It is Monday. For some, it is also a fasting day. Sorry guys, but that is the 2 leggeds' reality. Not mine. Hope they don't get too cranky around here today- And I don't want to complain, but my 'puccino foam was late. Whatever descale is about, the machine demanded descaling. Looked like a forced bath process to me, noisy and loud and with lots of water. It took forever. But the foam was delicious and I must admit it smelled yummy. Kudos to my human staff.

Knobs, valves and such have to be your domain 'cause I am thumbless. No, I am not complaining about that. One look in the mirror and there is no way I would want to be anything but Bichon. [Face it universe, Bichon is the quintessential embodiment of cute!] Besides, technology is evolving daily and soon, your thumbs will be redundant. Voice/bark activation will replace knobs, valves and such, everywhere!

I was thinking. As soon as technology evolves enough to make driving a handless task, I want a car of my own. I want a 4 seater, convertible, pink of course, with cushy tufted interior, with all the options: purified water bowl holders, chewie dispenser, paw massager and auxiliary sniff vents and on off ramps, back scratchers and belly rubbers. Of course interior and exterior lighting, air conditioning, air filtering system, humidity controlled [hate the frizzies], oh oh oh... I want auto cruising mode for ocean front and, I want hydrolics, so I can raise or lower my ride as I see fit. You never know what you want to see.

I am doing away with that center console in favor of napping bridge and yes, I do want a captain's seat for myself, fully swiveled tilting action with insta-lock. Think the guys from Pimp My Ride could outfit my car with a 3-d theater, a 'puccino foam machine and a mini smokeless grill and mini fridge? That would make my ride sweeeeeeet.

JD is suggesting I also install and ice maker. Not a bad idea. We love ice cubes. Of course state of the art satellite navigation and telecommunication system on board [like I would have it any other way], got to stay in touch with my peeps, cameras, etc, you know all the standards.

I know that some of you are squinting reading this. But that whole concept of insurance and "safe driver" discount etc, will be null and void! We are talking state of the art automation, not reliant on human driving. That Geiko dude will be operating parking lots. You will see. I am a visionary.

Until then, I have to be content to go for rides with momma and daddy. Reality... what a buzz killer.

Vote, please. Still trying , still working at it...

Rocky, thank you. Dexter, a rescue at White Cottage is having bladder stone surgery next week. A kind gentleman from Florida sent in a donation that will pay for some of that surgery. The million dollar would be a way to insure medical care for all who need it without having to wait for donations. Derek is a very nice man who understands rescue. All volunteers, all unpaid, all overworked...
