Big Dogs

Hercules: The World's Biggest Dog Ever According to The Guinness World Records

Hercules was recently awarded the honorable distinction of Worlds Biggest Dog by Guinness World Records. Hercules is an English Mastiff and whas a 38 inch neck and weighs 282 pounds.

With "paws the size of softballs" (reports the Boston Herald), the three-year-old monster is far larger and heavier than his breed's standard 200lb. limit. Hercules owner Mr. Flynn says that Hercules weight is natural and not induced by a bizarre diet: "I fed him normal food and he just grew".... and grew. and grew. and grew.

Kell: Slightly Smaller, But The World's Heaviest Dog

Hercules' sheer volume may have won him the Largest Dog world record, but the Heaviest Dog title still rests with Kell who weighed in at 286 pounds in August of 1999. This English Mastiff, however, only has a 32-inch neck - far less than Hercules' 38-incher. Think about that for a second though - 32 inches is a standard waist size for a man!

Proud owner Tom Scott said Kell is two years old and is expected to continue to grow for the next two years. Kell needs to be fed 100lb of beef every week, and drinks gallons of goats' milk to stay healthy... So hopefully Tom Scott is a wealthy man, because most would go broke feeding this monstrosity!

Tom Scott said: "People cannot believe the size of her. When we go to the vet in people stop and stare and they even gather outside the vet's to get a look." Surprising huh?!

Another Touch of Silliness

Ok, instead of sticking out your tongue like on the first "Touch of Silliness." How about you try asking someone if they can stand on one finger. If they can't, then show them how to do it by putting one finger under your foot and saying, "Ha Ha Ha."

A Touch of Silliness

This works best if someone has bragged about his ability to touch his nose with his tongue. If you're determined to perform this stunt, you can bring up the subject yourself: "Can anyone here touch his nose with his tongue?" After some discussion, say, "I can stick out my tongue and touch my ear."
Don't give them too much time to think about it before you stick out your tongue and, with your finger, touch your ear.

1st Rule of Civility

I'll be going through each of these rules of civility by George Washington every day... well I'll try to. Here is the first one, as copied by George Washington.

1st Every Action done in Company, ought to be with Some Sign of Respect, to those that are Present.

All of George Washington's rules of civility teach us how to respect others that are around us. This rule is essentially the foundation for all the others that follow.

This rule says that whatever we do we should show respect to those that are present. We should respect others because the golden rule says, "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you". Also because Jesus said, "Love thy neighbor as thyself". If others aren't shown respect than why should they show respect to us? If we want friends than WE have to be friendly and respect them as much as we can.


Today is a new day! It's the first day of the rest of my life. Today . . . I got up late. So I have lost some of today. But today I'm going to do more than yesterday.Today I will be posting on this blog a lot!
Goodbye for now!

My Life

Today I planted lettuce in a garden which I share with my Grandpa. A while later my uncle Kenny came over and set this blog up for me. Some of my interests are piano, gardening, computers and technology, riding my cousins quad, being strong and healthy, playing with my younger siblings, working for my grandparents, and cracking bull whips so loud that I can't hear for a few seconds.
