    Tiptoin’ - Straw dogs
    I am not a dog owner. I may never be a dog owner. Or I may. There is work involved with dog ownership, and I prefer my efforts be directed elsewhere. I have a limited capacity to care, I can’t care about every single issue. I concentrate on the things I can care about in a day. I like dogs. I do not pass up an opportunity to pet a dog. I believe stories about dogs and their devotion, good sense and love.

    SYRACUSE-Memorial Day is over and everyone has returned from the long four-day holiday weekend. The highways were busy and the one thing that was on everyone’s mind was how many accidents and fatalities occurred during a weekend of fun.
