^Probably right, or it's pretty much a small accomplishment similar to getting an FML posted on this site. But hey, thumbs on this site are nothing but a number. First comments on the other hand, clichéd, overused, or pretty simple and boring comment are usually frowned upon here.
I would actually consider this a "WIN".. It would have been a failure if it would have been the way around.. Going to the groomers to pick him up and remembering you lost him... ;) My doggie past away a few days ago.. So I was thrilled to read you still have yours.
I suppose it's subconsciously a race to 'win' first. So much has been made of the first comment on various Internet sites and forums, that people have glorified having that first comment. I think it's a part of the subconscious primitive desire to conquer the best things, to own, possess, the highest of the high in order to be admired. In the days of cavemen, no one would settle for second best and strived to be the greatest. These instincts have stuck with humans, though of course have adapted to suit the society of today. Of course, there is nothing special about the first comment. It's just been built up into this huge thing, and now human instincts have turned it into something desirable.
And what did you learn? ;) It's good you didn't actually lose your dog though.
Well.. At least you care that much about your dog. That's always good :)
I'm surprised it wasn't just the OP who had forgotten about taking the dog to the groomers. You guys either love this dog unconditionally for searching for so long or don't give enough of a damn about him to know where he is.
