  1. Favourite picture of yourself?

    Me and Joker - 10 years ago - a month after Joker arrived from Spain.  
  2. What's got you flummoxed today?

      It's definitely an offence. A couple of links:  
  3. What's got you flummoxed today?

      Well, in that case you ask someone to walk your dog for you. As I have done for people unable to walk their dogs due to illness, and when I broke my ankle my daughter walked my dog. 
  4. What's got you flummoxed today?

    While out with a neighbour walking our dogs along a country lane this morning we saw a lazy woman "walking" her dog while driving slowly in her car alongside the dog. It's the first time I've seen anyone doing this and was so flummoxed I forgot to take a photo. Since then I've googled and found out that it's an Ordnungswidrigkeit. 
  5. Climate change

  6. Why are you happy today?

      Hopefully Takis will take care that it is also her last and have her neutered. 
  7. Why are you happy today?

    Just watched the video. So skinny and hungry the poor thing. The pups look well nourished, she's such a good mum. I'm so happy that Agapi and her pups are now in such good hands. She even let Takis stroke her. Have also just sent a donation.
  8. Brexit / Applying for German citizenship

      Entlassung aus der bisherigen Staatsbürgerschaft.
  9. The New Gillette Social Awareness Campaign

      I'm aware that you use this phrase rather frequently. 
  10. In the original article posted here it says the woman who was killed was walking her dogs, yet in other articles it says she was walking only one dog, as in this article:    
  11.   Considering the accidents that can happen I would have thought such hunts, especially when 90+ dogs are involved, would be broadcast so people are warned. Wouldn't there be signs up warning people entering the woods? I can't say, as they don't happen where I live. 
  12.   There are so many articles in the meantime concerning this case and of course the hunters are never at fault. This type of hunting in France is like a circus, it seems, with carriages etc. Many of them aren't even proper hunters, many with no hunting licences etc. It's a disgrace. They have a big lobby in France, big money is involved, so the problem is not going to go away, similar to the gun lobby in the USA. 
  13.   OMG. I'm old enough to remember that song. I even wore the same kind of skirt and blouse and the hair do with the long hair and the bun on top. Thank you for bringing up memories of long ago. 
  14.   Well, John, when you're out walking with dogs you should train yourself to always scan your surroundings and watch your dogs simultaneously. That's your job as leader of the pack.  
  15.   I've read some of the articles about this type of hunting and apparently they don't care about the deer or the killing, they simply love to hear the sound of the dogs baying. They're crazy.
