So Far...

The best thing about owning a dog is the following incident, just fifteen minutes old.

Pigpen's walk was early today since I'd gotten tired of sitting inside watching him plunder the guest bed with Plainview-style fury. So when we reached the school that marks our halfway point, the middkids were outside during a class change. On the sidewalk in front of us was...um... I'm not sure what's the A-OK term for this...um...Discovery Channel subject. Are they called dwarves? Fun-sized? Seacrests? Anyway, there was a child in front of us who would have fit comfortably inside a snow globe and--even better--he seemed to be the school bully, slinging insults and bouncing rocks off the other kids' backpacks. I was momentarily impressed by li'l Arnold Drummond's reign of terror when his Bape-rocking classmate shouted "Yo! Tell your dog to bite his forehead."

Aaaand scene.

Riddle me this fellow new dog owner -

How can can something so cute and lovable possibly have the worst gas on planet? Like the baby eating chili in Mr. Mom bad?

you should have told that kid that pigpen has already done enough biting as of late. unless he (sir pigpen) has a few more teeth to lose.

TSW: I've wondered the same thing. Pigpen could liquify metal.

Anon: WANT!

Kayleigh: I think maybe I secretly wanted to see the newspaper headline "Puppy Bites Midget".

...And yet, if you sic your dog on the rock-throwing bully, all of a sudden, you're the bad guy.

Go figure.

Oh, dude, when I read the punch-lizzle, I choked on my own saliva. So go ahead and check "to asphyxiate someone with something from inside their own body" off of your list. Is it...it's on your list too, right?
