Hello and welcome back to the wonderful world of the Dogpound. Max likes to chew but fortunately he does not take his habit out on my furniture or shoes; he is completely satisfied with the big rawhide bones that I give him. I buy a 3 pack and he goes through them like a hot knife through butter…so I thought that a ham bone would be just the thing to last more than a few days. I had cooked a big pot of soup beans and put in a big ham-bone shank for added flavor. After the soup was finished, I washed off the bone and gave it Max before I left for work. This bone was at least 10 inches long and thick as my forearm, so it was to my great surprise on my return from work, that the only thing left of that bone was a few small fragments by the sliding glass door. Makes my teeth hurt just thinking about all of the gnawing, grinding, and crunching. Glad I was at work and out of earshot.
THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
“It is easier to be wise for others than for ourselves.” Francois De La Rochefoucauld
A police officer stopped an elderly lady’s car for speeding. Upon reviewing her license and other paperwork he noticed that she had a permit to carry a concealed weapon. The police officer asked her if she had a weapon in her posession at this time, and she replied she had a .45 automatic in her glove compartment. The officer asked her if that was the only weapon in her car, to which she replied, “Well I do have a 9mm Glock under the seat and a short nosed .38 in my purse.” The officer asked with a bit of concern, “What are you afraid of?” She looked the officer in the eye and responded, “Not a dang thing!”
Overheard: “It is just amazing how the idiot who married my precious daughter can be the father of the smartest and cutest grandchildren in the world.”
A young boy, doing what a young boy will do, was running around the house when he tripped and hurt his knee. Crying up a storm his mother picks him up and wipes away his tears. “You know Tommy that you are very lucky you did not break a bone. Your guardian angel must have been watching over you.” From the background his older sister yells, “I bet that guardian angel has bags under her eyes from the lack of sleep.”
Max is smacking his lips, so I should refill his bone bowl. As always be good, play safe, and remember to be wise in all things.
JR and Max
