OMG LOLerz i m SUCH a mess

I found another book in the laundry room of my apartment building this week. What can I say? I saw "Betty White" and was immediately drawn to it.



However, I promptly got all verklempt when I read the jacket. The book is about Tom Sullivan's guide dog, Dinah. When she got too old to do her job, Betty White adopted her.
...when Dinah reached the age of eleven, she began to lose her edge. Her eyes were no longer as sharp, her step not as sure. The once-assured guide dog became defensive and hesitant. Although Tom hated the idea of working with any dog but Dinah, it seemed to be his only choice, and [a new guide dog] joined the family. Dinah, however, was not ready to settle back into a life of leisure [...] while an interloper took over her job and her master. She stopped eating, began hiding away, and simply gave up on life. Yet Dinah's story has a whole new beginning... and her name is Betty White.
Oh, believe me, I was nearly in tears when I read the final part:
Here [...] is how Betty rescued this gallant lady in distress and how caring, courageous Dinah became a full-fledged member of Betty's family overnight, with a brand-new job to do. Most of all, here is the essence of Dinah, a dog who made a positive difference in every life she touched.
I wish I had time to read this book. I wish I had enough money to quit my job and start an assistance dog foundation. I wish that everyone in the world was as nice to animals as Betty White.

I don't understand just like you don't understand RSS. I'm really confused.

Let me get a white board, six colours of markers, and some Post-it notes. I'll show you.

Dickey: quit it! Betty is my hero.

I love Betty White sooo much. That story would totally make me bawl my eyes out.

It's totally like Homestar's Lil Brudder

There is a really nice blind man that takes his guide dog Nate to the offleash dog park that I go to. One day he showed me the pictures of all the guide dogs he has had over the years. When they retire (at about 11) his brother adopts them to live a happy retirement on his farm.

^^Why the fuck does a blind guy carry pictures? Ok, more importantly- next time you see him, ask to see the pictures and switch them out with prono pics. That would be so awesome.

LOL at BUtchie - that was my comment about the blind man, btw.

Now Betty White - wasn't she the really "feisty" and "free-thinking" one on the Golden Girls?

TBL - No, Betty was the farm girl. Blanche was the whore. Dorothy was the voice of reason, and Sofia was the Italian mamma.

MadameR - I would have cried too. I never thought about what happens to old guide dogs

Sounds like a made for TV movie of the week to me. Except that everyone has to be dressed in over the top, 80's, Dallas-esque fashions.

I envision Betty wearing a headband, lots of lip gloss, and a shimmery white outfit with shoulder pads that would put the NFL to shame, the shirt tied at the waist with a belt wide enough to be used in a factory conveyor.

The dog would be played by ALF.
