After I wrote about Rocky and Athena, I wanted to do a follow-up, because there are always two sides to every story. Twelve years ago my son texted me a picture of his new puppy and the only reaction I had was, “Please tell me that’s not a pit bull.”    Many of us have …

Help! I’ve Got Fleas!

Not me actually, but my dogs do. And I’ve tried just about everything except… My son called me last night and I told him my dogs have fleas and he told me, “So get rid of them.” “What, the dogs? Okay, I’ll send them down to you.” And he laughed. He’s probably tired of me …
