Ladies and Gentlemen, meet "Bowser," an Alpha Female who got into a bit of a tussle with Neighbor Richard yesterday over dog protocol at Our Favorite Starbucks. The fun began when Bowser sat down with her dog at the table next to Richard and his Irascible Sheepdog, Charlie. "Excuse me," said Richard politely, "but my dog isn't trustworthy ... he sometimes attacks other dogs." Charlie began looking at Bowser's dog as if it were an h'ors d'oeuvre, but Bowser seemed oblivious. She looked Richard right in the eye and barked, "Just like his Master, I'll bet!" Was she joking? I don't think so ... but something tells me her bark is worse than her bite ...!
