That Darn Dog

IN THE NEWS: According to World Magazine, a woman in Austin, TX found a stray cat under the hood of her Chevy Tahoe, so she took it home, where the stray became quickly attached to the woman's 3 year-old dachshund. In fact, SO attached that in a few days the kitten began to nurse on the dog mother. Their dog, Lillie, has now gone into full-blown mother mode and like a good "mom" is nursing the cat every morning and evening and after naps.

There was an extra little tidbit in the news this week that had me cracking up--so much so that writing about it couldn't have done the story justice. So I searched YouTube and...


YouTube rules!

If you want to see something unusual, it's almost always there. But first let me preface this video with a mention that the human was probably more injured than the dog. Both physically AND mentally. See for yourself:

Tour de France dog.

All that training down the drain, all because of one negligent dog owner. Oh dear. I feel evil for laughing. But at some point, you have to think winning this year just wasn't in the cards for that guy.

Have a great weekend!

Ok, my dear have a weird sense of humor.

You laughed???? I laughed but not at the poor you for thinking it was funny!

Besides, couldn't the stupid guy see the dog was walking across-it's not like the dog darted out, lol...
yes it was funny!
