I am taking this up on behalf of dogs everywhere - our loyal, loving, four-footed friends. They can't use facebook - they can't twitter - they can't get the local paper to do a canine-interest story. You might never know their deprivation as they sit quietly licking themselves, or chewing on your shoe.
Why is there catnip but not dognip?
Give tabby a snort of the mouse-filled-with-nip and there's immediate gratification: much more so than even when Bubba has a good chaw 'n' spitcup going at a NASCAR event! The cat practically floats into the air, bounces off walls, happily nuts. But there is no alternative for dogs. It's unfair.
And while the DEA may indeed expand the War on Drugs to include catnip as a gateway drug, our little Chester or your little Spot has little but rabbit turds to elevate his mood.
I would like to invite you to join me in a new organization - we'll call it AARF. Let's bring a smile to man's best friend! Donations are encouraged.
And while I am thinking about things, if cash-strapped NASA would join forces with our most popular spectator sport and become NASACAR, well, the synergies would be an immediate win-win. I foresee a 2 second quarter mile run in the very near future.
Two people recently mentioned to me they enjoy my blog. To them and you I say a big MERCI!
