Ode to a retriever

(Continued from Page 4)
and fro between keeping and
selling for the better part of
two weeks, I suppose my mind
was made up. That dog and I
didn't get along. He liked me
alright, I guess, but he treated
me like the kid down the street
who, though okay, was never
enough of a jock for the cool
guys. That was it - he was
too cool for me.
The agonies of the resale need
not be described here in much
detail. As it turned out, my
want-ad did little good; a guy
in my house, upon hearing of
my offer, hustled up to me and
said, "I can't believe you're
selling that beautiful dog." (A
fine friend he was; I sunk into
my much-gnawed shoes.) "Con-
sider it sold," he went on. "How
much do you want for it?"
His enthusiasm bugged me.
"Well, have you had dogs be-
"Are you kidding?" he said.
"My family has two Goldens
already. I grew up with them.
Listen, he'll have a great home.
I'll be in an apartment next
fall that allows pets, and my
fiance can keep him until then."
The dog, meanwhile, was climb-
ing all over this guy, licking
him, yelping with joy as the
prospective buyer threw him
around the room. My hackles
rose at the scene, but my bet-
ter judgement and love of sleep-
ing in spoke up.
"Okay, when do you want
"Well, I'll be up at 8:00 to go
running." (Great, I thought, a
jock for a jock. I hadn't seen
8:00 in the morning since Ap-
ril.) "I'll pick him up then."
Pick him up he did, like some
hustler in a bar. He walks into

the room bright and early and
says, "Okay! Ready?" The dog,
ecstatic at the sight of his best
buddy, leaped from his break-
fast. While I carted out the
morning haul of newspapers
and dog-doo, as we used to call
it, the new owner threw him-
self on his stomach and cackled
madly as the dog raced up
and down his back. A minute
later he rose, all anxiousness
to get out for his morning run,
and said, "Okay, boy, let's go!"
My former dog, of course, was
more than ready to take off
with him. With nary a forlorn
glance back at me, suddenly a
former dog - owner, he trotted
merrily out the door at the
heels of his energetic new mas-
ter. It was the end of the af-
fair. I haven't seen him since.
TOLD ANOTHER friend of
the parting that night as I
basked in my new-found but
somewhat wistful freedom. She
prodded me for my reasons;
after hemming and hawing
about was was "right for the
dog" and about my need for
freedom, I had to admit the
truth; "Look, that dog's just
too rambunctious for me!" I
blurted, and my friend explod-
ed in laughter at, my admission
of what had been, I guess, ob-
vious to everyone. She was
shocked that the dog would still
be in my house.
Mortgage Bankers Assn. of
America says single-family
loans reached a record volume
of $15 billion in 1975,
It says this was 16 per cent
above the previous record of
$13.3 billion set in 1972,

"What do you say to your
ex-dog when you pass himn
the hall?" she asked. It was a
point I hadn't considered. A
little depressed, I said good-
night and retired to my newly-
deserted room. I looked at the
red plastic double-dish on the
floor, half-full, and wondered
what you're supposed to do with
left-over Puppy-O's when you
don't have a puppy any more.
