Geese must be really stupid. I can understand flying away from the border collie, as he could, if he were rabid and trained to attack, pose an actual threat. But don't they wonder what the fake dogs are snarling at? Its an empty field! And don't they think its weird that there are two identical snarling dogs in the same field? They're just not thinking critically.
I totally want to go back there and see what those dogs are made of. There must be a goose abatement factory somewhere, just churning out snarling dogs. In this economy, though, maybe they'll have to diversify their market. You could give a Snarling Dog to your elderly neighbor along with an accompanying CD of snarly sounds to scare away would be intruders. You could give a Snarly Dog to your kid instead of going through the hassle of a real dog (very lifelike!) You could use it as a centerpiece at a picnic and hope that bees are just as stupid as geese (not likely.) I could give one to my mom just to freak her out, and give her something else to judge. Now all we need is a jingle for Snarly Dog.
I went Christmas shopping this morning, after being amazed and delighted by the Snarly Dogs, and saw some cocktail napkins that had one of those fifties mom-like women on them with a caption that read, "Life's too short to cook for you people." I thought they made them just for me, and almost felt bad when I didn't buy them, but I realized the only time I might use them is when I have company, and I don't want to be rude. Now, a refrigerator magnet with the same slogan would be perfect. I already have tea towel that says "A clean house is a sign of a wasted life" and together they would make the perfect set.
