Must Love Dogs!

Monday, February 22nd, 2010

Dogs have a way with us.  They can be warm, affectionate, and easy-going.  Dogs are loyal and curious creatures who love to play, nibbling here and there.  No yappy Chihuahuas please!  Witty banter is good, ceaseless chatter is bad.  And please, no pit bulls!

If you have these traits, stand at least 5′ 9″ tall, walk on two legs instead of four, and toilet-trained, maybe we should have a play date in the park.  You don’t need to be an Adonis but a reasonable facsimile with a shiny coat and healthy teeth and gums!

A meeting of minds (well-read, well-bred) is most important.  if you know your way around the world, the kitchen, and the bookshelves, we definitely can play ball!

Meeting Mr. Firefighter as a potential date-mate, well, need I say more, Single Gals?

But what if Mr. Firefighter is a wannabe “Mr. Safari”?

When asked why date a woman decades older, he smartly commented on how much he liked the colour of my hair, white strands and all.

Alas, he barely was old enough to have a hunting licence so the flame became a flicker.  And that’s when I decided to introduce Mr. Firefighter to Ms. Hotter Than Hell.

Mr. Firefighter wrote, “What’s wrong with you?”

I replied, “Do you find it odd that I would introduce you to Ms. Hotter Than Hell?” …. thinking what’s wrong with him?

He answered, “No, no, I meant what’s wrong with ME with YOU?”

I advised, “Better stick to fire fighting and leave the hunting to the cougars!”
