Companies I love.....


Gosh they ship immediately, if not sooner, and they send an order confirmation, an invoice, and a shipping/tracking number confirmation. Why don't ALL companies do this?

Love love love.

Costco employees should not lick ATM cards

Today, at the Costco in Rancho Cordova, California, a Costco employee licked my ATM card.

I'm not kidding.

When I tried to scan my card, the usual happened. It wouldn't scan. This happens a lot. I tried several times, to no avail. The cashier, "Victoria A.", then took my card from me. I thought she was going to scan it at her register, but I was wrong! Instead, she licked her index finger, rubbed it on the magnetic strip on my ATM card, then ran it through the scanner.


I guess she did not notice the look of horror on my face. I don't think I was quick enough to hide it!

To be fair, the scanner DID read the card once the card had been licked. I wonder if the guy behind me in line chose to pay with a check rather than scan his card.

I think Costco should have a policy about employee licking. What do you think?

One dog under the hood?

Apparently a man found a dog under the hood of his car this morning. What was the dog doing there? Chewing on the wires, what else?

Places to buy the Furminator

For those of desperate to look as good as I do, here are a few places you can look to find a Furminator, with links to the item of your dreams:

  • Costco.com

  • The local Super Target (yours may not be as well stocked)

  • Pet Edge (probably best price at least for USA delivery)

  • Your local Petco or Petco.com

  • Your local dog groomer or Self-Server Dog Wash -- we have LaunderDog locally and they are willing to order what they don't have that you want. But, they most likely will order from PetEdge, so you may as well too!

  • eBay and Amazon, they have everything, but you knew that.

  • You could even combine it with some free fun, just attend your local AKC Dog Show -- they always have vendors with many ways to take your $$. (PS: just for Sophie: the CKC)
