Some dogs are just excellent examples of their breed. These champions display an alert, inquisitive intellect; they are bright-eyed, obedient, and possessed of a natural grace that attracts admiring attention wherever they go.
Angus is not one of those.
After our old shop dog Walter retired to doggie heaven, his presence was sorely missed. In an effort to find a replacement, Tom researched various breeds, looking for a friendly sort who would come to work and greet the customers like old Walt had. When a local breeder advertised a litter of Golden Retrievers, Tom decided to drive out to have a look. There were three puppies left, all males. Two of them were engaged in an energetic tug of war with an old sock, while the third sprawled on his back on the lawn, legs akimbo, batting lazily at an overhanging dandelion. When Tom reached over to scratch his fat little belly, he grabbed ahold of that hand with all four little paws, and wouldn't let go.Needless to say, little Angus went home with Tom that night, and started coming to work soon after. He eventually lost his puppy belly, but hasn't yet outgrown his unique personality, which might be described as just a wee bit goofy.
