Better call the Chiwawa’s

Have you ever thought about dogs and breeds before? I bet not, at least at the moment, and even as a dog owner you choose a breed that fits to you. Now having time to let my mind wander around and think about different things instead of sitting in my office, so I started to think about dogs.

There are the dogs that like to hang-out and do their own thing and when possible make themselves comfortable on the sofa and take a nap and enjoy a bit of quality time on the sofa instead of napping in their baskets…. Really the choice between napping in a basket or napping on the sofa…. The choice is clear the “SOFA” is the winner!

Or the innocent look dogs give you after they have done something they shouldn’t have done. If the dog could speak it would definitely blame someone else, because there is no way with that look on their face that they could have chewed-up and destroyed the new cushions on the sofa or when they can’t get their own way, and then as experience shows; the dog pees on a potted plant in the living room.. and I would love to just scream at the dog, but somehow even when I did it didn’t seem to phase him.

When I think back to our Jack Russel that we once had… he ruled the house and had everything and everybody under control. Nothing went unnoticed nor did he fear anything!

He knew how to wrap people around his “paws”, when it came to someone new coming around for a BBQ (his favorite event in the summer months.). There he would sit and stare at the person and pretend that he hadn’t eaten in weeks, and of course he got his way and got a piece of steak or such, and would walk off as if to say “ hey, I know how to get what I want”!!
I am sure some of you can relate to this as a dog owner.

My dog knew everyone in our neighborhood and who was BBQing, so he would invite himself to the neighbors ,so that he could enjoy an afternoon or evening of good food and attention, then come back home later on with a smile on his face as if to say “ I had a great time and you weren’t invited”.

Though there was a dog in our neighborhood that was a Chiwawa that was always jumping up and down and barking all the time!! I always wondered about that dog because it not only always was barking but was always running around in circles chasing nothing…. I guess maybe that’s the breed???

The dog tried to attack anything that moved, but never managed because the other dogs in the neighborhood didn’t want to be friends with the Chiwawa… They would just stand there and look down at the Chiwawa as if to say “What’s your problem and find some other dog to hang-out with”.

When thinking back and reflecting about my Jack Russel, he was probably right about all the barking that the Chiwawa did and there was no content in it; simply just a bunch of hot air… Like people can be in our society today.

Now is time to reflect on those times with your dog; whether it by funny or not.
Have a great day wherever you are!

Gotta Go!!!!

This time I am really speechless as to what is not on offer throughout the world, but then again I am just way behind the times!!! That’s life, I guess……

Now here it is… register your toilet at home online so for the folks who “have to” know where they can go. I am not too sure about this, because do I want strangers popping by saying “Hey, I need to go.” And what happens if I need to go then too and only have one bathroom.. Paying guest first and I have to hold it until they are finished or how does it work????

Or you live in a high-rise apartment building and the neighbors get wind of the fact that you let strangers use your toilet at your place, and how life is and people by instinct are nosy…. there you go half of the building has signed up to say they “gotta go” and you’ve got a line-up outside your door and down the hall and maybe to another floor, because so many people in the building what to see how you live and what your bathroom looks like. Plus, you have to greet each person show them were the toilet is located check to see if you have enough toilet paper or you tell everyone to bring their own toilet paper( money saving tricks) and if you don’t charge a users fee your water bill could skyrocket from all those flushes…

And how long are the people allowed to stay in there??? Need an egg timer, so once you’re over the allotted 5 minutes then a parking meter starts metering the length of time you are sitting on the toilet… I mean really now… I see this as a money making adventure where I can turn my boring bathroom into a cash earning room without investing a major amount of money…

Ok, so someone pops by and says they “ gotta go” … First question to ask: Do you have your toilet paper with you? If they say no then I could offer a couple of sheets for a reasonable fee of let’s say $ 10.00 and show them where the bathroom is located..
I would make sure the user paid a deposit first before entering my bathroom … Cash then go… No cash no go!! Simple as that and send them on their merry way.

What could be stressful for me is that because it probably some App, that means I need my cell phone on 24/7 and if someone decides they have to go at let’s say at 2:00am in the morning when I am asleep…. Sorry, I am not getting up for you!

Again you have someone new in your neighborhood and they have registered with this set-up… well than there is nothing easier then popping by to use the toilet to get to know them!

But I do see a couple of problems that could happen if you are not on your toes… Your toilet is in the same room as the shower & sink… Now, what do you do if the person in there thinks “Ah, I need a shower”, and then takes a shower… Of course they have brought their own soap and towel with them. Maybe turn off the water in the shower before letting strangers use your toilet or what???

I feel this whole concept hasn’t been really thought out and I personally will not be taking part in this whole toilet stuff!

But whatever you decide… Have fun at it!
