Rub A PDub Dub I Patdd


Making your way around a race course in a floating bathtub has become a Labor Day Weekend tradition on Pensacola Beach.
Pretty paddlers Chassidy Potter, left, and Alysia Bradley, practice shallow water maneuvers in Santa Rosa Sound in a custom designed
racing tub. Since both are Bamboo Willie's bartenders, they will be serving frosty drinks to thirsty patrons during the Anything That
Floats and Bathtub Races, Sunday, September 2, so they tried out the tubs just for fun. Entry fees from the races are donated to the
Pensacola Beach Chamber of Commerce. The races are part of the three day Jamaican Fest held on the Boardwalk. For more, see story,
Page 2.









Sticks and stones may break
my bones, but words can never
hurt me.
Nottrue, says my inner word
child who keeps begging to come
out and talk bout the word
"crazy."
She says she has new infor-
mation and can prove beyond a
doubt that words can hurt. O.K.,
so come out. What's new?
How many ways can you
describe a person who appears
to be a bit looney? How about
crazy as a March Hare? Not a
January or July Hare. Just a March
Hare. The hare is a long legged,
long eared animal who has a di-
vided upper lip. The split upper
lip apparently has no significance
in the craziness of the Hare. He
can often be seen hanging out in
Mr. McGregor's garden with his
cousins in the rabbit family.
Rabbits are a gentler version
of the hare. They have long ears,
not-so-long legs, no split lip. Their
fur is soft and cuddly. These cre-
dentials qualify them for impor-
tant jobs such as delivering
chocolate eggs at Easter time.
Hares, on the other hand, con-
tinue to get a bad rap. Did you
ever accuse someone ofhaving a
hare brained idea? Did you mis-
spell the word, and call the idea
hair brained? This is a common
error when people think the idea
has less value than a hair shaft.
Nope. It's the good old hare's
burden to bear.
Celebrity rabbit, Bugs
Bunny, denies any relationship to


any of these species. He's too
busy dodging Elmer Fudd and
stealing carrots to get into family
discussions.
So, let the hares go. Maybe,
they haven't heard the depress-
ing rumor. Let them play and run
about in the March wind, acting
crazy,
Try some other expression
such as "crazy as Old Nick's hat
band." Should I even go there? I
thinkI will because I really would
like to know who Old Nick was
and ifh head a magical, mysteri-
ous band on his hat. What kind
of hat would Old Nick wear any-
way?Never having met OldNick,
I don't know how he came into
this story, so there's no discus-
sion. What's to discuss?
Did you ever say someone
was nutty as a fruitcake? This
saying seems to have some value
if you consider nuts as crazy.
There are so many nuts in a fruit-
cake, etc. etc. etc.
One of my favorite sayings
is "batty as a bedbug." I have
never come face to face with a
bedbug either, so what do I know
about being batty? Besides,
where does batty come from a
baseball bat or the little, black
things that hang upside down in
caves. Sorry, I went there.
Then, falling into line are the
whimsical descriptions of not quiet
crazy just a little off the wall such
as lie wasn't the sharpest knife in
the drawer. That is self explanatory,
I think. That's if you get into com-
paring people to silverware.

Barefoot on the Beach


Dear Friends and Neighbors,
Jan Scruggs was a dear
friend and dance partner. She
loved Pensacola Beach and was
making plans to come back to her
condo at Portside Villas. Unfor-
tunately, that was not to be.
Please take a minute to remember
the good times we all shared with
her. Take something special you
learned from her and apply it to
your life in remembrance of her.
She loved all of you and wanted
more than anything to be back on
Pensacola Beach.
At Jan's memorial service on
Monday, August 20 in New Or-
leans, Kim McPherson composed
and sang this song:
Angel on Earth
Our aching hearts are burst-
ing to speak the gift that is you
You are the one so lovely, so
gifted and so true.
And you are the face of the
sunshine, on a cold and lonely
day,
The caressing breeze of the


willows and the branches as they
sway.
We open our hands and set
you free, an angel on earth is not
meant to be.
Sofly home angel we can't
hold you here. But pleaseforgive
us if we shed a tear
When life's highway gave
you traffic, your learned how to
fly
And that's what makes it
hard here, so hard to say
goodbye.
Thank you for showing us
good times and howfun our lives
can be.
Thank you for sharing your
laughter and for dancing free
with me.
Fly away

Remember Jan's husband,
Guy, and her family in your
thoughts and prayers.

Marta and RickRay
Pensacola Beach, FL


Or how about "she's not ex-
actly a rocket scientist? What
does that imply? She's a little
short of genius?
Or how about the game de-
scriptions? He's not playing with
a full deck or he has lost all his

marbles. Poor him, obviously a
born loser.
How about one word defini-
tions? Daffy. Looney. Dingle-
berry There are ajillion words like
that floating around.

lots of fish and caught up on all
the Beach gossip.
BAGMAN
Joe Woodall, president of
the Pensacola Beach Optimists
Club, had a busy Saturday, Au-
gust 18, bagging groceries at
Bruno's for a good cause. The
Optimists were raising money so
they could host their dinner for
the deputies, firefighters, life
guards and park rangers on the
Beach.
BIRTHDAY BBQ
Marilyn McDonald was the
hostess of a Birthday Bash and
BBQ for her husband, Tracy and
her friend, Helen Randle. Both
Leo's partied it up successfully.
PIERCE GETS BYPASS
John Traer whose beach
name is Pierce is recovering from
triple bypass surgery. Deb Fried-
man is taking her former
housemate, Pierce, home with her
to speed his trip toward health.
They are both going to eat
healthy meals, according to Deb.
BACKFROMVANCOUVER
Sharon and Buddy Scruggs
have returned from a summer trip


to Canada. Sharon reports that
Vancouver was good, but she
was happy to return to the Beach.
GOINGTOPLESS
Cathy Long is cruismg the
beach with her top down in her
new Volkswagen convertible.
There's no struggling with the top.
She showed the Lively Ladies last
week that it's all electronic and
folds neatly into the trunk.
SHARON'S SHAMAN
Sharon Mattair shared an
unexplained phenomenon with
her friends who attended the
Splash Party at her home. A fasci-
nating impression which looks
like aNativeAmerican warrior has
appeared on an upstairs window
in Sharon's home.At first she was
startled by it, but now she likes it.
Don't get near it with Windex.
NOMOREROOKIES
Carlee Amberson had to re-
mind her mom Kristin that she is
a first grader. Seems Kristin tried
to pick up the kindergarten school

Thomas Fitzgerald and friend
Matt Schang did the West Coast
in style according to Thomas'
mom, Jackie Henderson. They
saw the sights up and down the
coast of California. The boys
even surfed the wild, west coast
waves. Thomas and Matt are sev-
enth graders at Gulf Breeze
Middle.
SANDI'SHOME
Sandi Johnson is back on the
Beach after a quick trip to Seattle
to see her husband, Johnny who
is working on the West Coast right
now. She says summer is beauti-
ful in Washington State. As she
tapped her toe to Clark and Com-
pany at Tuesday's Bands on the
Beach she commented that she
attended a Tuesday night free
concert i Seattle which was all
organ music. Better to be back and
rockin' on the Beach.


Bettye Davis who formerly
worked at Beachside 33 quickly
answered the last trivia question.
She is the winner of the t-shirt. The
question was "Many different
businesses have been in the
Beach's historic district. What was
the name of the shop located in
the building just before Danah's
Hair Studio moved there?"
The correct answer was
Beachside 33, an upscale gift shop
which featured objects of art.
Bettye is an active member of the
Pensacola Beach Woman's Club,
although she moved to Pensacola
after Ivan.
A note to Dave Wheeler.
Sorry, your answer came in first,
but Dinah's Shore Shop was not


correct. It was located on
Pensacola Beach Blvd. at the spot
which now contains a large ice
vending machine. Try, try again.
Here itis. "Howmanymiles of
public streets are there on
Pensacola Beach." Clue: answer
does not include internal roads
such as the Sugar Bowl. This is an
easy one.
Multiple choice:
(A) 15.62 miles
(B) 20.96 miles
(C) 32.45 miles
Be the first to e-mail the cor-
rect answer and you win an Is-
land Times t-shirt. Sendanswers
to islandtimes @bellsouth.net
with "Trivia" in the subject line
before 5 p.m. September 5.

Labor Day Just the phrase
alone creates an instant rise inmy
anxiety level I know it's really
for recognition and appreciation
for the laborers of this Nation.
God knows, we do need them and
to we do need to show our appre-
ciation. But, forme andthosesuf-
fering from 'displacia', it is a re-
m ider of all the uncompleted la-
borinourhomes Displacia(pro-
nounced dis-play-sha) is a word
coined by my brother-m-law, Rod
in Georgia shortly after Hurricane
Ivan, when we were ALL dis-
placedfrom ourhomes Thisisa
condition that should be recog-
nized by the medical profession
and tranquilizers should be the
prescribed medication.
I've decided, the next time
around I can live with bare
sheetrock walls and plywood
floors. Who needs paint and
fancy floors when the real beauty
lives right outside our windows
already? Anyway, God Bless the
laborers.
The Mystic Krewe of
Nerieds, led by reigning Queen
of Bling Ella Hess, hosted their
annual Splash Party at Sharon
Mattair's beautifully "redone"
home recently. ARoyal appear-
ance was made by King Art
Parrish, who left his lovely wife,
Charlyle to play Best party of
the summer! Allwomen!! Inthe
beginning, the Splash Party was
open to all with water guns and
usually held at whichever local
establishment would perm it such
boisterous celebration. However,
much like all our events on the
Island, it became too large and
GlendaMcCleary cametothelast
one with a real fire hose attached
to a real fire truck! Well, nobody
could ever top that, so the event
became exclusive to Krewe mem-
bers only. This year, they so gra-
ciously extended invitations to all
Krewes (females only) including
the SOBs. Thanks Ladies, for
your generosity, thoughtfulness
and love of fun.
I have to say what a joy it
was to visit with our own SOB,
Liz Waters-Hewson on her annual
beach vacation Our little Lizzie
is a baby no more and has spread
the spirit of the SOBs from coast
to coast! Liz is not only an ex-
cellent Marine Corps wife to
Harry and mother to little Harry,


she has also been instrumental in
supporting a fund, where none ex-
isted, to benefit Marines without
spouses. I was privileged to hear
the story of how the idea began
inher "Dirty Joe's replica Bar" lo-
cated in her garage. I know that
she has talked about this in her
Lizzards Tongue column, but this
is very important to the Marines
it supports and bears repeating.
It fills a gap between married and
unmarried marines. It pays for
and enables parents or other
loved ones (of these young
wounded veterans) to be at the
side of their beloved sons and
daughters. Most of these are still
really children looking for their
place inthe world and strivingto
do the right thing by fighting for
our freedom. We all know how
much love helps the healing pro-
cess All donations are 100% tax
deductible.
Oh yeah, our little Lizzie is a
real bone-a-fide grown-up woman
and the truest of SOBs. So, Liz,
even with all the trophies you've
won, the records you've broken,
and for all the many times you've
made us proud, we will never be
more proud of you than we are
right now! You have not only
found your place in the world,
you have made the world a better
place by being m it Sweet Sister
Liz, this one's for you
Okay, lets cook
Brie Kisses
2/3 lb. Brie Cheese
32 Phyllo pastry cups
Red & Green Pepper Jelly

CutBrie into 32, one-half inch
cubes and place in freezer for 30
minutes. Letpastry cups thaw to
room temp. Preheat oven to 400
degrees. Place pastry cups on
greased baking pan and place one
cube of brie in center of each one.
Bake 10 minutes until pastry
edges are golden and brie is
melted. Remove and immediately
top each with red or green pep-
per jelly (or topping of your
choice). These are beautiful, easy
and scrumptious!
Happy Labor Day Be safe
and remember "to you it's a six-
pack, to me it's a support group".
See ya inthe kitchen... ..

READY FOR
SOMETHING DIFFERENT?
If you prefer white wine over red,
chances are that you are quiet familiar
with Chardonnay If you want an alter-
native to this vastly popular wine, you
might want to give some thought to
Viognier This white wine varietal has its
origins in France's Rhone Valley. While
Viognier was once relatively rare in
California, t is nowconsideredto every
popular and fashionable among white-
wine aficionados. It exudes floral, peach,
apricot, pear, and melon aromas, and it
may also offer a touch of spice. When
aged in oak barrels, Viognier displays
buttery aroma and flavor and a creamy
texture inthe mouth, much like similarly
treated Chardonnays Overall, Viogner
is a good match with spicy foods and
grilled dishes.
HINT Oaky Viognier stands up well to
meat, cheese, and dishes with strong
flavors.
Ifyou are a fan ofChardonnay, and a lot
ofpeople are,then come to Beach Wnes
andLiquors, Inc and checkoutViognler
We suggest trying newwines every now
and again. You never know when you
might discoveryour next "favorite" wine.

fl r ross rin Fh anW, m."".





By Dr. Chuck Randle
Pastor, Pensacola Beach Community Church


The history of Labor Day is
interesting. It was started in 1882,
but became a moving force in
America as Samuel Gompers, in
1886, became the founder of the
American Federation of Labor
and served as president for 37
years. Samuel Gompers, son of
poor immigrants from Holland,
emigrated to America in 1863, was
apprenticed to a shoemaker at the
age of 10, but changed trades and
became a cigar maker.
Life was not easy in the
crowded slums of New York.
Large cigar making shops were
rare, and much of the work was
done in hundreds of sweatshops
which were often set up in the
crowded apartments where the
workers lived. To help their par-
ents eke out a living, thousands
of little children worked in the
New York sweatshops and facto-
ries. Samuel Gompers worked tire-
lessly to eliminate sweat shops,

as well as poor working condi-
tions, and poor wages, for the
American worker.
Labor Day, then, began as a
tribute to those men and women
who added significantly to the
highest standard of living and the
greatest production the world
has ever known. Gompers said it
is different from any other holi-
day because "Labor Day...is de-
voted to no man, living or dead,
to no sect, race, or nation."
The emphasis has changed
over the years and, in many ar-
eas, is not even observed, and in
places where it is observed, is
often seen as a day of rest, but to
many of us it is a day of "labor"
as we finish up those projects that
went undone through the sum-
mer. However we may celebrate
it, we cannot minimize the contri-
butions workers have made to the
strength, prosperity, and well-be-
ing of our Nation, and still do.

Playing too many hands
The minute players sit down

strategy

mertime brings lots of dangers
besides nasty sunburns. Most
people don't realize that hair can
bumjust as easily as their skin or
scalp. When hair is damaged, the
cuticle is popped open, causing
the hair to be fried or severely
damaged. Fried hair can also be
from too much time in salt water
or chlorine, environmental toxins,
too many chemical treatments
(straighteners, perms, bleaching),
heat styling tools, especially flat
irons. I have seen so many teen-
agers with broken hair due to the
over use of this tool! Excessive
use of products, containing too
much alcohol or silicone- a little
goes a long way. Over teasing is
another one, along with lack of
getting a regular trim.
Now that we have covered
the most common reasons, let's
look at the best way to fix fried
hair Cut it off Yes, you can try
and save fried hair, but do you
really want to? The reality is that
it just cannot be repaired. Once
your hair has gotten to a certain
stage of damage, you might be
able to mask the problems, but
you can never restore your hair
to a pre-fried stage. You can
spend infinite amounts of money
attempting this, but know that it
will never be the same. It may be

painful to cut or trim, but in the
long run it gives your hair a bet-
ter chance for full recovery as it
grows back in. Of course, the
choice should always be yours,
never let your hairdresser pres-
sure you into cutting more than
you are comfortable with. You
can camouflage itby going a little
darker with your color, but that's
adding another chemical. Your
damaged ends probably will not
hold color anyway.
Here are some things to
try: 1)Whenyouare onthebeach
or out by the pool, mix sunscreen,
leave-in conditioner and some
distilled water in a spray bottle.
Put on your hair for protection. 2)
Drink lots of water. When your
body is dehydrated, your hair is
too, (Frozen margaritas don't
count) 3) Get aregulartrim. Every
six to eight weeks, even if it'sjust
1/8 inch. 4) Lay off the heat! Blow
drying and flat iron are just a bad
as overuse of chemicals. 5) Deep
condition at least once every two
weeks. There are thousands of
products on the market for this.
Try a few until you find the ones
you like! They are not going to
hurt, that's for sure.
Here's to Healthy Hair and a
Happy Labor Day! See you at the

Moving? Rebulding? Here's
an idea" Take a fresh look at how
you live, and in what rooms.
What makes you happy or sad.
Imagine yourself surrounded
with new colors, new furnishings,
differentviews. Think about truly
making the spaces you live inspe-
cial, entertaining, luxurious, and
just for you.
If your wife, husband, or sig-
nificant other has special colors,
styles, antiques, or keepsakes,
think about building a room's de-
sign, decor, and light to accom-
modate them. Think about
themes, then merge the colors
and styles into an overall feeling
that makes you feel simply won-
derful. When you enter the door
you should get that 'ooohh,
aaahhhh' feeling!
To share the good things,
and to make the ill fitting ones
better, look at how you can en-
velop the likes and dislikes of a
couple, and produce a happy
home.
If you live alone, be selfish'
Indulge in your personal prefer-
ences, needs, luxuries, and the
things that make you smile!
If you are a sports nut, and
he's into movies, merge a space
for an entertainment room with a
sports motif. Combine both of
your favorites, of course!

fspo's Surf Report


For the last few weeks I
have been reading the massive
coverage on professional ath-
letes strange behaviors foot-
ball players killing dogs, base-
ball players breaking world
records while on steroids,
countless gambling and sex
scandals and some murders sur-
rounding sports we call orga-
nized. What's going on here?
We get David Beckem here
in the U.S. to promote soccer or
football or what ever they want
to call it, and the first thing he
does is pose with his wife half
naked in the magazines. What
does this have to do with
sports. What do kids learn from
that?
Is the message, "hey, play
sports and be famous with a
pretty wife. Be rich and get ar-
rested one day?"
People called surfers,
skateboarders and the like
criminals for years. We were the
sub-culture of sports. Ren-
egades.
I sure don't see the scan-
dals in our sport No steroids,
no dog killers, no spice girl
wives!
In fact most pro surfers are
clean living people. They


The Hero
sample different cultures and
try to stay in tip-top shape for
their sport. They give back to
the art of surfing.
The X Games this year was
incredible. Top notch perform-
ers at the top of their game, but
most people had no idea the
Gameswereon Theyjustwatch
football and baseball and don't
even know what else is happen-
ing in the wide world of sports.
Oh, they know all the
names and teams They yell
and scream at the TV, and yes
they fall for the hype
These so-called pros take
the money and make million-
aire fools of themselves We
don't have to buy into that.
Granted not all professional
athletes are the same. Some
are valuable people making a
contribution to sports and to
their communities

straight down a vertical ramp
and walked away. (Let's see
David Beckem do that)
As usual, no coverage. It's
okay to love a sport and to sup-
port it, but please consider all
sports and what they offer
All I am saying is the more
we feed this professional beast
the bigger it gets The more
money it makes, the more scan-
dal it produces. If these play-
ers were making an honest liv-
ing and were paid like the rest
of us, then they would all be
gone by now. It's the money, the
glory and the press What's so
sporting about that?

Warming Warning


Wake up Planet Earthlings!
Earth's temperature makes a big
difference. Three million years
ago, Earth was 3.6 degrees
Farenheit to 5.4 degrees Farenheit
(2-3 degrees Celsius) warmer Sea
levels were 80 feet higher. Ap-
proximately 125,000 years ago,
Earthwas 1.8 degrees F (1 degree
C) warmer Sea levels were 20 feet
higher.
Since the onset of the Indus-
trial Revolution, global emissions
are rising at an unprecedented
rate. Both Greenland and
Antartica are melting. Greenland
has more ice today than it did
125,000 years when it melted.
Antartica has more landlocked
ice than Greenland. So given the
current greenhouse emissions
into the atmosphere, the Earth's
average temperature will rise by
2.7 degrees F (1.5 degrees C) by
2150.
By 2100 itwill hit5.4 degrees
F (3 degrees C). We know that an
increase of a few degrees in tem-
perature can lead us into a cata-
clysmic nightmare on Earth.
Global warmingby definition
is the Earth absorbing far more
heat than it is emitting into space.
Is it a natural occurring event? Yes.
Is human activity on this planet
escalating the event? Yes.
What is heating Earth?
Greenhouse gases which include
carbon dioxide, carbon, waterva-
por, methane, and sulfate aersols
to name a few.
What concerns most scien-
tists, engineers and environmen-
talists9 The unknown tipping
points No one can identify at
what point the chmate will go into
overdrive.
What will be global
warming's impact on our planet?
It will affect health, agriculture,
the environment, energy, water
and our way of living.
What can be done?
> Set up energy efficient
homes and commercial buildings.
> Build renewable sources i.e.
wind turbines.
> Capture the carbon diox-
ide from existing plants and store
it underground.
Build an additional 500 hun-
dred nuclear power plants.
Re-legislate and build re-
processing plants for nuclear
wastes and spent fuel rods.
Build triple hybrid cars with
batteries, solar panels and gas as
back-up. (Note" Lithium polymer
ionbatteries can recharge 80% in


5 minutes. .-
> Stop deforestation and
plant trees.
Who is taking action?
Florida's Governor, Charlie Crist,
has set up a team on Energy and
Climate Change. This twenty-one
member team includes a repre-
sentative from Florida Power &
Light in addition to representa- -
tives from various Florida com-
munities and industries. Phase
one of their Action Plan will in- .-
clude recommendations to the
legislature to enhance energy
and conservation. Phase two will
focus on carbon capture and
storage along with coordination
of a long term policy to reduce
greenhouse gases.

ITLIZARW TONU by EHewson


Fourteen years ago the most
soulful pair of brown eyes
changed my life. It was a gor-
geous 70 degree summer day in
San Diego when Harry, my hus-
band, and I decided to drive to
Balboa Park and check out a
group called FOCUS (Friends of
the County Animal Shelters). I
was not interested in adopting any
animal. I had just buried our dog,
Roy, that spring and I was happy
to be free of fleas and fur balls
under my couches. I had come
only to look and to express inter-
est in volunteering my time with
the organization. Neither was ac-
complished.
As we rounded a curve in the
parking lot, my husband pointed
to a painfully thin, blonde, shep-
herd-lab looking dog who had
commandeered 1 -ne rf md 1-_:
ofpotato cl r ... ... .11. 1..
fenseless child. In a not-to-be-ar-
gued with tone, he exclaimed,
"That's the dog. That's the dog for
us."
Before Icouldevenreact, my
door had been opened and I was
being ordered to "go get him."
Tough words coming from a guy
who was getting ready to deploy.
"Excuse me, is that dog up
for adoption?" I asked a FOCUS
volunteer.
"You mean Willard?"
"Yes, that one over there with
the potato chips all over his
snout."
"Certainly, now let me ask
you a few questions."
And so she began with the
normal prying questions: name,
address, own or rent, house or
condo, place of employment,
marital status, children, husband's
name, employer and any previous
pet ownership. I could almost feel
Willard curled up by my feet,
sleeping and snoring with con-
tentment, until I answeredthe last
two questions.
"Oh we don't really like to
adopt our animals out to military
families. And your previous dog
was hit by a car while under your
husband's care. I'm sorry Miss
you don't meet our standards,"
she said very defensively.
I was stunned, but I had my
orders. I wasn't leaving without
Willard. Somehow I had already
made a telepathic promise to a
dog that I had yet to walk, pet or
talk to that his life was about to
change for the better. I reminded
myself to be polite and positive.
"Ma'am, do you see that


brand new Range Rover that is
being driven around in circles
(parking was at a premium that
day), well that car was purchased
so our dog wouldn't have to ride
cramped up in the back of a Ford
Probe. And the man driving it is
my husband who jumped off a
bridge to save a dog's life, a dog
he didn't even know. Please, now
where do I sign for ownership of
Willard?"
She handed me a stack of
papers to read regarding Willard's
two and one half years of miser-
able abuse at the hands of his
original owners: fractured back
legs, malnourished, synthetic rope
embedded in his neck, BBs
lodged into his spine, surface
bums where gasoline was poured
onto his fur to kill fleas and ticks.
The latter offense prompted
neighbors to call the police which
landed him in the animal shelter
and then into the hands of FO-
CUS. It was then I truly under-
stood why his adoption had to be
perfect.
"One last question, where
will he sleep tonight?" she asked.
Without hesitation, I an-
swered, "In bed with my husband
andme."
She begged me never to give
up on him and said it might take
awhile for him to adjust. "Look
at his eyes," she said. It seemed
to be my day to do as I was told.
"He has a great spirit."
Willard and I rode home to-
gether in the very back of the
Range Rover. While sitting in
mindnumbing Southern Califor-
nia traffic, I changed his name to
Charlie.
New life, new name. He
threw up on me. I didn't get mad
or evengag. Thatnight he fell out
of bed. I picked him up, gave him
extra kisses and he snuggled back
down between Harry and me. The
nextmominghe followedme into
the bathroom and relieved him-
self over the drain in the walk-in
shower. I guess six weeks in a
cage at the local shelter will do
that to an animal. Harry thought
it was clever. I hoped it was a
habit that could easily be broken.
Within 48 hours, Charlie and
I had an appointment to see the
vet. He was not very encourag-
ing. He gave Charlie the once
over, told me to save my money
because at most "this dog will
only live another six months." I
found a new vet who surgically
removed the rope fibers from


Charlie's neck. His legs had
somewhat healed themselves and
the BBs were there to stay. He
also put Charlie on a very strict
eating regiment and didn't want
me to get my hopes up about
Charlie ever having a beautiful
coat of fur. I wouldleam from my
mother that Charlie's diet should
consist of brown rice, ground
beef, eggs and wheat germ. In no
time at all,
Charlie's weight
doubled and his
coat was soft and
shiny. Even his
underbelly
sprouted fur.
Charlie's body
was finally catch-
ing up to his spir-
ited personality.
Yes, Roy
Rogers had Bul-
let; Timmy,
Lassie; and the
101st Cavalry,
Rin Tin Tin. But
I had Charlie. As
an integral part
of the family,
Charlie would
move cross
country five times and reside in
seven different houses. He would
welcome and outlive Sally, an-
other mix-breed mutt that I res-
cued. He would eventually settle
into his rightful and dutiful posi-
tion as the family dog when Harry
IV was born.
He would bark and growl at
any stranger who came near me


unless that person was delivering
food. Then he would wag his tail
and be all cute and cuddly. He
would never use the shower as a
toilet again, but he would shed
that beautiful blonde coat on any-
thing he walked by. He would
never experience an empty dog
dish, a harsh word or a swat on
the bottom. Charlie would rise up
to become a dog's dog. The envy
