Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old
Irish Wolfhound named Belker. The dog's owners, Ron, his wife, Lisa,
and their little boy, Shane, were all very attached to Belker, and
they were hoping for a miracle.
I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer. I told the
family we couldn't do anything for Belker, and offered to perform
the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home.
As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would
be good for six-year-old Shane to observe the procedure. They felt
as though Shane might learn something from the experience.
The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker's
family surrounded him. Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for
the last time, that I wondered if he understood what was going on.
Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away.
The little boy seemed to accept Belker's transition without any
difficulty or confusion. We sat together for a while after Belker's
death, wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal lives are
shorter than human lives. Shane, who had been listening quietly,
piped up, "I know why."
Startled, we all turned to him. What came out of his mouth next
stunned me I'd never heard a more comforting explanation.
He said, "People are born so that they can learn how to live a good
life -- like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right?"
The six-year-old continued, "Well, dogs already know how to do that, so
they don't have to stay as long."

Dilallo is a Burger Joint
November 6th, 2007 쨌 No Comments
Dilallo is a burger joint with a bit of controversy. You see, with multiple locations (and owners) there is inevitably a steady debate over which is the mightiest. A few years back there was an article run (in one of those distributions made from trees… News Papers I think they call them?) on the best burgers in Montreal. Naturally Dilallo was included, but only the Notre-Dame street location, a.k.a. Chez Meloche, none of the other 5 locations were reviewed. Hence the question is begged: which is truly the best Dilallo burger, or are they all equivalently scrumptious??
Dilallo has been around since 1929 and their burgers are home-made and fresh, they have Beef, Chicken, and an excellent Fish (recommended). This is one of the best burger meals for under 10$ in the city.
..........Check out the last line (for under $10 bucks) now that's a Yikes !! for a burger,...nowhere near the Do-Re-Mi
we paid in the old days ( I love being able to say that....but not happy about being old enough to say it.) hahahahha
Any good old Catholics ( like myself) Remember what type of meat ,the priests were allowed to eat on a Friday ...? .............. Yup that's right ,.Nun !!!
