The last time we went on vacation, my family rented a house on the beach. It was really great. The weather was nice all of the time, I got to play in the water and I ran on the sand with everyone. My problem is this: I’m a Yorkshire Terrier with not much muscle definition. There were bulldogs running around flaunting their physiques for all of the bathing beauties to see. I know I shouldn’t be ashamed, but I did keep my tank top on the whole time. What should I do?

We all have things about ourselves that we want to change but don’t sell yourself short and don’t assume that all girls want a hound who looks like the Hulk. I, myself, prefer a more unassuming figure. Besides, a good personality and sense of humor is very important. I once went on a blind date with a muscle-bound Pit-bull who couldn’t have been more boring. (Thank goodness I had pre-arranged an “escape” call to my cell phone with my owner, Wendy.) Remember, muscles don’t make the dog. Be yourself and have fun!
