Dear Freddie Fans,
Peggy & Judy (who I shall refer to as P&J to minimize typing paw pressure) just started a series called Well Done Women. I have no problem recognizing women . . . but it is a bit sexist of them to exclude males, of which I am one. This post hopefully will remedy P&J’s over-sight, not to mention their reputation.
What’s a “Doggone Well Done Dog”?
- She or HE has weathered years of human’s life experience.
- She or HE has navigated changes – whether by choice, chance or necessity – and continues to adapt to human idiosyncrasy.
- She or HE contributes to the world by caring for humans, both female and male.
- She or HE is curious and open to having new tasting experiences.
My first DOGGONE WELL DONE DOG is Freddie Parker Westerfield
After spending decades (in dog-years) as a psychotherapist in private practice, Freddie has not rested in retirement. He is a Certified Human Trainer, Editor-in-Cainine for Freddie’s KNEWSletter, intrepid roving reporter and columnist for MAXyourMIND & CURIOUStotheMAX.
Here is one of Freddie’s intrepid reporter posts which reflects his unflagging attempts to help humans. To read it in its entirety click on the title:
I’m a sit expert and here to teach you how to stop sitting like a nut (literally and probably figuratively) . . . a cashew nut, and sit like me.
My human authority is Naomi Khan who knows what she’s talking about cuz she’s a spine surgeon. She told me that most humans tend to round out their backs when they sit. When your spine is in an improper position you’ll tend to have more back problems. Listen to me!
Sitting like a cashew nut can damage the disks in your spine that act like little shock absorbers. This can cause the disks to degenerate, or for one side to bulge. It can push against nerves, causing pain, or even rupture. Ouch!
You can protect your disks by straightening the cashew.
Jean Sherer (another of my authorities) says your culture focuses on trying to stick out your chest (which might make you think you’re important) but doesn’t help your back. Stop sticking your chest out and change the position of your pelvis, or butt.
“Sit up straight,” doesn’t mean to stick your chest out. Instead, stick your “tail” out, like me.

DOGGONE WELL DONE, FREDDIE, DOGGONE WELL DONE
P.S. I found an equal-opportunity, non-discriminating blogger, Jessica SORTING LIFE’S ISSUES WITH JESS.
She is hosting Dogs of Blogs, of which I am one.
