The Wednesday Howl (Cross-eyed Rottweiler)

The Wednesday Howl

Cross-eyed Rottweiler

(This one is really bad, get ready to roll your eyes)

A man takes his Rottweiler to the vet. “My dog’s cross eyed. Is there anything you can do for him?”

“Well,” says the vet, “let’s have a look at him” So he picks the dog up and examines his eyes, then checks his teeth.

Finally, he says “I’m going to have to put him down.”

“What? Because he’s cross-eyed?”

“No, because he’s really heavy”

Merry Christmas

This really helped get me in the Christmas spirit! I loved reading all the nice, upliftin things everyone wrote. There must be….5,000 cards on that door!

On the other paw, these are the cards mom and dad got:

HEHEHE! My DWB buds rock!

Rusty’s mom here, we got LOTS of cards and ecards from friends and family. These are the ones we got snail mail. Rusty just wanted to gloat over all the mail HE got! 🙂

Tagged

I was tagged by Gizmo to say something nice about the last 10 people/dogs to leave a comment on my blog. So here goes.

Starting with the  last person to leave a comment (who is Khyra at this time) and working my way back we have…

1. Khyra is a beautiful Siberian Husky living where there is a lot of snow! She spells words funny sometimes. Khyra is a nice new friend who is always thinking of others. She wishes her friends Happy Birthday and she has written posts to help her friend Stormy find her way home.

2. Tony is a crazy man who lives in Tasmania (just go look at his header.) His little dog Dixie is such a cutie, even after he gave her a haircut himself. He always has fun posts and sponsored the Flat Tony World Tour which was a lot of fun.

3. Amber-Mae the Solid Gold Dancer really is a dancer. She is so talented, smart, and learns tricks so easily. You should go look at some of the videos on her blog. She and her sisters and mom are always going cool places and having adventures! Her mom is a singer and mom is getting a dvd from her. The proceeds go to help animals! Isn’t her mom nice!

4. Lorenza is always dressed up so cute and has the friendliest face! She likes to go on walkies and check the local pee-mail to see what’s going on. She is the pup that gave me a letter of recommendation for DWB! Thanks Lorenza.

5. Addie had grown up right before my eyes. She is so pretty and so nice and so smart! You should go see the pictures of her with the real Santa Paws! She sends cool treats out too.

6.Abby’s address says crabby abby but I’ve never seen anything crabby about that cute little pup! You should see her Christmas card picture which is really sweet and she posted her rejects which are kind of funny, but don’t tell her I said that.

7. Gizmowho has “Pet Attitude” lives very far away and can’t get foodables in the mail from me. Gizmo has been with his mom for about 6 months and is such a happy and lucky pup to have found her.  He is a great new friend and he’s looking good in his new bling!

8. Monaand her Mommy don’t live too terribly far from me here in Texas. I sure would like to meet her in person some time. Mona does important work, she helps her mommy rescue pups who have been mistreated or lost and need furever homes.

9. Deefor lives in that cold place called Denver. He has a little brother named Arrow who is a mess. Deefor has advice posts every so often that are really good! He looks cute in his green turtle neck (no sweater, just a turtleneck.)

10. My Dog- Life with Penny is a great place to go for interesting news about dogs, dog health etc. Mom always likes to read what Penny’s mom has to say, it makes her think. I’m going to get a cool new toy because of something she wrote! She lives way far away from me too, in Australia. Penny gets to walk in some really pretty places and do cool things.

I won’t tag anyone but if you want to do this it is fun!

The Wednesday Howl (Life Lessons From Your Dog)

The Wednesday Howl

The Wednesday Howl a Little Early

Life lessons learned from a dog

1. If you stare at someone long enough, eventually you’ll get what you want.

2. Don’t go out without ID.

3. Be direct with people; let them know exactly how you feel by peeing on their shoes.

4. Be aware of when to hold your tongue, and when to use it.

5. Leave room in your schedule for a good nap.

6. Always give people a friendly greeting. A cold nose in the crotch is most effective.

7. When you do something wrong, always take responsibility (as soon as you’re dragged shamefully out from under the bed).

8. If it’s not wet and sloppy, it’s not a real kiss.

The Wednesday Howl (Dog Tricks)

The Wednesday Howl

Heel

This fundamentalist Christian couple felt it important to own an equally fundamentally Christian pet. At a kennel specializing in this particular breed, they found a dog they liked quite a lot. When they asked the dog to fetch the Bible, he did it in a flash. When they instructed him to look up Psalm 23, he complied equally fast, using his paws with dexterity. They were impressed, purchased the dog, and went home.
That night they had friends over. They were so proud of their new fundamentalist dog and his skills they called the dog to show off a little.
The friends were impressed, and asked whether the dog was able to do any of the usual dog tricks. This stopped the couple as they hadn’t thought about “normal” tricks. Well, they said, “Let’s try this out.”
Once more they called the dog, and they clearly pronounced the command, “Sit” and the dog sat. Then they said “Heel” and quick as a wink, the dog jumped up, put his paws on the man’s forehead, closed his eyes, and bowed his head.

 

 

 

 

The Forgotten Dog’s Christmas – a poem

This should be posted at all pet stores
and puppy palaces
 

FORGOTTEN DOG’S CHRISTMAS
Author unknown
 
Twas the night before Christmas
when all thru the house
 
Not a creature was stirring
not even a mouse.
 
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care  
In hopes that St. Nick soon would be there.
 
The children all nestled snug in their beds  
With no thought of the dog filling their head.
 
And mom in her kerchief and I in my cap  
Knew the dog was cold, but didn’t care about that.
 
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter  
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
 
Away to the window I flew like a flash
Figuring the dog was free of his chain and into the trash.
 
The moon on the breast of the new fallen snow  
gave the luster of mid-day to objects below.
 
When what to my wondering eyes should appear  
But Santa Clause with his eyes full of tears.
 
He unchained the dog once so lively and quick  
Last year’s Christmas present now painfully sick.
 
More rapid than eagles he called the dog’s name  
and the dog ran to him despite all his pain.
 
Now Dasher, now Dancer, now Prancer and Vixen  
On Comet on Cupid on Donner and Blitzen.
 
To the top of the porch to the top of the wall  
Let’s find this dog a home where he will be loved by all.
 
I knew in an instant there would be no gifts this year  
For Santa had made one thing quite clear.
 
The gift of a dog is not just for the season  
We had gotten the dog for all the wrong reasons.
 
In our haste to think of the kids a gift
There was one important thing we missed
 
A dog should be family, and cared for the same  
You don’t give a gift, then put it on a chain.
 
And I heard him explain as he rode out of site,
“You weren’t given a gift, you were given a life.”
