I know the dogs love having us around while they nap and snooze and relax. Suzie was especially thrilled with our presence. I couldn't believe the number of different ways she would flip her body around to remind both of us that she was in need of a serious belly rub. At one point, she stood on her hind legs begging for a belly rub and fell backwards against the couch cushions. We were cracking up. I wish the picture would have come out clearer, but here she is.
|Rub my Belly!!!|
|No, Really RUB MY BELLY!!|
|Chocolate Stained Cooper ... blech|
|Am I seriously still wet?????|
This morning our day was started with a number of people in our group getting fishy emails in regards to our foster dogs. I had a friend who was selling some art on CL and someone was using a very similar scam a couple of years ago. I can't remember exactly how it worked, but it included the need to send an inflated cashiers check by overnight mail to their address. I then think if my friend had "cashed" the check they would then need to return a large portion back to the person who sent it. The cashiers check, of course, is counterfeit and the one cashing is taking the chance of being caught. No matter how anyone replied, this is the response received:

So just a reminder - if an email seems weird, it likely is. I have a pet peeve about people using "i" when they should use "I" so I would have probably refused to adopt to them even if they were on the up and up. ha Doesn't it seem as if the majority of these scamming emails don't know how to capitalize correctly or use decent grammar! :)
