Shaggy-or-Not Dog Story

By Bob Dvorak

“Dammit, Rex, I heard you were harassing that little poodle down the street this afternoon! And she’s not the first one. The Harrisons complained to me last week that you’d been bothering their terrier.”

“Now Al,” said his wife. “Take it easy on him. He’s just a dog, doing what dogs do. And if the neighbors are dumb enough to put a female in heat out there, what do they expect?”

“I don’t know, but I don’t need a rash of lawsuits or angry neighbors. What bothers me is the dog thing — he’s totally indiscriminate and he goes off the end and causes all kinds of trouble.”

“Well, Al, I will admit that Rex has always been something of a loose canine.”
