    “I’m calling from Italy. Guido and I got married this morning.”
    “But what about Giacomo?”
    “He’s your dog now, Pops>”

    @STEVERO: Yes, that’s what I fear.

    Stevero and all commentators thus far:
    I think this is called Parent Abuse!

    “Goodbye”? Geez. Gretchen is rather horrifically an insensitive clod. So, she makes her father sleep in the garage with a frenetic dog, then decides to leave in the middle of the night, and nonchalantly calls up her father on the phone at 3am to say “adios”? Damn.
    The one very bright spot today, however, is the slogan Slim used!!!! Has that been one that has been used with the garage before, or is it a new invention today? I really enjoyed that!

    It’s like the ol’ carpenter’s rule; “measure twice, cut once.”

    The guy I set Gretchen up with would have worked out much better.

    Good, Gretchen. Go grow up some place else. Slim, you have yourself a loving dog. Just get him to obedience classes.

    The 3 AM call must indicate that Gretchen is back in Europe. Probably with Guido.
    Remember Guido? No, I don’t, either.
    And the point of this last Moon Maid’s length of a story arc was just to dump a dog on Slim!

    Gretchen was just freeloading along with Guido. Good riddance to both.

    Nearly all dogs are naturally obedience. It is their owners that need leadership classes.

    As someone who has been attacked by more dogs than I care to shake a stick at, I have no idea where someone would get the notion that dogs are naturally obedient.
    Almost forgot.
    Time to do my daily dog doo pick up from my lawn before the HOA comes by.
    Not having a dog is no excuse, the HOA tells me. Fines are hefty, too.
    Night worker, day sleeper, dogs barking all day long because their owners are at work.
    I have often mused that, in a perfect world, dogs would not be allowed unless houses were at least one mile apart…
    Someone here called me “pathetic” when I complained about dogs licking me in the face – especially after I watched where that dog had licked itself before jumping in my lap! That’s supposed to be the most pleasant part of dog ownership?
    In the Bible, dogs were vermin. How they came to be “man’s best friend” is beyond me.
    Okay, so I know that dogs can be trained to do specific tasks. At work, we use them for bomb sniffing.
    Of course, considering what most dog-loving neighbors think of me, maybe I need to bring one of those bomb sniffers home with me!
    Just keep it out of my face! Please!
    Where was I? Oh, yes.
    In a perfect world, PEOPLE would be our best friends, not dogs! Pause for thought: What are we doing wrong?
