Haiku: Tendrils bring blossoms then Peas

Tender thin green vines
Wrapping tendrils cling and reach
Blossoms come the peas

Golden Brodie barks on…moving and pets…

Now is “the time to sell a home”…that’s what my retriever dog ears hear anyway. Spring has sprung, kids will be out of school soon…folks are making their moves.  But the family dog could be clueless and possibly not prepared to relocate the dog bed.

If you’re not selling, you might just know someone who is.  If they have a dog…you might want to share some insights into how moves possibly impact pets and how to help pets deal with relocation.  Paws up for caring and being mindful of our four-legged friends.

Golden Brodie shares: Dogs that dig the past

Yes… digging is part of many dogs lives…but…there are dogs that get into locating bones that are hundreds of years old…yep…archaeology on four legs.  These dogs have such self-control…once they find bones…they back off…moon walk backwards and NEVER touch the bones.  Can you image that one?  Read on for golden enlightenment.  Bones them bones…them dry bones.

Brodie’s History Nuggets: old is new again?!

Stop, look and golden listen…there is not a day that goes by that I do not hear about fake news…fake news on this side…fake news from that side…fake news rolling in the middle…

Just want you to know that fake news was alive and well during George Washington‘s time.  That’s right…I mean that is correct…General George Washington experienced slander through forged letters that attempted to undermine his commitment to winning the Revolutionary War and freeing the colonies from the heavy and oppressive rule of King George III.  Interesting that these slanders seem to have been an inside job from a Loyalist, who fled to England and died there. But even more interesting, Gen. Washington went on to become President Washington, the first president of the United States of America.  Now that was a genuine golden beginning…
