I like the black and white if you could get the highlights on the flower and butterfly a little closer to white rather than grey. Maybe. I'd have to see it that way to decide.
Ahh special powers!

Well Mila and I are by ourselves. My wife went to visit her mother yesterday. She should be back Saturday afternoon.

So was worried about Mila being by herself for so long for her first time- but she did well. However, today will be the longest she will be by herself since we have had her. Hope all goes well

Given the apparent Female Nature OBSESSION, with "ball playing".
(proven @ all ages now)
- Beau comes to the rescue here, with MORE added FACTS
- of Girly Chicken Hawk Interest !!

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Wikipedia
Neuticles are prosthetic testicular implants for neutered dogs and other domestic animals. The implants may be made of polypropylene or silicone.


Fake dog testicles made this man a millionaire
https://www.cnbc.com/2018/05/22/neut...ller-rich.html

Gregg Miller proves you can make a fortune with anything. Even dog balls.

Not the kind you throw around playing in the dog park.

“What I’m doing is I’m developing testicular implants for pets,” Miller tells CNBC.

The 64-year-old inventor and entrepreneur created Neuticles, silicone implants for male dogs to replace testicles after neutering, so that a dog’s appearance...down there...doesn’t change.

It’s made him a millionaire.

Do dogs care about this? “Yes, they do,” Miller says.

Certainly their owners must. Over the last 20 years, Miller claims he’s sold over 500,000 sets of Neuticles. The average pair costs $310, though some cost a lot more, like the $2,800 watermelon-sized custom set Miller made for an elephant in a zoo.

Yup.

The strange path to success

Gregg Miller grew up near Kansas City and studied journalism at Central Missouri State, but he hated the newspaper business, so he started his own advertising company over the objections of his parents. “They didn’t think about being an entrepreneur as a positive thing,” he says.

One day he noticed a catalog came in the mail in a tube. “I thought, ‘God, something more can be done with this little tube than just mailing a catalog.’” He decided to put candy in it.

Miller invented SweeTube, a three-foot long tube filled with layers of candy, which he ended up selling to outlets like Macy’s and Disneyland. A dozen years later, he stopped. “Believe me, after 12 years of the candy business, you get kind of sick of it,” he said. “It gets sticky, the shelf life is bad, people don’t pay their bills. So I thought, ‘What can I do?’”

This was in the mid ’90s, and Miller had recently bought a bloodhound puppy named Buck. He refused to neuter Buck, not wanting to put the dog (or himself) through that experience. But one day Buck went missing, a story which still makes Miller emotional. “It was the most hideous four days of my life,” he says.

The idea for Neuticles came when Miller’s dog Buck ran away.Courtesy of Gregg Miller
Buck had apparently taken off after smelling the scent of a female dog in heat. He was eventually found a few miles away. “He saw me, I saw him...and it’s like what you see in the scene when there’s two fat people running across the field to embrace.” Miller realized, though, that he needed to neuter Buck, or “this is going to happen again.’”

That’s when the idea for Neuticles first came into Gregg Miller’s head. He asked his veterinarian if someone made implants, “so Buck can maintain his God-given natural look.” The vet told him that was “the craziest damn thing I’ve ever heard of.”

Miller went ahead and had Buck neutered, though he hated putting the puppy through the surgery. Afterward, Buck went to clean himself. “He loved to do that. The slurping noise that was so freaking obnoxious,” Miller says, mimicking a slurping hound sound. He’s convinced Buck noticed something was missing, and the dog looked back up at his master. “He was telling me, ‘They’re gone. What happened?’”

Not long after this, Miller says the veterinarian changed his mind about a testicular implant being “crazy,” and the two of them started to develop a prototype.

Success...and failure...and success

Miller says he and a group of 32 local investors spent over $100,000 to develop Neuticles. “I maxed out my credit cards and then maxed out the mortgage on my home.”

The veterinarian tested the first prototypes on 30 different pets without any problems, and the first commercially implanted Neuticles went into a dog in 1995. “My parents, who were alive back then, thought I was absolutely crazy,” Miller says. “Everybody that I knew thought that was the sickest thing you could possible think of. Printers would not even print my material.”

Still, there was a lot of media attention. It soon wore off, and Miller was bleeding cash. “For the first five years, I didn’t know whether we would make it,” he says. He was down to a single working light bulb at one point. “Whenever I went from room to room, I had to take my light bulb with me to put into a light socket.”

Miller began advertising in dog magazines. He did radio interviews around the country and offered free Neuticles to listeners. He built up a network of veterinarians, and business finally boomed. “I was getting literally anywhere between 250 and 500 responses a day,” he says.

The clunking problem

There was a problem, however. The original Neuticles were made of a hard plastic-like material. Customers complained their dogs made a “clunking” sound when they walked or sat down. “That was an issue that we endured for three years until some genius, God bless him wherever he was, invented solid silicone,” Miller says.

The most popular Neuticles are now made of solid silicone which is textured to prevent scar tissue from forming, and they cost as much as $469 a pair. “It’s incredibly gushy-soft.”

Miller says celebrity clients include the Kardashians, who bought a pair a few years ago for their dog Rocky. “They had ordered the cheapest ones possible,” Miller laughed, “the hard ones, the clackers, and I thought, ‘Wow.’”

Of course, not everyone is a fan. Miller said that even though there has never been a complication from Neuticles over the last quarter century, “We have a lot of haters.” His reaction? “Mind your own damn business.”

The product has even been banned in a few countries, a fact Miller is proud of, but he doesn’t let such details stop him from meeting demand from customers in those far-off lands. To get the product through customs, he just rebrands it. “What I do is I call it a stress ball.”

Neuticles come in 11 different sizes to fit a variety of pets, and Miller has expanded his product line to include eye implants for animals, including horses, along with stays for holding up cropped ears and allergy products for sensitive pet skin. He even turned some Neuticles into pendant earrings and necklaces, and he’s written a book called, “Going...Going...Nuts.”

Miller said he and a group of 32 local investors spent over $100,000 to develop Neuticles.CNBC
As successful as he’s been, Miller has no intention of making implants for humans. It costs too much and takes too long to gain FDA approval, while implants for pets require no approval at all.

Indeed, fake dog balls has turned out to be his most lucrative endeavor. Miller calls his home outside Independence, Missouri, “The House that Neuticles Built.” It comes complete with a man cave housing a walk-in humidor for his expensive cigar collection, working slot machines from Las Vegas, and a sauna where Miller sweats away his stress after a day of work — “You’ve got fluids coming out of you that you never knew existed from every part of your body.”

Sometimes Miller drives his new Mercedes down the highway to one of the six billboards advertising Neuticles he put up along I-70. “When I’m driving my brand new car, and I pass the billboard, I get this rush that is indescribable,” he says. “I mean, it’s a feeling of ‘Wow.’”

Buck the bloodhound died several years back, but Gregg Miller enjoys life these days with a bulldog named Humphrey, who has also been neutered and implanted with Neuticles. As much as Miller believes neutered dogs miss their, you know, parts, “Let’s face it, the pet owner is the one who writes the check, so it’s more for the pet owner.”

Miller claims he’s sold over 500,000 sets of Neuticles.CNBC
He believes his invention has actually encouraged some pet owners to neuter their dogs. “Their dogs don’t have to be turned into eunuchs anymore, and, to me, that’s priceless.”

I would gladly trade you weather...it hasn't rained here in weeks, and we've been in the mid to upper 90s with record or near record temps. Blah! I was looking at the 10-day forecast and they *claim* we'll finally get down to the upper 70s in about 9-10 days; I'll believe it when I see it though.

Mocha and I did our morning hike thingy today, a few pics:
Fungus among us


A few pics of Miss Mocha. I find I can get my best pics of her as we're hiking in the woods and she has other stuff like smells and sounds to keep her occupied; when I get her outside and try to get her to pose, she pretty much ignores me and gets impatient (unless I remember to bring CHEESE) LOL




We did find a few butterflies on the flowers near the visitor center



We did 4 miles, Mocha is laying here out like a light, done like a dinner...our Shih-Tzu has a vet appointment this afternoon for yet another ear infection, poor guy has had them almost all his life, and always the right ear

Great pics as always, TN! Are you using a tripod or monopod for the macro shots?


Interesting article related to your fungus sighting (from Indiana Public Media). I just pulled a big one off my huge oak tree in front of our house. Forgot to get a picture, though...

Nope, everything I shoot is hand held; every now and then I'll break out the tripod for a moon shot but I'm usually too lazy LOL

There are some who theorize that some meadows are just a large fungus which inhibits the growth trees and shrubs (woody plants). Many other factors can explain a meadow . i just like the thought of some type of unseen battle going on.

A few pics of Miss Mocha. I find I can get my best pics of her as we're hiking in the woods and she has other stuff like smells and sounds to keep her occupied; when I get her outside and try to get her to pose, she pretty much ignores me and gets impatient (unless I remember to bring CHEESE) LOL

We did find a few butterflies on the flowers near the visitor center

We did 4 miles, Mocha is laying here out like a light, done like a dinner...our Shih-Tzu has a vet appointment this afternoon for yet another ear infection, poor guy has had them almost all his life, and always the right ear
You have some great places to walk!

The power of cheese

Mila did good again today being left by herself. I did slide out of work 2 hours early

And of course being pent up all day she was ready to run! We went out - did her business....then played. She still loves to run and do a dive bomb onto her shoulder and roll and pop to the next shoulder to roll. I worry about that in advancing years....since I have shoulder issues I wince when she does it.

Yeah gotta be careful of those Dober wipe outs........when Hoss was one year he did a roll and tumble move......
Took me 6 months and a 3000 dollar MRI to determine he had nerve endings in his chest that were all fired up causing Hoss to yelp when he moved
certain ways. Chit I thought he had wobblers or something........Hoss had 6 months of non steroid anti-inflamatories ......and some tramadol ...along with walking on leash only........no rough play with toys at all....we finally got that condition under control. It was scary......and expensive..........

Ouch! Dobers are definitely not for the faint of heart

When I throw the ball or donut she will run full blast and slide into it very hard (Molly and O.D. did the same so don't think unique). Another issue is sloped ground with pine straw...slippery - I thought might be better than hard ground gives a bit. But not sure.

Rant coming on.

So, based on the weather predictions, I must go to the fair on the hottest day? And, the hottest part of the day?

Crap, guess I am going to have to make two trips to the fair. Saturday in the morning to look at the pony ride and Sunday in the evening, to see the Finals on the hitch.

The dude that hosts the pony ride has got it all set up! Every year, he's set up under trees and has a curvy trail taped off. He leads two ponies with a kid each on their backs, like they are going on a real trail ride!

I wish I was a kid again. I never had a pony ride like that.

Wow, 2,384 acres, that is huge! I would love to see that.
Took me an extra 20 minutes to get home from work tonight. Rain was coming down so hard my wipers couldn't keep up. Oh! And, I've only got one headlight, on the side of the road with no stripe. Blind side was the center line.

I just knew I was going to hurt Guz tonight! Plus! I got soaked just coming into the house.

I was so happy to dry off and get into my jammies!



There is no place like home!

Just realized it is Friday the 13th!

"Full Moon is the lunar phase on 13 September 2019, Friday."

came from https://www.calendar-12.com/moon_cal...2019/september

Maybe TN can stay up tonight and get us a few moon shots!

Have a good day folks! Time to get ready for work. Wife comes home tomorrow so Mila will get a reprieve from being cooped up - but one more day for her!!

Hmmm better clean up

I can't cast ANY blame on our dear KEN, and I found SP & LDi had exercised unbelievable control (judgement, containing their potty mouth) for once.

Glad to have Ya LDi.
- sure red flag Beau, in Border Customs computer...Thks friend
- but no passport, no party-party on the Canadian side...wroom-wroom
- rain or snow, the Biker Party is never cancelled, on a Friday the 13th
- lots of Bikers, will drive by our house...Port Dover is under an hour away
- famous for Perch fish dinners, in the small town Hotel (watering hole)


Friday The 13th Port Dover Ontario Canada - Origins
In 1971 when George Simons gave his son a Rupp minibike, he never dreamt he would be instilling a life-long passion in his son Chris. Chris Simons has since owned several dozen bikes. He knows bikes inside-out and top to bottom. Chris also had a well-known bike shop in Port Dover called 'Biker's Delight'.

The Friday the 13th tradition started in 1981. It was the same year that a group of head-banging teenagers had come together in Los Angeles to form Metallica. Despite a recent assassination attempt, the president of the United States was still Ronald Reagan. Pierre Trudeau was prime minister of Canada, while Bill Davis was premier of Ontario. The Rolling Stones were singing "Start Me Up" and "An American Werewolf in London" was playing in theatres.

Against the backdrop, Chris Simons and approximately 25 friends, through word of mouth, got together at the Commerical Hotel {The Zoo}, now known as Angelos of Dover. It was in November and it was Friday the 13th. They had such a good time they decided they should do it every Friday the 13th. And so the tradition was born.

Every Friday the 13th thereafter, the number of people coming to the event has increased. Chris has a suitcase full of newspaper and magazine clippings regarding Friday the 13th and he has become somewhat of a celebrity because of it. Everywhere he goes, people have heard of Friday the 13th in Port Dover.

Despite some rumours, the September 2019 Friday the 13th rally in Port Dover will see hundreds of thousands of bikers taking over the beautiful beachside town. You've gotta be there!

The problem with the full moon is, it's so bright that it's hard to get good detail with a camera (these are both older pics)

I prefer capturing a partial moon, so much better detail
