"Not Impressed"

The reason a dog has so many friends is that he wags his tail instead of his tongue.

Dogs aren't impressed by pedigrees. When a mutt meets a pure-bred with the name "Amber Britches from the Royal House of Winslow," he's not impressed. He's not intimidated nor does he behave differently. It just doesn't matter. It's no big deal. How unlike us. We get hung up on titles, prestige, power, position, status, and money. We're uncomfortable around some people because of all those so-called, qualities. But not a dog. A dog simply doesn't have the hangups we humans have. Maybe it's good that he doesn't know how much he doesn't know. And even if he did know, it wouldn't matter if he knew. He accepts us for who we are regardless of our pedigree. What would it be like if we did the same?-N. Wright

I would agree, the above writing is true. I would also like to say as a dog person, dogs are nicer than the average joe.

Tell your furry friend today that you love them.

Cook the first three ingredients in a saucepan until sugars are dissolved. Remove from heat. Grate the rind of the orange and lemon and add to mixture.
