It's 2010, y'all!

I was talking to a friend that I've known since elementary school, and when we were little if you had mentioned this year...We imagined that we would be living like the Jetsons. Yep, flying cars and all. Oh, how I could use a Rosie in my life. (That was the robot maid's name wasn't it.)

I didn't make any resolutions. I just have a list of a few things in my head that I must do, and a few things that I am going to try to do better. I know that is the easy way out. But I have to do what works for me.

I am working on a vision board...Well, it's on my laptop, because I do look at that more than anything, it's going to be my background. So once I get it together, then maybe I will do a traditional one.

Wouldn't you know, I start the year off with a rather random post. Ahh, that's me Random Remnants. And I guess I am going to end it with a bit of a rant.

My neighbors have 2 outside dogs, that are chained to their dog houses in the back yard. I feel bad for them, but I assume they have always been outside dogs. They get loose once in awhile, but they seem to stay close even if they are on the outside of the fence. At some point they got a little poodle mix. It seemed to be the pet for their little girl, I guess she's about 10 years old. I call it the yappy dog, because it always barks. Well, they are at a point where it seems the novelty has worn off & yappy is outside in the yard more often than inside it seems. In this frigid weather, so I am beginning to feel sorry for the dog. But my blood is boiling, because I have seen the little girl outside walking, playing with a little black fluffy puppy.

OK things don't always work out as planned. Maybe the poodle wasn't the best fit for them. Maybe the 10 year old isn't old enough to really be responsible for a dog. Maybe they are too busy to housetrain, take time for a dog. But please, find another home for the dog that didn't work out. And wait until you can take care of another dog properly. Because when the cute little fuzzy black puppy isn't a puppy anymore what happens? Four dog houses with dogs outside? I think our summers are too hot for some dogs to be outside chained up & at the moment it's too cold for them to be chained outside too.

Well, one of my try to do better for 2010 plans is to eat more vegetables...So let me go check on my red beans... I wonder how long my diet plans will last?

Happy New Year Remmy!

A poodle is not an outdoor dog in my opinion and it sure as hell isn't an outdoor winter dog. You can always make an anonymous call to the local ASPCA or Humane Society and ask that they check on the dogs. If everything isn't kosher they'll make the owner do right.

The little doggy wasn't out when I came home from work, so maybe they have come to their senses. But it's too cold for even the big dogs to be out.

Sounds wrong to me. Just wrong.
