Thanks to Paul Buckless, former blogger and BTD forum leader, I have learned this tidbit about Skatewing (see last blog):
"Erika, Skate is a flat fish that looks similar to a B1 bomber, slim body wih broad wings that flap like a bird of the ocean. Skate wing is just that, the fleshy wing of the fish called Skate. Paul

Now the real question is....is it beneficial for a Type A? Hmmm......I didn't see this one in the Typebase!
Well, with this new house, I have been aching to get a pet for quite some time. I began visiting the humane society hoping to find a nice cat or dog, or both. Well, I found this beautiful dog that lost its home (word to the wise: microchip your pets!). The family who found him posted notices around the neighborhood hoping to find his owners but to no avail.
He is the sweetest boy. Half lab and probably half rottweiler. No one is sure about the rottweiler but the drool, the protectiveness over the household (it's only been over a day!), the flatulence, and the eagerness to work and please all point to this conclusion. He does pretty well on the gentle leader so I'm relieved about that being that he almost weighs as much as I do! I'm trying to feed him as healthy of pet foods as possible. I certainly don't want him to eat tablet scraps and weigh more!
Before I got him, he was named Doug by the shelter. No one is sure of his previous name which makes training a bit of a challenge but he knows all the basic commands (sit, down, stay, get your toy, etc.) Whoever had him really did train him well except for the fact that he's a little escape artist. He is a huge ball of energy and will be very good for getting me out of the house to walk off stress and get my butt in shape, literally. This dog walks very fast!
While Aaron (Grubster) and I were walking Doug, there was another dog barking to protect his property. Doug looked up in excitement. At that point, Aaron said, "We're experiencing a dog-dog interaction." It was hilarious!
(Cheesy pharmacy humor. I guess you had to be there.)
That's all for now...
Oh, and here is another tip....butterbur (distributed by Enzymatic Therapy) works very well for migraines! Believe me on this one!
