POST-GAZETTE, JANUARY 15, 2010 Page 7' You can email your questions to to the attention of Freeway. Don't forget folks, Freeway is not a vet, so please keep the questions light-hearted! Thanks. I can't believe a whole year has gone by and here we are 2010 a brand new year. I wonder how many of my pooch friends realize that a whole year has gone by? What can I do to make a dif- ference in my life? Or even better, what can I do to make myself happy (1) Retire (2) Take a trip to Florida? (3) Give my notice at my job? (4) Clean out my office and throw a hint I like to take life easy. How can I explain to my boss that I am getting old I mean in dog years I am 70 years old and in another year I'll be 77 years old. Wow! Where have all my years gone? Maybe I should think with a positive feeling in another few months it will be March and then Spring and I'll be sitting by the water- front toasting my paws by the water and relaxing ... I realize if we don't take one day at a time and enjoy ev- ery minute of the day we are missing something. I should look out from my office win- dow more often and watch everyone walking by and wave. That will give me something to do beside work all day. I know what will make me happy. It may not make my boss happy but I am going to do itl I am going to ask for a pay raise. I am sure my human companion can use some extra cash. I think I deserve it. I work very hard pounding on those computer keys all day. My nails kill me at the end of the day. Bad enough I have to go to the vet's every six weeks and have them cut so I can keep them nice and trim when I bang on the com- puter keys. How many pooches feel like I do? Well I don't think Harry does, he is busy chasing his ball all day in his apartment and Jake sleeps all day waiting for his human companion to come home. I suppose I am the only pooch that works for a living. Why is that? How did I ever apply for this job, I can't remember that far back. I have to ask the book- keeper when I started this position and at the same time ask for that raise but before I do, I better drum up some business. A lot of my pooch friends know I am writ- ing for the Post-Gazette but what about their human companions, their friends? Hey guys! I need a little help here! Do you want to men- tion that the Post-Gazette comes out every week and you can subscribe for a year for $30.00. It would make a perfect gift for someone. Oh! Don't let me forget we also do printing like letter head- ing; business cards; Wedding invitations; and business envelopes also lunch and dinner menus for restau- rants. Maybe you know someone in business you could mention me (Freeway) and they can give me a call 617-227-8929. I'll be more than glad to help them with whatever they may need or they can talk to Lisa. She is always at the front desk (she is my bonding friend). I am not kidding here guys. I need to get a raise and in order to do that I need to get some business my way. So ALL you Pooch friends out there whisper in your master's ear and pass the word on the paper would make a wonder- ful gift for someone and they can read my column every other week. That should make them happy. That's all for now ... Life is Wonderful!
