Cutting to the Chase

“The thing is,” Bernie said, “I’m pretty sure I recognized that guy’s voice. Remember when we got that ransom call?”

Ransom call? Those had come up before. I had that feeling of coming very close to getting it. We were in the Porsche, me riding shotgun. I picked up a whiff of cat, spotted one in an alley, lifting a front paw in a delicate sort of way that rubbed me wrong.

“The call where the guy said, ‘We’ve got your client, Kelo Printz. He’s healthy at the moment. Whether he stays that way is up to you.'”


“That’s them up ahead,” Bernie said, pointing his chin at an old dusty van down the street. “Let’s see if they lead us to the honey-pot.”

Honey pot? I wasn’t too sure about that. I’d sampled honey in the past. Great taste, but the inside of my mouth had gotten all sticky. Maybe this time I’d try not eating the whole pot. Just a thought.

    A whole pot of honey? How much do you weigh anyway? You seem to have an impulse control problem with regard to food. Be careful…a perp might give you "doctored" meat and then you'd be out of commission.

    To C. Harris: Excellent comment on honey. Deleted totally accidentally by an incompetent who lacks the know-how to make it reappear. But let's not forget the part about being a hundred-plus pounder, and pretty active, too.

    100+ pounds, that would explain your appetite. The largest dog I've owned weighed 75 pounds and according to the vet she was 20 pounds overweight. She was always hungry and I had to even hide and secure the garbage from her. (She also found the chocolate easter egg Mom hid from me but that is another story)

    I am puzzled how you can be friends with Iggy who is so much smaller than you. It seems like you would inadvertently hurt him while playing. Of course, little dogs are fast little ankle biters which might even things out.

    Healthy dogs love to eat. One time my dog (Doberman) sniffed out a huge sour cream coffee cake that I'd put on the kitchen counter. He ate the whole thing. He was bloated and very uncomfortable afterward, but a good run did the trick. As Chet says, exercise burns the calories.

    My dog's best friend was a mutt one-third his size and they really loved one another. Both loved chasing horses….standardbreds….around the fields. Brandy was always very gentle with small things…even tree frogs.

    One of my 100 lb dog's best buds is a 10 lb. poodle – they run in the woods together with the smart poodle letting my big dog do the brush clearing ahead of him! Whenever the small dog gets too far behind he barks and my Golden mix stops and waits for him. Big or small, golden or poodle if you are friendly and love life that includes a good run in the woods and some great smells you can be friends! If only humans remembered that concept.

    I knew an eight- or ten-pound yorkie named Katie who owned a German Shepherd named Blaze. And Blaze was no coward– Katie was just more dominant. She was bossy. At dog-o-ramas, when those dogs and our dogs (a golden and a yellow lab) got together to have a pack party, Katie was perfectly capable of taking care of herself, and if in the confusion of frantic water retrievals at the dog park, she did happen to get run over, she'd give the offender what-for. So far as I can tell, dogs don't discriminate.
