My Snoopy was a great pooch!! I trained her to poop in my parents bed and I would suck out the insides of the steak fries and fill them with nasty vegetables and feed them to my Snoopy. I was stationed in Hawaii when my folks had to put her down and for that I am happy as it would have broken my heart to have to put her down!

Miss ya Snoopy!!!

"My_Life (anonymous) replies…

There were always a few bad batches in that little house on the NW corner of 23rd and Mass back in the 60s & 70s. It's a garden these days. I had you figured as "live and let live". Those who cannot change their mind cannot change anything. RWE"

Ha! I know the house, I think, that you are talking about.. Was right behind the Hanna's with one driveway that went though the whole block. I used that driveway a few times to ....Well, you know...

No one could catch us in that neighborhood. I grew up in that neighborhood and owned it with my brother and neighbor friends. What does RWE mean??

I really think you should consider re-naming yourself "Bad_Batch (anonymous)" ......

"Did you cook it too?" - My_Life it? = rock?

I will personally vouch that autie most assuredly does not cook rock.
You should take your drug addled life somewhere else.

Mrs Roe's first pet was a German shorthair named Spot. Belonged to her brother first but wouldn't hunt anymore after he (the dog) peed on the electric fence . . . Don't suppose I would either . . .

I remember two. A dog named Bosco and a duck. From what I'm told, the dog would follow me and the duck would follow the dog. Bosco liked to chase cars, and I imagine that was his fatal flaw.

Jesus speaks to everyone. Some just don't listen. Yes, geologists are very familiar with lovestones and can enlighten you.

We had a short fat beagle when I was born that looked more like a basset hound. His name was a racial slur and I didn't even realize it until later in life. But I'm sure the neighbors enjoyed hearing us yell it out the back door lots. Fortunately, the dog came with that name so I don't have to wonder where the hell my parents came up with that sharp idea.

A thinking rock? Wow! I got get me one of them. I better wait and let our resident geologist chime in on this one. That dude knows about rocks. If I can get a thinking rock I think I will name him Peter. Then build a church on him.

Mine was a pet rock named Indyn Lovestone. I still have him, but now I have renamed him Jesus after the rock in my life.

I had a rabbit until there was a little accident with the liquid nitrogen.

Wish I would have had the camera this morning. The artistic side broke through with a fitting tribute to the twin towers.

I did not know that Sarah Palin was such a huge basketball fan. This news can only expand her voter appeal qualities. Custer's motto at one time was "ride, wolverines! ride". Looks like Sarah liked to ride wolverines. I wonder if she shot them later.

Looks like it might be a shade damp down there on the banks of the Walnut river this week. Great camping weather but I hope ole charliejohnson can keep his powder dry. I don't know if God isn't trying to smite some of those hippies.

This reminds me of the email I received a while back. You can deduce your pornstar name by combing your first pets name and the street you grew up on.

My dad would always bring home anybody's unwanted strays so I don't remember the "first" one. I do remember when I was 4 or 5 he brought home a German Shepherd that had been kept in a small cage all its life. It would not walk in a straight line and when excited would run in tight little circles. We named him Spinner.

Hollis, somehow I know what your first pet was. And, I give her my prayer. More important than that, I give you my prayer so that you will be alright. Get back here when you can but, more importantly, get back into the game. We believe in you. Time to get back.

It would be inappropriate for me to mention her name....we'll call her madame X. We must have been all of about thirteen at the time. I'll never forget that evening over behind the Quik Trip store and she showed me about.....uh...cain't tauk boutit nomore hear.

A hamster. Named him Brownie. Had a great dog from before I was born. But, Brownie was my first pet and my first death of a friend. Guess they do not live that long.....

If Brownie was here today I think his first order of business would be to take Cole out of the mugshot Crew. For his, Cole's, safety. Then I think he would chew off all of the hair of the other three and make a nice bed of stink in it. He was not too particular. But a good pet and friend....

R.I.P., Brownie
