I was gonna respond with something funny but, the guys internal organs are probably a mess.
Never the less, the dog realized that you don’t eat a good owner all at once.

From what his wife said, his foot probably tasted more like a “Margari-toe.”

Two weeks ago I watched as my diabetic neighbor’s trained companion dog alerted her that she needed insulin. The dog then retrieved some thingy from her little saddlebag and put it into the lap of my friend. I swear it was like watching a miracle unfold.

If you would like to be added or dropped from the Michigan ping list, please freepmail me.

This dog would make a more able governor than Snyder or Bernero.

My Jacks eat other peoples toes, not mine. The UPS man is afraid to come near my front door. Stoli nearly jumps through the window lunging at him.

“The UPS man is afraid to come near my front door. Stoli nearly jumps through the window lunging at him.”

My Yorkie loves the UPS man and his truck. If he stops at my house, she does a dance until the man gets to the door. I pick her up and hand her to the UPS guy while I take the package and he loves on her, then gives her back and he’s off in the truck again.
