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…

Brodie turns up allergic again..this time to nuts!?

Six days ago I had a reaction to political shenanigans that resulted in very irritating hives.  Done with that…But no…this morning my golden dog body had an allergic reaction to nuts…that’s right nuts…nuts baked into these political cakes we’ve been yelping about.

Totally my fault…totally…I went for the cake…just sitting there…snatched the political cake and who knew…there were nuts…so many different kinds and types of nut-cases in that cake that I needed a Benadryl.  Dogs are especially allergic to nuts and the only type of nut, according to Internet research that dogs can eat are Hazel Nuts. (But… avoid them as they can cause a dog to choke.) The nuts I consumed in that political cake had different proper names…no Hazel in there…but names familiar to you.

Be golden in your thoughts and don’t work the table and don’t “take the cake.”  Don’t expect disclaimers or warnings.
