The Dog Food Diet




Yesterday I was buying 2 large bags of dog food at Walmart, for Winston, Chief, Gus, and Maximus.  I was about to check out when a woman behind me asked if I had a dog. What did she think, that I had an elephant?

Since I had little else to do, on impulse, I told her that no, I didn’t have a dog, and that I was starting the Dog Food Diet again, although I probably shouldn’t because I ended up in the hospital last time. On the bright side though, I’d lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an intensive care ward with tubes coming out of every hole in my body and IVs in both arms.

I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet and that the way that it works is to load your pockets with dog food nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry and that the food is nutritionally complete so I was going to try it again.

(I have to mention here that practically everyone in the line was enthralled with my story by now.)

Horrified, she asked if I ended up in intensive care because the dog food had poisoned me. I told her no; I had stopped in the middle of the parking lot to lick my butt, and a car hit me.

I thought the guy behind her was going to have a heart attack, he was laughing so hard!

WAL-MART won’t let me shop there anymore.

Enjoy your day!

Until next time,

Good day, and good dog!

I have to give credit where credit is due. Thanks to friend-of-the-blogger Connie for sending this to me.

Tuesday’s Top Ten: Dogs From Hell

Sometimes I think I have the dogs from hell. And what’s weird is that even when one dog passes on and we get another, the traits continue. I know, that probably means I am a terrible dog trainer – I’m probably risking my credibility here. But, just for fun, here is a list of the top ten things my dogs have gotten into over the years.

We’d do anything for our dogs… well, maybe not murder

In a bizarre story, a man in Australia has been charged with killing his wife–because she wouldn’t let him cuddle the dog!

Anthony Sherna lived in a remote area of Australia with his wife Suzanne and their Jack Russell Terrier Hubble.  They had few friends, no nearby neighbors, and they pretty much relied on each other for their social life.  He made it a habit to cuddle and rock his dog to sleep at night while he listened to the radio.  Until one day last February when his wife started shouting at him for paying too much attention to the dog.

Apparently her shouting upset the dog so much he was shaking badly and couldn’t be comforted for some time (at the best of times, it took 15 minutes to get the JRT to bed).  Anthony was so angry that he snapped, grabbed a dressing gown cord and wrapped it around his wife’s neck.  As if this story wasn’t strange enough already, Anthony then took Hubble to a pet spa so that he wouldn’t have to confront his wife’s remains!

So the wife is dead, the husband is in custody–but the dog at least is alive and well.
