For me though, Winnie the Pooh, or Nalle Puh here in Sweden, should be read by the great actor Allan Edwall. That's the real stuff.

(I'll be sure to see this new film though.)
For my kids, Pooh always came after the meal.

Really, I'm trying to figure out how long it would take until it would be alright if it didn't have that break during the day. I do have a roommate who usually gets home like an hour before I do, but I don't want to put the responsibility on him of having to clear HIS schedule to go home and do it.

It's tough to figure out. Some dog owners have told me at a certain age it could manage, others have told me not at all. Depending on the breed, I could just take it to work with me, but I don't want a 'small' dog so at a point it's going to outgrow that ability.

It's tricky.
Doesn't sound practical for you right now. A puppy even more so. Do you think getting an adult would make it easier? Maybe a rescue?

Very possible. Some of my friends have suggested more of a juvenile - something at least a year old. So it's still kinda young and puppy-ish, but not in a heavy developmental stage and requiring a lot of constant attention.

My last dog was a pit. She was a rescue who was abandoned when she got pregnant. The sweetest dog my family has ever had. Good luck whichever way you decide.

Wow, 20 years later I still know all the words to that theme song.

For any of you people that were on the Ben Franklin Parkway for the 4th of July concert/fireworks, do you have any idea of what the hell happened?

I was standing somewhat close to the fountain watching the fireworks when I turn my head and look back to see a stampede of people running and screaming towards me. It was some crazy stuff.

I know this probably is a little late, but I've been trying to find out what FULLY happened and figured this would be a better place than any to find out, and see how bad it was anywhere else in the crowd.

Google has shut down its Realtime Search offering after its agreement to include Twitter results expired.

The search giant appears to be planning to incorporate results from its own newly launched Google+ service instead of Twitter posts.

Google started including information like status updates and other public content from sites including Twitter and Facebook in search results in 2009. Initially, the results were incorporated into the main search site where users could navigate through the filtering options on the left-hand column to see the Realtime results.

But last year Google launched a standalone page, google.com/realtime, where users could specifically search for such results.

That URL is now displaying a 404 error page that says: The requested URL /realtime was not found on this server. That's all we know.

Kenopka just signed in Ottawa for 700k.
We payed Talbot all that money over that term and we could have had a better player for half the price.
Good job homer.

Talbot is a much better player than Konopka.

The Baltimore-Washington Parkway is closed because of some dude wielding a shotgun and a sledgehammer. This is the most "Mad Max" thing I've heard of since Killdozer.

Apparently he charged across the parkway, beat up a car with a sledgehammer, and then shot the speed camera attached to the car. That's Viking **** right there.

I'm guessing it's just an elaborate Casey Anthony protest.

Don't leave them more than 24 hours. I'm a pet sitter and have had to take a number of client cats to the vet because they hide illness really well. I don't even take jobs where I don't see the cat at least once a day. I'm sure you aren't the only one that does this but it if you leave them too long it's considered animal abandonment.

I'm researching puppies (and how to raise them) because I've always wanted one, but I work 10 hour days M-F...I've had some suggested that it'd be fine, others that any dog under 1 year old would be bad news...any ideas, folks?
If you're gone 10 hours you need at least 2 visits a day for a young pup, more likely 3. I'm starting with a 9 week old tomorrow and her owners are letting her out at 8:30 and I'm going at 12 and 3:30 and they'll be home by 6:30 or 7.

I've had other puppies where it was the same length of workday and I went over every 2 hours for the first couple of weeks. I've got adult dogs who can seemingly hold it for 12 hours while others can't go beyond 5. It all depends on the dog so there is no hard and fast rule.

Most of my clients have taken a week off the first week the puppy was home and I started going after.

I think the clear solution here to just have woof raise your dog for a little while.

Sure, if he's on the east side of Toronto! But regardless, it's a huge step and the first year especially is very expensive so it you're going to get a dog, just make sure you realize all that is involved.

Don't believe everything you see with these dog trainers that have TV shows. They don't show you what they don't want to.
