Dog Waxing

My lil snot nose dog took a snooze yesterday. His mother (me, in case you're wondering) must have missed the garbage pail when throwing away a piece of gum. Lil dog wakes up and comes running over wearing his "Where's Mom, where's Mom? look. Finds me and lays on his back for his gazillionth of the day tummy rubbing. Lo and behold I find chewing gum all over his lil chest! Geeze, I say, "Where the heck did you lie and get gum all over you?" (I know, I know). Anyway, Mom (me) tries to pull it off...not good!..I think the growling and whimpering noises were a clue to stop

Ok, Ok, ...I got the scissors out and start snipping (he lets me do anything). Can't get that last little piece off, dammit! I look into his bulging brown eyes and say: "This is going to hurt me more than it's going to hurt you"........RRRRRIIIIIIPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP!

His chest is now smoother than a baby's bottom and if he could talk he may have let out some of the same expletives heard from "The Forty Year Old Virgin" in the movie of the same name.

NOTE TO PETA: Don't be coming after me, I really didn't hurt him.

At least you didn't experience one of your twin 3 year old daughters telling you that she swallowed her gum after lunch one day only to find it in hair the next morning. No, really, I'm a great dad. Just ask my girls!!

Good question! It's pretty unprofessionl when I walk into a staff meeting with gum leftover from the bubble I blew all over my lower lip!!
