Kickass, the doorstop dog, says his keeper has developed that dog thing that makes then jerk and whine in their sleep. In his case, he thinks it is related to dreaming about idiots in the legislature working to being guns into campus classrooms, objecting to UW classes that address racism, ignoring cow shit in the drinking water, and turning over natural resources to developers and realtors. Kickass fears that if the keeper adopts more dog ways, he might start using the dog way of marking territory and would probably begin up near the Capital which could get him into trouble. But he doesn’t seem to care. He says something has to be done, which is the way I feel when that damn neighborhood cat walks across the yard.
