Wanna Dog? 5

Free to a good home. Will deliver (Linda says she doesn’t care if we have to go to Colorado–Karen?).

The Gutter Guys were here today.

They installed nice, new gutters.

They also left the gate open.

Two of the three dogs escaped. The third one is too much of a diva to move fast enough to escape, though she seemed vaguely irritated that she was left alone.

A good Samaritan called from about a mile way. The sons of bitches (and they are sons of bitches, what with being dogs and all) were gallivanting down Governor Printz Boulevard (50 mph speed limit, 60 mph traffic).

Three heart attacks later, my girlfriend coralled them.

Tomorrow, I shall call up the Gutter Guys.

I think I shall suggest to them, that, in penance, they should TAKE THE DAMNED DOGS.

    Ask Chris about the time he was doing plumbing work in a pet store a few years back and commented to a co-worker, “now that’s a good bitch,” looking at a dog on display, but with a female employee within earshot…

    Opie, you’re confused. He was in line to pay for dog food once, I was standing at the door, with Lady, a beautiful Doberman Pincher, & a strange man told him that was a beautiful bitch. Chris said “Thank you. Which one?”

    What kind of dog, Frank? Male, you say?

    Tucker’s a Torkshire Terrier (we think he has some Springer in him though) who’s about 15 lbs.

    Sparky? Well, hell, I don’t know what he is. I don’t really care, either.

    15 pounds? That’s it? Hmmm, Loki is 75 pounds of domineering witch. Katie puts up with her to an extent, then puts a stop to her, physically. The last time they fought, Loki was the one bleeding, as usual. (Katie’s the smart one, knows how to fight, & where to aim for. Generally the ears, or the face.) I think the little one would be beat up on.

    That 15 pounds of Torkie has won every fight with 25 pounds of Sparky. (Sparky is an it.)
