The jury is still out on the changing seasons for local dog Burdock, according to sources close to the situation.
“He’s really a creature of habit,” said close friend Amy Shafak. “It takes him awhile to get used to a new season. The sights, the smells, the tastes, the temperature. And then once he’s finally settled in, things are changing all over again.”
The dog, who lives outside of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, which has a true four-season climate, has been contemplating a move. Friends say Burdock wants to move some place either much warmer, which was surprising given his Husky heritage.
“When he said he wanted to move, I was thinking Juneau or Reykjavik or something. But he’s look at places in L.A. and San Diego,” said Shafak. “Places with a pretty narrow range as far as seasons are concerned, but not the kind of climates I figured he’d be into.”
A local dog was let go from his security guard position after just two weeks on the job, according to sources close to the situation. DRP Protection Services, an area security contractor, has staffed up recently after winning a contract to provide security for a large, suburban construction project earlier this year.
“Frankie was a good dog,” said another newly-hired member of the security team, who asked to be identified only by his last initial, M. “He had the look, but I don’t think he really had the disposition.”
M told The Fluffington Post that Frankie often goofed around at work.
“We’re supposed to be doing rounds and he’s over here getting belly rubs or chewing on his foot,” said M. “It was only a matter of time until he got canned.”
DRP could not be reached for comment, though a want ad for a security guard appeared on Craigslist late yesterday.
Multiple reports and a source close to the situation have confirmed to The Fluffington Post that local bulldog Bud lost connectivity with the Internet early Monday. The issues has been ongoing for nearly two and a half minutes.
“He can’t load any websites or Facebook,” says Chester Burks. “He’s tried multiple browsers. He’s even cleared his cache and cookies. Nothing.”
Bud is attempting to reboot his router.
