Talking about the service dog,

tongue rollover at Hopeful Parents today.

I won’t lie, I’m hoping everyone over there at HP will get a service dog for their child(ren). I’ve been sending Carrie e-mail pics of dogs for close to a year now, trying to convince her to get over her dislike of dogs, and aquire one for her son Rojo. I’m manipulative that way. I’m learning to accept this about myself. Heck, if I had my way, I’d ask all of you to send Carrie pictures of cute dogs:

Yes indeedy. Self-acceptance is the key. After all, no one is perfect.

P.S. Can you roll your tongue like Jingle? Some people can’t. It’s genetic. I myself have been blessed with tongue rolling ability. It’s one of my gifts.

    I posted a response over at Hopeful Parents to your post and would love to have a bit of a dialogue on this particular company — whether or not they might work with us in southern California.

    Hi Elizabeth,

    There was a family from California in our class. You would have to travel to Ohio for the ten day training, but yes, they would work with you.

    Good thing you’re not mean enough to send the photos of cute dogs to Rojo!

    If you succeed in convincing Carrie to get a dog, I’ll fly to your house and give you a prize in person. I will!

    My girls and I can all roll our tongues. Poor Bubba cannot. Sad, genetically deficient Bubba. Do you think we should get him a dog, too? 😉

  7. Yep. I’m one of the tongue-rollers.

    I will HAPPILY spam Carrie – but shouldn’t we see how Jingle and Ms. Riley do first? I mean the soft fuzzy muzzle is practically enough of a reason…but that may be you talkin – not Carrie 🙂

  9. Wanda says:

    I can. Love that little pink tongue.

  10. Amanda says:

    Tongue rollers of the world unite – me too!

    Cute dog pictures…hmmmm but which cute dog picture? We have so many!!

    how about I bring Daisy over to Carrie’s for a playdate with Rojo? What ya say Carrie? C’mon. It’ll make you feel good. All the cool kids are doing it.

  12. fullsoul says:

    Showing up with an actual dog is sooo much better than an e-mail picture! I love it Holly.

    Now. Will Carrie?
