Best Story of the Week…October 17

My doorman and his wife adopted a new puppy.

Sunny, is her name, and she’s part Beagle, part Lab with a little Pitt tossed in.

Her mother, clearly, was a busy girl.

When I asked how Sunny was doing, Mike said, “Well, okay, but she’s in the doghouse.”

“What did she do?”

“She ate my wife’s slipper.”

“Uh-oh. I guess your wife wasn’t too happy.”

“No, they were brand new.”

“What did she do? Did she yell at her?”

“No, she just gave her the other one.”  Unknown.jpeg

    Now that is the sensible thing to do. The chewed slipper was a distant memory. Sunny wouldn’t have understood why the yelling was happening. On the other hand, now all shoes are fair game.

    I’m sure Sunny appreciated a second helping of slipper, but now all loose shoes are fair game. It’s so hard to discipline a little baby while it’s wagging its tail.
    P.S. Weird things are happening when I leave a comment, so forgive me if I’ve left two instead of one today and yesterday.

    This is what the four legged peeps do to us. They rule our worlds with little more than a wag of their tails and a cuddle. Seinfeld once said that if alien life was observing the goings on down here, they would think our pets ruled the earth after watching us walk the dog.

    But I love his wife’s symmetry in the matter. This dog scored big time.


  5. As a pet owner, I get the logic of just tossing the other slipper. Super story, Susannah.

    Of course, by giving her the other slipper she is giving her permission to eat ALL their shoes…


  7. Having adopted a younger Beagle in late April, he was expected to be chewing pretty much everything for some time. At the time he was around 8 months old and was rescued from the streets of Cyprus. I have a “large” number of toys which I have grown out of chewing so they were hand me downs to Lenny, my younger brother (brofur). He enjoys chewing them and hasn’t attacked shoes yet. Its natural tendencies I think, maybe as well as some boredom. We need exercise of the brain and body, so fairly regular brain games are always welcome.

  8. Some people are just…dog lovers. If my cat ate my slipper, I would…wonder why she won’t eat her cat food!
