Hmm. What is the AMBOR?
And shouldn't Georgia be a Yella Cur?

Ok, soooo, no Great Dane at all!? And I'm soooo offended that you think the Bichon should be Wisconsin's state dog. BLECH!

No offense to anyone who owns a Bichon of course. They're just too small and poooooofy for me.

BBE-I finally figured out how to get into your blog again. (And I echo...stupid google!)

Hi Jenn! Bummer, you have Beta? I'm waiting until every bug is worked out. AMBOR is mutt: American Mixed Breed Obedience Registry. Except it's not limited to obedience any more.

Wisconsin now has a Great Dane as the oficial state dog! What was I thinking.

Hi anonymous. ;)~ Naughty Malboro men, huh.

No, I'm not on Beta. They are just all mucked up in the transition. I'm waiting for all of it to get ironed out before I move anything. Meanwhile, sometimes I can get logged in, sometimes I can't. V. frustrating!

AMBOR! That's my Bailey!

Oh, I went to the humane society and picked out a kitty today. She's eight months old and a calico. I wanted a younger one, but they didn't have one, and they scratch so much, don't know if it would be good for the 3 year old. So, I lied on my application and told them I owned my house. If you tell them that you rent, they call your landlord. I hope they won't find out that I am lying. Do you think that they could find out? It would be embarassing, plus I like the kitty. So, I'll probably find out tomorrow. She's so pretty!

Yikes - I've just been trying to leave comments and blogger beta is fighting me (yes - I transferred over....now I'm feeling the fool.)

Anyway - I love this list. It works perfectly. I think EVERYTHING should be thought of in terms of dogs! :)

A dachshund I owned in Albuquerque would like to edit the motto for New Mexico. Instead of "New Mexico : Lizards Make Excellent Pets", it should read, "New Mexico: Lizards Don't Taste Very Good". She took a chomp out of one once and I think it was horribly bitter -- she never did that again.
