(from the files) 489. hound, terrier and retriever

i have been master to a beagle, a cairn terrier and a labrador retriever.
parker, the beagle, was a selective listener, and a prolific food burglar.
comet, the cairn, was a defiant defender of mail truck attacks, and storm cloud coward.
currently, annabel, the labrador, is ... well ... a labrador.

their only common denominators were love of walks, car rides, treats and tug of war.
oh yeah ... and that i was really master of none.

When all is said and done, it's really the animals who own us.
