     Thankfully, my dog prefers the sweet 100's and leaves the full sized ones alone.

     I don’t think he eats them off the plants. The funny thing is, his whole mission in life is to scavenge, whether it’s  tomatoes, chicken and duck eggs, anything really, he is totally slick about it like we don’t know what he’s up too.  That said he did not perceive the drone as a threat and carried on like no one was watching.

    Is there a way to play the video on your TV, and have him watch?  I'm not sure if he'll recognize himself; its fun to see how some animals recognize themselves in a monitor, or a mirror.  Some pose, some shy away, some bark, some look behind the mirror, etc.  No idea what your boxer will do (and if he lunges and kills your drone the next day, I'm not responsible :tongue:)  
    When I brought my two Corgi pups home years ago, they started munching the flower in my backyard (lillies? they came back every year on their own).  I bought a spray from Pets-R-Us that was supposed to repel the dogs; instead they would just slowly lick the spray off.  Fail.

    Liquid crab boil is a good compromise between smelling good to humans and being absolutely repulsive to animals.  It's saved many a table leg and shoe.

    I had the same happen with a boxer mix and cayenne. I thought I had the chewing problem solved, but I ended up with a dog that dripped slobber for a week.

    We had a Border Collie that would pick and eat tomatoes but he liked the rotten ones.

    I also had burgers, steak, brats, hotdogs, mushrooms, and stuffed cuban pickles on the smoker for neighborhood National Night Out. I remembered a picture of my drumsticks but I completely forgot about taking a picture of anything cooked earlier. 
    spot on and did you foil the bones @ all? they look pristine

    This was my first go at lollipops. Lots of work for still being a drumstick in the end  ;) I think this is the way to go in my opinion when doing drumsticks. That way you can remove all the cartilage prior and not ruin the experience of eating a drumstick. 

    I foiled up until saucing. Time consuming but kind of a fun cook.

    im tending to believe its best to do what you are doing than to take the doctors advice and get on the med.  they will not let you off it.  im almost on nothing right now and my running ave for the year is down to 115/71 ,was 185/107 two years back. lost a bunch of weight and started eating better. stopped taking ibuprofen like candy and i believe that was the source of most of the problem. keep up the good work

    For most people with high BP, cholesterol or blood sugar issues / pre-diabetes the meds are treating the symptom, not the cause. As you get older you have a choice to be more healthy and tip the odds in your favour for a longer and more active life. Carry on regardless and, even with meds, the odds are against you.

    bp meds are a gateway drug for the docs, they get you on that then look for more things, soon you are getting a bigger pill box, more blood tests, getting specialists involved.........

    Kerching. In the US. Here it costs the system money, so less pressure to simply medicate, but they still do it as an easy fix.

    Beauty. I'm too lazy to clean the bones  :)
    However, I cut the bottom flat and end up with OCD instead of drunken lollipops  ;)  You know I'm messing with you.
