Airlines New Bait & Switch Scheduling–I’m Talking About You American Airlines

The airline industry continues to sink to new lows over recent years. Shrinking seats, shrinking legroom, shrinking services. Pay for bags, pay for food, pay for sneezing. Price increases as soon as you do more than one flight search. Yeah, pretty sleazy. Just when you think they couldn’t go any lower…

Border Collie VS Australian Shepherd

Trying to decide between Australian Shepherds and Border Collies?

While there are many similarities, as these breeds both come from the Herding Group, there are also some significant differences.

The following graphic is what the AKC has to say about both breeds:

Border Collies vs AussiesBreaking this all down in real life, what does this mean? What are the differences between Australian Shepherds and Border Collies? Superficially, it means things like both are herding dogs with keen intelligence and an astounding work ethic.

Aussies are a little bit more ruggedly built, they always have a double coat, they have fewer colors from which to choose. Both will shed year-round. Both […]
