Clyde The Dog Inspires Us All No matter what, he 'II never enter a 'doggie' marathon Occasionally, I take a walk along a popular running path in my neighborhood where I have always been impressed with Clyde. Clyde is a nondescript dog and a familiar fixture to everyone who uses the path. He sprawls under a tree every morning while his owner pursues leg cramps. Clyde's tongue is about three feet long and hangs limp. His sad eves reflect a look that says it all. "Who ARE all these people?" He moves only when he hears the motor of the car turn over for home. I have always envied Clyde. He doesn't cave in to guilt because his owner is "into sweat." There's no pressure to join the parade of dogs who leave him in the dust and who kill themselves trying to keep up with their masters. He has no illusions about his soft, lumpy body. At Wit's End By Erma Bombeck My husband brought home a form last week that I feared might change Clyde's life. It was an entry blank for a two-mile walk/run for dogs. I couldn't believe it. But there it was. All dogs who entered had to have rabies inoculations, be licensed, be kept on a leash at all times, be accompanied by an adult, and if their behavior was unruly or might prove hazardous, they could be asked to leave the race. Female dogs in any stage of heat would not be allowed to compete. Entrants were urged to send in their $12 entry fee and get a free red bandanna. It sounded so innocent, but you don't have to be a genius to figure out what is coming. Cute doggie designer shorts and shirts, Paw shoes (four of them) that cost $80, special watches to record time, sweatbands to keep their ears out of their eyes, ankle weights to build muscles, a monthly magazine showing top canine runners, five pages in the phone book of vets who specialize in runner's injuries. Meals planned around the dog's running schedule so he doesn't run on a full stomach ... driving 70 miles Sunday morning so your dog can run in a 10K and get a loaf of bread, a six-pack and a T-shirt when he crosses the finish line. A psychiatrist for the dog who, because of injuries for some reason, can't run and no longer wants to go on living. I wanted to find Clyde and say, "Hang tough! Don't let the pooch-jocks intimidate you. I know what I'm talking about. They tried to do it to me. 'Eat like a bird ... get exercise.' Have you ever looked at a bird, Clyde? Good legs, but no waistline. They're all built like avocados. Speed skaters exercise and look at those thighs. I'm telling you, don't cave in." I looked for Clyde the day of the race and found him sprawled out in his usual spot, lying on his back with four feet suspended in midair. His mouth was open and flies were buzzing around his eyes. Some dogs can't be bought ... not even for a red bandanna. Club News Hand-in-Hand Circle Discusses Pecan Sales The Hand-in-Hand Circle of the King's Daughters and Sons met recently at the home of Edith Julian and Vera Kuhn.
