Not Iambic….Do Not Accept…
These tags I’ll pop, and boast in rhyming verse
that what I wear puts swagger in my gait;
though twenty shillings have I in my purse,
my self-esteem and manhood both inflate
when lofty furs I purchase for a cent.
Thy grandpa’s clothes are worthy salvage, though
they smell a trifle musty. Still, I spent
much less to dress myself from head to toe.
To save or not to save? The question’s moot.
I’ll never give my coin to high-street crooks.
These dusty shelves will yield their hidden loot
to those, like me, more frugal in their looks.
Like ancient coins washed up on distant shores,
I’ll find my treasures in these thrifty stores.
- Macklemore, “Thrift Shoppe”

I bugged a student to get a video of Prowl going the teeter. His form still needs work. Posting because a year ago he would shut down within two meters of it and it took about 6 months to counter condition him.

An interesting model of our solar system’s path as it travels through space in the Milky Way.
Certainly a departure from usual models that show the Sun as a static object, which it certainly isn’t
I had no idea this was happening. Where are we going?
To fuck some shit up
Around the center of the Milky Way, which is heading towards the Andromeda Galaxy. And our whole Local Group is moving towards the Virgo Cluster.
But we’ll never actually reach the Virgo Cluster because space is expanding between us and them faster than we’re moving towards it.

5 minutes of the border collie trying about 100 different things
3 minutes of the border collie going through the last 20 things they tried in various sequences
2 minutes of the border collie further narrowing it down
Slight pause as the border collie looks at you.

Bone-a-Fide Dog Ranch
We will be out of town twice in the summer and again during the holidays. The sitter we have is decent, but she only has an apartment and Yoshi won’t bathroom on a leash (she’s had a yard for so long I don’t think she realizes she can? I don’t know, she literally will not…
Mine go to a social kennel which sounds similar to this except that mine has the dogs separated to sleep. I have had good experiences and my dogs like going there. Ratchet came home once with a small scrape on his nose but nothing serious .
My place does several different groups of dogs based on temperment and size
