You know you have a big dog when...

The sound of running water makes you jump up and yell, "OUTSIDE!"

You tell your dog to sit, and he backs up until he finds a chair.

It takes 3 people to get your dog on the scale at the vets.

You walk your dog and everyone knows him by name, but you have no idea who these people are.

You can carry on a conversation with a dog's muzzle firmly in your crotch.

You own a dog capable of pulling someone from a port-a-potty.

You carry a tape measure with you when shopping for a new vehicle.

You keep at least one color-coded "drool towel" in every room of your house.

After banishing your husband, the snoring in your bedroom still keeps you awake.

You are hiking with a friend who later suggests that you ought to have
an environmental impact statement done on your dog.

Visitors enter the house holding their privates protectively.

You toss your dog a ball and cringe when he almost hits his head on the top of the doorway.

You take your dog for a ride and he rests his head on your arm,
causing you to make random right turns.

You have given up on water dishes and you just use the bathtub.

Your two dogs decide to play in the house, and they end up pulling the ceiling fan down, for the second time.

You have to move over when brushing your teeth because your dog wants a drink.

You show a picture of your dogs and kids together, and the first
person you point out is your dog.

While stopped at a stop light, everyone stares as your car rocks back
and forth because the dog is panting out the window.

You go to vacuum your car and most of the fur is up there on the ceiling.

You've learned to force a smile when asked "do you have a saddle for that thing?"

The monthly dog budget exceeds your home mortgage payment.

Your veterinarian has been able to put in a swimming pool, build a
large home, buy jet skis and a vacation home in Florida.

You have had to train your dog not to lick dishes, and the dishes are in the sink.

The donuts you put on top of the refrigerator are gone when you get
home and your dog has powdered sugar on his nose.

Your dog can see what you're cooking and he tries to assist you in the preparation.

You're holding him straddled between your legs when the doorbell rings
and you find yourself quickly transported straight to the front door.

The pizza delivery people tell you to meet them at the end of the sidewalk.

Your dog stands in your lap and reaches over you to stick his head in
the drive-through window at McDonalds and nearly gives the cashier a
heart attack when she turns around to give you your change.

You purchase a large screen TV and you still can't see the program
when he stands in front of the television.

After surgery, your bored pup decides to get up and cruise around the
vet's office, pulling the rolling IV stand behind him.

The meter man has to take Valium before coming to read your meter.

You explain to friends why the toilet bowl is empty...and the seat is soaking wet.

No one needs explanation to the strange streaks across the ceiling and walls.

You feed the cat 8' in the air.

The litter pans are on top of the bookshelves.

You come home and your furniture has been re-arranged and you don't call the cops.

The holes in the walls and doors also don't need any explanation.

Screens? What are those?

Couches become chew toys.

You buy your dog their own couch/loveseat. ...So you will have somewhere to sit.

When your poor significant other gets dirty looks when you go to the
store after your latest dog related black eye.

When you explain to your dry cleaner that they're slobber stains.

When the seats to your SUV/Van are in the garage more than in the car.

When you have given up on the hope of ever having grass in your yard again.

When you have at least two pairs of pants that have been damaged in
some way after your dog has decided to go off the beaten path.

When you start buying air freshener in bulk.

Why Nike+? My top 4 Reasons

I use Nike+. I'm a HUGE advocate of Nike+.

Here my top 4 Reasons why I'm a HUGE advocate:
1. Motivation - The little Nike+ device is a huge motivation. Just having my SportBand on makes me want to be better!

2. Community - Just like "It's Where I Run" and many other sites intend to build a following or a community, Nike+ does so as well. And they are very good at it! Once you are a Nike+ user you can join Challenges (like the ones I've created) and "Trash Talk." It builds your character (as long as your "trash talk" is all in good, competitive fun) and builds the online Nike+ community. You belong.

3. Goals - Nike+ gives you a way and a reason to make and achieve goals. You can decide whatever goal you want to achieve and then create a Challenge to work towards/achieve that goal. You'll never want to give up!

4. Passion - Nike has Passion. We can see it through Nike+. I believe that if you have Passion anything is possible. When I find something like Nike+ that gives me more passion, I adopt it! It's as simple as that!

Why females should avoid a girls night out after they are married....

If this does not make you laugh out loud, you have lost your sense of

The other night I was invited out for a night with the 'girls.'
I told my husband that I would be home by midnight, 'I promise!'
Well, the hours passed and the margaritas went down way too easily.
Around 3 a.m., a bit loaded, I headed for home.

Just as I got in the door, the cuckoo clock in the hallway started up
and cuckooed 3 times.

Quickly, realizing my husband would probably wake up, I cuckooed another
9 times.

I was really proud of myself for coming up with such a quick-witted
solution, in order to escape a possible conflict with him.

(Even when totally smashed... 3 cuckoos plus 9 cuckoos totals = 12
The next morning my husband asked me what time I got in, I told him
'MIDNIGHT'... he didn't seem pissed off in the least.

Whew, I got away with that one! Then he said 'We need a new cuckoo

When I asked him why, he said, 'Well, last night our clock cuckooed
three times, then said 'oh shit.' Cuckooed 4 more times, cleared its
throat, cuckooed another three times, giggled, cuckooed twice more, and
tripped over the coffee table and farted.
