Boom De Ya Da

From The Best People I Know Are Dogs file:

Every morning, immediately after the three Girlz go out for the first time, as soon as they come back in, I  give each a MilkBone.  They get very excited as I open the cupboard, reach in blindly and rattle around those biscuits in the dog "cookie jar."  We have an order, always the same...Taffy first, the Rico and finally the baby, Poncho. Each dog has their habitual, self-selected, private eating spot.   I noticed today that Poncho's MilkBone had one end broken off.  I thought about replacing it with a whole biscuit, but he was spinning and wagging his tail and begging so I gave him the broken biscuit. He took it, tail wagging and ran to his spot.  He never whined, "Hey mine's broken! Mine is smaller!  They each got an whole one, a perfect one!  I got cheated!  I want another one!  You love Taffy and Rico more!  You favor them over me"   He just ate his biscuit, happy that he had gotten one. This is just one small example of why dogs are the finest people I know.





I've lived on this side of Florida since 2010.  Every single day of those four years, summer, winter,spring and fall, my allergies have  slammed me.  Today, I found a photo of our house on Google Maps.  Our house is the one with the white screened pool cage to the left of the house with the red dot.  After looking at our back yard and the other side of the lake, I now "get it" about the non-stop allergies...all that green and no frost to kill anything off.


An Earworm for my can thank me later
