Devil Dog Mako and Dad
I tried to warn Dad that Mako had a criminal brain. He didn't heed the warning and Mako systematically, over time, unzipped his pants, unbuttoned his shirt and stole the pizza right off the plate! I kept telling him that Mako would strip him naked one day. It never happened but Mako had even tried to unbuckle his belt. Dad just didn't grasp the concept that adolescent Airedales couldn't be trusted. You don't let them near your belt buckle, or, worse yet, the zipper to your pants (Yikes!) - nothing good will ever come of it. He thought that it was funny. That's until Mako ripped a chunk out of Dad's Motor Trend magazine (he was trying to steal it) while Dad was reading it! What was different that time was that Mako tore a hole in the very article that he was trying to read. Then, and only then, did he realize that Mako's thievery was serious!
Like many an adolescent Airedale before him, Mako earned those devil horns!
