Letter: What happened to the guard dog?

Imagine if you purchased a guard dog to protect your property. Unfortunately, the dog is overly aggressive and attacks almost everyone it comes into contact with: Friends, neighbors, children, the mail man, even the local constable are attacked. At least, you think, with such a nasty dog standing guard, my property is safe.

Finally, the day comes when the real thief arrives and the nasty guard dog has the opportunity to prove its worth. How does the dog react? He doesn’t bark, he doesn’t growl, and he certainly doesn’t bite. To the astonishment of everyone but the thief, your dog approaches the thief and playfully licks him as the thief goes about his business of robbing you blind.

Welcome to the United States of America.
