The Fetch

an article by Dee

I wanted to apologize for not writing anything for the past two weeks. I just was down in the slumps. Kinda running out of ideas for the newspaper.

I wanted to mention that I hoped everyone had a great Easter (those who celebrate it) or day. :)I am going to add a little "Did you know?"

Did you know that in the year of 2018, Easter will be on April 1st? That is right. Easter will be on April Fools Day that year unless it is changed. How weird will that be?

Just a reminder. Stay safe for Spring break.

It is going to be a short story contest, those who wish to participate write a short story with a minimum of 250 words and a maximum of 500 words. The story must have something to do with dogs and it can be any genre. You will be judged on:
  • spelling
  • grammar
  • structure
  • general excitement

Please send all entries to my inbox here on BSK or to dee@bskgame.com

The contest starts April 9th and ends on May 1st.

Prizes are as follows:
  • 1st: 1 year Upgrade / story feature
  • 2nd: 6 month upgrade
  • 3rd: 3 month upgrade

Prizes will be handed out shortly after the contest ends and the winners announced. Good luck to everyone!!

April Fools Day

You know what day it is? That is right. It is April Fools Day! The day that is filled with pranks. What will you do today?

April Fools' Day, sometimes called All Fools' Day, is one of the most light-hearted days of the year. Its origins are uncertain. Some see it as a celebration related to the turn of the seasons, while others believe it stems from the adoption of a new calendar.

April Fools' Day is observed throughout the Western world. Practices include sending someone on a "fool's errand," looking for things that don't exist; playing pranks; and trying to get people to believe ridiculous things. The French call April 1 Poisson d'Avril, or "April Fish." French children sometimes tape a picture of a fish on the back of their schoolmates, crying "Poisson d'Avril" when the prank is discovered.
Contest Are Over

So another round of contest comes to an end. Once again I am saddened that no one entered. Upgrades and art were prizes to be had. Oh well.

I as the Game Admin is having a hard time with contest due to lack of interest, there will be a hold on any new ones for awhile.

Top 10 fun things to do

Dog Park Play Date
Spring brings in ffresh grass and warm weather. What a pperfect time to bring your doggy pal(s) to the park for some fun with other dogs. Also you can get some socializing in at the same time.

Playing Fetch
Once the spring thaw melts the snow and ice that so easily rubs your pup’s paws raw, grab the tennis ball and play a game of fetch until your dog drops from happy exhaustion.

Playing at the Beach
Our carefree canines can’t control themselves when faced with seemingly endless miles of sand and surf. The beach is the idyllic place to spend that spring break — your furry mate can run and romp to its heart’s delight while you get started on that tan.

Scale tall mountains in a single bound
One of the greatest pleasures in a dog’s life is connecting with nature, particularly on hikes through terrain teeming with wild smells, lots of trees and little critters running amok. While you’re at it, you’ll both get some fresh air and plenty of exercise

Run Like the Wind
If you love to run as much as your pup, there’s no better time to tie up your running shoes than right now. Be sure to keep your pawed pal on a leash to protect it from cars when you’re running through heavily trafficked areas. You can even give your running more purpose by registering for the nearest dog-friendly 5K.

Doggy Agility
Our canines thrive on mental and physical stimulation. Sign your pup up for agility training this spring and satisfy its craving for mind-body challenges while making you a proud pet mom.

This spring with your dog

Camping With Your Dog(s)
Spring is a great time to introduce camping to your furry best friend. Find pet-friendly campsites, take plenty of treats and make sure there’s room in the tent for the two of you. The best part? You can camp all the way into fall, giving your dog plenty of time to enjoy the great outdoors.

Random Sports
Our energetic canines aren’t usually picky when it comes to playtime. Mix up your usual tennis ball fetching games with footballs, basketballs, Frisbees, ropes, sticks or miniature tires. Throw them, hide them or play keep-away from your pup until you’re both delightfully played out.

Jump In The Pool
Since some lakes and streams may still be too chilly for a dip, find a pup-friendly pool (kiddie pools work fine, too!) and go for a swim.

Pet-friendly Vacation
Even if you can’t spend every waking minute immersed in the great outdoors, you can still use your spring break to head to a serene place where you can relax, and your dog can go nature crazy for the week.

Media review: Divergent

 

Plot: A science fiction trilogy, set in the future United States. The fenced-in section of the country is all they know, all outside it was supposably destroyed. The people inside are split into five "factions": Abnegation, the selfless; Erudite, the smart; Amity, the kind; Candor, the truthful; and Divergent, the brave. The story follows Beatrice Prior, a sixteen year old girl who has lived her life in Abnegation. When she takes the test to see what faction they recommend, she scores three factions-inconclusive. This is known as Divergent, which is what the government and everyone who knows of it(which isn't many people) fear it and want to destroy them. Tris is warned to hide this, and on Choosing Day, she chooses the Dauntless faction. She meets Four, a mysterious and attractive training instructor, and she falls for him. They find out one of the factions wants control, and somehow they must stop them before the factions are destroyed. 

 

Book trilogy: The books are fairly well written, and are definitely written for a teenage audience. The two sequels aren't as good as the first, and can be slow moving if you don't like long moves. The characters are realistic and likable(except the jerks, obviously), and have well written personalities. I would read the books before watching the movie. 

 

Divergent Movie: Overall, there isn't much that I disliked about the movie. It stayed fairly true to the books, but it did leave out a few key points and characters. I thought the acting was great, but for a few characters, I didn't like their appearances(Will, Peter, and Four's father) I would recommend watching it though, as long as you are old enough. Check with your parents. 

 

Overall: (bad, poor, okay, good, great)

Book Series: Good

Movie: Good
