Stupid Humans

I have a confession to make - I love reading the advice columns from Dear Abby and Annie's Mailbox.

Mostly I love how they offer common sense, and advocate proven counseling resources for people in need.

Today, July 23, 2008, I absolutely loved Dear Abby and her item on dogs kept locked in cars.

I'm an animal person. I'd love to get a dog, but I waver between, "Our apartment has a wonderful garden area" and "It's not fair to keep a dog in an apartment." splorp! comes down firmly in the latter category, though he likes dogs too.

Dear Abby today featured people who had written in to about what they do when they see an animal locked in a car. One advocated keeping the number for the Humane Society Rescue Unit on your cell phone. The best one was saved for last:

DEAR ABBY: While attending the 1994 Gator National Drag Race in Gainesville, Fla., an announcement was made for the owners of an '89 Buick station wagon to please get their dog out of the car. Fifteen minutes later, a new announcement: "For the owners of the '89 Buick station wagon, we have good news and bad news. The good news is, your dog is fine. The bad news is, your passenger side window is now broken."
Everyone in the stands cheered! -- MITCH IN ROXBORO, N.C.

Mitch who wrote in to Dear Abby, thanks for brightening my day! I love it. I think it serves those stupid people right.
