    Long ago, I learned to not laugh at "old dogs." Most of them learned everything I have and then some, decades earlier, and the intervening decades haven't been wasted. Point being, I've watched many an "old dog" quietly wax the tails of everyone else who had voiced a backhanded compliment impugning his skills or knowledge. It has happened far too often to be coincidence. Old Dogs know their chit, no doubt. There must've been a killer school for the Dogs, back when. It involved a farm, good tools, good training, and self-sufficiency. And they didn't teach no "whizzin' in the weeds with bigger dogs," either. The "curriculum" was much more practical. My grandfather was an Old Dog, in that classic sense. A tip o' the hat to Old Dogs.
