    No shop time for Frank

    This is Frank.

    Frank likes to hang out in the shop with me and knows that when I turn on the dust collector something loud is going to happen and it's time for him to leave. He's especially fond of the anti fatigue mat in front of the tablesaw.

    Three weeks ago, there was a mouse in the shop so I put out a trap with a bit of peanut butter. Frank went to investigate and before i could yell "leave it" he took a big lick of the peanut butter and got his tongue snapped in the trap.

    I got the mouse a few days later, but Frank won't come into the shop.
    An ethical man knows the right thing to do.
    A moral man does it.

    Poor dog... I am sorry to admit this, but I couldn't help but giggle a little bit. I bet it wasn't funny to watch though...

      I'm trying to imagine Frank letting out a yelp with a trap hanging from his tongue. I don't blame him for staying out. Give him my sympathies.

        I'll bet Frank was thinking some four-letter dog words.

          In dog words, that would be 28 letters. Frank's no dummy for staying out of the shop.
