My Dad used to do the same thing!

We didn't have a dog. My dad blamed it on ME!

I've always wondered where the phrase "gimlet eye" came from?

My dad blamed frogs? go figure - the poodle never got blamed for anything....seriously he was God's gift.

Now, my dad didn't blame the dog. He blamed either:
1. the invisible elephant under his chair
2. the man behind the barn in the picture that hung in our living room.

Aren't dads the best? And aren't dogs handy scapegoats?

Pfftt. Excuse me!

Oh my yes, dogs are handy for blame...but our Anatolian shepard mix really IS gaseous. Did you know that Beano helps dogs too? We got desperate one evening! She's loving, and stupid, and incredibly sweet, and if she didn't weigh 85 lb, she'd FLOAT!

At least the Malamute cross looks abashed when he lets go. It's kind of weird, but since he was injured, he hasn't been as gassy as before. Not a trade-off I'd ever make, but it's a small, silver lining, I guess.
