This one is for JR and Sammi since you both have animals; working in an animal ER I hear lots of stories about pets from owners, whether its a bit embarrassing (how the dog ate underwear-mine has done that one) or got into something they shouldn't have, or as owners reflect on one of their favorite moments in their pets life. What is one of the funniest things your cat or dog has done? And over all the years what is the one thing that has melted your heart and stuck with you the most?
Hmmm - with our first dog, it was always funny in the winter. It'd snow, and we'd make snowballs. She loved to fetch, but toss the snowball and it'd land in the snow, and she totally could never figure out where the ball went
Funny now, but not at the time: two years ago, it was brutally cold, so we decided to leave the dogs inside, with no supervision. My yellow lab is the older one (he's almost 6 now), and he's pretty much a "you're not looking, I'll hop up on the couch now" dog. That is something funny about him - he really sleeps hard on that couch, and sometimes we'll hear him fall off
Anyhow, the younger one is kind of fidgity (he's almost 5), but I thought they'd be ok. The first day - no problems. The second day - no problems. The third...well, I came home, and the yellow lab was lying on the couch, looking at me like, "I didn't do it." The black lab was cringing. He ate my remote (into about 400 pieces), the Lego Harry Potter toys, the cord to the curio cabinet, the curtain ties, a pillow, and on top of that he managed to make confetti out of a 64 page music book. I think he got bored
The one thing that's stuck with me the most was with our last dog. When she was old, she was completely blind and deaf, and I think she'd lost her sense of smell. We used to leave her in all the time, and I think she could "feel" when the door slammed. I was actually home and sitting on the couch, and she had no idea I was there - she just walked up and hopped onto the couch - into my lap! (This was an 80 pound catahoula/husky). The look on her face was completely priceless
