   WAN2  My golden puppy would not go up or down stairs. I put a leash on him, pulled him gently close to me, and charged ahead steadily giving him no choice but to follow. Bingo. Stairs never a problem ever since. I.e., I KNEW he could do it. But HE needed convincing.

   WAN2  It appears MALE dogs would learn going down steps faster than FEMALE dogs... Ouch.

   Balogreene  We used to own greyhounds. A couple in our group had a 100 lb. boy who couldn't do stairs, so they carried him up and down every day. Then, one day, they came home and he ran downstairs to greet them. He wasn't carried again.

   StormCnter  We had a female Chow mix who was afraid of nothing in the world but open staircases, the kind with no risers. We carried her up and down a lot of motel stairs when we were traveling.

   MeiDei  Your comment made me laugh Storm, did you happen to see the video on the Dogs, Cats Wall of dogs going up & down stairs? There's a fellow with a full grown St. Bernard that has/had your Chow experience.

   Alice  Funny! my first choice was Rick Perry. Oh well. Then it was Scott Walker. Oh well. (I lean toward governors. ) Dear Hubby likes Trump. I like Cruz, but worry about his and Trump's un-favorable ratings against Herself or even The Bern. There is and has not been one Republican I would not vote for in November. It started out as and remains a great slate. May God save us from the Democrats.

   FlatCityGirl  Historians are going to be writing tomes about this campaign season for the next hundred years. One Democrat candidate is a Communist, one Democrat candidate is a Communist and on the verge of being indicted, and one Republican candidate has split the Republican party/GOPe like Lizzy Borden swinging the axe.

Whatever happens, the GOPe will still not have learned their lesson. You can take that to the bank, so when it's over, the TEA party people and other good Conservatives are going to have to get together, come together, and write a platform and get going on a third party. There is no other answer.

The GOPe is entrenched and hidebound and arrogant. That is not going to change.

   MeiDei  A Daily Beast article on The Forum annoyed me. Having helped in the administration of two 501 C(3 ) charitable trusts - one personal & one business related (neither one received outside donations or did fund raising ); I found the writer (Resnick? ) to be selective, misinformed or maybe even willfully disingenuous. First of all I'm neither for or against Trump - my vote is still under consideration. Secondly, people should inform themselves of the regulations guiding charitable trusts, minimum distribution requirements, gifts/grants allowed and familiarize themselves with economics -past & current, when evaluating fundraising. Money received is invested in a portfolio governed by rules, the income of which is what does or does not get spent on programs & admin expenses. Going into the principal results in less investment (dividend/interest ) income to spend & therefore will necessitate fund raising activity. The author of the article said Fisher House provides homes for military - no I doesn't. It provides temporary housing for families who live away from the service member confined to a military hospital who would be financially unable to visit otherwise. Here's Charity Navigator's FH report (4 stars out of 4 ) http://www.charitynavigator.org/index.cfm?bay=search.summary
&orgid=7585#.VqueyFJuldg.
I noticed in the comments after disparaging remarks about DAV and WWP - really? Maybe they had a personal bad experience. Check for yourself http://www.charitynavigator.org/index.cfm?bay=search.summary
&orgid=7589#.Vquc41Juldg
Disabled American Veterans and http://www.charitynavigator.org/index.cfm?bay=search.summary&orgid=12842#.Vquay1Juldg Wounded Warrior Project. On a personal note, I wrote the DAV years ago for information for helping a paralyzed person who was not a vet - within a week they sent me a package that was helpful. In closing here is Charity Navigator's link for a list organizations alphabetically - trust but verify, yes? http://www.charitynavigator.org/index.cfm?bay=search.alpha<r=D

   Mikkins2  I have recommended "Extortion" by Peter Schweizer on the previously on posts in the main room, but I really do think it deserves another more permanent post. Everyone should read this, or like in my case, listen to the audio book. I have no connection to Mr. Schweizer, nor will I get any benefit other then not being the only head that exploded from it. If you take blood pressure meds, I sugget you double up for this one.

   Mikkins2  Thanks for that. I really recommend the audio book. The reader does a great job. Mr. Schweizer describes how politicians of both parties shake down people, businesses, and industries for money. Its one of those books you have to read/listen too in chunks, at least for me, due to the anger it creates.

   Balogreene  We finally got out Wednesday. We hired a guy with a pickup and a plow, and his 14-yr old son The boy pushed the snow into the street, the father plowed it out tp the already established piles. When the young man got to our sidewalk, he just shoveled and threw the snow. When he was done with that, he went back and cleaned up what he'd thrown on the previously shoveled walk. Worth every penny we paid.
