1. What is the biggest thing that grossed you out over the past week?

Nothing has grossed me out lately, really.  Jai is in flaming heat, licking herself constantly while staring at the frankly disinterested neutered aussie, Zeke.  Pat is in Crate-Lockdown; insane with lust, his crate rocks and rattles and reeks of pee and misplaced optimism.  When I let him out he rushes around like he's late for an appointment, but he's not sure where.  I rush after him, try to shuffle him outside before he pees on something inside…Jai occasionally will glance at Pat in passing, but…almost as if to gauge whether hell really might freeze over, and instead she humps Annie, my inherited birddog.  Pat, too, humps Annie. Annie is getting a LOT of action. She takes it like a job. Most of this is happening in my backyard.  With me narrating details and hypothesis to my 19 year old son,

"Pats licking all the pee spots on the lawn….here come Annie…some chin-on-shoulder thumping action…Pat has to beat up on his lady a little…now he's ready for the hump…but no…Annie has to poop…that's got Jen's attention…I may have to switch Jen's food…to one that features shit…" 

The neighbors might have a different take on gross.

2. What do you feed your dogs? 

Currently its the Before Grain, Buffalo.  Raw chicken. Yogurt. I mix it up alot.  My dogs eat much better than I do, in general…Jen's unique tastes aside.

3. If you could move anywhere where would you live?

This is the first time in my adult life when this question has any real relevance and I've thought a lot about it lately.  I don't know.  My ideal was Coeur d'Alene, Idaho in the 1970s. 

4. What is the funniest thought that occurred to you (or thing that happened to you) this week?

I cannot think of a single thing that was especially funny.  I'll have to get back to this one.  Maybe it's been an especially dry week.

5. If you couldn't have your breed of choice what would be next on your list?

Not a bird dog, although I'm the only one in this house who feels that way.
