Planet Earth

“Here’s something out of South Boston,” Bernie says. “This woman wants to start an overnight dog hotel, complete with massage, acupuncture and hydrotherapy.” Don’t know anything about those last two, but massage sounds nice. “It would create 17 jobs and provide training for 100 dogs. Sounds good to me. But the neighbors are up in arms. They’re making a big fuss about noise and smell.”

Noise and smell? Are any creatures noisier than humans, no offense? And as for smells, humans create way more than we do in the nation within the nation. Ever been to the dump, for example? I have no problem with the dump myself, always enjoy a visit there. Once we dug up an old computer and on it Bernie found all this evidence that sent a whole mess of perps up to Northern State Correctional. But where were we?

“Sometimes I think,” Bernie says, “that a whole bunch of people think this planet’s just for them.”

Yeah, that’s where we were.

    I'm wondering how the dog hotel can provide training for 100 dogs. Anyway….humans need to get back to basics and allow their dogs to do the same.

    Speaking of hydrotherapy, I think that's great. Good for aching joints, Chet. Do you swim? Our dogs like swimming. Franklin even goes down the small rapids behind the house. The older ladies just wade.

    The Pack swimming out back. The river is frozen now.

    Great picture, Melanie. I'm jealous. Don't see water like that here in the Valley. But I love swimming. Once Bernie and I went to San Diego. Plus I've been in swimming pools from time to time. That might be in Thereby Hangs A Tail. Or somewhere else – it's not so easy to keep track.

    Hey Chet, have you ever tasted Latkes? The are fried potato pancakes, if you don't know, and are really yummy; my mom made some last night for the first night of Chanukah. She makes the best Latkes, crispy and not greasy at all. I bet they are as good as those french fries you had after Thanksgiving. Thinking of you always, and Happy Chanukah from your friend in Chevy Chase. Wookie.

    Our Mom has really wanted a Newfy since one won Westminster several years ago, but is afraid that it would be too hot down here in southeast Texas so she really loved that picture!

    Mr. Peepers hates the water, he's strictly a sun dog.

    Melanie – How many dogs are in that picture? Ohmygod! And when they are done swimming, do they come into the house?

    Humans, many of them, at least, need to get a grip and realize that Earth is not just for them. It is for everyone and it is everyone's responsibility to take care of it and maintain its delicate balance.

    I agree with Chet. A little smell and noise from his nation is nothing in comparison to what some inconsiderate humans do.
