    I would love that. Hopefully it's warmer there. I let the dog out this morning and thought "this isn't too bad", then I made the mistake of reading the weather and found out that it's only 7 F with a windchill of -6 F, so now I feel it. :frown:

    hi wolram, why do you like to compare your health to a dog??

    I was more curious to know how fit a butcher's dog is? :rofl:

    Anyway, glad you're feeling better Wollie...I hope Russ is getting better as well.

    A butcher's dog is usually fit as a fiddle (that's a Kentucky/Arkansas violin)

    I was wondering that, too. Is the dog fitter because he gets the scraps from the butcher's meatcutting? Or is the dog overweight because of eating so many scraps? And isn't dry dog food better for a dog's dental health? Or are we talking about a clumsy butcher and the dog is missing a few body parts, but that's okay because the dog has also developed some faster reflexes? (I once had a three legged chihuahua chase me on my 10-speed down the street, so missing one or two body parts doesn't make a dog totally unfit.)

    And how old is this fiddle and how has it been stored? Kentucky and Arkansas are fairly humid places so how do we know this fiddle is still fit?

    BobG -
    no, the butcher's dog, aka tomorrow's hamburger sale, is never fit or unfit, just a disappearing act.

    Your picture is still pending approval, but I can hardly wait! Please tell me it's a picture of a three-legged chihuahua at a wedding!

    This year's new wedding accessory

    You google three legged chihuahuas and you start to wonder if this is an actual breed of chihuahua. Why are there so many three legged chihuahuas?

    Woolie,I just found out why you were sick!

    butcher's dog disease = nutritional secondary hyperparathyroidism

    You've got to start eating better. :wink:

    did you know that chihuahuas were actually and first called chi dogs?

    ---but because of their size, they were stepped on and sat on so often and so many times, and that their little howl (HOUAAA) was shorted to -hua and then double ---huahua and then added to their original name chi---huahua.
