APOLOGY…

…to this guy…

You should know who this is…if you read and retain…I came home from school one day decades ago and was immediately greeted by the above (ears down, tail wagging uncontrollably, jumping all over me..)…I, of course, was just as excited to see him and acted accordingly…I petted his head, wrestled a bit with him and let the excitement recede…After 45 minutes or so, my Mom approached and asked if I knew what I forgot to do that morning before going to school…’Fuck’, I thought…I forgot to unplug the toaster…nope…I didn’t turn off the oven that the cinnamon buns were in…shit, I could’ve burned the house down…not good…Not that either…My mind was racing at this point…Although I don’t remember all the exact details of this day, I can infer that it wasn’t during wresting season as I probably would’ve went off on my Mom for even talking to me…(Remember, I was a miserable son-of-a-bitch starving myself to make weight on Wednesday or Saturday..)…She said again I was wrong on both guesses…As Rambo still showed his excitement for me being home (an hour in now..), Janet informed me that I failed to bring Rambo ‘in’ before heading off to school…that means he was outside for at least 8 hours by himself…all alone with his chain that only allowed about a 50 foot radius…poor dog…I felt sick to my stomach when I was told the news…How could I do that to my buddy…You know what though, menacing Rambo didn’t care…No one was allowed to walk by our house without him barking to make his presence known…If you had male genitalia, forget it, you were fucked…Rambo didn’t like that…(sorry Mike Plasco..)…A pretty female face and body though..(Alauna, Karen, Carie Ann..), Rambo was okay with that…Just like he was okay with me forgetting to bring him ‘in’ that morning…

I know, I know…we all love our dogs to death…And this is just me ranting about my ‘favorite’ dog…but Rambo was special…after the 42nd time he was reported to the Cops for attacking someone…or something…they finally arrived at our doorstep to take him away…we knew we could be losing him…Our ‘special’ dog just sat behind the screen door (that he ripped through plenty of times..) while my parents interacted with the authority and did just that…SAT…no barking, no violent actions towards people being outside our house…he just sat there, ears up and alert like a true German Shepherd looking the part…Did I mention how fucking smart this dog was……..

Here’s a picture of him…in case you were wondering what he looked like…

Yours truly…

RAMBO
