That is my actual and original quote from senior year where we were asked to offer a quote. It was published in the school newspaper along with our "last will and testament". That was kind of a fun tradition where you could offer some final sentiments to friends that you'd likely be leaving behind. The funny thing is how naive I was back then. I was oblivious to it at the time but many of the last will and testaments of other students were laced with drug references. I had no idea. I read it a few years later and light bulbs were going off all over the place. Poor Doxies...two dogs long and half a dog high. It just proves that even our woofers with challenges still find a way to worm their way into our hearts. A pink leash, eh? I could certainly do it but I'd have to have the proper motivation. That would not include doing it for a family member. It would very likely have to come as a result of a desire on my part to curry some favor with an attractive female. Yeah, I'm very much a guy on that score. So shoot me. Retrievers retrieve and guys will do all kinds of silly things to try to get a gals attention. It's not pretty sometimes but instincts keep the species alive. Did you survive your dinner? It can be challenging to bring something together when the pantry is lean. That alone will drive us out of the house on a shopping trip. I'm having leftovers tonight. I smoked some ribs yesterday so I'll be gnawing on bones again tonight. You're not alone in your desire to look for simple solutions to meals. There's no shame in that at all. I hope you get your BAK RR shot soon. You'll do great.
I'm glad you liked those LOLs. They put up some good pictures to work with. I hated to caption the Goldie and the kitteh since there's really no way to improve upon the picture. It's just too cute. Is BAK RR back on? I saw an episode 8 floating around. I hope it gets going again as I'm anxious to see what everyone does with the story line. You would have to work far harder than the men and sports line to offend me...not that offending me should be a goal but you didn't come close with that one. That's a good phrase you coined. I don't doubt it came in handy. Doxies are notoriously hard to train, aren't they? My niece has a couple and she has doggie diapers on them as they're not reliable in the house. Yap dogs...snerk...you're right about that. I do prefer my big breeds and there are a few I would consider but there is a little cutey that won me over when we were going through obedience training. There was a little King Charles Cavalier in our class that was just a little love bug. She was so sweet and well behaved. Mind you it could never be MY dog and I wouldn't want to be seen walking it but if some gal showed up that had a little Cavalier that I could love on behind closed doors, that wouldn't be too bad. Neither of those are a goal, though. It's just the circumstance that a little dog could find its way into my home. I can see where a kitteh stroller could be ideal for Millie. Since she already loves the walks and this would give her greater vision I think it's a great idea.
She can use it. She's got to drive to Jackson, TN on Sunday to meet the transporter to get the cats, the go home and get them settled down. It seems right now she has allergies and it wore her down. She's strong. She'll rally
The athlete comment was not so much for me as it was for Miss Becky. The ball goes about four times further when I throw with a chuckit so it's a far more enjoyable game of fetch when we can use it. I wasn't imagining anything worse and I certainly wasn't diminishing how annoying that FB interaction was. It pretty much was what I expected. I'm embarrassed for men that they try stuff like that and I feel badly too because sometimes crap like that works. Gals like a project sometimes and want to "fix" him.I look at how some guys treat women and wonder how it is that they are in a relationship. Both genders have their sick pups(with apologies to pups) but the guys can be really bad. Isn't that interesting how Millie stakes a claim on people. That must make your heart melt to see her attempts to make sure you don't leave. They really can add so much to our lives. I've known a few people that have birds and grow very attached to them. I'm sure they have their charm but I'd rather have a big ol' goggie that I can wrestle with. Besides, if you get something like a parrot, they can have a lifespan as long or longer than us. I'd hate to have a pet outlive me and worry there at the end if they'll get the same kind of care. It's just sad to think about. I took one look at that roomba chainsaw contraption and knew that it was the work of basement cat. I don't know if it's a good thing that wound up on the FP. I may wake up with one of those in my house because I exposed him.
