Have you ever thought that your dog deserves his or her own sitcom? Dogs can sometimes be hysterical and adorable at the same time, and they usually aren’t even aware that they’re doing it. Joyce’s seven year old black lab, Zach, has quirks that merit him a reality show during primetime. Although mellow and loyal by nature, Zach’s antics make him a comedian unknowingly.
Like a man and his armchair on Sundays during football season, Zach has “his” chair, and will sit and stare at anyone who dares to sit in “his” spot- a gray recliner. When he’s not occupying this chair, Zach likes to spend his time in other’s laps. This wouldn’t be a problem, except that he weighs 75 pounds! Whether he’s on someone’s lap or the chair, Zach likes watching television with his family. Joyce isn’t sure if he completely understands the story lines, but he looks intrigued enough for her to feel bad about changing the channel.
While his comprehension of cable TV is debatable, Zach does understand basic English commands, and also instills some of his own. While he can communicate his basic needs to Joyce by walking over to his food when he is hungry, or to the door when he needs to go outside, this big black dog is very picky about what he eats. Zach refuses to eat from a bowl that has been used before, and likes his water chilled with several ice cubes. If it’s not up to his exacting standards, Zach will whine and walk away from the bowls, or sit and stare at his family, as his does with his chair. Although Zach probably takes his food very seriously, to an outsider, this arrangement he has with his family is hilarious.
Of course, no star is complete without his sidekick. While Zach likes to sleep late (on his Tempur-Pedic dog bed, no less), his little brother, Max, enjoys waking him up with his sparring skills. Luckily for Max, Zach is very patient with him, which makes him the star of his home.
