Oh yes.  I remember you - glad you wrote again!

We loved reading about Pav before!

You'd think it was that she knew they were bad for her, except for 
the way she behaves when there's chocolate around!  That I know is 
very bad for them, but she loves her dog chocolate, and there's 
little doubt she'd gobble up any chocolate she could get hold of.

Sounds right to me.  And I forgot - the girls correct me when I use 
"the d-o-g word".  They say the correct term is Canine Companion.  (I 
think it came from "Sister, Sister" on the tv, but I thought it funny 
in light of Dogsbody.)

Glad to hear from you again, Janice.
