Some years ago,...

Don't set your dog up for scolding. Anything with...

Talking on phone

hands free is a myth and is just as dangerous as drunk driving. No one said you can't or shouldn't talk to someone who is physically in the car with you.

PD dance

Check your state education website

Your state should have 5th grade standards for all core subjects. The days of just following the text book are long gone.

Homework Planner/Backpack Coach

21st Century Retirement Buzzwords

You haven't ruined your puppy. My guess was the pup was over aroused and/or maybe over-tired and had a puppy meltdown.

When in an aroused state, such as chewing on slippers, dogs have a natural...
