Glenn: are you seriously that hard up? I have 3 dogs plus own a dog walking service and I still find time to be with my own dogs. Where's your wife? Tell her to pitch in. Or if she is that worthless, dump her. Relationships are 50/50 especially if you are struggling. If you can't handle life, kids, dogs and a wife, get rid of your wife, dogs up for adoption and take care of your kids.

I'd offer to take your dogs for a walk here and there but am afraid I'd get in over my head. Man up and put your wife in her place. 50/50 relationship

Mary. I don't mind paying a service a fair fee. But, most of the services basicly charge and tell you what to do instead of doing it. The ones that will take your dog will charge liteerally THOUSANDS to do it. yea REALLY. You also are very wise Mary. I have been trying to motivate my wife a long time. She will pitch in some. But to be honest I get VERY little support here in this house. This is why I am the way I am. I would gladly discuss a business deal w/you. Let me know what You think you can do w/my dogs and what you feel is a fair fee. I will advise if I can do it. Problem lately?? When we sold our house we incurr severe capital gains tax. Uncle Sam will NOT let us deduct cost of condo. Problem??? Mom does not know we are broke....I already spend most of the money Atty should have w/h that like on a paycheck. Anyway, hope to hear from you email: bellpix@aol.com GLEN
