The Beatles, Run For Your Life, is definitely the catchiest song about domestic abuse.

If you have the time and a bit of patience, training them yourself is fun for both of you.

Joined the dog owner club and got myself and the wife a wee boxer pup. The whole show just loves him. Any training tips and advice would be appreciated.

Keep the sessions short and fun.  Treats immediately for any progress towards what you want him to do.  The sit command is easy, and is the basis for a lot of other commands.  Just hold a treat over his head, about where his ears are, and he'll maneuver into a sitting position to try to get it. 

There's lots of books.  This one is pretty good:,204,203,200_QL40_&dpSrc=srch

Will anyone?

These are elected politicians agreeing that good toddlers with guns is a great idea. We're fucked.

I think we're seeing an early glimpse of a real weakness in the current competition structure. You have a good side that is very strong in defence, playing a side that they're not likely to beat. But because it's a league setup, and they'd give themselves a fair chance of winning the other two games, it's imperative that they don't get hammered.  So despite an imminent loss, there is no incentive for them to try to win if doing so risks a tanking. Imagine how the last ten minutes might have gone if Donegal had been facing exit from the tournament.

So, is it a rule change thats needed, or a return to qf knockout?

Are the four lads allowed to cross back into their own half once the ball does? Because that's just giving them, bt means of a rule change, what they wanted and couldn't achieve: the attacking team forced into a smaller area of the pitch, and thus easier to dispossess.

Imagine if Ireland had beaten Colombia on pennos and had "only" Croatia standing in the way of a wcf, as opposed to say the Brazil,  Germany or Argentina teams of yore. With the best chance of a wcf in a lifetime, wouldn't we lose the run of ourselves?

Dublin always play this way against defensive teams when they have the lead. I agree it's terrible to watch, but isn't the answer to play less defensively?  Or are we expected to repeat our hari Kiri Donegal 2014 performance to make it easier for everyone else?

It's like noone told Brazil that Belgium do counterattacks.

Whatís the feeling in Donegal about their teamís chances in this game? What are the chances of Donegal doing a repeat of 2014?

Would you ever give over with your trying to talk about the match...

I'd fancy either Colombia  to beat England tbh. Poland maybe, if they get their act together after the last day.

Why stop at splitting Dublin. In my opinion we should just have each club in Dublin enter the county championship seperately

Are you in favour of doing the same with Mayo?

Canít understand the narrative that Iceland deserved a point. They just packed the defence and hacked it out all second half. At least Argentina tried to play the right way, passed it around and created what few chances there were.

Can't understand the idea that they didn't deserve the point.  They executed their game plan almost perfectly and denied Argentina the space to cause much damage.  An exceptionally well organized defense, and decent enough on the break.  Well worth their point, and I hope not to have to watch them again.

They gave away two clear penalties, one called and one ignored. Hard to say they deserved the result in that context.
And the keeper saved the one that was called. That's part of deserving it.
