i do as well. whenever people act like they want to know more about harriet, or about Boxers in general, i paint them a life-sized picture of what it's like to live with her.

One more than one occasion I've been out walking the dogs when somebody driving by stopped and offered me a husky. Only once has someone asked where they can get one.

One good thing about Madigan is that I have many horror stories to tell people who want a dog "just ... dog, and she's a lovely social butterfly, every time I bring her out somebody decides they want a border collie.

oh, there's no end of harriet horror stories, believe me! what i don't understand is why it doesn't make people stop and think. is it a visualization problem? are they having trouble picturing what, exactly, it could mean for them* if they have to deal with some of the same issues i've dealt with (and, knowing the people concerned, if they're lucky, those issues won't be *worse than the ones i've dealt with).
To give her credit, she's determined to take the dog to classes and work with him. But she is not happy about it.

how old is the pup? if she's truly unhappy with the situation, it's not fair to her or the dog to stick it out.

You can disguise her by gluing on lots and lots of hair - think of it as doggie extensions. Alas, I just gave away a big bag of undercoat to one of the techs at my vet's office (she uses it to keep deer out of her garden), or I could send you some.
Fortunately (hmm, that's not the right word) Emmett and Saber just started blowing coat, so there should be more available any time now.

i'll make a notation on my Umpteen Ways to Torture Harriet list. i bet it'd make a good compliment to picking the crusties off her flews.

it's kind of you to offer (no, really, i appreciate it), but elliott is churning out more than enough undercoat to disguise a whole plague of Boxers.

Hmm, lessee .. a pack of wolves, a covey of quail, an exultation of larks, a plague of Boxers.

Shelly, thanks for the 'linkage of web pages'. My favorite is 'an unkindness of ravens'.
What would you call a pack (scourge? baying?) of dogPeople?

i've always liked "a murder of crows," but i don't see it on that list. "kindle of cats" is another favorite.

dunno, but for the Kibologically minded among us, i believe the collective noun for those pointy orange things you see around construction projects is a cone-vergeance.

before walking them together.
Obeying doggy etiquette, Mac stood, staring ahead, while she sniffed him over. Then, she goosed him. Shock! Outrage!
