Once upon a time in a land far far away (Cleveland) we had a neighbor who absolutely LOVED and ADORED dogs. He and his wife had unfortunately established over time, though, that she was allergic to them. In a bad way allergic. A very bad way. So, it just wasn't possible for them to own or have dogs in their home. To help close up that ungodly doggy-sized hole in his heart, our neighbor used to come into our yard and play with Batman. A lot. Sometimes you would even find them laying in the grass together, and our neighbor would be smelling Batman's paws.
Apparently (he claimed, anyway) there is nothing better than the smell of grassy and sweet puppy paws. Well, alrighty then!
So, just sayin'.....
