ProVitamins?


Yesterday I got to spend a lot of time on the porch. My A said I needed some “alone time”. For some reason I seem to end up needing “Alone time” when my A and R have people over for dinner. I have yet to figure out why it happens or how my A knows when I need it. I will be sitting next to the table with my head under the arm of the guest who is eating. You know making sure they are enjoying the meal and the next thing I know my A is telling me I need to go have some alone time.

I don’t get it but there is not arguing with my A. Once he gets an idea in his head you have to placate him and go with it. He still has this silly idea that I am going to play fetch with him. Sorry but that is not going to happen.

So today during my alone time I was thinking about shampoo. No I am not crazy there was a bottle of shampoo in the recycling bin, apparently Dog “Alone time” should be spent next to the recycling. It is plastic this week. I used to think I was supposed to take out the recycling but lately my A has been keeping the door to outside shut so I can’t do that.

Anyway I was reading the shampoo bottle and noticed that my shampoo has ProVitamins. I use the lavender Johnson’s baby shampoo. “No more tears and tangle free” When you have as much hair as I do you want a good shampoo the will remove tangles. You also want to be very careful about using a shampoo that does not irritate you eyes. My A and I really do not see eye to eye on the best way for me to take a bath.

My A seems to think I should quietly sit in the tub while he washes my hair. I personally think I should be more involved in the process you know spin around, try to eat the soap, splash bark at the bubbles etc. When take a bath I usually try to make sure he gets washed as well. I don’t want my A to smell that would be a poor reflection upon me.

Anyway back to the shampoo. Did you know shampoo has ProVitamins. What the heck are ProVitamins. How do you love you amateur status as a vitamin? Have they accepted endorsements? I know B-12 has done a pretty good job marketing itself but I really don’t get it. How did these vitamins become ProVitamins?

Since I get paid from some of my posts am I a ProDog? You know the silly posts in pink about Goth dating or how I am going to put diamond plate cabinets in my kitchen, I get paid for those. Think about it I am a dog do I really care what the kitchen looks like? Umm no not really I only check to make sure my treat jar is full and see if there is food in my dish. Outside of that as long as the floor is cool in the summer and warm in the winter I would probably be just as happy living in a barn. So in some ways I guess I have sold out so does that make me a Pro?

I am not sure I want to be a pro. That would sort of end my Olympic dreams. {Now in the starting house for team USA Stephen the dog. It has been years since the US has been a factor in bobsledding but since Stephen the Dog has come on the scene there has been a major resurgence in the sport. It would not be much of a stretch to say that Stephen the Dog is the savior of US Bob sledding}

I am going to have to write the Olympic Committee and ask then about my status.

Stephen,

"A pro-vitamin is a vitamin precursor that the body converts to its active form through normal metabolic processes. Carotene, for example, is a provitamin of vitamin A."

The question you should really ask is if the bottle says lather, rinse, repeat, just how many times do you repeat?
