http://www.dogshaming.com/2014/03/bad-lassie/ I used to have a LOVE/HATE relationship with Lassie. When I was a wee lass my parents thought Lassie was my favorite show. Instead my five year old self was an anxious tangle of emotional angst...Lassie and all his friends were in constant peril. But this made me laugh. I'm over the early childhood Lassie trauma.
