Lady would just let me cry.  She's good at blocking me out.  :)   Either that or she would push the cart into the parking lot and let an SUV crash into me...I bet I'd stop screaming then.

I take Lady and Grace to the pet store. 

YEAH!! You're right!  Aren' t poodles cute when they snarl and chew on your shoe strings and tug at your pant legs...and crack open like a bug when you step on them?

Nicole - it's size-ism!

Lins - that diaper is going to look gooooood with your S&M bra...   ;D

I have been seeing this sticker or banner or ad or something on some of the pet adoption web sites that mentions that large dogs, especially black ones, are the least likely to be adopted out.  It says something like - Think Big! Adopt Big!  We need our own BPO advocacy sticker that says something like "Bigger is Better" or "It Isn't Bad to be Big" or whatever.  Ya know, for when the man is trying to keep us down!   ;D

Lins,
When you go shopping with the girls, PLEASE call me. I'll make the three hour trip up there, just to take the photo of the year picture and post it here.

My son used to go to a nieghborhood private school and I used to walk the dogs there every afternoon to pick him up(he was in kindergarden)
My dogs would lay at my feet and wait, not move until we started to walk back. Another lady would bring her Yorkie(mop with feet), unleashed and running wild, and kids would chase it and it would turn and snap at them. I had told the lady that she needed to control her dog, someone was going to get hurt, but she stuck her nose in the air and asked what I was going to do about it. I told her nothing, unless that thing bites my kid, or my nieghbor's kid, then I'll wring it's neck like a chicken and hand it back to you.
Predictibly, there was a child bitten and all dogs were banned from the school property. One idiot can so ruin it for everyone else.

I'll let you know when we take the girls to the store.  I'll grab the camera on the way out the door. :)

We should all pick one store (national chain) and enter it with our big dogs at the same time. I wonder how much people would freak out then. All Big Pawed dogs in the store at once. Who could resist that?

I'd vote for Willam-Sonoma or Kitchen Kaboodle...... ........

Oh I am doing it, people.  I am putting Ranger in that strap-on baby-carrier thing I Photo-shopped earlier and hitting the stemware at Williams Sonoma with his legs flailing around and drool flying!

My dad used to carry me in one of those at the zoo.  The monkeys would pinch my toes...and I think I may have kicked him in the whoo hooo once.
