Some would think that Life's a bitch means that it is the pits. I am having a stare down with my favorite friend right now, Bailey, our yellow lab-it's 3 am and she follows me around whereever I go whenever I go. She's a bitch (a female dog). Why is that a bad connotation? She has an attitude! If she wants something she lets you know by whining, barking, looking at you with sad eyes, or pulling you along & stubbornly smelling things when you want to be on your way. She is 12 years old now and needs glucosamine pills to keep the puppy in her step, but the fact is she is getting old for a lab and the years are slowing in her ability to get around, but give her a ball and she chases it, clap you hands and talk to her in a happy tone, and you can trick her into anything. Every day is "the happiest day of my life" for her. She has a bitchin' attitude and I am taking notes from her. Life's a bitch-it's just how you interpret it.
