I grew up on a pig farm, sir, where all the animals, even the birds that cleaned our teeth, were workers, not pets. I never even had a dog, because, as my mom would say, ''You can't eat love.'' And as my mom's friend, Ron, would say, ''The donkey died. You're the donkey now, Kenneth.'' Yep, just another animal. It might as well be a rat. An adorable rat who shows you it's okay to be scared during a thunderstorm. why, it seems crazy to me to even give a dog like this a name. For example, Bandit. And that one's Reggie. And up there's Digger.
