I was raised in Missouri and moved to Texas in 1990. My early years were spent roaming the woods, hunting fossils, swimming, swinging on grapevines and generally pretending to be a Dr. Peabody-like Huckleberry Finn. I was a hospital pharmacist in the Veterans Administration for 14 years, then lateralled into software development. I still work for the VA in IT. Somewhere early in life, a woman attached herself to me. I woke up one morning, and there she was! We have three grown, gloriously launched children. Somewhere, back in time we got married. A clear chronological strata of these events is not possible due to memory constraints.
My wife was babysitting some girls of a family. The youngest kept crying, and Vickie couldn't comfort her, and said, "Stacy, Stacy! What am I going to do with you?" The older girl said, "Whip her butt, and put her in bed! That's what mamma does." We laughed about it then, and variations of that phrase crept into our vocabulary. I'm tormenting Vickie, and she threatens me with dire consequences of various degree. I tell her, "Vickie, just whip my butt and put me to bed. You come too!" I won't go further as this is a private joke.
When picking a name for my razor business, I selected Whipped Dog based on our private joke. While the name "Whipped Dog" on the surface might be interpreted negatively, I selected a picture for my website with great care to portray contentment. Look at the dog at the top of this page...
Sure, the 'Ol Whipped Dog (me) has been mistreated by wife and kids. Sure, I am the butt of all their jokes. But, in a loving Rodney Dangerfield sort of way. "I get no respect. No respect at all!"
I hope you enjoy browsing thru WhippedDog.com.
