When Peter and I were there, we lectured Fred about a man of his advanced taking such chances. We walked the dogs with him, each of us taking only one to show him how much easier and safer that was. But he won't listen, he just can't bear to leave any one of them home while he walks the other. So there goes Fred, hanging on for dear life while those Rhinos run him ragged, and he gets a very close look at every immovable object in the neighborhood.
John,

My pups are tiny rhinos and I have yet to be slammed into all of the good things in my neighborhood. My question for you is how advanced am I and in what areas? I am so sorry that YOU are not as advanced as me except, of course, in age where you are far more advanced.

Fred

Suffice it to say that Fred is not the "alpha dog" in his pack (he's not even second in command).

John,

Trust me when I say that I am the alpha however, when I have my back turned and they see a dog or cat and they lunge it does not matter if you are the alpha, the beta or the zeta. On the other hand if I am facing forward then I have the control, oh yeah!!!
