Letter to the editor: Something to the classic excuse

Have you heard the students excuse for not presenting his homework? ”The dog ate my homework”.
This is a 100 percent valid excuse for not presenting the documents.
I retired from medicine about 6 years ago and as a part-time job took up dog walking. This has been a very rewarding experience. During this time, I have noticed that many canines have a taste for paper products. Just the other day our grand-dog ate a $5 check from King Sooper.
Have you been to the dog park lately? Arvada has a wonderful park on 64th Ave. Just drop a tissue and it is likely that within a few seconds a nearby pup will scarf it down. One pup I know loves the UPS guy, he thinks the packages are for him, he loves to rip them open and eat the cardboard. Labs and Golden Retrievers are some of the worst culprits. Some of them will eat anything, plastic bags, paper towels, tennis balls. It is not unusual for a veterinarian to have to operate on some pooch every week or so to remove pieces of tennis ball, socks, and other items. Please be careful about leaving these items alone with your pup.
So, when the student presents with the excuse, “the dog ate my homework”, believe it! At least the first time.
Bill Hinesar,
Arvada
