A classic line from the 1993 movie The Sandlot. Great movie! If you haven't seen it,I highly recommend that you do. It's a movie that the whole family can watch together without having to worry about your kids seeing violence and hearing cuss words every 5 seconds.
Anyway,that's the line that first popped into my head when I got the e-mail that I was a DDP again today. And then I got the giggles because I was remembering that movie. (Yes,it is perfectly acceptable for a guy to get the giggles. It does not make you less manly. A REAL guy does stuff like that. He has feelings and isn't afraid to express them. It's all good fellas. Giggle away!)
Thank you so much Catster for continuously honoring me for my writings in my diary thingy. It's really pretty cool. To my friends: as always,we love you tremendously. And even though my Mom teases me about maybe my head is getting bigger,it hasn't. She just likes to mess with me sometimes. She's like that. Smartypants!
UPDATE ON DUTCH: After yesterday's commotion at the dog park,Dutch is kinda stiff and sore,but we're thinking that he will be ok. Mom's keeping a close eye on him and if he stays stiff and sore for the next couple of days,she will take him to see Dr. Kevin who,BTW,also just happens to be April's Dad.(Dutch's friend Buddy's Mom.) Pretty much everyone that hangs out at the dog park takes their animals to Dr. Kevin. He's awesome. We had to make a change in Drs. We just HAD TO. The place that we had been going to for ages has changed so much. It's very stressful out there. Lots of mistakes have been made that are just so completely unacceptable,animals are not being handled with care,and there are issues with the interactions of staff out there that are strongly similar to a very poorly written soap opera. They are also extremely expensive now too. Charging far too much for such substandard care and alienating a lot of their clients. It's sad really. That's the same place where many of my furry family members were adopted from...including me! That place has always had those staff interaction and bad behavior issues,but then they hired this creepy dude to "run" the place. I've met him and I have to agree with my Mom that he's a gigantic boogerhead.
Hang on to your chairs gang,'cuz what I'm about to tell ya next just may knock ya over with disgust. Ok,so,the aforementioned former vet clinic that we used to go to is also in charge of the city pound. The boogerhead dude has now decided that they will no longer allow anybody to adopt GSDs,Pits,Rotties,and Dobe's. Why you ask? Because Mr. boogerhead doesn't like those breeds and is afraid of them. (oh c'mon cupcake. GROW UP!) This town does not have BSL and for you to take it upon yourself to ban these breeds when there are plenty of people willing to adopt them and give them good loving homes makes me physically ill. Perfectly good dogs that have done nothin' wrong except they got out when they they shouldn't have and got lost. And when some owners come in to re-claim their beloved dogs,they get charged crazy high prices and get obnoxiously harassed. Sadly,these innocent souls will be put down because of Mr. boogerhead. Breaks our hearts and Mom is so outraged that she could just...well...you can imagine what any devoted animal lover like my Mom would want to do. DISCLAIMER: Guys,we DO NOT encourage violence ever. It's just plain wrong.
Mom is going to contact our local police chief and discuss this with him and see what he has to say. Think about it. How many innocent lives will have to pay the ultimate price just 'cuz they happen to be of a certain breed. AND let's just say,hypothetically,that Dutch were to run off and get lost and end up in that pound.(That wouldn't happen in a million yrs,but we're being hypothetical here like I said.)Since he is half GSD,his life would be in jeopardy BIG TIME. So,yeah,Mom will do some checkin' and see what's up and this topic has been an ongoing conversation among the regulars at the dog park. Hopefully,they can come up with a plan to stop what is happening and possibly go before the city council and get it stopped. They're not gonna hold their breath tho 'cuz this town is run by some really ignorant folks. Oy!....It's worth a try anyway. I'll let ya know what happens after info is gathered and a plan is made. It's gonna take time and plenty of work to make sure that all of the facts are gathered.
Yikes! Once again I have babbled on quite a bit. Thank you all for indulging me.
My the force be with you,live long and prosper etc. *flashes Spock's Vulcan hand thing*,

P.S. A great big Happy Birthday shout out to my Aunt Deb who turns 29 again today! *snicker* Love you!!!!
