My sister Patty Dannel Taylor visited from back home in Mississippi in November to help us pack and move. In the midst of setting The Blissful Dog's new offices up she opened a container and asked, "What's in here? Potpourri?" and spilled it all over the place. "Uh, no, it's Money's ashes."
She looked SO horrified I have not had it in me to publicly tease her. But, it's been a while, so let the teasing begin. CH. Jackpot! Money, Money Money, CGC, ROM was a truly kind-hearted gentle dog, so I feel sure Money is sitting on the Other Side rolling his eyes and laughing!

Ever since people have shared their lives with dogs, we have been trying to get and keep nasty biting, stinging, disease-carrying bugs away from them and us.
It is said that during the Medieval plagues dogs and cats were both used to attract fleas off of the people and onto them. Seems a bit harsh to me, but if it was get the plague or use my dog as a flea magnet...
Have you ever wondered just how many actual dog breeds are recognized by the different registries. First a quick definition of what a dog registry actually does.
From Good Old Wikipedia...(I condensed) A breed registry is an official list of animals within a specific dog breed whose parents are known. Animals are usually registered by their breeders when they are still young. Such registries usually issue certificates for each recorded animal, called a pedigree, pedigreed animal documentation, or most commonly, an animal's "papers".
