Are Puppies Humor Suckers?

I swear that every since devil dog entered our home, I have been completely sucked dry of every ounce of funny that I may have ever had. It's true that the amount of humor I actually have has been debated widely, with responses ranging from "none at all ever" from Mrs. Stickman to "funniest frickin' bastard to ever live" from me.

I think the act of dog ownership (or puppy ownership, at least) is so physically and emotionally exhausting that there is just no energy left for funny generation. Sure the dog does funny, humorous things sometimes, but mostly it just barks and pisses. We keep telling ourselves it is going to get better, that we are just in the puppy training phase before the years of dog enjoyment. Yet, it just seems to get worse!

I have never in my life hated and loved something so much at the same time. And the worst part is, I knew this would happen. I knew that the dog would piss me off beyond belief and I would want to get rid of it (or kill it), and yet at the same time I would love it so much that I would not be able to bear the thought of it not being part of my life any more.

Damn dog.

So as I sit and remember a time when I had no dog but lots of funny, I am saddened. Yet I am joyful that the little fur-ball from hell has joined our home. Oh life, why must thou be full of enigmas?
