A local man has placed a personal ad in the paper to find a girlfriend. Not so odd, you might think. It’s for his dog. Yes, it seems that Buster has decided he needs a soul-mate. He is ready to settle down and start a family. He is even ready to start sharing his toys.
I gave My Harley Stud that look that makes me look like a confused Boxer. You know the one that makes that awful wrinkle in the middle of my forehead. No? …….Anyway…… I said, “That is just wrong on so many levels.”
Don’t get me wrong, I love my mushy faced pooches more than life itself but seriously?
First: Isn’t this big, burly guy just a little embarrassed to go on television to announce that he is playing matchmaker for his tiny dog? I mean, My Harley Stud is a sucker for our 10lb Shih Tsu but if he was on television, he wouldn’t give her the time of day. It would ruin his image, right?
Second: Why is this newsworthy?
Third: I was just about to go into my third reason when I decided I should text our friend, Mr. Lolly at the news station. Mr. Lolly is a part of the local news team and I thought it would be fun to give him my Smart Mouth opinion about such an important piece of journalism being broadcast from his studio when it occurred to me…..I’m going about this all wrong!
As a BONIFIED member of the Pollyanna Cheer Club, isn’ t this exactly what I wish and pray for? Good news. Surely Buster’s search for true love being aired today means that we had less killing, theft, raping and pillaging going on here in Palm Beach County. Could it be that no one was arrested for wearing their jeans too low. No refugees washed up on shore? No manatees were harmed by boaters today? No drive-by shootings? I like this kind of broadcast. Please forgive my former cynical attitude (shame on me) and bring on the sunshine. I could get used to this.
Maybe tomorrow’s news will be good too. I can’t wait to see what happens. I might even start to watch more than the weather.
Couldn’t we all use a little Good news today?
