A good dog carrying a lot of baggage
Posted by K9Fan [Read other reviews by K9Fan]
I've seen a lot of dogs in my day, but none quite like Noir. There's something about her. There's this tension that hangs in the air and tugs on her leash. You want to unhook her, to let he run free, but you can't. This dog has buried more secrets than bones. She's been running from the past so long she doesn't even know how to stop. Whatever's got a hold on her won't let go.
She left in the night. I only got to spend a few hours with her, but they were the most fun I've ever had with a dog. The next morning I spotted Doublewide and Obscenity, two of Vermin's thugs, sniffing out her trail. I hope they never find her. Those damn dogs are ruining the west side.
A BEAUTIFUL DOG THAT I WISH WAS MINE FOREVER

HAD NO IDEA WHAT I WAS GETTING MYSELF INTO WHEN SHE WALKED IN MY YARD. SHOULD HAVE SAID NO, SENT HER ON HER WAY. BUT THOSE EYES. THOSE HARD LUCK EYES THAT CUT INTO MY SOUL LIKE A KNIFE. I WANTED TO WRAP MY ARMS AROUND HER, TAKE HER AWAY FROM ALL THIS AND GIVE HER A BETTER LIFE. BUT A GIRL LIKE NOIR, YOU CAN'T DO THAT. THE SECOND YOU GET CLOSE, SHE'S GONE. I GAVE HER A CAN OF SLOPPY JOE AND SHE LIKED IT A LOT. WE'LL ALWAYS HAVE THAT TO REMEMBER.
A DOGGONE TRAGEDY

As usual, the flea brains on this site only have half the story. Guess it falls on --BiGDOG-- to set the record straight? What a surprise!
I saw Noir in the park the other day. I've been following her story on the various dog message boards and review sites on the net for awhile (the ones that aren't so full of whiny idiots that is), and figured she warranted a closer look. Let me tell you, --BiGDOG-- hasn't been this moved by a dog since the first time I laid eyes on Panzer. No, Noir can't compete with Panzer, but there's something about her that draws you in.
I have to admit, Noir managed to cast her spell on me. That's right, even --BiGDOG-- got the sting! A lot of other dogs have tried to butter up to the -BiGDOG--. I'm talking dogs like Whippersnapper, Cheyenne, Homestead, Baker's Dozen, and Siren. All those dogs tried to work their charms on --BiGDOG-- and failed. Those aren't lightweights either.
But then again, those dogs don't a story like hers. Lucky for them.
For those of you idiots running about speculating, Noir was indeed in a relationship with Vermin for a few months. He's the one who knocked her up. When she tried to run off with the pups and escape Vermin, that sick son of a bitch had them killed. All but one, that is, which he is training to be his successor. I'm pretty sure Noir was even witness to the murder of Scrapper. Might be why she's been running from him.
As to what she's doing messing about with Rusty, I don't know. If she thinks that deranged old mutt can protect her or help her get her pup back, she's crazier than Vermin. Rusty's sick and on his last legs. He doesn't stand a chance, and his band of misfits are better suited for pranks than street warfare.
All of this drama puts me in the mood for some carefree dogs. I'm talking good old American dogs that don't gnaw at your soul or drag you into the mud. Dogs like Vulcan, Goldrush, Robert, Dutch Whimsy, and Recession. And don't even think about forgetting Panzer, --BiGDOG's-- all time favorite.
BETTER GO PLAY FETCH, BECAUSE --BiGDOG-- JUST THREW SOME KNOWLEDGE.

Sometimes I dream that I'm sitting in the back of the defunct Weinermobile as it careens driverless down the highway. At first I thought this was symbolic of the powerlessness I feel in life, but then I realized it's actually the Weinermobile's dream of being able to drive again.
Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
