I goofed
I must apologize to all my loyal fans, but I was supposed to post this last week because the Stray was on a long planned hiatus to work on her howling voice. My email was clogged with junk mail and I just deleted them all, including the memo from my parents regarding Cosette's vacation and her email reminder that I had to post. Anyhow, here is the story that I decided to tell.

Long ago, in a far far neighborhood of Seattle, located in the middle of a lake, on an Island, was an adorable pug with an ugly sister named Cosette. He had an awesome toy that he loved to play with and an irresponsible father who leaves the bathroom door open while doing quick "business." This adorable dog was so anxious to play with his guy that he dropped it at Daddy's feet and, when Daddy did not respond, dropped it closer; in what Mommy and Daddy(mainly Daddy) refer to as a "mid-stream" drop. Daddy yelled and Mommy, after being informed of what had happened screamed, grabbed an old pair of tongs and threw both the tongs and the guy away.

This made the adorable pug very sad and he gave this look for long periods of time. Finally, Mommy said "FINE!!! You had BETTER be GLAD that this is your favorite toy in the world!!!" The guy was fished out of the trash, put in the bathtub, run under scalding hot water for ten minutes, sprayed with bleach, run under scalding hot water another ten minutes, put in the dishwasher...twice, and finally returned to its rightful owner.

The aforementioned pug was happy, and he and his guy lived happily ever after.

What a powerful story, they should teach that to little kids in school. It really hammers the lesson home that everyone needs to learn about not throwing your guy in the toilet while people are doing their business, and who hasn't that happened to? Glad you got it back Winston!

Oh no! hahaha I can't stop laughing! I am thankful the hubby closes the door or Gus would do the same. As it is.. the cat drops things in the toilet constantly.. usually my hair elastics!

Sandra y Coco said...

This story is was funny! Coco waits by the trash can to try to "fish" some toilet paper... ewwwww!

Rachel said...

that is a great story - full of ups and downs, tension, emotion, exhilaration. kudos.

Nevis said...

That story was indeed rife with varied emotions...I was on the edge of my seat. Poor Winston. This is, obviously, yet another problem caused by Cossette. I don't know how he puts up with her.

Clover said...

Haha oh Winston. So sorry to hear about your situation. I am glad you got (a very clean) guy back. Your Mom must really love you!
Love Clover xo
P.S. Although I don't think Cosette is ugly, my favourite part of the story was when you said that. haha!

Aww, before my Bailey crossed the Rainbow Bridge, we had to go through the same thing with his disgusting stuffed bear that he just loved. It was so chewed on and drug around that it began to stink, and it looked like a stuffed bio hazard. We tried to throw it out, more than once, but every single time we'd fish it back out of the trash, because he just looked so sad.

Wow. Moj and I usually pee on mom and dad's stuff, not the other way around. Mom thinks that's pretty hilarious. Your house is messed up! At least you got your guy back.
