At the world headquarters (main offices) of ESL Podcast, there was recently a fierce (very aggressive; with strong emotions) disagreement about a very important issue. I emailed Jeff a story with photos about a self-proclaimed (saying about itself, actually its owner saying about it) cutest dog in the world. When we both looked at the pictures, we had very different reactions. One of us agreed that it was a very cute dog and the other said that the dog is “butt-ugly.”
Butt-ugly is an informal insult used for something we think is very unattractive, extremely ugly, so ugly that it looks like a butt (the part of the body that we sit on). While this is not a vulgar (offensive) term, it’s not a term you want to use with your mother or boss.
Since we have such different opinions about this dog, I thought I’d ask you. The name of this dog is “Boo” (the sound ghosts and people make when they want to scare someone). You can see pictures of Boo here and see a video of him here. Tell us what you think.
By the way, here is a list of the most common pets in the United States.
Do you have a pet? Other than dogs and cats, what types of pets are popular in other countries? Have you heard of or had any unusual pets?
Canadian Pharmacists Association
The Canadian Pharmacists Association, previously known as the Canadian Pharmaceutical Association, was founded in 1907 in Toronto, Ontario. CPhA is the national voice of Pharmacists in Canada, representing pharmacists practising in various fields of pharmacy in community, hospital, academia, government and corporate settings, plus pharmacy students. Its mission is advancing the health and well-being of Canadians through excellence in pharmacist care. In 2014 CPhA adopted a new governance and membership model, most provincial pharmacy advocacy associations (PPAs) and select national pharmacist associations (NPAs) have become Organizational Members of CPhA. Their individual pharmacist and pharmacy student members are now CPhA Associates. The CPhA Board of Directors is made up of representatives appointed by each Organizational Member. The Board of Directors is responsible for setting the broad direction of the association.
