My Dog Will Eat You!

My wife wanted to give any would be criminals or trespassers fair warning.
The attack dog would have come closer... but  he's scared of the sign.

Guster, the dog of doom, will devour your toes in a fit of fury should you dare to pass through into his domain.

I hope everyone had a pleasant weekend. I suppose I did. Although it was filled with missed opportunities.

However, now that it's Monday, I'm anxious to touch on the Comment Of The Week from last week. I don't have travel too far back in time to look. Turns out Friday's post had lots of great comments to choose from.

I think within a few seconds of the post going live (well, 32 minutes) I had someone expressing their displeasure with my portrayal of Esperanto. Then, a little while later I got this beaut:


After the first poster made his comment I started to backpedal some from my original point, but after I thought about it for awhile I decided I think I will stand by my assessment. If calling it a noble failure makes me ignorant, well, then people don't have wings, or something.

It's beauties like that that make me happy I put up without 1000 spam emails a day that I get (well, maybe 5) with folks trying to sell me coffee beans or porn. I thought I would get tons of people upset over the Chiropractor stuff, not Esperanto.

THIS IS THE LAST WEEK before the A-Z challenge begins. I'm still considering scrapping my whole month's worth of stuff and starting over. If so, I'll have a busy weekend next weekend writing new posts.

You're thinking of scraping your posts? Well, that will give you something to do next weekend.

Will your dog really eat me? I'm imagining this Guster as a playful 8 lb. Yorkie. ???

Yeah that looks like a real vicious dog. Though probably better than a bulldog. I mean a bulldog would only attack you if you were two feet away and went after his bone.

Perhaps the contributor should have used the word "ill informed" then. As indeed many people are about the facts concerning Esperanto

Don't underestimate the power of a mutilated toe. I mean, that could mess up your gait for the rest of your life.

I'm right with you on Esperanto. I understand and can follow the rationale of creating a "universal" language. And English is actually a difficult language to learn, as it's full on inconsistencies and such.

But I think the premise of Esperanto ignores the most important facet of language: the language of commerce. Maybe if Russia was the lone economic superpower, we'd all know some Russian.

I do like the random trolls that pass by my blog.

I got nothing...

That's unfortunate, but such is the cost of putting ourselves out there. And I will be sure to never trespass on your lawn. I like my toes the way they are. :)

I still have s-z to get through. Gah.

lol on the Esperanto. Who knew it would creat such a firestorm.

I get the Christian dating people a lot.

Anonymous comments ever seem to be either distasteful or critical, but they can be fun to read.

And speaking of spam emails, I keep getting them for Viagra and Bank of America. Yeah, my account was hacked (wink wink).

I do love when Anonymous comments. Anonymous is never nice, always rude, a know-it-all and a blowhard. Guess that's why the name Anonymous.

I love your dog's name, Guster. My dog is Vegas and she's a hyperactive little creature with one blue and one brown. She looks crazed. I tell people she had rows of sharp teeth that will bite through anything. ;)

I peered closely at this picture and did identify this attack dog. Struck fear right into my core. It's hard to take too seriously the comments of someone unwilling to put their name with them. Unless of course, they are threatening to kill you. That might make me nervous.

Yikes, only a few more days to AtoZ challenge. I'm totally freaking out. I've only written A through G, without the letter C. I've got some major work to do. :0

I'll bet the sign will deter some people, if the size of the dog isn't immediately obvious. Though toes are valuable, at any rate . . .
