Margi--good luck re: contacting him. He is extremely entertaining if you get to see on eof his shows live. He was in the Ottawa area last year and a friend took me as a thank you for some editing I did for her at no charge. Liked, liked, liked. I think the tickets were around $85 and we weren't in the "top" seats. Enjoy your time in Switzerland and Puglia!

CWS,

Thanks ... I get the impression, he truly wants to build a rapport with the 4 legged and 2 legged clients he deals with. He has led me to believe, the two legged clients are far more difficult than the 4 legged ! I am a fan of his too.

Thanks. Do you plans to get away for a few days this summer ?

Ciao, got to run, it is dinner time here,
Until tomorrow,
HAVE GREAT WKEND.
margi.

He does try to connect with his 2-legged clients (always the more difficult clients). I am working on a lit review in July and August. I am hoping to go to LOW shortly--but I haven't received payment for the work I did in January and am a bit strapped for cash.

I may come out of retirement. Nothing like earning money at home. And I don't have to worry about becoming exhausted from working. I talk to Teddy Bear all the time. I already know that when he licks my hand he wants a back scratch. The other day when Son #1 called me, I heard Teddy Bear in the background. I told him to put the dog on the phone. All I sad was, "Do you want a back scratch?" He started barking. Gee, my first customer. I am a success.! I am busness.

I can put you in touch with my friend! My friends say that I'm a dog whisperer. I'm not--but the Saints (50+) that I've placed all go ga-ga over me.

I'd have to say you are more of a "Chicken Whisperer." Or Mrytle and Harriet are "People Whisperers." Cocky Rocky is just down right mean.

Seriously? A TV series about a guy who talks to dogs (and they don't talk back).
I saw the ad last night for the show. I might watch just one show (and only if I am bored) if just for the laugh-ability of it all.

I don't like animals in my face (wonder why?!) I am also allergic so I like them to be respectful of my personal space. I obviously care about animals (chickens, dogs, and cats), but I have to have boundaries because of my allergies and history.
Wow that's pretty full on, that would cause many people to hate dogs, it takes a brave person to get past an attack like that.
