Out of the Blue

Hudson the wonder dog and I visited the Devicers' for a bit yesterday to renew her friendship with their pair of pooches. Since the arrival of her young ward Gunnar, she has fully emerged as an extremely alpha dog, and has taken to putting other dogs in what she deems their appropriate places on a regular basis. Things went great on our visit, helping confirm that she doesn't seem to have a problem with her existing friends, and that she seems to have more of an issue with male dogs than females. Sure enough, this morning walking with her pack of trail friends she got to face off with the male Irish Wolfhound who ran over one of our Smurfs a while back, and demonstrated her wild (dare I say insane) side by completely backing down this 150+ lb monster with a display of furious barking. As the old saying goes, it's not the size of the dog in the fight... it's the size of the fight in the dog.

It doesn't say anything about him being polite. It says the teacher was polite, and the kid became "defiant and disorderly." Just because the kid's mom is in Iraq doesn't give him the right to disobey the rules.

Let's see, first few minutes of class gets missed or kid has to hang up on his mom whom he may never see alive again..

Yeah right. An SFC in a support battalion? She probably talks to her son every single day. Hell, some of the camps in Iraq have better living conditions than some of the barracks in CONUS.

And before you jump on me, I am a soldier, and I've been to Afghanistan. I'm going to Iraq this fall. If I had kids, I'd want them to stay out of as much trouble as possible while I was away.
