Dogs
I. The Great Swiss Mountain Dog
A breed descended from the great Molloser that accompanied Hannibal across the Alps when he invaded Rome.
Swissys were used by Swiss farmers to haul carts to market and as drivers to drive their
cattle. Many Swissys still retain these working abilities today. The breed was used as
late as World War II as pack dogs by the Swiss Army

The breed was almost extinct around the turn of the century and numbers have been slowly
increasing. Swissys are in great demand as pets because of their stable temperaments.


I. The New Guinea Singing Dog
Is a natural breed of wild origin. The over all impression is that of an extremely agile
and graceful animal with a fox- like appearance. A tonal love is a unique characteristic
of the breed. New Guinea Singing Dogs are highly active, lively, and alert. They are
constantly exploring everything in their environment, using all five senses including
taste. Although usually gentle and affectionate with people, they can be aggressive toward
other dogs, especially of the same gender.

  • Education and Egalitarianism in America
    Education and Egalitarianism in America The American educator Horace Mann once said: "As an apple is not in any proper sense an apple until it is ripe, so a human being is not in any proper sense a human being until he is educated." Education is the process through which people endeavor to pass along to their children their hard-won wisdom and their aspirations for a better world. This process begins shortly after birth, as parents seek to train the infant to behave as their culture demands. The
  • Animal cruelty
    Animal cruelty Jeff Albrecht Joseph Aimone Writing and Rhetoric 13 December 2000 Animal Cruelty One of the most touchy aspects of our relationship with animals is the use of animals in laboratory sciences. Some manufactures of cosmetics and household products still conduct painful and useless tests on live animals, even though no law requires them not to. Some people, called anti-vivisectionists, are at one extreme in their concern. They want an abolition of all experiments on live animals. At t

  • None Provided
    None Provided Chapter 1(pgs.15-24) In first chapter, the reader is introduced to all of his wonderful animals. Obviously most of the chapter is intended to spark pity and a sense of sympathy for the poor, suffering farm animals, but the old Major\'s words are very telling. The "wise" old pig addresses the central conflict of the book, and of Orwell\'s intended meaning-- tyranny. The first (and seemingly only) dictatorship the animals must overcome is the rule of Mr. Jones and the other humans. T

  • Animal Farm2
    Animal Farm2 ˙Introduction “Animal Farm” is a symbolical political satire in which animals take the place of humans. These animals can talk and are just as intelligent as humans. They learn to read and each type of animal a different aspect of humanity. (Ex.: Pigs- Politicians; Horses- Laborers; Sheep- Gullible People; etc. ) This book shows how a government that is set up to serve the people turns against them, just like communism did to the Russian people. Animalism symbolizes communism and th

    The Eyes of the Dragon The theme of the book, The Eyes of the Dragon, by Stephen King, is to stick to one\'s beliefs no matter what happens and always do what one knows is right. Don\'t give up on oneself; anything is possible. King Roland was the noble king of Delain. He was known as Roland the Good. He was, by far, not a bad king, though he was really not a great king. He meant no harm and was successful, but whenever he meant to do great things, he seemed to be unsuccessful. Roland, king of D

  • Triumph or Tragedy
    Triumph or Tragedy “Never, never, never give up”, was coined by Sir Winston Churchill. This quote holds more meaning than could ever be put into words. Everyday we are faced with obstacles that occur in our lives. How we manage these everyday occurrences make us not only who we are, but also who we hope to become. Nineteen hundred eight six was an exceptional year filled with triumph and tragedy. May I never forget lessons learned and innocence lost. Tragic events do not preclude tragic outcomes

This quote from Ivor Brown probably best describes the strenuous work preformed by a child laborer during the Victorian Era. Child laborers played an important part in developing the country’s economy. Children

    Selecting a Pure Breed All dogs, impure as well as pure-bred, and several wild cousins such as wolves and foxes, are one family. Each breed was created by human beings, using selective breeding to get desired qualities. The result is an almost unbelievable diversity of purebred dogs that will, when bred to others of their breed, produce their own kind. A "breed standard" is a written description of a given breed. This description uses words to define what a breed should look like. A standard exi

    What conclusions do you draw about Bronts Brontë’s novel seems to contain all the typical, traditional Victorian social values and divisions such as the master of the house with servants below him and so on. Social distinctions were very much more marked and rigidly respected. We first glimpse what Brontë might think of social stereotypes and divisions, right at the start of the book through Lockwood, and later through other narrators such as Nelly Dean. Lockwood is seen as the epitome of Victor

    1960s The 1960’s were a time of major political and social change. These changes were primarily fuelled by the youth of the time. Their parents had come from life in both the great depression of the 1930’s as well as World War II, and were on a whole more conservative than their children, a fact the younger generation did not like. In the early 60’s the electronic media (Television and radio) became an important communication tool, as opposed to the largely print based media of previous decades.
