What Can Go Wrong

This morning, I drove down to Buda to meet a fellow TBer who had business there. We met at Cabela’s. I brought Hairy with me because I didn’t want to pen him up for two hours or more. Anyway, we chatted in the parking lot while I left Hairy in the car a few feet away. I then leashed him up and let him out. He ran up to the person (I’m leaving him nameless for his privacy unless he might choose to post on this thread) and begged for attention like he always does.

We both petted him while we talked of the current state of affairs in this country. After a bit, we headed into Cabela’s because he wanted to buy some ammo. I kept Hairy on a very short leash as we wandered the aisles. The selection of ammo was the absolute worst I’ve ever seen at a Cabela’s. A single 8’ shelf, when they used to have a 30’ long aisle dedicated to ammo.

We stood next to the ammo chatting some more, with Hairy standing next to me. An older clerk came toward us to ask if we needed anything. He put put the back of his hand toward Hairy as he approached, but was headed directly toward me and made eye contact with Hairy, who without warning jumped at the guy snarling and tried to bite him. I yanked him back. I don’t think he made contact, but he might have.

I apologized for his behavior and told him that Hairy was intensely protective of me. After I pulled him back and reprimanded him, he sat in front of me, once again perfectly happy and calm. A few moments later, he actually stood and went over to the clerk sniffing politely. In retrospect, he made two mistakes. First, he came directly toward me. Second, he made eye contact with him. Had he simply walked up and stood with us and ignored Hairy, all would have been well. Come to find out, the clerk was ex-law enforcement and said he had trained dogs. That last made me wonder why he approached the way he did. What did Cesar Milan always say: “No touch, no talk, no eye contact.”




Obama Sucks!

Pretty much everyone told Dennis he hasn't trained his dog (ie, that it was his fault). Yeah!

Recently, at night Hairy has taken to laying against the entire length of my back (big doggie.) His butt will be just behind my shoulder, and his nose against the back of my knee. His feet point away from me, so we’re kind of laying back-to-back. But he REALLY presses against the length of my body. He gets peeved when I need to turn over (lol).

I'm surprised Cabelas didn't kick him out.

And I will NOT tolerate a dog who behaves that way.

So when LardAss rolls over, he's 69ing his dog. At least the dog realizes it's wrong.

Untrained, uncontrolled, and an irresponsible owner. Playing devil's advocate, the clerk could have been testing the dog to make sure none of the customers got bit. I picture LardAss there in a trench coat, space helmet, and a large dog in tow. That's sure to raise an eyebrow and make people a bit uncomfortable.

Why is he so worried about leaving the dog at home? Aren't there 2 of them?

He left out the part about smearing peanut butter on his balls.

Apropos of nothing, here is my vicious beastie. She is an elder surrender, and very sweet . . . as puppers should be. Ima thinking there is some cattle dog in the woodpile there, but Daisy isn't saying.
