HOT TIP: LA TT Needs a Home

I just came across the following Tweet about a sweet Tibetan Terrier in Los Angeles that needs a home:

Lost / found dog needs good home Los Angeles, Tibetan Terrier mix, male See & enter ID: A1096491 Please help!

I followed the link to LA Animal Services and found Rex.

My name is Rex and I am an unaltered male, tan Tibetan Terrier. The shelter thinks I am about 2 years and 0 months old.
I have been at the shelter since Mar 10, 2010.

It appears that Rex is being held at the West Los Angeles Animal Care and Control Center. Can you help find Rex a home?

The Department of Animal Services' telephone number is (888) 452-7381.

Diamonds Are A Dog's Best Friend?

Did you hear about Solly, a sweet rescue dog, that lapped up a $20,000 diamond?

Here's the poop:
ROCKVILLE, Md - One Maryland dog has some expensive taste. He gobbled up a diamond worth $20,000. But the gem wasn't gone forever. His owners just had to wait a few days for it to "reappear."

Me? I'll take Parmesan cheese any day over diamonds. After my post yesterday, I received a message from my cousin Miss Mary:

Above: Pioneer Woman, Miss Mary and her kin at home in Montana

"Well cousin, we eat Reggiano here in Montana and nothing less. Trying chewing the chunk of rind, guaranteed blast of fun. The smooth, waxy beauty of the rind is not to be missed, it has an ancient soul. I like the piece with words, and I want you to have some Reggiano words, too. It is simply a Must."

Right: Miss Mary with her live-in stud Jesse.
Miss Mary, do you bring fresh flowers for him? Make the wine cold for him? Sit by the phone for him? Oh, Jesse!

Well, Cousin Mary, my dad made a Ceasar Salad last night. Julia Child's recipe from the original Caesar's restaurant in Tijuana, Mexico. When she was a kid, Julia and her parents used to drive down to Mexico just to eat at Caesar's. My dad LOVES the original Caesar's salad. I will try to get the recipe for you. Anywho, last night dad used Parmesano Reggiano in his Caesar Salad. He saved a little bit for Roxie, Angus, and me. We weren't so gauche as to chomp on the waxy rind with the words on it. Maybe tomorrow, Miss Mary. Dad microplaned a little over our food. Cousin Mary, do your parents have a microplane grater? I bet they do. They must even have those in Montana, Miss Mary. The microplane also works great for zesting the lemon for my dad's arugula salad.
