Just Some Stuff

Drew told Lean that Cupcake died, he just blurted it out. She cried a little and asked a million questions. The most popular question (asked at least 20-30 times) was "How do you know he was dead, he never moves, he's always in a coma?" I even started doubting myself, how did I know for sure? Oh right his body part flew off.

I have utterly and abominably failed my job as canine correctional officer. A few weeks ago Penny began jumping over the fence again, she didn't care if she got shocked. I accidentally checked to see if the collar worked, it definitely did. She became a canine masochist flinging herself over the fence all the while being shocked.
At first she would come home for visits and to be fed. Polka is, of course, devastated. We bought Penny to be a companion for him after all.
This last week she stopped coming home even to be fed. She visited for one hour and that was it.
Yesterday we drove around the neighborhood and saw her in some one's yard . We called her, she stood up and ran into their garage to escape us. WTF? Drew called them and the people said she lives there all the time, but they don't feed her. She plays with their dogs during the day. They take their dogs in at night but she still sleeps in their yard. They tried to put her in their fence, of course that didn't work. We offered to let them keep her, they don't want her but she won't leave their yard and jumps in their backyard to play with their dogs.
Anyway they are trying to find someone on a farm that needs a good dog. Maybe it will work out.

We went to Health Camp (little irony there for ya) for burgers and I finally got to say, "I can has cheez burger?" Everyone just stared at me, whatever people don't you ever go on line?

Drew told me he has seen the goat hair but never noticed the stache. Love is blind to all but errant chin growth.

Did you bury Cupcake ?

Jean Knee said...

He is still in the freezer because of heavy rain

Melissa said...

Sounds like Lean took the news fairly well...
I'm sorry that you have a run-away. Maybe you should call a support group and see if you can stage an intervention...

:o(

My Chili Palmer came back from the dead like 10 times. I kept telling Andy 'okay, now he's really dead. you should take him out now' only to swim away each time. We went 5 days without seeing him one time! Now he's healthy again and I'm wondering if he had been depressed...

Bee said...

Maybe Penny thinks you're gonna make her sleep with the fishes?

Lisa said...

Sounds like Dotty just isn't as fun as the other dogs. Penny wants new friends.

Brian o Vretanos said...

Don't be too hard on yourself. Maybe Penny just wants a change of diet - try her feeding her some fish ;-)

Cheez thing:

I'm staring too...

I'm in the market for a new dog. What kind of dog is it...I forgot it's name....How many days will it take you to ship the dog from your house to mine?
And I love that your fish was so comatose that you had to question yourself if he was indeed dead or not even after his bodyparts started falling off.
Oh to be a fly on your wall Jean Knee!

My son could use a new home.

Dan said...

Leave him in the freezer, maybe one day in the future man kind will invebt somthing to bring him back.

I haven't lost any body parts. Hooray, I'm still alive!!!

wall of flies (politer) said...

Sorry I didn't comment before :(
Please don't ban me.

Maybe you can find a nice stream, build him a boat (paper) and put his frozen, partly flewed off body in it.

That'd be a great send off IMO.
No?

wall of flies (politer-er) said...

I hate it when a great "I can has cheez burger?" is wasted.

C'mon people!!! It's 2008!

Jean Knee said...

Lean has shown no interest in burying Cupcake so now I'm thinking flushing would have been best

Brian o Vretanos said...

Well, flushing is kind of like a burial at sea...

Brian o Vretanos said...

You could hold a ceremony in the bathroom.

Bee said...

Wall of flies is hilarious because she/he/it thinks they are incognito but we know who ito is! ;op

HI WALL OF FLIES!!

Jean Knee said...

I have no , absolutely no idea who the fly wall is.

wall of flies (super anonymous) said...

No you ain't don't knowing who's me.

I'm but a lonely wall of flies commenting on Jean Knee's post about poor frozen dead Cupcake and her goat hair.

Jean Knee said...

dear wall of flies,

should I name the goat hair?

wall of flies said...

You should...but then again, you are just going to whack it off :(

Maybe you should not. Once you give it a name you have become to attached.

Jean Knee said...

that's a good point

sorry Larry, you don't get a name

uh
