Funny Stories From Just Living Here...

I promised to tell a couple of jokes, but I think you might find these moments from my life(so far!) humorous...
Animal Stories.
We have always had a Calico cat, and an Airedale dog- well, at least for the last 30 yrs.! A calico cat is basically a mutt cat, in fact I rescued Willow(current C.C.) from a meat market, where she had been living in a dumpster.. But this story is about Daisy, our departed, 1st cat ... This cat could have been in the cat Olympics, she could jump or get into anywhere. Wife puttering, me watching T.V.... Wife goes into laundry room, shuts the dryer door, and tumbles a load of already dry towels... I ask her "Are you drying a pair of kids tennis shoes?" Nooo.. as her eyes get larger and runs for the dryer... We open the door, and out flies a really dizzy, pissed off cat- who had been sleeping on the fluffy towels quite peacefully until the dryer fired up.. She was fine, but to this day- we check what's in there first!
Clara- Our current Airedale, came from Airedale rescue. She is a great dog now, but lived in many homes before finding her "forever" home with us. When we first got her, we took her places in the car. Whenever she saw another dog, she would go wild, barking and trying to get out the car window.. One day, she did this and started yelping... I turned around(while driving, mind you!) to see this big dog head shut in the window... She had stepped on the electric window button, and closed her own head in the window.. My wife is screaming by now, I'm still trying to drive the car AND free Numb Nuts from the window with my window buttons... For years now, if you hit the power windows in the car, this dog will go directly to the middle of the backseat- as far from the window as she can get!
No animals were harmed or destroyed during the telling of these stories...

I'm glad you are an animal rescuer Buff!

Since we're telling funny/cute/charming animal stories, I might as well tell mine too.

The other day Hubbetron was picking up dog poop in our backyard, as is his manly duty, and when he came in he said,
"One of the dogs pooped nothing but paper towel rolls and corn cobs."

Isn't that cute?

Odat said...

LOL OMG I'm glad the cat didn't get baked!!!
And the dog!!! Poor babeeee......Those are funny!

(I keep the power window button on lock now, cause my lil dog used to open the back windows and one day I thought he jumped out cause I coudlnt' find him.....I was on a highway going bout 65 and I almost had a heart attack...but he was there...on the floor).

Peace

deb said...

That was great. Thanks for the laughs. I actually had a tabby cat name Bratt cat while growing up. She would sit on and pee in the toilet. She lived to be 20

TentCamper said...

That is classic! That happned with my dog too. Had to start using the child locks on the windows. The cat story is great...poor thing.

How is it that you always get me laughing?

leezee52 said...

I also have to check to see if my cat Emme is in there too...funny! I have to keep the washer lid opened for about 15 minutes to let it dry out so it won't smell.

snowniece- Laughing is always a good thing for our stress levels!
morgy- My 1st Airedale ate a box of Crayolas the kid left out.. Next day crapped in Technicolor...
odat- My 1st cat(being taken to the vet) got inside the dashboard, laying on top of the glove box...
deb- Cats are way smarter than they let on. They don't want to raise our expectations of them!
tenter- I'd rather tell funny stuff than unfunny stuff- anyday!
leezee- Cats usually stay out of harms way pretty good, but not all the time!

Anndi said...

That's exactly why I never open the car windows with the dogs inside.

Poor babies... *snort*

Glad they weren't hurt.

Jeff B said...

Better the dryer than the microwave I suppose.

funny stuff

Claudia said...

And they say dogs are dumb.....*grins*, I would stay as far away from the window myself...and it is something I would do, too.

Casdok said...

Oh how funny! But glad noone was hurt!

Tanya Kristine said...

that was probably a blesssing in disguise. like when my dog, who used to ALWAYS escape my back yard, got hit by a car? Never did it again. I always said every dog i get, i'm goingto run over it with a car and then i'll solve the problem before it starts! aren't i smaht??

buffalodickdy said...

anndi- She's the only dog that I ever had that would try to get out of the window to get at another dog!
jeff- I think they do have 9 lives...
claudia- The mini van we have now doesn't have windows that work that way...
casdok- No, they were both fine- just a little trauma and drama...
Tanya- I know you wouldn't do that!

Queenie said...

Just come back from the coast with my two dumb mutts (both rescue), wondering why me. So good to read there are other plonkers in the world, who will see the humour in returning to your car after leaving said mutts in for no more than 5 minutes whilst trying to purchase a parking ticket. Open car door to a pile of chair padding and a gear knob to fall onto the floor.
Bless um!!!!!

buffalodickdy said...

Queenie- Funny in the same manner! I'm getting blood drawn for some tests, and the place I'm at has the quickest, cutest, faster-than- spit 3 yr. old, that had her mom leaping up every 10 seconds, to chase & capture her... The little girl was angelic,but determined- and the Mom had Job's patience, but just as determined to save her from harms way.. I got to see how Love works firsthand, with the Children and the Beasts....

doggybloggy said...

too many animals have passed this way to have stories I can process - I grew up with 30 odd sheep, a milk cow or two 10 or so goats and gads of chickens some cats some dogs and the predators that prey on them. My grandfather always told a story about a donkey he had that responded to its name and always tried to poke its head in the door....funny

Urban Vegan said...

These stories are a scream! I am crying with laughter ;)

My sweetest cat story is that my old, now-departed Boo Boo Kitty (who was 19 when she died) actually sent Omniman an e-mail once, hitting the return button before I could.

Roger said...

hahahaha good story's Buff!

buffalodickdy said...

DogB- To go from country livin' to NYC must have been exciting and a little weird... I suspect having pets in your situation would be really hard... You are primal in your desire for fresh food- I think maybe you might return to the land someday- just to show some folks living in the city, how good it can be!

buffalodickdy said...

UrbanV- Your story was short, and perfectly sweet! My 1st dog locked me out of the house once- but that is a whole post on its' own!

buffalodickdy said...

Rog- With your photos, and my meandering writing skills, we could make history!

TavoLini said...

hahahahahaha--that's so funny! I'm glad neither of the animals were hurt!

As for electric windows--I actually had a similar accident--except it involved my own fingers--ow! To this day I am leery of electric windows (and will never own a car with them!)

Beth said...

"Numb nuts" LOL!!!! I love pet stories...and I think Clara and I would get along just fine...!!!!

Bina said...

I dried a kitten once in my dryer, but only for a bout two minutes. I remember that fluffy, dizzy look well.

And my God the dog story is SO funny! I actually rolled my ex husband's head up in the window one time. I didn't know it until he started screaming. People started staring, laughing, and he was SO mad! I asked him why he had his head stuck out in the window anyway. I mean, am I supposed to check for that before rolling the window up??? LOL

Mona said...

LMAO! I can really Picture those scenes! they are so Vivid! I had a cat called Dizzy! & O The tales about her! Animals proved us with a lot of entertainment too! :D :D

buffalodickdy said...

lini- I got my kids arm once- almost! He was having a rough year- for a 10 yr. old!
Beth- If you like big dogs with limited intelligence- You'd love Clara...
bina- Somehow I knew you'd have a couple of good ones on this. Ex-husbands' head? You win!
Mona- If I didn't have my dog to talk to, no one would listen! The cat- well, cats don't listen to anyone- they think they are the center of the Universe!

deb said...

I read this one again but this time to my hubby this morning. It's even funnier the second time you read it. I love the dizzy pissed of cat. lol!good read

Brings back window scratching memories of my own. :)
