I just "read you" on the "In a Perfect World..." thread, and was so intrigued by your avatar in combo with your name and work wish that I looked you up here. I had to laugh at the anal gland thing... We have no dogs, but we do live with 6 totally spoiled felines. The oldest is now 19 years and 2 months - my furry baby (as opposed to my hairless human ones ).
Good luck with the Primal! I'll check back in a bit to see how life as a Grokette is treating you!
I have a mantra that I have spouted for years... "If I eat right, I feel right. If I feel right, I exercise right. If I exercise right, I think right. If I think right, I eat right..." Phil-SC
