjet, he noticed, in very tiny print, a warning which stated "may be harmful to small children and animals."

He called the company to ask what the contents of the cleaning agent are and
was astounded to find out that antifreeze is one of the ingredients (actually, he was told it's a compound which is one molecule away from antifreeze. Therefore , just by the dog walking on the floor cleaned with the solution, then licking its own paws, it ingested enough of the solution to destroy its liver. Soon after his dog's death, his housekeeper's two cats also died of liver failure. They both used the Swiffer Wetjet for quick cleanups on their floors. Necropsies weren't done on the cats, so they couldn't file a lawsuit, but he asked that we spread the word to as many people as possible they don't lose their animals.

This is equally harmful to babies and small children that play on the floor a lot and put their fingers in their mouths a lot.

Momma just caught me today. She knew I did this but never caught me in the act.
Luckily for her and all of you Dogsters the camera was near by.

One of my favorite things to do -when able- is open the refrigerator door and steal all the alcoholic beverages.

Usually just the beer!

I always place them standing nice, neat, and upright.

Do any of you know how to get the caps off the bottles???

Looking for a good time,
Duke Boy

Dad tried to keep it a secret but he told Momma what he was getting for a present for Momma, Ruby & me...Pops said he was gonna try and use it too.
We’re getting a Canadian Kicksled which is a great sled for beginners with a 1-2 dog team. Momma wanted a freight style sled, but Dad pointed out that it would be better to get a smaller sled to get Ruby and me used to it.
He also pointed out that our team consists of only two dogs. Momma said that she would be more than happy to pick up some more dogs to accommodate a three to six dog sled. Pops wasn’t amused…The sad part is I knew Momma wasn’t Joshin’ around. The sled we’re getting is a rugged north woods version of the Norwegian kicksled. It can be folded up and easily taken anywhere.
It will only cost about $300 leaving the rest of the $200 to go toward equipment.
We’ll be sledding by my Gotcha Day!!!

As you know, the Dukester isn't afraid of anything. But occasionally I wish I was. It's no fun to be fearless and thinking everything’s a joke. Okay, it's tons of fun but on rare occasions I think I am missing out...on some level. So, I made a list of phobias I wish I had, and then to even up the score I listed a couple of the phobias I'm glad I don't have. Here Goes It...

Fears I wish I had:

***Arachibutyrophobia- Fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of the mouth***

Reason: Have you ever seen anyone in this predicament –not necessarily in fear of it just with peanut butter stuck to the roof of their mouth. It’s Hilarious! Now add the benefit of laughing at a scaredy cat and combine them. I would never fail to amuse.

***Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia- Fear of long words***

Reson: Just an awesome thing to be afraid of…com’on do you need a better explanation. You are the epitome of normal until someone says a long word and then out comes Mr. Ballistic –scratching, clawing his way straight outta normalsville!

***Kathisophobia- Fear of sitting down***

Reason: I could stare at my butt and Scream in terror every time it hit the ground and just forget about being commanded to sit. I could play all day! I wouldn’t be hindered; there is still lying down.

***Peladophobia- Fear of bald people***

Reason: When being walked down the street I could Yawp in terror every time I saw a baldy pass along side me. I could Circle the person holding the leash and strain and pull and struggle. The baldy would figure it was them and feel so self conscious. All the passers by would feel bad for me and be laughing at baldy over there.
I mean no disrespect to any of the baldies out there. Most of my human family is bald and I love them just the same.

***Phronemophobia- Fear of thinking***

Reason: If a thought popped into my head I could swing my head around in loops and buck and ram into things and cry. Momma wouldn’t ever have to ask me “what were you thinking” when I did something crazy.

***Nomatophobia- Fear of names***

Reason: I’d get to run away every time my name was called bawl and cover my ears and shake with fright every time I heard a name called out. Eventually even “Hey You” would register as a name to me. Ah, the chaos.

***Luposlipaphobia - The fear of being pursued by a timber wolf around a kitchen table while wearing socks on a newly waxed floor***

Reason: Self explanatory!

Fears I am glad I don’t have:

***Auroraphobia- Fear of Northern Lights***

Reason: I think they are beautiful and Momma wants to live in Alaska. If I was afraid of them it would be like being terrified of a rain storm or thunder storm here. To much trouble.

***Chionophobia- Fear of snow***

Reason: I love snow. It’s cold, wet, tasty, and soft. There is nothing not to like about snow. Plus, I have a thick double coat. It would be unproductive to be afraid of the one thing I look forward to every year. I am so comfortable in it. Also, snowflakes are beautiful.

***Cibophobia aka Sitophobia- Fear of food***

Reason: Yummy. Food is wonderful. It would be self destructive to turn away and fear food. Food, next to attention, is what I live for and look forward to on a daily basis.

***Kainophobia aka Neophobia- Fear of anything new***

Reason: I like to enjoy new experiences. Variety is the spice of life. There is a first time for everything. I would be bored outta my mind. I'd have to lock myself in an empty room...Assuming it wasn't the first time in there. Ahhggghh! Even thinking about it drives me crazy. I would be scare myself to the point I was afraid of being afraid aka Phobophobia (fear of Fear).

***Panophobia- Fear of everything***

Reason: Same as Neophobia reason

There you have it. Not a complete list but surely enough.

I want to say upfront that Neither I or this article is saying not to spay and neuter your pet. This is timely information on the subject of spaying and neutering. With saying this please enjoy the article.

The Bums Creating Global Warming

October 15th 2009 11:11 am

Do you love snow?
Then this Message is for YOU!
Demon Flash Bandit has figured out a very likely trend. I think it is important for all Dogkind to be wary and warn their humans. Here is the information that Demon has provided. Pass on the message:

"For dogs who have not read my many previous bird bashing entries, birds are horrible creatures who steal a dog's snow. When you hear them start their "singing", the snow is always disappearing, and they are hoping that no one notices the coincidence. This dog has had to waste time and effort learning to speak bird so I can warn the humans of the birds' evil plans. I tell the humans and all you hear from the humans is "listen to how nice they sing". You'd sing too if you were trying to hypnotise the humans into a false state of security, and then WHAMO---global warming. At least a bright spot next month is the annual holdiay--Turkey Eating Day, which always brings a ray of hope to us dogs. Maybe one day, the humans will eat all the birds, and there will no longer be the threat of global warming. Sea gulls are typical birds even if they are bigger. They tend to hang out at restaurants around here to see if they can get some free food. Birds never want to pay for their dinner. They are always trying to get handouts. Therefore, even if a bird isn't evil (which is very rare), they are bums who do nothing good for society. I hope all the dogs reading this work extra hard to get through to their humans that birds are bad. We have to keep trying to get through to the humans.

Demon Flash Bandit ( Birds--Who Needs Them?)"

There you have it Folks. This is News worthy information. Please do your part to inform the dumb founded humans about this evil plot. Birds are obviously succeeding because every year the Global Warming seems to get worse. Please help stop the trend before there is no more snow ever!
