Dog blogging

   My phone's touch screen thingy does not distinguish between my fingertips and dog body parts. Hershey accidentally dialed the USAFRCC ( Air Force Rescue Coordination Center) last year. I lose far too many games due to Angus' nose. So it was without any wonder that I logged in to find this post: Rgqver.cq r .  E .qv.vrfv eea rrvgeg m. V.v veg .$.$   .v.
