The drugs wore off - puppy fashion statement

Someone suggested tshirts instead of the cones of shame (which are painful after they bump into you time after time after time). They work pretty well. You have to gather up their 'skirts' with a rubber band when they go outside. Abby's shirt says 'Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally' - extra points to the first one to know this phrase.

Note of concern - at 8 months of age, Tar now weighs 101 lbs.

pemdas!!!!! the mnemonic for the order of operations. i think it's okay because it does not reinforce the left to right rule.

i'm behind in reading- i just found out there was a thing with their operations. hope everything gets back to demon-puppy normal soon.

Not a clue. So I cheated and read Mrs A's answer. Still don't have a clue.
101 pounds? Good greif. What are you feeding him?

It is a memory device for the order of operations in an equation. I've tutored as far as sophomore math and I still write this out for the kids (and ME!)
It stands for Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication, Division, Addition, Subtraction.

We feed Tar and Abby Science Diet, large breed puppy food.

Order of operations: parentheses, exponents, multiplication, division, addition, subtraction. Oh, now I see it's been answered. Late again!
