I need to take a moment to do something a little unusual. I'm going to actually show my appreciation for my Great Oppressors B and J. I had a moment in the park with B today which made me realize how good I've got it. There we were walking along and this cute boxer looking dog walks up with his bland looking young urban G.O.'s. The boxer wasn't really my style but we took a moment to sniff and as we are sniffing B said something like "he is a little cutie." Instead of saying thanks or complimenting me one of them says to B "he's neurotic is what he is." Then they walked away. WTF????? This is when I had my little epiphany that B and J are okay. When someone compliments me as people often do B and J say "thanks" or "your dog is really nice too." They NEVER, EVER say things like "yeah but you should smell her farts" or "she got in the trash last night." It was a little like the moment in the movie Singles where Matt Dillon says "Bless you" in the elevator when Bridget Fonda sneezes. That was my epiphany.

And then completely out of the blue they brought me this.

That's right, a canine ice cream sandwich. Ahhhhh.

Canine ice-cream sandwich = goooood.

Humans who don't support their dogs = baaaaaad.

I'm glad that you had that epiphany, Sid.

Useful moment to remember when the GO's do somethin' stupid.

Chow for now,

i'm sure the lil' boxer was saying something under his breath "yeah but the jerk on the other end of the leash kinda ruins the picture" or "and what i'm doing with that ugly dork is a mystery to me."

it's fine to be greatful--just don't let your oppressors know. these kind of things go straight to their already big heads.
