    Oh, you mean the one that uses a clever advertising technique to get exposure?

    all suggestions sound great.
    Id add, start saving newspapers for the dog to pee on etc
    Get a dog tag engraved ready


    And my fave: when everyone's outside cooing over pup, appear to be really really strict with pup, overly strict say, twice, when others are watching, and see how fast they bring that pup into the house coz you've been mean lol
    Inside dog dilema: sorted lol
    Hahaha I'll give that a shot.

    My only advice - EVERYTHING is chewable! Puppies explore with their mouth - check the plants in your garden, are they poisonous? Everything, everything, everything is chewable... (*rocks back and forth holding head, "put that down pip, put it down")...
    No poisonous plants or anything like that. Sounds like the vapour rub will be very handy.

    a clever advertising technique to get exposure
    Or a clever advertising technique to reduce exposure to barely legal...

    I wonder if they'd bother with strategically placed wispy things in Europe.

    speaking of strategically placed wispy things. I learnt a new word yesterday at work:
    Merkin.
    Do a google on pictures. I seriously have been doing things very wrong for too many decades!

    Are you serious? Think about how many consumers have seen the ad only because it has been discussed on just about every news and slightly news-related program on Australian television, let alone the Internet, newspapers and other forms of media. Not only have these consumers seen the ad because of its 'controversy', but watched it properly. Think about it; how many ads do you concentrate on and listen thoroughly to while you're watching TV? I bet you did while watching this one.
    And nobody in the media has been smart enough to point out the 'controversy' is merely an advertising technique, but instead spend time discussing it on their program only giving the ad more exposure.

    Sorry for the rant!

    Double meaning...

    exposure... the model is under exposed (ie still legal much to many red blooded males disappointment)... and the ad is over exposed.

    Okay, I will be travelling for a month in Europe this December; should I get the dog now and give it to someone I know who owns dogs for the month or wait until early next year to get it?
    The benefit of getting it now would be I get to buy my dog from the breeder I have already chosen and trust (who won't be breeding again any time soon, so I probably won't be able to get it from her later without a very long wait), but I do have to give the dog away for a month. Waiting would mean I'd have to find another breeder, which might not always work out and - of course - I'd have to wait another half year at least.

    Also, if anyone would like to know, we have decided for him to be an inside/outside dog. He will be outside or in a space we are going to make for him in the garage when we are not home and spend time inside the house each day when we are home.

    Tough one. It really is hard to leave your dog for that long - I've had to do it a few times. When would you be getting the dog if you do go with this breeder?

    And good news that he will be allowed inside. I really feel quite sorry for dogs who don't get to spend time inside with their owners. Having a dog inside brings its own trials, but it also offers an extra incentive to train them and also creates a lot more training opportunities.

    I would be getting it an the end of this week, probably Saturday. Which means it will be almost six months old in December.

    I'm very glad he'll be coming inside too.
