If you have a Labrador, listen up!

20120320-114159.jpg
Obviously, this picture is not a Lab, nor is it either of my dogs. However, I couldn’t resist its cute face when deciding on a photo! If you live in Indiana, you know that the weather is slightly confused at the moment. It has been in the 80s, and it’s March! I don’t know anything about weather, but I can only imagine what that might spell for the summer. On to a more important note…I love food. πŸ˜‰ surprise! I also love local, organic, seasonal food! What better way to get these foods than a garden. Now is the time to start thinking about where you might put one, what you want to grow, and how on earth to do it. I want everyone to stay tuned for more garden info about which plants give the most bang for your buck, the easiest to grow, the ones that come back every year, etc. However, today’s post is all about what your dog is doing while you are trying to do all that yard work!
Last year, my mom could not believe how long my dog would play ball. You could throw a tennis ball for hours, and she didn’t seem to bat an eye. You could buy yourself a few extra seconds by throwing it in the pool for her to get, but then she would definitely shake water on you…trade off. So, my mom found this awesome solution, and it has been in full action already this year. I decided to share the secret with you guys because it has been a lifesaver. It is an automatic fetch machine! My dog has true Lab skills in her because it took only a couple hours to teach her to put the ball in the bucket, fetch it, and bring it back. It is called ‘go dog go’ and it is worth every penny! She will literally play fetch with herself for hours while I prep the garden, clean up leaves, or whatever needs done. As I am writing this post, I can hear it launching every couple minutes. You dog owners know exactly what I’m talking about when I say ‘relentless energy!’

In addition to this little ball of energy, I also have an older, wiser dog that learns the tricks. So, if you also have an older, wiser dog, watch for him to sit at the launch point to steal the ball, or the infamous ‘grab and go’ straight from the shoot. He’s always getting the last word, but those antics aren’t tiring out the young one. Just a warning. πŸ˜‰

    I leave a comment when I appreciate a article on a site or if I have
    something to add to the conversation. Usually it is a result of
    the passion displayed in the article I read.
    And after this article If you have a Labrador, listen
    up! | Amberwood Terrace Chiropractic. I was moved enough to drop a thought :
    -) I actually do have a few questions for you if it’s okay.

    Could it be simply me or do some of these remarks look as if they are left by brain dead individuals?
    πŸ˜› And, if you are writing at other places, I would like to follow anything fresh
    you have to post. Would you list all of all your community
    sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page
    or twitter feed?

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or
    copyright infringement? My blog has a lot of completely
    unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but
    it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement.
    Do you know any techniques to help protect against content from being ripped off?
    I’d truly appreciate it.
