Quite The Wag
This guy called me, said he and his wife just got a puppy. I said, “Great. Now you'll know what to do first thing every morning for the next 15 years.” And he said, “Yeah. It's kind of like a kid.” But, no it ain't. Kids get smarter. A dog, he's 6 months old, that's all the smarter he's going to get. Take my dog: I've walked him twice every day for over 10 years. Yet he still doesn't make any connection between the sound of his name called sharply three or four times and that subsequent unpleasant strangling sensation.
