To be prepared for war is one of the most effective means of preserving peace.

The old girls, Boxer mix-13, GSD-12...they mostly sleep these days. We raised both from pups.

The baby, she just turned 11 mos in Jan-- the old girls have been great with her and she has picked up some of their manners. :)

The baby and the rescue are best buds! The baby at 11mos is *much* larger than the rescue who is *about* 2yrs (tho the rescue is small for a Boxer).

We rescued this poor baby from Animal Control in July of 10-- she had a rough start but we've spoiled her rotten and you couldn't ask for a more wonderful, loving dog.

The old pups are relieved that she is here--she helps keep the baby from annoying them 24/7. The only drawback has been all the vet bills but she is worth every penny!

MATT LABASH

Several years ago, when Breitbart was in the middle of one skirmish or another – I don’t even remember which one – I told him that I didn’t know whether I should encourage him, but that he made me laugh, as always. I asked him when someone finally shot him, “Can I read a poem at your memorial service? ”

“I think I should stop,” he admitted of his latest caper. “But it’s so fun and the hate mail is something to behold….And of course you can read my favorite poem, William Carlos William’s ‘Little Red Wheelbarrow’ at my wake.” Well my friend, you mercifully didn’t get shot. But here you go anyway:

so much depends

upon

a red wheel barrow

glazed with rain

water

beside the white

chickens

I’ve never had any idea what the hell that poem means. And I suspect that neither Breitbart, nor William Carlos Williams, had a clue either. But it doesn’t matter. As Andrew held, sometimes absurdity is worth it for its own sake. And as he once wrote to me, “I hope people see that I’m dead serious about what I’m dead serious about, and besides that, it’s all about a good laugh.”
