Im guessing your avatar is a pic of your cattle dog? Gorgeous dogs. My pup is an Australian Cattle Dog Australian Shepard Mix. She's pretty, but she has waaaaaaaaaaaaay too much energy for one animal to have. And she does eat pretty much everything. I cant get her to leave toads alone around the house. Just gets Pedigree from me though.
"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."
