By TED KREC It's becoming more and more apparent to me that we truly are a mixed-up people. The Europeans use the dachshund to r o o t o u t badgers. The O r i e n t a l s t r a i n t h e corm o r a n t as a f i s h - c a t c h e r . E v e n t h e Hunza herdsmen in faro f f N o r t h Kashmir employ dogs at round-up time. Every other place in the world, animals work for people. This is the only country I know of where people work for animals! And they're not even tax- deductible! I'll show you what I mean. I hestitate to think how many dogs there are in Long Beach and environs. How many of them could pull a wagon the way dogs in the Arctic pull sleds? I'll tell you--none of them. They're loo far out of condition from a soft life. DORS aren't the only offenders--there are rats, birds, monkeys, even fish. DON'T GET me wrong, I'm an animal lover. 1 must be, because some of my staunches! friends keep telling my wife I'm more interested in monkey business t h a n 1 am my job and that I'm going steadily to the dogs. But it burns me up to see people treating animals better than they do other people--ini:iiitlins .numbers of their ow.n families'. I always have serious doubts about a man's mental condition when 1 see him driving through town with a silly looking pooch riding along. Do you have anybody to d r i v e you around? I think they should cither teach these dogs to drive or let them walk! And how about people who talk baby-talk to cats and birds? Or, worst of all, the people who dress their dogs in those ridiculous sweaters. Can you top that? Here's this pooch with a natural fur coat and some silly citizen drapes him with a sweater! Have you ever been to someone's home and had the dog fang you in the fibula? As you're struggling to disengage the doughty heasl, the hostess will say: "Well, no wonder -- you were going to sit in 1'ifi's chair! Poor little darling --did the nasty man hurt her?" Then the gracious hostess usually ends up kissing this homely mutt and glaring daggers at you as you hobble around the room. * « · · WE WERE at someone's home one time where they had one of these domineering dogs. We had to go there, we found out, because the dog always liked to be home at dark! Anyhow, we had brought along a cake for our host and hostess, and while we stood there, our hostess ran her finger through the icing of the cake and let this pooch lick it off!! I was ready to leave right then, but my wife soothed the troubled waters. Then I couldn't get rid of the blamed dog. He sat right next to me all day. When they served us some wine, they also served the dog some milk in a saucer. So 1 kept slipping a little wine into the dog's dish. He loved it and got looped! They were a mighty troubled couple when we l e f t -wondering what was wrong with Hint inebriated pooch! In closing, I'd just like to comment about the story ] read where Lassie was flying back to Hollywood from New York. This dog (you know her--her snoot's so long and pointed she could eat olives out of a jug) had TWO first-class seats reserved for her on the plane, so the story said. Had I been on that flight I fear I would have been tempted strongly to belt that colicky collie off the seats with my hat and cry: "All right, Fido--back to the baggage car!" An animal is still an animal, in my book!
