Will they take away a star on their web site? And, is one of those bowls chipped? And people say being owned by a pet is such a chore! You get half-claw feet-massages and head-to-chin butts in return! And a dog will wash any part you put forth, even if it’s a foot and not a people-paw or a chin-to-forehead rough-clothed tongue-bath. Better those you hooked-beak gaudy and noisy parrot!

“Inna Sixteen-Quart Soup Pot”

(July 30, 2018)

poached catfish stew in

oyster-and-chicken broths base

with veggies and herbs*
