Dogs With Jobs... and Attitude

I have a sick sense of humour.

Now that's been established, I stumbled on a couple of clips at YouTube, and just had to share.

Chapter 1 - "Guide Dog"
Applying for the Job

Chapter 2 - "Guide Dog"
Doing the Job

And to put my sick sense of humour into perspective, I think these videos are hilarious, and we've have a Resident Guide Dog right here in the house. A bonafide Resident Guide Dog With Attitude, no less.

If you know our Keeta, she's got attitude. She's got the attitude towards lots of things, especially Evil Cars that idle too long, cars that spew bad stuff into Her Air and make her sneeze every time.

And Keeta has got plenty to say to Dogs With Bad Manners. There are a few of those around, especially Jack and "Jerk" who live at the end of the street. Jack was the one who attacked one of our other guide dogs. And then there's Ivan and Igor who also live along Keeta's route, whose owner yells at them in his heavy Russian accent, "Ivan... Igor..." (I guess you just have to imagine the accent to make that work).

Now, she's never been responsible for squishing her owner like the guide dog in the video. In fact, on more than one occasion, she has been true to her Border Collie ways, and has herded Larry to safety, and blocked him from danger from cars with drivers who aren't looking. On one occasion, the save was so well done, that several people who witnessed the save, have come up to us some time later, just to tell us what a good dog she was.

Around here we love our Resident Guide Dog with Attitude. And if you don't already know Keeta, meet her right here.
