One of my closest friends from high school has adopted two greyhounds. I always love reading his Facebook posts, but this one in particular had me laughing out loud. I think most of us can relate to the war on crickets.

6:25 AM: Two dining room chairs overturned in pursuit of a cricket.

6:26 AM: Cricket apprehended and devoured.

6:28 AM: Vomiting of cricket pieces begins.

6:40 AM: Vomiting continues. Human butler runs out of paper towels.

6:41 AM: Human butler loudly curses toilet paper’s fragility.

6:45 AM: Order restored. Coffee brewed.

6:55 AM: Second cricket is discovered. Second greyhound involved in pursuit.

6:56 AM: Human butler puts hounds up for adoption; adds bourbon to coffee.

8:55 AM: Cricket sounds issue from dining room. Human butler has f***ing had it; puts house up for sale.

Gotta’ love ‘em!

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
