The Bravest Dog in the Room

The bravest dog in the room wants you to know that she knew that it was just a fly. But she would have you understand that it was a very LARGE fly. She would convey this information by jumping on your lap and STARING at you. When that didn't work, she would show you, via concerned pacing, that the fly was no mere housefly but a dangerous threat to your very well being. When that did not work (because you were simply too stupid to read THE SIGNS) she would hide in the closet. She tried her best with you. It's a dog eat dog world.

The bravest dog in the room would also have you understand that she is no fool. When sniffing around off leash (because she is just THAT amazing) she knows that one cannot be too careful. If a dog behind a gate barks at one, one better hightail it away from that gate. The bravest dog in the room knows that it is better to be a lover than a fighter. Give peace a chance. If, however, one is ON her leash and one walks by the same said dog behind the gate, one must SAVE FACE by crazy barking right back at said dog. One must show said dog, that even when one is on a leash, one can still be a tough bitch. That is not choosing fighting over loving. That is just called self respect.

I agree with you Scout. What do the people know about such things anyway!

Anne Louise Bannon said...

Yes, you have the bravest dog in the room. (tee-hee)

You go, Scout. Continue to protect the innocent.

Scout is so lucky to have such a good mouthpiece.

Scout is very brave. Boz would send his love but he's sleeping.

Clearly, Scout and Albert must never meet. It would be like a Gladiator re-enactment.

Respect, Scout. You go, girlfriend.

Olga said...

Scout is obviously both brave and wise.

Adele said...

Brave girl, and also an excellent communicator.

Scout is wise; she knows the ways of the world. And she knows she has the softest, fluffiest bed ever -- and that she deserves it.

Dog psychology's so funny. I'm always amused by the way they behave differently on and off leash, and how they enjoy teasing the dogs behind fences when they know said dog can never get out. My Abby's wicked that way.

When it comes to flies, Frieda the cat is the tough bitch in my house. She leaps up walls and knocks over lamps to get that damn fly.
