I hadn't considered it but a beagle's baroo does sound like "who" so some Saints fans help out this pooch by adding "dat" after his howl. (For the New Orleans newbies, the chant — "Who dat say dey gonna beat dem Saints" — is often shortened to "Who Dat" on shirts and signs.) Could your pups play along?
If you were to stop and go through the quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies weighing down your purse or cluttering up your car cup holder, how much do you think you'd collect? $10? $25? Well, according to the experts at Coinstar, the average amount cashed in for eCertificates and/or gift cards at their coin kiosks is a whopping $56 — twice as much as people think they have. Talk about a nice, unexpected chunk of change as we head into the holiday season (especially since so many of us go over budget on holiday shopping!).
Our advice to you: make every coin count! Take a few minutes to grab all the spare change "jingle-belling" in your purses, pockets, car, and desk drawers, then hit your local Coinstar kiosk, where you can turn the contents of your coin jar into cash or no-fee eCertificates from popular brands, including Amazon, iTunes, Gap, and Starbucks. Click here to find the Coinstar kiosk closest to you.
Now that you know there might be more change lying around than you think, what would you do with those extra pennies this holiday?
It's been a jam-packed week with both the Super Bowl and the Puppy Bowl coming Sunday! We'll also be getting ready for Westminster and a whole lot more. See how much you remember by taking this recap quiz.
I enjoy football but I'm no expert on the moves. However, since North loves his Orbee-Tuff pigskin, I researched some fundamental drills for youth (human youth, that is) and adapted them for furry friends instead.
- Both Knees Drill Its purpose (for people) is to warm up arms, but getting down on both knees helps you get on doggie eye level. You'll be the quarterback, and pooch is the receiver — pick a target (near him but not at him!), throw, and see how close you get . . . and how quickly he grabs the ball. Don't worry, there's no dead ball rule when it hits the ground for animals.
- Circle Toss Practice throwing on the run by running in a circle while playing catch. This lets a pup get extra exercise by having to both chase you and pay attention to the ball — and where it lands — at the same time.
