Fastest Paws In the West

Why was I checking insurance cards late yesterday evening?  Well, let me tell ya...

It all started while the husband was bringing in the groceries.  I was waiting at the door, watching him head back out to the truck for the next load.  He bent over to pet Diesel.  Then all of a sudden the husband reached up to his face and got a shocked look.  It reminded me of Ralphie on the Christmas Story.  Here use this for reference....



Now, you see it...the oh, no, where are my glasses look.

Well, I'll tell ya where they were, in Diesel's mouth!  The legs were stickin' out of each side of his mouth, lenses in the mouth.  I ran out the door trying to stop him.  The husband busted out laughing.  He couldn't believe what had just happened.  He was shocked.  The only reason he knew his glasses where gone was Diesel barely nicked his cheek.  He reached up to feel his cheek and realized his glasses were GONE!

Then I started laughing.  Imagine a couple laughing hysterically trying to grab an oversized puppy.  I got a hold of him but he wouldn't give up the glasses.  The husband had to go in the house and get a milkbone to trade.

Finally got the slobber soaked glasses out of the beast's mouth.  That's when I realized he had bit thru one of the lenses!  Luckily the husband found an old pair in his desk to get him thru last night and this morning.  I found some optometrists that take his insurance and this morning he was at their office bright and early.  He ended up gettin' contacts!  Maybe Diesel won't try gettin' those.


**Giveaway winner**
I used the Random Generator at Random.org.  Put in the number of entrants and it gave me number 35.  So carrielt, you won!!!  Drop me an email with your contact info and your spring in a box will head your way.

Savanah is our pick pocket. You can't leave anything in your winter jacket pockets on the backs of chairs. Secretly I wish someone really rich would come over :P

Don't be so sure about the contacts. I've lost 2 pair to a dog standing at my feet when I accidentally dropped one while trying to put it in. Dog saw the glint of the lens, lunged with extended tongue and the thing was gone.

I wish I could have a dollar for every pair of glasses one of my dogs have chewed up......! Wish I could wear contacts!

I'm so glad the insurance company accepted the ol "dog ate my glasses" excuse. ;) LOL

My mothers adorable little Pomeranian chewed up 2 pair of glasses, a rocking chair leg and most of the lamp cords. And, God forbid, don't leave a roll of toilet paper on the floor.

Ha ha... at least they weren't broken. Our dog gives me a kiss and smacks my glasses with her head.... You'd think I'd learn and take glasses off prior to head butt like kiss method she uses.

True story... My old neighbor Mr Kelly used to have a glass eye. It disappeared, and they looked everywhere for it, but then they gave up. A week later, they saw something glinting in the dog poop... and there it was! Mr Kelly refused to ever use that glass eye ever again, saying he couldn't see worth sh** with it!

Glasses? I've lost a few - especially to puppies!

LMAO! My word veri is CRAPOO!
