The Harsh Truth About Boston Terriers

Okay. I've listened to many blithering bloggers bragging about Bostons. And while The Swami can blither with the best of them, we need a dose of reality.

I'm sure that it is fun to watch your terrier running in circles, but don't you often ask yourselves, "Is this really a trait that will enable my dog to herd yaks?" Of course, you look for other "endearing" traits to justify you feeling for pooch. You think of the warm slobbery licks to you face from your little Boston terrier. Well, if you like those licks you'll love getting licked by your very own herd of yaks. University studies have measured yak drool at up to 65 gpm.

Most of you who have read this far are probably already wondering how much of a trade-in would a reputable yak dealer give for my Boston terrier. Well, on the wild chance that there could still be someone that is not ready to trade in their Boston terrier for a Mongolian yak, just how much fermented yak milk does your little terrier give you?! Case closed.

Let's face it, folks. Your Boston terrier, no matter how much love you give it, will NEVER be a yak!!

A Boston Terrier is a great yak herder, my girl Miss Maeve Bean (Baker's grandma) herds 17 hand Tennessee Walkers on a regular basis, how much larger can a Yak be? Also I'm not much into fermented yak milk...Barcardi with diet coke is more my style. Dog slobber is much preferable to yak...can't imagine using more than a wash cloth to remove the evidence of heavy kisses....sooo from this BT lovers view point I can't argue....these delightful little dogs WILL never be yaks! I am sure yaks are WONDERFUL animals but I'll stick with goats, horses, mule and Boston Terriers! Enjoyed the laugh in any case...

You mean you'd choose yaks over your grand-dog Boomer, or Julie's Chet Baker? I mean, they're just so cute! Tell us, are yaks *cute*?
P.S. Your blog makes me LOL! Thanks for the chortles!

Trust me, holding a yak in your lap will make a much greater impression on you than any dog. [Even our Sheltie Roxy, but please don't tell her that]

Your grandson-dog Boomer takes great offense at this post.

Please reason with Boomer and explain to him that once he has his yak herding diploma his ranking will move up.

Dear Swami,

At first, I thought this would be a Yak-Attack. LOL! Chet Baker, Boomer, and my two Boston females could round up a herd of anything. You see, they don't realize they are under 25 pounds. My dogs will roll a Boxer mix who has a 24 inch inseam. And, they do it sweetly and completely. They get the job well done with bonus licks at tne end for their victim and anyone within reach. Yaks? No problem.

Mary has just provided more confirmation that there is a vocation for everyone. "...Boxer mix who has a 24 inch inseam." Apparently there must be a tailor out there making pants for dogs.

That will be a real comfort to those who do not want their children to see nekkid animals.

Have you considered writing a book? Your comments always have a surprising twist at the end and tickle the heck out of me!
