    Well, I made a deal with the kid ...get straight A's all year in the tough new school and you get a puppy of your choice... Kid came through. Bribery is an effective parenting technique. Puppy Love

    very nice, and she looks happy with the deal.

    When I was like 10, to get a Sega, I had to get straight As, my purple belt in Karate, and have the Bach A minor concerto learned and memorized, all before April (deal was made in September). Well, I don't think I ever used it by the time I was 12. Parents 1 me 0.

    That's a pretty "disagreeable" post

    Agreeable = the recently banned "arrogant", but since he's ranking on his good buddy PHV I'll let him stay a while.

    sounds like a good investment on your parents side. I have been using bribary to toilet train my son, but I hadn't thought about when it will end, or not. [​IMG]

    That dog is not very trad.

    Actually, it is very cute and I'm very picky about dogs.

    What's a trad dog anyway? I believe Horace can weigh in on the subject.

    Trad dog..... frankly, while I suppose I'm fairly trad it is not a 'planned' thing, it just kinda happens in summertime.

    As to the pooch... she's a Cavalier king Charles ... which is way too much name for a toy version of a Cocker Spaniel really.

    Thus far an excellent pooch. Unintentionally troublesome when wide awake but sleeping at my feet the rest of the time.
