Conversation with The Monkey

Who is five if you all remember.

"Ima, is Caesar a puppy?"
"No honey, he's all grown up."
Dramatic wail.
"Oh! then he is going to leave us soon!"
Ima, thinking she is thinking the dog is soon headed for doggies heaven. Which, owing to his age is probably not all that off the mark. But still...
"Why do you say that honey?"
"Because he is going to go find a wife and leave us!"
Mom manages not to laugh while assuring the child this is not a likely possiblity. It isn't so much that he is snipped; he isn't. That was part of the purchasing agreement. It is more like he is that dumb. Caesar doesn't even lift his leg to pee.

Smarts, this dog doesn't have. If a pretty Basset Hound lady came strolling around he probably just wouldn't know what to do.

At least he is cheerfully stupid.

Rachel Ann -

Our beagle, Bart, doesn't lift his leg either! LOL But it isn't because he's stupid. If you fix a male dog at an early age, they often never learn to pee that way. I had to laugh reading this, though!
