Why one does not bring their new puppy along to pick up a new bass

    This is Fen, short for Fender. He's a five month old terrier beagle god knows what else mix we recently got from our local American Humane Society shelter. A picture of canine nobility and angelic innocence if there ever was one.

    This is Fen yesterday. Picked up a new bass (not a Fodera) at our Fedex office, put the box in the back seat with the Fen who very much wanted to "Go for ride!"

    Got back very shortly after…and this was the result:

    No damage to the contents. (Lucky for him!) But I'm a little miffed about the box since that's probably as close to having a real Fodera as I'm ever likely to get.

    Dogs. Gotta love 'em.

    Just helping you unpack. Pretty smart for a young pup.

    What kind of bass was actually in there? The dog might just hate false advertising... or crappy basses.

    It's an early '70s Gibson SB-300 I posted about over in the Basses section.

    Hmm…him being named "Fender" might have something to do with it now that you mention it. :laugh:
