When Dan’s mother, Lucile, moved to Florida after she was widowed, she had a little house built next door to us. At one time we adopted a large male doberman pinscher, Blitz, that was pretty mean. It was all we could do to control him.

When Dan and I were at home we usually let him off his chain to run around. Now Grandma Corporon had a very good friend, Lucy, who was the same age and they went everywhere together. Lucy had come to visit and she and Grandma were standing out in the yard by the carport. Blitz went up to Grandma’s and smelled her legs and then hiked his leg and peed all over her.

She made her famous remark, “The dirty beast.” Lucy almost had a stroke laughing!
