Props to The Yellow Yell for making the best image of 2007

Welp, looks like I did another BarkWire update a lot sooner than I thought I would. The inspiration struck me to finally start moving on that whole Vermin-Rusty conflict, which is of course a prime concern for everyone. I look forward to another week of "WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO WRITE ABOUT PANZER" e-mails. I will write about Panzer towards the end of this series, and yes, Panzer will be covered!!

Also apologies for getting lazy with the Daily Dirts. Hope to make it up to you!!

Dogspotting

A few months ago a young man of Internet age named johnasavoia posted a thread in FYAD announcing a new sport called dogspotting.

dogspotting is a game you can play any time in any place, the rules are simple and it can be played alone or with others

you just gotta spot dogs, anywhere you see dogs, thats where the game is

single dog = 1pt

double dog = 4pt (must be one person walking two dogs, two people together each walking one dog is two single dogs)

triple dog = 6pt and so forth

particularly funny looking or ugly dogs are worth an additional point, very large dogs are also worth an additional point, though there is no bonus or lesser value placed on small dogs. Dogs in clothes falls under the heading of funny/ugly dogs.

You can tally your points on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis, I prefer to do daily.

Today I saw 3 single dogs, none particularly funny or large, and one double dog, so I had 7pts today.

I made this game up and its fun to play so if you wanna play along with me lets keep score together!

Naturally, some amendments and clarifications were made, which I will do my best to summarize here:

  • Small dogs are worth +1. Small dogs with extremely fat owners are worth +2.
  • +1 if you trick a dog into yawning by yawning yourself.
  • +1 if they have a stick in their mouth.
  • +1 for action dogs (swimming, chasing ducks, catching an object, fetching an object). Note: you cannot initiate the action.
  • +1 for a dog in a car
  • +2 for a dog in a car with its head out the window
  • +10 for a dog in a helicopter
  • Rescue dogs are worth +10 points. A rescue dog that rescues you from some rubble is worth +20 points. Note: you may not get yourself trapped in rubble intentionally for points.
  • Drug dogs are worth +5
  • Bomb sniffing dogs are worth +10

I wish you all the best of luck and high scores! This should make those boring summer days pass much faster!
