Coco is a big supporter of our military

Coco Supports Military

Since my son Carlos signed up for the Marine’s Delayed Entry Program we have become more supportive of our military.  My father was in the Coast Guard but never spoke much about it. His father was in the Army and I’ve seen a few pictures but never really heard to much about it, except for this story. My Grandmother had a large caliber shell with the Statue of Liberty scratched/engraved on it that was done by some POW’s my Grandfather was guarding.

Coco likes to get up on things. Perhaps she likes “up” because she knows she will get a reward for it. You can see a good example here:

Add Content To Your Site To Help It In Google

coco therapy dogOne of the most important things you can do for your dog training website to rank better in google is to add a lot of quality, unique content that is related to your industry to it. This is often called blogging. You need to add the material to the website you want to rank well. If you have a blog only site that isn’t your main site, putting the material on that won’t help much to improve your main business website.

There are many technical SEO improvement that can be made to a site to help it in Google, but in most cases having good unique content is more important and more beneficial. It is also something the owner of the business can do with little technical ability. Once you have a website full of good quality content to show Google that you are an authority in your field, there are technical SEO practices that can take you to the next level. But first, get the content on your site. A well optimized 5 page website with all the possible technical SEO done will in most cases not rank as well as a 50 page site with lots of good valuable information and no SEO or Optimization.

The goal of the content should be:

  • Include dog behavior words and phrases that people search for like; my dog jumps, how to spot barking, my dog doesn’t listen, how to get your dog to come to you. Definitely include one of the following phrases that is most applicable. Dog Training, Puppy Training, in addition to other niches that might be offered like Therapy Dog Training, Retriever Training, Protection or Schutzhund Training etc.
  • Locations that you serve, not just where you are located but surrounding suburbs, towns, neighborhoods.
  • Mention Breeds. According to Google, the number one searched for dog training related keyword is “dog training”, makes sense right? Puppy training is often second, next is a variations of obedience dog training or dog obedience training, then breeds are mentioned. German Shepherd Training is one of the first breeds to be mentioned in addition to Pit Bull Training all the way down to Beagle Training.

One of the easiest way to get content on your site is to have someone else write it like a testimonial. The next easiest would be something like FAQ’s where you can actually pick and answer your own questions, or you can answer questions you’ve been asked in the past. The hardest way to add content for most people is to sit down and write an article about your industry, like dog training.

The problem with most testimonial is that they can be very short and for the sake of ranking, more content will in most cases be better.

I usually recommend using the idea of Testimonials but calling the section on your website Success Stories, that way you can either add to the existing short testimonial or you can completely write your own version of an experience with a dog.

The other reason to use the term success stories is because it looks better on your site then the word testimonials. This is more important to conversion .

Here is an example of a Success Story I would use for a Therapy Dog Trainer:

Mr Smith from Margate, FL recently brought his 2 year old German Shepherd to us because he wanted it to be trained to be a Therapy Dog for the Margate, FL Hospital. He said his child was in the hospital recently and a therapy dog visited and his child loved it.

Coco, Mr. Smiths GSD, seemed to be a great candidate for Therapy Dog work. She seemed to love people and have decent obedience abilities. Her only problem was she was nervous around wheelchairs. So we met Coco and Mr. Smith at a local Home Depot and introduced her to shopping carts, flat carts and anything with wheels. They also have large shopping carts to hold children and materials that we used to expose her to new wheeled devices. We slowly got her used to being near carts and chairs with wheels. Here is what Mr. Smith said about his experience with us:

They did amazing things with Coco, now we passed the therapy dog test we look forward to visiting the hospital. I highly recommend them.

Now Mr.Smith can take his new Therapy Dog Coco to Nursing Homes, Hospitals, Schools and other places near Margate, FL.

One European’s Opinion on the War on Terror

The awakening of the rest of the free world and the realization that we cannot do it all by ourselves. Russ

If any of you still feel that this war on terror is a mistake, here is an opinion from an unexpected source. This is not a problem that is going to be easy to solve. It is the struggle to maintain our Western way of life and the very culture that has made it possible. Loose this one, and our grandchildren will be speaking Arabic, those of them that survive the conversion.

Look at what has been happening in Europe the last couple of weeks. For all practical purposes they won Spain without any effort on their part other than a couple of bombs in public places. Now they are burning Paris and hitting on Holland and Belgium.

Better get serious, very, very serious!

This is a MUST read!

It’s fascinating that this should come out of Europe. Matthias Dapfner, Chief Executive of the huge German publisher Axel Springer AG, has written a blistering attack in DIE WELT, Germany’s largest daily paper, against the timid reaction of Europe in the face of the Islamic threat. This is a must read by all Americans. History will certify its correctness.

EUROPE – THY NAME IS COWARDICE (Commentary by Mathias Dapfner CEO, Axel
Springer, AG)

A few days ago Henry Broder wrote in Welt am Sonntag, Europe – your family name is appeasement. It’s a phrase you can’t get out of your head because it’s so terribly true.

Appeasement cost millions of Jews and non-Jews their lives as England and France, allies at the time, negotiated and hesitated too long before they noticed that Hitler had to be fought, not bound to toothless
agreements.

Appeasement legitimized and stabilized Communism in the Soviet Union, then East Germany, then all the rest of Eastern Europe where for decades, inhuman suppressive, murderous governments were glorified as the ideologically correct alternative to all other possibilities.

Appeasement crippled Europe when genocide ran rampant in Kosovo, and even though we had absolute proof of ongoing mass-murder, we Europeans debated and debated and debated, and were still debating when finally the Americans had to come from halfway around the world, into Europe yet
again, and do our work for us.

Rather than protecting democracy in the Middle East, European appeasement, camouflaged behind the fuzzy word equidistance,now countenances suicide bombings in Israel by fundamentalist Palestinians.

Appeasement generates a mentality that allows Europe to ignore nearly 500,000 victims of Saddam’s torture and murder machinery and, motivated by the self-righteousness of the peace-movement, has the gall to issue bad grades to George Bush… Even as it is uncovered that the loudest critics of the American action in Iraq made illicit billions, no, TENS of billions, in the corrupt U.N. Oil-for-Food program.

And now we are faced with a particularly grotesque form of appeasement. How is Germany reacting to the escalating violence by Islamic fundamentalists in Holland and elsewhere? By suggesting that we really
should have a Muslim Holiday in Germany?

I wish I were joking, but I am not. A substantial fraction of our (German) Government, and if the polls are to be believed, the German people, actually believe that creating an Official State Muslim Holiday will somehow spare us from the wrath of the fanatical Islamists.

One cannot help but recall Britain’s Neville Chamberlain waving the laughable treaty signed by Adolph Hitler, and declaring European Peace in our time.

What else has to happen before the European public and its political leadership get it? There is a sort of crusade underway, an especially perfidious crusade consisting of systematic attacks by fanatic Muslims, focused on civilians, directed against our free, open Western societies, and intent upon Western Civilization’s utter destruction.

It is a conflict that will most likely last longer than any of the great military conflicts of the last century – a conflict conducted by an enemy that cannot be tamed by tolerance and accommodation but is actually spurred on by such gestures, which have proven to be, and will always be taken by the Islamists for signs of weakness.

Only two recent American Presidents had the courage needed for anti-appeasement: Reagan and Bush.

His American critics may quibble over the details, but we Europeans know the truth. We saw it first hand: Ronald Reagan ended the Cold War, freeing half of the German people from nearly 50 years of terror and virtual slavery. And Bush, supported only by the Social Democrat Blair, acting on moral conviction, recognized the danger in the Islamic War against democracy. His place in history will have to be evaluated after a number of years have passed.

In the meantime, Europe sits back with charismatic self-confidence in the multicultural corner, instead of defending liberal society’s values and being an attractive center of power on the same playing field as the
true great powers, America and China.

On the contrary – we Europeans present ourselves, in contrast to those arrogant Americans, as the World Champions of tolerance, which even (Germany’s Interior Minister) Otto Schily justifiably criticizes.

Why? Because we’re so moral? I fear it’s more because we’re so materialistic so devoid of a moral compass.

For his policies, Bush risks the fall of the dollar, huge amounts of additional national debt, and a massive and persistent burden on the American economy – because unlike almost all of Europe, Bush realizes
what is at stake – literally everything. While we criticize the capitalistic robber barons of America because they seem too sure of their priorities, we timidly defend our Social Welfare systems. Stay out of it! It could get expensive! We’d rather discuss reducing our 35-hour workweek or our dental coverage, or our 4 weeks of paid vacation… Or listen to TV pastors preach about the need to reach out to terrorists. To understand and forgive. These days, Europe reminds me of an old woman who, with shaking hands, frantically hides her last pieces of jewelry when she notices a robber breaking into a neighbor’s house.

Appeasement?

Europe, thy name is Cowardice.

—God Bless America—

Funny 911 Calls

Funny 911 Calls

  1. A man called 911 because his neighbors were being “mean” and refused to drink with him on his birthday. He called 911 again 30 minutes later with the exact same complaint and was arrested.
  2. A Wisconsin man called 911 to ask for assistance in removing a woman from his bed who was “snoring like a train.”
  3. A man was arrested by police in Memphis, Tenn., after calling 911 when he was overcharged for a beer by a penny at a local store. The clerk had refused to hand over the penny, so he called 911 — three times.
  4. A woman was arrested by police in Billings, Mont. because she called 911 to report that she was too drunk to get out of her vehicle. Her blood-alcohol level was 0.311.
  5. A British man called 999 – UK’s equivalent to 911 – to complain that pieces of cork were floating in his wine, reports ABC News. The man was drinking at a bar and demanded a full refund from the staff. When they refused, he called the police to help settle the issue. The dispatcher did not send an officer to the bar.
  6. A North Carolina man who claimed to have hiked into the forest seeking out paranormal activity ended up calling 911 when he got lost in the woods. Sonny Clay Hyatt told police he got separated from his friends while they were investigating ghosts, but later admitted that he and his friends actually went into the woods to make methamphetamine. The suspects got into an argument when the cook failed, and the other two left separately.
  7. A teenage girl in Oregon called 911, not for an emergency, but a “massive freaking” spider. The girl told the perplexed dispatcher that she was home alone with the spider and didn’t know what to do, according to 911 records obtained by Portland TV station KPTV. An officer did respond to the scene and disposed of it with an old-fashioned rolled up newspaper, police told KPTV.
  8. A Georgia man was arrested and charged with abusing the emergency 911 emergency services after he called to report that one of the seven McDoubles he ordered at McDonald’s was missing. Lorenzo Riggins confronted a McDonald’s employee, who gave him “attitude” so he called the police.
  9. An Indiana man tried to order a cheeseburger by calling 911 nine times. 52-year-old Gregory Jackson Sr. has reportedly had past run-ins with police, and calling 911 nine times in just 90 minutes in an attempt to order a cheeseburger was yet another brush with the law that got him arrested.
  10. All Jarvis Sutton wanted was Kool-Aid, some burgers and a little weed. But in April 2013, he called the wrong folks to get them. According to police, the 34-year-old St. Petersburg, Fla., man called 911 about 80 times requesting the items, the Tampa Bay Times reported. Sutton admitted to making the calls and faced a charge of misusing the 911 system.

Smartphones the most preferred product: Apple and Google

Right now, we have the most amazing technology. Everything we have seems to be enhanced by little inventions to make it better. Our lives are easier, and we have so much. However, if there was one thing, you would say you couldn’t go without, what would it be? Apparently, most people would choose to keep their cell phones.

Coca-Cola beat out by Apple and Google

Smartphones For the last 13 years, Coca-Cola has been the number-one company in the Interband survey of Best Global Brands. According to PC Magazine, now Apple is number 1 and Google is number 2. Our country used to be all about coke, but I guess now we’ve switched to a country of technology and a country that prefers our smartphones. Apple and Google are probably pretty pleased with themselves. It took a lot of work to beat Coca-Cola, and now they are doing significantly better. Apple has beat out Coke, so I’m sure Google is throwing a fit over that. Still, beating out the number-one spot is an accomplishment.

Everyone would have pegged Apple for beating Google, but Apple is actually not that far ahead of Google right now. Google could easily mastermind a new product to jump ahead for next year’s poll. Apple has had surprising increases in the last few years despite the lack of innovation and death of their main innovator, Steve Jobs. I guess everyone still wants an iPhone, even if it’s nothing new.

Top ten spots

Thanks to Interband, we get to see which companies have the most value every year. The top ten spots of 2013 include the following:

  1. Apple
  2. Google
  3. Coca-Cola
  4. IBM
  5. Microsoft
  6. General Electric
  7. McDonald’s
  8. Samsung
  9. Intel
  10. Toyota

As you can see, seven of the top 10 spots belong to technology companies. There is so much technology going into Toyota cars that you might as well count it as a technology company as well. This list shows that our nation’s priorities are changing. We want technology with everything we do and want to make sure we are getting the best. We don’t care about tradition or what our parents used to do. We just want to make sure we have the best.

Turn on electronic advertising

As a business, you need to stay on top of these kinds of things in order to compete. Since all of your customers will have technology and are always going to get the next-best thing, that means you need to start advertising with the next-best thing. Use the Internet and phones to get your company name out there. Remind people you exist and that you have the best product. Get on Facebook and talk to customers there. Use other social media to your advantage. Text your customer’s reminders to come in for a deal, and stay on top of things, so you can beat out your closest competition. Using these technological devices to your advantage will put you far ahead of others. Hardly, any businesses are currently utilizing texts and smartphones to advertise. Getting on top had never been easier.

Expert Police Officer Testimony

Police OfficerIf you ever testify in court, you might wish you could have been as sharp as this policeman.

He was being cross-examined by a defense attorney during a felony trial. The lawyer was trying to undermine the police officer’s credibility …

Q: ‘Officer — did you see my client fleeing the scene?’

A: ‘No sir. But I subsequently observed a person matching the description of the offender, running several blocks away.’

Q: ‘Officer, who provided this description?’

A: ‘The officer who responded to the scene.’

Q: ‘A fellow officer provided the description of this so-called offender. Do you trust your fellow officers?’

A: ‘Yes, sir. With my life.’

Q: ‘With your life? Let me ask you this then officer. Do you have a room where you change your clothes in preparation for your daily duties?’

A: ‘Yes sir, we do!’

Q: ‘And do you have a locker in the room?’

A: ‘Yes, sir, I do.’

Q: ‘And do you have a lock on your locker?’

A: ‘Yes, sir.’

Q: ‘Now, why is it, officer, if you trust your fellow officers with your life, you find it necessary to lock your locker in a room you share with these same officers?’

A: ‘You see, sir, we share the building with the court complex, and sometimes lawyers have been known to walk through that room.’

The courtroom EXPLODED with laughter, and a prompt recess was called.

Make the Best of What You Blog this time

Blog SEOIt always stones me how we are always needing new ways to do everything every time we do it.That is because freshness and uniqueness are always looked for when making something. Having the same type of thing that you already have does not carry an attraction for possibly anyone. There is always that one thing new and fresh and completely different that sets it apart from everything else there is. In writing, too, it is a compulsion to have that new flavor. Bloggers need to be aware of this fact before they set about punching at their keyboard to get a job done.

In 2013, it is greatly known that bloggers are present all around the world – and some great ones at that – who know what they are doing. At least some of them do. And those ‘some’ are a number big enough to give the other bloggers a run for their money. If you are really serious about blogging and want to make it work, then you need to learn about what makes them so good at what they do and do your stuff accordingly. It is a given that every good writer has his/her own style and that style should be apparent in their writings. This distinct style is what makes a writer stand out amongst the others as a person of their own. All that who can’t make that impression is just copying someone else’s style and that is not attractive to any audience.

When writing blog posts, the blogger needs to keep in mind all these points that will make his blog worth the effort for the audience to return back to again and again. If he does not hold their attention, he will lose the audience. Maybe some of them will give him another chance and come again maybe in a week or two but if the light is gone – well, no one wants to stay in the dark too long. You have to remember that there are other lights in the hall, so if your stage isn’t doing it for them, the audience will turn to the next performer to settle their bets.

Another point of the matter is that once you catch the attention does not let it go! Keep up the quality of your good work. Every achiever knows and believes that it is easier to achieve something, but once you achieve it, it is harder to maintain it. The maintenance part is the real job. If the blog has one post that attracted a good audience, they will return for another one in a few days. This time if you have done a good job then voila! You got yourselves some admirers. But if you do a lousy job this second time instead, the audience will slip away because they are not getting enough flavor from your spices.

It’s not always easy to write to the best of your ability. And pressure is never a good platform to work under. So take a rest for a little while and then write when you feel up to it. If time’s short and you don’t like what you are working with even now, then it might be best to give a little low job to the writing part and use pictorial aid or some video aid instead.

Coco Guarding Frisbees

Coco had a big day of playing fetch with frisbees at the Tamarac Dog park. Many of the other dogs couldn’t be bothered, they were chasing each other and having a great time while their owners where playing frisbee with Coco…. I never expected her to be so good at fetch….
