Gotta agree with you on this one pastor! Pushing Poochie to plant a polite and palatable polished placker across the lips is a bit much even for this dog lover. I once heard it said, “a dogs mouth is cleaner than humans.” I guess I have seen some humans where this may be true, but who wants to taste what and where a dog licks? No thanks!
I bet you are the only child that cheered when Ol' Yeller got shot, or should I say what he had coming to him? You are not a cat person are you!?
I am not an only child and actually grew up with a dog for a pet...so I know of what I speak. I do think cats are considerably smarter than dogs, and unquestionably cleaner, however, I currently have a similar sentiment towards keeping one in my suburban home. It was cool when Ol'Yeller got the smack put on him...
My dog would get the Ole Yeller treatment if she licked me or my family in this manner. However, I am a little concerned about Pastor T's wellbeing. Let me explain: He has an outward expression of open hostility and animosity towards our four legged, furry friends (in this case Man's Best Friend). In some instances I am sure the ACLU and PETA could have him brought up on canine defamation and discrimination charges or just plain hate speech aimed at poor innocent doggies. Although, not a liscensed, clinical psychologist, I am an avid fan of Dr. Phil and Oprah, so am thus qualified to say that I believe Pastor T is/has been in a bitter struggle with his 'inner child' over not having a dog. He could be going through a post tramatic stress disorder of some type, naturally aimed at dogs (as evidenced by hi anti-dog and quite frankly emotionally upsetting comment about Ole Yeller). It's sad but I think the only cure for Pastor T's phobia of dogs is therapy and a brand new black lab puppy.
KH may be on to something....When I was 13 I was a paper boy (see prior post on jobs I've had). I delivered over 100 papers to an apartment complex across the street from my house. I was collecting money one night, when I was attacked by a 120 lb German shepherd. As soon as the door opened, the owner failed to restrain his dog, it lunged out and clamped on my knee. It broke skin and bruised my muscles and bone! He wouldn't let go. I was punching him on the head as the owner tried to pull him off me. No such luck. That beast didn't let go for almost 30 seconds. I wasn't hurt very badly, however, the genius owner had no vet papers on him! He insisted the dog had all the necessary shots, however, there was no way to know for sure. Long story short- my dad had to take me to the emergency room where I had to get a series of shots "just in case". So, do I have issues with dogs? You better believe it! Maybe KH is right! It staggers me that people in apartments and 1/5 acre lot homes in the suburbs keep such wild beasts. Unbelievable! I warn any prankster- if you give me a dog...it be "taken care of" (in the vain of the Godfather-"oh Pauly...we won't see Pauly no more..)
The truth finally comes out. You have deep seated anger issues that need to be dealt with concerning our canine friends. Maybe you need therapy or better yet some paharmaceutical therapy to help you deal with your past life issues. I would imagine these people have such big dogs as a deterent to crime.
Thanks to Hoppa's keen sense of discernment, I think the truth is out! It's a spirit of rejection that our dear pastor is just now dealing with. Maybe we can offer some wise counsel and a little exorcism during the men's retreat this weekend?
No pharmacological help needed here...just my .223 and a hollow tipped bullet...I'll even give the mongrel a running start.
