I Love My Dog

A good buddy of mine has a crap load of oak firewood, already split, at his house that he said I should go get, seeing as how he is working out of state and wouldn't use it anyway. So, yesterday before the rain came, I went over and got this truckload. When I got home Lika was waiting there in the yard and watched me as I backed up to the bank, where I could unload the wood easily. We designed this parking spot in this cut to allow me to back my truck up, with the tailgate down, and easily load or unload clay or whatever. You just walk right into the bed of the truck. Anyway, I went a little too far and hit that rock you see sticking up there. (unfinished retaining wall) Well, after I hit the rock, Lika starts barking like crazy. I knew what I had done but I got out anyway, after pulling up just a little, to see. 'You damn dawg! (and I said it just like that too) you ain't worth a crap at flagging me! You're suppose to bark before I hit something. I know I've hit it by now.' He just sighed heavily and went to lay down.
Now, ya'll know I was just teasing him and so then he tries to work on my sympathies by being cute. Funny how a lot of males tend to use this technique. They just offer their underside up to you and think you'll just forget all about everything. What's bad, is it usually works on me.

Funny but my new dog, Flike, who is a boy, never offers his belly and fights like crazy when we try to roll him over. He just gives me his doleful eyes look, which I understand is part of the Border Collie hypnotism technique on sheep.

If I had only known that I just needed to offer up my belly to attract women, I wouldn't have had to practice pickup lines, table manners, stimulating conversation, etc. Now that I'm married, it's a bit late for this information!

Hey Pablo! well, Lika isn't wholly a boy anymore, if ya get my drift, so maybe that has something to do with it. :D

Hey Ed! nah, you got it backwards! it's used to garner sympathy after you've done something wrong, not to attract. So, see, now that you're married, it should be quite useful to you!

Looks like he is trying to stay on your good side, for sure!

I was going to say that I should copy him, but when I heard about his...condition, I decied to keep my distance!

Good deal on the firewood!

What a great dog! Yes, he was mildly annoyed that you bonked that rock... couldn't you see? He was sitting right there! My lab is just as lovable, but he would have run over to the rock and said, "Do it again!"

Hey Beau! yeah, I used to have a Lab like that; they are so funny!
