Saga of a woman old enough to know better who lets her life be governed by the ridiculous hobby of breeding and showing dogs, musing on life, the twenty first century, Cameron and his mini-me, and the occasional sheep.

When I was young I used to just love Manfredd Mann

Now I love showing dogs.

Or do I....?

"Here she comes, just a-swaying down the mat
Singing Doo Wah Diddy Diddy Dum Diddy Doo
With her stifles slipping and her pasterns flat,
Singing Doo Wah Diddy Diddy Dum Diddy Doo.

Her coat`s wool
Her head`s coarse
Her tail`s down, her bum`s up, and she looks just like a horse.

Wowowowowo – I knew she was going to win
Wowowowowo – It was all arranged before she came in –

Soon she`ll have puppies, looking just like her
Singing Doo Wah Diddy Diddy Dum Diddy Doo
Disaster areas covered in fur
Singing Doo Wah Diddy Diddy Dum Diddy Doo

And they`ll sell
For big bucks
And they`ll win, just like her – don`t you think the whole thing sucks?

Singing Doo Wah Diddy Diddy - why do we bother?"

(No, it doesn`t refer to any one actual dog.)

No Papillons were harmed during the making of this parody.
. . . and no reputations!
You manage to say in a few humorous words what usually takes me a full hour of ranting.
