THE BISCUIT EATER
released in 1940 The Biscuit Eater was re-released as a remake in 1972
by Walt Disney and is the last “one Boy and his Animal” themed movie
made by Disney. This small unpretentious film is a genuinely moving
experience. We dare you to watch this with dry eyes!
story revolves around a
German Wirehaired Pointer named
Moreover who is given to a gas station clerk, but Lonnie (Johnny
Whitaker) and his best friend Tex regain possession of the dog where a
strong relationship develops with the red-headed Lonnie and the dog.
Considered untrainable by its first owner, Lonnie's veterinarian father,
the two twelve-year old boys take the time to train Moreover to be a
prize-winning bird pointer and enter him in the state championship field
trial. Moreover does well, and an incident makes the boys think that
Lonnie's father will lose his bird training job if his dog, last year's
champion SilverBelle, loses to their dark horse entry. As you might
expect from a Disney movie, all turns out well in the end.
Have you noticed that your dog's
urination burns your lawn? To solve this problem, give your dog 1/2
- 1 cup of tomato juice every day. This can be given either over
their food or just as a drink in their bowl.
The busy little Cocker Spaniel is gentle and affectionate,
full of life, exuberant and friendly and just thrives on human
companionship, wanting nothing more than to please its owners. Well
suited for families and singles alike, these dogs get on well with
children and other animals. They are well known for their easy going
nature and ever wagging tail. An excellent companion because of their
adaptability, whether kept inside or outside the house, as they do not
drop hair. Although not noted for being 'diggers', some may become
accomplished escape artists while individual dogs are known to climb
fences! Requiring regular daily exercise such as a walk or an energetic
game, they are good swimmers and great watch dogs. Great with families
and older people, these dogs are adaptable and robust.
Did You Know?
It is a myth that dogs
are color blind. Dogs
can actually see in
color but not as vividly
as humans. It is similar
to our vision at dusk.
They do have better
low-light vision than
humans because of a
layer behind their
retinas. A German
Shepherd guide dog led
her blind companion the
entire 2100 mile
What can you use to brush dog’s teeth that can be found in your home?
Brushing your dog’s teeth is as simple as using one of your old
toothbrushes and making up a solution of lightly salted warm water,
dipping the toothbrush into that and gently brushing away. Dogs don't
mind the taste of salty water and your dog will be quite happy to open
its mouth for you to brush his teeth. I wouldn't recommend using human
toothpaste as it is too strong for a dog’s delicate mouth. It is never
too late to start brushing your dog’s teeth; every second day would be
great, but once a week is better than not at all. It will save your dog
from having dental problems when it gets older and you the expense of
having extra vet bills.

Charles & the Genie
While Prince Charles
was reversing his Land Rover out of the garage he ran over the Queen’s
favourite Corgi. Upon getting out of the car he saw the dog was
squashed to a pulp. Suddenly a Genie popped up and said to the Prince
“I can give you one wish. What would you like? The Prince replied “This
is mummy’s favourite dog, you just must bring it back to life!” The
Genie said “Lets have a look at the dog.” “Oh no, nothing can be done to
help this dog, there was too much damage done when you ran over it.”
“But you just must be able to do something, it is mummy’s favourite.”
Said the prince. “I am sorry” said the Genie, “it’s just impossible to
bring it back to life.” “Ok then” said the Prince, “But I do still have
a wish?” "Yes” said the Genie. “Well then” said the Prince, “I am
marrying Camilla in April, could you make her as beautiful as Diana
Genie thought for a while then said “Let’s have another look at the
