A little back ground about me.
( I love dogs ) And there ani't no better dog than a hound!!
Soooooo----
Had to pick my grandson up from school the other day.
While standing out front of the school with all the yuppie moms .
One mother had a Harrier on a leash.
For those that don't know, a Harrier is a over size fox hound.
Nice dog!
I'm standing next to her and bend down and pet her dog remarking "Now that's a dog"
Meaning that she has a nice dog
But she looks at me like I'm some kind of a nut and say's "Yes that's a dog" like I'm a retard !
So just so she understands that I've given her a compliment for her choice of dog, I then say "You can't beat a hound"
She responds with "No you don't want to hit him"
I just walked away and waited for my grandson to come out to his crazy grandpa

Apparently a sheep skin on the wall is no guarantee of high I.Q., Jeb?

I had taken a dog to the vet, truthfully it was kind of old and ugly. There was a older woman there that later I found out was a old movie actress whom I wont name. She said "that is a beautifull dog". I kind of joked that it was really kind of ugly. She put me down quick, said "There is no ugly dogs! Just ugly humans!" I let that go.

I keep telling the oldest son to take the dog with him, the pup can pick-up more women than him. Every time I take him with me and go into the store for something, I come back out and a group of girls and women are at the truck petting him, and he will have "HAM" wrote all over his face.

And did you add that you enjoyed her singing, as well as her acting Merril? Nudge, nudge, wink, wink...

For the past twenty years I've owned Whippets.

Most people either really 'like' or really 'dislike' the looks of these dogs... and they always elicit comments.

"Boy, I bet she can run fast!" or "That's dog's skinny!" or the obligatory "I know what that is. That's a ...."

The most common answer is "Greyhound"... only a few guess correctly.

I've even heard "Great Dane" (I guess they're thinking Greyhound starting with 'G'.) And most bazaar... "Pomeranian".

But the best was, "That's a Wimpette!"

And yes they can run fast... up to 42 MPH in a burst.

Bullseye, that is one cute dog there.

To address the original subject, I am almost always sticking my foot in my mouth when I try clever repartee like that.

See, I've done it again. It wasn't even clever repartee he was trying. He was just trying to have a casual conversation, not even being clever.

Sounds like a generation gap to me?

That's like the guy who stopped to admire my toddler in the shopping cart. "That's a fine-looking boy you have! My son looked just like that at that age and he grew up to be a great, big, BUSTER!" I said, "I hope not, because she's a girl."

But she did anyway - 5'10" at 23.

Actually I thought you were going to say Doris Day?
BTW, Tippi was always far more beautiful than her daughter (Melanie Griffith)

I have an elderly terrier mix named Monty who of course has figured out exactly how to work me. Like many terriers, he is a prisoner to his nose, and though he is estimated at about 11-14 years (I adopted him from a animal rescue league, and not a lot is known about his past), when the little ******* wants to get into something he should not, he finds reserves of strength that you would not ordinarily expect from such a senior citizen.

He recently had a bout of... gastric upset, to put it politely, caused by his decision to eat something off the ground (before I could catch him) that he should not have eaten. The other day, just after he had recovered from those troubles, he went huffing and puffing after some other dead, putrid thing, which I was just able to pull him away from.

I was in the middle of a headcold, had a job interview later that afternoon (I was laid off in February after working 23 years for a major bank), and I confess that the combination of those things prompted me to let loose a loud string of curses that I would not normally utter in public at that volume. Ten steps later, at the corner, was an elderly, well-dressed gentleman, waiting for a taxi, and looking at me with his lips pursed and a slight shake of the head.

And of course Monty was chuckling. I just know he was.

Yes, I felt like a complete nut-case.

Have to agree with Stonewall - had a black & tan coon-hound for over 10 years. Finest dog I ever had. Smart, learn anything fast, and could run all day. What a dog!! Hope to get another coon hound someday.

I hope you can stand one more dog 'urping' story. A friend of mine had a dog (half wolf, half black Lab) that he had brought home as a puppy from a hunting trip to Wyoming. This dog grew up to be big and beautiful but true to his heritage would eat just about anything. One time my friend had a new girlfriend over for a candlelight dinner, salad, steaks - everything - because he really wanted to impress her. He had seen his dog eating something outside on the lawn but couldn't tell what it was.. Dog was called inside, took up his post under the dining table and friend lit the candles. When they were just starting to eat the salad the dog went 'URRRPPP' so they both looked under the table and saw the dog puke out a live garter snake. Girl screamed at the top of her lungs, ran out to her car and that was the last he ever saw of her !!!
