                  LOOKING GOOD - June 19, 2008   
              "Tips To Help You Look & Feel Your Best"   

Good Morning,   

Remember ysterday's rant on older parents and the current
crop of kids I called "brats"? A funny thing happened on
the way to the "mailbox". I realized I should have followed my 
own advice. No, I'm not pregnant, adopting, or renting any
kids. I'm talking about Moose and Ginger and the difference
in raising them vs six years ago when I got Keno!

Moose and Ginger are technically better dogs than Keno was
as a puppy. Keno, if any of you recall, was quite the "destroyer"
and caused a lot of damage to the yard, (many, many times),
shoes, walls, and even the carpet six months before he died...

Moose and Ginger haven't done nearly as much damage as Keno,
however, I think because I'm older and there are two lively
pooches, I'm less patient and less diligent in the training

Things I find funny and wouldn't have tolerated a few years
ago cause me to shrug my shoulders and laugh. (I know, I'm
already discusted at myself at this admission)...

Flyboy keeps saying he's going to start obedience training
like he did with Keno at this age. I'm thinking his target
date must be August...2010

Moose and Ginger really aren't bad pups at all. In fact, they
play together so much that they don't seem to care about doing
anything "bad" in the house. As for the outside damage, not
that I'm defending Moose, but...when you have feet the size
of hers, you are bound to trample things that get in your way,
and when there happens to be running water on bare dirt, sometimes
a nice mud footbath makes those tootsies feel nice and soft. And
everyone knows you have to dig a few feet to get the best mud...

I guess my point is, just like kids. You can't blame a kid or
a dog for having no manners or acting like fools. You just
gotta blame the parents...

Of course I have excuses, and I'll give you a description of
each dog's personality and demeanor, which will put it all
in perspective. Nah, not right now, I have to go and apologize
to them for being a bad parent...
