    Guinness thanks you!

    Sunday morning, he went to the groomer. He was just going to get a bath, but his fur was a bit matted, probably because of the sticker bushes he's drawn to, and the syrup-like stool softener I have to give him three times a day. He ended up getting a basic clip, which I wanted to avoid because I thought it would be stressful. However, today was one of his good days, and he left the groomer bouncy and happy.

    Guinness is slowing down. He sleeps a lot, clatters his teeth more, has a difficult time pooping, and trips a lot on the stairs. He's lost a lot of weight. He's a dog's dog, though, and hasn't given up.

    Oh you're talking about the dog!!! I bought my first pitcher of this stuff at the Irish American Club in High School, some 30+ years ago! I also visited the brewery in the mid 90's @ St. James Gate, Dublin and the place seemed old then.

    Happy Birthday Dog!

    May the Road rise to meet you
    May the wind be always at your back
    May the rain fall softly on your fields and
    the sun shine warm upon your face.

    Till we meet again, may God hold ya in the palm of his hand.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)
