Tail Strangulation and Mommy Talks to Temple Grandin!

Ok, so I will start with the important stuff. Odin tried to kill me with his tail and I have the pictures to prove it. This shouldn't be viewed by puppies, so if you are a puppy, please look away because this is the stuff of nightmares.

So this is where I realize, with a start, that he's trying to kill me.

And this is where my airway gets blocked.

And now I'm starting to panic.

And Odin releases me and I gasp for air.

And here, I'm too tired to fight.

And now, here's a link to a radio show that my mom called in on and she talked to Temple Grandin about me because she thinks I have a problem. My mom is at 42:45 on the podcast.

Good thing you figured out Odin's assasination plot before he could finish carrying it out. Are you sleeping with one eye open now, dude?

We love that Temple Grandin chick. Your mama sounded so much more intelligent on the phone than most people who call into radio shows. So, when do you want me to come over to socialize you? We can call it a playdate if you don't want anydog to know you're in counseling.

Goober love,

First of all I dont like the insinuation that Boston Terriers can't F someone up if they want to, I am FRICKIN TOUGH!! Also, I volunteer Tanner to be that well socialized dog to teach you how to be social!!

Hmm that odin needs something done to him. How dare he try to strangle you. Mom says it's neat your mom got to ask her question on the air.

You gotta watch out for those cats...you know. I'll volunteer to come socialize you...seriously, I'm a pretty well adjusted Boston...most of the time ;)

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Wow what a cool interview you did! I used to know Temple when I worked in veterinary publishing and didn't know she had a dog book out. She is a nice lady. We sure hope you are able to work Ike's dog aggression. How is he when he is in a yard and off leash around other dogs?

Love ya lots,

I knew cats were bad news! Hey man, do you want me to come over & socialize you? We just be playing, & taking walks on the leash but the humans can call it whatever they want!

You live in a dangerous place for sure. That cat-dog thing is freaking me out!


Sophie Brador said...

OMD! I am so coming back to listen to this. You mean the same Temple Grandin who did the cow thing and autism ... the one who Errol Morris interviewed in First Person? That is just too cool. You are a star, Ike!!!! BTW, mom met a wee pug today whose tongue was sticking out all the time. Very cute


Lorenza said...

Hi, Ike!
Why Odin tried to strangulate you??
I thought you two were good friends??
Maybe I can join you when you start your socialization time!
Kisses and hugs

I say cats are just plain trouble! At least you have those pictures now if he tries it again and you have to kick his butt!! You can claim self defense.

thank goodness he let you go, I was totally worried. =)

Wahahah!! LOL!! Ike you are one Drama King!!
Ok, good thing Odin didn't get away with his assasination plan.. I think you need bodyguards from now on.

Hey Ike,
Thanks for the heads up about how a cat will try to strangle you, now I can keep my eye on the 3 I live with.
I agree with Ike. Who does that lady think she is?? BT's can totally kick some ass ... we're just usually too busy lounging.

And just look at the cat's expression - It never changes the whole time!

Evil, I tell you!
