..wherein Sling keeps a low profile.

Early last week,Mom O' LK got a phone call from our friends at the dog pound.
It seems that those two scamps,Morgan and Alex,had gone over the wall,and were found happily chasing cars on Interstate 70!
A highway patrol officer had brought them in.
Well,Mom-O hurried on down,and picked them up.
No bail required,on condition that she would make arrangements to get them neutered.

Two days later,LK and Mom-O were at work,so this time I picked up the phone.

'Hi..This is Miss A again..We just got a call that two dogs are loose on 70..Are your dogs home?'

Well,it's pouring down buckets of rain,and I'm in my PJ's,so I poke my head carefully out the back door..

'I don't see 'em ma'am,and I don't have any way to go get 'em'

'That's okay..I'll get a hold of Mom-O at work'..

So,..Miss A calls Mom-O,..Mom-O calls Brother B,..and she and Bro head out in the pouring rain to track down the two furbags.

Thirty minutes later,I get a phone call from Mom-O.

'Hey Sling..Are you SURE Morgan and Alex aren't home?'

'I'll check again,but I'm positive that,...oops'.

Sure enough,they had been taking shelter from the rain,and were obediently lodged in the back yard.
..Color me the fool.

I know that several people were totally inconvenienced,and that it couldn't have been any fun wandering the hi-way braving the monsoon,but I think the important thing to remember is,..I stayed warm and dry the entire time!
Morgan,Alex,and I are all in the dog house over this,but so far,only two out of three of us had to get our nuts cut..

Poor guys, all they want to do is lick their wounds in peace. The indignity.

This is the first good laugh I have had today...and out doubt you will cop curry over this for a fair time and deservedly so...poor sad for them, but better than being hit by a mack truck

Willym- It's a fashion statement I'd just as soon not have to make.

Jan- Hence,the low profile.

Sage- ..can still ferret out a bitch in heat a mile away!

Thinker- You just know that if they could sing,it would be the Blues.

Miss HP- I figure if I put 'em on the roof,I can get the Superbowl in high def.

Middle Child- 'Cop curry'..that's one of those down under sayings that I've never heard before,but quite naturally understand exactly what it means!
..I love that stuff.

So you hadn't had your coffee yet, totally honest mistake!

My my, we are glad to see the critters home and safe to say the least....where is your collar, Sling? And no more potty mouth from you young man. I will not even look at your previous post, and yes you are in the dog house! tsk tsk grammpa Sling.

Now, it is Friday and the weekend is upon us. Let us get into something productive and maybe write us a new song? BBQ something tasty? Clean up the house? yes, yes....then tell us what you did. Here's to a fine weekend my good man!

At 9:00 AM , Blogger Sling said...

Doralong- I kid you not,that's exactly what it was!
I didn't even have the presence of mind to call out their names.

CS- You know,I briefly considered deleting that post the next morning,but that would be censorship,and I'll have none o' that..
Hopefully,the weekend will produce some bloggable anecdotes.
Have a great one doll!

You are really one helluva guy to be blogging - truly so few and far between are funny blogs like yorn...

Poor pups - I don't care what they say, those jewels are MISSED! Did you ever hear of neuticles? Funniest thing I ever heard of as "substitutes for your pets"... Your boys will be just fine.

Yellerdawg- They're good fellas,but they are strong as hell,and break their chains when properly motivated..know what I'm sayin.
Mom-O got a group rate on their surgery.
$60.00 took care of both of them.

Lost- They are supposed to wear those collars for a week,but we give 'em a few minutes a day without them to cheer them up.

tsduff- Now I have to Google 'neuticles'!..(Google neuticles..there's a phrase I never thought I'd say)..
Thanks for dropping by!
