Nose Down, Eyes Up

Hello to Everyone,

We took Roxie for her periodic chiropractic adjustment yesterday, and Dr. Maria told us Roxie’s back is doing really well, so our next appointment is set for eight weeks out. Roxie still gets agitated when we pull into the parking lot, but no where near as much as when we first started taking her for adjustments.

I have to tell you about a book I just finished Nose Down, Eyes Up: A Novel by Merrill Markoe. It is pure entertainment, and as a dog lover I found it hilarious. For me this was a very fast read, and the story was clever enough that I didn’t want to put the book down.

The leading character, Gil, has four dogs, Jimmy, Cheney, Fruity, and Dink. Gil has learned animal communication from his girlfriend Sara. He overhears Jimmy holding court with the other dogs, teaching them the finer arts of human manipulation, hence the title Nose Down, Eyes Up. The dogs also wax philosophical about the benefits of eating garbage and other delights, chasing balls, and peeing inside or outside.

I must add, if adult language and situations offend you, then this book is probably not for you.

By the way, if you have any extra rain you would like to get rid of, please send it down to San Antonio. We could really use it!
