"New" Credit Card Fees:
To nobody's surprise, credit cards are still imposing fees on their customers.
It wasn't necessarily supposed to be quite this bad, however. The Credit CARD Act, which goes into effect on August 22, is aimed at making credit cards more transparent, fair and a little less fee-heavy.
But while some fees are going to be outlawed, many credit cards are just inventing new ones (or turning to some tried and true oldies) to replace them.

Claudia called to ask me to groom "Pepper", her daughter's Long Coat Chihuahua. Pepper is staying with them for a while. So Misty and I went down there in the Puddle Jumper, and picked up Jay and Pepper. Misty, Maddie the Yorkie, and Pepper played a bit on their fenced porch.
15 year old Misty is feeling very good since she no longer has the bad teeth and infection in her mouth and sinuses. So she plays and prances, and walks with her head held high now. She seems to remember where steps are, and can even jump in and out of the car. But I am always there to guide her.
Pepper had been done in a Lion Cut before, and had a big ruff around his neck, like this:
It is a 'pretend' lion, a guard dog cut to look like a lion!! Oohh! Scary!!
Prime, foster cat, has got over attacking dogs. She just stays up high, and watches them being groomed. Misty sleeps in the grooming room near her, Paco walks in there sometimes, to steal any food that Misty has left. Then different dogs are here to be groomed, she gave up, or got over it.
A lot of Pomeranians are cut in a Lion Cut, but I can't see the sense in getting a long haired dog, and then cutting it's hair off. Get a short haired dog, if that's what you want!
Pepper jumps on Jay's bed, when Jay is sleeping at his mother's house, so he doesn't like the ruff. Jay said it got dirt and food caught in it, and begged me to cut it all off.
Well, it was not my call, so I compromised, and cut the ruff a lot shorter. I sent these pictures to Pepper's Mom, and she liked them, so I am glad.
So this is Pepper, after his haircut today:
