I can't help but notice that everyone who comes here seems to stick up for Lagniappe no matter what he does, and express the attitude that he's never at fault for anything.
Well it would be nice if that were true, but I'm telling you all that it's not. Yeah, he can do a pretty good impersonation of a nice, mellow well-behaved dog sometimes--like he's doing here in front of the stove--but appearances can be deceiving and that's really not how he usually is.In fact, all you have to do is search this blog for other articles about him and you'll see that he's quite the hooligan.
I know that most readers recall how when I was stuck on the roof, he wouldn't help, but there was also the time that he kept messing with me when I was painting the Lair.
It also wasn't too long ago that he busted a hole in my plastic window covering because there was a cat in the yard. I'm still pissed about that one.
Now I will give him credit--he does help around the kitchen. But I suspect that it's more from a desire to get the food than from any sort of dog altruism. And I still don't trust him completely ever since I caught him trying to burn the Lair down.
But he's got other hobbies, too.
He shoots cannon.
He vomits on people.
I'm telling ya, folks... life's never dull with a German Shepherd around. He's my buddy, but sometimes I'm tempted to trade him for a goldfish then flush the goldfish.
And I hope now that ya'll have seen what he's really like, you'll quit taking his side all the time.
