My Dog Alice

   This is the story of Alice. She was given to us by my mother in-laws boyfriend in 2009. We had just gave away our little rat terrier and Chihuahua mix because the little ankle biter had snipped at my new-born son too many times. I didn't want another dog so naturally I was against having another dog; not to mention a rottweiler. The media leads you to believe that these dogs are dangerous, and I believed them.

  Some how this little puppy stole my heart, and despite the fact that the dog was suppose to be for my kids, she pretty much became my dog. I fed and watered her, took her outside, bathed her, and would play with here as much as I could. Yep my dog.

  Alice and my kids were so close in age she pretty much was like one of my children. So one could understand just how close her and our family had become over the years. I was still the one that gave this dog most of the attention it got. Again, my dog.

  Two days ago she got sick. We just thought it was like every other time she gets sick. She would puke a little on the floor, I would clean it up, and that would pretty much be the end of it. Well, this time was not like that.
This time her stomach had twisted upside down, I didn't know this could even happen, and she was bloating and going into shock. By the time we were able to get her to a vet that day there was nothing we could do. Friday March ninth my dog passed away. My wife and I were there at the end comforting her and loving her, but it still doesn't make it any easier.

  I had never witnessed death like this before. I have never watched someone or somethings last breath. And yes I bawled like a little baby. She was my friend, my family, my kid, my dog, and there was nothing dangerous about her. Its not the breed that you should be afraid of, its the idiots who treat their dogs like crap to make them mean.


Comfort Click Review

  So I got a Comfort Click Belt for Christmas from Santa. I have also seen these at Dollar General for $20. Well I got one. The big guy in the red suit thought I needed a new belt, which I desperately did, so he got me one and put it in my stocking. I expected coal but oh well. When I got the chance I opened the pack to realize that I had to trim the belt to my size. No biggy. So I followed the directions and got the belt all complete and ready to use. So I put it on and pulled it tight. It made that zip tie sound I was expecting it to make but when I let go, it loosened back up. The buckle had too much room where the zip tie feature did its magic. So when I let go the belt would lift off of the lock and slide right past. Santa just got me a $20 piece of junk in my eyes. But don't fret. I found a way to make it work. You know how in high school when you have a class ring that don't fit you simply wrap yarn around the back side of it? Ya, that's what I had to do to my belt. It works great now. 
  I email the Comfort Click customer service using an email address I found on their website. This is my email:

  Dear Customer Service,

    In the spirit of helping you to improve your product I would like to complain about my Comfort Click belt I       acquired.
    I received it as a gift from Santa, cause he shops at Dollar General like every other person. When I opened my   gift on Christmas day, read the instructions, and put it together imagine my surprise that this $20 belt, I have   never paid that much for a belt before, didn't work the way the box advertised. Down on the bottom there is a   orange circle with a shield that has a lock in the middle. Underneath that it says "Secure - will not loosen or   stretch." When I put it on it did loosen. There was way too much room where the Zip-tie like feature was so the   belt would push up ever so slightly to just slip right past. The most expensive belt I have ever got just became a   false advertisement. 
    You know how when you have a ring that is too big you wrap some yarn around the underside and then it fits   perfect? Well that is what I had to do to get your belt to work for me. I had to alter your product, that was   suppose   to already work, to make it actually work. So... ya... that is my experience with your product. Over all   good belt... after I fixed it. Maybe you could look into improving this problem in the future. 

  I did not receive a response. But hey, I got my belt to work and I didn't even pay for it. It's all good, right?

Comment your opinion or experiences with this belt.
