Brodie offers humane and effective training lessons to main stream media

When you think there is no more political underbelly available…just when you think the stream of information?!?… provided to you by the media… as they fill their role in reporting and shaping public opinions has hit bedrock…the basement…surprise…it’s not over till the last vote is cast???  Well, I have a golden idea to stop this gutter bleed…some of the media simply needs some golden training and constructive feedback.

I have and continue to do my best to avoid distractions while I am on the lead.  In other words, when I am out in public, socializing and being a solid companion, distractions have been my nemesis..my falling like a rolling rock speeding down hill…distractions keep my off target…distractions rob me of my focus and my ability to contribute in a fine dog way…you know strut my stuff…get the pets and praise that simply make my world a happy place.  So…we should offer very basic training lessons to the media, print..tv…talk radio…major networks…lessons that address “How to Avoid Distractions” while reporting on the issues…I know these are good folks, smart folks, folks that strive to inform and with that said, getting some help for these folks would help to put us all in a better place in this race to the White House.

Please know that I continue to strive to avoid distractions…I am so easily tempted but even my slightest successes give me hope.  Paws up!  Be hopeful.

Brodie woofs about the “Spin”

Round One of the presidential debates…ding, ding…over…who won…who knows…do you care?!?… Some demonstrate excessive patterns with this race to the White House…like pundits, the media, newspaper writers, pollsters…and a conglomerate of human beings that continue to “spin” the “after-debate” to favor their candidate…ad nausea…Hey how about that word!  But let’s get back to spin.

According to the Cambridge Dictionary…spin as a noun refers to a particular way of representing an event or situation to the public so that it will be understood in a way that you want it to be understood, i.e., “They put a positive spin on the story, but no one was fooled.” Now…spin as verb means to turn around and around, or to cause something or someone to turn.  That’s the spin my four-legged brain understands.

See…one of my canine friends suddenly became hooked on the spin…spinning and chasing his tail…he’d do this frantically when he was super stressed out…and once he got going there was no stopping him until he reached complete exhaustion.  His loving people took him to a dog behaviorist…and wow… He learned to run through tunnel agility courses in straight lines…he increased his daily exercise routine & mental stimulation… worked with activity toys, puzzles and problem solving games that helped relieve stress and re-focus his mind and Voila!…no more spin!  So…clearly we have a simple cure to reduce the spin…like…avoid stress…be sure to exercise, run straight lines and work challenging puzzles…got that?!?!

Next debate is between the vice presidential candidates schedules on Tuesday, Oct. 4, 2016, 9 p.m. EST.  Paws up and run those tunnels…
