I found this on Kim Schafer-Jones blog spot 'Wyoming Prairie'
'Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past.. For this, I will give you a life span of twenty years.'
The dog said: 'That's a long time to be barking. How about only ten years and I'll give you back the other ten?' So God agreed.
On the second day, God created the monkey and said:
'Entertain people, do tricks, and make them laugh. For this, I'll give you a twenty-year life span.'
The monkey said: 'Monkey tricks for twenty years? That's a pretty long time to perform. How about I give you back ten like the Dog did?' And God agreed..
On the third day, God created the cow and said:
'You must go into the field with the farmer all day long and suffer under the sun, have calves and give milk to support the farmer's family. For this, I will give you a life span of sixty years.'
The cow said: 'That's kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years. How about twenty and I'll give back the other forty?' And God agreed again.
On the fourth day, God created man and said:
'Eat, sleep, play, marry and enjo y your life. For this, I'll give you twenty years.'
But man said: 'Only twenty years? Could you possibly give me my twenty, the forty the cow gave back, the ten the monkey gave back, and the ten the dog gave back; that makes eighty, okay?' 'Okay,' said God, 'You asked for it.'
So that is why for our first twenty years we eat, sleep, play and enjoy ourselves.
For the next forty years we slave in the sun to support our family.
For the next ten years we do monkey tricks to entertain the grandchildren.
And for the last ten years we sit on the front porch and bark at everyone.
Life has now been explained to you.
There is no need to thank me for this valuable information. I'm doing it as a public service

Any dog has a time in its life when it doesn’t smell as fresh and clean as if it was just washed in a fresh, spring-fed lake. This is where essential oils can come to the rescue. Not only do they mask unpleasant odors but they offer some aromatherapy to the dog and household. You can create a variety of different aromatic shampoos for your dog. All-natural aromatherapy grooming begins with the addition of essential oils to an all natural soap or shampoo base.
5 drops Cinnamon Leaf 6 drops of Atlas Cedarwood
5 drops Caraway 4 drops Rosemary
3 drops Black Pepper 2 drops Patchouli
3 drops Bay Lead 3 drops Vetiver
2. Refreshing Citrus Shampoo
3 drops Sweet Orange
3 drops Lemon and Lime
3 drops Grapefruit
3 drops Mandarin
3. Delicate Floral Shampoo
4 drops Lavendar
2 drops Ylang Ylang
4 drops Rose
6 drops Petitgrain
4. Woodsy Conditioning Shampoo
6 drops Atlas Cedarwood
4 drops Rosemary
2 drops Patchouli
3 drops Vetiver
Make sure to watch the dog carefully to see how they react to the scents. If they seem uncomfortable, change the blend, or lessen the amount of oils used.
