in the category with Little Richard – you be the judge. Then there was Dorothy Kilgallen, panelist on the popular 1950’s TV program “What’s My Line” and columnist referring to Elvis as “Elvis the Pelvis.” From that point Elvis and Kilgallen were less than cordial to each other ( I don’t blame him). People and their pets: For a long time the association of humans and their pets had been a puzzle to me. That isn’t true anymore. Five years ago, Coach Diane Smith’s daughter Kayla Ralston brought home a justweaned thoroughbred miniature Italian Greyhound. In a court of law I suspect both ownership and custody would be awarded to Kayla. But Little Piper did not make it to the residence with Kayla – she now lives ( and belongs) at the Smith house; Kayla is allowed short visitation rights.
To all you people who have a dog ( or cat) as a pet at your house, I understand your devotion and love for the pet. Even though Piper dictates nearly my every move, I love that dog. I join with thousands of others in saying our pets become members of our family.
For those less informed, let it be known that our domestic pets have personality. They manifest love, loyalty, happiness, sadness and pain. It is a matter of less than patience with anyone who inflicts pain ( cruelty) upon a domestic pet. I like to think that Piper is blessed with the greatest of care and joy while remaining in her “adopted home.”
