Of all the items ever published in this Newsletter, I am repeatedly asked about "Are you as good as your Dog?" Indeed my personal favorite, I hope you will find in it, a special message for this Holiday Season. Enjoy it again!! ARE YOU AS GOOD AS YOUR DOG???? (May 1999)
Though not our usual forum for expressing personal views, I lifted this from a recent Ann Landers reader: Enjoy! "If you can start the day without caffeine, If you can get going without pep pills, If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles, If you can eat the same food everyday and be grateful for it, If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time, If you can overlook it when something goes wrong through no fault of yours and those you love take it out on you, If you can take criticism and blame without resentment, If you can ignore a friends limited education and never correct him, If you can resist treating a rich friend better then a poor friend, If you can face the world without lies and deceit, If you can conquer tension without medical help, If you can relax without liquor, If you can sleep without the aid of drugs, If you can honestly say that deep in your heart you have no prejudice against creed, color, religion or politics, Then my friends, you are almost as good as your dog!"
