Give Me A Treat

Or else

BRIGHAM CITY — It wasn’t his dog’s bark or bite that had a Brigham City man concerned, it was his aim.

A man was recovering Wednesday after being shot over the weekend by his dog.

A 46-year-old Brigham City man and a friend were duck hunting Sunday about 8:30 a.m. on the north end of the Great Salt Lake near the bird refuge, about 10 miles west of Brigham City.

The two had their canoe-like boat in a shallow marsh area when the man got out of the boat to either set up or collect decoys. He laid his 12-gauge shotgun across the bow of the boat, said Box Elder County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Kevin Potter.

After the man got out of the boat, a dog inside the vessel jumped up on the bow and stepped on the gun. The gun fired and shot the man in the buttocks.

“Oops, sorry dude. Didn’t realize it was loaded. My bad.”

    Now I’m hearing Forrest Gump: “In the butt-ocks, sir!”

    Maybe the Army needs to step up their recruitment of dogs. Dog sharpshooters…I can imagine a few of our enemies would not be too happy about that.

    Claude looks as if he’s say, “Watch it, or you could be next!”

    He accidentally said, “vet,” didn’t he?

    The dog later was elected president of the newly formed NRAC, the National Rifle Association for Canines.
