A Dog’s Eye View
It’s been a Ruff summer for Phoenix and Smokey.

The following list has me convinced me we are all surrounded by Bad Dogs to such a degree, that when my major policy renewal season is over at the insurance agency, I may just start petitioning the State Legislature to make Chronic Bad Dog Syndrome (CBDS) an ailment worthy of allowing me to obtain an ADA placard for my car, and maybe install some sirens and flashing lights.

Not to mention the exploits of all the other critters that willingly hang out with us.
