TRENDING TUESDAY 5 SHARED DOGGONE OWNER PERSONALITIES

 

If you’ve owned a dog, then you are acutely aware of the personality traits that bind them to your family. Watching your Dachshund, Duke, gobble down his dog chow without taking a breath reminds you of your Uncle Buck at Thanksgiving. You marvel at the regal twin-like pose of Daffodil, the silky gray Weimaraner, and your Aunt Daphne as they drive the Mercedes golf cart around her country club neighborhood. What canine consortium causes your animal to emulate human personality traits? Or are we a pre-selective species destined to end up with man’s best friend reflective of our own psychological makeup? These questions are the mysterious minutiae pondered by Plato and Socrates. But scoff not. There are in-depth studies that suggest this rubbish has some validity. So the big question of the day is: Which of these 5 dog personalities do you and Fifi share? Continue reading “TRENDING TUESDAY 5 SHARED DOGGONE OWNER PERSONALITIES”

Symbolism was a common method used to depict love, loyalty, morality, and desire. Below, I’ve divulged the soap opera screenplay of several renowned pieces of art.

TRENDING TUESDAY 10 RIO OLYMPIC REFUGEE ATHLETES WITHOUT A COUNTRY

 

I proudly waive the flag of my beloved country. 10 Rio Refugee Athletes enter this year’s Olympic games dreaming of Gold, Silver, and Bronze, but have no country with whom to celebrate the potential fruits of their labor. Every Olympic games, there are athletes who compete without a country for various reasons. This year, 43 refugees were whittled down to 10 athletes, and for the First Time have joined forces to compete as a unified team. They are the orphans of the Olympiad games, but they belong to us all.

TRENDING TUESDAY ZIKA MANIA

 

Zika Mania is not to be confused with the boys from Liverpool – Beatle Mania. Not since the dreaded bedbug found in 4-hour nap establishments and certain college dorm rooms has there been so much hype about an insect. Mosquitos creep me out on a psychological level and are carriers of the “Gross” factor above and beyond what can be described in this blog. Brushing that aside, Continue reading “TRENDING TUESDAY ZIKA MANIA”
