Chewbacca Eats Ewoks

 Here’s a short quiz. 

When is the best time to clean and organize a garage and install a doggie door? 

A.  When it's warm outside and the sun is shining brightly.
B.  When you've recently had three inches of snow, the temperature is 21 and the wind chill is seven.

You’re sure?  A is your final answer?  Wrong!  The correct answer is B.   


Where’s the challenge in picking up nails, screws and tiny bits of wood if you can actually feel your fingers?  Why would you want to risk damage to your flip flop exposed toes when you can protect them with heavy wool socks and clown-sized insulated boots?  Besides, leaning over a door held up by an cabinet part on one end and a wooden table on the other, as I pressed down on the doggie door with frozen hands so Dean could mark exactly where the screw holes needed to be drilled, all the while not allowing any snot to plop onto the surface, well, that was a triumph which could never have been achieved if it was warm outside.

Okay, since you’re feeling so bad you chose the wrong answer above, here’s another chance.  This one should be a no-brainer for you. 

What’s the most common use for a chain-link dog kennel?

A.  To keep a dog inside.
B.  To keep a dog outside.

I’m shaking my head in disbelief.  You really chose A?  Again?  In a quiz from MY blog?  I really didn't think you'd fall for that photo.  Seriously.  You need to think these things through before you so rashly mark you answer.   

Holy cow!  I might be able to park in here!!

The answer is B.  Keep a dog outside.  Or, more specifically, keep a 60 pound puppy outside.  A puppy whose favorite pastime is chewing and whose favorite chew toy is wood, cardboard, stuffed animals, plastic milk jugs, plastic flower pots, paper, cardboard, kitty toys, sticks, grass weed barrier cloth pulled out from under gravel pathways, everything.  

In training.

 Alright.  Here’s your final chance to redeem yourself.

Who is the one being trained in the following photo?

A.  Angus
B.  Dean

Good job.  I knew you’d finally get one right.

That looks like lots of fun! Maybe I can get Dad to teach me some puppy lessons for Baxter.
