I don't believe so...he thought he was a Billy Bad a** by saying that. If he didn't weigh like 500lbs (overexaggeration but he is pretty big) I would have taken care of him myself. I don't perceive anyone as being "macho" when you say you are going to throw a 10lb animal into a HUGE river with a very strong current. He was a jerk, anyways, and I am glad I left. I saved Sambo and got a better job. Another happy ending to an almost sad story.

Thank you. He was actually born all black and over the last 8 years he has gradually lightened to his present "dapple grey" coloring.

This thread has made me really happy guys! Being a freshman at college, I never get to see the dog from home I'm used to. This was nice seeing everyone else's pets.

Beth....thats one thing I do miss about our old house in the country. We had a family of racoons....the momma was so cute waddling with her little ones following. We had a lot of deer too and a few possums. The only wild things we see here are a few crazy neighbors and the occasional rabbits ;)
