We're In The Cat Days Of Summer

Here's something I don't get -

Why is it that Americans are known for loving dogs, and yet, every saying that contains dogs, has a negative connotation attached?

Examples -

Sick as a dog
She’s a real dog
Work him like a dog
Computer’s a dog
Doggin' it
Dog Days of Summer

I Swear, My Wife Isn't Beating Me!

I walk my pittie Kilo every night in Riverside Park. I'm a bit of a pushover during these walks as instead of leading him, I allow him to lead me, as I hope it'll make him do his business faster so we can get home faster.

The problem is, it's pretty dark. Two nights ago, I wasn't quite looking where he was leading me and I walked into a tree. I came home with my scalp bleeding.

As if that wasn't dumb enough, last night, it happened again! Only this time, I was crouching under a low branch. I didn't get down far enough and it scraped against my back, again, leaving me bloodied.

I had a physical today, and had to explain my marks to my doctor. I wonder if he believed me.

"So you're telling me you walked into trees two nights in a row?"

I Knew There Was Something About that Toto

Did you know that according to temperament testing, Pit Bulls (which I, and most, include American Pit Bull Terriers, American Staffordshire Terriers and Staffordshire Bull Terriers) score higher than most dogs, including Labs and collies.

So, if you're scared of Pit Bulls, you should be terrified of Lassie!

And if you knew how low Cairn Terriers scored, you'd watch The Wizard of Oz in a whole new light!
