Three is ALWAYS a Crowd!

As I've always said, one is perfect...three is a crowd. Which is why I was disappointed this morning...

You see, whenever the Spokeswoman walks down to the creek, she always takes all three dogs...which is fine, that's the routine. BUT, when every few days when she wants to go down to the town square and make a wide loop through town (the really, really long walk), she just takes one else...well, sometimes the Littlest Ninja comes with her, especially if she has a piano lesson to go to, but none of the other dogs come along...just the Spokeswoman and I or the Spokeswoman, Littlest Ninja, and I...the way it SHOULD be. This morning, though, things got totally fouled up. The Spokeswoman must have gotten mixed up because she took the Goofy Newfie and the Half-Crazed Border Collie with us when we were going on the LONG walk...the four mile loop through town. Of course the Goofy Newfie was DRAGGING her paws pitifully half-way through the walk...lagging every time we needed to race across a busy intersection...totally aggravating! Meanwhile the Psycho Border Collie kept lurching ahead, trying to get in front of all of us. I, alone, did not deal the Spokeswoman any grief. Even though she had HUMILIATED me by putting the heinous PINCHER collar on me before we ever left the house. When it is just she and I going, I just wear a regular choker collar and, most of the time, no leash at all. I have become quite reliable at heeling off lead. So, it was bad enough to have a leash put on me, like I was some unmannered mutt...but, then to put the PINCHER collar on me...that was just totally unfair and uncalled for! As though I might get unruly with those other two renegades along! If you ask me, it is that sneaky, psychotic border collie that needs a pincher! I think I might get her one for Christmas!

That is really awful, Ransom. I walk like a maniac sometimes but even then I wouldn't get a pincher collar put on.

Why don't you just decline the next invitation for a long walk with the two wackos . Thats what I would do. "Thanks but no thanks"

Don't listen to the one above, she just wants you to hide your beautiful face.

Poor Ransom. That's just not fair!

Poor Ransom, the only tome Mom makes me wear one is if I am "acting up" in dog school. I try not too but sometimes, it is too hard to focus on all of that hard stuff when I would rather be stealing cheese from some nearby border collie, he, he, he...

Those collars are not as harmless as most people think they are. Many dogs have been hurt, deeply hurt by their use.

Ransom it's time to come out of hiding. We know you're busy, but we miss you. I'm trying to get back into blogging too.

Also, I tagged you for a fun game. Check out my blog for the details.

Awe Ransom, I sympathize with your crazed border collie difficulties. My dingo/shepherd mix was tormented by a neighbor's OCD border collie her whole life. They are crazy. but the prong collar, well, that's to help you get "excited" as much as it is to help you "behave!" so maybe spokeswoman was putting it on for helping you get excited to do some sort of job... like protecting everyone, even that crazy collie.

so wear it with pride! my GSD/Formosan mix and my Sibe wear theirs with pride! (ok, maybe not pride...but they don't let it get them down!)
