PFs post about Latte' and Shrek.

Before that, Teddy Bear. My son had been putting him through his paces. When it came to 'show me your paw', he got confused and sat. When he finally got it right, my son said "Good Boy." An hour later when he told him to get up on the stool so he could put his leash on, he put out first one paw then the other. He finally got up on the stool and my son again said "Good Boy. Again he went through the paw routine. That dog has a one track mind.

Thanks, Bucky! I only like the smell if it is faint...when it gets too close, I hightail it away!

Your smile and your boy made me smile and go, "Dawwwwww!" You can frame that along with what he said and show it to him when he's 16...

I just phoned my daughter and tried to impersonate a telemarketer. She knew right off that it was me, but I kept it up anyway. Which became so pathetic that it had us both laughing our heads off.

I once sent an Invitation to my Mother for my Bris...she figured it out when she asked my Dad what was an appropriate gift for a Bris... He enjoyed the laugh, too.

I grew up with bright red hair. It was my mother's fault also. I used to throw a temper tantrum every morning getting ready for school. I hated having red hair. She married a red head.
