College instructor teaching human sexuality rants about the dumbing down of America, the lost art of manners, grammar and (the perfect combination of both) the thank you note. Also includes random rants about life, pet peeves, and sometimes raves about favorite things.
When you rescue a dog who has multiple "issues" you spend a lot of money. And you get a lot of photo ops. Here, we have the Biting Wonderdog who is SO freaked out by our ripping out the hideous kitchen wallpaper (downstairs) that she actually climbed into a full laundry basket. (Or maybe she's just been freaked out by the hideous wallpaper for so long and she finally found a way to tell us that she too, hated it.) This is a new trick for her. This is a dog who will not even go up or down steps if there is a chance someone will carry her. She has never really grasped the concept of "fetch." An extremely expensive trainer told me early on in our relationship (mine and BWD's - that trainer and I never got past that first intake process because I couldn't afford more than that) that BWD was "socially retarded and had no sense of humor." She must have been scared out of her little lemon-shaped brain. Also note - underneath just the top layer of laundry is a Human Sexuality textbook. She seemed to enjoy standing on it.
