Like a Felled Log



Patrick dropped by today with "Trawler" the cute Golden Lab puppy that he has now. This dog gives new meaning to the words: Let sleeping dogs Lie...because he is the most ADD dog I've ever seen, EVER! He is practically a spaz he is so hyper and all over the place! I've never seen a golden lab be so hyper! Aren't they the ones that make mellow seeing-eye dogs?

All I know is, after 20 minutes in my apartment there wasn't a single item left in any of my trash cans, all paper things had been shredded, the cat food bowl had been emptied of it's contents (and eaten) and I'd had to remove my shoes and slippers from the floor or they would have been mangled into rawhide pulp within moments.

Finally he dropped like he'd been shot with a tranquilizer dart (I swear I didn't do it!) and Patrick and I had a few moments of peace in which to hold a conversation. Anyone who wants a puppy for a companion is just NUTS in my book, or else delusional. Pat's last dog was full-grown from the pound and so mannerly! This little guy is in dire need of training and taming, and I don't think he will get it from the indulgent and in-denial Patrick.

Honestly, I don't think I'll be inviting the puppy back anytime soon! But he is cute, isn't he?

(No full-frontal photos of this dog exist. He won't stand still long enough.)

Hi Karla

It's great to see you when you can make it. I hope you're not feeling too horrible and that the Government quagmire is not too difficult to traverse!

I've had Labradors and like all pups, they're totally brainless until they're about two. Having said that, they are very intelligent dogs and easily trained, hence they do make very good guide dogs. But they are total garbage gutses and need lots of exercise or they get really fat.

Hope things aren't too bad for you at present.

Take care and cheers!

I've always been a cat person but many of my friends have had dogs. I just like the independence of cats. I have been around some very well-trained dogs but then there's alwyas one that isn't....and it drives me nuts!
