Some Things Never Change

Many of my blogger friends talk of their kids and I realize that I’m older than I think because most of the kids I read about are in elementary school. Not mine; I have the dreaded beast of terror, destruction, and destitution that we call teenagers. Funny, though, no matter how well we try to train them day after day, week after week, they revert to their toddlerism days and do things that just plain crack me up.

Spawnette was just recently working on a project required of her speech class. They were to “invent” a product, design advertising and marketing materials, and present it to the class. She came up with some kind of walking, talking, breathing, and don’t forget to do the dishes and laundry telephone. The phone would have been a tad large and wouldn’t have fit in my pocket but that’s the price you pay for maid service.

A package of poster board and a box of markers later I present to you her first attempt at marketing.

It says: I ♥ U

Some things never change, do they? At least it was the dog and not the furniture or living room walls.

Haha! Excellent use of spare space I say. What's the point in having all that blank white area on his head if you can't use it to promote something?

i remember having to build a machine in my physical science class in 9th grade. it was called the "wedginlever." it was basically a knife balanced on a piece of wood to cut a piece of cheese stuck on a nail above. not only was it sanitary, it only took about twenty wacks to make a dent in the cheese.

Rather inventive, I thought.

Haha live dog marketing. It's huge over in Europe. Only a matter of time before it makes its way over here. "Spawnette" is ahead of the curve.

Very cool marketing idea. She's brilliant and will go far.

I too am the proud owner of two demons from the underworld.

Well, who could resist such a warm and friendly and cuddly face. Place a loveable dog such as that one in an ad, and I'll buy almost anything.! LOL. At least you don't have to tell to to stop biting the dog. Yes, I've had to tell my boys to stop doing that. Now, I have to remind them that Apollo is a dog, not a pony. But they try to ride on his back anyway. And the silly dog just stands there and let's them. Have I mention, I love dogs.

That is truly funny. And I might add that your dog is infinitely kissable!!!!!
