Animal Stories Part 2

This bold chipmunk was our lake cottage guest. We barged in on him making the cutest little peanut butter sandwiches!

H. is the most beautiful black lab i've ever seen and her owners have decided to breed her for pups one time. They selected one of the country's most eligible bachelors and arranged a date. In case there are young readers here, i won't be explicit, but things didn't go very smoothly, and although H. eventually was begging for his attention, her date wasn't going to comply.

Well this was the time to put in a long distance call to The Dog Whisperer if ever there was one. The phone was held to the ear of the reticent male. Dog and Dog Whisperer had a "talk." And then finally the Whisperer explained the problem to the humans of H. and her date and cleared everything up: the noble male dog loved H. and felt very protective of H. and didn't want to hurt her. Awww.

So the humans let things be for a while and then arranged another date. This time the humans involved came prepared, with "harvested sample" and KY jelly. I imagine most guys prepare for a date by checking their hair in the mirror and splashing on a bit of smelly stuff. I don't even want to think about this guy's pre-date preparations or what sort of machinery might have been involved. Nor how the date itself must have been about as romantic as a visit to the OB/GYN... But gosh, those pups are going to be devastatingly adorable if they ever get made!

  1. Hey Lisa,

    So glad to see you are blogging again! I've enjoyed catching up these last few days and am happily checking your bookmarked site each day now. Just out of curiosity...did the Dog Whisperer live in Santa Fe?

    Love, Betty W.
