I've no doubt he's referring to an old acquaintance of yours. They could very well be one and the same.

That may or may not be true.

One of my dogs bites me every third day, and the other one runs away every other day. They'd make great therapy dogs.
frustrated. After a few "what the fucks?" "i suck"s and a break on shore I convinced her to get back to casting. I clearly remember this question/statement "so you actually think this is fun. These fish are fucked"

Our dogs have kept me off of the Secret Service's radar and the Do Not Fly list for quite some time now. I'm also allowed to drive a car, own firearms, and my marriage remains intact.

But canine companionship will soothe the sting of not receiving a cheap card, or the stark realization that you might never get laid unless you pay for it? That works?

Wish I'd known that fifty years ago.

Can anybody explain to me the difference between a dog and a therapy dog aside from the fucking nauseating smugness that exudes from the owner of a "therapy" dog?

Not an expert, but there's different kinds of therapy dogs

1) actual trained therapy dogs :bow
w) dogs that fuctards lug around all over the place i.e restaurants, airplanes, shopping, etc because they don't want to fucking kennel their dog when they should. :vomit
@) any pooch that makes you feel better. These are the type that most of us here on teh suk have. :cool

While it's obvious that most of us recognize the therapeutic value of a dog, actual therapy dogs are trained and certified by a handful of different agencies. This training is fairly diverse, but includes teaching the dog to behave in certain ways based on human emotional and/or behavioral cues. For example, a therapy dog can cue on an autistic child engaging in self-harming behavior and be trained to lay it's head on the lap/torso of that child to distract and sooth him/her.

Service animals are trained differently. Seeing eye dogs are obvious. Service dogs for people with profound physical limitations can open doors, fetch clothing or medication bottles, or alert for problems.

A lot of people confuse therapy dogs with service dogs. Therapy dogs are not recognized under the Americans with Disabilities Act for access to many of the public places that service dogs are allowed. Further, it has become somewhat popular in our narcissistic society for folks who want their pets to go everywhere with them to get a mail-order certificate (and an official-looking doggy vest) and claim them as therapy animals. I suspect it's these assholes that you're referencing.

I'm a dog lover, but it's obvious to me when people relate better to animals than members of their own species. That being said, there are only two types of fishermen--assholes, and members of your own party. (apologies to Gierach)

Yeah, I gotta admit that's always been my problem. Leave the dog and get out.
