That's How it Goes

Haven't had a chance to sit down and look at this blog thing for a while now. Last time I had a "day off " was New Year's, and not much more in the month before that...

Seriously considering that offer from the guys up in Nashville. It's the same position I have here in Bama, but in a different division. One that involves a lot less travel.

I really like Bama though, makes it a tough decision.


This one goes out special to Old NFO. Glad to see you finally got that home in the country. 
Enjoy your peaches...

I Love My Dog

Even though he's pretty fucked up.

You see, when he was growing up, the only friend he had to play with in the neighborhood was a six or seven year old pit bull bitch. Man, he loves that dog. She taught him everything he knows about being a dog.

That's the problem right there. She taught him how to be a pit bull bitch.

You see, Chocolate Labs are normally what's referred to as "companion dogs". Sure, they're built for retriever work and all that, but they're very people-oriented dogs. They like to spend all their time around their humans. They are very affectionate dogs.

Pappy does this thing we've come to call "mouth hugs".
If you pay attention to him and start giving him some affection, he clamps his mouth onto your forearm. He doesn't do it hard enough to break the skin. He still has the "gentle mouth" instinct of a Labrador, but it's been corrupted by the bite training he got from that pit bull bitch.
If you try to pull away, he'll clamp down harder, but if you just hold still, he'll sit there and gently hold your arm so you can't "get away".

So we've come up with a new command for him called "No Bitey!"
It works like a charm.
