Meet Paloma


A white blur faster than a speeding bullet. Meet Paloma...the wonder dog.

There is not a safe dandelion outside when she is around. She eats them. And fuzz balls. She'll come running up with one sticking out of her nose.

Saturday night we got a an emergency medical call for a family member. It turned out OK but only after we got back at 2 a.m. Apparently the odd hours wore out the pets - Paloma fell asleep with her head on my chest when we got back in.

The air quality in Houston is so bad that I am concerned about her health --and that of all the kids growing up who spend time outside. We have a higher cancer rate in this area than the rest of the state. Houston's Mayor White has taken a much needed leadership role to clean up our air. That is vital to our future.

Next time: Meet the vacuum cleaner my wife calls: "R2D2." It's German made -- and so good it should be a candidate for President. Why? Because it's absolutely great at cleaning up messes. Isn't that what we need?
