I think the spammers believe that anyone named gypsy must be a man, because the mail seems to be slanted towards a man. I never actually open them up but the inbox sometimes shows the first few words, such as "Hello mighty man". I recently received one that I thought was funny, the subject of which was "Help me cheat on my husband". I wonder how many people actually open up these obviously stupid emails.
I need to stop watching Animal Cops Houston on TV. Lately I've seen several episodes featuring German Shepherds, and I want one. I'd like a small female shepherd. I love big dogs and can't imagine myself ever wanting a very small one, but I'm thinking something between 60 and 70# would be just about right. I also love black labs, but don't have the energy for even a middle aged lab. It's all dreaming though, because I don't think I could afford to feed one much less deal with vet care.
I remember old days as a child when we took our dog to the vet for a checkup and booster shots once a year. It probably cost $10 in those days! I think dogs were healthier back then, and I heard of such things as distemper and rabies, but not the list of serious diseases of today.
I miss Lady, and Smoky before her.
