Well, we finally extracted the package from the bowels of UPS. Did you know UPS drivers wear shorts in winter too? No wonder they're crabby. Grow some fur. I scribbled a signature and then dived in, ripping away the cardboard. What emerged from the packing peanuts was, well, not what we were expecting. The model A101-B is, well, a different breed from the model B101-A, which is what the border collie assures me he ordered.
Now I'm not saying this model isn't going to work out, but it does lack the sleek lines of the Model B101-A. Not to mention its range of squirrel pursuit. The Model B101-A can chase down a squirrel from 30 feet. The Model A101-B can, well, make choo choo noises.
I'm considering a backup plan while we show Model A101-B around the yard. There's a pitbull a few blocks over who loves Monty Python's Holy Grail. He has the garb. He might be the way to go. Except he demands a lot of Spam. On soda crackers.
Might be worth paying up, though. I sense the natives are restless...
