Otis is quite the little handful. Being part sheepdog, part Australian Sheperd, and teething means that no pants leg is safe. His herding instinct is very powerful, and no instruction on our part seems to cure him of it. Anybody have any experience with a herding-type dog? Is there any hope of “breaking” him of this behavior?
Anyway, the kids are getting especially frustrated. I had “the responsibility” talk with them this morning. I used their adoption as an example, saying that, although being a parent can be very frustrating, I couldn’t just send them back to Korea and say “I don’t want these kids anymore”.
Zaphod looked at me with a straight face and said, “Besides, then you’d have to pay shipping and handling”.
