  • My dog is a bit naughty. He's generally pretty placid, but he likes to chase cars, and he's also just started chasing bikes. Occasionally he'll come across a person that makes him angry too and have a go at them. He never bites, but he has a big bark, and runs right up to them, which is understandably scary. I can recognise his body language when he's about to start chasing after something / someone, but once he's off and running there's no getting him back. I bought an electric shock collar as a last resort to try and break that habit. About a week ago I started clicker training with him, and he picked it up really quickly. His chase behaviour has decreased, although not completely stopped, and on one occasion I got him back once he'd started running. It took him less than a day to associate the click with a treat. I haven't used the electric collar yet, so here's hoping I don't have to.

      • Congratulations Hildemel!


        • Thanks!
          We can't stop grinning. Even her cat somehow seems to understand and has shown support in her own way.


          • Congratulations man! Oh yeah, the engagement thing is good too...


            • Congrats Hildemel, so are you engaged to keep the Subaru or the girlfriend?

              No it's not really funny I know - but it sounded a lot funnier in my tiny brain.



              • Stand up paddle boards. Tried it once about 4 yr ago, didn't connect. Went out twice last week--not the scheming begin...

                  • That's great. I received this spam email once:

                    An Important message awaits you, call and listen now.


                    A turkey reaches an understanding with a roller coaster. If the completely precise freight train somewhat secretly admires a sandwich, then the corporation hibernates. Any grizzly bear can caricature the skyscraper, but it takes a real steam engine to secretly write a love letter to the tabloid. When you see a cargo bay, it means that a so-called cheese wheel panics.

                    It was so good I've kept it. I didn't call the number.


                    • No one likes a panicky cheese wheel...


                      • Sorry, odd post ahead but nothing really TMI:

                        I’ve been pondering the idea to go to a nude beach for a number of years. Not out of sheer curiosity since I’m well aware most of these beaches are full of ederly and while «*looking around*» on a non-nude beach doesn’t seem too much, I’m hardly a «*voyeur*».

                        The other week I decided to kick myself and give it a try, solo of course. No girlfriend, much less friends and eventhough I’m european probably not my family either.

                        Said nude beach wasn’t easily accessible : you’ve got to walk in the sand for a kilometer to find it.

                        When I arrived, half the folks were in speedos or bikini or topless and the other half were naked. It was about time for me to put the towel on the sand and get undressed.

                        I don’t know if it’s a nude beach or regulars but I assume so as the people were staring a bit at me more in a «*who the heck this guy is*» than «*what a stud*» way.

                        I got undressed, put away my phone and it felt like losing virginity again. There I was sitting in front of the dune, naked among other naked people.

                        I’m not unhappy with the experience although I didn’t stay too long. It’s probably much «*fun*» when you know some folks but as a single dude there was no way I was going to go chat the strangers like that.

                        Overall a nice moment of freedom.


                        • I love that perverts feel they can be open and honest on this site.



                          • Thunderstorms coming! About freaking time. Here comes the end of the heatwave.


                            • It took three or more years....

                              ..but I finally saw a Humpback Whale breach again. Twice.


                              • It is weekend and i can count on the fact that some Steven Seagal movie is airing i can mindlessly watch while i fall asleep...
