Anyway, he posted on his Facebook Page that he is INSOLENCE DEPENDENT Those of you who have read through my posts know that I too am Insolence Dependent and it shows.Just thought I would share a great pun (a real groaner) and I think that sometimes, in order to get what I need from the medical industrial complex, my Insolence Dependent nature helps.See More

My neighbor has 3 pugs she rescued from a puppy mill - Teeny, Tiny, and Bitsy. All were terribly abused, but once they found out they were safe have become extremely affectionate. Shen she is sour of town, I walk them on a triple leash and they prance around like royalty.
If it's below 30 degrees, they have to wear their sweaters. If it's below 10 degrees, they have to wear dog boots, which they do not like. Bitsy hides under the bed and has to be lured out with a treat.
Then Tiny also wants a treat but he is obese and on a diet.
So by the time I get them ready I'm almost exhausted.

I love pugs!!!!
