For those dogs out there who are superstitious, today's date of Friday the 13th is a day to dread. I have done some serious research into why the date is so scary to many of the humans and dogs, and I am going to share my thoughts with you on the subject
. Thirteen is a very scary number to parents. This is when their children officially become teen agers, and teen agers tend to strike fear into the heart of adults everywhere. It is the magical age where the once nice child becomes an obnoxious, annoying know it all. Many parents of toddlers dread the "terrible twos", but the teenage years make the terrible twos look like the tremendously fun twos. This is mainly a problem with human parents largely because dog teens are usually out on their own before they reach those formative years. Besides, Mommy dogs don't take the kind of guff off the puppies that the humans will. Angel Zoom Smokey has a whole corral of stuffies without eyes and noses so, if she had a real puppy, that puppy would know not to mess with his mommy! If I were a daddy dog, I would basically do what I do now with my life; lay around sleeping all day. Doesn't it make you wonder why the humans think they are so smart when they are the ones out working while their dogs stay home and relax?
In conclusion, I have found a way that the date does not bother me at all. I have not taken the page off yesterday's calendar so, around here, it is still Thursday the 12th. You'd think the humans would have enough common sense to do something so simple. However, I've learned not to expect much from the humans!
