Wolves to Dogs: How Did Wolves Become Dogs?

When you hear the word wolf, you think of this:

But when you hear the word dog, you think of this:

(Ok, maybe you don’t think of fruit…)

But do you really think of wolves being dogs, or dogs being wolves? No, you don’t! Uh… right?

But I heard a story… and you will soon too…

Source https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caveman

These cavemen used to be scared of wolves. But wolves wanted something from humans a lot!

Garbage!

Garbage. From humans. So humans practically made a deal with these fuzzy four legged creatures…

“You protect us, howl at bears, alert us when danger comes, and you can have alllll the garbage you want!” said the cavemen.

“Uh… ruff?” said the wolves.

(Yeah, pretty pathetic right?)

(Please see video ๐Ÿ˜‹)

That’s what it looks like in my head. 100%!

Thanks for watching (sorry, habit from my Youtube channel Gussie Goop…link here —> https://youtu.be/4yIB1pWZYX8 )

But thanks for… reading? I’m not sure. Anyway, gotta go, so bye!

Do You Notice Something Different??

Hello! Before I jump into Do You Notice Something Different?? I thought I’d take some time to talk about the schedule.

I know my blogposts have been crazy (not on time), and it’s because of a good reason.

We Went To Ireland ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช

La Mia Familia (my family) moved to an old, Irish โ˜˜๏ธ schoolhouse for the month of June!! (I will write a blog about that later so I can go into more details ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€.) Plus, I’ve been super busy. So, I’m sorry about the schedule.

So, Without Further Ado….

Do You Notice Something Different??

Do you notice something something different?

Maybe this will help….

Did you get it? I bet you did.

That’s all for now, my lovely fans!

I bid you… Farewell ๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿฅณ๐ŸŒน๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿฅจ๐Ÿฅ“๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿพโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿฅ‡๐Ÿฅˆ๐Ÿฅ‰๐Ÿ—ฟ๐ŸŸ๐ŸŽก๐Ÿ’‰โš—๏ธ๐Ÿ”ฌ๐Ÿฎ๐ŸŽ๐Ÿงงโœ‚๏ธ๐Ÿ“โœ๏ธ๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ’“โฃ๏ธ๐Ÿ’›โ˜ฎ๏ธ๐Ÿ”ฑโšœ๏ธโ•๐Ÿšธ1๏ธโƒฃ2๏ธโƒฃ3๏ธโƒฃ4๏ธโƒฃ๐ŸŽต๐ŸŽถยฉ๏ธ๐Ÿ’ฑโžฐ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ••๐Ÿ•š๐Ÿ• ๐Ÿ”Š๐Ÿ’ฌ๐Ÿ””๐Ÿ”•

Italian Explorers ๐Ÿงญ!!!!

Hi!

I know it is odd that a blogpost didn’t come out on Saturday. But la mia famiglia (my family) went on a trip. A four day, three night trip!

We live in Rovigo, Italy. We wanted to move once our avvocato (lawyer) gave us the all clear to leave. Our lawyer helping us with our dual Italian citizenship is in Rovigo, so it was convenient that we live in Rovigo too.

We decided we could go for a few days to explore the other amazing cities and ancient landmarks!

So now, I will explain the entire trip as quickly as I can, so this blog doesn’t get boring ๐Ÿ˜‰.

But first, we went to a car rental agency, and picked up a white Fiat.

There is my mom from globalkristen.com and my dad from STEAMTeam5!

Here are the links: STEAMTeam5 and GlobalKristen

First up is…. Siena!!!

We went to Siena, but not to sleep. After we looked around the city, we realized it was a little crowded at this time of year. We didn’t want to be here if it had so many tourists sometimes. We still explored a little, then we hit the road again!

Now, we have…. Montepulciano!!!

Montepulciano (in Tuscany) was the first place we went to sleep. My mom and I had a little trouble figuring out who got the bed in the main room ๐Ÿคช!

We explored and liked it a lot.

Hereโ€™s me next to a bunch of pots with cactus-y things in them!

It was beautiful! We didn’t want to live there either because it was extra small and super touristy. We heard so many others speaking English.

Next up is…. Orvieto!!!!

If you paid extra good attention when you read, Orvieto “!!!!” Instead of Orvieto “!!!” good job! We decided something about the place… and you will have to stick around to see what we decided!

Pizza…. I love pizza ๐Ÿ•!

They had an awesome wooden horse!

I loved the pretty view!

Probably the most friendly cat Iโ€™ve ever seen at a cafรจ!

The Dโ€™uomo, an old, old, old, old, old castle!

And finally… Ascoli Piceno!!!

They had an old-timey event, and I got my picture taken with old-timey people!!!

As I promised

We decided that we loved Orvieto (all three of us) and wanted to move there! Again, we will when we can!

Now that I’ve talked about all this pure awesomeness, I bid you farewell! (That’s my old-timey salute!)

So,

I bid you farewell!

A New Schedule!

Hi!

I’ve decided to keep my blog consistently running!

So, starting from today, I will be posting a new blog for you every week on Fridays and Tuesdays! Which means my next blog will be next week.

Keep in mind, this blog right now, the one telling you my new schedule, is not included in the schedule.

Also, I will be posting at 10:00 am New York time ๐Ÿ™. I’m sorry if it doesn’t fit your schedule, but you can always check it out later!

If something isnโ€™t right about this pic to you, it may be my new glasses chains โ›“!

So, I’ll see you on Friday at 10:00 am New York time!

Bye!

Rovigo, Italy! ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น

This blogpost is unlike any other blogpost I’ve written! It’s not a story, but a facts blogpost. If you don’t care for it, I’ll tell you now it is the only one of its kind for now!

Fact 1

You know the things you wipe your mouth with after eating? Yes, napkins. The napkins come out of a dispenser in most cafรจs in Rovigo (and maybe all of Italy?) like at In-‘n’-Out Burger. But, the napkins (almost everywhere I’ve been to) are crazy! They feel like rough sketch paper! My mother and I joke about the napkins.

“Hey, here’s some sandpaper to wipe your mouth!” I’d say.

“Haha, thank you!” My mom would reply.

Fact 2

If you visit Rovigo, Italy, visit Girasole, a pizza restaurant! The first night I was in Italy with my mom and dad, my mom had gone looking for Girasole, which she had seen on Google Maps.

Fact 3

There are sooo many yummy pizza shops around Rovigo!

Rovigo is the first place I’ve been to in Italy. We are trying to get Italian Citizenship, and since we already have American citizenship, Italian citizenship will make us Dual Citizens! And our avvocato (lawyer in Italian) is in Rovigo. So we came to him.

FYI the Lawyer part and Yummy pizza part are attached, I didn’t forget to say fact four.

This blogpost was super short, so a new one is on the way!

Bye all!

FYI I did cut my hair, but the huge change is just my sloppy pigtails!

Bats ๐Ÿฆ‡!!! Post for Homeschoolers!

Baby vampire bat! (Image credit: hairyleggedvampire.jpg)

1. All bats are mammals.

2. Bats are nocturnal, a word that means sleep at day, and are awake at night!

3. Bats can fly better than birds ๐Ÿฆ, because of their long spread-out digits covered with a thin membrane! The membrane in the wings is called patagium.

4. Bats have sort of a bad reputation to some people. It would mean a lot to me if you told your friends about these facts: it could change their minds!

5. Bats urinate and defecate while in flight, which means they pee and poo ๐Ÿ’ฉ in flight! ๐Ÿคข

6. This pic is going to be of a vampire bat! No, don’t be afraid! The mini blood-suckers are not everywhere!! They are just in some places. Now, for the picture!

Image credit: http://animalplanetsthemostextreme.wikia.com/wiki/Vampire_Bat

Many peeps hate (and maybe even are scared of) bats. But, hopefully, this blogpost will change the minds of bat haters and people scared of bats. Just remember one thing: don’t be afraid of them all! If a vampire bat saw this:

They would say:

Insects!

Let me tell you a story…

A while ago, we were in the Cotswolds housesitting. (See my blog about the Cotswolds.) We looked after a cat. And the cat was indoor-outdoor. One night, the cat brought my dad a surprise… a not-at-all bloody, dead bat!

The next morning, I awoke to instantly inspect it, with a magnifying glass ๐Ÿ”!

Dead bat being VERY closely inspected

the end of the story

This blogpost was really fun, and it took me a while so I hope you liked it!

See ‘ya, Bye ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป!
