CAUGHT IN THE RIPTIDE ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!


Our Favorite Starbucks went to the dogs this morning courtesy of a ten-year-old, 165-pound Newfoundland named Riptide. The fun began when Top Talent Agent David asked me to watch Riptide for a few minutes while he went to get a quick cup of coffee. "You know Riptide," he said, "There's not much to watch, he'll just plop himself down in the shade." I love dogs and am particularly fond of Riptide, so watching him was no problem ... or so I thought. The minute David disappeared into Starbucks, all hell broke loose. Riptide sprang into action, pulling me from table to table in a Frenzied Bid for Food. "What's that, a Grizzly Bear?," asked Gil, as Riptide lunged at his scrambled eggs. "No, it's just a Big, Hungry Dog," I explained. The next thing I knew, Riptide changed direction, lurching wildly towards what was left of Susan's muffin at the next table over. "Help," I cried, "For the love of God, somebody stop this Crazy Beast!" And just then, David returned with his Secret Weapon, the only thing known to keep Riptide under control: A Large Vanilla Frozen Yogurt!

Not sure who weighs more, you or the Rip :o) Glad that no animals were harmed in the posting of your entry (maybe just a bruised ego).

Hey, cool to see a picture of you! Awww, man, I'm jealous...it looks so pleasant there, sitting outside enjoying the fresh air and the usual 7th and Montana antics!

That is one big dog. Good thing he didn't take off with you in tow!

Hugs, Beth

I think you are just a hero for offering to watch him with your wearing white! LOL

That is quite large dog to watch over. Very brave of you to accept.

Looks like Riptide was the only one of aware of just why he was so big - FOOD! I would love a dog that big. Although Pickles is a hefty 65lbs and tends to carry me at times. (Hugs)Indigo

The thought of you being dragged across the pavement nearly made me choke on my morning coffee. I hope the dogs ok?
Gaz ;-)

I witnessed Marty trying to control Riptide with both hands wrapped around his leash, like a tug-of-war! Kudos to Marty for holding down the fort! Cheers, Susan
