Default Good for a few laughs...'-}}

Came across the following the other day--on one of my horse lists--and it is too funny not to share:

Dogs in Elks - make sure to read the section at the bottom on authentication as it provides a bit of useful background...'-}}


The above almost tops what I think is about the funniest true story I've ever read online:

Squirrels and Beet Pulp

Dogs in Elks was funny but the beet pulp one remains my all-time favorite.

Isn't that a hoot?! The images it brings to mind...particularly their attempt to bring the carcass through the window into the bedroom and that almond milk takes the blood out of curtains...'-}}

I thought of both Marlene and KT when I read it...'-}

I don't know which made me laugh harder; both are just hysterical. I have a dog (small) that cannot be removed from food unless you wish to have very sharp teeth latched to your finger. However, William the squirrel, pretty much tops that.

I thought they were very funny too...I think the squirrel story is so funny because she writes well and the dog story is funny because it's just so bizarre...I don't know anything about the type of dogs she has although I'd at least heard of Basenjis but I never knew about the other--New Guinea Singing Dog.

Now that's one I've never heard of. I didn't see it either while reading the story, although I may have missed it because I was laughing so hard.
