Here are the rules:
1. You may only guess one letter at a time.
2. After you have guessed a letter, you must wait for another player to guess a letter before you can go again.
3. The host of the game responding to a guess does not count as a turn. Should you choose a letter, then receive a response from the member host, you must wait for the next member to guess a letter.
4. One point will be awarded for each correct letter, 2 points for vowels.
5. Only six misses are allowed in the game.
6. If you wish to guess the phrase, send it to my email, [email protected] DO NOT post it on the forum. If you wish to guess a letter, post it on the forum.
7. You must have submitted a correct letter to submit your solution. Unlike letters, if you submit a wrong solution, you are disqualified from continuing in that puzzle.
8. The player who correctly guesses the phrase wins the game. If no one has guessed it correctly after six misses, then the player with the most points wins the game.
And here is what you win...you get to create the next puzzle. (Should you win the game, and do not care to host the next puzzle, you may pass your puzzle play to the member with the next highest point total).
Here goes!

Sure is slow around here today. Either everyone is recovering from last night or they're watching football. My team lost http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/frown.gif or I wouldn't be here either!

I would like to guess an "a", please.

Sudilar guessed it! The puzzle answer is:

Too many people choose a dog on the basis of its appearance alone without giving adequate consideration to the breed's ancestry, which is a factor that affects both its character and behavior.
