let me tell you how it will be

So we've had the dog for a month and the other day we get a notice from the government about the dog tax. Seems the dog owes 82 euros in dog tax for 2006. What I want to know where is the dog going to get this money. It is good to know, though, that my dog is going to receive some benefits from paying taxes, nicht wahr? I'm sure some of that money is going to go for her pension and old-age health care costs. I'm sure this isn't just some idea the innovative German government had to let them continue taxing everything in sight. Wait, to tax even the intangible. In fact the intangible more than the tangible. I'm sure that if there's a war, the German army is going to descend on Kurzroederstrasse to defend my good tax-paying dog. Because she's cute, and is all paid up for this year. So everything's good. No worries.

OMG. a dog tax?!!! and i thought that after living in italy i've heard all about taxes. i'm a tax-paying housewife for that matter... not really so much above the dog in the hierarchy.

i LOVE stella!! and sorry about the hand... she probably doesn't know her own strength yet ;)

i've raised five german shepherds and never got wounded. they did get my favorite sandals though. grrrrr.

nice to know you're a dog lover. my hand is pretty much better, and I didn't have to go to work...
