Chapter 4, Page 36 Babysitting p2

The sort-of-a-dog.

This does not bode well.

What sort of maniac names a dog like that "Angel"?? Mini-demon, maybe. Abomination of Desolation, perhaps. But Angel??

Yeah, I know what Mary feels like. My neighbors have a dog like that, named Princess. Barks at all hours of the night. >.<

"Angel" was one of the less-appropriate names for pets I've run into. "Abomination of Desolation" might have been more fitting.

I feel sorry for that poor dog. He'd have been much better off in another, and more ordered, household.

Definitely. I think little yapper dogs like that are so manic because they live in constant fear of being stepped on.

And this... well, Friday's strip will show a little bit of what the poor creature went through.

(Just a reminder for Dad, I'm pretty sure Angel was a 'she'. Spayed, but still female.)

I remember one little terror (I mean terrier) that was across the street from me. One time it went chasing after me when I was riding my bike. It grabbed firmly onto my rear pantleg. I didn't flee or anything. I just kept peddling the bike.

Which means the little yapper was lifted off the ground and smacked back onto it while going 15-20 mph. He lasted three peddle cycles. ^^;;

Don't get me wrong. I love the Goddess's children dearly. I'm both a dog and a cat person. But that little yapper killed several of the chickens my parents used to raise and was a true bastard of a beast. I felt no qualms about continuing to ride my bike rather than try to pry the little spit off of my pants.
