A Different View of Man's Best Friend

Not sure what brought this to mind, but it cracks me up, and I figured since you're all pretty twisted, you'd enjoy it, too.

Years ago, when I worked at the local community college, there was a blind student and her guide dog who HATED each other.

The girl was always yelling at the dog. Well, not really yelling, but hissing at it under her breath that it was stupid, and a screw-up.

The reason I knew their feelings were mutual was that whenever the dog would take her around a corner, he'd shave it so close that she'd slam into the wall. And when she was half-way through a door, he'd jog to the side, so that she would run into the doorframe.

So she'd hiss at the dog some more, and it would stand there and patiently take the abuse.

And then, the next time he got the chance, he'd walk her into something else.

Consider it a trade-off for Wednesday's post....

Me? Twisted? Me? Snort tea through my nose whilst reading this post? Who, me? Unable to type for fits of the giggles?
Thank you for that - I needed a laugh x

I wonder which came first?

Yelling a the dog or the dog's little paybacks?

In the mid 70's I played coffee houses with DAVE GORDON ( Chef E probably knows about him). He was blind since age 3. One day I asked him if he would like to touch me to see if his perception of ME matched the reality of my physique.

He slowly ran his fingers over my forehead, nose, then poked my chest, and said, " Ok I got it! He laughed and said, " I don't care about what you LOOK like!"

What's the word when you give human traits to animals? Anthropomorphism. Or something like that.

But either way, it's a funny story. And you tell it well.

"ONE of THE GUYS"

It sounds kind of like some marriages I know of.

Ha hahaha, my eldest dog and I hated each other for the first five or six years we knew each other. You really can never know which relationships in life are going to take the most work to make work until you're already committed to them.

That reminds me of a mean patient of ours. She didn't like her Leader Dog because it wasn't agressive enough. I don't think the dog liked her either. I think they took the dog away from her actually. I'm sure the dog would have liked to get even with her.

Awesome. For the dog ;-) No, seriously, maybe they deserved each other?

Slightly co-dependent, no?
