Coach's First Report Card
Coach's first report card came back yesterday. While Coach has been a good boy at his commands, his behavior in the kennel needs some work. It seems that there is a roommate problem. We are not sure, but there seems to be some problem with food. Perhaps the roommate is throwing food around and Coach is getting a little irritated and making his irritation known?
"Hey, dude, this is my side of the kennel. Keep your dang treats over there. Just for that, I'm going to eat this treat!"
Or maybe it went like this
"Dude," (I don't know why Coach calls all his roommates Dude, but he does) "Look, if you aren't going to eat fast enough, then I'm going to help you out and finish your bowl. Shove over slow poke."
Now, admittedly, in the first scenario, Coach is a bit of a neatnik, obnoxious type and I would be mad at him too. And he doesn't really come off better in the second scenario either. Kind of a bully at worst and a little piggy at best. But they said they have a new roommate that he seems to like. And frankly, who hasn't gone through college and had a bad spell with roommates?
Sometimes, you just get a bad roommate. Sometimes, you just need to change to a new roommate. Someone who can be your friend.
They also said that Coach is "very sweet" and "loves to work". We hope that means that once his roommate situation calms down, he can settle in and really wow them with his command knowledge.
