A few days ago the subject of Ben Stein came up. I must admit a strong dislike for most of what he says, but this one clip from 60 Minutes came to mind:
Not the worst advice I’ve ever heard, really. Dexter, also known here as The Coolest Dog Evah, Dex, D-Mac, Stinky Puppy, Buddy, Shit for Brains, Dickhead (nobody can be good ALL the time, right?), Licking Machine, Puppy Wuppy and Crackhead, gets more fun by the day, I swear. Most of his little annoying habits are lessening; if only he’d stop eating grass. I have to Google that. If you’re at all considering getting a dog, check out petfinder.org or if you happen to be anywhere near Xenia, Ohio, definitely work with 4 Paws for Ability. Anyway, I read yesterday that his veterinarian died, an accidental drowning in a pond right behind his own house. Very sad. Dex had only even seen him once or twice, but Mike really liked the guy, too. Having never met him myself though, it did jog my memory in another direction – not only is today our seven year fauxnniversary, but according to his papers from 4 Paws for Ability, today is Dexter’s second birthday.
