Snicker Saturday -GRRR

Happy Saturday, everyone.

Here's your chuckle for the day...this time at my expense.  I don't mind sharing a BOL even with me as the target.   Here's how it happened:

So last night I wake up from a productive nap and all of a sudden I sense a strange presence in my living room.  High alert and on duty!   First, I stalked it...    Then I gave it my best K9 Grrrrrrrrrrr...    Then I hit it with my most business-like BARK.      Well, you won't believe this, but it wasn't even the least bit nervous and it definitely didn't run.  WHAT???    Okay, so I go through the whole routine again.   Stalk...Grrrr...BARK.   Nothing.     So then, my Mom walked right up to this lumpy human/creature thingy on our couch and.....wait for it....she touched it!    GASP   I went into full berzerk mode then.  All out attack with everything I had in me.    This is the scene:

                                                   ROWR ROWR ROWR GRRRRRR
                                                                   Very Brave!

So, then the punchline...  ahem.
Mom picked up the top thingy, and yes, these are my Dad's clothes.  Oh, Mom and Dad were practically rolling on the floor.  Here I was ready to throw down my life to attack this horrid thing...but alas, it was a hat and coveralls.   BOL BOL   HARHARAHRHARHARHARHAR.  

Sorta made me look like one of these:

Grr and Woof,

Yeah Well now we all have had this kinda thingy happen. While we are busy nappin' the crazy Peeps.. go and put some Wild and Scary stuff where it Does NOT belong.. and then we get the furs scared off us.
Glad that it was nothing Worse than Your Dad's Hunting Stuffs. WHEW!!!

Sarge - It takes a mighty big dog to be able to laugh at himself! That's pretty funny, but hey, at least they know your "on the job."

That is pretty funny, Sarge, but at least you had good intentions - protecting the family from that evil critter:)

Happy Weekend.

OoH Sarge,

Woofs and Licks,

It was a monthly drill of your preparedness!

You are funny, Sarge! My feline sister does this all the time (not that I am comparing you to a cat!)

Your pal, Pip

Sarge! You were right to be cautious. You never know what might happen. One time momma tried to make me get in the mastiff mobile when the back was full of those scary cloth shopping bags! I would NOT get in.

LMTO! Oh Sarge, Morgan feels your pain! She's been under attack by the air freshener this week! Tee hee!


Lola and also Franklin, too said...

OK, but the point is, you were ready and willing, weren't you? You were going to protect your family from whatever was out there - be it an intruder or laundry. Hold your tail up high, Sarge. You did well.

lotsa licks, Lola

sprinkles said...

You're a big man to admit something like that in such a public setting, Sarge!

I can't believe your family laughed at you for trying to protect them from that "thing."

My Shiver scares easily so I could totally see him doing something like this.

Wyatt said...

Don't feel too bad, Sarge. I spend a lot of time protecting my family from bath towels and light fixtures!


Alien said...

Actually, I was hiding under the hat but you scared me.

I wish I was there to see it!
Kisses and hugs

You are so brave, Sarge! Better to be safe and go on alert than ignore it. There could have been a squirrel hiding under there!! Plus I bet it smelled all kinds of strange. My papa's hunting clothes have some interesting smells.


PeeS: I think you're way cuter than those donkeys... and I think they're pretty cute to begin with!
