RAISING CANES CHICKEN FINGERS FRANCHISE IN THE MISSISSIPPI GULF COAST BILOXI AREA

Objective

This Raising Canes Chicken Fingers franchise would strive to fit the hungry needs of the nearby patrons at the targeted area of Biloxi near Biloxi Regional Hospital and Casinos. While doing this Raising Canes would be expected to give superior service to customers, fair prices, and to be involved in the community in a positive way. Providing a fun, exciting, challenging world career with tremendous growth potential to all employees.

Company History

The chicken fingers have been served in the deep south states of Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana for many years, but not as the only item on the menu. The founder of the Raising Canes Chicken Fingers, Todd Graves, was a business student at Louisiana State University. During Graves’ college days, he learned how to cook chicken fingers and developed a wonderful sauce to complement the taste (Cater III, J., & Chadwick, Ken). In college course he was told by one of his professors, after submitting his business idea for what would be later be named Raising Canes, he was told that the business proposal would not work and gave him a very low C grade for the class (http://www.rasingcanes.com).

Graves went to financial institutions and other private investors with his business plan. Like his professor, they also told him the plan would not work saying “a restaurant serving only chicken finger meals will never make it” and “You have no prior restaurant experience and no money to invest in the business yourself… it won’t work” (http://www.rasingcanes.com). Graves then began working long hours at jobs where he was a boilermaker and a commercial Alaskan sockeye fisherman. After saving enough money, Graves started his first Raising Canes Chicken Fingers restaurant in 1996 located in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, just outside the entrance to the Louisiana State University campus. Graves intended on naming the business sockeye after all the fish he caught in Alaska; but a friend suggested he name the franchise after his beloved yellow lab Raising Cane, it stuck. The Raising Canes logo was an imitation of an old bakery mural logo found painted on a wall while renovating the building. Graves decided to leave the mural visible and untouched on the wall (Cater III, J., & Chadwick, Ken). The first raising cane restaurant is to referred to the as the “Mother Ship” by Graves (http://www.rasingcanes.com).

Graves business plan was simple but unique on the amount of perfection needed to make the product to be a complete success. The menu is streamlined and made up of chicken fingers, Canes sauce, french fries, Texas toast, coleslaw, and beverages. Graves did this by having a single minded perseverance, that is characterized by the Raising Cane‘s motto “ONE LOVE” (Cater III, J., & Chadwick, Ken). Not to “cut corners” or clutter the menu with new products that do not fit the core menu offering. Graves does this by following an intense guideline that their chicken is fresh, never frozen. Raising Canes Chicken fingers has set the standards that are unmatched by any competition in the industry (http://www.rasingcanes.com).

Business Concept

Raising Canes goal is to provide fresh, never frozen chicken, friendly & fast service, and a clean dining environment (http://www.rasingcanes.com).

Business Cost

The total start-up investment cost of the business would be approximately $2.5 million dollars in initial funds. The cost of land would be approximately $1 million dollars. This cost of land price is comparable to other Raising Canes around the country. There are several different locations that could be utilized in the area. The size of land increases the further north the location is from the Gulf Coast. This would provide many options to make the owner and franchisors content. The cost of construction would be approximately $1 million dollars with four layouts to chose from. The cost for all the materials and equipment inside the business would be approximately $500,000 dollars. The franchise fee is $45,000 dollars and five percent of total profit of sales from the business (Tuennerman. P, October 13, 2011). The normal cost to train someone effectively is approximately $1,500 dollars. If a poor job is done on the training of management and employees, time and money will be wasted training others (Olds. A, October 11, 2011)

Business Location

The location for a Raising Canes is critical to the financial success of the franchise. Being near a highly traveled roadway and having easy access to that roadway is necessary. The business being visible from highly traveled roadways is also preferred. Several other Raising Canes franchises have decided to also build near major Universities attracting hungry students to their location (http://www.rasingcanes.com). The Mississippi Gulf Coast area lacks large college universities, making that not a option. The location that suites this is the Biloxi area near Biloxi Regional hospital and casinos. The roadway of choice would be Caillavet Street north of Highway 90 and south of Bayview Avenue which encompasses most of Caillavet Street. This location provides no direct competitors in the near by area. Raising Canes franchise is very adamant about not placing a new location near a direct competitor (Olds. A, October 11, 2011). The pros to the area of choice is the expectation that many hungry travelers frequent this area. It is located near a major interstate and along the Gulf Coast beaches. Surrounded by many casinos and local business, it may open opportunity for those individuals to enjoy a fresh, never frozen meal, quickly. Biloxi Regional Medical Center may also provide a large amount of customers. Employees who are tiresome of the food provided at the hospital will be an easy market. The guests who are visiting loved ones may also want to get away from the environment of the hospital and enjoy a quickly prepared meal and to sit and talk with their group. The surrounding area provides minimum competition versus our quality fast food concept, leaving a strong portion of the market left to target.

Casino guest who are visiting the area who feel limited to the high cost and low in quality food choices would also provide a great market. Guests who don’t want to eat at a buffet style dining or a high class dining experience and want a good meal would be targeted. During the day the meals at the casino change frequently we would provide a constant service ready when they see fit. Sunday through Thursday most of the surrounding casino close early. The casinos limit their choices and continue with the high cost foods. The surrounding area provides very limited late night dining options. This will provide a time to stay open late to be able lure those customers into our doors and make them life long customers.

There are residents that frequent the area to travel to everyday locations. A digital sign is needed to be able to easily be read from the roadway by passing customers. The digital sign can be used to update the public on what we are doing inside the four walls of the business and outside. The sign should not be distracting to the passers bys.

The Product

The secret behind Graves business plan is a simple focused goal on a perfected food product. The product is directed towards a customer who will pay a slight increase in cost for food to receive great quality fast food. The chicken is purchased from Tyson’s Chicken Company and is delivered fresh three days a week. The bread is delivered by Flower Food Company five days a week and cooked fresh daily and brushed with butter (Olds. A, October 11, 2011). The Canes sauce is a secret recipe that Graves came up with while attending college and he does not want the recipe made public. The secret sauce is what helps drive customers into the doors of Raising Canes, its unique flavor and quality is not matched at any other fast food level (http://www.rasingcanes.com). The cooking oil for the chicken fingers is a soybean and canola mix. Canes soybean and canola mix oil is a healthy choice. Cane will not use any types of peanut oils to ensure people with an allergy to peanuts are not effected. This oil is changes twice daily to ensure quality of taste (Olds. A, October 11, 2011).

The Canes “One Love” attitude toward cooking great chicken fingers and its pleasant atmosphere is a product of its own. To speed up services, the cook keeps a close eye on every guest that enters the door of the restaurant. Each time a guest enters the cook immediately drops chicken fingers in the fryer to be cooked. Attention to detail does not stop at the food. Cane restaurants are employed with an upbeat crew who have fun at what they do during work hours. The standards for the working area and dining atmosphere is attempted to be done at an above standards level (Olds. A, October 11, 2011).

With all of the combos consisting of at least chicken fingers this is an effective but simple way to produce fresh chicken finger meals and a continued quick service. The simple menu consist of five main ingredients. The simplicity of the menu is hard to match by any other contending fast food restaurants. Those that do contend with the simplicity of the product cannot match the quality. This provides a enormous advantage to attract consumers (http://www.rasingcanes.com).

The Menu

The Raising Canes menu consists of five combo meals and a child combo:

Childs Combo (with two chicken fingers, french fries, one Canes sauce, 12oz drink, and a prize),
3 Finger Combo (three chicken fingers, french fries, 1 Canes sauce, Texas toast, and a regular 21oz drink ),
The Box Combo (four chicken fingers, french fries, coleslaw, 2 Canes sauce, Texas toast, and regular 21oz drink ),
The Caniac combo (six chicken fingers, french fries, coleslaw, two Canes sauce, Texas toast, and a large 32oz drink)
The Sandwich (three chicken fingers, Canes sauce, lettuce, Kaiser roll, french fries, and regular 21oz drink ).
Tailgate Boxes with 25, 50, 75, and 100 chickens fingers boxes with Cane Sauce
Coca-Cola fountain drink beverages are offered in three sizes along with, ice tea, and seasonal fresh lemonade.
There are T-shirts and Base Ball hats in a variety of colors for sale for the “Caniac” (http://www.rasingcanes.com).

Dining Atmosphere

Managements desire to create a fun work environment for their employees to work and for them to be able to feel passionate at what they are doing. In tradition with Louisiana Mardi Gras tradition, employees at Raising Canes are called crew members. Crew members are trained to treat the customers courteously in a party like atmosphere. With the origins of Raising Cane coming from a college town it specializes in late night dining (Cater III, J., & Chadwick, Ken). A large padded sectional seating area is commonly placed in front of the counter where orders are taken. This provides a place for people to relax and socialize while waiting on their food. The walls of the restaurant are covered with Raising Canes related articles, posters related to the surrounding area, and new and old memorabilia. Guest are greeted while entering the door with a polite shut from employees “Hi welcome to Raising Canes” (Olds. A, October 11, 2011).

Interaction with the Community

Raising Canes believes that the way the business should interact with the community is in a positive way. Each franchise is required to donate at least 1.5 percent of its gross sales to charitable cause in the community. Raising Canes only donates to no kill animal shelters due to the company’s logo close connection with animals. All of the donations are carefully analyzed to ensure there are no obvious conflicts with the community. Raising Canes has donated large sums of money to several places to help for or start a dog park in their communities. Coat and food drives are located at Raising Canes restaurants for the Community. Select nights are scheduled for local schools to raise money by every person who mentions that schools name a percent of that sale goes directly to that school as a donation.

After hurricane Katrina Raising Canes was the first new construction in the New Orleans area after Hurricane Katrina (Cater III, J., & Chadwick, Ken). This store had great success after opening and filled the nearby parking lots with customers. This brought the areas businesses hope continuing business. Raising Canes cares about its community and will not hesitate to shut down its store so its employee have sufficient time to evacuate the area (Cater III, J., & Chadwick, Ken).

A new way of giving back to the community would be a summer reading program for children. This would ensure that students continued the education process through out the summer. Each student that visits Raising Canes would be given a form to take home. On this form children would need to name ten books that they have read during the summer break. Once the form is completely filled out and a parents signature is present, the child would then receive a free meal. This would be done for children kindergarten to 12th grade and would begin the day school ends through the first day of the following school year

Another way of giving back would be involving the local soup kitchens. Three times a year Raising Canes would donate a meal to a local soup kitchen that feeds the homeless or needy families and individuals on the coast.

Marketing

The general manager is the primary person responsible in providing the correct marketing for the Raising Canes brand. Advertising billboards are commonly used with a picture of the local general mangers on the billboard promoting the brand. Fundraisers with schools are often scheduled on slower business days and for every person who mentions that schools name 15 percent of that sale goes directly to that school fundraiser. School sporting events are targeted, if the sporting event admission ticket is present a special offer is awarded to that customer. A similar strategy is done at Mississippi Surge games awarding the fan for attending the games. A prize package is given to the players of the week at the local high school football team. A shirt with the Raising Canes logo on it given to the player to wear at school and around town with player of the week on it. A hero discount is given to all uniform diners or our military or any type of first responder. All of these marketing ideas are done at low cost to the company but very affective at sending a positive message about the business (Olds. A, October 11, 2011).

The first months of the companies opening is referred to as the honeymoon period for a store. During this time its very important to take advantage of the influx of customers trying the product. The Raising Canes brand recognition is not 100 percent known for great service, but has to be done to encourage repeat customers. Advertising will be done by putting coupons in local newspapers to drive people through the door to take advantage of the grand opening discount (Olds. A, October 11, 2011). While customers are in the business make them more aware of the Canes loyalty programs such as Canes Challenges, Canaic Club, Football Frenzy, Superbowl giveaways and many more.

Proposal Of Simple Additions To Company

A few simple ideas to add to this Raising Canes Chicken Fingers restaurant to meet the needs of the local customers. The simple menu does not provide any deserts to be purchased, leaving customers to go elsewhere to fulfill that want. Selling hand scooped ice cream, which would be built into part of the counter where orders are taken. This would be an ideal location for the ice cream to be viewable by all customers. The frozen yogurt would offer a healthier option for the customer to have for dessert. Both of these are a low cost expense to the franchise. The hot summers on the Biloxi Gulf Coast will encourage customers to purchase the cold desserts. Warm brownies, apple pie, and cherry pie can be sold to go along with the ice cream or frozen yogurt.

Several fast food competitors in the surrounding are have several free activities inside their restaurant to entertain children during a families dining experience. To attract customers who want their children to have a fun meal, this would be helpful advantage. A clean and safe play area is essential for the idea to work. Plastic slides and a fun play area or different free video games for the children to choose from. This will open up the possibility of families becoming repeat customers. It would also encourage the children, twelve and under, to ask adults to dine at a Raising Canes.

Providing a delivery option to businesses and residences in the surrounding area could prove to be profitable. A flat rate delivery charge could be added to each order and if the order amount is high enough for that delivery the delivery rate can be deducted. The guests at the nearby casinos who are unable or don’t want to leave the casino would provide a large market for delivery. The employees and guests at the Biloxi Regional Hospital who are unable to leave. Deliver to residential areas would be possible, but the range would have to be limited. Advertising catering prices to business and group events would provide large profits. This will also provide a way to make contact with some customers that are not familiar with our brand name. This would allow us to employ additional crew members and allow the deliverers to make tip income incentives. Raising Canes does not want to put any crew member in danger therefore strict policies would have to be introduced. No more than twenty five dollars on their person would be allowed. Deliveries to residences would be possible, but deliveries may take place only to businesses or casino due to safety of the delivery person.

Summary

Thank you for allowing me this chance to provide you this Proposal. I am confident that a Raising Canes Chicken Fingers would be very profitable in the Biloxi Gulf Coast area. The location of the business is key to the amount of profit to business makes. This selected area provides a wide range to different customers and what makes this franchise so special it ability fulfill all there wants.

The surrounding area provides very limited to completion by plenty of traffic flow.
The fresh quality fast food from Raising Canes will be to hard match by competitors. With all of these advantages I feel the start of a Raising Canes Chicken Fingers at this location would be very low risk.

Habakuk the Cane King

...Habakuk, the Cane King Introduction Success is a very important measure of an entrepreneur’s achievements and goals. Success can be measured by analysing various factors which could be qualitative and quantitative in nature. This means that defining success encompasses a broad spectrum. For instance, success can be measured by analysing the performance of the business, taking into consideration the expectations of stakeholders with an interest in the business venture, the nature of the expectations and the actual outcomes achieved relative to the expectations of the business venture. Analysing the performance of a venture can be measured for example by looking at the net profit of the business or its revenue and various profitability ratios of the venture. In addition, establishing relationships with others and achieving personal satisfaction are also important factors to consider when measuring the performance of the business. It has been indicated by Charles (2011) that the success of a new venture does indeed include meeting the expectations of interested parties. It has also been found by Charles (2011) that successful ventures are dependent on other factors such as the knowledge and skills of the entrepreneur.

Chick-Fil-a vs. Raising Canes

...Madison Blankenship English 101-004 Mr. Lyles October 19, 2012 Raising Cane’s Vs. Chick-fil-A Raising Cane’s and Chick-Fill-A are very popular fast food restaurants that both specialize in chicken.  While both specialize in the same type of food, they conduct their businesses differently. Their presentations are similar in some areas and different in others. Kristin Mastre greatly explains that Raising Cane’s and Chick-fil-A can be easily compared through their environment, costs, nutrition, and variety in her article,“Throwdown! Chick-fil-A versus Raising Cane’s.” (par. 1). The environments of each restaurant provide an atmosphere that makes the customer want to return. Raising Cane’s has a very fun type of decoration using movie posters, band posters, and sports team decoration. It uses these posters to attract people of all ages to eat there. Raising Cane’s also allows their employees to show team spirit for sports’ teams around the area (Feasting Fort Collins, par. 7). This atmosphere makes the restaurant a perfect place to be after football games. Chick-fil-A has a family oriented environment. It has children play places, and very polite service. Chick-fil-A employees will always ask, “How they may serve you?” and answer the customer’s “Thank you” with “My pleasure.” The customer service creates an atmosphere so the customer feels that he or she is not actually in a fast food restaurant (Feasting Fort Collins, par. 5). Both restaurants provide outstanding......

Fund Raising

Maintaining enough funds for the operations of organizations is a challenge for the group as a whole. Most of organizations suffer from this problem, even in the researchers’ organization and the worst thing is organizations don’t even know where their funds were allocated. In this regard, the researchers would like to come up with an effective fund raising activity that will be used by the researcher’s organization and also might be of help to other organizations in maintaining funds for the operations of the organization. The researchers would also like to study this topic to identify sound strategies that would be useful in order to finance future projects. Furthermore, the researchers would like to emphasize through this research paper the importance of the manpower or the human resources in having effective fund raising activities. It is observed in most of organizations that people who occupy the top position are almost the same people who are working to make the organization productive which is wrong. All of the members and officials of an organization are all responsible in the day-to-day activities. This research paper will identify who among the members of the organization should be responsible in handling the fund raising activities. This research paper will also tackle the......

...WHAT EFFECTS ARE CANE TOADS PRODUCING TOWARDS THE SUSTAINABILTY OF ECOSYSTEMS AND THE SURVIVAL OF NATIVE SPECIES Chelcy Jordan SUST 1000 October 10 2012 The introduction of invasive species can often lead to unpredictable alterations and a shift within natural ecosystems. Cane toads were originally introduced to Australia in 1935. They were brought into Australia to prey on specific pests that were attacking sugar cane plants. Cane toads are highly adaptive and can easily adjust to climate changes and feeding grounds. The growth of reproduction in cane toads has formed a species invasion on the habitat of native animals. Immense competition and a shift in ecosystems are a result of their significant growth rate. What effects are cane toads producing towards the sustainability of ecosystems and the survival of native species? Many animals, and plant species have been either finding new ways to adjust to changes caused by the introduction of cane toads. Cane toads have impacted natural ecosystems so drastically that they have left a strenuous effect on native species ability to maintain their own survival. This is crucial when looking at the effects cane toads have on sustaining plant and animal life within ecosystems. Dramatic changes in an ecosystem could potentially fail due to inadequate nutrients and energy distribution. It is important to examine ways in which cane toads affect ecosystems so environmentalists can predict potential negative shifts and try to......

Raising Troops

...Raising Troops Code of the Samurai by Taira Shigesuke and The Methods of the Ssu-Ma (author unknown) both focus a lot on a sort of “code” for warriors during warfare. My question is what is the best way to raise troops? These two readings explain different answers to my question, but to answer it myself I would say the best way to raise troops would be to not focus solely on things such as strength or marksmanship, but to focus also on the mindset of a troop and how to pull through in times of difficulty and how to respect warfare and their unit and how to face fear and overcome obstacles. Taira Shigesuke writes about how, first and foremost, a warrior should consider it his first concern to keep death in mind at all times. But you don’t just have a duty to the military; you have to fulfill your loyalty to your family as well. Unlike the warrior ways described in the Ssu-Ma, Samurai warriors focused day and night on their duties as a warrior, whether they were a farmer, or merchant, etc. They always carried a sword with them as to always be prepared and keep death in mind at all times. Education was not important early on, and even 12 and 13 year olds were learning martial arts instead of focusing on becoming literate. Their sole focus was the way of a warrior. Now, however, those born in the present era focus on literature and reading and writing from the time they are seven or eight in times of peace. A big difference between the Ssu-Ma and the code of the Samurai is...

Sugar Cane

...Sugar Cane Today, sugar cane has many industrial uses and is one of the most widely used and cheapest domestic products Sugarcane is a tropical, perennial grass that forms lateral shoots at the base to produce multiple stems, typically three to four meters high and about five centimeters in diameter. Sugar cane probably originated in the island of New Guinea. Its cultivation spread along human migration routes to South-East Asia, India and to Fiji and Hawaii in 500-1100 AD. Sugarcane is the world's largest crop. In 2010, FAO estimates it was cultivated on about 23.8 million hectares, in more than 90 countries, with a worldwide harvest of 1.69 billion tonnes. Brazil was the largest producer of sugar cane in the world. The next three major producers, in decreasing amounts of production, is India, China, and Thailand Sugar is an addictive food, not only in humans but also in dogs and pigs and other animals with simple stomachs.

Raising Children

...While on a 4 hr. lunch break with coworkers I recently had a discussion about the differences in raising our children. It amazed me on how so many of us differ in our opinions on parenthood. Out of four parents we all had a different approach on what we expected of our teenaged kids. One coworker in the group said she encourage her kids to never move away. She would rather have them close to her at home while going to school and working. Another coworker said she feels her kid’s should concentrate on Academics only. She said it is a burden financially but it’s an investment in her kid’s future. A single father in our group strongly encourages his son to focus on sports scholarships. I listen intently to each parent argue their values and views on parenthood. I ask them if their own upbringing had any effect on their decision on how to raise kids. The response was amazing. Each coworker did not have the privilege, opportunity, or choice. They either had to work at an early age to help with household expenses or drop out of school due to lack of money. I understood the compassion behind the opinions of each. I told them I encourage my kids to be independent, and have a balance of both education and decision making. But focus on education. I also explain to them my kids had jobs at the age of 16, and went on to be successful in the Military and other endeavors in life. We had a good debate at lunch.

Sugar and Slavery Cane Essay

...because it linked them to all corners of the world, The economy grew with this number of slaves circulating around the globe. The Transatlantic Slave Trade included other trade relationship such as salted cod to Barbados for sugar cane. Traders would go to Virginia for tobacco and would transport the sugar and tobacco to England for English clothes, guns, and cash. Then the New World traders would take the guns and clothes and give them to African chiefs for children, men and woman. Around the 1700’s New World settlers would reach Africa and buy adult Africans for 110- 130 gallons of rum (West). Eventually the slave trade became a crucial part of the economics in Rhode Island because it had many ports. The trade made some people wealthy and also made a numerous amount of jobs for others. For example, more dock loaders were needed to import slaves and other trades like sugar, clothes and other items. Sugar became a huge economic booster when it reached the New World (West). European and other settlers brought methods of harvesting and growing sugar cane, which helped grow crops. After the sugar crystals could not be refined anymore it became molasses that was also used for trade. Slaves would plant about 7,000 pieces to produce one acre of sugar cane. This shows that the slaves were used to harvest crops and that many people were employed on the backs of the slaves in related industries. Africans were seen as less than people and more like another species that was......

Children Raising

...Naturally, family is made up of mother, father, and children. Children are supposed to be raised by both parents, and we all accept that father and mother have vital roles in upbringing their children into potential and useful people to contribute to social development. However, it is quite challenging if we want to compare whether mother or father is more important. What if mother is more important, is she has to assume more responsibility, or what if father is, ought he to assume more? On my point of view, in no account should parents assume unequal responsibility due to children development sake, the difficulty of raising children, and family happiness. Whether or not children are nurtured with equal responsibility from mother and father has effect on children’s development throughout their lives. With both cares, children get full experience of live from both mother and father because what father can give to children is different from that of the mother, but it doesn’t mean one is less important than the other. Mother can teach children how to cook, how to sew, or how to deal with household chore while father can teach them how to fish, to be strong, or to protect oneself from any danger. And some circumstances children need advice from father and other circumstances, only mother is more suitable to give advice. On top of that it is also known that with both parents care, children benefit in their braveness. Children will feel confident around the house, at school, or......

...Michelle Jones Dr. Vaughn Composition 1 22 February2016 Raising Kittens Once far, far, far away just outside of Richwoods, Missouri, on our farm, I found and raised two tiny gray kittens. These two kittens were literally on our doorstep, as if the mother knew that we would take them in. They were lost and alone with no mother cat to care for them. No matter how loud they called, their mother just didn't come to their very loud calls. With their eyes still closed and not able to care for themselves we took them in. My family and I named these kittens Jewel and Princess. Taking care of kittens isn't really that different from raising children, it takes a lot of hard work to keep newborn kittens alive by feeding them often, cleaning them frequently, and giving them a warm place to sleep. These kittens were so hungry and I knew Jewel and Princess needed more than just plain cow’s milk to fill their empty stomachs, so I went online and found out how to make kitten formula. Then I did some research about how much they needed to eat, which I needed to know their approximate age in order to know how much and how often to feed them. The information told me a way to tell their approximate age by how big they are and if their eyes are open or closed. Jewel and Princess had fluffy gray fur that was really soft, their eyes were still closed and were the size of a female human palm. With this description, I figured they were about 1-2 weeks old. Jewel and Princess would need to be fed......

Raising Children

...of that reward for bad grades, this leads to an explanation of how school is their job and work is mine. I get promoted and more money the better I work and get less maybe even fired for doing poorly. In conclusion DR Ryan has given us ten great tips for raising children. I want all to remember no child is born with a how to manual and just like us each child is different. As parents we all want what is best for our children, one of the best ways to give them that, is to remember they are individuals and must be treated like one. I close by saying as parents we need to come down off our high place and do our best to lead our children to that high place. Teach them to place god before all other things, goodness towards others, and humility is a good thing and then all you have to do is watch them blossom into the fine young person you was hoping for. “Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” (King James Version: Proverbs 22:6).

Cane Corso Managerial Analysis

...CANE COSO v. PIT BULL: Let’s Compare Some Traits I have to say, we’re obviously biased here toward cane corsos, but we do love pit bulls nonetheless. So, I wanted to address the subject that seems to come up frequently about “Which is a better guard dog?” My immediate answer, hands-down, ALWAYS is the cane corso. While pit bulls are fierce and highly aggressive toward other dogs, they seldom attack people. They are very sociable, and make good family pets, despite their bad reputation. We have owned several pit bulls, so this is speaking from experience. They are very good hunting dogs…pits LOVE to be worked. And I doubt you’d ever find a better Frisbee chaser than a pit bull. But when it comes to guarding your ASSets, **ahem** I have to go with the cane corso every time. Plus, they’re still under the radar in terms of where you can own one and drive around with one in your vehicle, which is a bonus if you’re into driving around with your dog riding shotgun. Pit bulls are quickly becoming outlawed in many regions, sadly because of false media representations and also because people just don’t seem to want to devote the amount of time required to train such an active-breed dog…I guess it all goes back to the saying that dumb people just shouldn’t own dogs, but it’s still a free country in that respect. Here’s a link to an article that picks apart each breed a little better than I think I could do: http://www.squidoo.com/pittbullsvcanecorso This article,......

The Cane

...The cane. Simply put the stigma of the cane alone can be a daunting prospect. Never mind the fact that I don’t have a disability. In all honesty (and ethics aside) I was afraid to use a cane in public because canes are an instant label. Does it make any sense at all that I would be more comfortable using crutches than I would a cane? No? Me either, but that’s the truth of it in a nutshell. Realistically, though perhaps not logically, crutches convey something temporary, an injury that will eventually heal. An injury that perhaps could even be conceivably derived from my athleticism gone awry, a sign of my wholeness on pause that would eventually return. A cane labels you as weaker than the rest, unhealthy even, takes you aside socially, mentally and physically from those that walk and live unassisted, strong, normally. I don’t like thinking that I am capable of snap judgments on the characters of others whom I have never met. I don’t like to think that I am capable of thinking so shallowly. In fact when I am in the presence of someone that is disabled I can’t help but want to help. I consider their apparatus to be a part of their personal space, an extension of their bodies and respect their needs which are usually no more than patience and space. I will always hold doors, reach something for those that can’t or be sure my children are respecting boundaries and be patient around those that need more time to complete tasks. Though, in the confines of my human body, I......
