My family never owned dogs.  I grew up in a Brooklyn apartment.  I meant you had to walk the dog.  This was my father’s job growing up and he did not enjoy it.  Since as we said at Dad’s memorial like Frank Sinatra, he liked to do things HIS way, we weren’t getting a dog.  Mom tried to soften him up, to no avail.

It would have been my job anyway.  His English friend and colleague Keith Bowden was cured of wanting a dog by his wife Ruby.  She had the brilliant idea of simulating having a dog and walking it by telling him at a certain time of day, “Keith, you need to walk the dog.  A cold rainy night cured him of wanting a dog.

I am accustomed to cats.

About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
