I know that many of you have the opportunity to get out into the community on a regular basis, and there as a post about wild life, well today during my inspections, I came across a wide range of mans best friend. One was a rottweiler who was not happy that I was knocking on the door of his owners house. (No one else was home). Then I had a hyper little Jack Russell that was trying to act like a rottweiler and yapping like crazy. He even bounced off the window when I started to walk away.

After these adventures with dogs, I was wondering what others do to prevent having to return to the office with a canine attached to a leg or an arm? I hear that 99 cent cheeseburgers from McDonald’s has the same effect on dogs as flowers and candy has on women.
