Spike The Wonder Dog
This is our dog Spike. He is such a handsome boy. We rescued him from a local animal shelter about 4 years ago. I love him so much, but he's about the hairiest damn dog ever. His mother was a German Shepherd and his dad was probably a Husky. Oh the hair! But he's worth it.
Recently, I made the mistake of trying to teach him to talk. When he first wakes up he howls when he stretches. It's like he's telling everyone "Good Morning!" I think it's cute, so I tried teaching him to talk with hot dogs and pretty much the last bite of whatever I'm eating.
Big mistake! Now whenever he wants something to eat, he barks...loudly! He's only doing what he was taught, so it's not his fault, but when you are getting a midnight snack, he will wake up the whole house! Oops, maybe I stumbled upon an unintended diet plan.
If dogs could talk, perhaps we would find it as hard to get along with them as we do with people. -Capek
