HELLO FROM REHAB!!!!   Not sure if anything's been shared but Sunday dinner at my parents' a couple weeks ago was in fact an elaborate ruse to stage an intervention.  Actually it wasn't very

My dog doesn't always bark loudly in the middle of the night, but when she does it's for no reason at all.

My dog often dreams whatever dogs dream about and wakes up barking at nothing.

He was probably dreaming about delicious sticks to eat in the backyard.

I'm lucky that none of my dogs were ever stupid like that, but some are definitely really dumb.  Unfortunately, you know your dog will go back to eating sticks tomorrow.  No lessons learned.

yeah. she was out there eating sticks last night and again this morning.

my goal this weekend is to rake them all up so she has no more to choose from. the bigger ones are gone now but she's rooting out little twigs all over the place.

My wife’s father was diagnosed with rapidly deteriorating Alzheimer’s this morning.  Everybody else having a good one?

You could take that to mean that the Alzheimer’s is rapidly deteriorating...

Yay?

Instead of removing all of the sticks, which will be a never-ending problem, you should try to train it out of her.  I would think it's similar to how some dogs will destroy the furniture.  You can get a spray at a pet store that will be repulsive, but not poisonous, to a dog.  Leave some sticks around, but spray them with this dog training spray, and hopefully she will start associating the sticks with this repulsive smell and taste instead of the deliciousness she currently thinks of them.  I am no training expert, so you should look into other ways to train this behavior out of her.

You’d be surprised at how often this stuff doesn’t work.  Dogs are stubborn like people.

Training can take time, but there are probably other ways to train out this behavior.

Also, I'm not stubborn.  I just like doing things in a particular way and am reluctant to change.

Smarter than your average bear:

Quote

When state Fish and Wildlife agents recently found a black bear passed out on the lawn of Baker Lake Resort, there were some clues scattered nearby — dozens of empty cans of Rainier Beer.

The bear apparently got into campers’ coolers and used his claws and teeth to puncture the cans. And not just any cans.

“He drank the Rainier and wouldn’t drink the Busch beer,” said Lisa Broxson, bookkeeper at the campground and cabins resort east of Mount Baker.

Fish and Wildlife enforcement Sgt. Bill Heinck said the bear did try one can of Busch, but ignored the rest. The beast then consumed about 36 cans of Rainier.

A wildlife agent tried to chase the bear from the campground but the animal just climbed a tree to sleep it off for another four hours. Agents finally herded the bear away, but it returned the next morning.

Agents then used a large, humane trap to capture it for relocation, baiting the trap with the usual: doughnuts, honey and, in this case, two open cans of Rainier.

That did the trick.

“This is a new one on me,” Heinck said. “I’ve known them to get into cans, but nothing like this. And it definitely had a preference.”

:shock::lmao:

What was even weirder about this weird story was a follow-up piece -- can't remember if it was the same pub or not -- where a lot of people were defending the pooping because "well, sometimes you just gotta." Is that happening a lot?

At the airport waiting to come home from DC.  Feet are killing me.  One chaperone sprained her ankle and a kid probably tore his MCL jumping off a planter.  Last day degenerated into chaos with everyone just going off to do their own thing.  Walked an average of 9 miles a day.  Have court in the morning, then I’m going to sit in my hot tub and drink beer all day.

Well, dogs are known to eat their vomit and poop. Kind of hard to think that ANYTHING is really all that repulsive to dogs.

Dissolve some ibupropen in water and spray it on the sticks. It tastes hideous and is known for this purpose

For the most part, the parents just hung back and let the kids do their thing.  I didn't really spend a lot of time with my daughter except on the plane there and back, where she wore noise cancelling headphones.  

There was a lot of cool stuff to see.   My daughter and about 2/3 of the group got to be on the floor of the House of Representatives (I didn't, because one of the teachers tried to go through security with a fitbit on and delayed the rest of us).   Saw an original copy of the Magna Carta, got to tour Gettysburg with a very knowledgeable battlefield guide, and the Vietnam exhibit in the National Archives was fascinating.   

The term "death march" was used several times.  According to the app on my daughter's phone, we walked just under 50 miles for the trip.

I wouldn't go with a group of kids again, but it was a good experience overall.

Snuck in a couple late night beers at the hotel bar.

Was that your first time in DC to sight-see?

Gettysburg with a good guide is an awesome experience.

Some great shtick would be to boo every time the tour guide said "the South" or "Confederacy" etc.

Just Ben Konopp the whole deal.

"...and so the Confederates moved to the west..."

"booooooo.....booooooo...go be treasonous somewhere else....boooo..."
