Pupster’s Parenting Tips – Part 1

    Let me know when it sinks in for you. I’m guessing early teens.

    Speaking of flushing (okay, that was a week segue, but it was the closest thing to a topic I could find), does anyone know what happened to Dave at Garfield Ridge? He’s now totally blogocided and wiped everything but his header. He even took down his farewell post.

    I know how to take “bugger off” for an answer, but…you just feel like you ought to check on people, somehow.

    I always flush. Hell, I pre-flush and post flush. I like fresh water in my bowl.

    S.Weasel, check again….HE’S BAA-AACK!

    Pup–didn’t mean you aren’t fully housebroken. I have faith in you. Based on my experience, I meant your kids might consistently leave a clean bowl for you by the time girls start looking interesting to them.

    I know you did skinny, but the water bowl joke worked better (I thought)if I acted a bit obtuse and defensive.

    (It was an act this time.)

    I recommend bricks.

    Hard. Rectangular. Red bricks.

    Perfect for housetraining that troublesome new puppy. And when you want to send your neighbor a message he’s sure to read, wrap it around a Red Brick™ and chuck it through the window.

    You will get his attention and how!

    You should have heard the campy music. It was beeyooteeful.
