What would you say about your boyfriend/girlfriend?

Drunken Lament [Ludo]

(I hope that this means that any future boy/girlfriend of mine will be funny and someone who I listen to when I want to cheer up, not that I’ll be sad and drunk with them… or that he/she/I will be drunk and needy through the relationship)

What is the first thing you say in the mornings?

Love Cats [The Cure]

(I wish I could have a cat [ALLERGIES]… but usually my first thing I say is “mph…” or “NNNNnnnnnnnn….” If I’m feeling REALLY unwilling to get up)

Your teacher is…

Breakaway [Kelley Clarkson]

(I would like to get away from ONE of my teachers… Will deal though :D)

What’s written on your class’s blackboard?

Here without you [3 Doors Down]

(considering a good portion of my classmates only show up occasionally, that’s funny 😀 They’ll never see the message)

How would you describe your neighbors?

A Moment like this [Various Artists]

(They haven’t eaten any of my stuff since I got back, so I’ll assume it’s a happy thought… unless it’s about how some people wait a lifetime for a moment like this, and could have gone another lifetime without someone you don’t know or really like eating your food)

What would your best friend say about you?

Riot [Three Days Grace]

(… 😀 I’ll take that as more fun than dangerous or sketchy)

How do you feel right now?

Just Because [Jane’s Addiction]

(Well, that’s as good an answer as “I dunno” or a shrug… or even “fine.” Amused would also work right now :D)

What’s on your bedside table right now?

Memory [Cats]

(Yes I have Cats {musical} music… and I guess memory would work. Aloe plant I finally remembered to ask for, a fork and two spoons I need to remember to clean up, and a variety of pills to make sure I don’t get scurvy or anything :D)

What did you do when you woke up this morning?

Step Into a World [Dance Much 1997]

Cut the Curtains [Billy Talent]

(Perhaps code for “GET BACK HERE! ENCORE!”)

If you had to write a Twilight fanfiction right now, what would it be titled?

A song you would sing at your school’s talent show is…

Love Train [Big and Rich]

(Hah! That’s fun :P)

Your life’s theme song would be…

Whatsername [Green Day]

(Ouch, but understandable 😛 Not many people remember my name (difficult name to remember—it’s odd) and I’m not the kind of person to slap you in the face with my personality 😀 But I hope that in regards to the lyrics, I’m someone who you’d regret not keeping in touch with)

How would you describe what you are doing right now?

Colossal [Wolfmother]

(Not that big a deal actually :D)

If you had to go and jump off a building, what would your last words be?

I love you [Barenaked Ladies]

(Aw, my phone has a sense of humour and can be sweet. It would be sweet that those would be my last words, but I’d prefer to say them while NOT taking my own life… Way to show that I love my family—I’m just going to put them through severe emotional trauma. A boy wouldn’t be worth it.)

Your motto is…

Dogs and Champions [Mighty Mighty Bosstones] (:D I don’t know quite how bad this makes me seem…)

Amsterdam [Coldplay]

(Amsterdam is beautiful, and has gorgeous buildings and a fascinating history. I would like to go there one day.)

If someone says “Is this okay?” you say…

Don’t Go Knockin’ On My Door [Britney Spears]

(Wow, if my ‘motto’ doesn’t make me seem a bit of a bitch, this does… But then again, unless it’s directly involving me, I have no responsibility towards others decisions. I can give my opinions, but I didn’t force them to do anything, so Britney is right :P)

How would you describe yourself?

Rebel Yell [Billy Idol]

(Right, rebellious 😛 And yelling… I’m just soooo loud. )

What do you look for in a guy/girl?

Love me Do [The Beatles]

(Also, ‘I Want to Hold Your Hand’The Night Before’ we ‘Come Together’, ‘Oh! Darling’, ‘I Want You’, ‘I Need you’, with you ‘I feel fine‘Eight Days a Week’, because in ‘The End’All you Need is Love’… I can be romantic and use Beatles songs too 😀)

How do you feel today?

Champagne for my real friends, Real pain for my Sham friends [Fallout boy]

What is your life purpose?

Behind these Hazel eyes [Kelly Clarkson]

(Which makes sense because I have blue eyes… maybe my life purpose is to get people to actually notice things… fits with my visual art classes)

What do you think of your friends?

Big Dumb Rocket [Our Lady Peace]

Don’t Phunk with my heart [Black Eyed Peas]

(I’d like to believe that at my funeral I’d be able to get some laughs, even if it’s from odd funeral music choices)

Any last words?

Goodbye Grace [Spirit of the West]

(Goodbye Grace. I wish I knew someone named Grace… actually I think I do, and I didn’t like her that much, except that she taught me something funny about squirrels.)

I hope that someone else decides to do this, It’s pretty funny 😀

Woofstock Toronto 2011 Part 2!

On to Gwynn related things about Woofstock!

Yeah!

But as a quick side note, Lexy told me that she thought it was funny that I added a description of the dog that the shelter was promoting next to its booth picture, in a way that I wasn’t entirely sure if she meant funny ha-ha or funny weird-and-why-did-you-do-that? So I want to point out that if you are interested in checking out the sites for more than donating/just checking it out purposes, you might want to know what kind of dog you are checking out.

Save the tiny lassies so they can be friends with your little Timmy!

One that I missed was the sheltie one, but that’s because I couldn’t fit in this picture with it, and I like to stay constant, so for those of you who want a cute little (like tiny) Lassie dog, who is not the kind of dog who will run up to strangers and jump on them, is fairly calm (with exercise) and is known to bark a bit (Alert! There is someone at the door!… got that? Kay.)

Back to Gwynn.

Gwynn had lots of fun at Woofstock for a variety of reasons, and while one of them was because Lexy (aka The Boss [Who Can Do NO Wrong]) was there, it wasn’t the MAIN reason.

Yes there were dozens of friendly Friend Dogs within easy reach on every street and block corner.

Yes this was turning out to be a very Long Walk, and while his girlfriend Sadie wasn’t there, there were still Many Friends.

No, it wasn’t because the car ride to get close wasn’t long (because it was kind of long, what with a couple of streets blocked off for this and the fact that it’s Downtown Toronto).

No it wasn’t because we didn’t make him go back into the car within 1-2 hours of getting there.

No, the reason why (at least I figure) Gwynn had so much fun at Woofstock was because everyone who owned a dog was giving him treats, everyone who was working in a booth was giving him treats, everyone who was showcasing their chewables were letting him sniff (but not chew) their chewables, and there were bits and pieces of left behind treats on the ground, waiting for him to sniffle them up.

Not to mention the fact that he could (and did, to our embarrassment) snipe treats meant for other dogs right from those dogs’ owners fingers.

Right out from that dog’s patiently waiting mouth.

As  one lady from a dog training booth said (and not in a particularly good way);

“Oh, he’s getting a Bad Habit

**lightning crackles** (not really, it lightly sprinkled for like 5 minutes near the end of our trip)

But still, he definitely made it into a Bad Habit that he (thankfully) hasn’t shown any indication of continuing (i.e. grabbing food from OUR fingers).

So yes, He LOOOVED the treats.

Aside from treat-type things, we also went around looking for things that would be good to have while camping, as well as in general on dog walks (the long kind).

One of the things that Lexy has been trying to find for a while would be a dog back pack.

There were two booths that we found that had these, and they were pretty hard to get at.

Here are the two that we found, the second one is what we bought.

1st one#2

The first one was about $57, and the second one was a little more than $40 if I remember correctly.

The one on the left had the multiple straps on the top, which impressed us along with the fact that it didn’t have a solid back part. It would mean that it would be a more comfortable fit (hopefully) since you could adjust it around the chest/ribs, the middle, and the belly.

The idea of getting a bag is to give your dog a ‘job’, thus giving it something that it feels that it needs to do, as well as working it out slowy. You work up the weight in the pack, and eventually you can load water bottles and traeats into it, and then an hour long walk will give the exercise of about twice as long.

Yay for that, eh? Especially if you have a dog  that needs a LOT of exercise.

Really, we just got to check out a couple of different things, and see some cute dogs, so here’s the pictures 😀

Inne so CUTE!He even has his own Biker accessory 😀

 

 

"ORGANS! GETCH'YER ORGANS HERE!" called one booth. Gwynn perked his ears in interest...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

He was very interested in this...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
If he could, he would have smuggled this one away in a nostril or something…

More Woofstock pictures will likely be put up in the near future, or else after I get back from Grundy Park, sometime after August 28th.

 
Hope you all enjoyed!
 
Ciao for now

Woofstock 2011 Toronto Part 1

Woofstock 2011

Hi guys, my sisters and I did a totally doggy darkish thing this last weekend!

YEAH! We went to the equivalent of a dog convention!

Yes I went to Woofstock... TORONTO!

Pretty much all of the booths were for dogs. There were lots of dogs underfoot, and I was taking pictured of it like a fiend!

We got Gwynn a bunch of things, many of which were on a slight discount (does no tax added count? Yes, when it adds 3 dollars), and we gushed and acted like mild Bieber fans at his concert at some of the dogs (HOMIGOD I SAW LIKE 6 GREAT DANES!) [P.S. Microsoft tells me by way of squiggly red line that Bieber is WRONG. Thank you Microsoft for confirming that for me :D]. There were a lot of contests that we could win as well, and that was exciting too…

Omigod, 4kg of chicken patties/week??? For a YEAR? *faints*

One of the things that we saw lots of were “Save ___!!” booths, the ones that tell people about a certain breed, and that they have shelters that are specifically for the protection and adoption of that breed. There were a few booths that were for shelters that take in animals in general, and I say All the Power to You for it.

One of the things that I notice about Specialized Shelters vs General Shelters is that it attracts different kinds of people. Some reading this are shaking their heads, either in ‘no duh’ or in ‘as if’ mentality, and some others don’t  bother with outwardly showing their thoughts on what they’re reading, and still more are reading this going ‘really? Now move on already…’

Moving on.

The difference is that people who already have an idea of what kind of dog that they’d like, and possibly already have that kind of dog will gravitate towards the specialized booths.  This includes the people who (like me) are allergic to fur, and have already done research for what kind of dog has hair, or are known to be hypoallergenic.

Also for big dogs, but they get put down quicker than small dogs while in shelters.

People who gravitate towards the general shelter booths are those who (also like me) like the idea of getting a mutt (I say this with affection, I have nothing against Mutts except for their tendency to make me allergic), and helping give a dog who perhaps has had a bad time of it up until then a good home, and are willing to be surprised at which kind of temper their new puppy/dog/demon will have.

There is no real contrast with either, except for the difference in mentality.

One mentality is that they’ve researched the breed and/or have a soft spot for the breed and/or need a breed that fits into your allergy restrictions.

The other is that you want to help out a dog and/or are looking for a nice surprise that may or may not be exempt from some breeding issues (inbreeding stupidness, hip dysplasia, etc…) and/or would like a dog in general, and would like to have some variety.

I would get myself a cat.... if I wasn't allergic. Did you know they have mutant hypoallergenic cats now?

There are also people who like cats, and they generally go to the general shelters… (don’t quite understand why they don’t go the specialty dog shelters… hmm…)

I have no issue with either of them, and understand a lot of the mentality that starts both, and would like to help out any way that I can.

 More Dog breed info at http://www.dogbreedinfo.com/ 

Save Toto!

** First link is where I get my info on them. **

Westies are very intelligent and definitely not “laid back”. They are happy, playful and affectionate but they are also tough, hardy, independent and tenacious.They are also possessed of no small amount of self-esteem.

 They can be assertive and demanding.This makes them a wonderful companion for those who appreciate and are charmed by the terrier temperament but a disaster for the person who wants a gentle-natured little dog bred primarily for cuddling.

If you are not prepared to provide structure, leadership and training for your Westies, this is not the breed for you.

My sister has a lot of experience with Westies, and this is her favourite Breed. Emma/Peanut, has had to walk two very different Westies, one who is a very energetic (and wired) dog, and one who is more laid back.

General Shelter, RESCUE DOGS!

This dog (to the right) was awesome, and I love the breed (whatever it is

This dog was in a kennel next to the Westoies in Need booth...

(possibly some kind of greyhound or whippet)). It’s probably fur, but I love its face! >>

Yay for Rescue Dogs! You can get such a variety in what dog you get!
 <<
Coat type/colour, personality, breed (s), you can even get lucky some times and get a hypoallergenic dog, regardless of the breed (It’s true).
 
Dogs from Shelters are great companions, and are always uniquely special.
 
 
With a nickname like “American Gentleman,” you can expect your Boston Terrier to be good-natured, intelligent, and polite with a

Save the Tiny Alien dogs! They're too cute!

sense of humor. But like many American gentlemen, they embody a little bit of spunk and spirit that makes them unique.This poster promotes my idea that, like superman, Boston Terriers are aliens come down to earth

Breeders and fanciers describe Boston Terriers as gentle, alert, and well-mannered. The dogs can be rambunctious, harkening back to their terrier ancestors. But that same energy can be redirected into rousing games of fetch, flyball, or agility.

This poster promotes my idea that, like superman, Boston Terriers are aliens come down to earth

Not known to be barkers, Boston Terriers don’t make the best guard dogs — especially because they’re too friendly to strangers! They adore children and senior citizens, making a properly socialized Boston an ideal pet for a young family or an empty-nester. Me- I like them because if there were doggie aliens, this would probably be what they would look like, possibly in rainbow colours 😀 See above picture to see that the shelter people agree!

Golden Retrievers are probably one of the top five breeds that combine an eagerness to please, playfulness, gentleness and devotion.  There is a downside to this however – because they crave so much attention and wanting to be around their owners – these traits can be annoying to some.

As opposed to the bronze or silver rescue 😀

Rankings for:

— Stress when left alone: Average; left alone too much develops into behavioral issues

— Used for personal protection: Medium to high; more of an alert dog than protection

— Used as a guard dog: Poor and extremely low in this role            

 — Barking: Usually alerting more than anything else
— Level of aggressiveness: Very low (hey, this is where Air Bud came from :D)
— Child friendly: Very high – too active & rowdy for infants or toddlers though; excessive licking and/or ‘mouthing’ can be an issue if not addressed
— Socializing with other animals: Usually very well, love to play and will often roll over first unless you have a poorly bred Golden

Don't worry, despite what this picture kind of looks like, Beagles aren't from the underworld

Beagles are energetic, active, alert and even tempered. They are very social dogs and like the company of people and other dogs. They do not like to be left alone for long periods and if so, will get into mischief. Their soulful and pleading eyes will convince you to give them treats and table food which, if you give in to them, will eventually lead to obesity, something that should be monitored carefully because spinal problems are common in overweight beagles.

PLEASE NOTE that the one beagle I know (who Lexy may have mentioned, or may mention in the future) got bit by another aggressive dog as a puppy, and as a result is not a dog friendly dog. If you do hear more stories from Lexy or I in the future about him, do not hold up his personality against Beagles in general. He is a very people-friendly dog, but has issues with most other dogs. This is not normal beagle behaviour, and any dog bitten at a young age has the possibility of becoming dog weary/aggressive.ALL dogs have this possibility, at any stage in life. I have regularly had to pull Gwynn away from tiny dogs because their owners say that poor Mupsy’s uncomfortable with larger dogs because one pushed him down once. Please please PLEASE ask, when you are going for a walk with your dog and see another dog walker, if their dog is friendly or not BEFOREyour own dog is within interacting distance.

Bulldogs are what you make them. And their faces are just so SQUISHY!

 Not talking about actual Bullies, talking about Bulldogs!

Many people do not consider Bulldogs for pets mostly because of its stocky stature and seemingly mean appearance. However, this breed is actually known to make good family pets.

It is actually quite gentle and not too hyperactive. In fact, it is known to be quite the lazy dog which is the reason why it is perfect for small homes or apartments. Even families with small children will do well with Bulldogs. Some are very playful when they are puppies and tend to be a little bit restless. However, it often becomes calm and composed as it grows to become a full adult.

You can get Cats here 😀

Organization for the Rescue of Animals!

 
Yet another General Adoption and Rescue Dog shelter.
 
This seems like it would be a lot more of these around, but there were only three, and I could only get pictures (to help my memory) for two.
 
If you are not planning on adopting a dog, then try donating to any of these places, or any shelter near you.
 
There are all kind of specialized dog shelters, and even a few specialized cat shelters.
 
One place which I thought was a good investment was one that specialized in dark animals. In general, when you go looking for dogs, most families and a good percentage of non-families will avoid darker looking animals, cats perhaps because of that stupid superstition, and dogs perhaps because it makes them look dangerous.
 
On the side, The superstition about black cats and crossing paths was made up by Catholics in an attempt to attract others from their religions. By taking black cats and making them unlucky, they are directly opposing Egyptian mythology, as one of their favourite goddesses has the head of a black cat, and black cats are the guardians to the underworld.
The only explanation for the black/dark coloured dogs (that I can think of) would be that in most movies with guard dogs, the dogs are really dark, and also, when you think of something scary, you think of something dark.
 
The sites in the pictures are as follows:
Otherwise google the names of the shelters or for an organization near you to find a shelter to contact for adoption or for donations.
 
Thank you for reading this first part of Woofstock, the second part will be put up within the next couple of days.
