-My trunk has been rebuilt many times over and I just canít get it to look good and function at the same time.

Lol I told them to stay away from the east side of the house, so they're piled up in the kitchen with my daughters head in a Mexican dog butt. We thought the dog was stupid for about 3 weeks after my daughter brought home this mutt. Then she started talking in Spanish, and the dog sits, lies down... Hence, Mexican dog. The other dogs is a legal alien, glowing eyes and all.
