The following is quoted from "Dear Abby".


In response to the letter from the couple who had been happily married for nine years and are childless by choice:

I have no grandchildren. Why? Becasue my children prefer to raise dogs. Well, of course that's their business --- but I let them know in no uncertain terms that their choice made me a grandbitch.

Abby, their shocked reaction was absolutely priceless!

No, no grandchildren so far, but I have lots of granddogs and I love them dearly.


DEAR SEATTLE: Thanks. Your letter was a pip. (Make that a "pup" if you wish."
