Maybe a "placer" would be better than "retriever."
And while you're at it, please don't call Bentley "Swiss" in reference to his dog (or to any other dog). He's from the U.K., not Switzerland, and "Swiss" is the name of one of those Germanic sounding cars.
I'm sure that Dizzy has made a few good retrieves since coming to Bentley. But he's still just a pet, and when he's not there, I'm at least feeling the same way I did in the past.
And he's not just a pet either. He does make my life easier when I can't be at my desk. I don't have to worry about him at night if I don't want to. He's still a child in a pet's body, and he's happy to have other people look after him in my absence.
Still, even with all of his other good qualities, I can't help but wonder how the city has a dog park for its police officers to walk and play with their pets, but I can't even get a day off. After all, who am I to complain about being overworked when I'm making the kind of money I am? I can take off whenever I choose, but when it comes to my dog, things are different.
Maybe I should be grateful for those times I don't have to make Dizzy be a pet. If his protection isn't required at work, why should I? But when I'm with him, I know that he does good work, and that's the important thing. His obedience and good training is all part of that.
And he's still the same person I've always known. Just because you can train a dog doesn't mean it's no longer a dog.
If you're wondering why I have such a problem with Bentley being called a "placer," you don't need to wonder anymore. I'm the one who wanted to retrain Dizzy for all those years. It wasn't something he volunteered for, and I'm not sure he ever understood 0b46394aab
