I saw a post (on pinterset I think) about the yellow projet for dog leash, explaining that dogs who have a yellow ribon/bow attached to their leach are those that need more 'space' and don't like to be petted by humans or approched by others dogs. Is this actually something that exist? (I don't have a dog, just curious), is it known? If you do it where did you learned about it?
I guess vet offices and pet stores would be a good place to inform people, it seems like such a nice and smart idea :)

It's a cool idea, but I don't think it will work. Not enough non-dog people will know. I think if your dog needs more "space" maybe make a vest for them or something.

Reminds me of horses and trail riding. Red means stay back, they kick. Yellow is for stallions. White means "For Sale".  And Green means an inexperienced or green horse.  All but red could mean something else depending on the area you are at.

I wouldn't notice a ribbon on a leash other than to think it was an accessory.  But then again I don't get close enough to strange dogs for the ribbon to matter.

I think its a new idea that's being put out there. I had never heard of it, but I've seen a few posts on Facebook recently.
I think its a great idea and more people should post about it, and talk about it and start participating. (And of course those participating should remain patient with people who don't know what it means, a yellow ribbon won't absolve them if there is an issue.)

Where I rode, red on the tail meant they kick and red on the reins meant they bite!  I have never heard of the other ones.


I think this ribbon on the leash thing is a good idea but only if everyone, non-dog owners alike, knows about it.

plain ribbons probably won't work if enough people don't know what they mean, but coincidentally today on the cheeseburger sub site, Must Have Cool, they have a photo of color coded dog leashes with text; green = "friendly" orange = "no dogs" and red = "caution"

Which grow more widely on the globe, grapes or strawberries? This may depend on history as well. I started thinking of the seemingly universal grape jelly vs my favorite strawberry or blackberry jam.

I always have a hard time choosing good sunglasses for my face, it doesn't help that I can't decide if I have a round face or oval.  I've been told it's round but I think it's more oval than round.  But I could be way off, too.  Thoughts, wise ehellions?

Very clearly oval!

Open your picture on Paint and draw a vertical line down your nose and a horizontal line over your cheekbones. You will see that the vertical line is longer than the horizontal. If your face was round, they would be similar.

Certainly oval, and lady_disdain has a great tip for visualizing it!

I think the grape jelly/jam thing is regional since you rarely see it here in Oz. Strawberry is the most common.

But I suspect grapes are grown more since there are so many types and afterall, you need them to make wine. Mmm wine.

Thanks!  That's what I was thinking and wasn't quite sure where the 'round' was coming from.

Went to a local winery today for one of their tastings.  MMM, CHOCOLATE wine!

Oh there's one wine I love, Chocovine that has a raspberry chocolate flavor. YUM!
