It's time for my annual rant about dogs.  I imagine every person reading this blog has a dog.  The street on which I live has only one house without at least one dog, mine. My former tenant of many years ago had the most beautiful lawn in the neighborhood and he had two large dog.  I...

It's time to rant again about dogs.  Don't get me wrong.  I have owned my fair share of man's best friend - and woman's too.  However, they were owned under the old rules that I followed.  They were dogs.  They stayed home when we traveled by air or dined in restaurants....
