Welcome aboard

If you've just arrived here in my little corner of the world, my last entry might not make too much sense unless you go back and read the prior entries relating to my time in USMC boot camp.

The easiest way to get to them is to look on the right side of this page and scroll down to the part called "Labels."  There are several blog "subjects" listed there.  To get to the 15 "USMC boot camp" entries just click on that category and read them in order starting with USMC Boot Camp 1 “False Bravado”

I also hope I didn't offend any dog owners in the last grouping.  I apologize if I did.  I've owned dogs and I don't hate them. 

I just don't trust them...

Multiple Dogs

At risk of raising the ire of both friends and relatives...

a) Why in the world would you have a dog in an apartment?
b) Or any place without a yard for that matter?
c) Why would you have more than one dog in a house?
d) Or two, or three, or four, or more dogs anywhere but on a farm?

These are smart people, why can’t they see that? My next door neighbors are amazingly exempt from this complaint. They own 5 dogs and they are pretty darn quiet.

Of course many dog owners are perfectly capable and stable enough to handle the task, but we all know many who are not.

Seriously, Yuck!

Don’t people know that if they have dogs their house smells like it?

Don’t they know if they have more than one dog using their backyard as a bathroom, that their neighbors can smell it?

And how do they then let their children play on that same lawn or patio that is saturated with dog urine and feces?

Many dog owners have a poor sense of smell and are probably septic…
