    So we are clear, Annie is a Yellow Lab. Not sure if some think she is a Husky.

    I agree with the Huskies, that is going too far.

    I read in River Out of Eden by Richard Dawkins (or maybe it was The Ancestor's Tale) that the tortoise is the only animal that has evolved from water onto land (with the original primordial land animal migration), than back to water (as a turtle) and then back to land again (as a tortoise).

    I have not googled it to check if I remembered it correctly but there is defo one animal that has done that, according to the Dawkster, and I think it was the tortoise.

    ^ You have to wonder why they bothered with all that when they could have just evolved on to land, been happy and stayed as something that moves a bit faster and has more uses than an ashtray?

    If they think that's a husky then they've never even seen a picture of a husky.

    In the UK there is no such thing as a yellow lab, they are golden labs.

    Golden Labs
    Chocolate Labs
    Black Labs

    and that's it i think.

    There's no such thing as color either but generally we can work it out.

    Apparently they are yellow, i have never heard them referred to as yellow in the UK only golden, so JPPR is technically right.

    In the states they have always been referred to as Yellow. The Retriever breed was referred to as Golden of which we have one here as well and she also lives in water constantly. Our Chocolate Lab oddly doesn't like water. She did as a puppy but around 2 years stays away from it. Never had a Lab that didn't love water both in the states and here.

    Agreed. There were references after I posted my pic of my pup in the water.

    That said, I agree that Huskies shouldn't be here. Most that have them as I have been shown by my wife never leave an ACd house.

    Ya, you take good care of your dogs and Annie can always jump in the pool. Huskies in LOS is a bridge too far.

    ^^I agree. Huskies shouldn't be in the tropics. In the last 5 years, I've seen more huskies in my hood. I think they're more of a vanity breed here in PH. I've seen a husky which wasn't well maintained and the fur on its tail was all tangled up.

    Well we're highly unlikely to see them pulling a sled through the snow here either! They're arguably the cutest puppy ever, often having blue eyes and seemingly trying to talk/argue from a young age. And therein lays their fault unfortunately, that's why people buy them. I've seen them riding in the back of pick-ups here under the blazing sun and clearly distressed, but the owners probably think it looks cool.

    Yea I always had it as golden retriever and yellow lab. Annie looks like a block head lab, very cute.

    I noticed that my dinner last night came in for some criticism... unfairly so in my view.

    But if you think dinner looked bad... this is the kind of thing I have to contend with in Isaan.

    I opened up the microwave last night to heat up the baked beans and was confronted by this plate of 'food' that the wife must have forgotten about in her haste to go to another 3 day funeral.



    There's 4 different 'dishes' on this plate... a green if you can name them all!

    I hesitated to put this even in the street dog bowl.


    But it's not all bad of course. As I was having my morning coffee down by the pond I looked up and noticed that I had a lovely bunch of coconuts.



    I knocked one down and it supplied two big cups of coconut milk.

    Is it called coconut water AO? I wasn't sure and was going to call it coconut juice but went for milk! It didn't look very milky, that's for sure.

    Two big cups of coconut water it is!

    Coconut juice is fine as well, but its essentially a water. Mike is right its the grated coconut flesh mixed with water that forms the milk.

    Most markets have a coconut stall where they have a machine to scrape out the white flesh. You get it home and mix it with water and squeeze it to get the milk.
