Comeon, Slash, don't be such a centric inotolerast (sry if this isn't a word in English yet!) again. I might be unable to pronounce the 'h'-s for some politically correct reason, after all, which would make it my unique style, right?!
AND, once-thunker, was the thread really meant to learn Vietnamese phrases?? Not that I personally would object, but if you swish around with 'original intent' this or that...

Hey ice ou...or rather chill out Probes - you just learnt a Viet
phrase. Not much use to you in everyday life, but it did add
to yer general knowledge dinnit?

I mean look at the stuff I learned this week - I went Merriam-
Webstering for "lugubrious", Cerumol can unblock bunged-up
ears, never knew there was a Mary Coughlan in existence and
that King Eadwig was a lecherous lad!

A fount of wisdom and knowledge, this thread.

ok, Slash, a cedarwood calumet (and don't say they're not made of cedar! ) then.


P.S actually I just love good phrases of any language. Could produce a limited variety myself, though, no Asian ones unfortunately , so welcome.
P.P.S went FreeOnline'ing for 'lugubrious', too .

Odo ... Norman Bishop of Bayeaux and Earl of Kent (1030-1097), half brother of William the Conqueror, who fought alongside William at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 and was rewarded with countless honours, wealth and power for being on the winning side; he built fine Norman castles and cathedrals all over England, (often using high quality stone imported from Caen in Normandy), which have lasted almost a thousand years. Quite a guy, as they say ...

agoraphobe ... a person with a dread of being in open spaces or public places - a very serious constraint on living a normal life


DXW: I wonder if Bryn was after a pint of "Flying Dog"?

I believe he was dropping a large hint to the landlord that he hadn't been given a dog treat* yet and also that the water bowl needed refilling but nothing would surprise me.
* He knows where all the treats are kept in the various places he goes to (vet, pet shops etc) and is quick to point out their location should the staff have apparently forgotten

Tuborg isn't a veritable beer anyway (matter of taste, of course, but...), so Bryn can't be after that.

(DXW, is it a must about the muzzle-thing - what'sitcalled - for big dogs, or why does he have it?)

least - smallest
Probie, it's not a muzzle, it's a Halti headcollar. Many people use them to stop their dogs pulling on the lead but I think they are kinder than collars and better than harnesses so use it as a matter of choice, not necessity. The control element is secondary for me. He can open his mouth properly so has no muzzling effect at all. Mind you, the fact that to some people it may look like a muzzle can have a beneficial effect - especially when in the presence of somewhat dubious characters.

To stop the dog may be good, but letting them take a couple of extra steps shows quickly if the dubious characters deserve their label.

My Airedale was very friendly to humans but just two quick steps towards a "character" usually triggered a withdrawal among the dubious ones…. And she wasn't even big. Just two feet.

opportune - as in the right moment
Welsh sheepdogs tend to be quite vocal so one bark from a Halti-wearing Bryn can have a dramatic effect.

neckerchief - for people. Does not include snout.

PPrune went down yesterday when I was looking for sth with a more interesting ending and ended up with 'oppositive', which really surprised me - but not enough to harm the PPRuNe, I guess - as it looks/sounds like 'oh!positive' and is not positive.

And I was wondering if there's a regulation in the UK about bigger dogs having to wear the Halti-thing or muzzle (in some countries there is).

Efferous PPRuNers may need mufflers.

I think by now muzzles have been over-represented…...

use of a muffler in winter will help keep your neck warm.
No, Probie, no such law, only one for those on the official list of breeds of dangerous dogs.

Several

Laws are in place to deal with anti-social hounds and owners.
