Of course, children love dogs. So naturally I spent time trying to instill a fear of dogs into my kids when they were younger. I may have also written a poem about rabies and foaming at the mouth and those fourteen shots in the abdomen just to get my point across to their impressionable minds. Caesar Milan I ain't. I've never whispered to a dog in my life. What would I tell a dumb animal?
Well, here's another page out of One Strange World. If you have a dog, watch your back today. I hear dogs, even the best of them, can turn on you. And as Bob Barker used to ask at the end of every episode of The Price is Right: "Have you spayed or neutered your dog?"
Nice neutered doggie
Licking my hand,
Protecting me from harm . . .
Here's a small bone
For a doggie treat
And . . . oops . . . let go of my arm!
