My dog suddenly is terrified to come into our bedroom.  She always just runs right in and uses the rug to jump onto the bed (We've got polished concrete floors).

Suddenly, yesterday - and for no apparent reason, she freezes at the door way.  Looks terribly scared and will not come in no matter how much the girlfriend and I try to call her.

So, I did what any dog owner would do - I got dog treats and tried to lure her into the room with them.  She was going nuts all the way from the kitchen to the bedroom door but then froze and would NOT enter despite dog treats.

After 3 minutes of pleading with her - she turned to her left, scurried down the wall (along the t.v. stand), turned right at the wall with the windows on it, then scurried over to the bed and jumped up from the opposite corner - a much longer route - and she was terrified the whole time.  I again note that she has to use the rug ot jump onto the bed since the floors give her no traction.

Here's a little map of the room to outline what I just described:

Let me know if any of that doesn't make sense.

I'm not saying there's ghosts or anything like that - but I'm completely baffled as to why she would all of the sudden be terrified to enter the room.  She has no problem leaving the room and is fine and wants to stay and hang out once she makes it to the bed.

Any ideas?

Here's a picture:

It's only the older one (the black one - Emerson) - the puppy (Dante) is completely fine and normal and will go anywhere without freaking out.

Anyone's pets ever do anything weird like that?  If she's still doing it in a day or two I'm thinking of calling the vet - but I have no idea what they'd possibly say beyond telling me to call the ghostbusters...

Just heard that Yassr Arafat has died.

Waiting for someone to report it at rebelscum.

EDIT:  Now the hospital is denying this.  We'll see...

EDIT 2:  Added Bob Hope.

Oh yes, my bad - Keiko was the famous whale - snowflake was the famous gorilla.

Glenn Quinn added.

Famous albino gorilla Keiko added

Evidence that DarkKanos reads the Jedi Defender Forums.

Award Winning Composter Jerry Goldsmith dies..


All links should be correct now - if you spot an error or a missing one let me know.

Also just added Richard Harris - reported by Boba_Binks.

Holy crap that's a serious extended edition.

I don't upgrade movies that i already own unless there's a substantial change - that would qualify.

As for yesterday....Picked up:

Pirates of the Carribean 3 disc set - nothing too exciting on the extra disc...some behind the scenes and some documentaries.  I usually only get excited about deleted scenes and/or extended cuts but I didn't pick up this movie before and figured now was as good a time as any...more for the girlfriend than me though...

Also picked up:

Dr. Strangelove 40th anniversary edition
Ali-G - In Da House

Tomorrow at lunch I'm going to try to grab the nice version of Seven and trade in my old one since it's cheap at best buy this week for reward zone folks... then Friday is Shrek 2.

8184 the interest of making this a true archive of celebrity passing.

What, you mean like this one Rob?

The Official R.I.P. Archive   ;)


Well, like that one - but better because it is wholly dependent on rebelscum members and hinges on which one posts it first.  I'm starting to think that JD regulars should be excluded from the list for any celebrity deaths they post from here on forward since the fun goes out the window if you know about this thread.

There's also the predominant factor that Darth Big Boy is pulling down about 50% of these - it's really to see whether or not he gets there first.

Superior to that other thread in most ways.

whoo hoo!  Found another one from the D.B.B. himself - R&B Artist John Whitehead Shot Dead - added.

Also added Johnny Ramone - posted first by lady jaye.

Also added John Henry Williams, son of Ted Williams - brought to you by Chewbacca.

Also added Buddy Ebsen - reported by Ralph_Wiggum.

Also added Gregory Hines - shared by Force Guy.

Will finish tomorrow.

Searching for the links I found another one.

8/20/04 - Durge reported on Elmer Bernstein's passing.  I'm pretty sure it wasn't in the list until now.

Yep - I was just coming in here to add that one...

Athough I find it a lot less funny than some of the celebrity deaths - I'm still disappointed that D.B.B. wasn't first.

Adding now...

I'm also going to take a little while this afternoon to add links to the bold names of the threads started by others - in the interest of making this a true archive of celebrity passing.

Gotta love it when the top 3 performers on my team - Drew Brees, Mushin Muhammad, and Lamont Jordan - are all on my bench. Fire the coach, dammit!!

Hell, I'd nominate him for coach of the year!

Yeah, you should, because if that stupid coach would have started those 3 players, my team would have actually won the game.

Yeah but if we're playing that game, I'd have had an extra 13 points if I'd just started Keyshawn Johnson over Donald Driver - so I'd have still won.

Think it's time to bench the QBs in Miami and Oakland.  Just for a week.  Please.

I offered you up the Miami QB in trade for what it's worth...
