The Great useless Dog talePosted Friday, February 6, 2009, at 10:44 AM
The Brave One
He is a rescued dog. I call him The Big Dummy sometimes, because he can be air headed.
We rescued him one very cold February, around 5-7 years ago. He was skinny, covered in blue paint and would flinch every time you moved your hand.
We put an advertisement in the paper for his owner in case he was lost, and nobody claimed him. So we had the dog my son was praying for. I was wanting a Doberman, we got a husky-spitz mix. No telling what God will do. After a vets visit, neutering and rounds of vaccinations he was deemed healthy.
He has been a good dog, he loves to ride in the truck and gets along with the cats splendidly.
He knows who is boss. He loves my husband to pieces.
One day I was fixing to take the trash out, and the rubber band I had around the can popped off.
I could barely see where it went in the dining room, as I went to pick it up, I noticed the dog was looking at me funny. I thought I was because the rubber band popped and he did not like the noise but I soon found out, that the rubber band moved.
I jumped around 5 foot off the ground and the dog slunk in the corner. It was a snake! One of the mighty hunters (cats) had brought it in to show me and got bored and left it.
The dog of course took the blame and looked guilty. I turned to the worthless mutt and asked why he did not protect me?? He just looked ashamed, so I caught the garden snake and put him outside, told the cats that I appreciate their mighty hunting abilities, just leave them outside and told the dog he was a waste of skin and I was going to make slippers out of him. (just kidding)
Oh well, nobody does guilty like a dog. Maybe next time he'll rise to the occasion and be that great protector. Right now he is just a truck loving dog.
