People do weird things with their dogs, for their dogs, and because of their dogs. You know the types; the ones that carry their dogs in their specially designed $500 a stitch baby skin purses. Perhaps you’ve seen the ones that have costumes made up for their precious little carpet wetters. Little fluffy yappers trotting around with Christmas sweaters or scuba suits. Wait, what? Scuba suits? Indeed.
When I was in high school I used to draw Garfield all the time. I religiously read the comics every morning before I dragged myself to class, and I bought all the compilations so I could enjoy the comic in color every day. In short, I am a fan of that huge, fat cat. Much to my joy, Garfield lives; and in Italy no less!
Introducing the latest in mail carrier defense weaponry; The Water pistol. At least that is what the brave group of mail bringers in Madison Wisconsin are having to resort to. Apparently postal workers serving a neighborhood near Owen Conservation Park are being attacked daily by a pack of wild turkeys. Everyone has seen the movies about dogs chasing the mailman, but who would have thought turkeys would be the new super villains? These turkeys are still at large and have been accused of pecking their postal victims, as well as stabbing with spurs on their heels. One turkey actually climbed in the open door of one of the mail trucks and assaulted the driver, leaving the driver with scratch wounds.
