Why I don’t have a dog…

Don’t get me wrong — I REALLY want a dog. But, because I already have a rooster (in town) I figure I shouldn’t push my neighbors over the edge with a barking dog. They’ve already mentioned they don’t mind Buttercup’s crows because we put up with their dog barking. Plus, Buttercup is sorta like a dog: he digs in the garden, he crows at any noise he hears in the early morning, he poops all over the yard and he eats my plants.

I suppose I can do without a dog for a little while longer. And I guess I don’t need a pesky dog running around chasing my chickens. Buttercup is worth it.

Maybe one day…

    I would love to talk to you about an issue that I feel is a hot topic in environmental news. I have written an article that I think your readers would be interested in seeing on your blog.

    I looking to promote that idea that by encouraging grocery shoppers to branch out from their usual selections and to join the local food movement, they can help to conserve this forgotten species, and create a more sustainable agricultural system.
