...and women and children of course...ah yes, our beloved canines. What is it about a dog anyway? They never talk much about themselves, yet love to listen to us, and they act interested with what we have to say, they agree incessantly, are pleased with what we do versus what we should do, and provide unconditional love, security, and warmth (unlike the puppy peeing on your lap!). One minute you want to shoot them for tearing out the new bush you just planted, then the next, you inherit a fulltime job when you sratch their neck.

It was a reasonable question from my husband based on the fact that I was 6 months pregnant with #2 son and every rollercoaster ride we came had an obnoxiously visible sign that warned pregnant women not to ride. My nurse friend and I decided, "hey, that baby is in the best shock-absorber ever made, sure it's OK if I ride." (Confession-I escaped the rollercoaster "police" by wearing a bulky coat to hide the obvious).
