I remember growing up that the family dog had puppies on my bed once, in the middle of the night. I woke up to whinning and screamed for my parents. Grossest thing I had ever seen at the time. And I had to go and sleep on the couch for the rest of the night! The dog had a nice bed made up for her and it wasn't good enough Fast forward 15 years or so...Dad's dog is deaf and going blind. She is outside doing her thing before bed and my Dad hears what sounds like a baby crying out in the yard. (We live in the country) So Dad takes his flashlight and goes out and investigates. There is a pack of coyotes just on the other side of the fence, trying to get the dog to come to them. Well the dog lives since she couldn't hear the coyotes! My sister in laws boyfriend's dog is so dumb it ran up from the field with a stick in its eye...it's even dumber with one eye....and he is always trying to herd the horses and carries around hunks of wood or 4x4's.
