Wink Undecided? Let the Dog pick it!! Here's how....

There are so many things to decide when planing a Disney Vacation. People agonize over important, life changing decisions like which resort is best for me or should we take the kids to Victoria and Albert's?

I should know. I USED to be that Dis'er!

Instead of typing up posts asking others to do the thinking for us, my family has come up with an innovative and fail proof system. We ask the dog. Yes, that's right. We ask the dog to decide. Here's how.

First we put all the choices on post it notes, with the sticky side facing up. Since the dog can't read (still!!) we know he won't be biased and pick the one that he likes (ASMO, 101 Dalmatians section is a favorite!).

We distribute the post it notes on the floor and we unleash the hound. The first one he touches with his nose wins. Bonus points are awarded if the post it note sticks to his nose!

Much howling ensues as cries of "The Dog Cheated!!" emanate from the jilted losers but we all know the truth. This contest was fair and square and that liverwurst Mom rubbed all over her post it note choice in no way influenced the dog.

So the next time you find yourself on the fence with a resort location or a restaurant choice think of using the "Dog Method". It saves a lot of thinking on your part and you can always blame the dog if the decision doesn't work out.

In my house the dog frequently decides important matters like who gets the biggest slice of an unevenly sliced pizza and who gets to ride shotgun with Mom on a road trip. Countless wars and international skirmishes have been avoided using the "Dog Method". Try it for your WDW vacation decisions today!

Poor Dog! I bet a liberal amount of liverwurst was spread on BC sticky note.

I bet the dog has been blamed for all sorts of poor choices over the years. One day you'll set him loose and he'll be like "no way, I don't wanna get involved in this anymore!"
