Now showing on the Nat. Geographic Channel: The Charisma Dog Trainer!
Having little Baby Sunshine around means that I quite often find myself with a little baby that is either, crying, sleeping, vomiting or just generally flailing around for no apparent reason, on my chest. This means that my movement gets severely limited and sitting in the sofa in the living room with just enough room to manoeuvre the remote control to the tv.
Now, I think it's more than clear to anyone who's spent any time in Japan that daytime tv on weekends is less than great here in Japan. Thankfully we have cable which means that I usually first try to check out the History Channel, Discovery Channel or National Geographic in hopes of some exciting documentary about WW2 or big guns and tanks.
However, even those channels doesn't always serve their purpose, lately there's been too much ancient Egypt and about the Universe for me on the first two channels. NGC on the other hand seem to have dedicated their full schedule now to repeat airings of "The Dog Whisperer" which for some reason has gotten the Japanese name "The Charisma Dog Trainer"... I like the kinda "A Queer Eye for your Dog" vibe that this show has going (but was shocked to see his wife appear in an episode...)
Well, it could be worse I guess and if you want me to come and train your dog, at least I'm getting educated...
