I don’t know if anyone out there is reading this or not. I’d like to think that someone is! I keep getting hits, but it’s mostly my pet entries…which is just fine.
With those entries, I’m trying to educate the masses on pet foods and help people make educated choices. The food recalls lately have been pretty scary. And yeah, I know that in the past dogs and cats were fed dog/cat chow for x amount of years and they lived a good happy life. I think times have changed and I really think that the ingredients going into the foods are different than they used to be. I could go on and on…so I’ll get down off the soapbox.
On a similar note though…and then I swear I’m done…I ran across this article when I was reading my blogs tonight: Pet Dogs Can ‘Catch’ Human Yawns
And a blurb:
Yawning is known to be contagious in humans but now scientists have shown that pet dogs can catch a yawn, too.
The copying activity suggests that canines are capable of empathising with people, say the researchers who recorded dogs’ behaviour in lab tests.
Until now, only humans and their close primate relatives were thought to find yawning contagious.
The team – from Birbeck College, University of London – reports its findings in Biology Letters.
Yawning, although sometimes a response to extreme stress, is more often a sign of tiredness; but the reason for why yawning is catching is not fully understood.
Isn’t that interesting??!
I still haven’t had time to get into making a scrappy page. Maybe tomorrow night. I came home from work tonight and the hubbs was sleeping on the couch. I didn’t want to wake him because he’s usually a donkey when I do that, so I just went to lay down with the dogs. I fell asleep and woke up at 7:00pm! Whoops! I quickly fed the animals and then started my online routine.
I had a nice little email saying I got 3.00 in my paypal account from a survey company I do surveys for…woo hoo!!! and so with that burning a hole in my account, I went scrappy kit shopping. I got these two from Digitreats.
I have been really into these kits. I love the bright colors in the JUMP kit, and the SKIP kit has nice soft girly colors. I got the ‘G’ kit because I love the frame and it has the Grandparents paper. And I got the felt kit because I like the idea of having a notebook. I can’t wait to use them, I just need to get some inspiration. I should browse the net and see other people’s layouts and see if it doesn’t spark some ideas.
I need to get going here for the night…gotta make something for lunch and give the puppa his pills. He’s gone 99 days seizure free!! I’ll have to make him a little graphic tomorrow!
