Yeah..I guess that was a little vague. My buddy got married to a heavy spender a couple years after he took Jake. She goes thru his funds like Jake did his belts. Sorry - my attempt at levity fell short.

Tap-tap....is this thing on?

Re: Dang dogs.

You'll be here all week!!

Hey Brewer, wait until yours figures out that if you give food you dont like to the dog, it'll disappear!

Gabe likes sharing his food with Ted. The problem being sometimes he'll offer something up to ted, who at a minimum will lick it, then gabe will withdraw the offer and eat it himself. :P

We've also discovered that teds giant head will easily fit in the space under the high chairs tray and allow him to neatly remove any tidbits that gabe dropped into his lap.

To hell with saying 'car' or 'ride', all I have to do is jingle some keys while putting them in my pocket or put my shoes on to invoke a major eruption. Last week Ted got so excited when I put my keys in my pocket that he shot into the laundry room, did a 180 and hit the dryer with his ass, knocking it over about a foot.

And many a time I've left an unsuspecting food item within dog reach to go get a drink and have come back to find it missing or a dog staring at it with the ears up and forward, the internal struggle quiet evident "MMMM...wanna eat it / but i'll get in trouble / but it looks yummy / but i'll get yelled at".

Jazz does all the work, doing tricks and talking to us when we're eating. Ted just sits quietly nearby, knowing his big sister will get the goods eventually.

By the way, should your dogs eat anything undigestible, its a good idea to take them to a vet right away. Bowel obstructions usually dont end well.

Nothing like this one though:

OK, it's Friday...

Best one line reply: "Oh, Darling, he looks just like you."

On a vaguely related bit of humor, our dear friends' son was born breach, and the first things to say "hello, world" were his .. uh.. package. When we first heard that story, after a few of Milwaukee's finest brew, we got into a one-liner contest. The best one, as I recall (remember to visualize this kid coming out juevos et al first), was, "Bob - he's got your nose!"

Sorry. Been a long week .

Not too likely. Like most hounds, my beagles are walking trash cans. Since the pre-emptive trick-doer eats all manner of beyond foul things (his own poop, dead birds, half-gone frogs, grass, and other things you don't want to know about), broccoli and similar is usually wolfed down before he even really knows what it is.

A coworker said that his mother didn't realize what a slob her husband was until the dog died.

Re: Dang dogs.

Never try to pull socks or other items (ropes, electric cording, plastic bags!)from a dog's hind end. The item might be stuck and you could end up pulling on the dog's intestines. Obviously, this would not be a good thing for the dog. :P

My lab loves tennis balls. She rips off the green fuzz and spits it out. Over and over until the tennis ball is naked. Then she moves on to the next one.

Re: Dang dogs.

Speaking of walks, I walked my previous Golden Retriever every day of his life for 16 1/2 years, no matter what the weather or condition. That was his choice, not mine. The dog's paws would freeze in the Chicago winter slush and he would troop on happily.

One day he broke his rear leg chasing a rabbit. The neighbors thought I was one cruel SOB walking this old dog with a cast on his leg sort of like a peg-leg pirate. But hey, he absolutely insisted on it.

On balance, the old guy was pretty dumb. When they passed out brains he thought they said "trains" and never got in line. My current Golden, a little rescue female, is so smart it's frightening. She has got me walking her twice a day.
