Last week, when we were in the summer-TV doldrums, we clicked on "The Wind and The Lion," a watchable Sean Connery movie about a Bedouin revolt in Morocco in the early 1900s. There was a scene when the U.S. Marines marched into Tangier to take on the bad guys, and they quick-marched and double-stepped through the the souks and bazaars with fixed bayonets and so on. I thought I would try that with Ray, and it worked! The pace was manageable, and he kept up smartly. Semper Fi Ray!
When we got home, I went upstairs to shower and shave. As I was toweling off, I heard violent paper rustling. I ran downstairs and there was Ray tearing through a stash of old bread we had saved for the ducks down on the lake. After useless BAHH-ing it was off to doggy day care and the rest of the day.
