Fetch beers? No. The fridge will deliver the beer.

    Shame they were wasting it on Miller Lite.

    Getting up for a new beer is the perfect time to release the old beer. Or check the coals. Or check the meat. Or check to see if the girlfriend is still watching Sex in the City in the bedroom or if she's escaped for a trip to the beach. Or just to stretch your legs.

    Although, one day I would like to train a smart dog to open the fridge, grab a beer and bring it back. Forget slippers and the paper: "Max, fetch me a beer."

    One of my best friends in college had a dog that could do that. He spent a fortune training the lab for hunting and apparently the beer thing was among the many skills it mastered.

    If I had my wish, you could have yours. Well, only if you were over here.
     
  12. Me too. There's no way I ever remember that dog's name.

    Well done.
