If you feel that feasting on a multi-vitamin is important, please talk with your vet about using a chewable children's vitamin that contains NO IRON. Standards for human products are much more stringent and carefully monitored than those for dogs, and more often than not they cost less cheese money!

I can always trust you to be up on the health issues. That out of the way, let's get on with the flirting. Have I ever told you that although I am cranky with lots of dogs, I love Cocker Spaniels. Your new brother is pretty cute too.

Hey Stanislaw. Whats it's like to have a much older brother? Don't tell him I barked it but perhaps he needs a little of the dogtox to help him with his jowls?

Bt boy oh boy, your leggeds got hitched.!! Well that's REALLY wagging good news Stan. Send them my bestest congratulations for happy ever after. How kind of a guest to send you the Mr Magesty Yoghurt maker. And nice of you to let the leggeds borrow it.Rember to bow to it. And walk out the room it's in backwards.
