Secondhand. All else is speculation.

Agreed. I'm partial to used, but secondhand works, too.

I guess used/second-hand/recycled does not have the hysterical connotations implying you have a feral dog that street dog suggests.

I guess once again, we are encountering a language barrier with Paul. I'm beginning to wonder what language he speaks. He claims it's engineering, but I thought engineering was to be concise so everyone would understand what you were talking about. Not.. you alone.

What i saw of Muttley was not a raging out of control mal-adjusted feral dog.
then again, how Tuck could be interpreted as a food grabbing/snapping dog is beyond me.
A dog that picks up any food you ask him to, carries it across a room and and relinquishes it in your hand (steak/cheese/biscuits/hot dogs-whatever) is not the kind of dog that takes off hands and fingers if offered treats. He generally holds them in his teeth to keep them from getting slobbery, until he's sure you mean for him to eat it.
He's either greatly confused Tuck with Yorik as the grabby dog (which is easy to do, they were dressed exactly alike) or his sensational imagination is spilling overboard.

Of course not! You don't get any medals for having used dogs.

He also claims to be a technical writer. I can't imagine how that is possible.

I am not surprised. I have suspected from the outset that Paul was making *** up for dramatic effect.

It surprised me the first time he criticized you for Tuck's supposed treat snapping. I assumed, at the time, that Tuck was just taking the treat quickly, because that might be normal for some working conditions. I didn't think for a minute, though, that you'd allow Tuck to actually snap a treat out of someone's hand. When Paul continued to harp on it, I chalked it up to his mental illness. At this point, I wouldn't worry about anyone taking the treat snapping story seriously. I think we all know that Paul is a liar and a *** stirrer.

Or he's just poking you with a pointy stick.

Yorik does VERY much treat snap. I never met Yorik before this trip, and I barely came back with fingers. I was very much surprised. Both of us kept switching dogs. each dog going willingly to each of us. Yorik was always on leash or tab though, and Tuck never wore a collar through the entire performance.
Since both dogs look the same to the average person, I can give him credit for perhaps mixing them up. But to say they BOTH treat snapped instead of admitting perhaps he made a mistake of which dog was whom is a whole lot insulting.
the owner won't do anything about it himself. He just laughs and tells people that his dog is just really friendly and trying to give them kisses.

I'd be mortified if Harriet did that! She does occasionally lose her brane, and boing up in the air, but she rarely makes contact. And, when it happens, I put the smack down on her, um, exuberance.
I'm ready to kick him upside the head. Unfortunately, I don't think that will do any good.

Oh for crying out loud! I'd be tempted to kick him somewhere else. Ahem.
While we're on the subject - I am pretty convinced that Keeshonden make the cutest most adorable puppies EVAH! (Sorry, Matt!)

Brindie the bouncing Boxer (is there any other kind?) has given people bloody nose, black eye and split lips, and knocked down kids and made them cry.

We have a little problem with Beanie the muzzle-licker. When she meets people, we tell them (before thy bend down to her level) to keep their mouths closed is she's near because she'll give French kisses or try and stick her tongue up a nose.
Tiny little 3-yr-old Alexandra sealed her lips in a smile. Her father did not. Alexandra thought it was funny... and Beans got another correction. (But I love kissing!!)

Of course not! You don't get any medals for having used dogs.

Oh whatever! *I* am getting a medal (or maybe it's sainthood) for taking in my feral street dog and turning him into a reasonably well behaved dog. After all, Khan's bigger and fluffier than Muttley, is most definitely scarier looking (part Wolf, yaknow), was found with a pack of dogs including his female GSD "***", and had documented behavioral problems from being abused (there are NO other reasonable explanations for his people issues. None.).
Or he's just poking you with a pointy stick.

That'd be my guess.

Oh my.. You should be an engineer technical writer! I think youve got the vocabulary!

Well i guess even you who haven't met tuck don't believe he's a drooling arm removing savage beast.
I'll take my pointy stick and move on. I'm getting a DVD of the tricky dog performance, and if I can figure out how to edit sections of it out, I'll post on the internet the retrieving hot dog trick. or any other tricks that you really wanted to see.
