Dear Aunt Foley

Dear Aunt Foley: How does one respond (if at all,) to the "non-believers" among our family and friends who question the mental stability of our devoted humans who share our canine musings, accomplishments, insecurities and pictures with other like minded folks on the internet? Katie & Cassie~Angel

Dear Katia and Cassie-Angel:  Non-believers is a very proper term.  The connection between dogs and humans is very spiritual.  Just like some humans can’t find faith in a higher being, others can neither establish, or believe in, the connection between dogs and men.  You should never get angry at these people.  They should be pitied because they are missing out on so much good in their lives.

I originally had a plan to bring these non-believers around.  I gathered a group of zealous Water Dogs who believed as strongly as I did that humans should put their dogs every thought online to last throughout eternity.  I charged the dogs to track down all the non believers and use every tactic possible to convince them to believe.  I called them the Spanish Water Dog Inquisition.  

Let’s just skip to the end of that wasn’t a very good idea, and there are still lots of apology notes I have to write.  Turns out anything with Inquisition in it is bad.  But my heart was in the right place….like Dick Cheney.  So, everyone has the right to their own opinion and if people believe that it is strange to put our musings on the Internet they have the right to do so even if they are incredibly wrong and stupid.

And when those Spanish Water Dogs who I haven’t been able to track down take over the world all parents who devote their Internet time to their dogs shall inherit the Earth.

Are you a trip hazard?  Have your parents ever tripped over you?  How often?  Did anyone get injured

River Song 2012-2022

  At the end of the day what was wrong with River was everything: Fluid in the lungs, in the stomach, fluid in the heart, and very high kidney levels.  I think she loved us so hard, with such ferocity, that she used up her heartbeats. Thank you for your love and support. We might take some time from social media.  It is the first time in 26 years we haven't had a dog. We will find a new one, and be back.
