Herman knew instantly that his billowy poet’s shirt, bacon cologne, and cow bone necklace was the wrong outfit choice as soon as his neighbor’s German Shepherd, Spanky, screamed from across the street, “Eff you, asshole!,” her hackles standing straight up and her eyes boring into him with judgment.

The dog was so upset with me that his hackles raised and his chest billowed as he said, “I can’t believe you thought you could take that much of my earnings for my part on Marley and Me with Jennifer Aniston! As my agent you are strictly entitled to ten percent and not a penny more.”

Phil had gained so much weight on his month-long Alaskan cruise that upon his return, his hamster’s hackles stood on end at the sight of his fat rolls billowing over his Lee jeans.
